The hosts are amazing. The view of the sea is fantastic The room were beautiful
The best part about my stay was going to bed each night listening to the sound of the waves. The apartments are perfectly situated, and give you that feet in the sand feel, even when you’re sitting in the kitchen. The apartment is comfortably furnished and has plenty windows for light and for taking in the beautiful views.
It would have been nice to have daily cleaning of the apartment, but that would surely raise the nightly rate, so I am content with the current set-up.
We spent a full week at Holbox Apartments staying in the floor-level apartment. John & Mandy were wonderful! They were always there when we needed something, and we were happy to ring in the New Year with them! Lots of great memories were made, and we didn't want to leave. We plan to return again in the near future!
As far as accommodations go, we were pleased, as they were what we expected. Don't forget bug spray, as mosquitos come out when the sun goes down!
The owners are super friendly and very helpful. Very spacious room with big terrace see view and hammocks. Breakfast provided in 2 restaurants very close by with different options. We would definitely stay here again!!!
Thank you Mandy and John your house is amazingly beautiful and you are the most friendly people. Every detail is carefully selected and in a friendly environment environment. You make this experience simple amazing and Holbox as you know is a Paradise. I would like recommend you please let me know in what webpage please. Surely we will see you soon Back to the game!
We (a group of three adults) had the pleasure of spending 5 nights in the beautiful apartment (2 bedrooms + kitchen). We were amazed at the peace and quiet that surrounded us. The grounds are beautiful; you feel like you have your own exclusive piece of land by the beach. Everything was perfect, from the wonderful hostess Mandy, to the cleanliness of the grounds and the apartment itself, to the staff that works to keep it all perfect and the lovely people from Holbox. We loved it so much we are already planing our next visit and recommending it to all our friends! See you soon Mandy and John!
Holbox is a nice island with really friendly and open people! The guesthouse is a nice place with a beautiful view and a friendly owner. It's close to town center and next to the beach.
There were some issues that were pretty annoying. The first one was that the breakfast included isn't actually in the guesthouse itself rather than a 10 minute walk away in one of two restaurants. It is possible that those restaurants are not open and as an alternative the owner will reduce 55 pesos per person from the final bill. The problem is though, that you can't get an actually good breakfast for this 55 pesos (they start at 65..). We were lucky that one of the restaurants called "la chaya" opened the second day and the breakfast there was really good. Second problem was the service in the guesthouse. We found it on booking.com and it had a 4 star rating from which we expected a certain standard which wasn't fulfilled - no pool - no in-house breakfast...). - the cleaning service is only once every three days (which is a rather big problem if you can't flush the used toilette paper and have to throw it in a bin) - problem with payment. We were told that we can only cash what's pretty unusual. After we couldn't get the cash we were offered to pay with paypal, but we as customers had to pay the 5% fee on paypals commercial transfers (which should be paid by the business, as stated in the paypal terms)
The guesthouse is great, the owners even better. They made us feel at home and were very helpful and providing suggestions for our staying. Really the best place to be in the Holbox island!
For me it was the perfect place to arrive in a foreign country. This wonderfull Island, the amazing Guesthouse (none of the fotos is lying) and Especially the hosts John and Mandy helped me to reach immediately my well feel mood to start my five month adventure in Mexico! It's worth each centavo!
Very interesting, welcoming and helpful Dutch landlords (John & Mandy) with a lot of stunning life stories who always try to facilitate your requests even on a very short notice and usually succeed in doing so. High quality of living and a clean and nice bathroom. Even drinking water and a personal safe is included. A very good value-for-money ratio for a cozy surrounding and amazing stay in Holbox.
The mosquito net for the bed was not really insectproof but this is really a minor point of criticism and not too important since the room itself is equipped with nets on the windows.
You never feel you are in a hotel, you feel like in a friend's home
Lovely place - nice owners, who gave us good tips for restaurants and sights. Wonderful suite with a nice balcony and tender style
Amazing location, amazing patrons, extremely tidy and clean. John and Mandy help you with everything they can, 2 weeks of bliss and total relaxation.
If you plan to go to Holbox you can't find a better place than John and Mandy's apartments. We stayed there for 5 nights and we just loved it. The apartments are pretty big, we had a very nice bathroom (beautiful shower), a huge bed and an amazing view over the beach and the sea from our own balcony. Everything was perfectly clean and what we really appreciated was John and Mandy's loving and hearty way to deal with just every question or problem we've had. They recommended the best places for dinner to us, they helped us with booking an amazing whaleshark tour and reliably organised our transfer back to the airport in Cancun. Thank you for everything!!
John & Mandy are AMAZING guests, friendly and welcoming. They helped us organizing our activities in a very limited time! The location is good and the beach so quite. Rooms are spatious and perfectly clean!
