I think Mawimbi is for someone looking for an unique experience in HolBox. The island itself isn’t as other places near Cancun. You won’t be able to find fancy restaurants or tons of tourists. Here is quiet. I was lying on the Mawimbi beach in the morning for a couple of days and it was amazing, you don’t hear a thing except for the peaceful ocean. Sometimes it is so quiet that you don’t even hear the waves. We stayed 2 nights at the Tortuga suite. The room was spacious, clean and it has all that you need. The restaurant is also very good. Both Sofi and Paco make our stay very special. Excellent Margaritas, authentic and delicious food.
My only complaint is that they accept credit card only if you pay a extra fee, which depends on the % of how much you spend. I'd strongly recommend that you bring enough cash, as around the Island is the same thing. Other than that we have an excellent experience and we would definitely recommend this place.
