Stayed here for three nights and did 2 days of whale shark snorkeling. We loved all of it and highly recommend Mawimbi ;-) The rooms are gorgeous and the beach is just amazing.

This is the BEST vacation I have EVER been on. Hotel Mawimbi took care of everything. I highly recommend booking the transport and whale shark tour directly with the hotel.

We were SO glad we chose Mawimbi. Everyone was accommodating and warm, from the owners, Onny & Carmelo, to Jeevyl in the office, to Randy & Francisco, the barkeep/waiters. (Francisco may also be called Pancho or Paco; he seems to change it every day with a sly smile on his face.) ;D We asked to change rooms the 1st day,...

The Hotel Mawimbi is a lovely hotel right on the beach on Isla Holbox. Our room was small but perfect for us, every little detail thought out carefully. We had a balcony with table and chairs and two hammocks -- even on a hot day, a breeze kept the balcony comfortable and air conditioning and/or a ceiling fan kept the...

Everything you read on the other reports are true. This is a beautiful, small hotel/cabana which is family owned and right on the beach. Many of the other places have a sand road between them and the ocean meaning the golf buggy "taxi's" pass by. The road runs behind the Mawimbi. All the rooms we saw were beautiful, you dont...

The golf cart taxi orginally took me to a hole in the wall (literally) motel. After walking around the town I asked people where I should stay. Mawimbi was highly recommended and I can see why. The price was reasonable I paid $60.00 and the service was friendly. The room was clean as were the linens. Water to drink was...

We stayed here for 5 nights a couple of weeks ago and didn't want to leave. Holbox island is absolutely beautiful and Hotel Mawimbi is perfectly placed right on the beach. The room was great with a lovely little balcony and hammock overlooking the beach and had everything we needed whilst still keeping a nice relaxed Mexican beach style. All...

We loved Mawimbi. We stayed for 3 nights and found it to be a great place to stay. The beach is secluded yet within easy walking distance to the main part of town.
