My hubby and I just returned from our stay at Mawimbi and through our many years traveling together, this was the most relaxing vacation ever (helps that you're on a beautiful beach, welcomed by friendly staffers, and you're "unplugged" for the week)! The "crab" room was small but comfortable, the breakfast light but filling, and the white sand and warm waters speak for themselves. The place is immaculately groomed, room cleaned daily and loved the tropical natural setting. Also appreciated the complimentary breakfast and cold water cooler (little touches and the friendliness of everyone - from the servers to the front desk and cleaning staff - mean a lot to us). Highly recommend the whale shark tour (VIP Holbox/Whale Shark Daddy), renting a golf cart for 2 hours to see Punta Coco and Punta Mosquito to see the flamingos, and eating at Viva Zapata, Los Peleones, Zarabanda, and Buena Vista Grill restaurants (in that order). Also, like everyone said, please get cash from the airport ATM or bring money for the currency exchange (since the island's ATMs are unreliable). The hotel also arranged transfers from Transfer Holbox which freed a lot of stress for us on transportation (plus, the price was very reasonable). Enjoy your stay at this beautiful island and resort. We're already making plans to come back!
