From start to finish our experience at Palapas del sol was a glimpse of paradise. We were greeted by Martin and felt both welcomed and at home right away. The warmth and genuine caring expressed by the staff made this an exceptional trip. The food was freshly prepared, authentic and top notch. The whole property is cared for with great...

My girlfriend and I have just spent 10 days in Holbox. June 4 to 15 (2016). Although there were concerns about the time of the year and possible bad weather, we needed not to worry. There was the odd thunderstorm but it wasn't long before the sun shined again and the temperature rose. Holbox is amazing and we stayed at...

Stunningly beautiful location, great breakfast and everything was very clean. However, we found the staff to be quite unfriendly... really only the guy that was working on the pool smiled at us! Eddies mango daiquiri was amazing!

Returned after 11 months, found a different place. It had doubled in size, it went from 8 units to 15 and it seems to be still adding. We found the personal service was missing and not like the previous trip. Construction noise was also a problem not only at Palapas del Sol but also next door where they are building...

I am a bit reluctant to leave this review because I selfishly want to keep this place a secret but we had such an amazing experience the hotel deserves the accolades. It was our first trip to Holbox after more than a decade of visits to Isla Mujeres, and Holbox did not disappoint - this hotel was a major part...

Such an amazing place. It's not fancy or high-end. It's a very mellow and low key place with the basics for necessities. The staff here is wonderful! It's not easy to access from the airport, but there is a nice feeling of arriving at a place where time has stopped. The inn is on the beach, and I don't know...

Our second year in a row at Palapas del Sol. Made us feel like family again, Holbox is growing a bit & Palapas del Sol has grown a bit as well, but still a very small intimate place with the most amazing staff, great beach & fantastic food. Ran into, unplanned, a family that we met on our last visit...

Extremely pleased with our stay at Palapas del Sol. We had a lower level King Suite (7P) which is a newer unit. It was airy and spacious with lovely views of of the gardens, pool and a peek of the ocean and horizon. We were at the back of the property but didn't mind. All was quiet and peaceful for...
