Very nice hotel with friendly staff directly at the beach with lots of free sunbeds, chairs and hammocks. The location has pros and cons - it is close to everything (main plaza one minute away), however the water is not as good as up the coast - however the beach is wide and kept very well. A breakfast consisting of...

Positive: rooms were clean, they have mosquito nets, A/C and are directly at the beach. Negative: the hotel is directly next to a bar with live music every day till 1am in the night. And in the morning around 6.30 the fishermen start their day, shout and are very noisy. So it's very hard to have a good sleep. In...

The title says everything there is to say: we like it here, the rooms with beach view are amazing, but breakfast is rather tiny and the service is rather average for Mexico (which means it is rather bad when compared to similar destinations in Asia).

This little hotel is in a great spot. Right on the beach and a couple of blocks from downtown. We stayed in a second floor beachfront room with a beautiful balcony and view. They included a continental breakfast that we completed with "huevos motuleños", the restaurant have a great chef and the food was outstanding! Sometimes the fruit water wasn't...

I really do not understand the good appraisals of this hotel. It is old, dark, and situated at the wrong place on the beach where all the seeweet comes together. You have to,go swimming at the neighbours! So my advice, look for places north of this hotel.

I have visited this perfect island for the last 11 years. Amaite Hotel is a great hotel that we found four years ago. The hotel is right on the beach and a block from the center of town.

Step out of your room and onto a beautiful beach with warm blue water. What a great place to stay. 3brm suite has a large private garden area with table and chairs with a hammock. Waiters serve on your private beach and their beachfront restaurant is great. Staff is very helpful from the front desk to the bar.

We have stayed at Amaite twice - once at the end of October in 2015 and for Easter week of 2016. Both times I found the staff to be beyond accommodating. Both times I arrived exhausted and the staff did everything to make me as comfortable as possible. The first time telling us to check in the next morning because...

My son (3) and I stayed at Amaite in May. I was very happy with the experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The wifi signal was strong, the air conditioner cooled our room well, and the breakfast was delicious. I felt very safe at Amaite (and on all of Holbox). We...
