This is our first time back to hotbox in 5 years. The island has changed dramatically. There are much more restaurants, hotels, and organized tourist operations. It is still very quaint and relaxing but it is easier to navigate, especially with a 5 year old.
Palapas del sol is lovely. The staff, Topo and Estella a amazing and treat you as family. Adriana will go out of her way to make you feel welcome. The open kitchen and large covered table for communal meals is amazing. Yesterday we went fishing and caught dinner for all. Topo Prepared the fish and Estella cook us a variety of dishes.
I would recommend eating meals that Estella prepares. She posts a menu for the day and for a little extra money you can have a fantastic meal. You can purchase beer and add it to the refrigerator. It is an amazing system.
The rooms are perfect. We stayed in a king sized bed with large patio facing the sea. There are ceiling fans and air conditioning which is perfect to put a 5 year old to bed in. There are Mosquitos at sun rise and sun set so be prepared with spray or lotions. Adriana supplied us with both. There seems to be a supply at the kitchen and eating area.
Adriana and Topo arranged our boat trip yesterday. We went fishing, snorkeling, and site seeing. A great day. I will place a review in trip advisor. Louis at toursticamoguel was awesome.
Topi and Estella have a little boy as well that was perfect for our 5 year old to play with. We have had such a great time that we are staying another night even though we have a hotel in cancun already paid for.
