Based on Tina's (the owner) recommendation, I had the Chilaquiles and it was mouth watering down to the last cheesy bite. Also, best cafe con leche I've had in a loooong time (its REAL coffee, not that nasty instant stuff which seems to be the default coffee around these parts). Prices are very reasonable compared to the other restaurants on the beach strip, who exploit the cruise people like crazy. Other customers there ordered different fish dishes and lobster (I think tacos) and heard them mmm'ing the whole time. I wish I wasn't so full after the Chilaquiles so I could try some. Apparently its all fresh, caught that day.

I happened upon the restaurant looking for an internet cafe and so glad I stumbled on this place. Met Tina and chatted with her when she wasn't busy with other customers - really sweet lady, down to earth, makes you feel totally at home. The internet was really fast (unlike many other places in Mahahual) and the good vibes encouraged me to hang out for hours. I wish I wasn't leaving the Yucatan, otherwise I would definitely become a regular.

Her rooms are nice from what I saw and the rooftop has an infinity pool and absolutely beautiful views of the the area. 5 minutes up there, basking in the caribbean breeze, is all you need to melt into total relaxation. I hope I can somehow find my way back here one day and actually stay in a room.

Can't recommend this place enough.

Loved this place! Best place to stay in Mahahual Mexico. Tina, owner/operator, was born in NYC and has lived in Mexico for a long time. Wonderful host. Hotel sits about 50 yards from waters edge. Massages right on the beach.

Knowing what Mahahaul has to offer, I wouldn't go anywhere else but El Caballo Blanco. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and spotless....not to mention the water pressure in the showers is nothing like you'll find anywhere else in Mexico!! Tina will make sure your stay is perfect in all ways and she has a wealth of knowledge about the area. The rooftop dipping pool is a nice way to spend a few hours or just relax on her well groomed beach. Don't even think about staying anywhere else!

There are many hotels in town that say they are on the beach but are not, this one is! From your 2nd or 3rd floor room you have a beautiful unobstructed view of the sea and can sit and watch the world go by for hours! The rooms are beautiful, clean and functional by American Standards ;-) The showers of power pumping out hot water, the linens are top notch, TV and cable and even a mini fridge for any leftovers you gather around town. The staff is available 24/7 and serves food and drink whenever you want it! The BBQ wings are the BOMB! Best BBQ in town!

Having been to mahahual on multiple occasions and having stayed in a few different hotels, caballo blanco was by far my favorite. It is the only hotel I will be staying at in the future. It has a gorgeous rooftop with a beautiful view and the owner was very nice and treated everyone who passed through like family!
