We stayed in Seahorse for 5 nights ($180 USD per night) in May. Perfect experience - beach was pristine, staff was wonderful and unobtrusive, breakfasts were varied and delicious. Room had very little surface area, and no drawers, so we had to mostly live out of our suitcase but king sized bed was super comfortable, and bathroom huge. Mawimbi has a very chill, calm vibe and is beautifully landscaped. Staff were masked all the time, and arranged for a pre-return to US Covid test for us - the nurse came right to our room. We had returned after a visit in 2013 and will come again.

Hotel's Favourite
We've travelled to Holbox four times now, and our favorite place to stay is Mawimbi! It is lovely and tranquil, under great palm trees on a beautiful stretch of beach. There are things to do on Holbox if you want to, or you can just relax and listen to the waves and swim which seems to be what I always end up doing. The owners and everyone who runs it are so welcoming and helpful with travel arrangements and restaurant reservations, they make everything easy. The food at the restaurant Barquito is delicious! Holbox is best for people who don't want the big party atmosphere of Cancun. In this Covid era, those of you who need Covid shots to return to your home country can have this easily arranged here too. Mawimbi is so nice I almost don't want to tell other people about it!

Nice place to unwind. Beach living like on romantic novels. Got a little scared the first afternoon not realizing it was siesta time. Everything opens in the evening. Golf carts and bicycles. Had a joy walking a rescue dog for a day at the beach, did this twice

This hotel is without doubt one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. The pictures don't do it justice, it's even more spectacular in person. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the rooms are picturesque, it is as advertised and right on the beach. Only a couple of blocks from all the downtown area. The hotel included breakfast was wonderful, fresh fruit, local food, a great way to start the day, and the bar/restaurant has great local food, fresh, light, and the service was great. It was a perfect, tropical setting and we can't wait to go back.
