Our Review

The very friendly Italian owners have lovingly designed the small hotel complex in Mexican style. Located on the best part of beach on the coast, the hotel has an unusually large and comfortable beach area with a beautiful garden. The ambience is quiet, very warm and family-like. The service is excellent and the associated beach restaurant “Barquito” offers not only excellent food, but also delicious breakfasts and irresistibly good cocktails.

The rooms are very clean and well maintained and available in different sizes and price categories. In addition, tours to fish or snorkel with whale sharks are offered with their own motorboat. If you want to spend your vacation here you should book early, because the boutique hotel Mawimbi is usually booked up weeks or even months in advance.
