Most of you might have never heard of this secluded island in Mexico. Neither did I until a month ago. It’s small town within a Nature Reserve called Yum Balam and the home of colorful house walls turn into magical pieces of art, 7 to 12 meter whale sharks, streets covered in the softest white sand, clear blue waters, an...

Small 11 room hotel is everything we went to Holbox for. The room was small but very, very cute. The owner & staff could not be beat, all very nice. Took the hotel's boat on a whale shark tour and it was the best boat on the Island. Food at the tiny beach restaurant was excellent. Looks like only 1... More

Right on the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Jeevyl takes care of anything you need. I already booked for next year since I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Wake up to cafe con leche on the beach with homemade jam every day. Super fast boat to the whale sharks and Leo and Arturo were great!

We were very pleased with our stay at Mawimbi. The owners made the perfect decision to buy and build on this location. It sits on the very best section of beach with beautiful sand, great depth for added privacy during the day, only the one boat tied up out front, plenty of space and natural shade. Our room was exactly... More

We treasured every moment of our 8 day vacation at Hotel Mawimbi! The accomodations are impressive, comfortable and very, very clean! The staff is so friendly, yet not overbearing. Every meal we had was wonderful and the drinks are good too. We recommend the no-sugar-added mango margaritas. We enjoy exploriing different vacation spots and don't often plan on returning, but...

I had read as much as I could before our trip about the town and hotel. It was much more beautiful than I had imagined. I love the ocean and beach, and the color of the water here is like no other. We loved the town. Renting a golf cart was so much fun! We stayed in the large two... More

We decided on this hotel because of its proximity to the water and the Trip Advisor 2015 winner rating. It is all true. Beautiful, peaceful, clean and oh so natural. Every room has its individual charm and native decor. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Owners live on the grounds and it's clear to see that Mawimbi is their home!

I had a group staying in different hotels and Mawimbi was one of them. The staff, food and hotel was very nice. Thank you to everyone that made this trip such a wonderful experience! I cant wait to go back and celebrate another birthday at this beautiful island. Thank you to Jeev and her team for all their support!

We booked Mawimbi after reading Tripadvisor reveiews. We were glad we did. We stayed 10 nights and our main reason for staying there was to swim with the whale sharks. Just before we arrived there was a storm so on arrival a lot of the sandy roads were flooded. Unfortunately the storm meant that the whale shark sightings weren’t as... More

This year we returned to Holbox and stayed at Mawimbi. It was another wonderful Time. We stayed for 9 days this time. A tropical disturbance (that after became Tropical Storm Bill) forced us to stay in the hotel for about 2 days. We saw how much maintenance goes on on a place that looks so natural that doesn't seem to... More
