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

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2007

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days and were impressed by the romantic vistas, traditional style, and even the food in the restaurant, which is good and half the price of most hotel fair. If you get a room with a view of the sea, you are better off. They are clean and neat if somewhat spartan. The staff... More

We stayed in this hotel from Feb. 4th - 7th, 2006. We will stay again only if the other option we have is to stay in the streets.

When we arrived at Hotel Mocambo after an all night bus ride, our room was ready and waiting and the front desk promptly checked us in and had a bellman escort us to our room as dawn was breaking. A gorgeous sunrise view was our reward, along with black out curtains that let our sleep deprived bodies happy! Each morning,... More

We stayed in the hotel for two nights and three days in December. The food was excellent and the rooms were very comfortable. For people who like to sleep in the curtains are very thick and no light gets in the room unless you want there to be. For such a nice place I found that the televisions were a... More
