We spent three nights at Posada Mawimbi at the final part of a two week trip to Mexico (Mexico City, Merida, Tulum and Holbox, in that order). Mawimbi was superb and our favourite accommodation of the trip. The service was excellent, we were impressed by the restaurant (simple food but fresh and the classics were executed well) and the hotel...

From the reception to the beach, and everything in between, Hotel Mawimbi is nothing short of wonderful. The staff is incomparable, the hotel and property are magnificent. The service at the bar/restaurant could not have been better, and the food is fabulous. Nothing but smiling, accommodating faces at this charming, secluded beachfront hotel. Walk in bare feet to the center...

Isla Holbox is a gorgeous paradise still relatively unspoiled by development. No cars, no pavement, and sometimes, no electricity! I loved everything about it. Shells, starfish and manta rays abound, as do the island's many, many dogs. The sand is soft as flour and the best spot on the beach is occupied by Hotel Mawimbi. Charming AF. The staff, particularly...

My boyfriend and I just returned from our week at Mawimbi and no matter how hard we tried, we couldn't think of ANYTHING we would change about the place! The owners and the staff have created an absolute paradise in Holbox. Everything--from our beautiful studio bungalow, the food and drinks at the restaurant, the beach, the gorgeous sunsets--exceeded our expectations....

Our stay at Mawimbi was magical from the moment we walked in through the reception-it was really easy to find too being a 2 minute walk from the main square. Incredibly peaceful atmosphere, kind and friendly staff, beautiful clean rooms, great location and stunning beach with comfy sun beds (and the hotel provides beach towels) - what more could you...

We are still reluctant to let the world know about Mawimbi and Isla Holbox - would like to keep the secret to ourselves! The island itself is magical, and Mawimbi is the perfect place to experience all it has to offer. Pristine beach, spotless quaint rooms, excellent food and service at Barquito - perfection.
