Right on the beach at Mahahual with an incredible view, beautiful sea for swimming, and a virtually 24-hour 7-12km/ hour breeze to keep you comfortable even when temps are 30+ C (85 F) -- at least in February. The hotel is small -- no more than 7-8 rooms of which four are seafront. All seaward rooms have a balcony --...

Our second stay. Very nice. Clean quiet and peaceful. Everyone we met was so nice. The bed was extremely comfortable. Enjoyed the evening on the room balcony. The town was small and an enjoyable walk. Great food. We had pizza at Dino's. It was thin and crispy. Really good. Also had an excellent breakfast there at the hotel. Would definitely...

We stayed here Feb.6- Feb.20. This hotel was perfect. It has magnificent views, especially from the rooftop pool. Watched the sunrises while drinking my coffee from our patio. The staff keeps the hotel very clean and shipshape. Tina (the owner) always made us feel at home and any advice we needed was always spot-on. All in all, it was one...

If you want someplace to get away from it all in southeast Quintana Roo the Hotel Caballo Blanco is an excellent choice. Overlooking a reef protected beach the natural beauty of the coast can be seen for miles in each direction. The local seafood ,including whole fish estillo maya and Mexican lobster with all the side dishes and condiments of...

My husband and I loved our stay here and would definitely return. The room with the balcony was divine. Watched every single sunrise. Loved the rooftop view. Pool is tiny but still loved it up there! We thought the location was perfect...perfectly situated in the middle of the beach boardwalk and the hotel's beach was lovely and perfect for swimming...

This is the fourth time I've been to Mahahual, and the fourth time that I don't want to leave at the end! Tina again made sure that everything was perfect for our stay, although this time I was healthy the whole trip and didn't require anything from her onsite pharmacy :) The rooms are always clean and well kept, with...

A bit off the beaten track by road but the Cruise Ships do dock near by. This means prices go up those days and it gets more crowded. However for those who get there by bus or car and stay over a few nights Hotel El Blanco is a lovely place to stay. We had a room at the front...

We loved Caballo Blanco so much that I hate to even write this review...mostly because I want it to remain a small, quaint inn in a sleepy, little Mexican village! It was simply wonderful. Location - a rocks throw from the beach with an amazing view. Rooms - clean and comfortable with hot water. Service - friendly and kind people...
