We had never been to Mahahual before and were not quite sure what to expect. We were not disappointed in our hotel choice! I do admit we did have alittle trouble finding the place, but no problems after that. The owner, Tina Sanchez, is a treat. She speaks English and gave us lots of recommendations for our visit.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful week in Mahahual, Mexico at El Caballo Blanco. The manager, Tina, is incredibly friendly, competent, and speaks English fluently. Our terrace room was very large with two comfortable double beds, a mini fridge, coffee maker, and huge walk in shower. The hotel reminds one of Old Mexico with beautiful dark wood furniture and...

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!

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.
