I stayed for 17 days in one of the upstairs rooms with an amazing view! Location is great; place is quiet and well kept although a bit dilapidated. Staff is great and very helpful! Definitely a place to return too!

Glad to hear all your beautiful comments. Thank you for choosing Resort Isla Holbox in your stay in the Islad. We hope you come back soon to your favourite Cabaña!

If you loved the Buffet before, ( complimentary breakfast ) you will love it now even more, it has increased since 2014 with lots of fresh fruits to cheeses and cold cuts. Our young staff members are still the friendliest in town for sure!
We always appreciate the visit of laid back people like you. Come to visit soon!!!


Regards from Isla Holbox!

We reserved an upstairs room and at check in decided to switch to a cabana, which was a very good decision. Nothing wrong with the rooms, but the cabanas are a lot more fun. They sit by the pool, and you have a good view of the ocean from them.This hotel is tranquil, well kept grounds and very clean cabana (palapa) with hot shower. Complimentary breakfast with lots of fresh fruits. A short 8 minute walk to town, very easy access to everything. The mattresses are a little hard, but they changed the sheets daily and fresh towels on demand. They could improve the mosquito nets, that have holes on them. Trust me, you will need nets at the island, especially near the water. Staff members are young, but professional and friendly. Some of them speak English, but, again, another opportunity for you to learn Spanish. For the high maintenance people, you should stay at home. For the ones who like a peaceful, laid back environment, this is the place for you. We will go back for sure.

There are always pros and cons with any service establishment. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very attentive. However, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on the Pension Completa. You will have a greater food selection for about the same price just ordering from the menu. Also there are plenty of good restaurants in town and the taxi service is always available and very reasonable (20 - 30 pesos). There are also some mini supermarkets in town where you can pretty much buy whatever you need.

That being said, we really liked the small fishing pueblo type atmosphere. And we were very fortunate to photograph huge flocks of flamingos and various other wildlife.

Keeping all that in mind, I would recommend this resort.

we stayed there 2 weeks and it was really really nice. really pleasant staff and we enjoyed our bungalow. Eventhough the mosquitonet wasnt functioning 100%.. the food isnt the best on the island, but who wants to stay at the hotel all the time anyway...
All in all Id give it 8/10

We stayed for 3 nights (wife and baby boy) and were disappointed by the lack of ramps for the stroller. They gave us the most remote room (maybe because of our baby) so we have to climb up and down stairs all the way to the beach (hell!!!). Nice place, not what you would expect for the price. Very few beach beds and they were all taken since 6 a.m. Beware of the mosquitos (chaquiste) at sunset.

We had our doubts after reading previous reviews but rated it highly with a lovely clean room well fitted out clean and comfortable(beach bungalow no 1) Very generous breakfast with only a small supplement for full cooked.the restaurant produces very good food but the dining room needs to match it with some more ambiance. We would have rated it higher if the sun beds had been of better quality and more of them and it would help to have a manager in charge daily ,something the management seem to miss out on,but we had a great holiday and preferred it to Casa Sandra where we stayed last year. V friendly staff and good location, we found the beds fine!!

We absolutely loved this resort, but cannot return until they get new mattresses! We were thrilled with this hotel and the staff, but the beds were terrible, which really made you notice the torn threadbare mosquito nets staring at the ceiling while you can't sleep. These are really simple fixes, and I hope they make them, I'd love to return if they do.
