As was in the past, was again in February 2015, the accommodations, the food, the staff, the management of this fine establishment surpassed all other accommodations we experienced on the Mayan Coast. We continue to experiment with short stays in other areas, but always end up back in Mahahual at the Nacional Beach Club & Bungalows. We brought our son,... More

Went last August. Going back soon! Evan was a great host. He found time to be sure my stay was just as I had hoped. A perfect mix of leave me alone and help me find my way in Mahahual.Morning coffee looking out at the surf breaking on the Meso American Reef; 2 largest in the world was idyllic.

We went there for some drinks at lunch, but stayed there the whole evening. The staff is really nice and the food is great. The beach in front of the Restaurant is nice and they just have a few umbrellas, so you never feel that is really crowded. It's also in the middle of the malecon, so everything is close... More

We rented one of the beach front bungalows (Aqua) and it was just amazing. The room was immaculate with a lovely bathroom and a private terrace facing the sea. The beach (club) is also amazing, very clean and few people. Employees were super friendly and food served is excellent. And: they serve the best Margarita (Maracuja) we had in Mexico... More

Had the wonderful opportunity to stay for a few days at Nacional Beach Club and Bungalows. It sits on a beautiful white sandy beach with turquoise blue waters. The owners Evan and Anna were most welcoming. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Will most definitely make arrangements to stay here again. I would also highly recommend Gypsea Divers if...

I had the great fortune (or misfortune) of staying one night with Nacional. I did a day trip from Playa to go diving and choose Nacional as the excellent dive shop on location recommended we do so. What a marvellous surprise. You cannot get more laid back than this. I fell in love with the slow cooked bacon on the... More
