We were unsure where to stay after coming from the Thompson in Playa. We were thrilled to have booked CasaSandra. Definitely the best beach, a couple minutes walk to town to our favorite restaurants. The hotel is impeccable, we had King Suite room with the view. We walked and toured the other hotel and stoke we went with this one....

The resort was beautiful and the customer service was top notch!! They took care of us well. We were in a pinch to get to a wedding on time and our room was not available yet. They allowed us to use the spa area to shower and get changed and even had housekeeping iron our clothes for us!! The only...

I was staying at another hotel in the island, but we came here for a nice and romantic dinner based on the opinions I've read in the site. For starters when we came in the place was deserted and dark, long time until we got the attention of the hotel staff. Place is nicely decorated but definitely the service is...

Save your money & don't book a "Deluxe Ocean Suite" at Casa Sandra. Our room did not have an ocean view at all and we were offered a room with 2 full beds. My 6 foot tall boyfriend & I had to sleep back to back or fall off the bed or sleep in separate beds. We complained, were offered...

I honestly cannot say enough about this resort. It is a gem in the middle of Holbox. I place I had never heard of until my husband decided to mark swimming with the whale sharks off his bucket list.

Pros: 1) great location (has a really nice beach bar/area), close to town but not IN town. One of the prettiest streches of beach in front of it (better than others closer to town and not far away from center.

The stay was great and the food was certainly delicious. The "Slow Food" restaurant next door was great as well. The travel accommodations were from the airport to the hotel and then back to the airport was not ideal. Especially given how much you spend. At similar hotels Black SUVs transported us there and back for cheaper than what we...

Since you arrive at Casa Sandra, the staff is very nice. The rooms have just the essentials and everything is organic, but they do have A/C. Everything is really clean. The food was amazing! And the little town of Holbox is walking distance from the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For a long time owner, Sandra, wanted to write by the sea. She went in search of a remote world, quiet, where the blue was obvious. One day, she landed in Cancun and the attraction of the Mayan land was overwhelming. She took a small plane and flew over the island of Holbox.Nothing was more attractive to her than the Feast of the colors of nature, barefoot fishermen with their gold teeth, women weaving hammocks or sheathed with their heels in the sand. "I want to do something here, " she said and began to imagine in her head this project now called "the hotel with a human touch" on this very beach.The land of more than 150 species of birds, whale shark, or Damero world's largest fish, mangroves in each corner, all were an inspiration to this artist.Then she wanted to welcome friends from around the world and to express, through a hotel on the island of Holbox, a point of view on life: "peace and art are a great treasure for humans. " Because of this she thought of a place that is romantic, sexy, creative, where the personalized, warm, rustic atmosphere in a luxurious twenty rooms that look to the sea, where one could meet the privacy and whims of its guests. All done out of love and passion. The same place where one can dream and create, and in the best case, where one can rest.The joy of giving and expressing a new way of caring for guests, has been the commitment of the hotel. Every detail has a reason: from the small art gallery with paintings by renowned artists to the beautiful furniture that inhabit the halls.Feelings, emotions, poetry, touches of color, aromas of black coffee, hammocks, fabric on the balconies, fluffy sheets, the sea at every angle, and romantic evenings create the magic of the "place of your dreams." ... more   less
