Hotel Arenas
Ranked #16 of 22 Mahahual B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 November 2010

We recently stayed at the Hotel Arenas in Mahahual (11/2010) and found it to be a very nice small hotel. The rooms were about 15'x15' plus the bathroom and balcony/deck, ours had a king size bed, with a large wardrobe for hanging clothes and drawer items. The hotel has only about 6 to 8 rooms, so it is a small intimate place, very friendly and helpful staff with a restaurant/bar right on the premises. We paid a in advance for our trip (about $65 inc Tax) and our reservation was correct when we arrived and the manager was waiting to check us in herself.

The restaurant has a small, but tasty menu, for breakfast. lunch and dinner. The Margaritas were hand mixed and generous compared to many places in the area. Restaurant prices were very reasonable, about 70 to 200 pesos per dinner entree, depending on the item. Seafood, chicken and pasta dominated the dinner selections.

The beach is directly across the small dirt beach access road from the hotel, about 75 feet from our room. There are chairs and lounges with umbrellas for sitting on the beach as well as outside of the hotel.

Make no mistake, Hotel Arenas is not a 5 star 1st class hotel as you might find in the larger resorts, ie Cancun, but there are none of those in Mahahual anyway, as the town is a very small laid back beach/fishing village in a somewhat remote area. Hotel Arenas is however, as very friendly, clean comfortable place to stay basically right on the beach.

We had a rental car, so the Hotel's location about 1 mile from the center of town was great for us. If you want to stumble from bar to bar and then back to your hotel, either stay in town or get a cab, which were readily available.

The dive shop we used was just about 1/2 mile down the road from the hotel, so that was also convenient for us.

All in all, we really liked the place and will try to return soon.
