We loved this hotel, the location to the beach is unbeatable. It was so unique and thoughtfully decorated- from the exposed beams to the hammocks and conch shell sink fixtures- every detail was thought out making the resort really feel like it we got the true Isla Holbox experience. The restaurant was a great option for breakfast and lunch on...

I was there for 4 nights and had an absolutely outstanding time. The hotel oozed charm. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach in front of the hotel was great, offering many places to read, sun or just enjoy the day. The hotel is situated, conveniently, in the heart of town. If you want the old world charm...

The location of this hotel is ideal. Just steps away from the beach and a nice restaurant. Not overcrowded with lounge chairs, Very pleasant staff. Last minute booking so we got an economy room which did not have a refrigerator. But the room was spacious with a nice walk-in shower, Would not hesitate to choose this hotel on a return...

I had a great stay here. In my opinion, the stretch of beach right out front of the hotel is the best in the area. And you can buy a coconut right next door! Great location if you want to be close to the town, too.

Hello Alicia. Thank you very much for your comment. We are very happy that your holiday in Holbox and in our Hotel were very pleasant. Being very close to the beach, sleeping and waking up to the sound of the sea waves, is priceless. The staff of La Palapa and Restaurant, we appreciate your visit and we hope to see...

Nice room With partly seaview. Privat Beach with sufficient number of sunbeds. Super friendly staff, both in the restaurant and reception. If we go back to Isla Holbox, we would consider the same hotel again.

Great place, great location - all the rooms have good views. Staff is very helpful and Veronica in the restaurant was super helpful with great tips on places and things to do. While it is very close to town, and was noisy at night due to Carnival going on last week, it is a wonderful spot - would highly recommend.

Hotel La Palapa is RIGHT on the beach! Also located conveniently next to a delicious, authentic seafood restaurant "Las Panchas" and an easy 3 block walk from downtown plaza of Holbox. The staff at La Palapa is helpful, efficient and knowledgeable. Most speak Spanish, English and some Italian. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We had a king balcony room...

We stayed only one night to check out Isla Holbox for a future trip. This hotel is a good bargain/value -- Mexican beach rustic -- but not luxurious. The front office staff are very friendly and helpful. The property has a small beach and you can walk up and down the beach from this location. there are plenty of lounge...

You can't go wrong with this location if you want a small to midsize boutique hotel. There are a lot of dumps on the island and some other large resorts. This is just right. Great location on the beach and close to everything downtown. No tv but great balcony with hammock. Wonderful restaurant on location. One negative is that there...
