The review from July 2011 just below this one is completely accurate. I want to point out that there is also a blender (great for mixed drinks if you want) and an ample number of hamocks hanging about. We had a 13 month old with us and stayed in one of the apartments. The kitchen was stocked with basics and allowed us to have breakfasts and an occasional evening meal. And the 2nd room gave us a chance to hang out while junior napped or went to bed early. The hostess seemed to be custom made to own a small hotel, being enthusiastic and very friendly. Our host took care of any minor problems quickly. The towels were plush and the organic bath supplies awesome.
The closest dining (slow food restaurant) was only a few minutes walk down the beach and was one of our favorite restaurants on the island being a classic beach bar (shack). Food on Holbox isn't that great and a bit overpriced. We didn't feel like we missed much by eating in a few times.
Our son is a terror in regards to keeping a place clean. The cleaning lady got all of the Cherrios in all of the corners picked up every day.
The dogs were great with our son, very calm and our hosts were wonderful in loaning us a playmat to lay down on the hard floors of the living room and a crib w/ mosquito net. The bugs weren't all that bad in January except right around dawn and dusk.
