My husband spends much of the winter in Mexico for work, and I usually fly in a few times to visit. He decided to surprise me with a getaway, and booked us 3 nights at Akalki based on the recommendation from a local friend in Cancun. The friend compared the resort to being in Tahiti, and assured my husband we... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Akalki for a week in December 2013 as part of a retreat I was attending, it was a joy and delivered on everything that was promised. The rooms are lovely, clean, spacious and perfectly situated on the freshwater lagoon. The site itself is set far back from any road so one has the... More

My wife and I spent the first 2 nights of our honeymoon here. The drive from Cancun (total 4 hours) wasn't as bad as we thought. We drove during the day, was not scary at all aside from the tarantulas that cross the road half way on our drive. We never felt in danger while stopping for gas or driving... More

There was some confusion with payment of my reservation deposit through Paypal and Akal Ki canceled my reservation without notifying me, even though they did receive my $258 payment according to Paypal, and according to my credit card statement. I discovered the cancelation by accident only 2 days before our vacation when I emailed to find out if they could... More

We paid for our reservation before our check in time and waited at the location for hours. When we're checking in at the front desk we were right there informed that the owner had let the people in the cabana (the one we had paid for already) stay another night. They did returned our money but ruined our hole trip... More

I read some of the reviews. Let me tell you my impressions about AKALKI. The place is impressive! Even if the hotel is not great, the place makes it all. But, lets talk about the hotel: Installations are very nice. Is not a four seasons, but is quite good. Clean, commodities are good. Some nice details. The view from your... More

I cannot recommend this Hotel enough. Having travelled extensively in Mexico and world wide, this has been a truly unique experience. The rooms/cabanas are beautiful, every detail is thought out with love, the views on to the Laguna de Bacalar are magical. The serenity and great respect to nature, are one of the most outstanding features. The staff is extraordinary,... More

The location is spectacular. Beautiful fresh water lagoon. Lots of archeological Mayan sites in the area, great for day trips. Lots of activities (kayak, boat trips, catamaran, paddling boards), fun for kids, very peaceful. Nicely run hotel, friendly staff. Full review on my web site .
