Those people inclined to holistic, natural, relaxing environments, this is the place. Wake up and go swim at the lagoon and after that have a nice and healthy breakfast. Beautiful and quiet surrounding next the Bacalar lagoon with breathtaking scenario where you can have the mayan steam bath along with holistic massage and insuperable relaxing atmosphere at excellent prices.

We stayed here 1 night in March 2014. Too bad we only stayed 1 night since the place is AMAZING! The staff is VERY friendly and helpful! We fully recommend to take the boat tour with Captain Javier. He is so passionate about showing the amazing places this magical Lagoon has to offer. The hotel is very nice & very... More

One day we (2 adults + 1 child) stayed there for lunch only. A few days after, we spent one night in a cabana with a lake view. After another few days we spent one night in another cabana with lake view and private access to the Laguna Bacalar. Then, we finally moved to a garden view cabana. We also... More

Amazing hotel facing the lagoon of Bacalar. The rooms are big, comfortable, quiet and charming. We had one with a direct view on the Laguna.The restaurant with lagoon view is really good andbuffet-breakfast is delicious. It's clearly the best hotel of our trip in Mexico. We did the 3h boat tour, the staff found another couple to share the price.... More

This is our second trip to Bacalar. We were here in 2013 also. Once again we wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed at Pehaltun ( right next door to Rancho Encantado) for the second time and it was even better then the first. We have tried a few different restaurants in Bacalar but Rancho Encantado BY FAR has... More

I almost didn't write a review for this place because there are already so many rave reviews on Trip Advisor, but it truly was magnificent. It is not in town but located on a perfect lagoon location not too far from Bacalar. My wife and I travel a lot and this may be the place where we have felt the... More

What we enjoyed the most about the hotel was the service we received, it was outstanding. The food was excellent. The grounds were well kept. The location is wonderful for a getaway. We slept so soundly in the quiet surroundings. We woke to enjoy a beautiful sunrise. The reception was very helpful in arranging a four hour tour of the... More

I come from an are of the world that has me access to probably the most lakes per square miles in all of North America so once I got to look around at Rancho Encantado, I got to realize that it's just a lake ....pretty much the same as what I get back home...a clear lake, with nice hues of... More
