We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Hotel Mawimbi. It was a last minute decision so we are not able to get a beach front room and, in fact, I think we were lucky they had a vacancy. Our room was opposite the reception area and the only problem with this was out dog, who was with us barked when anyone passed the door - not really a problem as we did not spend much time in the room. The room was nicely decorated and everything was spotlessly clean. We didn't use the little kitchen as we ate out. The food in the hotel restaurant was very good. We ate breakfast there every day and found the fruit, coffee, toast and juice more than enough. We had lunch once and dinner once and everything was very good and reasonably priced.
The best restaurant in town was La Parilla de Juan, well worth the climb up the stairs.
The only thing we have to complain about was the weather. The temperature was in the low 20sC and the wind was very strong with a lot of seaweed on the beach (not at the hotel but further down). This meant we spent a lot of time sitting in the restaurant behind glass rather than on the beach. The staff and owners were all very helpful and friendly. Hopefully our next visit the weather will be better,
