A wonderful location at a wonderful lake ! Not cheap, but worth every dollar ! Overwater bungalows with overwater terraces to jump into the lake. Large rooms, great architecture, tasteful details everywhere ! Wake up with the view to the turquoise water of the lake ! Feel like being on Maldives ! Excellent restaurant and excellent superfriendly service, free bikes... More

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. If you are looking for a very quiet, very romantic place, come here. This is the second time for my wife and I, and we will be... More

Recently stayed at Hotel Akalki for 2 nights, wish it could have been for much longer! I'm really surprised by any review on here that is for less than 5/Excellent. Yes, this is a very quiet, calm, and serene type of place -- so if you are looking for a lively/party scene, this isn't for you. If you're looking to... More

I you want to feel what is it the Paradise, you should spend some days (or an eternity) here. The views are great, the Laguna is incredible and the rooms and service great. Food is also very fine. You don't need to go out.

We place is super relaxing, but still with a lot of activities to do. We did go for kayaking and had a... More

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay at Centro Holistico Akalki. The location is absolutely beautiful, the lagoon and its 7 colors simply breathtaking, and it is amazing to still be able to visit a gorgeous tourist location that is still so underdeveloped. The food and service at the restaurant were both very good, and while the rooms are a bit... More

From the moment I arrived to hostess Pamela's warm smile and my frozen welcome drink to the moment I cast my last gaze over the blue, pristine waters of the Bacalar Lagoon I felt that Akalki was the place for me to reconnect with myself and nature. The place is just filled with positive energy and the surrounding lagoon babbles... More

This place has a great amount of good energy. The cabins are very comfortable as well as very clean. We stayed at a lagoon cabin and we enjoyed every morning opening our door right into the lagoon. The food is very good at the restaurant as well as the service. The people working there are the nicest and keep this... More

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
