The Hotel Mawimbi was really one of the greatest places that I have ever stayed. I say this mainly because of the staff. They were so helpful. I ran into a snafu and forgot my passport in a safe at another hotel in Playa del Carmen. I did not realize this until I arrived. Mawimbi set up a transport to... More

I have been very lucky to have been able to travel a good bit in my life and have made it to the Caribbean/Mexico on many occasions. Isla Holbox was without a doubt the best vacation of my life and Hotel Mawimbi made it more special than we could have ever imagined! Absolutely beautiful accommodations and the most friendly staff... More

As experienced world travelers, particularly to tropical destinations, I will admit we have high standards. Mawimbi was basically perfection. The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated, and well air conditioned. The beach was gorgeous, as well as the food at the beachfront restaurant at Mawimbi. The staff were also extremely friendly and helpful. Overall, such an amazing experience! We are already... More

My husband and I just returned from a week-long stay at Hotel Mawimbi. As the countless other 5-star reviews already tell you, this is the best hotel on the island. The staff is so friendly, communicative, and you can tell that they genuinely enjoy working there. We had a second-floor room with a balcony, and it was clean and comfortable.... More

My friend and I upgraded to stay here after spending 2 nights in a hostel. We were overjoyed! The place was amazing, with views of the ocean from the balcony (which had a hammock and comfy seats), a great bathroom and shower, king sized bed, nice restaurant with breakfast included, and right on the beach. Also, it was 2 steps... More

I really don't want to write this review as I want to keep this place a secret. It is the best place to stay on Isla Holbox without being a big upmarket resort. Who needs a pool when you have the ocean at your door step. Very comfortable rooms and beds. The whole resort is so well decorated and looked... More

Loved our stay at Mawimbi. The hotel is very cutely decorated. The room we had was partial ocean view and was kind of a strange shape as the 2nd floor rooms in the main building are arranged in a circle, so narrower in the doorway and widest at the windows. The best part of the room was the private balcony... More

I first discovered Holbox several years ago during my internet travel research and tucked it away in my mental "save it for the future" file. My wife and I try at least once a year to find that ideal mixture (at least for us) of a somewhat undiscovered place with authentic culture, great food, just enough interesting things to do... More

My husband and I booked our trip to Holbox to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. It was everything we dreamed it would be...quiet, quaint, comfortable, friendly, and incredibly beautiful. My husband even made surprise arrangements to review our wedding vows and the wonderful staff accommodated. If you're concerned about the drive from the airport and ferry ride to the island,...

My husband and I stayed here for a week in the oceanfront room. We had a great time here! The staff is wonderful, the hotel grounds are beautiful. The location is perfectly situated on a beautiful stretch of the beach and a very short walk to town. Highly recommend for anyone who travels to Holbox!
