We loved staying at this lovely hotel on a beautiful beach within easy walking distance of the town. The staff was great, the setting is lovely. We were a large group and got a large room with several beds at reasonable rates. Highly recommended!

40 Canones is the best place to stay in this sleepy town down at the bottom of the Riviera Maya. You can think of the town like the Key West of Mexico, the further south you go the more chilled things get. Was one of my favourite towns on the coast. A few key points: 1. Far enough away from...

We had visited Mahahual once before but stayed outside of town. We saw this hotel and wanted to come back and stay there. The water walkway in the main lobby is so beautiful. We reserved a room, however once we go there we upgraded to a room with a balcony over looking the Malecon. The room had two additional twin... More

excelent location, great service, ideal for families, the beach is amazing, nice located, big bathroom with open showwer, good house keeping. no elevator, consider that. ask for an ocean view it worth it. Good cleaning. the restaurant ok, a little expensive, but just like the others.

Stayed at the 40 Canones for a week in June. It is nicely located at the end of the Malecon, away from a lot of the bars/restaurants. The room was small, but nicely appointed with seating and a big bathroom with an open shower. Housekeeping was okay, they cleaned the room very well, but didn't put out new water bottles... More

Don't think about it twice . The best beach in Mexico it's in Mahahual and the best choice to stay it's this hotel . We got a great superior room. It had a great balcony with an ocean view. The food was ok a little bit pricy but in comparison for what you pay in cancun , this is nothing... More

We spent four nights in room # 30 which is on the top floor with ocean view and balcony. The room was very nice although there is no place to sit in the room other than the beds. Also there is no dresser and a very tiny wall mounted shelf unit so we had to live out of our suitcase... More

We were really pleased with the welcome at the hotel, really nice and clean space. The familiar room that we got was very spacious and I would recommend to catch it if you travel in a group of friends, there´s only one toilet though. The bar-restaurant located literally in the beach, has a really friendly staff, specially Miguel and Alfonso,... More

I have stayed here on a couple of occasions. The room was spotless, the food was good and a friendly staff with a beautiful beach. Doesn't get much better. I found a couple of more places to eat that were really good, one was big mamas, great burritos! Also, tapas bar for great drinks.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of Mahahual. Clean nice rooms. Great patio bar and friendly service. Excellent location if you want to be in the heart of town. Walk right out onto the Main Street with shopping, bars and restraunts. .We stayed one night here before moving to our quiet home away from it all.
