Ko'ox El Hotelito Beach Hotel
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Mahahual
Reviewed 6 August 2014

It is located maybe 500ft from the area where you want to be most of the time when you are visiting Mahahual. It does not have its own beach club, but has an alliance with hotel El Fuerte and you can lounge in their facilities all day.

Overall it is very good value for your money, but then again you are not paying much, so that is what you get. Clean, air conditioned rooms with a tiny TV. The bathroom was roomy though.

They also feed the iguanas with leftovers from the complimentary continental breakfast. I don't know if it is good for them or not, but they do flock 15 at a time every morning to get the scraps.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if you have a lot of luggage try ti get something in the first or second flo...

We are finishing our stay at this hotel. We have been here for 10 of our 13 days so I think I can go ahead and write a review. First I wll say we have stayed here before so we did know what to expect. The rooms are clean and functional. The staff is very friendly and accomadating. Ivan and Hannah helped us in every way they could. If you want a clean and quiet place to stay this is it.

This is an excellent hotel. It is clean, comfortable, quiet and functional. Unlike some places in the region, everything advertised is in-place and works. Wifi, cable, A/C, hot water, etc, etc. The staff is very friendly, helpful and competent. Great location right on the promenade. Very reasonable pricing. Enjoy.

Was taken aback at first when arriving into Mahahaul, it was pretty much closed up as there were no cruise ships. That changed the next day and stores opened, restaurants were busy and the beach went from dead to bustling. Mahahual over all was a nice little place, but really nothing to do other than eat drink and sit on the beach. The Hotelito was very nice. Staff are great and very accommodating. Our room was at the very top which had a nice view. Room was very small, but super clean. I liked that it was at the far south end of the Malecon, so nice and quiet with the exception of the daily early morning garbage truck (which they are so proud of as it is a new addition to the community), which broadcasts some loud canned music to make sure your garbage is out and ready. This was a road trip for us from Akumal. It was a very interesting drive to Mahahaul and enjoyed the journey :)

Such a comfortable space, clean and modern with a nice bed, solid building, safe, excellent helpful staff. LOVED our stay!
When we return to Mahahual this will be our first choice to stay. Rooms are immaculate, have ac, free wifi, and ATM on site that works more often than rest in town (3 others) don't count on it, bring cash.

Mahahual was a big disappointment and we only stayed one night. El Hotelito, howeve, is a sweet little place, the rooms on the top floor have a nice view of the town and all the horrible cruise ship tourists that invade this place every morning.

The staff at Hotelito are sweet, the rooms have Sky TV and guests have access to the beach facilities of a large hotel down the road.

Nice stay and good value for money.

Don't miss the wall of iguanas beside the parking area. Staff is delightful. 2nd tier location with great views. Lots of steps! No towel rack, shower sprays out into the bathroom, shower was hot but vascillated from soft to hard constantly, no bedside reading light. Small complaints given the overall experience. We have stayed here before and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. As far as I know, the onsite ATM machine never works. Money is hard to get in Mahahual.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with lots of steps, stay elsewhere.
