“Just like staying with family :)”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

From the moment you arrive to Xaloc, you are greeted with smiles, it's a beautiful small hotel with either bungalows and rooms, when we arrived all the staff was nice and helpful, we were welcomed with a refreshing beverage which really helped with our thirst and tiredness from the long trip.
We stayed in a rustic but very clean, big and fresh bungalow, it was very comfortable with high ceiling, a fan and A/C which we didn't really use because the weather in December is nice enough to not need it.
The staff always had a smile and a hello for everyone, they were nice and helpful even the manager lent us a cooler for our drinks one day we wanted to go to another part of the island :)
The hotel is located just a couple blocks from downtown Holbox and you can walk from and to the hotel at any time, the place is peaceful and safe; also it has a nice beach club where you can enjoy the view, the ocean along with a drink which will be brought to you by the staff.
Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the hotel beach or sunrises from the hotel roof.
Don't forget to bring mosquito repellent, it's a basic :)

My husband and I just returned from a stay at Xaloc Resort (chawloke). Every effort was made from this wonderful staff to make our stay memorable. Initially we were in a garden bungalow,but we found the room too dark, so we switched to the upper rooms of the European building. The room was bright, roomy and private; with a view of the ocean. The restaurant was excellent with fair prices and an attentive wait person at each meal. The reading room was a beautiful room with large chairs, a cool breeze overlooking the ocean. It was a dreamy place to unwind, read and have wi-fi connection. I already miss the wonderful breakfast and coffee. We want to especially thank Aurelio for his service and friendship. The entire staff was exceptional. We hope to return - and already have through our memories.

Room Tip: Really enjoyed the upper rooms in t he European building. The pool was private and fantastic.

We have recently returned from a family holiday (kids & parents & grandparents!) and loved our time here.

The resort doesn't 'feel' like a resort, it is very relaxed, gorgeous bungalows and friendly staff. The location was perfect, on the beach, a short walk to the main square but far enough away for quietness. The kids loved the pool and is a great idea to have two separate pools where kids are and not - works for those with kids and those without!

My only feedback was that the restaurant in the evenings lacks any atmosphere although the food is good, and it would be nice to have more of the buffet included in the breakfast.

But all in all had a fabulous time!

My husband and I stayed at Xaloc for several nights in March. This property is both elegant and rustic. The bungalows are very nice and comfortable. They have a terrace with both a hammock and a comfortable "beach bed" built for two. Very nice! Their beach area is pretty and there are lots of chairs with both sunny and shady options. Their restaurant has a good selection of vegetarians options!

Room Tip: The difference in price is based on the location -- oceanview, garden, etc. All of the bungalows ar...

We stayed in the hotel building, the rooms was nicely decorated and large, it had a balcony overlooking the resort andf the sea. The room hade both aircon and a fan, wich was good, as the aircon shut down every time you opened the door to the balcony!
We have stayed at other hotels that also let the aircon shut down when you open the door, but then it has started again when you close the door, here it just shut down, and you hade to start it again when you got inside.
The beach area was nice, but could do with some more beach chairs, we saw that the same people occupied the same chairs day after day, so we usually had to do without.
The breakfast is very American with peanutbutter and jam to go with your toast and very sweet cereals, some cheese or ham would have been nice for us Europeans, who are usually not that in to the sweet stuff.
You can order eggs for breakfast, any way you like them, and that was great!
The staff was very nice and always saying, hola! and smiling.
Over all We enjoyed our stay very much, there are just some minor details that We think could be improved.

I stayed at Xaloc (pronounced "Ch-aw-low-k") with my brother in late January and can't say enough good things about the place. First off the location -- Xaloc is just far enough away from the city center that it feels relaxed and not too crowded. There are a couple of locations toward the city center that blast music but Xaloc was far enough away from those that it wasn't a problem. When you arrive via boat to Holbox it's about a 10-15 minute walk to Holbox straight through the city center but there will also be lots of golf cart "taxi's" waiting to transport you as well. One note about the boating -- while there is an official ferry schedule, there are also many locals with boats offering to transport you at 80 pesos a ride (the same cost of taking the ferry) providing you are ok with the trip lasting about 15 minutes longer (you usually also have to find a total of 8 tourists willing to jump into the boat before they'll take off too).

But back to Xaloc. The head of Xaloc is a man name Yuan -- great guy. Super friendly, speaks good English, and is always willing to go the extra mile to help you out. He probably single-handily made the stay worth while...there are some folks that make stays that much better and he is definitely one of them. Xaloc gets you good bang for your buck -- the breakfast is decent and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The Cabana's are definitely the way to go for couples (even though they are a little more expensive) -- very romantic and well spread throughout the grounds.
