XIXIM: a different alternative. Consciousness, love for intact nature, rediscovering yourself, high quality and the simplicity of our services are the secrets that we generously share in our paradise...Hotel XIXIM is an ecological paradise. Bordered by an unspoiled beach that stretches forever, a dwarf palm plantation and an abundance of indigenous vegetation, the environment here has always taken precedent over profit, in this very special, luxuriously rustic hotel. At present, we have 32 thatched cabanas, 24 junior suites with 2 four-poster double beds and 8 master suites with a king size bed, each with its own private verandah and en-suite bathroom. An extremely large thatched, double-story rondavel with sweeping views of the beach, golden sunsets and our pool area. Upstairs one will find El Santuario, our fully stocked bar and lounge area, and downstairs, our pride and joy, Restaurant Zaxim. The buildings dramatic thatched roof with the longest, straightest tree trunk supports, graphically canopy your occasion.Our Wellness Center as a set of architectural human and natural elements: palapas and mangroves, buildings and coastal dunes, windows overlooking the emerald-green sea, open spaces yet of intimate dimensions, each and every one of them integrated to the pristine nature.

Stayed at Xixim for a few days in March just before the Covid crisis hit the fan, and the memory of it has only improved with time. The location is fabulous, on a huge beach all to itself, and delightfully peaceful – there are giant (totally unthreatening) iguanas all over the place, and it's great for seeing birds. Our suite was lovely, very comfortable and spacious, with a terrace with choice of loungers or hammocks to watch the stars every night. Staff were very charming, friendly and helpful, and the food an enjoyable mix of Yucatán traditional and more international ideas, with plenty for vegetarians. OK the wifi is sometimes wobbly but in this location you can't have everything (not long ago you wouldn't even have had a phone line in a place like this). After months in lockdown we really miss it....

Very friendly staff. The new manager does a great job! He brings in great ideas to make your trip an unforgettable experience. We had a great Mayan ritual with fire at sunset. Kids saw dolphins, snake, raccoons ... We hope we can come back!!!

Very very expense for the quality of the services. No internet in all the hotel during more than 3 days. No hot water during one night. For an hotel which charge these kinds of price ...the services have to be good. Restaurant expensive. Swimming pool not very clean. We prefer going to the beach. In France it’s a one star hotel at best. One night to visit the Reserve is sufficient.

Dear 960sebs: Thank you for having taken your time to point us out your discomfort that gives us the opportunity to amend them in Xixim, Unique Mayan Hotel. Your perception is accurate and indeed, right now, we are not a 5 star hotel. We had some of a turmoil in Xixim and we had to renew all of our staff as they were acting against the company policies. This task has not been easy, as you can imagine, and we just had it done, when the pandemic news hit us and we had to close our hotel since march 20th. Our new staff has been sent home. We hope they will return when all of this finishes. Also, our plan of a mayor refurbishing had to be postponed. Meanwhile I hope you, your family and surroundings are well off and healthy. Kind regards, Verena Gerber Owner

We did not enjoy our stay - we do not recommend this hotel! - service is ok: they do their job at a minimum effort. They are always right and do not try to pamper/understand the client. There is not enough service, and it gives you and abandoned feeling. - food is just ok - rooms are dirty and everything is old, they need maintenance, a lot! - it’s cozy-warm hotel - no room service - over priced, you don’t get the minimum of what you expect 👎🏼

Dear Carolina C: I deeply regret that your experience at Xixim, Unique Mayan Hotel, was so unpleasant. You are right that the facilities need maintenance. This was already scheduled to take place before the summer holidays, but we have been caught by surprise by this health contingency and the hotel has been closed since March 20, 2020. You are also right that we were understaffed, but finding for Xixim trained staff is not an easy task. Anyway, excuse us. I hope that you, your family members and everything around you are in good spirits and healthy. Best regards, Verena Gerber
