A few minutes walk away from the noisy hotels on the beach, this place is very special. We had 2 rooms, each with 2 doubles. The bathrooms were fine, if a bit basic - but just what we were expecting for the price and location. The food at the restaurant ( which only does breakfast and lunch) was really really good- loads of tasty Mexican treats. Staff were attentive and friendly. I would recommend.
This is our 2nd stay in holbox. The 1st time we have stayed in a hotel near the punta mosquito side. This hotel is on the punta coco side. The price is overly expensive for what the hotel offers but we have noticed that rates of almost everything doubled within a year ( golf carts, taxi, tours, bikes etc..). This is a real turn off when the idea of the island is to keep its authenticity while the streets are dirty (supposed to be white sand) near the entrance of the hotel or any other streets. And very basic services/entertainment are not available.
This hotel is still one of the best in terms of value in the island. The service is good and the hotel is clean and peaceful.
The room is okay but misses a couple things such as a heater, a wardrobe or even a phone in case of an emergency.
The rooms technically seems to have an angle view to the sea but then the hotel added some kind of club with tents (see pic) which covers the beautiful view. And if you want to sit in the tents you ll have to pay 250pesos/pp which is ridiculous.
Anyway, this will probably be our last time in the island since for the same spendings we could probably afford way better services and sightseeing.
