We arrived at the La Palapa Hotel in Isla Holbox on the 13th March. The warm friendly welcome in the reception made us feel at home right away. This was a perfect start of our stay in Isla Holbox after the 3,5 hour bus ride from Cancun. When we walked down to the beach,- about 50m from the reception a...

We only had a short stay at Isla Holbox, but it was great! We stayed at LaPalapa Hotel and that would be exactly where we would go back to! The room was clean and had daily maid service. The shower worked well as did the A/C. The grounds were clean and the beach was nice and only a few steps...

We stayed at two different hotels while on Holbox, both of which we enjoyed . Our last four nights were spent at La Palapa, first four at Holbox Dream (see review). I have to say there were several others (Los Mapaches, Casa Tortuga, Mawimbi, Casa Iguana...) that looked nice as well, at least from the beach. So you might be...

This hotel is conveniently located just a few steps from the beach and very close to downtown. It is a cozy place with a great staff always willing to help. Rooms are average but clean and with nice touches. One of the best things is the food, Giuseppe Genovese is both passionate about food and a great cook. You should...

We had a wonderful trip to Isla Holbox and loved Hotel La Palapa. Everyone from the reservationists via email to Wilfrido, the concierge, Fabio, the bartender, Max, one of the owners, and all of the rest of the staff were lovely, accommodating, helpful and pleasant. Our room, on the top floor, was spacious, had incredible views and was very clean....

We stayed for four nights and had a thoroughly good time. Staff, accommodation and food was excellent. Location couldn't have been better and the sea, sand and lack of TV was superbly relaxing. We didn't know much about Holbox and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere of the town - La Palapa just added icing to the cake.

Thank Habari
