Score from 39 reviews Excellent
The location, the walk down the beach to town. The staff were very helpful and happy. There are comfortable places to get out of the wind and weather if needed.
There was a great deal of seaweed washed up on the beach. The staff did what they could to deal with it. It happens. No one's fault. We still enjoyed the hammock on the beach palapa.
Staff are great. Food is tasty. Beds are comfy. Quieter location. Water is lovely. Safe location.
It would be nice to have a safe for our valuables even though the island seems to be crime free. Sand flees and nosee'ems are bad at dawn and dusk which is annoying but not site specific.
Everything was great! When we came, Martin from the staff told us, the most important thing here is to relax, and we did. The staff and the atmosphere of the hotel really made us feel relaxed and comfortable. The rooms were amazingly beautiful! The air-condition and Wi-Fi worked just as they should. We really liked the common area with the kitchen where we had our breakfast and other meals. All food we tried was delicious. All in all, it was great value for the money. If I could come to Isla Holbox again, I would most certainly stay at Palapas del Sol.
Wonderful staff. Great home-stay atmosphere. Good restaurant. Fantastic beach. lovely boutique design
only the mosquitoes, and the staff provided all necessary creams and lotions and advice to avoid and treat bites
We enjoyed the slow pace, the attentive very helpful staff and the personalized approach to all our needs. Hopefully the developers will leave this little bit of paradise alone.
The hotel and its location right in front of the beautiful beach gives you breathtaking views of the gulf of Mexico. At check in you are welcomed with some delicious stringray empanadas. We liked them so much that we ordered them almost every day. The hotel is very cosy, you almost feel like you are staying at the home of Martin and Estella and the rest of the team. The rooms are in cabañas (palapas) and are spacious, cosy, clean and come with all amenities. Estella's no nonsense home cooking is absolutely delicious and made on the spot and right in front of you. Breakfast gets a 10! If there is anything else that you might need, tour info etc Martin is the guy to talk to. Me, my 7 month pregnant wife and our 18 month old daughter will recommend Palapas del Sol and Holbox Island to everyone.
Sincerely i can not find anything negative about this place.
Food, friendly staff, rooms
Set away from town theres only a couple hotels past this so its very quiet. Extremely peaceful. Wonderful restaurant. We received free "welcome empanadas" Family run, only 8 rooms I think. Beautiful beach. All the sea shells you will ever want. 15 min walk in to town square. pretty good wifi. Takes credit card for restaurant (pretty rare for area)
cant think of anything I didn't like.
the rooms, the kindness of the crew, the mango margaritas, the great service
The algae on the beach
First visit for us to Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. Holbox was all we expected and the hotel was excellent. Staff were extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation was clean and comfortable. Excellent vacation
No complaints at all.
Local staff is very friendly and helpful, we loved their cooking for us and organising tours and transportation. All facilities are well maintained and charming. Expect no luxuries in Holbox, but charm and comfort while enjoying nature in the Mexican Caribbean.
Mosquitoes, but you can keep them under control with lots of repelent. The hotel staff kindly provided all types of repelents.
Very nice place but should not cost as it is, more like a guesthouse and should cost like a guesthouse and should not cost like one of the most expensive hotels in Holbox. The food was very nice and not expensive.
The price: basic spartan rooms. The hotel does not believe in room keys and the room does not have a safe, only after asking for the key we got it with a lecture and a feeling that we did something wrong?!?! Cleanliness: there was blood stains on the pillow and the toilet was not that clean and got clogged all the time. Hot water only sufficient for one person. The pool was cold and there is no place to sit by the pool. Busy road runs by the hotel and the beach. The owner tried to charge us with an outrageous exchange rate.
This is by far one of the best places I stayed on my trips. Nice hotel, with home atmosphere, right on the beach, with palapa style cabins and very nice room decorated with local themes. Excellent staff, Martin is awesome and goes all the way to fulfill your requests at total satisfaction. We went there to our engagement that also happened to be my fiancee birthday. He prepared everything from a nice greeting detail made with local flowers on the bed the first day, the cake, the excellent dinner on the beach under the full moon, and many other details that felt like being at home. Excellent food, an honor system for the drinks, get what you want and record it on the whiteboard at any time of the day and night. Right on the beach with accomodation like bed, chairs or hammocks. Thank you Martin and the rest of the staff to make our engagement an unforgettable experience way beyond our wildest expectations. Definitively a place to come back. Room Tip: All the rooms are very good, your only issue is determine if you want upstairs or downstairs.
Only problem was the mosquitoes but is not a problem of the hotel is just the way it is in the island. However they have repellent for you at any time and along the way so you can alleviate the issue.
palapas del sol was by far the most amazing place on the island. The staff was attentive and friendly. The experience was exactly what we were looking for on this trip. cant wait to come back and bring my friends and family
Staff accommodating our dietary preferences, pool was clean and refreshing. Beds we comfortable. Grounds were well kept. Overall a great experience.
Location. Friendly staff. Very relaxed.
Only one member of staff spoke English
very personal service feels like home
There isn't anything to dislike. This place totally exceeded all expectations. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and cheap place to stay this is it. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend.
Location is nice and a little further from the city which makes the place very quiet. People are so pleasant and we feel like at home. A perfect place you would like to stay forever!
Quiet location. beautiful property. ocean location
commode stopped up couple times
Very warm welcome to this hotel. Clark was very attentive. After asking him to hold an item at reception that I had forgotten to return to our tour company, he actually hopped on his motorcycle and returned it for me saying that it would only take him 5 minutes. Wow, I don't think any other hotel staff would do the same. Nice to have hammocks close to the water.
The location, helpful service, beautiful room with privacy, the beach and the golf cart transport. Room cleanliness.
The staff was amazing. Made the best food we had in Mexico. I love their policy on getting anything you want on an honor system. The property was beautiful and the room I stayed in had a front patio with several hammocks and dining furniture right on the beach. Talk about paradise. The island is adorable as well. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on holbox.
The bugs but that obviously isn't the hotels fault. They actually leave a basket of sunscreen and big spray for guests to use which I thought was really nice.
beautiful spot. Lovely staff. After dining out the first night we asked them to prepare us lunch. From then on we just had all meals there, simply said "make us whatever you like!" Always great. Great beach, very quiet.
The property is awesome. Right on the beach and even better than the pictures. Beautiful well kept palapas. The tour thay recpmmend to see the shark is great
The owner was not there while we were there and the staff is not the friendliest. They help only if asked and do not smile or talk very much. Too much time on the computer and on the phones.
