      I liked that the property was clean, it had friendly staff, and I was able to enjoy my stay. The only thing that I had an issue with was the a/c not working properly.

      Preferred over beach rates. Safe and quiet

      The courtyard rainforest feel is charming complete with birdsong and pool to cool off in midday. Great A/C, fabulous coffee. The local ballpark noise lured us there several times. Games and salsa music live. Easy walk or bike ride to everywhere.

      Really great! A few minutes walking from the beach with a clean "new" feel.

      It wad quiet, nice and shady, and we loved the pool. The only thing i would add would be a fridge, either in the room or in the common area

      Cozy place , good stay

      The hotel is in a nice location and the rooms a clean. There’s a bit of smell of humidity but it’s ok. They also forgot to give an extra towel.

      Quiet in Holbox

      A quiet place to stay in a busy area close to ferry and beach, about half way. Easy walk. No coffee pot in room, bit hot coffee and roll in the morning. Very comfortable bed. Great for families and a pool. Not great WiFi, but useable.

      Clean, convenient location between the ferry and the beach. Nice gardens, covered patio with table at each room’s entrance. Only downside was lack of hot water we experienced. Given warm temps it wasn’t too big of an issue. Pool looked nice, we didn’t use.

    • 4.0.Fair

      The room was attractive and the grounds are lush and beautiful. The wifi rarely worked, and there was no hot water in the shower, and no water pressure in the shower. The beds are extremely hard and uncomfortable, like sleeping on a box spring. Staff gave us one towel each at a time. No hand towels, no washcloths. There was sand on the floor most of the time, the maid only swept once and mopped once during our week stay. The pool was unheated and too chilly to use.

      The hotel is close to the town central and within walking distance to the ferry. Theres a mini market across the street. Staff was friendly and room was clean. Con was the water pressure which was ver low. Ask for a room near the pool as its a bit more quiet.
