The hotel has its historic charm and lovely ocean views. The beds are comfortable. A couple of things related to service made this hotel resulted in a low "average" rating. 1) Upon checking in I was given tickets for breakfast. To access the buffet breakfast (which was varied and decently good), one needs to present one ticket per person to... More

When I go to Veracruz I really want to immerse myself in its history, so it's here for Boca/beach and the Gran Hotel Diligencias for the port city. Because there's not much around the Mocambo but a nice but missable shopping center and a number of more modern hotels (the ones that get better ratings here, but don't impress me... More

This is a charming, friendly and attractive hotel overlooking the sea, set in large terraced grounds leading down to the main pool and then down further to the beach where there is a large area for residents to relax by another pool. Because of the different levels,it makes this an interesting and very pleasant place to stay, however, the only... More

I wanted to give this hotel 3 stars but I am one to appreciate character and I could see through the ages to the grandiose place it once was. I adored the beautiful woodwork and stained glass. I was smitten with the ancient elevator. The location is beautiful with sea views and the lights along the crescent shaped bay at... More

We (Friend and I) spent some days close to Veracruz and found this lovely colonial-style hotel very close to Mocambo Beach, directly south of downtown Veracruz, is located partially in the city and partially in the neighboring municipality of Boca del Rio. We had the rooms close to the pool and Sr. Benito served cold drinks with a big smile... More

I have been at Mocambo hotel for many times many years. It is not like the other hotels built room over room. Hotel Mocambo is a wide, and ample place with stunning views to the sea. The staff there has been always kind to me. The weekend breakfast buffet is very good, an you just can´t have a better time... More

We stayed here in Nov. 2012. This is a neat old hotel with lots of character and has a staff that was always there to tend to any needs we had. Yes it's old, but these kind of older properties add to going to places throughout the world. The room was very clean and had a very comfortable bed. Instead... More

We spent two nights here before flying out of Veracruz airport (much better than Mexico City airport!). Very nice room. Old hotel with lots of character! Great breakfast included with the rate. And a much better value than the first hotel we checked out. We would definitely stay there again!

The Mocambo may have more history than the other hotels in Boca del Rio (which is five or six miles to the south of downtown Veracruz), but the service in this hotel is lacking considering the price you pay (about 100 dollars per night or more). It is clear that the owners of the place have decided to cut costs... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in November, 2007. I was in town for a conference at the WTC and this place was a perfect location nearby. The breakfast buffet is a great deal and the food was tasty. If you don't want a buffet, there are many restaurants a short walk away. It is a bit older, but there... More
