A seriously brilliant stay at this beautiful, secluded yet central place on Holbox. We are travelling around for a while and this was the best place we have stayed so far. In particular the roof terrace, we never wanted to leave it but the idyllic beaches were also very tempting. The room was clean and tidy, and was also made up every day which is a complete bonus with airbnbs. The hosts were very forthcoming with exceptional recommendations and arranging a private transfer from Cancun and back. We will be back to this amazing island and wonderful accommodation. Thank you Antione!

I can really recommend this place. It's clean, quiet and not even a 5 minutes walk to the beach. Holbox is a beautiful island, we stayed for 5 nights and there were still a lot of things to discover.

This was our favorite place we stayed on our trip around Mexico! The room is super cute and thoughtfully appointed with the necessities as well as a lot of nice to haves. The best part is the magical private terrace above the treetops with a 360 view of the island, complete with an outdoor shower and observation deck. Don't miss laying on the lounge chairs and stargazing at night. Amazing. In addition, Antoine and his wife are incredibly helpful and after 10 years on the island, they are experts. I feel like our stay was 100% better than it would have been because of their guidance and recommendations. Listen to them, they will not lead you astray! Finally, do the whale shark tour if physically/financially able. It was incredible.

It is a beautiful place, though it can be hard to find when you first reach the island (Good to know - The hotel is called Villa los Mangles, Palapita del Amor is the name of this room). You have a fantastic view from the huge private terrace. There could be more of a door to the toilet, other than that the room is perfect and spotless :)

Response from Antoine:
Thanks Cecile we really look forward to welcoming you back! We appreciate the suggestion about the saloon-like door of the bathroom, we actually already have planned to change it to a regular door.

I have been living on this little paradise since 2007, on Holbox I found the most ideal conditions to settle down and live: extreme quietness, friendly people and one amazing natural surrounding; not to mention the unique opportunity to go and swim with whale sharks at least twice a year.
