10.0 Excellent

7.5 Good
Pros: Beautiful setting just off the beach in a jungle like atmosphere!
Cons: A bit on the spendy side for our one night stay compared to similar locations -
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities such as the beach and the restaurant but also the beach bar. The hotel looks like a jungle, very magical
Cons: Sometimes the service at the restaurant was slow and they couldn't remember things we ordered
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was very big and very nicely decorated. It felt like we were staying in an apartment. It is not located on the center, but it takes about 8 minutes to walk to center of Holbox.
Cons: The wifi wasn't working all the time, but it was due to the weather conditions.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, all inclusive quality and price , space for kids to run around and the iguanas!. Also Luis from the midnight shift was amazingly helpful when my kid got sick and he took us to the doctor at 2am, waited for us and brought us back since there are no taxis at that time at night.
Cons: customer service is not always their highest priority
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Beach, Breakfast, staff moved us to a ground floor room when I explained that stairs were a problem.
Cons: Afternoon meals used too much oil. Other than that, no other issues.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Very beautiful and tasteful hotel. Friendly professional staff. Comfortable and quiet.
Cons: The food was a bit bland. Also would have preferred to have the beach sitting area to be located closer to the water.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Location.
Cons: The structure is old and mainly for families. No gluten free options at breakfast. Too expensive if you look at the rooms and at their facilities. Limited sun-beds and you literally need to rush in the morning if you want to be on the beach front.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A perfect combination of luxory and nature. Uniqe decor and a friendly staff. Close to the central area
Cons: The tours offered by the hotel are quite expensive
7.0 Good
Pros: Newer and nicer hotel in Holbox.
Cons: Too many families for my preference. We were a couple looking for quiet relaxation and there were a lot of kids running around the property. I think it's a great hotel for families but we will be staying at a more adults only resort next time in Isla Holbox.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I strongly recommend the hotel, nice, well located in front of the amazing beach of holbox. Food was perfect and the people very nice.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location was great.
Cons: I booked an ocean view and my room didn’t have that. It had a view of the pool and restaurant. At 5am in the morning you could hear Dishes clanging.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Style of the place
Cons: - Very few beach beds so people started to put theier towls on them very early in the morning - beach towels were in bad condition and you had to be kucky to get one as there were to few for all guests - There was only 3 rental bikes and those are comoletely run down - staff is rly loud in the morning an late in the evening. One gatdener started playing loud misic at 04:30 in the morning - There seems to be no manager on site and the english off most of the staff ist to basic in order to adress complaints
7.0 Good
Pros: The location is top, the team very reactiv, the hotel very comfortable. Historical feedbacks about the bar and restaurant have been fixed, good point.
Cons: Maybe the next challenge for the management is to foster a team spirit (for example now every body work for his own tips) which will be the best UX empowerment for visitors. Tip for the management regarding the birds who carjack the breakfast, it exists ultrasonic sound devices who keep away the birds from a place ;)
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location just set back from the beach. comfy rooms nice big beds, big TV. Nice private plunge pool. Very clean and well maintained.
Cons: Seagulls stealing everybody’s food at breakfast, this needs to be managed better (e.g. nets or some type of repellent). Every time we went to reception we had to queue and there weren’t very helpful. E.g. we were told there were bikes available, so we tried to rent them and there were only 2 children’s bikes available and these were priced much higher than the rest of the island. Tried to order drinks by our pool but there was no room service at the hotel. Ordered fish tacos at the restaurant, 15 minutes later the the waiter told me they got it wrong and offered me the chicken tacos for free instead. Then when the bill came they tried to charge us. There’s not even complimentary water offered in the rooms, they charge 40 pesos for a tiny bottle of water. This is taking advantage of guests who have already paid a significant price to stay at this hotel, things like water should certainly be included.
4.5 Okay
Pros: The rooms are fairly well appointed, the location is decent.
Cons: The staff are pretty bad at this property - very low customer service. The food/restaurant is also mediocre, at best. Lastly, ensure you check your hotel bill upon checkout - we were traveling with 2 other couples, and every one of us had mistakes/overcharges on the bills - some significant.
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Holbox Dream Beach Front Hotel by Xperience Hotels in Isla Holbox, you'll be on the beach, within a 15-minute drive of Holbox Beach and Punta Mosquito Beach. Featured amenities include multilingual staff and luggage storage.
6.2 Good
Pros: The location on the beach is its saving grace.
Cons: The service at the hotel was almost amusingly indifferent. The front desk staff were of no use for any questions (yet for some reason about ten of them lingered there). The hotel has different level rooms and my understanding is that third floor rooms are nice and private, but our second floor pool facing room almost felt like a hostel - we heard every move of our neighbors and of the entire hotel. There is zero privacy. The beach access is great but since the room has no beach view it almost makes more sense to book a nicer place a few blocks from the beach. The hotel is clean but definitely very basic.
4.0 Okay
Pros: Beach is good, breakfast good
Cons: Lack internet throughout the property. Lack of items listed on the menu. No cold beer
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything pretty much
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was in a great location that was within walking distance to everything on the island. Staff were extremely pleasant. The breakfast provided was a nice selection.
Cons: I wish there was more of a beachfront with lounge chairs by the water in a space without loud music.
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice breakfast, friendly staff, pretty room. Great location and fantastic beach. Very nice front desk personnel.
Cons: The lounge beds on the beach were disgusting. Ripped torn with wood sticking out. And there were not enough chase lounges for guests so it became a competition everyday:(
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great, location, staff, breakfast.
Cons: the bed was not comfortable at all, no bath towels provided, face cloths not replaced for all of our 3 days there
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, staff and rooms. I would stay here again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Holbox dream was right on the ocean with great views. It was a quite, relaxing and just a great place to enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of life. The location was only three blocks from the center of town via the beach, which was a beautiful walk by the way! The conch showers and sinks were a nice touch, the A/C worked great and the beer was cold!
7.0 Good
Pros: The outdoor area was great. Close to great restaurants. Late night bar. We have been to Holbox many times and it was about what can be expected.
Cons: There was no real WiFi in rooms. Only two towels each day. The service staff was great but management often unresponsive with the exception of one young man.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Clean facilities. Very friendly staff. Convenient to restaurants, bars and activities.
Cons: No television. No washcloth. Beach chairs are limited.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: Beach front ,open dining, great location , friendly staff
Cons: Room not very welcoming, no art work , no coffee machine, just very plain. But for the price , it will do

