This hotel was short walking distance to the restaurants and beach. The restaurants are very good…especially taken in consideration of the small town. This hotel has large rooms but is very dated. It has typical rustic decor and construction. I found it to be slightly uncomfortable. It was clean but did not feel like it due to its age and...

For me is the best place in Mahahual, with a great decoration, every room is different and magic, a few steps from the sea, the administrator of Matan Ka'an is at the same time Chef, he is a really nice guy and always worries that everything goes well. You will find a nice life quote the first time you enter...

Nice Hotel. Very spacious and clean room. I would not recommend the pool, but the wonderful beach is just 50m aways! no breakfast included and mostly only Spanish speaking personal - but we got around anyway :) Would stay at Kooy Matan Ka'an again!

We spend a great time @ this little, familiar, artistic, clean hotel. The rooms are decorated in combination to the name. The showers are huge. The mermelade is homemade & delicious. The pool is clean & refreshing, since it's most of the day in the shadow. The personal & the manager are nice, helpful & gives you the feeling of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
