Best water pressure and hot water in Mexico so far. The room was clean and simply decorated. Great for people on a budget as there were two singles and a bunk bed in the room. Reasonably priced and very nice hotel staff who were helpful. Just across the road from the beach with easy access to beach clubs just a... More

This hotel Located in Mahahual is a very small but comfortable one. Ciara was very helpful organizing the snorkel tour for us, also she was always looking forward in order to keep visitors happy while staying in Mahahual. The top room is the best with a beautiful view to the beach!

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....
