Our second time in Holbox but first time at the Mawimbi. Hotel staff fantastic. Very friendly and always a smile for you. Good breakfast with fresh fruit every day. Cooked food extra if you fancied something a bit different. Great spot on the beach with comfortable sunbeds and a nice stroll into town. The room we had was fairly basic,...

My husband and I stayed at Mawimbi for 11 nights in January with our 2 adult children joining us for the last 7 nights. I can't say enough about how beautiful and relaxing this small hotel is. We had "Shell" room which is right on the beach and has a lovely patio for 2 looking out at the beautiful sea!...

We had a wonderful stay at Mawimbi, my boyfriend and I stayed in the Flamingo room, it was comfortable and clean. The staff at the hotel are very warm, welcoming and helpful. With so few rooms, it feels quiet and tranquil it never felt crowded or busy and the garden/restaurant area on the beach is a relaxing place to enjoy....

Stayed 10 nights, but wished we could have stayed longer. The staff was excellent, all of them! The restaurant guys were great and the women that worked at the front office made us feel right at home. The rooms we stayed in were both great. One was beachfront and one was on the top floor (2nd). This was like Cancun...

We stayed at Posada Mawimbi for 2 days only. The place is located in a luscious, tropical garden. The room was on the somewhat smaller side than we were accustomed to. We stayed in the seahorse room. Which is facing the street and this does come with the noise from the street. Too bad we we were not assigned to...

Just got back from an amazing New Year's Vacation on Holbox and stayed at the lovely Hotel Mawimbi. I seriously cannot recommend this hotel more highly- from start to finish the staff there took care of everything. Seamless pickup from the airport in Cancun to the ferry in Chiquila to the taxi in Holbox, everything was incredibly smooth. We arrived...

We spent four nights of our honeymoon at Mawimbi and couldn't have asked for anything more. Booking was seamless; Jeevyl and all of the front desk staff were so helpful and prompt in answering questions we had. We were glad to have the airport transfer arranged as we arrived in the afternoon and wouldn't have enjoyed navigating our way to...

My boyfriend and I ended up having to cancel our reservation due to unforeseen circumstances but we're so impressed with the prompt handling of the cancellation and refunding of deposit. Thank you in particular to Jeevyl! We will be planning to visit in 2018, and will def be giving our business to this hotel!

And it truly is! We spent 12 magical days at Mawimbi, and every day was special in its own wonderful way. Upon arriving for check-in, we were early, however, Suly (front desk) tucked our luggage in a safe spot in the office and directed us to the bar where a “Welcome” cocktail of our choice could be had. As we...

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and doing more research on the side, my wife and I decided to spend a week at Mawimbi. We had a wonderful time in this spectacular little hotel on the beach. We arrived using the shuttle service arranged through Mawimbi and this is the best way to get here. Our drivers were very friendly...
