This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been up to now. If you are looking for "real" vacation you should stay here for 1 or 2 days (the more the better but also more expensive) ;) It is not a party hotel and there is nothing anywhere near, neither to go shopping nor partying. It's all about... More

This place is very special, while in the Bacalar Lagoon it is far enough from the town to make it feel like the lagoon of the many colors is your own backyard pool. The small boutique has spacious and environmentaly friendly rooms power by solar energy. There is no AC but we did not feel a need. The perimeter is... More

We stayed here in 2008 when it was very new. It was such a surprise to find Akalki after spending 2 weeks in Mahajual, in a rental house on the beach........not pretty! We bailed on the 3rd week and headed out to see what we could find , and boy did we score with Akalki, the Owners and staff were... More

I have stayed at many similar places around the world and I don't think I have ever been so disappointed. As a birthday trip I was greatly looking forward to this but the price (very high) for the service just wasn't there. The first night I was kept up all night with the heat as the one very pathetic fan... More

Bacalar is really an extraordinary place, and Akalki is by far the best hotel you'll find. I am glad Bacalar in general is not yet that well promoted so that it remains a quiet, not crouded destiny. Akalki has a great vibe for being in contact with nature, the lake is out of this world (literally) and they have great... More

We arrived at this beautiful, fairytale like lagoon and were greeted with a nice bungalow right on the water. I traveled with my two children (11 and 9). The hotel is located in the tropical forest with beautiful palapas. For the first two days we felt a little lost, knowing there are a lot of activities in the area felt... More

Akalki is hidden paradise in Bacalar. The location is absolutely exceptional with a view that will mesmerize you. Also enjoy the delicious food and exceptional service while swimming in the crystal blue waters.

Akalki was truly a Paradise! The setting was absolutely breathtaking and the rooms lovely and totally comfortable. Could not have asked for better service, in every possible was; yoga, massage, coffee and muffins brought to our room, etc. The dining experience, scrumptious, as well as beautifully presented. We will return many times. Alice Hughes

With just 7 cottages on Lake Bacalar, and four other rooms, it is private, quiet, and romantic. The staff could not be more accommodating, the prices are reasonable, and the cottages are outstanding.
