Hotel is clean, the rooms are spacious on the third floor. No view of the ocean from most of the rooms which is a negative aspect of the hotel. No pool unfortunately , which is something I appreciate after being on the beach. Service is decent and staff are friendly. Its a place to go if your expectations are low... More

One of my favourite places in Costa maya! Extremely helpful staff who speak good English, delicious food, beautiful beach, clean ..... What more can I ask for? When you go and eat there you get to use sun beds for free. The shrimps are especially good. A must in Costa maya!!

Nice place, neat, clean, well groomed, beautiful beach; the food at restaurant was good; the rooms are small but nice; wifi was poor! We spend 2 nights. Nice little town and very safe. Club de playa very nice, servers take drinks to the beach. The hotel is cozy and the servers were well disposed.

The family at 40 canones made us very welcome. Very pretty open air restaurant and bar. Beautiful beach in a very laid back resort. We stayed in the apartments and they are spacious and comfortable. The staff are all lovely and nothing is too much trouble from a strawberry daiquiri to organising a day trip to take in some sights.... More

This beach was breathtaking! The service and the food were amazing!! Such a beautiful hotel and I would go there to stay any time! The guacamole was hands down the best we have ever tasted! This was truly one of those places you dream of whenever you want to go to a beautiful beach. Absolutely a gorgeous place for a... More

The hotel is located at the beachfront. It has a private beach with free access and towels are provided. However the rooms (called superior rooms) without the sea view are average: dark, small and lacking a place to sit. The bathroom is very small and unattractive. The staff was nice. Overall this is a convenient and clean place to stay.

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
