I've stayed at many of the hotels in Mahuhaul and there are quite a few "good" hotels that I was very satisfied with during my prior trips but Caballo Blanco is a notch above the rest for a variety of reasons. First, the location and views are simply breathtaking, just picture that idealistic Caribbean ocean view you might see in a Carona commercial and you will start to understand just how special this place is. From the moment I arrived I felt like I was visiting friends - kind of a cheesy cliche I know but I can't describe it any other way! By the time you leave the entire staff will know your name, have treated you like family, and have made it very hard to leave (believe me, I ended up extending my trip a few days because I couldn't bring myself to leave!). Tina, the owner, and her family run the hotel and I couldn't have asked for a better host. The rooms are great, comfortable beds, sky TV, internet access, etc. All that you would expect in a great hotel. Try the lobster tacos, incredible and you won't be disappointed. Finally, I'm writing this review with mixed emotions....The selfish side of me would like to keep this gem to myself;). Bottom line, if your thinking about a trip to Mahuhaul or anywhere in the southern yucatan this is the hotel for you. You will not be disappointed!
I arrived as a guest but left having gained new friends vowing to return as soon as humanly possible. After saying our goodbyes as I was leaving and exchanging hugs with Tina and staff (which speaks volumes) I began my trip back home....a sad trip home. The next time I'm traveling for work and staying at one of the big national chains I'm going to give the front desk person a hug when I check out....just kidding but you get the point. I'll post a bunch of pictured that I took during my stay. Words can't possibly express how much I enjoyed my stay ! Thank you Tina, looking forward to my next visit!!!
