Freshly painted white and even had a conch for the tap in the bathroom. Definitely use the organic honey shampoo. The setting is perfect the sun beds squashy and luxurious . The staff...

My boyfriend and I just returned from our week at Mawimbi and no matter how hard we tried, we couldn't think of ANYTHING we would change about the place! The owners and the staff have created an absolute paradise in Holbox. Everything--from our beautiful studio bungalow, the food and drinks at the restaurant, the beach, the gorgeous sunsets--exceeded our expectations....

Our stay at Mawimbi was magical from the moment we walked in through the reception-it was really easy to find too being a 2 minute walk from the main square. Incredibly peaceful atmosphere, kind and friendly staff, beautiful clean rooms, great location and stunning beach with comfy sun beds (and the hotel provides beach towels) - what more could you...

We are still reluctant to let the world know about Mawimbi and Isla Holbox - would like to keep the secret to ourselves! The island itself is magical, and Mawimbi is the perfect place to experience all it has to offer. Pristine beach, spotless quaint rooms, excellent food and service at Barquito - perfection. Onny and Carmelo have created a...

This is one of the best places I have stayed in all my travel around Australia and the world. The ocean view room overlooking paradise is heaven! Words cannot explain the view of the ocean, palm trees, and hammocks as you look out your back door. The reception staff are beyond helpful, friendly and welcoming. You feel like family immediately....

Perfect size of hotel if you're looking for some...

We just returned from our stay at Hotel Mawimbi almost a week ago and I am already dreaming of going back. Our room was Mawibini and we couldn't have been happier with it. The room was the perfect size and it was clear every detail was carefully put together. Everything about our stay was intimate and relaxing. The entire staff...

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 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....
