I've been going to Isla Holbox for 7 years now. Most of those years I spent at Casa Maya. Casa maya is also a lower priced hotel, but I'm afraid It's going a little downhill in the last 3-4 years. This year I decided to switch it up to CasA Barbara. It was immediately obvious that the Barbara was an...

I was not expecting much upon arrival. This was truly a last-second stop and go. To tell you the truth, I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were clean, the staff is friendly, and it was close to everything. If you're expecting a resort-style hotel, look elsewhere. Though, if you're the adventurous traveler type and will be using this as a...

Hotel Casa Barbara was good value for money but a short walk to beach. Clean, air conditioning and continental breakfast. They have tv but nothing to Watch in English, weather channel good info. No safe in room which I feel is necessary on vacation, had to carry money around just in case.
