Xaloc Resort is a small ecotourism hotel, designed to enjoy the natural paradise of the Holbox with no sign of the overcrowding elsewhere in the Caribbean. Located in a spectacular white sand beach and between the tropic vegetation of the island, you must only walk a few minutes for knowing its small town: among its colorful houses, walking through its sand streets and tasting some typical food you will really know the true Mexican culture. Likewise, at the hotel you will find all the environments needed to enjoy all different options offered by the place: two intimate and quiet pools, a lounge for reading and resting, some sofas under the palapas where you will be able to enjoy the sea breeze, a small terrace on the beach for tanning or tasting some food by day and for having some drinks, while looking at the stars, by night... And, of course, our restaurant Majache, where every meal is really special.

The staff's friendliness and desire to please was the highlight of this hotel. The rooms were clean and fine, but the adult pool was not debris free and the beach chairs were often in poor shape. The location is fantastic and we felt we got a good
deal for the price. The restaurant left a great deal to be desired, however, and not one I'd recommend.

Short walk from hotel
Try the various restaurants on Holbox--there is delicious food to be had outside the hotel.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. Xaloc and any of the places on Isla Holbox are NOT Cancun/Playa del Carmen mega-resorts but are small places where the staff knows your name. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the action downtown but
far enough away to be quiet. Beach walks were great but the beach can't be groomed like Cancun because there appear to be environmental laws that prevent this. If you're picky about walking on a little bit of seaweed then this place might not be for you. On the other hand if you're looking for something off the beaten path where you can meet locals, then this place is great! We cut our teenager loose on the island and he had a blast hanging out.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
It sounds like renting a golf cart has been recommended by others. If you can walk a few hundred meters to restaurant/bars (or the ~1 km to the port) then I would say that they're an expensive hassle.
