My boyfriend and I ended up having to cancel our reservation due to unforeseen circumstances but we're so impressed with the prompt handling of the cancellation and refunding of deposit. Thank you in particular to Jeevyl! We will be planning to visit in 2018, and will def be giving our business to this hotel!

And it truly is! We spent 12 magical days at Mawimbi, and every day was special in its own wonderful way. Upon arriving for check-in, we were early, however, Suly (front desk) tucked our luggage in a safe spot in the office and directed us to the bar where a “Welcome” cocktail of our choice could be had. As we...

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and doing more research on the side, my wife and I decided to spend a week at Mawimbi. We had a wonderful time in this spectacular little hotel on the beach. We arrived using the shuttle service arranged through Mawimbi and this is the best way to get here. Our drivers were very friendly...

This place is perfect located, has wonderful rooms, a perfect beach part and nice staff. In fact there are just approx. 10 rooms it feels not staying at a hotel. Everything is very familiar. A perfect...

I fell in love with this little place! The 11 rooms are named, not numbered. The staff are so friendly and efficient! They greeted us by our names. Ornella the owner is a jewel! I dined with my toes in the sand. Fresh fruit with toast included in our rate. Wifi spotty and no connection in my room. Comfy king...

Stayed at Mawimbi the end of October for 7 nights. So glad we chose this property! Had the most beautiful beach of all of the beach areas we saw. The lounge chairs are super comfy and we spent many hours relaxing on the beach. The staff is wonderful and the food and drinks very good. Our room was quite small...

The owners are an Italian couple who live on site, so the hotel is well maintained and perfectly clean. The food was excellent, fresh fish caught that day. The staff was really friendly and helpful. We will come back for sure!

I highly recommend staying at Mawimbi - the room was perfect , the staff was great and accommodating - my only regret is that we did not stay longer..... Clean rooms, nice bar and restaurant - the beach was clean and comfortable. If you go to Holbox stay there - you will not be disappointed!!!
