This being our second trip to Holbox and to this Oasis in the sand, we can only say it was even better than last year. We stayed nine nights and will soon book for next year. If you are looking for a quiet getaway this is the spot for you. Uncluttered with all the hustle you find on the mainland. Villas Paraisio Del Mar is a real Gem . The wonderful Service and sincere warmth extends beyond The Front Desk and Dinning room and bar out to the Maids and yard men. This attitude spreads to the other guests as well. Wonderful New friends were made from all parts of the globe. Denmark,Germany,England,Sweeden,Mexico,and France were among many countries staying at the hotel.
We chose Best Day for our transfer provider. Pricier than bus but after a long day of airports and customs it is well worth the extra cost.I just wish USA and Mexico could team up and make a one stop checkpoint instead of present set up of two separate ones. Once you arrive and pick up your baggage and head directly to the exit doors and don't be held up by "The Timeshare Banditos" wearing white uniforms and looking they are trying to help you out. Best day is at the far end of the Pick Up area. We were met by a driver and agent from Best Day without delay. 2 1/2 hour drive was pleasant. Then a great Ferry Ride and Taxi (ATV) to the Lobby with agent staying with us all the way to the lobby where a welcome cocktail awaited and check-in took minutes. We requested ground floor room when we booked and it was ready for us. Spiral staircase is a bit challenging for us Seniors. Food was wonderful even though it was buffet. Chef always eager to cook up a variety of meats and fish on the grill. Service 5 star Kudos! We went to town twice but food and ambiance of resort kept us close to the resort. All Inclusive is the way to go as food and drink is expensive in town and at the resort. Bring Skeeter spray as it is the tropics. We had a couple of days of rain but only in afternoon and evenings. We didn't go on any tours but other guests loved them. Long walks on the beach and shell collecting were a favorite pastime for us as well as hanging out on the beach or pool area chatting with new friends.
Rooms are clean and mini bar is included in all inclusive rate. Maids left towel art daily with freshly picked flowers were special. Rooms also have A/C and great water pressure in showers.
Can't wait for our return in 2014!
