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.
"Mostly great, a couple of challenges"
Overall our stay at this property was great. We had a master suite and it was awesome - absolutely wonderful location, suite 200, a balcony with chairs, a patio with hammock, right on the sand at the end of the property closest to the beach. We loved the location - walk out the front of the property, take a right, and walk to town with several hotels on the way so tons of restaurant choices. Go out the back of the property and go either direction and there are lots of delightful beach bars. We were concerned because we'd read the hotel was "across the street" from the beach which I suppose technically is true, but it is a non-issue. We are insistent with regards to staying on properties right on the water and for all intents and purposes, this meets that criteria. The water is right there, just beyond a little dune so to speak, and the "street" is just a strip of sand so really it's just an extended beach. We were very early to check in and they were quite gracious, held our bags for us, gave us a welcome drink, let us head to the beach with instructions to return at 3 PM, but they were also late having our room ready; they got very backed up in the lobby around check-in time and we weren't actually in until closer to 4 PM, by this time there were lots of people standing around waiting for rooms. The bartenders at the beach bar were the best - shout out to Jorge and Jesus who made the most incredible margaritas and pina coladas and were always there with a drink and a smile. They come by the beach chairs occasionally and make sure we had a beer, a food menu if we needed it, whatnot. Great service and they are wonderful representatives of the hotel. We experienced a couple small problems. One was the constant construction of some type of gazebo right outside our room on the beach. The sawing and cutting (motorized chainsaw) went on ALL the TIME. Just a constant loud buzzzzzzz. It was pretty annoying. I know they have to do construction sometime, and better during the day than at night when people are trying to sleep, but wow, if they could limit it to a couple hours a day, that would be nice. The other problem started out as a TERRIBLE smell in our room that turned out to be a gas leak. When we checked in we noticed the smell and if the room had not been so beautiful, we would have moved, because it was a bad sewer smell. I had brought some essential oils so we walked around shaking peppermint oil everywhere, covering Kleenex with it and putting it near the A/C, etc. This went on for a full day and finally my husband mentioned it to one of the housekeeping staff but either she did not understand or she did not mention it to anyone, or the person she mentioned it to did not follow up, because nothing changed. At any rate, on the third day of our stay, my husband said "I'm going to go around the back side of this building (where the bathroom window opened) and see if there is a back up pipe or drainage problem or something causing this smell" . He came back and reported there was a vent on something that wasn't connected properly and what we were smelling was a gas leak. He's a firefighter so was able to recognize the problem once he inspected it visually, had nothing to do with sewage but was related to water heater. We reported it to the front desk and they came and fixed it but we never got a "We're sorry, here let us send you a bottle of wine" or even "Wow, yikes, so dangerous, thank you so much for telling us" or anything like that. It truly could have been a very bad situation with gas leaking in our bathroom window for three days and we were lucky it was no more than a bad smell. The third problem was that we rented bikes and there was some confusion between my husband and the lady in charge of the rentals with regards to the price. What he thought was the per day rate was actually the per hour price. In fairness, A)he did sign a form with the rate, (it was in Spanish, so he didn't know what he was signing, but we were in Mexico so the onus is on us to learn the language) and B) if we'd stopped and thought about it, we would have realized the rate was too low ($6 per) for it to be a day rate; at that price of course it's hourly. The problem wasn't so much the misunderstanding but how the lady handled it when we returned the bikes and discovered the confusion. She was argumentative and angry and we didn't feel that she took a very service-oriented attitude, she just waved the piece of paper we signed in front of us. I agree with the comments on other reviews that the food is meh, but the breakfast was free, so it was fine, (the staff who come around with coffee were wonderful and ever-present, which since we love our morning joe, we appreciated) and there are tons of wonderful eating establishments nearby so this made us get out and about. The property itself was beautiful, very clean, again, a gorgeous setting. Again, just hit and miss on the service side.
"Really Pretty Hotel....Not Good Food"
We stayed here from Friday to Sunday for a weekend away. There was 6 of us in total and we had 2 rooms. the hotel is very nice. The staff was very friendly. I was in a master suite and it is just like the potos on the website. Loved the room. The air conditioning worked good, it had a great jacuzzi tub and was the perfect size for my family. downstairs has 2 sofatype beds... they are basically single beds and the perfect size for my 5 and 7 year old. upstairs is a King size bed and another air conditioning unit. Comfy beds, mexican style decor! There really is no wifi in the hotel, even in the lobby where they say they do have wifi. We were not ecpecting great wifi on the isalnd anyway, for us that was not a big deal. What we did not like was the restaurant, service or food! There was 1 restaurant, no room service. There was a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The buffet was small and the foor quality was not good. Breakfast was the best out of all 3. there is a menÃº as well for Lunch and dinner, again not a lot of optons and bad quality. the service was not great in the restaurant. I asked if they could plain natural pasta for my kids and it was a really big deal, asking for some cut up veggies with no hot sauce was also a big deal. That is the only part that was bad. The hotel staff was great, restaurant staff were not friendly and not very helpful.
"Lovely! Donâ€™t hesitate; book it!"
First; Holbox is an amazing destination! If you are looking the non fancy, real and chill Mexico youâ€™ll love it. The Paraiso Del Mar: amazing value for what you pay! *Junior Suite (Basic room on Expedia): great, spacious, clean, huge balcony, great bathroom with hot water. *Pool: nothing spectacular but totally fine and super clean. *Location: perfect, far enough from downtown (10 min walk) than it is quiet but easy access. Plus close to the part of the beach where you wanna be (amazing sandbar). *Breakfast: our room came with bfast and it was delicious full on buffet with omelette & juice station. *Transfers: Holbox is not easy to get to; so if itâ€™s your first visit book transfer ahead. We booked with the hotel and it was totally worth (not cheap, but easy). *Beach chairs; the hotel has beach chairs but you are not right on the beach; you are across the street hence you donâ€™t see the sea from the chairs. It wasnâ€™t a huge issue for is as we were in the water most of the time but it might be important for you! Tips: *Bring mosquito repellant (you are in the jungle after all) *Room has a mini fridge; bring a few beers with you; youâ€™ll save from buying from the mini bar. *Go to next door hotel, Palapa del Mar, for a drink at sunset at those rooftop pool. Drink and pizzas are delish *We booked the 3 Islands boat excursion right on the beach for 400 pesos. Do it; 3 hours of great fun!
One single word comes to mind when I describe this hotel and this vacation with my husband: peaceful and unique. The daily breakfast was excellent and I actually looked forward to it, the beach is the most beautiful I have ever seen, shallow and completely see through. Our bedroom was big and was cleaned daily and left spotless. I appreciate every moment we spent here, it was a very memorable place.
"Most wonderful stay!"
This was a most wonderful stay, with such friendly and helpful staff! Very clean and nice- beautiful beach- very good food- cosy surroundings. We celebrated my birthday there and they treated us with special concern at our arrival wich we highly appreciated! Weâ€™d love to come back some time!
