A bit off the beaten track by road but the Cruise Ships do dock near by. This means prices go up those days and it gets more crowded. However for those who get there by bus or car and stay over a few nights Hotel El Blanco is a lovely place to stay. We had a room at the front...

We loved Caballo Blanco so much that I hate to even write this review...mostly because I want it to remain a small, quaint inn in a sleepy, little Mexican village! It was simply wonderful. Location - a rocks throw from the beach with an amazing view. Rooms - clean and comfortable with hot water. Service - friendly and kind people...

We love this hotel and its owner and staff. They cater to your every need. The location is perfect in the center of town. The rooms are always perfect, along with the views. Roof top pool is a great highlight, especially at night.

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful little beach hotel. Very impressed with the comfortable bed and the water was always hot for showers. Also the quality of everything in the rooms, linnens, even included a bar fridge was a great bonus!

This is by far the best hotel in Mahuhal. The staff (Miguel) was AMAZING. The only thing that stopped me from giving a 5 rating was that our air conditioner in the room was broken both nights. However Miguel worked tirelessly both days to get it fixed and the owner was out of town but very much concerned and invested...

Ok we will see you soon then, It's fixed!!!!I'm sorry about the problem. We take every precaution to never have problems. We have a storage room with extra air conditioners, hot water heaters , you name it, so that never happens. Mainly because we are 3 hours from a store and its difficult to find repair men.

I walked up to this hotel and asked for rooms available, so had no idea. I liked it so much that I extended my stay, and really didn't want to leave.
