We came to visit with our two children of five and six and our small dog that she was kind enough to allow us to bring. The whole place is epic, Ginny is awesome and she gave us coffee and smoothies free of charge. Violeta is sweet and helpful and the dogs are cute and friendly. We will definitely return... More

Although the wonderful owner Ginny was very generous with her time and car to run us into town for shopping and the cenote, it would probably be best to have a car here. The cabanas are about five klicks from town, which is a good thing, as the lake is much more user friendly in terms of depth, clarity and... More

Staying at Ginny’s wonderful casita was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The casita is beautiful, well equipped and is situated close to the waterfront of the beautiful lagoon. Ginny herself is a warm and welcoming host and has a lot of knowledge about the area. We really loved staying and chatting with her and can warmly recommend... More

what an incredible place. my wife and i went for a quiet getaway and rest off the beaten path and away from the garish noisy bustle of Cancun, Playa, and Tulum. Pehaltun exceeded our expectations. Located on an enormous crystal clear warm fresh water lake aptly named the Lake of the Rainbows, we stayed in the cabana, the furthest of... More

Where to start and how to describe a "private Paradise" that does this lovely place justice? To begin with, Pehaltun is a beautiful piece of property with a stunning view of the turquoise waters of the Bacalar Lagoon. The sunrises are spectacular and the grounds tropical, green and luscious. There is a private dock that is covered and invites readers,... More

This is a really difficult review to write, because clearly Ginny the owner tries really, really hard to make this place nice. It's just that the efforts aren't always successful. The location is wonderful, secluded, right on the lake. There's a palapa right out of a travel brochure from paradise, kayaks to use free of charge, drinking water included, kitchenette,... More

Ginny B, Owner at Pehaltun Villas, responded to this review

This was a difficult situation. We have replaced the water heater, and the air conditioner, but I am offended that the guest did not mention that as soon as I realized that the air conditioner was not working properly. I offered him another place to stay and he declined. The problem with the ants? Well, this is the tropical jungle.... More

This property exceeds all the positive reviews that have been posted! Four of us recently had the privilege of staying for five days and exploring the surrounding area. We were in the casita and the palapa. Both were clean and contained everything needed for our stay. The property is beautiful, secure and well maintained. The dock and lake are absolutely... More

This is a VERY special place for VERY special people. Run by an EXCEPTIONALLY SPECIAL woman. All the excellent reviews are true. The lake tour and daily massages are a must---so inexpensive you would be foolish to deny yourself. The best food in the province is to be found next door at Rancho Encanto (nice ambience, low prices). Staying at... More