9.6 Excellent
Pros: This property is simple, older and definitely not posh but it makes up for it with a rough around the edges, homey charm. Half a block from the beach and a short walk to the noisy centre of town makes it quiet and cosy location. A lovely staff, clean room, comfortable bed, nice little pool, and good food and drinks we had everything we needed for an excellent stay in Holbox.
7.5 Good
Pros: Nice “beach” rooms (not so big). The beach nearby is very beautiful and cosy. The restaurant serves good food.
Cons: There was no fridge in the room
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is very nice. Quiet, 10 min. walking from the center. Very nice swimming pool. 1 block from the beautyfull beach.
Cons: There is no fridge in room. Even small one will be perfect:)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely place. Would stay here again.
Cons: Bed sheets were clean but torn in places and stained.
9.2 Excellent
Cons: ants in the room (small and few, but still), WiFi didn’t work too well, in our room the ceiling should have been painted to cover the mosquito marks. But overall great location, super nice staff and if I was to travel to Holbox again, I’d definitely book this hotel!
4.6 Okay
Pros: Comfortable beds, nice pool, nice breakfast, quiet at night.
Cons: Couldn’t check in until 3:30 and the room was not clean. There was no water to be had on the property so we had to wade 4-5 blocks to buy water to drink. Staff was nice as people but not really interested in being attentive to guests. No beer in the restaurant/bar. Wifi nonexistent but that is an island problem. The whole property was underwater and we had to wade to our room and restaurant. Overall, not impressed although the owner/manager gave us a bottle of wine to make up for the deficiencies. That was nice but it could be a really nice place if they just did a few things like clean the rooms properly, give a few extra towels and glassware, a mini fridge would be nice and some 5 gallon containers of water so that you could fill your containers. Sorry but I can’t give this place a good review as it stands.

