We had a wonderful time at our stay at Hotel Xixim. The hotel staff was so nice and welcoming, Juan Carlos and Alonzo especially. The only thing I would advise is to bring bug spray as my fiancé came home with 20+ bug bites.

Dear RachKat1020, In my name and in the name of all our staff, thank you so much for such a wonderful review. Yes, we do have some mosquitos in the Nature Reserve, but very few at this time of year. Mosquitos are usually concentrated in the early morning at sunrise and at dusk and not an issue for most of... More

Fantastic location for nature lovers. Bungalows right next to a wild beach, birds paradise...you need to drive 10km from Celestun, the closest city (95 kms from Merida) to get there (takes a while as the road is in bad shape). Good to know: no internet network/no TV, bring your anti-mosquitos, and "funny" (karaoke remix?!) ambiance music at the restaurant.....but I... More

Lovely cabanas, very well equipped, on its own deserted beach miles from anywhere. It is approached on a 10k dirt road but well worth the journey. We had heard about the unfortunate thefts and took extra care with our things. Great for long beach walks and swimming. Restaurant very good with very well presented food. Chef particularly attentive and present... More

Dear Andy Topley, What a beautiful precise and fabulous review, dear Andy! Thank you very, very much. It is good that you took precautions with valuables. It is such a pity and it hurts deeply when this happens in Xixim. Unfortunately it does not happen just in Mexico… I have been fortunate to travel a lot and one must be... More

VERY UNSATISFIED We stayed at this resort for my wife's birthday. As we had a pet with us, we declined cleaning services, also as we were only staying two nights didn't see the need. On the second evening, during a 20 minute walk around the grounds we returned to find over $2500 of items missing. Yet, no signs of a... More

Upon checking in, we were not told that there's an access window in our room that any average size person can crawl through. We left the room for 20-30 minutes to walk our dog. During that time, my phone was stolen (off the charger), my husband's sunglasses, my wallet (from inside my suitcase) and a couple of other items. I... More

The place was great. Special Magic location, staff extremely well trained and friendly. The swimming pool was ice cold and no heating system during the winter season and they did not warn us about this which was a great disappointment. On the other hand very good food and quality of dinning, amazing virgin beach, magical retirement and a great place... More

Dear Alejandro, Thank you for having taken your time to write such a nice, kind and enjoyable review. You are totally right, the water in our swimming pools is very cold. About 5 years ago we made a mayor investment to heat the water with solar panels. We spent around USD $30,000.00 in about 25 solar panels. This system worked... More

We adored relaxing at Xixim, it is peacefully secluded from any outside influences - just a totally natural environment with lots of space to enjoy within the hotel's Eco resort. We loved the Master suite which we found to be worth the extra cost. The suite was so gorgeous we didn't want to move from the wonderful terrace with views... More

You want to get away from everything, that's the place to go. Quiet, the ocean only for you and nice and respectful environment. You need a car and it's at the end of 10km unpaved road from Celestun village. Highly recommanded for couple.
