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.

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.
