First time at Mexico Beach and El Governor is the place to stay!!! The view was just fantastic. The live band on Friday was rocking. We walked the beach that night chasing sand crabs and listening to the band. It was nice having a full kitchen so if I didn't wanna go out, I didn't have to. Drinks at the...

This was our 4th trip to the EL and every time has been great. Their off season rates will keep us coming back and the way they manage a perfectly located beach hotel is the icing on the cake.Keep the town unique and laid back and free of high rises, putt putts, go kart tracks and slimey bars and we'll...

We have been coming to El Governor for about eight years and I must say, every time surpasses the last time. The rooms are always clean, the staff and housekeeping are friendly and helpful. The pool is open year-round and has a lot of seating options. One-stop shopping as they have the best gift shop around. Whether you need drinks,...

This is the perfect beach place. We stayed in the annex, right on the beach, full kitchen , grills out back. The tiki hut is awesome. The only downside, our room needed some upkeep. The shower curtain had some mold on it and the towels were getting thin. However, it won't deter us from staying again. The people are great...

Every room has a beach front view! Nice little balcony and fairly spacious rooms. The kitchenette was a nice bonus. The beautiful strip of white beach just made my day! Restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance made this a great place to stay.

Awesome setup. I stayed in the Annex and loved it. Plenty of different areas to eat outside and grill. Beautiful view of the ocean. Heated pool in winter. Live entertainment on weekends! Really cool gift shop and tiki bar too! Walking distance to Toucans bar and grill as well! Will definitely be back!