5.8 Okay
Pros: They should wash the beach and clear the street from water. Especially when you are far from the center.
Cons: Nice pool and nice sunbeds
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel was so special. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. We came from Valladolid, for my birthday, and they made a huge effort to help me celebrate! When we arrived the room was decorated in balloons, confetti, a towel “cake”... I wasn’t expecting it, since it was only s brief mention of my birthday when I got the booking. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and secluded. I love the white tents. It makes you feel like your own paradise... The beach bar was amazing!!!!!! Miguel and the staff were so kind, and helpful.. and the food was delicious!!! I hope this place doesn’t change with the change of the island. It’s perfect just the way it is.
Cons: Lol- the lizards who protect the swimming pool.. just kidding! They’re great too!!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: People
Cons: Excelente hotel, all employees are oriented to customer satisfaction, located in the best area of Holbox.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous! Right on the beach, it was a little piece of paradise. Staff were always friendly to help & the breakfasts included loads of great options. The perfect place to stay. LGBT friendly
Cons: WiFi didn’t work very well, but you wouldn’t want to be glued to your phone or laptop anyway here because there’s so much amazing stuff to see and do instead.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location on a wonderful stretch of clean beach. Away from the centre but close enough to walk to everything within a few minutes. Spacious room, quite basic but clean and comfortable.
Cons: Tea and coffee facilities in the room would have been great.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location - great beach space, lots of sandy beach and hotel lounge chairs. Water gradually gets deep and is pretty flat (small waves at most) great for children or anyone with mobility issues. Rooms are just off the beach so easy to go back and forth. Hotel restaurant offers a wonderful breakfast and is located right off the beach. “Town centre” is only 4 blocks from the hotel, is an easy walk even for my elderly mom. Hotel booked our transfer from Cancun airport to the hotel which took about 2 hours. It’s a bit more expensive service but was super Comfortable and easy.
Cons: No criticism other than its pricey!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We have stayed at hotel Puerto holbox 5 times over the past 2 years, staff has been very helpful and professional, we booked the airdrome room across the street the last 2 stays, very spacious room with kitchen and living area, beach as always was great, along with the overall holbox experience.
Cons: Mosquitos were present at dust and dawn, nothing a lot of off didn't fix
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We got an upgrade to their other hotel Flamingo.

7.0 Good
Pros: the location was nice, I wish there would have been more options and better coffee :-)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This resort is absolutely beautiful and clean! Only a few feet away from the beach, the staff make you feel like you are part of the family. There's only 1 restaurant in this resort but the food is absolutely delish!!! Must try THE CEVICHE!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It was close enough to nice spots right on the beach, but far enough from loud music and road traffic to make the stay very enjoyable. Nice that it has 2 pools, 1 for adults only! Staff was very accommodating and quick to respond to requests. Room was very clean
Cons: I was under the impression that there would be an ocean view. This was not the case, but only a minor inconvenience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice clean, tidy and not too large Hotel / Resort. Great value for the money, too. Just a few meters to the beautiful beach and 5 minutes to the center of the village Holbox. Nothing for people looking for partying and entertainment (bar closes at 9pm !)
Cons: The pool could have been less chilly.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, but the coffee was not hot.
Cons: Show head did not work as intended
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, very nice staff.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The bed was comfortable
Cons: The valué for money was poor, the price of the sea view bungalows was high considering their were dark and not well maintained. Sea view bungalows had very poor and partial sea view. The impression on the web site was of a boutique resort but the experience more of a budget bungalow hostel.
Hotel Villas Flamingos - Holbox - Building

