  • 6.0.Good

    We were very excited to stay at this hotel in Mahahual. While the staff is super friendly and accommodating, the hotel itself is quite run down and not like the pictures. It really could use updating. Our air conditioning was not cooling and then it started to drip water everywhere. They sent up two young guys to fix it. The hotel was in such bad shape that the guys could barely slide the window open to fix the AC unit. The hotel staff was kind enough and offered for us to move to a new room. We did have a view of the ocean which would have been nice but unfortunately we were there during the high sargazo (seaweed) season. The hotel is at the very end of the beach which is nice because it is very calm. The hotel has hammocks (a definite plus) and kayaks to use. They recently installed a very small pool to try to alleviate the sargazo situation. The shower had very little water pressure, but it did have hot water. Overall, the bathroom was small. I feel that this hotel needs to offer more/update the facility if it wants to keep charging the same prices.

    More basic than it looks in the pictures, we got the Superior Room and it wasn't more than a basic double room except that the view is really nice. The facilities lack maintenance, the door was dirty and oily, we had a hard time opening the sliding door to the balcony, one of the chairs there was falling apart with nails sticking out, there were no towels when we arrived and after requesting them they only sent 2 for 3 people. We didn't use the beach facilities but they looked really nice, we ordered room service and the food was above our expectations and the staff was really friendly and helpful.

    Pros: right at the beach that is beautiful, offer lots of services such as kayaks, bikes and tours; friendly staff; amazing view from the balcony. Cons: don’t have nets that stop mosquitoes from entering through the balcony. Once you spray insecticide, all of them fall on the bed and the floor. There were also roaches.

    If they did some maintenance it would be my favor-

    Lovely location, it was a really nice place at one time but there has been virtually no maintenance. Way beyond shabby chic. Too bad too, staff is very friendly and helpful, lovely beach. If they did some upkeep it could be my favorite place to stay.

    great location a little bit outside the tourist area so it’s pretty quiet, which is good. ideal area for snorklling lovers (snorklling area right in front of the hotel). but poor service at the reception. the front desk staff is well trained to sell you their food, services and activities, but they don’t advise you well and they are not really helpful neither.

    El hotel es un asco, sucio, descuidado y viejo. En el primer cuarto que me dieron habia miles de mosquitos adentro, imposible dormir en un lugar asi y al cuarto que me cambiaron tenia una cucaracha, un lugar asqueroso. El servicio es bastante regular. el internet no funciono ni un minuto. La regadera tira dos gotas de agua y el jabon es rosa venus como de motel barato. No volveria ni gratis. Las fotos son un absoluto engaño

    El personal es muy amable, sin embargo, las instalaciones ya están muy descuidadas. La ubicación tiene mucho potencial pero si no le dan el debido mantenimiento, pronto, en un par de años, el hotel se caerá a pedazos.
