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... More

Extremely pleased with our stay at Palapas del Sol. We had a lower level King Suite (7P) which is a newer unit. 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... More

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... More

We just got back from hosting a yoga retreat at Palapas Del Sol. This was our first time coming to Hotbox island, and for me actually first time in Mexico. We fell in love with this hotel.

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. The food is very tasty and fresh, the room are very nice and the staff is lovely. Unfortunately the place at the moment is very noisy... More

I went for a small vacation to Cancún and them decided to go to Holbox. To be honest, it was a unique experience. The hotel is very warm and the personal that work over there are very educated.

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

Please don't tell anyone how wonderful Holbox and Palapas del Sol are. I worry it will be spoiled. As is, with dirt streets and no cars...just the occasional delivery truck, it is close to perfect.
