Our bungalow was close to the beach with a king bed, desk area, large dressing area and good showers. there is a small patio with a hammock ! the pools are great, staff very friendly and kind. Holbox is very much...

Stayed here for a week. Good location, and a nice beach spot. The breakfast was descent, but we never ate lunch/dinner here - not the coziest setting for it. The room was okay as well. Stayed with my girlfriend, and we enjoyed the stay.

We stayed a week at Xaloc and we're extremely satisfied. We lived in a bungalow at the back of the resort for some days until some polish guests started to make too much noises at night juat outside our bungalow. After that night the crew at Xaloc upgraded to a bungalow with seaview. That what really appreciated. We also ate...

Tenia mucho tiempo anhelando conocer Holbox. Decidimos mi novio y yo que esta isla seria un destino ideal para nuestro siguiente viaje. Pero para hacer de tu viaje una experiencia completa e inolvidable hay que tomar buenas decisiones todo el tiempo. El hospedaje, locación u hotel, es una sino la mas importante de todas. Encontré "Xaloc Resort" y me pareció...

Xaloc is ok.. some annoyances, dark rooms, pools could have been skimmed, breakfast a bit lackluster, and flattened springs in mattress, but they didn't stop us enjoying our stay there. Even the construction noise was bearable. They could do with adding some sun umbrellas top the loungers on the beach.

They said a refund could be done with the travel agency. I took photos of the beds and now they say WE JUST TURNED IN THE KEY AND LEFT...NO WE DID NOT. We had two days of discussions about beds. THEY LIE. The staff even told us that the owner lives in SPAIN and does not want to spend money....

Xaloc was a nice hotel. I stayed there for several days last year and the staff and grounds are nice. Above the lobby there is a library with tons of books to choose from and a nice terrace to read on. They have two pools and the hotel ambience was very quiet and chill. Free breakfast in the morning was...

If you are a refugee from Playa del Carmen or Isla de Mujeres, this is a nice place. Holbox, in general, is far from the peaceful and placid paradise that people often describe. It is, in fact a little sister to the industrial resort towns of the Costa de Sol. Be aware, for instance that the picturesque "golf carts" are...

Do yourself a favor and just avoid Xaloc. First of all- the place reeks of sewage- probably because of the dirty swampy area at the entrance of the hotel. The rooms are not clean and very dark, the shower is old and shabby but the most annoying was the noise- apparently the hotel is located between two extremely noisy construction...