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location/access to beach and most amazing spot on the island, breakfast, room view and bed, outdoor shower, private adults only pools
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location, the view, the design of the room and helpful staff
8.0 Excellent
Pros: A wonderful combination of casual and elegant. Something like luxury accommodation on Gilligan's Island. Lot's if nice little touches, like breakfast and bicycles included. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very quiet and extremely relaxing. It features great access to Holbox's famous beachwalk sandbar.
Cons: Not much. The menu was a little limited, but the chef is new and the island is remote.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had the honeymoon suit and must say that the place was just awesome. The beach is a dream and the apartments are done with great love to detail. It is nice that the beach beds are well separated so you can have some privacy even at the beach. Breakfast was great and the prices for dinner were okay, if the portions are a little small. Everything on the property was impeccably clean and inviting.
Cons: We didn't have working WiFi in the room. Only at the reception. As you have to order room service via Whats App, which requires internet, this is pretty impractical. Of course it is a luxurious place but the prices are maybe a bit unreasonably high. So we skipped the private beach dinner for 400€.
7.5 Good
Pros: Facilities incredible and really perfectly constructed. Breakfast ok.
Cons: First of all Front Desk should be nicer. You feel that you have to be thankful to stay and not the other way round. Furthermore the food has to improve. Price is for luxury stay so you have to deliver, also in a small island like Holbox. Was not our fist stay on island but other hotels far better food. Hope new chef is bringing improvements. All in all, very good installations but to be one of the best ion island you have to improve service and food. Also the very big adult only area is a downer for families. Especially when main pool is very cold in December and other smaller and warmer pools only for adults. Decide: You want to be a family hotel or adults only??!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything about this hotel and we hope very much to return.
Cons: A small thing but maybe more comfortable chairs on the balconies?

