We stayed from April 8 to April 12 at the Hotel. When we arrived Hector (I believe) greeted us warmly and was very helpful. Our room was almost perfect, we had a balcony as requested with two hammock chairs. A bit light on surfaces/desk to be able to organize your clothing and personal effect if you are there for a...

My wife and I stayed here based on the recommendation of numerous friends in Meixco City that travel regularly to Isla Holbox. We were told it was the place for 'those in the know' - personally I was a little dubious given that it was referenced as a B&B and some of the photos I saw suggested it might be...

Miguel and Jessica are fantastic hosts. Nancy is a wonderful Masseuse. And Hector is charming and helpful in the main office. It was a very nice stay and I highly recommend it.

Absolutely sublime! Extremely friendly staff. We will be back. If you want to forget your everyday life and just relax, then this is the right place to do it 🙂 The hotel is 100 meters from the shore line. Food is excellent. They will organize all your tours. You don't need to worry.

Casa Iguana is a very good option in Holbox. Quality/price ratio is excellent compared to other hotels in the island and it lies just behind Casa Sandra, one of the Holbox's best and most expensive hotel. Location is great, probably the best part of Xolbox's beach. Rooms are brand new, very well decorated, with air condition and very fast Wi-Fi....

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...
