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...

It was clean and with good location. However, my coworkers didn't want to stay because there were dogs all around. The owners of the place are italians and treated local mexicans like their servants. I wouldn't say that this is a sustainable tourism place! Actually, the hotel next door "Casa las tortugas" gave my coworkers a better price and a... More

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

Stayed a week and already booked for next year. Nice location, people all fantastic, tons of chairs and beds so everyone can sit down... not fighting over finding a shady space, dog friendly, my room had HUGE balcony with superb hammock, bed and table and chairs. Nice cafe on site for lunch and included continental breakfast. Rooms on street can... More

A charming small, right on the Beach resort. Family owned and operated. The owners live right on site and the staff seem to have all worked together as a team for several years. Good restaurant on site. Breakfasts were simple and might get a bit boring on a long stay, but included in the price of the room. I noticed... More

We just returned from a 4 day stay at Mawimbi and I cannot sing the praises of this charming resort. We took an arranged transfer by van since this was our first time to Holbox and we were unsure of our Minnesota weather departure schedule. That went without a hitch. When you arrive, don't judge a book by it's cover... More

We had a wonderful stay at Mawimibi las week. I am used to go to Isla Holbox every year in January for a quick getaway, and I always used to go to the same place. But this year, the prices had really increased and we could not afford it anymore. We had booked the room Manati which is a beautiful... More

Just before Christmas my wife and I stayed for a few days in Hotel Mawimbi, together with our son and daughter in law. We discovered true paradise in Holbox… Our room (Turtle) was small, but so nice with a big comfortable bed, a neat bathroom and shower and a huge terrace with a small seat, a hammock and a large...

This hotel is clean, well-run and has beautiful grounds. Anna is especially helpful! And, the hotel has the sweetest little dogs to cheer your stay! The breakfast got a little dreary after the 3rd day (the same items everyday)...But I was thankful to have any offered at all. Our only complaint was potentially out of the hands of the proprietors--the... More