7.0 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed, quiet
Cons: Shower was poor
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The vibe was so peaceful.
Cons: It was a short (10 minute) walk from town but it wasn’t bad at all!
4.0 Okay
Pros: Ada in reservations was simply lovely
Cons: Suuuuuper small rooms, like ridiculously small! Really uncomfortable bed. WiFi didn’t work AT ALL, hot water not so much. The beach club close by was uncomfortable and the beach was full of algae. Way better places for 10 more USD so really spend that few more bucks!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The beach was really nice and really close. Breakfast is great!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Decoration and staff were great. Breakfast is nice and products sources responsibly. Lovely stay overall. Just a few minuses.
Cons: Wifi didn't work for the whole of our stay and we had to go to other buildings. The shower head was really bad and would spray water everywhere. Maybe a bit more focus on function over decor would make it more pleasant. Bikes to rent are not the most comfortable.
7.0 Good
Pros: Lovely location very close to the beach. Helpful and nice staff who are clearly environmentally conscious. Refillable water, recycling etc. Nice breakfast area with free tea/coffee and honey! Large room
Cons: There is a new beach club which is directly between the hotel and the beach, which in our case directly in front of the room. This plays music from 11:00 - 18:00 thus no chance of a siesta/relaxing in the room during those hours. They do however offer 10% discount to guests.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Hosts and staff working in Casa Blat-Ha were very nice. Diana was great help and provided us with good tips about Mexico archeological sites and Holbox Island. She, Pol and Pol's mama made us feel at home. They are very caring about the environment and natural habitat of the island. The structure provides good breakfast using vegies growth in their own garden. Mexican ladies made super quesadillas with chila. You can watch them preparing your food.
Cons: I would add another chair in the terrace.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff is great. Pol was really helpful. Location is good and steps away from the beach. Complimentary coffee in the morning. We had a great time.
Villas Tiburon - Holbox - Bedroom
9
8.6 Excellent (857 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Villas Tiburon in Isla Holbox, you'll be on the beach, just steps from Holbox Beach and Punta Coco. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The cleanliness of the rooms and the kind staff were just a few of the amazing features of our visit. The convenience of having bicycles and the luxury of the rooftop bar were icing on the cake. The true gift was Anna, Paul and Jahir overseeing everything we may need even if it was just a bright smile and a gracious heart. The experience we have had here will last a lifetime. Our room was meticulously cared for by an amazing team and each greeted us with beautiful smiles every day.
Cons: Nothing it was absolutely perfect!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We did not expect to fall in love with an accommodation or the other guests that stayed here, but, we did! We originally booked for 6-7 days and ended up canceling another accommodation the day before we were supposed to move. Paul and the concierge desk provided us with the opportunity of a possible cancellation opening, we jumped at the chance! 12 days we stayed with the Villas Tiburon Family. When we met a beautiful dog from the Refugio de Holbox, the staff were MORE than accommodating and willing to welcome the new member of our family, Ruffus! The booking.com site stated that Villas Tiburon was not pet-friendly and that will need to be changed, this home away from home is very welcoming to our new pet. Ruffus was able to stay in our room the entire visit and interacted daily with the wonderful people working for this amazing place. We met many friends with like minds, mature, quieter, earth conscience, sun-loving savvy travelers and shared great times with them and our new friends that work for the hotel. We were blown away by the serenity and how carefully the staff took care of us and every need we had. The rooms are HUGE, immaculate and provided crisp clean linens that felt amazing on our torched bodies. The mini-fridge came in handy for all of the food leftovers that we thought we would eat, eventually, it was only filled with fresh juice from the market and cold water to explore with daily. The beach is yet another shining star for this lovely accommodation. Palapas filled quickly with "beach club" users, naturally because it was THE BEST BEACH! Staff shuttled extra lounges and curried food and drinks to each person with a beautiful smile and Jahir saying "It is my pleasure" or, "It would be my pleasure", what was amazing is that he meant it, as did every other person that we encountered. Paul, Anna, and Ari were a treasure that no other hotel we went to could claim to have.
Cons: We found it difficult to find a negative with this accommodation, I can only mirror other guests by saying that there was a not very nice or friendly bartender (female)in the restaurant, I am sure that she will improve her attitude or move to another accommodation that will tolerate her.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Although the location is not the best, the beach outside the hotel is comfortable. In addition, there is a good restaurant in the hotel next door.
Cons: The rooms are obscure and non-comfortable at all. The rooms on the first floor are very exposed to other people so there's no privacy. The pool can't be used and the first floor's restaurant is quite dirty. The hotel urgently needs a refurbishment.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: beach front location
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location just near the beach. The guys from the beachbar there are the nicest people we’ve met. They provide you with free beach beds based on your hotel booking. Rooms are nice, cute and clean and have a/c.
Cons: The showers could be refurbished.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Lovely to be on the beach, very clean and staff were friendly. Very easy to walk to the main town and also the sky bar is a great spot.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean with a couple of lovely courtyard setups. Staff were great and spoke English super well, responded to our queries really well. The restaurant on site is ok; loved the rooftop bar.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful, I can never say enough about Villas Tiburon! Our family loves you! Please see our other reviews for honest, recent experience. I am a tad worried that with the amazing work this place endures making your visit 10 stars, we will have a difficult time booking yearly. I will take that chance, This place is AMAZING, the people make it home! The hot and cold bottled water is something I keep forgetting to mention. This seems so trivial, but when you go to get a tall glass of water from your room you will find one within steps and it is ice cold (dispenser) or deliciously hot for coffee or tea. Such a small thing but this is a special place where the small things are thought of and the big things are standard!
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Checking out and moving to Blue Holbox
Cons: The hotel had no WiFi, showers didn’t work and the room was damp and smelly - also the double beds are so small and air con so loud! Just like some of the other reviews we experienced all these issues bad things on our first day/night. I could not shower for over a day which meant I had to delay my birthday celebrations. After raising this to management the problems were not rectified and they blamed the island! When I observed the staff on the internet I questioned this. Long story short.. to ensure a remaining happy vacation we asked to check out after the first night and asked for a refund for the remaining nights we didn’t intend to stay for. Management refused to refund so we contacted booking.com. They tried to call the hotel but the manager refused to answer the phone so we could not rectify the issue. So we checked out and went to blue holbox 600metres up from the hotel - they had working hot showers and WiFi so clearly not an island issue. Following this issue we have tried to raise this with booking.com to get a refund for the remaining nights! The complaint has been going on over a month, booking.com customer service is poor as I have had to repeat my story multiple times. They eventually offer £48 compensation! After refusing this offer and asking for my complaint to be escalated an offer of $20 compensation was made! Which doesn’t make sense!! My last email to booking.com included the CEO email address but I have had no response. Don’t stay here there are plenty of nicer places and staff elsewhere on the island for similar prices. Also don’t expect support from booking.com if you have an issue.

