we're just back from several days at this hotel; totally amazing time there! very laid back and comfortable, one of the best vacations i think we've ever had. my wife and i were there with our 14 year old daughter and felt very welcome; all the great parts of feeling "at home" without the not so great parts of "at home". the location is perfect in that it's on the beach, very quiet, and yet a very short walk from the center square where there were lots of things going on; great food, great shopping (cool stuff, not touristy....). the owners and staff are genuinely kind people that really made us feel comfortable. we plan on returning as soon as we can. next trip i think we'll use mawimbi as a base and visit some of the surrounding mayan sites and diving spots; there's a lot to see and do in this part of mexico and we're so looking forward to returning. i would give this place more stars if i could!
