The staff (especially at the breakfast bar) was super friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and have a fully equipped kitchen (there's even a blender!) Located close to stores, restaurants, etc. The only negative point I have to add is that they could be a bit cleaner overall (rooms, pool,...)

Is a great place to stay, rooms were clean and very nice. Friendly staff. We had a whole villa with 2 rooms kitchen, living room, extra space with a futon. Rooms were overlooking the lagoon with balcony. The only thing missing was maybe some complementary coffee for coffee maker :) Loved this place great gate away

I tried to stay at Ranco Bacalar but they were full and the manager was nice enough to call Villas Bacalar and they were almost empty so I got a beautiful one bedroom suite overlooking the pool. It's about 1 1/2 blocks from the big public resort on the lake and 3-4 blocks from the fort/museum (which was a must... More

I have been traveling for a few days not in the Quintana Roo areas. This is the worst hotel yet. The ac leaked a lot, covering the entire floor of the room. Guy at the front desk came in looked and gave us 2 kitchen size towels to mop it up. Then wanting to enjoy the beautiful lagoon, I asked... More

available, it was only offered after numerous queries at the office. Good things: thWe expected more for the price. Beds were fine, but there was nothing comfortable to sit on, and we had a sitting area. The only thing in it, the futon, was stuck in open position. There was no drinking water provided, only one 500ml bottle for 2... More

Just back from a short 24 hours visit to Laguna Bacalar from our rented condo in Puerto Aventuras following advices from passing travellers. Experience unique and exciting for who wants to get off the beaten path and live an exotic experience. The road from Tulum to Laguna Bacalar very different from the Carretera Cancun-Tulum. Very boring, not much to see,... More

January 2009. This is a beautiful hotel nestled amongst extreme poverty. The worst part of it is finding it. Going south on Highway 307 turn at the 2nd Pemex Gas station on the left and continue toward the lagoon until you are about 2 blocks from the water. Look to your right and you'll see a miniscule sign identifying Villas... More