John & Mandy were excellent hosts and kind of like our guardian angels - always present when you had a question and wanted their advice, but never ever in the way or a bother. They helped us with a taxi transfer back to Cancun and restaurant recommendations - all which proved to be top-notch. The place is well situated - just a 7 minute walk from town so you can sleep quietly at night and not be disturbed by any noise from the revelers in some of the bars. We loved that it felt less like a hotel and much more like a home - with only (3) apartments for guests, it was relaxing to not see lots of other guests. We enjoyed the privacy and laid-back nature that comes with a small-operation like this. The apartment was well-equipped. Kitchen has what you need to make everything, fresh drinking water, large fridge. Lots of storage for clothes and two hammocks that we never left! Breakfast was a breeze - John & Mandy give you vouchers to get breakfast at two local restaurants - your pick. Our favorite was La Chaya, as it was a local spot and nothing beats an authentic Mexican breakfast. The bay on which the guesthouse is situated is picturesque but not my absolute favorite for swimming, so my husband and I walked to the beach to the right for swimming purposes. For those of you looking for a pristine Disneyland beach, this is not it. This area of Isla Holbox is all natural, meaning you will see seaweed and signs of REAL nature on the shore. That's part of the charm, so if that's not your scene, head down the road for a more touristy atmosphere. Nothing beats watching the sunset on the bay just steps from the guesthouse, either. Thanks again for an amazing stay guys!
The smallest gripe ever - the wifi was a touch slow. But, this is Holbox, and once I had a few days to relax, I hardly cared! If anything, it was good because it made me realize I should unglue myself from my phone.
Es un excelente lugar, todos los servicios ofrecidos son muy buenos, la vista al mar, el desayuno es una muy agradable experiencia. La atención personalizada es muy cálida, los propietarios son excelentes anfitriones. Me encantó¡¡¡¡ This place is a dream ! I am travelling a lot, and these were the best vacations of my life, the warm welcoming of John & Mandy is more than perfect, you really feel like home ! :) This place is so beautiful, the suite has everything you can dream of and the breakfast (especially at La Chaya) is awesome. Everything is clean and so beautiful, I would litteraly live there... forever ! John even planned our return, took care of the taxi & the other one from Chiquilla to the airport too... I can only think of one thing : the moment I'll be back there ! (and I will !) I really recommend this place to anyone, best place I ever been to. No exageration. Thank you very much for everything ! You are fantastic !!!
The place looks amazing and is very clean. Beautiful location with a private beach, palm trees in the yard and white sand beach. John and Mandy are great people they took very good care of us. They helped us arrange a Whaleshark tour and helped us hire a golfcart to ride around the island with. Best place I've been in Mexico!!
John and Mandy are really kind in all the situations. They helped us a lot to plan the best whale shark tour and the tour of the island. They know everyone on the island and their advices were always really good. We arrived at 5 a.m. And left at 4 a.m. And there were at the door welcoming us. The room at the first floor is amazing very clean beautiful ocean view, 2 amaca inside, potable water and a king bed. Everything was perfect
Nothing. We would have stayed more time
John & Mandy are great hosts. They were reallly kind and helpful and gave great advices about where to eat or where to book any activities in the island. Absolutely fantastic!
We just loved it!! We almost have no words about how to describe the apartment, it was so beautiful and we will surely go back to John and Mandys place if we return to Isla Holbox someday. The location is great –imagine laying looking at the sunset while laying in your bed and having the ocean and the beach right in front of your. Also, the landlords John and Mandy are the best landlords! They was so helpful and answered our questions with a smile on the face. No question is to big for them. They will do whatever they can to make sure you have a great stay. They will always be in our memory and when we think of them we always smile.
John and Mandy were the MOST accommodating hosts. Always willing to listen and please. Location is absolutely EXCELLENT! As we walked around, we felt we had chosen the PERFECT spot on the island. The Whale Shark tour was worth every penny. Highly recommend.
We prefer no air conditioning but folks who need it (when the sea breeze is not enough) might not be satisfied. As far as we were concerned, everything there was AMAZING!
John and Mandy were excellent hosts. They are very friendly and welcoming. The apartment had a beautiful view with sunsets. It was clean and very tropical. We enjoyed everything! Michelle and Keith
The location is excellent. It is far enough from the centre of town to be quiet at night, but a short walk gets you to the restaurants and bars surrounding the city square. The owner/operators John and Mandy, treat you like family, and help organise pretty much anything you want to do on the island, as well as transport to and from Isla Holbox. The ground floor apartment was well equipped with fridge, cooking facilities and ceiling fans in every room. Comfy beds and good bathroom facilities also. We cant wait to visit the island again, and will definitely stay with John and Mandy again.
The apartment was fabulous great location the island itself was paradise
