BEACHFRONT HOTEL LA PALAPA The ocean and the sound of crashing waves at your doorstep

The Beachfront Hotel La Palapa is conveniently located in the popular Holbox Island area: an idyllic oceanfront location at just one minute walking away from the main square in the center of the tranquil Holbox village, heart of island life with Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Chichén Itzá and all the most important ancient Mayan ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula at just two hours away.

Designed with Colonial-Caribbean style, the Beachfront Hotel La Palapa is a romantic hotel for adults only with 25 rooms, all with air conditioning, free Wi-Fi internet, private bathroom with our typical seashell shower head.

Relax in our palm garden with lounge chairs & hammocks overlooking the sea.

The Beach Bar & Restaurant Punta Baja, set under a cozy beachfront palapa overlooking the Caribbean Sea, is the perfect spot to enjoy tempting dishes and amazing cocktails all day long. Breakfast, snacks and dinner service are available throughout the day. The spectacle you can see with your eyes, the sea, the palm trees, the white sandy beach and the tropical sunset, is just the beginning of your experience here in Holbox.

In the morning, you can have a rich and inspiring continental, mexican or italian breakfast and, during the day, fresh cocktails and snacks under the palm trees of our beach club. The magic tropical sunset, enjoying a nice drink, will be an unforgettable experience that you will want to relive every day!

Our special "Palapa Breakfast" is a great way to start the day. For this healthy and delicious type of breakfast we select all the components with careful consideration, such as seasonal fruits from the local area, natural juices, jams and marmalades, eggs, homemade bread, ending with a nice italian espresso coffee, capucciono or tea.

On the third floor, book lovers can sit and relax in our Reading Room that features comfortable chairs, tables, books, free wi-fi internet and a ocean view balcony.

As a vital complement of a high-level hotel, we created two Wellness areas (surcharge): one private indoor SPA with heated whirlpool & area for couple massages...

... and one outdoor SPA with exclusive use of our panoramic Jacuzzi in the rooftop: the perfect setting also for a romantic dinner with the alluring backdrop of the Caribbean Sea, where couples can delight an exquisite menu under the mexican moonlight.

The rooftop Terrace & Solarium is equipped with deck chairs, sun loungers, comfortable hammocks and shower...

... the ideal place for relaxing and sunbathing or simply enjoying cocktails with friends in the open air, amazed by a breathtaking view over Holbox island and the ocean.
