The hotel itself is nice, but they are missing on a few things, Like helping Guests, Front desk is kind of lost... Food good but then always cold. Service at the bar is good if you tip. In restaurant well very slow. A/A are kind of old and not working like they should. The y do have alot of to do as far as training the staff, beach was just horrible and stinky (not the hotel fault). Internet service is just OK.

I spent an afternoon in this beautiful Hotel in Holbox where peace, tranquility and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere envelops you completely waiting for a delicious Mexican-style dinner on the veranda listening the waves of the sea. The menu was extensive even though I chose the buffet and variety of the food was really great, the quality of the food excellent and the service also and restaurant staff very friendly and helpful for any need. Great experience and really recommend it to every type of traveler, a cordial greeting to all the staff of this wonderful hotel.

Seeing was believing, the views of the ocean were out of a brochure. Flew in late at night and the sight to greet us first thing was something else. The continued excellent service from the minute we arrived didn't falter. Took some opportunities to get out on a small boat and we did the shark tour. The wildlife is awesome, wild flamingos and strange fish when we were in the sea. The hotel is laid back and the days drifted into nights, it was our most relaxing vacation in a long time. Congratulations to keeping the whole feel as real as they do. I can recommend Paraiso del Mar with a full ten.

Great location on a relatively undiscovered island compared to the usual Caribbean stop offs. Very comfortable hotel with nice amenities and very good staff and food. Our room was a real pleasure to spend time in and most mornings we just took it easy on rising, so we could really soak up the view and nice surroundings. It is a quiet place to stay and if you are into noise and clubbing till late you probably won´t like it here, but if like us you want to chillax to the max then this hotel is the right spot to do it.

After dedicating many hours to reading reviews I liked what I saw for Paraiso del mar. We stayed 29th April - 9th May and took every opportunity to embrace the slower pace of Island life. The beach is right across the way and the furniture was comfortable. Spent many hours walking along the shore and caught sight of some ocean creature, I'd like to think it was a shark. The complex was busy without being crowded and sometimes we were the only two on the beach. Felt like we got to know each other all over again. This was a very enjoyable vacation and we look forward to a return trip.

Overall a nice place. The location is nice. Just outside the 'main town' and close enough to walk everywhere. Very few places actually 'beach front'. They have lots chairs on sand across the road from the beach. It is literally a 30 second walk to get in the water.

The staff was not overly friendly though. On vacation it is nice to enjoy the bar time! But had to wait for a drinks and were not friendly. We went to bars at other hotels had a nicer time. Which we didn't really mind since we like to get out and see things.

We are regular visitors of Mexico and very loyal to Holbox and this was our third visit. It has always been good to spend our vacation there but this was our first stay at the Villa Paraiso hotel. We would say that it is one of the top hotels in the area and the rooms are of a good size and you can upgrade to all inclusive which is well worth the money. Swimming pool is nice and it was busy on a couple of days but suddenly it became quiet after the weekend and we pretty much had the pool to ourselves early morning. Staff make an effort to keep everyone happy and the hotel and pool area are spotless. This is now going to be our first choice of accommodation in Holbox without a shadow of a doubt.
