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

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
