My friend and I stayed at La Palapa for a week, and we were so happy that we made the choice to stay there as opposed to every other property we ended up peeking at on the beautiful island of Holbox. Upon our arrival, we were extended a warm welcome by Vicente, who is the very embodiment of hospitality and...

unplug & relax at La Palapa. Great location, beautiful beach, great food and drink. Beppe and Fabio prepare top notch food and drinks and the hotel staff cannot be more helpful. Rooms 1 & 2 get a bit of noise from the restaurant and the folks who like to sit in the hammocks outside those rooms and talk into the...

Stayed in La Palapa for 4 nights at the start of our holiday. Couldn't have asked for a better view first thing in the morning. Overlooked the sea. Stunning. Good choice of breakfast dishes in the morning which were nicely presented. The staff are an asset. Crystel on Reception couldn't have been more helpful. The staff come over as actually...

Very nice spot with the beach just outside your door. Good restaurant on premises. Convenient. Three nights in a row there was some kind of party nearby, so light sleepers may be bothered. Except for the noise (I slept through it, but my wife did not) it is a great spot for convenience, comfort and price. Bring money from the...

We stayed at La Palapa for almost two weeks over Christmas and New Year's Eve. We stayed in the bungalow which was very nice and cosy. The cleaning service was excellent! The beach is right in front of the hotel and it's one of the best on Holbox. I can't say enough good things about the staff, they are so...

We arrived to La Palapa and fall in love with the place at first glance, clean and beautiful rooms, lovely staff, stunning view of the beach from the room and the best margaritas in all Holbox. It's a really good option for a really good price, i'll love to go back and stay there really soon. Totally recommended.

We ended up giving La Palapa a try because we could only stay 2 days at Mawimbi (a favorite of ours) due to a wedding coming in. We were very pleased to find our room (Cielito Lindo) at La Palapa was clean and very spacious - larger than the two rooms we had stayed in previously at Mawimbi. The shower...

We stayed at Hotel La Palapa in August for one week. It was a great place and I highly recommend it. We were there with our 3 daughters, ages 6,3, and 1. The hotel and restaurant staff were friendly to our kids. Every morning our kids wanted to go visit the lobby to chat with the receptionists. The beach in...

We stayed at the La Palapa and we really can recommend the place, if you stay on Holbox. The beach in front of the Hotel, is the best on the island and the hotel is really neat and clean.
