Beautiful hotel, may be better suited for couples
Upon arriving to La Papala my two friends and I were promptly greeted by the receptionist. The staff is friendly and courteous and always willing and eager to offer recommendations on dining and activities. We had booked the ‘Superior Room’ with two double beds. The room was comfortable and spacious with hooks on the wall to hang clothes/towels to dry. The room had two outlets. We had a gorgeous view of the beachfront and a hammock on our balcony. They have convenient water refill station on the third story. Minor inconveniences include no telephone to call the front desk, no tv (not that we ever use it when traveling). The weather was warm enough that we did not mind the lack of hot water in the shower. Just a FYI as a hotel rule/policy personal speakers are not allowed (loud noise). La Palapa is convientently located a couple blocks away from the plaza/ town center ( 5 minute walk max). There is a convenience store next door to stock up on snacks/beer. Guests that leave their sunscreen/ big repellent they make available to guests by the front desk should you forget yours. We really liked that despite checkout being at noon we still had access too all the facilities (outdoor shower, beach towels, they hold your luggage) in case you wanted to catch the last ferry out of the island. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. And as three female travelers we felt very safe. However I recommend it more for couples than friends because of the noise restrictions.

This hotel was amazing!!! We came here on our adventure honeymoon for rest and relaxation and we definitely got it. From the curious shell shower to the few steps to the beach, The Palapa did not disappoint. Pros- - there's enough lounge chairs for everyone - great restaurant food - RIGHT on the beach - good hot water - GREAT shade. Lots of palm trees! - tolietries smelling of honey were a plus - hammocks were clean and comfy - clear Beach water - steps from main downtown/ restaurant area Cons - some seaweed but thats not the hotels fault - shell shower while very cute isn't water efficient. Would be nice to have something more eco friendly - have to wake up early if you want to get a lounge chair with shade. Also most people leave their towels on their lounge chair for long periods of time so no one can take their spot which kind of sucks. As you can see, the pros outweigh the cons. For the price we paid, I definitely think it was worth it. If we ever come back to Isla Holbox, we will definitely be staying here again!!! Shout out to Gabriel at the front desk who's just super professional and helpful!!!! Two thumbs up and would obviously recommend to others!!!
