    Great time at Villas HM Palapas

    Great hotel on the beach. The food was very good with an excellent variety. The service in the restaurants was a 10. The room was clean and updated. The beaches are amazing with sand like powder. I would stay again for sure.

    Great value for money with amazing beach, great vibes. The rooms are clean and basic but you don't need more! The sushi restaurant in the hotel is great!

    Love this hotel! The value for what you pay is great and the rooms look even nicer in person. Especially the free breakfast and all of the fresh juices. We have eaten lunch at some of the other hotels on the beach during our stay and this one feels just as nice for half the price. I would definitely stay here again.

    Holbox is a magical place, the hotel is pretty much centrally located 15 min walk from the dock. Surrounded by delicious restaurant both local and fancy, modern cafes, gorgeous beaches. Wonderful beach waiter service and the food is outstanding here and the entire island, (could use a few extra beach chairs and large palapas, they fill up early in the day leaving some guests without chairs.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We checked in on Monday October 05 in the evening. The next day was a perfect sunny morning. When we went to have breakfast. We noticed that the staff was putting away the outside furniture. We asked the waiter what was going on and they said just putting some things away . They didn’t want to tell us why. We walked to the beach and saw tourists dragging their luggage through the sand by the beach. They asked us if we were going to evacuate. My wife and I look at each other dumbfounded. I went to the front office and asked the receptionist what was going on. They didn’t want to tell us. Several guests were also trying to get information. Finally one of the girls told us in spanish that the island needed to be evacuated. I asked her what do we do and they told us that maybe there’s a church or school in the next town. Also that the hotel would not be able to assist us in any way to evacuate. We were on our own in a foreign country we know only the language. My wife and I dragged our luggage too through the sand on the beach until we reached the Main Street to get us to the ferry. We were soaking wet with sweat and trying to buy water. Every store on the way to the ferry was closed. At the ferry they tried to price gouge us but I had to show them that I didn’t have any more money in my wallet than what it actually cost. It was almost impossible to find a taxi or transporte to anywhere else. We got lucky and I called our transporte from the airport to Chiquila. He transported us

    Biggest pool was closed, because Hurricane Delta was coming. We just stayed one night because we were evacuated from the island. Hotel evacuated us by foot through the beach, with our luggage on hand, no transportation were available to get to the port to take the Ferry.
