Over Villas Paraiso del Mar
Het eilandje Holbox ligt voor de noordkust van Yucatán. Vanuit Cancún eerst drie uur rijden en dan nog een half uur met de pont. En dan ben je echt ver weg van het drukke strandleven in Cancún: er is veel natuur, weinig toeristen, een tropisch mangrovebos en in het natuurgebied Yum Balam kunt u vogels spotten: flamingo's, pelikanen en ibissen. Gaat u liever zelf het water in? Dan kunt u ook zwemmen met walvishaaien. Het hotel vindt het belangrijk haar steentje bij te dragen aan het milieu en er is veel in duurzaamheid geinvesteerd. Na een dagje activiteiten is het lekker bijkomen in het zwembad. Het hotel heeft geen groot aanbod aan faciliteiten maar dat hoeft ook niet. Isla Holbox is namelijk een prachtig eiland en u komt hier als rustzoeker en natuurliefhebber.

Ziet u zichzelf al op het strand liggen met een Margarita in uw hand? In Yucatán vindt u dat typisch Mexicaanse sfeertje. Tussen Cancún en de Maya ruïnes van Tulum bevindt zich een lange strook maagdelijk wit strand: de Riviera Cancún en de Riviera Maya. De fraaie laagbouw hotels, veelal all inclusive, liggen hier verscholen tussen de tropische begroeiing.
"Very disappointing hotel"
We were very disappointed with the hotel. To start with, it does not have a beach. Yes, there is a beach across the road and a hedge from the hotel, but it is a public beach and there is no need to stay in the hotel to use it. There are not sun loungers or shade on the beach, so you have to stay on your beach towel. The sun loungers provided by the hotel are in not very nice area, not even on the sand and you can barely glimpse the sea from them.We ended up staying by the pool as it is nicer area or going to a different hotel to use their facilities as it was so much better (Case Tortugas in case you are wondering). The housekeeping was not the best to say it nicely. I am not sure maybe we were not leaving enough tips for her. We were quite upset about the state of our room so ended up going to the reception to ask how much tips we should be leaving as apparently we were not leaving enough. The first 2 days the room was cleaned OK. Than we had some of the towels changed, we had not enough towels left, we had only one bottle of water left, we had no water left at all. I went to the reception to ask for water when we were given none and was told it will be delivered to our room, but it never arrived. Most of the reception staff was nice. But it would be great to be given the beach towels without having to come back to the reception to ask for them. The staff at the pool bar were quite surly and looked like we were bothering them when we went to ask for drinks. Most of them barely spoke English. The breakfast was OK, but again the breakfast staff needs extra training. One morning we waited for the coffee for so long that I went with the cups to where the coffee was just to be told to go back to sit and wait. One morning there were no cups on the table when we came, the staff were walking around offering coffee but no one bothered to come to us as we had to cups. So we had to stop one of them to ask for cups and coffee. The tours they are offering at the hotel are very overpriced. The 3 islands tour costs 515pesos at the hotel but only 400 pesos if you book it through the tour agents at the village and the Cabo Catoche tour costs 1430 pesos at the hotel and 1000pesos at the village. The village is only a shot walk away from the hotel and has plenty of restaurants, so I was not sure why would someone want all inclusive in the hotel. We tried their lunch buffet when we arrived as we were starving and had to wait till 3pm for the check in. The food was good but not spectacular. The service again was quite poor. On the positive, the rooms are big and nicely decorated. The wi-fi works in the room, if not very well. The massage offered at the hotel is great. The packed breakfast we were offered as we had to leave early in the morning was a nice touch.
"Very good, not great"
My complaints are of a personal nature, you might have a totally different take. The property is clean and very nice. The staff friendly enough but the thing is, Paraiso Del Mar I think doesn't know exactly what they want to be. Are they a hotel or an all inclusive resort? There are several 'all and semi inclusive' options available which is what I don't like. I don't like having to put on a wrist band, I don't like buffets which is what they offer. I understand the difficulty in serving a variety of foods to a large number of visitors from all over the world but to me, constant buffets are not the answer. The lunch buffet that we paid for on day one was ok, but not for 760 pesos. For that, you can have a mighty fine meal in town with drinks. Little things were wrong. Slow drains that didn't get fixed, a safe with no lock, the bed only had a flat sheet, wifi so slow (I know, what do I need wifi for anyway? Good point) it was like watching grass grow. So I guess it's what you like, for me, this formula didn't work, 4 stars, not 5.
"you're almost there!!!"
Ill say this- Holbox is worth the trek. It is a very special place- right on the brink of exploding into the next "it" spot. This hotel will fit in nicely as the vibe is very design-y. When you drive up in your golf cart to the front door you are welcomed by a large atrium. Not an all inclusive type fake space- it feels very authentic. The greeting after a long day was warm and engaging. We were shown to our room. It was just what we wanted- understated yet cozy. The only thing- it was on the outer perimeter- next door to a hotel under construction, We asked about moving rooms but since the place was full- no luck. By the third day we were in a new room. Just as nice. I have to say- the private pool rooms are not the primo spots. I think the ones on the second floor are much more private and desirable. Our only qualm with the hotel is that is was loud-ish. I don't mean to complain but when you take a plane- 3 hr taxi- a ferry and then a golf cart- you want to hear the ocean or nothing. Holbox is a fishing village not Cancun. The daytime food is top notch and the service is impeccable . The large selection of mezcal is a treat as is the guacamole. We loved starting our day eating breakfast- our afternoons on the beach and the early evenings under one of the beds on the roof top terrace bar. All in all it was a great experience
The room Is very nice, the terrace is the best is fine for couples and family. The location Is a very small island, it's not in downtown but is very easy to get there. The food Is normal nothing extraordinary. The personnel They have different prices at the room for the massages than the ones that provide it to you at check in; they do not respect the price advertised by the room (the supervisor at nigh Diego only suggested to canceled instead of respect the price advertised) The receptionist never call me back when I book the masage for confirmation, I have to go there. We had a dificultie at the check out. I call to ask for a taxi in at 5:00 am in the morning in the personel at the reception at night suggested me that at the momento of the check out they will arrenge that. it was a nightmare all the taxisest were slept. In general my stady was pleasent just the receptionis personnel at night was not the best, they don't call you back, they don't book the things on time or make sure that you not have any dificulties
"Great property but island has been discovered!"
The property and its accommodations was wonderful! However, with all the previous rain in Holbox much flooding caused sewage and electrical problems. Wiith overcrowding of too many hotels, Holbox is not equipped to deal with these issues and the sanitary needs of all these people. They need to stop building! Also it's starting to look like spring break!
