I stayed at Mawimbi for three nights around 10th February and I wish I stayed there longer. Mawimbi features the best location in Holbox: a quiet area just a few minutes walk from the village with its restaurant and shops; the best stretch of beach in the area (with highest concentration of palm trees), always kept immaculate.
The hotels is run by lovely Ornella (his housband was away when I stayed there) and her very friendly and helpful team, they made me feel very welcome since the first moment I arrived.
The hotel is furnished with taste and attention to detail. I stayed in the "habitacion pulpo" (room octopus), which maybe could have been a bit bigger but felt perfectly fine for a short stay, if I went back I would probably choose a bigger one with kitchenette.
Breakfast was very good and reasonably priced, drinks were very good and even if slightly more expensive than in other places was worth enjoying the lovely beach bar.
I can only recommend Mawimbi as guarantees a perfect combination of friendly and efficient service with stylish decor and top beach location.
ENJOY IT! Maurizio
