This is a great location, although very noisy. The salsa music in town started from 10pm and didn't finish until 3.30am every night we were there (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and even with ear plugs the beat is very clear. The overall place is cute an colourful and the reception staff are very friendly. The suite (1) with a king... More

Pretty worn down place. Not clean (dirty walls, disgusting soap dispensers, spotted sheets with holes in them and some hairs). Very loud from the roof top bar that "could be experienced as disturbing" if you as we stayed in a room just beneath it. You might as well have the bar in your bedroom. Not especially comfortable beds. No bedside... More

This little hotel is right on the main square and only two blocks from the water. The rooms were nice and the lobby was amazing. The roof top bar is a little loud but that just reminded me I was to young to be going to bed so early, so I went up and had a drink.

The rooms are gorgeous and the eco friendly style throughout the hotel was beautiful. Location is central to everything and the roof top bar gives the most amazing views and cocktails. Only negative was if you wanted an early night the bar is loud (but that didnt apply to us!)

We came up here for sunset on a number of occasions and loved it. The cocktail menu was extensive and they had lost of unique cocktails. Each cocktail we had was so tasty, hard to beat. They had a pool and cool music to watch the sunset to. It can get quite windy up there though so be warned.

Really lovely spot to watch the sunset. The bar has a good vibe, great cocktails and lovely friendly service. We didn't stay here but the decor on the way up the stairs was great. It looks like a cute place to be based and handy for the town square

The Hotel has a high standard and is directly situated in Holbox-downtown. The Hotel is run by a great young woman from Mexico City and she speaks a perfect English... this differs her form the rest of ...Mexico. She was friendly and helped where she could. During the night there is a night-bar on the roof of the hotel, playing... More
