“We had a very pleasant stay”
Reviewed 26 March 2010

The hotel is managed and owned by a Mexican family. When we got from the ferry, we took a taxi to the golden paradise village, where Femmi, one of the owners, was allready waiting for us.
We had a warm welcome,and a few minutes later they brought us with a golf car (local vehicules) to the golden paradise beach hotel.
For me and my wife it was a dream come true. The hotel is located about 2 km from the center. You come out of your room, go down the stairs, and you are on the beach.
The rooms on the beach are very basic (still). They have 2 beds, a little sink, refrigerator, and a bathroom. There is also a table and 2 chairs on the balcony.
When the water is calm, you can easily go 50 m in the water and still be hip deep.
The only thing you have to remember is, when you want to go and eat, you will probably have to walk to the center.From the center you can take a taxi back to the hotel (40 pesos)
You have to make a reservation and tranfer money to confirm.
This is completely normal, and you don't have to worry yourself about this.
If the beach hotel is a little far from the center, you can always go to the village hotel (big room,2beds,bathroom,sink and a television,A/C optional),or the camping area,where they have private rooms and dormetory.
After our stay,we can include this people as our friends.

I stayed at Golden Paradise Beach Hotel recently during my first trip to Holbox (don't even get me started on how beautiful Holbox is!). I first stayed at Golden Paradise Camping, which has some lovely Caribbean private rooms, but unfortunately was a little loud with the roosters and such--i'm a very light sleeper. When i told Femmy (the owner of GP) that i couldn't sleep there, she immediately returned the money i'd paid her for the week, and offered me a deep discount on the Beach Hotel. And man, what a treat!!

The Beach Hotel is actually a very beautiful house about a kilometer down the beach, with 8 beautifully appointed rooms with fridges, a/c and fans. The house literally touches the sea--it's probably the closest hotel to the sea in Holbox, actually. How could you get any closer? At night the gentle waves sound like they're in one's bedroom...It's incredibly soothing. I couldn't hear anything else but the water and the birds--there really is nothing else very close to it, which is lovely, especially since i was there during Carnavale! Sit on the balcony--if you're lucky enough to get a top room overlooking the sea--and watch the sunset, the pelicans dive for fish, the moon and stars. Truly breathtaking. Wake up in the morning and walk straight into the sea, then relax on a hammock or chaise.

The owners, who are a wonderful Mexican family (most hotels in Holbox seem to be owned by foreigners), do not live at the beach hotel, but there is a young, lovely family who live in a house steps from the beach hotel, and they take care of the place. I knocked on their door whenever i needed something...I don't speak much Spanish (and they speak no English), but i usually got the point across! If you need more, visit Femmy and Gabriel at their hotel in town, where they live. For those of you who need a 24/7, English-speaking manager on site, this place may not be for you, but it's isolation was one of its charms, for me!

I was traveling alone, but felt incredibly safe...Having a bike made things easier, especially traveling back and forth to town, at night. I usually biked on the road instead of the beach, but it's also easy to walk to town via the beach, and takes about 10-15 minutes. Beautiful walk, needless to say.

I can't say enough about Femmy and Gabriel--they are such wonderful, accommodating people, and truly want their guests to be happy. All 3 of their hotels are super clean, designed with love, and high quality, and anytime i needed anything they were prompt and generous. The Beach Hotel helped make my stay on Holbox a wonderful dream--i highly recommend it!
