“Friendly hotel ON the beach”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

The location is actually ON the beach, so for me it was perfect. Sunsets and looong walks along the beach in either direction was magic. Center just a few blocks away with restaurants and food stores. Last time I said I had to come back some day - and I did.

Stayed June 2013, travelled solo

I have to say the hotel is in a great location. Close to everything but no noise at night. The AC works once it gets warmed up. Beds are about as hard as they can get, but are clean and housekeeping does a great job. On a side note, just be aware that toilet paper goes in the trash can, not in the toilets. Have had it before but heard no mention of it before arriving.

There were me and my girlfriend and her 15 year old daughter so we picked the Ideal studio since the website said it sleeps 4ppl. Once arriving you can see it definitely can NOT sleep 4 people. I went and spoke to Ivan who was extremely helpful throughout the entire trip and he agreed that the website had led me astray. After looking at the size of the other rooms we did end up staying in the Ideal room since you could squeeze a third in better than the other rooms. We enjoyed this room, but the kitchenette set up was pretty useless for us minus the fridge. I did feel very safe and can not say enough about Ivan and Roberto. They are a great asset to the hotel and I hope management understands that.

Since the first night I stayed they have changed the Ideal room to 2ppl max on the website which is more appropriate. I would recommend this property but just be prepared for a firm bed and your room to take a little time to cool down. Other than that the pool is a nice addition and the water is calm and a great temperature.

The price - The best deal in my opinion, I don't think there was anything else we needed from the hotel.
The location - We could see the ocean lying bed out one window and the pool out the other, need I say more? But there is more... It's minutes to the square with all the restaurants and bars but far enough away from the the main dock.
The staff - Ivan, always friendly and helpful, right down to getting us ice for our cooler!
The cleanliness of the rooms - the sweet cleaning lady/girl always did a great job. Not one single cockroach all week (they ever cover the shower drains)We felt so safe there we didn't even bother locking ANYTHING in our safe and left everything (money, phones, passports, iPad) lying around without incident (not that I recommend this and you're probably thinking we're stupid but I knew it wouldn't be an issue)
The beach and grounds - Always immaculate! The gardeners/groundskeepers out there first thing in the morning raking the beach, wiping the chairs and so on, without disturbing any sleeping in!
However, this island isn't for everybody. It's very rustic and au naturel which is why I fell in love with it, that and all the fresh fish! There's not much to do but relax (at least when we were there because we were too early for whale sharks, too hot for biking and kite boarding schools were closed :-(
All in all one of my best vacations in a while!

Room Tip: We had the the Vision room on the ground floor. We chose it for the bar fridge, the hammock (which w...

Holbox Dreams is great! The rooms are clean, attractively decorated (although minimal with furnishings) and comfortable. There is not much room to store belongings but you don't spend much time in there. The pool is in the courtyard and the beach is steps away from that. The hotel is convenient to town. While we were there, Ivan and Favian were there. They helped us with everything we needed--truly wonderful. Holbox is amazing and

We spent a weekend on Isla Holbox and stayed at this lovley quint little hotel. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The plunge pool was a nice refreshing place, and you can walk down the beach both ways for miles.

We absolutely loved the island and this hotel! It was a great size, which gave it a wonderful friendly feel that was complimented by the brilliant staff who work there. Yvan and Fabien were brilliant hosts - nothing was too much trouble! The location was also great - right on the beach, and a short walk to the main square on the island. Couldn't recommend highly enough, and we hope to return in the future!

My family has been going to Holbox for 8 years during our children's spring break. This is the second time we have stayed at Holbox Dream Hotel.

The hotel was recently put under a new management company (in 2013) and it is a welcome change. The new staff is warm, friendly, extremely helpful and very connected with the island community. Bottom line, we give the staff an A+.

The rooms are well kept, clean and adequate for the style and culture of this island.
Note that Holbox is a very laid back island. If you are looking for a fancy resort or a spring break party town, this is not the place.

We also believe that this is an ideal location. On the beach and easy to reach town.

We will be back!

Room Tip: The deluxe ocean view rooms are excellent.
