You will never find a more relaxed and wonderful hotel. The staff was super welcoming and went out of their way to accommodate us. We walked out of our room right to the beach. It really doesn't get much better than that. You'll find that Holbox is a very special place and the Hotel Mawimbi is a dream hotel at...

If you are looking to enjoy the true beauty of Holbox, its peace and magic, Mawimbi is the place to stay. Owned by true lovers and protectors of this island, we go now every time to Mawimbi. Great rooms with all comfort, great restaurant with excellent food, friendly and effective service, the best boat for cruising or seeing whale sharks,...

Mawimbi was amazing - I wish we could have stayed longer! We spent 3 nights as a group of friends and loved everything about it. Top reasons: - Absolute beachfront with plenty of sun loungers to choose from (comfortable ones too!) - Great section of the beach with no boats blocking your access to the sea. Some hotels are in...

Hotel Mawimbi could not be more perfect and this is in great part to the care the two owners bestow onto the property. It is someplace that you just want to linger for its beauty. The Whale Shark tour is more expensive than other operators on the island and worth every last cent. The boat is state of the art,...

The hotel is wonderful. It is very peaceful and laid back, just perfect for relaxing. The wait staff all knew our names and the rooms that we were in. We could place an order while we were lounging in a beach chair or beach bed and they would either bring what we ordered to us (drinks) or come and let...

I've wanted to stay at Mawimbi since I first saw the property six years ago. Finally, five friends and I made it down and we can't stop raving about it. The hotel is small - only 10 rooms. We had five rooms in the main building. All were well appointed and comfortable, with large balconies and hammocks. I am used...

The room was tight, but very comfortable and had A/C as well as an excellent patio with hammocks. The beach was very nice, and there were tons of great places to lounge and sit. Walkable to Holbox (duh!), and a nice bar/restaurant.

The place: Outside: not only a peaceful oasis but a real garden, well maintained and next to the water (that’s rare!). No crowding or loud music. Wow! Lots of trees for suitable shade, good quality chairs and beds. By strolling along the beach we found that Hotel Mawimbi was by far the best one of the hotel beaches. Inside: beautiful,...

I had wanted to stay here but it was fully booked when I planned my trip. Once I got on the island and realized I needed to extend my stay to do a whale shark tour due to bad weather, I walked in and asked for availability. I'm very lucky they had a room for 2 nights. I had a...
