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.

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...

We just got back home from a wonderful stay at Hotel La Palapa in Isla Holbox. Located just off the main town square, this hotel is in a great location right on the beach with a restaurant/bar and lawn chairs provided for guests. The room was clean and simple with an authentic decor, including a hammock right near the window...

We arrived at La Palapa in Holbox as the first part of our journey through the Yucatan. The place has a private beach with sun beds and has a nice relaxed vibe, and so does the whole island. It's quiet and laid back, the beach is clean (cleaner than many other streches) and the guys in the beach bar are...

The rooms are plain but clean, not much storage for clothes had to keep everything in suitcases. Grounds, location and staff makeup for any short falls on storage. We really enjoyed our visit and will be back. Enjoyed having the restaurant onsite and found them very helpful and great to have breakfast right on the beach.
