This was our second time to this hotel. The first time was great but now their service has declined. The rooms need some maintenance nonetheless it was very clean and ac was nice. The curtains can be changed or washed. The beach was wonderful, very private. The ceviche was to die for. The continental breakfast that is included is a... More

Our experience at this hotel was not a good one!!! Aside from the lack of concern shown from hotel staff for issues such as the air conditioner not working and no shower curtain or bath mat to prevent shower water from splashing, or no internet signal we were offered a simple shrug of the shoulders…….. My husband and I were... More

Our third trip to the Costa Maya while staying in Mexico, and our second stay at this hotel. Staff is very friendly and professional and always willing to help you in anyway. Cost of room for low season, is very reasonable. Away from the 'town centre' and the boat people, when cruise ship in town, making this a very quiet... More

Hotel Arenas is maybe a "once upon a time" good hotel and could be a great hotel today if the staff all received an attitude adjustment, and the hotel took more care in maintaining their rooms. This was our second time visiting the beautiful beach in Mahahual and we decided to try one of the "nicer" hotels down the road.... More

The hotel is a bit of a walk into town. We did not find it too far but we are both walkers. As long as you don't mind walking by garbage all the way. Arenas is a newer hotel and has a fridge which you will need. It does not cool off much even at night A good thing when... More

Staying in the Playa del Carmen area for an extended stay, we decided to take our second trip south and visit Mahahual..overnight...2.5 hours south. Day was gorgeous, beaches beautiful but loaded with 'boat people', as you have to remember this is a cruise ship destination. Capable of 5 ships per day, fortunately when we arrived there was only one and... More

We recently stayed at the Hotel Arenas in Mahahual (11/2010) and found it to be a very nice small hotel. The rooms were about 15'x15' plus the bathroom and balcony/deck, ours had a king size bed, with a large wardrobe for hanging clothes and drawer items. The hotel has only about 6 to 8 rooms, so it is a small... More
