    The Forty Cannons Hotel or in Spanish ‘La Posada de los 40 Cañones’, is a wonderful boutique hotel, located in the center of Mahahual, that will meet and exceed your expectations right from the start.

    A beautifully-designed lobby with its water features flowing under a wooden walkway, tropical gardens integrated into the design, wicker lanterns suspended from the high ceilings –set a tone for a relaxing vacation. While the postcard-perfect views of the white beach, offset by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean will make you realize – it’s not a dream! You are truly in tropical paradise.

    Staff Own a “No Request is Too Small” Level of Service

    With a “No request is too small” mantra, it is no wonder that La Posada de los 40 Cañones service is something guests consistently talk about. The staff really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

    The Forty Cannons Hotel rooms are excellent. Depending on your needs and number of people traveling with you, you can choose between the Standard and Superior rooms, Junior and Family suites or the hotel’s 2 spacious apartments.

    All of the hotel’s accommodations are air-conditioned and come with a private bathroom, a ceiling fan, and Wi-Fi. The standard and superior rooms are furnished with a queen-size and a single bed. The suites boast breath-taking views of the Caribbean and Mahahual beach. While the modern apartments, located on the 2nd and 3rd floor, are even larger in size and feature a separate living room, a private balcony and a fully-equipped kitchen.

    Off the central courtyard, you’ll find a thatched-roof Mexican-Italian restaurant that opens up onto the Malecón and overlooks the beach. This is an ideal place to enjoy a chilled beer during the day or share a romantic dinner at night.

    Restaurant, Beach Club and Access to the Mahahual Malecon

    Across the street from the restaurant is the 40 Cannon’s beach club. Here you’ll find numerous lounge chairs, day beds and beach palapas for total relaxation. The water in front of the beach club is calm and shallow for quite a distance, making it great for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking (even if you are traveling with small children). There is a barrier reef worth exploring just off the shore. And if you wake up early in the morning you can sometimes see dolphins swimming by.

    Forty Cannons Hotel or La Posada de los 40 Cañones, as locals like to call it, is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a an amazing Caribbean vacation.
