Boho beachside boutique with hammocks and thatched palapas on an unspoiled, car-free Isla Holbox
CasaSandra's charismatic owner, music producer and artist Sandra Perez, originally hails from Cuba. She has carefully curated the common areas, guestrooms and suites to showcase Mexican crafts and art. The original artwork is (mostly) for sale. Antiques come from Guadalajara or Cuba; much of the furniture is rattan. At night, common areas are lit with candles and star lights, and pathways are lined with torches. Overall there's a sophisticated boho vibe, all effortless barefoot style.
Bed and Bath
Rooms and suites are scattered throughout the main building and in casitas on the grounds. All feel spacious, with white walls, palapa roofs and beams, and kingsize beds dressed in 500-thread-count sheets. Each has a westward-facing balcony or terrace with bright hammocks from which to view the sun sinking into the turquoise Caribbean waters. Textiles hand-embroidered by an artist in Mexico City, conch shell showerheads and painted bowl sinks lend a sense of place. Bathrooms have organic bath amenities; book a suite if you'd like a tub.
The gourmet restaurant and terrace sits at the heart of the hotel serving Mexican-Caribbean fare with a big emphasis on fish and seafood (think ceviche, shrimp and lobster tail). Drinks are on offer both here and at the Blue Lounge Pool Bar. Order a mojito and kick back to the cool tunes. Breakfasts are ample, with fruit salad, yogurt, cakes, granola and homemade breads and muffins alongside à la carte items such as huevos rancheros.
