My husband and I stayed with our teckel for 4 nights. We loved the hotel and the people there. We talked to the owners and felt happy to spend our money on a hotel owned by Mexicans and with a strong commitment to the environment. Breakfast is continental, with delicious home made carrot bread and brownies. If you want something...

Chose to come back to the restaurant/bar several times during our two-week stay in Holbox, for lunch and afternoon drinks. Very nice and good food, friendly and accomodating owners. Was not staying at the hotel, which was undergoing major reconstruction when we were there.

Beautiful beaches wonderful staff and very comfortable accommodations. We can't wait to go back next year . Easy walk into town for great restaurants and some very comfortable shopping. This is the opposite of the Cancun vacation, so if you want relaxation, good food and great swimming this is the place to go.

If you're looking for a good, nice, spacious and comfortable room this is not the place. But, if you are looking for a nice hotel and an unforgetable experience this is not the place either. You will end up paying thousands more than what it actually cost. This hotel is overpriced!!! And it is not true you can't get a...

Love this location so peaceful, the stff is nice and gave us good price. A bit of a 10-15 minute pleasant walk to the plaza but so worth the peace and tranquility. Placed our slack there for around 3 days and nobody moved it or complained so yay! Awesome place for this by the way. Great beach area almost private.

I enjoyed this hotel a lot. It's the perfect spot to stay since it's right outside the center so you don't have any noise. The hotel is super nice and great staff with excellent service. I really enjoyed the 4 nights we stayed and they even welcome dogs. I really recommend it for relaxing on the beach.
