Stop here for lunch and enjoy the free beach chairs and a gorgeous slice of beach! We had the garlic shrimp plate and $5 margaritas. It's a bit further out from the busier area which makes for a quieter experience. A perfect day!

Great Restaurant. Delicious food! Prices are higher than in other restaurants but defenetly worth it. A great choice of cocktails and fish of the day. The size of the food is big so fine for one person.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but ate 3 meals here. Service was excellent, if a little slow, but that's Mahahual; pretty laid back. The breakfast is very good, and one of the few places open fairly early. If you order nachos for lunch, make sure they give you the Oaxaca cheese, not the canned nacho sauce.

We only ate here. Coffee is fantastic, breakfast is of good portions and tasty. The platter of fruit with yogurt was delicious and the eggs with chaya fantastic. Internet is really fast here and I was able to do all my work even when it rained. Staff is really attentive and we came back for more the next day.

This is a difficult hotel for me to rate, and if the system allowed it I would probably give it three and a half stars. The good: staff, clean rooms, air conditioned, reasonable price, right on the beach. The bad: small room, hard mattress, weak wifi, no phone in room, no fridge, no microwave. Basic as it gets. Bottom line:... More

We stopped at La Posada de los 40 Canones for a day and were very pleased with it- a lovely location on a white sand beach, very nice and helpful staff, good food and cold drink. We took advantage of an all-inclusive offer of $45 for beach chair with umbrella, lunch, and unlimited drinks - and all were great. I... More

Stayed at Apartment 9 with a group of 8, great place to stay for large groups! Nice view of the ocean and the rooms were clean, also had air conditioning which was a plus. The downside is that there is no elevator and you need to go up several flights of stairs, also the apartments are not in the same... More

Our family of 5 (kids 15,13,9) spent six days / five nights at 40 canones and it was awesome! The place is peaceful, quiet, and we enjoyed the beautiful beach everyday from sunrise to sunset. Excellent food was provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The service at the beach palapa was outstanding, and we also enjoyed a few water activities:... More

I stayed at 40 Canones for a friend's wedding. The hotel is located on a beautiful strip of beach. The rooms are nice with good air conditioning. The food tastes good and the pina coladas were great. The staff are very friendly, accommodating and made our trip very enjoyable. I highly recommend staying there if you go to Mahahual.