Pros: The waterfront location is amazing and so are the pools and the room. Everything super well kept and just a joy to stay at! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great wifi which can be an issue on the island. I would say that you need to be aware you are far away from Holbox town so you need to take a taxi (which is inexpensive on the island).
Cons: I would have expected a fridge in the very large room.

Cons: Located right next to the ferry and next to the local soccer field, where there is often some boise coming from. The whole compound is visable from the road as it is open to it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We really liked the location so close to the ferry. It was quiet as we were not right in town. The gardens and pool area were lovely. Salvador who cleaned our room was super helpful and made the most beautiful decorations in our room.
Cons: Would have liked more towel racks to hang things. Also would have liked a safe in our room.
5.1 Okay
Pros: Small hotel, clean enough and quiet
Cons: The hotel charged me 25% more than I reserved just because they decided a crazy exchange rate. They just want to make easy extra money. The internet doesn't work in the room just near to the lobby
7.1 Good
Pros: Welcoming owner, nice swimming pool area, close to ferry (center is 5-10 min walking), quiet and well functioning airconditioning
Cons: Bathroom is dirty and worn down in areas (broken off towel rack, hugely stained shower curtain, dirty shower head, etc), clogged shower drain Wi-Fi not functioning

Pros: It is normal hotel. Good place for families and ordinary people. Beautiful garden, night quiet, clean space.
Cons: Non. Just only mosquitoes, but it was our fault-we open window.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The only good point of the place is that it's central.
Cons: I didn't like anything! First there is hardly no WiFi, which is a lie. The patio is full of young people drinking beer, smoking and talking loud all night long. The rooms have no maintenance. Plus there is a slum right by the entrance, with ropes of laundry from the staff.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The aesthetics of the property are lovely, white and jungled, the breakfast terrace is gorgeous and the ladies on the desk were so sweet and helpful. The cleaning on the room was really thorough.
Cons: Room was just a little more basic than we had imagined although missing no amenities (other than maybe a fridge) and the beds were smaller than described.

Palapas del Sol - Holbox

8.9 Excellent (577 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What a gem by the emerald waters of the Yucatan. Small, quiet and lovely. The staff are kind and perfectly not overly attentive. If you want loud music, poolside service and to slurp down as many margaritas as possible this is not for you. If you want the dignity of getting up and walking 20 feet to get your own beer at the beachside bar - this is for you (and me). Delicious food. No reason to leave Palapas del Sol for anything except Whale Sharks.
Cons: Ok, a bit of construction noise but people do have to work for a living so go take a walk on the white powder sand beach and chill.

