Reasonable priced, onvenient and clean hotel
We have stayed at Casa Barbara twice now. It is a cute place with tree logs worked into the walls and ceilings which makes it fun. Also, it is within walking distance from the ferry. Just two blocks up the street. It is a simple hotel and was fine for our one night in Holbox. The beds and pillows were slightly uncomfortable. We were able to leave our bags in the check in area until ready to take the ferry, which was helpful. In Holbox the ATM is very unreliable, so bring plenty of pesos. If you need the cash machine go early before a long line forms. It is upstairs at the corner bank. There were several places that will not take US dollars, but many places that would take credit cards. It has rained heavily each time we have been there and the water fills the streets, sometimes up to six inches so it can be really muddy. People just seem to take off their shoes and wade through the water! We probably will not go back to Holbox as it is very small, and my husband accomplished what he wanted - to go fishing and catch Tarpin.

Holbox Retreat
It was a very good stay. Beautiful grounds and pool. Quiet and away from the noise of town but nearby. Two block walk to town. Only thing to watch for was they want you to hang a card on your room door if you want service. Just be aware; not a problem.

Budget hotel...splurge if you can!
Grounds are lovely but the room smelled strongly of cleanser. When that smell wore off, it was apparent the rooms are musty and we stayed in 2 different rooms! Our friends also stayed in 2 different rooms-same story. A/C was inefficient, but weather was mild so it was ok. Location is close to town, but next time I'd definitely spend more money!
