The manager, Alicia, and her family are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They truly make you feel like family from the moment you arrive. The hotel is a wonderful boutique hotel with many artisan touches and a very nice pool. The food in the restaurant is excellent and they have the best cafe americano that we found in Mahahual! The hotel is quiet at night. Get a glass of wine from the restaurant (Alicia introduced us to a delicious red) and make your way to the sitting area on the second floor, where you can enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

Room Tip: The rooms on the upper floors are nicer.

I visited Majahual with my girlfriend in November and it was really nice and quiet with no cruises docking those days.

The room was good value for money, clean and spacious. the only small thing was that their TV's are so small you can't see anything from the beds, not that we care about it.

The hotel is very close to the beach but you have to consume in rather poor and overpriced restaurants located along the "Malecon" If you want to avoid being harassed by people trying to get you inside their restos, you definitely can use Matan Kaan's beach club located a 10-minute walk away at their other hotel Quinto sole, where the restaurant is really good and the area is more quiet and private

This hotel looks like it was designed in the 70's by flower children. It has a funky layout and doesn't flow directly from room to room. Kind of a pain to navigate when you have rooms on different levels/sections. All-in-all the rooms where comfortable and clean. We had AC in all three of our rooms. The hotel management was recently taken over by a management company from Spain and they didn't quite have the restaurant up to par. There were a dozen bottles of alcohol on the shelf but we were told it was old and could not be served. New liquor had not been purchased in the 2 weeks the restaurant had been open. Odd and a little of a letdown, however they did have about 4 cold beers. Thats right, 4. The others were warm because the beer cooler wasn't working... would I stay again? Yes but lets hope they have the restaurant stocked.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the ground floor, one of the fountains is now a fish pond and a mosquito breeding...
