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...

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...

First the only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is construction (more about this at the bottom). What makes Casa Palapas del Sol stand out from other places I have stayed are the people. Martin(manager) and Adriana(owner) were amazing helpful. Anything that was a concern they took care of it. They also were very gracious and always pointed out...

Holbox is an amazing place and Palapas Del Sol is located on the outskirts of the village on a beautiful part of the beach near the sandbank but still walking distance to the village.

Whatever is good about this hotel was negated by the very loud chainsaws and other construction noises. Either the hotel should warn people when they make their reservations or discount their room rate
