We spent three days in Mawimbi hotel during summer 2012. Everything was perfect: food, room and general attention by their Italian owners. All their staff were always kind and helpful. We did feel at home every minute.

Holbox was our first destination at the start of our Yucatan holiday. We just had 3 nights there before moving on, and wish that it could have been longer. Posada Mawimbi was the perfect place to wind down after all those pre-holiday preparations and a long trans-Atlantic flight. Following many helpful emails from Claudia and Jeevyl, we decided that we...

Beautiful hotel, beautiful island. Beautiful beach. I loved staying here & we had 7 easy nights to unwind & bask ourselves in this sun drenched island. My favorite thing about Mawimbi was the palm trees, cleanliness & deep rested sleeps...one cool thing was seeing the owner bring in his catch, sword fish by spear & free dive - doesn't get...

We stayed at the Mawimbi for about 10 days in April 2013. It is perfect, and the attention to detail is everywhere. The owners Onnie and Carmelo, and the staff (Jeevyl and Claudia in the reception and the waiters and gardners) obviously enjoy what they do and they seem to be genuinely interested in ensuring that their guests enjoy themselves....

Great place to spend time doing nothing but relaxing for a few days. Located right on the white sand beach. Lots of hammocks to lounge around. Staff were very nice and helpful. Felt like I was staying in a tree house, decorated with shells and Mexican textiles. Would recommend to families and friends that like a place that likes to...

Excellent 11 room hotel located right on the beach within walking distance to all restaurants, bars and main square. The hotel on its own is great, and what makes it stand above the rest is the location and the friendly and helpful staff.

Just returned from our first trip to Holbox and it was amazing. The island is beautiful and Mawimbi is the perfect hotel. We spent six nights in an ocean view room which was ideal.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Hotel Mawimbi. It was a last minute decision so we are not able to get a beach front room and, in fact, I think we were lucky they had a vacancy. Our room was opposite the reception area and the only problem with this was out dog, who was with...
