We could not have been happier with our choice of La Palapa. It was very close to the water with many available beach chairs in the shade (which was important to me) and out in the sun, whatever you preferred, and there were a variety of types of chairs to choose from. Other hotels were set very far back from...

Last week i spend 3 days on the Holbox Island , and was an excellent and relaxing experience. Addittionnally to the excellent diving, rich fishing and grat fun at the hotel, I enjoyed one of the nicest views in my entire life. The hotel infraestructure is spectacular, rooms very comfortable and again with an excellent view.

We arrived on the island without having reserved,chose La Palapa because of it's reviews and because we did not find the one we were looking for and were absolutely delighted. From the very first contact at the reception the staff were great, helpful, friendly, efficient. Will certainly return for a longer stay.
