Beautiful character and charm. From the moment we walked onto the property it felt special and the sense of warmth and charm never faded. Perfect place for a family and group of friends to spend a few days over Christmas as it felt so familiar and the hosts and all the staff were ao warm and gracious. Everything we were...

My wife and I came here for four days after spending a week in Cancun. If you have never been to Isla Holbox but have been to Isla Mujeres – Holbox is like how Mujeres was 30 years ago….small island community, in which the roads aren’t paved, men fish during the day and sell their catch at their restaurant at...

Recently spent a long weekend at this hotel. It was well kept, peaceful and quiet. The restaurant and bar was a nice place to hang out for lunch or just to relax. The hotel arranging a fishing trip. The fish I caught was later prepared and served to me at dinner. The room was very functional and comfortable. I really...

If only one never had to leave Hotel Mawimbi! 6 nights there left us wanting more, more, more. Mawimbi is elegantly informal, stylishly intimate, incredibly welcoming, and refreshingly simple. Among a number of accommodations on the island in every price range, Mawimbi has a magical character and enchanted feel that made us envy its owners and staff, and think impulsively...

Stayed for 7 nights in a sea view room. On checking into our room we were dissapointed to find that builders were working on the roof and a wall next to our room. This was hardly the peace and quiet we were expecting !.Fortunately, the propierters agreed and did not charge us for one night which seemed fair. Our room,...

My staying there was incredible, the attitude of the people from the hotel was really remarkable. It is no common to see this kind of service, over standing, exceeded my expectation. The location of the hotel is very convenient, walking distance from the down town, you can expend a great dinner close the plaza, there are restaurants to all kind...

Mawimbi was perfect, I read quite a few online reviews before booking, so I was worried I might have too high expectations but it was everything I wanted and more. First of all what impressed me the most is that beyond clean, mawimbi is immaculate. From the rooms to the beach there was never anything out of place. I loved...

Hotel Mawimbi is one of those places that makes the trip memorable. Plenty of places to call your own on the beach or at the Restaraunt/ bar area- in the sun or in the shade, it's possible to spend the days away never wanting to leave. From the ferry dock it's an easy walk through the village to the hotel....
