Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Mawimbi
Calle Igualdad s/n, Isla Holbox, Quintana Roo, 77310, Mexico
Known for its Mexican hospitality, this small hotel is made up of brightly painted beachside bungalows. Rooms are clean, simple, and tastefully decorated. While the cement floors aren't optimal, the exposed wooden beams under the palapa-style roof are very cozy, as are the splashes of color found on the chairs and bedspreads. Each bed is draped with a mosquito net, so you'll be safe from nighttime critters. A few rooms have kitchens, and the most expensive ones have ocean-view balconies. A small beachside, thatch-roof restaurant serves food that couldn't be fresher. Breakfast is included—expect local fruit, homemade bread, and fresh jams. In summer, ask the owners about their whale shark tours.
