We stayed at El Hotelito for a week, from Christmas to new year's 2014. We liked the hotel very much (room 8 at the top was fabulous!), the location was great, and the people were the BEST. Chiara (hotel mgr) made our visit. She gave great advice to us scuba divers, and helped arrange our diving with different companies for... More

We came to Mahahual on a friend suggestion with no expectations and we found paradise. This hotel is situated only a few walking minutes from all the local action (not much which is the great thing about this town) and the best beaches, but still conserves the quite and relaxed atmosphere that you want to find in the Caribbean Mexico....

We went to the hotelito for 2 nights the 15-16 of dicember 2014. The lady there (Clara) upgraded our room without charge because it was stull low season. Staff is helpfull and nice. Continental breakfast has cereal, toasts, coffee and juice. The hotel offers a 10% rebate on some restaurantes nearby.

We went here to enjoy the beautiful beach of mahahual. The owners are super friendly and helped us with everything! The breakfast could've been a bit better, but the rooms are clean and perfect! Great night of sleep too since it's silent, you will enjoy the sound of wind and waves.

I really enjoyed the atomosphere that El Hotelito presented. As soon as I walked into the hotel I felt comfortable by the friendly staff that greeted me . The hotel was very clean and I would say it's the best place to stay in all of Mahahaul!!!!!

I love Mahahual and this is the place to stay. The staff is super friendly and competent, the rooms clean and big and the atmosphere makes you feel home. Free wifi and close to the beach! I will definitely go back there again.

The hotel is a bit far away from the bus terminal arrival and does not face the sea. Despite these things, the size of rooms, the hygiene level and the personnel offset the drawbacks and assure an excellent stay. The owner, "Matteo", is Italian: he's extremely friendly and will provide many advice about how to make the most of your... More

It is located maybe 500ft from the area where you want to be most of the time when you are visiting Mahahual. It does not have its own beach club, but has an alliance with hotel El Fuerte and you can lounge in their facilities all day. Overall it is very good value for your money, but then again you...

This is an excellent hotel. It is clean, comfortable, quiet and functional. Unlike some places in the region, everything advertised is in-place and works. Wifi, cable, A/C, hot water, etc, etc. The staff is very friendly, helpful and competent. Great location right on the promenade. Very reasonable pricing. Enjoy.
