Fodor's Expert Review Las Nubes de Holbox

Paseo Kuka s/n, 77310, Mexico Fodor's Choice

On the island's remote northeast side, this luxurious waterfront retreat has rooms in four white buildings, complete with tile floors, beamed ceilings, thatched roofs, and contemporary decor. There are three pools and plenty of hammocks and chairs, but the beach is virtually nonexistent unless you head slightly west of the property. There is, however, a small sandbar just offshore where candlelit dinners are served (guests are taken across by canoe). The unobstructed views from the rooftop terrace are stunning, and there is ample wildlife to keep you entertained, including flamingos, iguanas, and a pet raccoon that hangs out in common areas. Note that this is one of the only properties on the island to offer Wi-Fi in every room, turndown service, room service, and a full spa. Although a far walk from town, Las Nubes offers complimentary bikes; you can also catch a golf cart-taxi for MX$100.
