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

Paradise on earth - We found it! Thanks Onny, Adriana, Jeevyl & the whole Mawimbi team for the awsome stay. Best beach in Yucatan & Quintana Roo. During our trip to several beaches across Yucatan we found nothing comparable. If you after a place for relaxing on one of the most wounderful beaches in the world - Here you go!... More

For background, I can, and have, stayed at Four Seasons, Ritz Carton's, etc., but don't like that over the top, impersonal style. Always looking for the small, quaint, owner run places. Traveled all over the world, to remote and to popular places, from Maldives private beach house to hole in the wall places in South America. Been meaning to go... More

Hotel Mawimbi was like a dream...the perfect location, the perfect beach (best on the strip), fantastic food, small number of rooms which meant no overcrowding, close to town. We stayed in the Tortuga room, and felt that we had the best patio of the whole place. After only one week there, it started to feel like a home sweet home.... More

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
