The bar at the Hotel Arena is outstanding! They have the best view of Holbox Isla, play contemporary music and their drinks are nice and cold. The atmosphere is terrific in this off-the-beaten-path location. We did not stay at the hotel but the bar which is on the top floor is completely open overlooking the entire island. Great for people...

I ALWAYS wear ear plugs down in the Yucatan. People do complain of noise from the bar. Holbox is much more commercialized that I had envisioned and prices are high due to its island location. Our room was clean.

Wide stairs lead to the 2nd floor rooms. The registration desk and a shop are beneath on main level.The rooms are plain but nice and clean. The pillow-top bed is very comfortable and a.c. quiet. A jacuzzi type 10' round pool is on the roof with a (pricey) bar. You get a good view of the town, and sunsets which...
