As I write this I am sitting on my balcony gazing upon the beautiful blue water and reef of Mahahual. We have stayed here four times now and let me just say this small hotel is amazing. It is family owned and operated, the property sits on the malaxon and has a beautiful stretch of beach in front with tables,... More

Nice rooms, clean and bright! Love the restaurant! We have eaten here many times, and have consistently had great experiences. Clean kitchen, friendly staff. Good variety of choices and tasty dishes. Personal favorites are the lion fish and pasta dishes. Also fresh homemade hamburgers for a change of pace! Best guacamole in town!

So glad we ended up finding The Caballo Blanco and Tina. After checking 3 or 4 places this one was recommended to us and it was just what we needed. Simple, so very clean and well kept. A few tables out in front with a friendly and personable owner taking care of business, a great spot on the beach and... More

We stopped by the Hotel El Caballo Blanco during our brief time in Costa Maya, which was the first stop during our 7 day cruise. We opted to not do any formal excursions, and instead took a taxi into downtown Mahahual. It was about a 10 minute ride, and SO WORTH IT! It was my first visit to Mexico, and... More

Been to Majahual several times but always stayed "out". This hotel had great beds, hot showers with pressure, was immaculately clean, and its own private beach in the center of town that protected us even during cruise ship crows. What's not to like? Tina the owner went above and beyond helping my wife who arrived not feeling well. Avoid the... More

Had a wonderful two nights at Hotel Caballo Blanco, owned by Tina, a terrific resource for restaurants, tours, massages, and any other needs you might have. Perfect location right on the malecon, with some rooms facing the peaceful ocean setting.

I think my original plan was to stay for 10 days and I ended up staying from Oct 3 - Oct 27! I can't say enough about "my home away from home". The negative reviews are obviously from people who haven't travelled outside of a major metro with a Ritz or other high end CHAIN hotel. If that's what you... More

Please don't think that I've never stayed in a questionable hotel before. I've traveled to many places in Mexico for many years to avoid a questionable hotel room. But my husband booked this hotel, prepaid, based on what he saw online. I usually never suggest a place that I have not investigated through Trip Advisor. So when my husband told... More

I can't help but wonder if in fact you did not enjoy my hotel or the main problem was your husband chose my hotel and you didn't . My hotel is exactly as described on my web page. We are a beach front hotel, so obviously if you were looking for us on a back street you couldn't find us.... More

Just got back from a few days in Mahahual. With no accommodation booked I rolled into town and decided to take my chances on getting a hotel upon arrival. Boy did I luck out. El Caballo Blanco was just perfect for my few days on the Costa Maya. In hindsight I probably picked it for its great location….right on the... More
