Casa Sandra is a laid-back boutique style hotel on Isla Holbox, managed by the owner, a prolific artist.

Casa Sandra is a unique, boutique-style hotel on the vehicle-free, relax-zone which is the island of Holbox just off the north coast of the Yucatán peninsula. The owner, Sandra Pérez, is a full-time artist, and the property is decorated with many examples of her work.

She aims to create a haven of peace and relaxation, so the 18 guest rooms, otherwise simply and beautifully decorated and furnished with rustic-chic wooden and wicker furniture and floaty drapes, do not have TV, Wifi or telephones. But you can look out at the azure waters of the calm Caribbean Sea from all the guest rooms, there is a restaurant offering romantic dining and weddings can be arranged here.

What our clients say

  • Most Memorable Moment?: So many! Maybe the balloon ride? 

    KFD, London
  • We liked the variety of our trip -  ancient Mayan ruins, real Mexican towns and people, and beautiful beaches. It was wonderful to access Chichen Itza from the grounds of Mayaland Resort and get in there early and before it was too hot without any crowds. We loved swimming in Dzitnup Cenote. 

    PR
  • Highlights?: The serenity at Uxmal and the delightful city of Oaxaca

    MF, London
  • Highlight?: Calakmul, its a long journey to get there  ( 2 hours from Xpujil alone ) so plenty of anticipation, not busy and complete freedom to walk around as opposed to other sites. Did actually see some monkeys in the trees too. 

    DB, Teddington
  • “It's impossible to pick any individual aspect; but a number of experiences stood out: the visit to the "voodoo" church at St Juan Chamula (extraordinary and unexpected), the visit to the shrine of the Madonna of Guadalupe on the way to Teotihuacan in Mexico City (similar, and helped understand Mexican history), Palenque (the most beautiful and atmospheric of the pre-hispanic sites), and swimming in the three cenotes at Cuzama near Mérida, which we arranged ourselves.”

    AR, Gospel Oak
  • "The tours provided were everything that we hoped, with the tour guides very good."

    GS, Rayleigh

Our expert's view

Hannah Waterhouse
Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert

Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.

Overlooking the sea, this small boutique hotel offers a lovely pool in lush gardens as well as a white sand beach – perfect for a relaxing stay. I really liked the day beds on the beach for guests and the pop up beach bar as great extra touches. The rooms are cool and comfortable and decorated with art done by the artist owner.
