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.

I would like to comment on the POSITIVE points during our visit to Costa Maya/Mahahual beach during our recent cruise ship stop on the NCL Jewel on March 7, 2014. This was our 3rd time to visit. This beach front was one of only few places that took some pride in cleaning up the beach and trying to attract some... More

Noise level in this place is terrible. Hotel right on the beach and looks beautiful. We paid for a superior room which only means wasn,t on ground floor near kitchen and had tv. We are easy going people but this place was horrible, we both got up in the morning and said they are getting reviewed. At night we tried... More

We recently went to Mahahual and booked this hotel online in advance. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were greeted by friendly staff members and then taken to a very nice room (we paid for the superior room which only means that you have a queen size bed instead of 3 beds in your room and your bathroom...

Alfonso and the staff are great. The site is beautiful, food good and service is outstanding. We just happened to find the place accidentally while in shore during a cruise stop but would definitely stay at 40 Canones if not on a cruise. The place is spotless, well managed and well run. Good beach security without being noticeable. Everything I... More

I decided to stay here because of the positive reviews and they were correct and in all aspects. The beach was everything I expected, clean, great beach service, breath taking views, healthier reef than up north and a low keyed atmosphere...just right for going topless.

My wife and I met friend for a couple of days in Feb/14 and stayed at 40 Cannons for 2 nights. We rented a car and drove the highway south from Playa Del Carmen. The highway was a pleasant surprise. 4 lanes divided up to Tulum and then 2 lanes undivided all the rest of the way. The speed limit... More

The hotel, probably the nicest in town, is perfectly located. It's located at the edge of the hotel/restaurant/shop zone on the malecon but within a minute of walking time you are in the middle of everything. Their beach is about 15 steps from the hotel and is perfectly maintained. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. Ours (room 23) was... More

We left the ship Dawn and we scouted for a place to sit and have a margarita. 40 was the one I chose because it was clean and comfortable. I had the best margarita in my life and I tried a lot or different ones. We had the nachos and they were excellent . But I wished I could have... More
