My husband and I spent two weeks in Barby's house in Mahahaul. The house was in the section of Mahahual that was home to the local people of the area. We liked this as we were recognized by the local restaurant employes and local store owners where we shopped for our food. The house was fine for two people. The bedroom was air conditioned and there was plenty of hot water for the shower. The house was in easy walking distance to the beach area. There is also a wooded/shaded walk area between the main road in town which leads to the dock where the cruise ships arrive. This took about 40 minutes to walk round trip and made for a nice daily walk. The price was good and there was a contact person close by to handle any situation that might arise. We enjoyed our stay in Mahahaul.
