Villas HM Paraiso del Mar is a rustic Mexican style beach hotel perfect  as a base to explore Mexico's relaxed Holbox island. 

Basking on the sparkling white sands at Holbox on Mexico’s gulf coast, Villas HM Paraiso is perfectly positioned for exploration of this up and coming destination for travellers looking for a relaxed, unspoilt beach holiday. The low-rise thatched property blends in seamlessly with its palm-dotted surroundings. The coast lies just beyond a quiet lane in front of the hotel's garden. 

Guest rooms are simply furnished, with splashes of colours beloved of the region, featuring polished wooden floors and shutters and discreet artwork. Most have open air terraces with chairs and hammocks where you can be caressed by the sea breezes. 

The public areas are particularly attractive and spacious, with an al fresco restaurant and solarium and a small pool with loungers framed by flowery tropical gardens. The reading room is especially cosy. This economical property appeals to families who aren’t looking for constant entertainment, While some guests are staying on an all-inclusive basis, we recommend you venture into town to sample the many eateries.

What our clients say

  • Highlight: The Visit to Chichen Itza

    JL, London
  • Highlights?: Hacienda Ticum and Uxmal

    JS, Nantwich
  • As a first time traveler to Central America, I can't stress enough how pleasurable Journey Latin America made Mexico for us.  We feel as if we have a million magical memories that will last forever - sunsets over the Caribbean sea, ruins in the midst of the jungles, seas of pink flamingos, crocodiles nestling on the banks of the Canyon Del Sumida.  We were nervous as non Spanish speakers but we felt so supported without that horrible feeling of being over organized. Thank you again

  • "Mayan sites were really fantastic. Teotihuacan was excellent and Mildred was a very good guide. She enhanced the day."

    SP, London
  • “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
  • My sister summed it up by saying that there was nothing that she would have changed, the holiday was perfect.  Mexico was a delight, we had never been before, the people sincerely friendly and helpful, the service as great but everything exceeded expectations.  My sister and the children thought that the cenotes were amazing as they were such a surprise but we loved it all.

Our expert's view

Ben
Ben Line - Travel Expert

Ben fell in love with Latin America on a six month backpacking trip from Colombia to Mexico in 1995. Since then he has explored most of South America, including living in Peru for a year. He is now Head of Sales.

I thought Villas HM Paraiso del Mar offered great value for the price. It isn’t as stylish as some of the more upmarket boutique hotels on the island but the white sand beach across the sandy road from the hotel is delightful and because there are no beach facilities on that stretch of beach it was never busy. The separate kids pool was a real hit with our 1yr old!
