Due to covid and personal reasons, my partner and I have had to postpone and change our booking dates multiple times with hotel Mawimbi. From the start, the communication has been amazing and the staff have been so helpful and accommodating. Can’t wait to stay at the hotel!

Hotel's Favourite
We've travelled to Holbox four times now, and our favorite place to stay is Mawimbi! It is lovely and tranquil, under great palm trees on a beautiful stretch of beach. There are things to do on Holbox if you want to, or you can just relax and listen to the waves and swim which seems to be what I always end up doing. The owners and everyone who runs it are so welcoming and helpful with travel arrangements and restaurant reservations, they make everything easy. The food at the restaurant Barquito is delicious! Holbox is best for people who don't want the big party atmosphere of Cancun. In this Covid era, those of you who need Covid shots to return to your home country can have this easily arranged here too. Mawimbi is so nice I almost don't want to tell other people about it!

We stayed in the crab room for one week and had an absolutely amazing time. Mawimbi is THE PLACE to stay in Holbox. All of the buildings, landscaping, and beach area are meticulously taken care of. The amount of beach front they have compared to the number of rooms is amazing. The service we received was superb. The air conditioning and water pressure were excellent. The best thing about Mawimbi is the vibe. You will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. The only con is that our room was small, but we were rarely in there. So leave the big luggage at home. You really only need swimsuits, shorts, and flip flops!

There is only one problem with Hotel Mawimbi. That is that you never want to leave! Our four nights at this beautiful bungalow resort was nothing less than spectacular in every way. Not only is this a magical and upscale setting unique to the island, but every detail felt five star, amidst a rustic backdrop. We spent our morning drinking delicious Italian coffee and eating superb gourmet breakfasts. The rest of the day we found ourselves hopping in between the comfortable daybeds and the perfectly clear ocean water only steps in front of us. We mixed our lunch and dinners between the Mawimbi and a few fun places in town, only five minutes walk from hotel. The restaurant staff is always at your service, delivering delicious island cocktails and scrumptious local (and international) next level cuisine. We felt completely safe and taken care of by the incredible staff and wonderful owners who we now call friends. We stayed in two different rooms, a garden room and an oceanfront room and they were both nothing less than spectacular. Comfortable beds, perfect air-conditioning and fans, trustee safe and all of the amenities you could ever ask for. This is a truly special place. When making your decision to visit Holbox, look no further than this little slice of heaven. We will be back!

Wonderful ocean view room, clean, plentiful amenities. Restaurant food is excellent, full bar with great non-alcoholic options. Hammocks, palapas, swinging bed, beach chairs, and fantastic service. This is THE place to book the whale shark tour. We hope to be lucky enough to return.
