Our stay here felt like the biggest bait and switch I have ever experienced in any travel capacity. The hotel website describes a wondrous 5 star property among stunning beaches and mangroves. Even TripAdvisor reviews are glowing. However, I urge any traveler to stay away....or at least vastly lower expectations. Planned Stay: 3 Nights in the End of January (only...

Dear Slett110, I am really sorry that you did not like our concept of hotel. This happens and we both cannot do anything about it. I deeply regret it. Indeed, if we have less occupation, we do not open all of our facilities, because this causes more lack of service and attention to our guests. In fact, having the restaurant...

We were surprised by the natural beauty of this wonderful retreat. Food was very good. The grouper and ceviche were wonderful. We went to see the flamingos from town instead of going the the usual starting point. we enjoyed the extra boat ride and the nature along the way.

We just loved this resort. We went not expecting much and were so delighted! It is like a glam Gilligan's Island where you get to live in a palapa, and wash your feet in a little tap that is actually a shell! They have made a great commitment to the environment that i find inspiring, and the little eco friendly...

We have spent four nights in this hotel in a beautiful cabin with a view on the Gulf. It is true that there are many musquitoes in this area but the cabins themselves are perfectly isolated against these monsters and the hotel provides guests with anti repellant that works just fine. Other than that, taking care of one's health is...

This is an amazing hotel, located in the incredibly beautiful setting of the Yucatan Gulf coast, this is the exact opposite of Cancun and the Riviera Maya over-developed properties. It is difficult to go to a more remote location in Yucatan, and while it is only 2 hours from Merida airport, you will feel transported back in time to a...

I was looking to escape from the stresses of life and Xixim was a blessing. Situated 10km from civilization on a virgin beach and within the biosphere, calm serenity awaits.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
XIXIM: a different alternative. Consciousness, love for intact nature, rediscovering yourself, high quality and the simplicity of our services are the secrets that we generously share in our paradise...Hotel XIXIM is an ecological paradise. Bordered by an unspoiled beach that stretches forever, a dwarf palm plantation and an abundance of indigenous vegetation, the environment here has always taken precedent over profit, in this very special, luxuriously rustic hotel. At present, we have 32 thatched cabanas, 24 junior suites with 2 four-poster double beds and 8 master suites with a king size bed, each with its own private verandah and en-suite bathroom. An extremely large thatched, double-story rondavel with sweeping views of the beach, golden sunsets and our pool area. Upstairs one will find El Santuario, our fully stocked bar and lounge area, and downstairs, our pride and joy, Restaurant Zaxim. The buildings dramatic thatched roof with the longest, straightest tree trunk supports, graphically canopy your occasion.Our Wellness Center as a set of architectural human and natural elements: palapas and mangroves, buildings and coastal dunes, windows overlooking the emerald-green sea, open spaces yet of intimate dimensions, each and every one of them integrated to the pristine nature. ... more   less
