    Great value but could use some clean-up

    The main selling point here is value. This hotel offered a nicer and bigger room, faster wifi and warmer shower than Amaite, which is 2 blocks down on the beach and costs 5X what this hotel costs. Location is on the central plaza, which can get a little noisy. There's no beach but its only a couple of minutes away and you can grab a lounger in one of a few dayclubs. The main issue I had with the hotel was the complete lack of amenities (they don't even have an iron) and the fact that I had to kill a couple of smaller cockroaches in my room. Other than that - great.

    It’s ok considering other options. It’s on the main road, kind of noisy. Staff is super friendly, facilities could use an updating. Also, the room smells. It’s incredible how many hotels in this area have a musty smell, I did not leave my clothes on the closet for this reason.

    Comfortable stay. 1. Close to everything. 2. Clean 3. Did not work with us to adjust reservation, so we gave 4 stars for that. Overall, fine for a no frills hotel.

    I love the staff and location. I booked this hotel because of the rooftop bar ambience, but the bar was closed due to covid. The pool was also closed. I wish that the shower had some shampoo and conditioner and the beds had a blanket.

    Holbox

    Decent hotel. Located not too far from restuarants. It would help if the hotel included the golf cart taxi pick up/drop off for guest. Taxi people increased the prices to whatever they wanted so it wasn't the same price.

    Central hotel in Holbox

    The hotel is really nice with good size rooms. It’s very centrally located. There is a rooftop bar that is really cozy however be aware that there is very loud music during the evenings. I was at the floor most far away from the rooftop and the music was still very loud in my room. Also there are no hot water but I think that is very normal for the island. Other than that I would recommend staying here.

    This is our favorite place to stay in Holbox. Right downtown, 2 blocks from the beach. Get a room with a balcony facing town. I’m writing this from an all inclusive resort in puerto morales wishing I was back in Holbox at the arena. The breakfast place 2 doors down is great. Love love love Hotel arena!

    Nice little hotel, spacious suite, all you need for a hotel in Holbox, nice staff and good location in the center of the town. Only thing missing is a restaurant to have breakfast but there are plenty of restaurants nearby!
