This Hotel is simple in terms of the facilities but the service delivered by the two ladies running the place was impeccable: always friendly they would organise massages, tours, make excellent breakfasts. Thanks very much for having us Sara and Anto!

I just showed up at the hotel after looking in town a bit and got a room right away. The hotel was very clean and very comfortable. I fell in love with the front lobby, it was so comfy and relaxing ah! Only spent one night unfortunately and the next morning has a sweet breakfast which was included. Lots of... More

I came to work for a couple of weeks. This is not your luxury hotel, but it is an affordable place, close to the beach and with a very friendly-ready to serve staff. There are some issues that need to be fixed, but management strives to do their best to accomodate all your needs. If you are looking for a... More

Beware, this is the hotel many taxi drivers take you to when you ask for a recommendation at the dock. The hotel is mediocre in terms of cleanliness and leaves much to be desired in terms of charm. Wireless was weak. For an equal or better experience at a similar or lower price, take a look around near the square,... More

Place we intended to go to was booked full. Girl at reception showed me the room and it seemed ok. Asked the girl if there was hot water. Don't really need it on an island like Holbox, but it does matter for pricing. She sad yes. As there was some hesitation in her voice, i asked if she was sure.... More

The staff at this hotel are so incredibly warm and accomodating, it will more than make up for the fact that you are not right *on* the beach. I stayed here last summer, and it was just a wonderful place to call home base. I stayed for eight days, and would definitely stay there again. Elements is about a 5-min.... More

There are two kinds of hotels on Isla Holbox. On the one hand there are expensive resort-type places where you can relax and pamper yourself in rustic luxury. On the other hand, there are simple, less expensive more typical Mexican hotels such as the Posada de los Arcos and the Posada Laury. These places are pleasant and laid back if... More

The rooms are on the second and third floors. There is a nice rooftop area with a view of the surrounding area and ocean. The problem is that the hotel allowed the use of the rooftop the entire evening for a party and hangout for people that were not even staying at the hotel. Loud music and all night sounds.... More

As a solo traveler, I thought Holbox would be an interesting locale to explore since I would be celebrating my 49th birthday on August 1st. The hotel is located one block from the beach and has an amazing view of the ocean from the roof deck. All was perfect until I ate at a small restaurant downtown and became violently... More
