Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Holbox island is truly a beautiful place and holbox apartments location is perfect just on the beach and only a few minutes walk into town. We had a truly wonderful stay and our hosts were lovely and couldn't do more for us which made it a very memorable stay, so thanks to John & Mandy. Loved the whole island, great food, great people very relaxed easy way of life, so if you wish to relax this is the place for you. Had a fantastic day out swimming with the whale sharks with whale shark daddy, which we shall never forget.

Have just returned from lovely two week stay in apt. We had lower beach front apt with full kitchen which was just right for us, allowing us to enjoy our stay at relaxed pace. Managers, Adlai and mattias very helpful and unobtrusive, exactly right balance. It's at quiet end of town but you are never more than five minutes from the action so it was nice to have that stroll down beach or 'road' to central plaza. I was with my five year old daughter who loved our 'little house' and did not want to leave but I suspect most children would find it too quiet and actually the other guests may prefer the tranquility of a child free zone although it was, as I have said, absolutely perfect fit for us and finding a self catering apt on this island with such a perfect view and great facilities is a hard task. Will return without doubt.

My husband and I enjoyed our suite on the second floor. It was large with a king-sized bed and a large balcony with a direct ocean view. Although we were disappointed that the wireless internet was unavailable the first few days, we realized that it was through no fault of the managers. Once it was restored, we had good internet service. The apartment house is a short walk from downtown, in a very quiet area of the beach. The balcony is the perfect place to read and relax of to sunbathe, but it also has shade when you want it, making it my favorite part of the unit.

My only recommendation is that a few hooks of some type be installed in the bathroom, since there is almost no place to hang a wet towel or a bathrobe.

We stay in the second floor (left) apartment for five nights. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating. King size bed was very comfortable and the patio was a wonderful place to just hang out. Loved walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean or just watching the pelicans dive for fish. Truly a restful vacation. At our request, our driver to Holbox made a stop at an ATM so we made sure we had enough money prior to getting to the ferry.

The Holbox upstairs apartment was even more lovely than the pictures showed. The view and sunset were spectacular. Having a fridge is such an extra treat. The shaded palapas out front with comfortable chaise lounges were great for reading and protection from the sun. The ocean out front was warm and clean. Either direction offers a great walk, the one to the west brought us to a remote area full of gorgeous birds. In fact this island has so many interesting shore birds. The apartment is clean, spacious (his/hers closets), with a very comfortable bed. An extra treat were the turqoise beach towels. The caretakers are kind and polite. Do bring insect repellent. We look forward to our next visit!

We spent the last week of a 5 month trip through South and Central America at Holbox Apartments.
Our (upper floor) apartment was wonderful - just as indicated by the pictures and video that we had seen. The apartment was spacious and well fitted out - The fridge made keeping those "delivered to the door" beers nice and cold.
Adla and Mattias were wonderful hosts - offering great advice on what to do and where to go, as well as more practical help like getting beers in the fridge and hunting down a working ATM (take enough cash with you for your stay).
Of all the places we visited - Holbox was the most special - mainly for the opportunity to spend time with the magnificent Whale Sharks, (we went to see then twice!!), but also for the wonderful friendly, relaxed nature of the Island - and the top notch service and accommodation offered by Holbox Apartments.

We are just back from a week on Holbox Island staying at Holbox Apts. The upper apt was perfect for usl. Private, sizable and with a wonderful view. We spent the week swimming with the whale sharks and manta rays and just relaxing on the veranda. It was very hot. so we did not sit on the beach, but went back and forth taking swims and cooling off. Mattius and Adla were helpful-getting us beer and providing us with a big bag of ice which they kept in their freezer.
The sunsets are outstanding. The breakfast that is included at a local restaurant was excellent.
That restaurant also makes delicious fruit smoothies.
This is the right place for someone who wants a low-key, quiet relaxing vacation.
We did experience some mosquitoes in the am. But spray did the trick. There were several overhead fans and a floor fan that kept us cool at night without the netting.
