In our second trip to Holbox, we decided to stay in Mawimbi for our honeymoon for 2 nights (July 31st-Aug 2nd). Pro's:It has an awesome location, right on the beach, near the port (in case you're interested in doing the whale sharks trip), 3 minutes away from downtown. All the rooms have air conditioned. The set up on the beach...

We spent a short 4 days at Mawimbi, and loved every minute. The staff are helpful and friendly without being intrusive at all. I have a gluten allergy, so they made sure that we had delicious quesadillas with our fruit for breakfast, instead of toast. We also went on an amazing whale shark tour. The beach is beautiful, but the...

Mawimbi was a much needed get away from the often hard to escape "Cancun" tourism in Yucatan. Despite its remote location, fa I litotes were clean and comfortable. The beach front cafe/bar food was very good. Highly recommend the whale shark tour. At the end of our stay, the bill wAs unbelievable. Far less than we expected for the amount...

My wife and I stayed at Mawimbi last week based upon the reviews on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. The central location on the best beach in the hotel zone made it ideal to walk to everything. The staff and the owners went out of their way to make you feel like you are at home. Holbox is...

Isla Holbox is a very rustic, mellow Mexican community and Hotel Mawimbi keeps it low-key and natural. Beautiful setting, funky but tasteful artisan design. Very good food and drinks. Very quiet, peaceful island...Very calm waters good for kids. Mosquitos on the island are present in am and pm so bring lotion. If you are a big chain hotel type then...

Mawimbi is a quaint, relaxing, delightful hotel. Service and friendliness are amazing. Everyone was gracious and very helpful. We did the whale shark excursion with them (not to be missed!) and got back after checkout. They generously allowed us to use a room to shower and freshen up. We will absolutely go back!

An absolutely wonderful place to stay for relaxing and unwinding. The staff are very friendly and helpful, our room was quite comfortable. We loved the hammock on our balcony and the ones throughout the property. The palm trees on the beach are lovely, although we would have liked a couple of palapas for more shade. It's a very short walk...
