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 La Palapa, 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, tropical cocktails and snacks are available throughout all 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.

The Beach Bar & Restaurant La Palapa is a fusion cuisine restaurant, using techniques from different parts of the world, adapting them to our local products, which are supplied by local fishermen, which helps us to always have fresh and excellent quality products. Our chef Mario proposes 4 different menus: the breakfast menu, the lunch menu, which ends at sunset, the dinner menu and the gourmet dinner menu. We have menus with fish, seafood, meat and for all types of diners (vegans and vegetarians).

In the morning, you can have a rich and inspiring Continental Breakfast with a nice italian espresso coffee, capucciono or tea.

For our breakfast we select all the components with careful consideration, such as seasonal fruits from the local area, natural juices, jams and marmalades. 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!

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