Beautiful hotel, on a beautiful beach, excellent service, everyone was very friendly. The food at the barquito bar was very good. The accommodations very comfortable, clean and quiet. We exited the room and were ON the beach. The continental breakfast was very nicely served, delicious fruit, juices and home made marmalade.

This really is a perfect hotel. Nestled amongst the coconut palms it's so tranquil. And it's on a really beautiful part of the beach and just a 3 min walk into town. The restaurant/ bar is pretty and the food is delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are impeccably clean. It really is the most wonderful place... More

What a charming and lovely place to stay!!!! What I love about these types of hotels is that they are built to fit into the beautiful nature that surrounds it. Truly, walking down the beach or even the road in front , you could easily walk right by as it is hidden in the lush flora. The rooms are rustic... More

Mawimbi was amazing! My friend and I happened upon this gem by surfing the backpacker blogs, in search of an experience that was true to Mexico and not so "touristy". What we got was above and beyond what we expected. The vibe was truly peaceful, the food was magnificent and the customer service warm and friendly. I would definitely visit... More

Mawimbi is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in, absolutely everything works perfectly. The room and the sand are always clean, staff knows their business , Mawimbi is dog friendly and location is wonderful.

This family-run hotel exceeded our expectations on all counts. Our rooms, while not large, were exceptionally clean (and their towels are nice and thick!) -- we stayed in "Estrella", which was the larger of the 2 rooms and had a small balcony with a table and 2 hammocks, and our daughter stayed in "Pulpo" which was smaller but had a...

We stayed here between March 13-21 2015. Sometimes when you go back to a place the second time it does not live up to expectations, but not Mawimbi. Just as with our first visit a year ago we had a great time and have booked a room for a visit in 2016. We love the relaxed atmosphere (no big buffets... More

Holbox is a place where you can walk in the sand and after sleep and eat very well in a this good hotel. Everything has a special care. The beach bear the hotel is good for bath. I like most to stay away from the mangrove
