Beach Guesthouse Holbox Apartments & Suites
Ranked #3 of 36 Holbox Island B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 February 2012

We returned two weeks ago from a wonderful visit to Holbox Island and the lovely Holbox Apartments. I had been looking for the right place to rent with the other couple we were going with. One house a little further down the beach fell through but in the end we decided that was a blessing. We later saw it and although it was very private I think we were much happier where we were. Holbox Apt’s are just wonderful. It is owned, built by and lovingly taken care of by John and Mandi a fun couple from Holland. You could not ask for more friendly and gracious hosts. From letting me sit at their dining room table to get reception on my iPad to arranging taxis back to CUN and best of all calling every day or two for beer delivery to our gate. John would call and we would have our beer icy cold delivered by golf cart within 5 minutes or so.

There are 4 units , two below and 2 second story. One of the two units below is John and Mandi’s and this one is not for rent. The other one below is large and very nice with full kitchen. Holbxo Apt’s is perfect for 2 couples to rent. If you want the option of a full kitchen one couple can stay in first floor unit. The other can stay above and then you both have access to the great view and sunsets. We both had upstairs units and this worked great too. The balconies stretch across the whole building. They are separated by a little gate but there is access between them which is handy. They are roomy and nicely equipped with two loungers on each and each has a table and chairs. There is also and hammock which none of us used. We did spend many enjoyable hours on the balcony reading, chatting and playing Power Yahtzee. And of course enjoying those delivered beers while watching fabulous sunsets. The room on the west (?) gets more sun and a little better view but otherwise I think they were equal. The rooms themselves are also roomy and nicely equipped. The bed is king size and a bit firm but we loved it. There is a small stainless fridge which worked great and we made good use of. There is a also a sink and coffee maker so all that is missing is a cook top. Plenty of closet space and living area too. Bathroom was nice and shower large. Took a while to warm up but plenty warm and plentiful when it did. The entire unit is clean and comfortable and we loved the high palapa roofs and style of the building.

We 4 are very low maintenance people so we absolutely loved this place but if you need constant pampering etc you best look elsewhere. We had help and advice as soon as we needed it from John and Mandi but otherwise were left on our own. Just as we liked it. We loved the people and town of Holbox also. The town square is a 2-3 block walk from Holbox Apt’s by beach or street. The first part of the week we took the beach to town as the sand streets near us were flooded at the corners from a very large rain they had the week before but this was just fine with us. If you need tons of action etc again, you best go somewhere besides Holbox. It is a peaceful, lovely, quiet island just perfect for rest and relaxation. Tons of good restaurants and little stores for snacks/beverages. We will return again and will most definitely stay again at the Holbox Apartments.

We recently returned from a 4 week trip through Belize and Mexico and one of the highlights was staying a week at Holbox apartments.We rented the upstairs apartment and it exceeded our expectations.From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Mandy into their little slice of paradise.The apartment and grounds are lovingly taken care of by this wonderful couple. John even lent us his cooler so we could keep our cerveza icy cold why we sat on the terrace and enjoyed the sunshine and incredible views. The two upstairs apartments sit side by side so it was ideal for two couples.The short walk into town is a perfect way to start the morning( after a good cup of coffee) and watch the town come alive and see the children heading to school.We loved Holbox and John and Mandy thanks for everything.

We stayed five days in this very nice palapa style accommodation. It is a palapa-style building with only two rooms in the first floor with a great seaview and an apartement downstairs. It is very quiet, and just 10 minutes wak from the town. Enjoy a walk along the beach and have a cold drink in one of the bars. It is a wonderful and relaxing place the island of Holbox. The Apartamentos Holbox are a very good adress if you do not need hotelservice or a pool. Everything was exactly as we expected and it was very clean. The bed has a moskitonet, wich is highly recommended!
Thank you very much for a nice time.

Holbox Apartments is a small gem tucked away on Holbox Island. It is a simple place with a real Mexican flare. The palapa roof and the beautiful wood interior give the apartment charm. The view from the upper balcony is spectacular. It has sun and shade with hammocks to enjoy afternoon siestas. The property is close to town and is easy walking distance on the beach. It is a rare find with reasonable pricing. Would return again and stay at this unique apartment on the beach with amazing views.

Room Tip: Two Apartments. Upstairs has a refrigerator and downstairs has a full kitchen
