Let me just say that I was shocked by how amazing the staff was here in Hotel Villas Delfines. My boyfriend and I booked a Bungalow Garden room in La Villa Delfines and we were more than satisfied with the experience! We chose to go to Isla Holbox because it is a very small community of less than 2000 people, where we could truly relax and bask in the tranquility without disruption. The quiet also made it wonderfully romantic!
The island is just beautiful and the rooms in Villa Delfines are truly authentic of Caribbean living. Everything from the walls to the floors had a very “hand-made” feeling which created a beautiful ambiance in our suite. Not to mention that every morning when we would wake up, the gorgeous garden was right outside...we could smell the flowers from our room!
Not only was the environment incredible, but the price was also right! We only spent about $96 a night when we booked last year in the beginning of June. It was great because it included free continental breakfast, free kayaks (which we used frequently) as well as free wifi (which is amazing because my boyfriend and I run an online business). Since it was so peaceful in Villas Delfines, we were able to relax and also tend to our work right on the beach...just awesome! One of my favourite parts of the trip was when I faced my fears of swimming with sharks, and dove right in with a whale shark! It took my boyfriend a while to convince me but they're completely harmless to humans and it was an experience I'll never forget. The villas offer this right on site, plus a whole bunch of other amazing activities. We really wanted to take the tour to Chichen Itza but we didn't get to before our trip was over. Maybe next time!
The only disappointment I had while there was the lack of gluten-free and dairy free options in the restaurant. I am an extremely picky eater and I was hoping for a lot more healthy and nutrient-filled options but hey you win some you lose some!
Overall the benefits well outweighed the negatives and I hope to visit again sometime in the future...perhaps with less of an appetite. Altogether: 5 star rating, 100%!
