Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this house, everything was perfect. It has everything you need and the beach is right outside of the front gate. The stores and markets are just 2 blocks away which also makes it convenient. Marco the manager booked our travel from the airport all the way to the house which made it much easier than booking everything separate. He also responds fast if there's a problem. Our stove ran out of propane and he came within an hour to replace it. Will definitely be back.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sol y Mar. Perfect for 2 couples. Stayed for a week. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook a few meals. Beds very comfortable. A/C not needed, but would have been a nice amenity on a couple very humid nights. 20 steps from porch to beach was excellent for a quick cool off. Proximity to town center was great, about a 3-4 block walk. The bar/grill next door is awesome. Got to know the guys there by name. Very convenient for drinks and food. I was worried about it being so close before we got there, but it was a big part of our enjoyment of Sol y Mar. Marco set up all transportation from Cancun airport to our front door (van, ferry, golf cart taxi). He checked on us a couple times to ensure all was well. I HIGHLY recommend this house on Holbox. Nothing else like it on the beach that we could see. We will be back! Scott M., Fort Worth, TX

Great spot, close to town

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, including 3 teenage boys, stayed here in April for 3 nights. The house was perfectly designed for guests to drift from its open concept area to private spaces. There is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the outside views with its hammocks on the ground floor, a second floor balcony looking over ocean adjoined to loft bedroom, and a third floor patio with/or without cover. The constant ocean breeze gave us continuous relief on every level of house. The waves created enough sound that we were not bothered by town noise. There was a small, laid back beach restaurant adjacent to the house that sold good guacamole, ceviche, tacos and drinks.

It's only a 5-10 minute walk to town where there is an abundance of restaurants, bars and music. This is one of the only beach-side rental houses with this proximity to town. No need for a golf cart - we rented a few bikes.

So glad we chose to spread out here instead of a room in the hotel zone. I would recommend it to families with older children ( I agree with the owner that the stairs are not suitable for young children).

Perfect location and comfortable environment!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 6 days on Holbox and it was totally relaxing. The water was calm and beautiful. We explored on foot and on bike and enjoyed delicious food. Marco handled all our transportation details from the airport and it was seamless. He gave recommendations to many restaurants that did not disappoint. Look forward to our next trip back!

We loved it !

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience at solimar ! The home was well appointed as well as in the best possible location if you like being in the thick of things. You could not be more centrally located. We had two very noisy nights so if you are traveling with little kids , keep that in mind. We were well taken care of by the owner and care taker. This is a great place to stay in Holbox !

1st floor 5 star. 2nd floor bedroom, no privacy.

  • 3 of 5

This is a house with a 5 star first floor and bedroom. Unfortunatly the second floor "bedroom" is just a bed in a loft with no privacy from the first floor. If you sleep in the buff or aren't into public intimacy you have to wait until the other guests are in for the night. We loved the 1stt floor, the location, the porch but sadly we were on the 2nd floor and that ruined the experiance for us. My wife and I have been traveling Yucatan every year for over 25 years...Isla Mujeras, Xcalak, Celestune, Merida and this is the first time our room spoiled the trip.

I fished with Alajandro..Sr. Sandflea again and as always caught lots of tarpon. The food on Holbox is great...try Viva Zapata. This was our 4th trip to Holbox and would love to stay at this house again...on the first floor. It is a gem but I wouldnt ask friends to stay on the 2nd. And beware of the flimsy banister on the spiral staircase. So sorry I couldnt give this 5 plus stars but not as a two bedroom house as it appeared in the photos.
