Reviewed 10 October 2013

My friends visited this hotel recently and were blown away by the beauty of the island, the charm of the staff and the relaxed elegance of the property itself. You get what it says on the tin. They found it very relaxing but they noticed that no one was bored as there is plenty to do if that is what you want. Lots of beautiful healthy fish to eat - who could ask for more!

They raved so much about it that my partner and myself are booked for next year. We can't wait to sit on our little palapa balcony with cocktail in hand, listening to the waves washing onto the shore and watching the beautiful sunset!

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea and the balconies are private with dividing walls. Suites are on the ground f...

I've been at the Amaitè hotel last June for a wonderful holiday with my girlfriend. Holbox Island is a little paradise and the hotel is just a few meters from the ocean with a stunning view especially during the sunset.
The beach in front of the hotel is cleaned and tidy up everyday, our room was clean and beautiful, very spot on.
All the staff is very friendly and helpful, they organize for you different excursions where we saw whale sharks, dolphins, mantas, turtles,...
It's a special place for a special holiday.

It's nearly impossibile to find the the proper words to describe the magical atmosphere which embrace you once you step into this resort. The level of attention to details in the rooms is absolutely amazing. The personnel is competent and takes care of you from the moment you check in until you leave. The restaurant offers a variety of food you can never get tired of. I've bene there with my family for just two weeks and we are already missing the place. The price / quality ratio is perfect. I strongly reccomend Amaite to anybody!

After bagpacking for 2 weeks in Mexico we decided to head to Isla Holbox for a little rest. We instantly loved this hotel and the Island. The rooms are very nice with a great view on the sea. The beach is beautiful with very confortable chairs and hamacs. The restaurant in also good with the same price range as the others in town.

Room Tip: All rooms have view on the sea. On the 2nd floor I think it is mostly rooms with matrimonial bed and...

This place has by far the best location in town. I had a bad experience due to the fact that the handy man woke us up with hammer sounds at 7:00 AM.
The staff is very friendly and the food is great.
I will think twice before coming back to this Hotel.
we saw baby raccoons in our rooftop which was nice.

Buenas tardes David,
Reciba un cordial saludo de Eduardo Pacheco, gerente del Hotel Amaité. Referente a su comentario sobre que el hotel no sea bueno, con respecto a la mala experiencia del mantenimiento, nosotros no empezamos a trabajar en casos como el que sucedió si no hasta después de las 10:30am que el desayuno ya ha terminado así nos aseguramos de que los huéspedes estén despiertos, cuando se empezó a trabajar no eran las 7am eran casi las 11am, pero no creo que ese detalle sea tan malo como para poner que las habitaciones estén sucias, que el servicio no es bueno, cuando nosotros hasta les dimos la oportunidad de ocupar la habitación para bañarse cuando regresaron del tour aun cuando las habitaciones se entregan a las 12:30pm, y regresaron mas tarde; es solo una opinión pero nos afecta mucho, como podrá usted ver nuestros huéspedes han dejado comentarios buenos; lo invito a regresar al hotel y créame que recibirá el mejor trato y lo mejor de nosotros.
saludos cordiales y que tenga un buen día.
Eduardo Pacheco.

Great service, nice clean and beautiful rooms. I stayed there for a whole week and the personnel were all very friendly and nice. Nice warm showers with strong pressure. Well located and excellent beach. I definitively recommend it!