Pros: Location/access to beach and most amazing spot on the island, breakfast, room view and bed, outdoor shower, private adults only pools
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location, the view, the design of the room and helpful staff
8.0 Excellent
Pros: A wonderful combination of casual and elegant. Something like luxury accommodation on Gilligan's Island. Lot's if nice little touches, like breakfast and bicycles included. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very quiet and extremely relaxing. It features great access to Holbox's famous beachwalk sandbar.
Cons: Not much. The menu was a little limited, but the chef is new and the island is remote.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had the honeymoon suit and must say that the place was just awesome. The beach is a dream and the apartments are done with great love to detail. It is nice that the beach beds are well separated so you can have some privacy even at the beach. Breakfast was great and the prices for dinner were okay, if the portions are a little small. Everything on the property was impeccably clean and inviting.
Cons: We didn't have working WiFi in the room. Only at the reception. As you have to order room service via Whats App, which requires internet, this is pretty impractical. Of course it is a luxurious place but the prices are maybe a bit unreasonably high. So we skipped the private beach dinner for 400€.
7.5 Good
Pros: Facilities incredible and really perfectly constructed. Breakfast ok.
Cons: First of all Front Desk should be nicer. You feel that you have to be thankful to stay and not the other way round. Furthermore the food has to improve. Price is for luxury stay so you have to deliver, also in a small island like Holbox. Was not our fist stay on island but other hotels far better food. Hope new chef is bringing improvements. All in all, very good installations but to be one of the best ion island you have to improve service and food. Also the very big adult only area is a downer for families. Especially when main pool is very cold in December and other smaller and warmer pools only for adults. Decide: You want to be a family hotel or adults only??!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything about this hotel and we hope very much to return.
Cons: A small thing but maybe more comfortable chairs on the balconies?

Cons: The tours offered by the hotel are quite expensive
7.0 Good
Pros: Newer and nicer hotel in Holbox.
Cons: Too many families for my preference. We were a couple looking for quiet relaxation and there were a lot of kids running around the property. I think it's a great hotel for families but we will be staying at a more adults only resort next time in Isla Holbox.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I strongly recommend the hotel, nice, well located in front of the amazing beach of holbox. Food was perfect and the people very nice.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location was great.
Cons: I booked an ocean view and my room didn’t have that. It had a view of the pool and restaurant. At 5am in the morning you could hear Dishes clanging.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Style of the place
Cons: - Very few beach beds so people started to put theier towls on them very early in the morning - beach towels were in bad condition and you had to be kucky to get one as there were to few for all guests - There was only 3 rental bikes and those are comoletely run down - staff is rly loud in the morning an late in the evening. One gatdener started playing loud misic at 04:30 in the morning - There seems to be no manager on site and the english off most of the staff ist to basic in order to adress complaints
7.0 Good
Pros: The location is top, the team very reactiv, the hotel very comfortable. Historical feedbacks about the bar and restaurant have been fixed, good point.
Cons: Maybe the next challenge for the management is to foster a team spirit (for example now every body work for his own tips) which will be the best UX empowerment for visitors. Tip for the management regarding the birds who carjack the breakfast, it exists ultrasonic sound devices who keep away the birds from a place ;)
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location just set back from the beach. comfy rooms nice big beds, big TV. Nice private plunge pool. Very clean and well maintained.
Cons: Seagulls stealing everybody’s food at breakfast, this needs to be managed better (e.g. nets or some type of repellent). Every time we went to reception we had to queue and there weren’t very helpful. E.g. we were told there were bikes available, so we tried to rent them and there were only 2 children’s bikes available and these were priced much higher than the rest of the island. Tried to order drinks by our pool but there was no room service at the hotel. Ordered fish tacos at the restaurant, 15 minutes later the the waiter told me they got it wrong and offered me the chicken tacos for free instead. Then when the bill came they tried to charge us. There’s not even complimentary water offered in the rooms, they charge 40 pesos for a tiny bottle of water. This is taking advantage of guests who have already paid a significant price to stay at this hotel, things like water should certainly be included.
4.5 Okay
Pros: The rooms are fairly well appointed, the location is decent.
Cons: The staff are pretty bad at this property - very low customer service. The food/restaurant is also mediocre, at best. Lastly, ensure you check your hotel bill upon checkout - we were traveling with 2 other couples, and every one of us had mistakes/overcharges on the bills - some significant.
