If you are like me you spend hours trying to make a decision about where to stay; well, stop looking , this is the ONLY place on Holbox I would stay. I agonized over booking this or one of a few other places, then when we were there I went and looked at those other places, and was so happy that we chose the AMAZING Palapas del Sol
We had a front facing room- gorgeous view, the best bed of our month travels in Mexico, unbelievably delicious food ( we never ate anywhere else- why would you??) great little bar with real drinks (real fruit, a very healthy pour), perfectly clean grounds and beach (which is definitely not the case at many of the other hotels, including the expensive ones), the perfect distance from town- an easy 15 minute walk down the road, or even better, down the beach. The "town" seems like it might be loud at night, and was not clean like around Palapas del Sol. Importantly. for a beach location, by far the best beach loungers with thick comfy cushions, under beautiful big palapas that I have ever seen or laid on.
BEST of ALL...the one thing I haven't gotten to- The INCREDIBLE staff, and I mean incredible. Martin, the manager is extraordinary -he knows how to run a hotel. Eddie the bartender and the ladies who cook some damn good food, all fantastic. I do not know when these people sleep, they are always there to help, pour a drink, tell a story, and on the magical nights, play the guitar and sing. Adriana the owner is just lovely and gives all due credit to her staff.
This place is magical. We don't go back to the same place very often, well other than Paris, but even there we change locations I can not wait to go back to Palapas del Sol.
