We drove from Playa del Carmen to the resort. We were concerned with finding the place but find it easily by following the directions given on the site. The only thing is the trail off the main road which is a dirt road and bumpy. Don't drive there at night as you are literally in the jungle. The place is... More

At the end of a remote, jungle road, just when you think you're lost, be prepared to enter a very special paradise! Ready and waiting to serve you is a friendly and accommodating staff full of smiles and welcoming conversation. As you wander towards the fresh water lagoon, the brilliant colors and the warm breeze awaken your senses. Whether you're... More

My family just returned from our cruise and one of the excursions with the Native Choice tour group to the Maya Ruins and a stop off at this resort. They were amazing. Great food, great service, great location. I'd return in a second. I'd recommend taking water shoes.

First off I want to start off by saying that I rarely if ever write a review. I believe if you can not say something good just keep your mouth shut... But this place was amazing!!! Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful and, as I have said before, amazing. It is tastefully laid out with every unit having a view of the water.... More

Great place to visit with your couple. No more than 8 rooms. Next to the lagoon and with an exc lent restaurant. The bungalows in front of the lake are better equipped however the ones on the top of the hill have more privacy. In summary a great place with great food and really private. A little difficult to find... More

These were 3 of the most relaxing days of my life. A beautiful place, on a beautiful lake, with a wonderful dog who lives there and says hello. The food (breakfast and dinner) is wonderful- we had fresh fish two nights, and a seafood pasta the other night. The cabins are clean and cozy, staying cool with the breeze off... More

The only problem we had was trying to find this place. We drove to Bacalar town and asked around and found that it was about 20 miles back toward Tulum. My maps app didn't help as the dirt roads that take you back to the place aren't shown on the map. We found a really helpful woman and American man... More

We overnighted here one night in December. The drive in was great! Very out of the way. The property and lake were gorgeous. We kayaked and swam and couldn't of asked for a prettier setting with beautiful birds. I would suggest maybe bringing a cooler with you for drinks or snacks. There are no refrigerators in the rooms so it'd... More

We had a really relaxing time here with 3 families. Kayaking and sunning on the lagoon. You can do daytrips into the town of Bacalar, Cenote Azul, local ruins, etc. We hadn't done our homework and so didn't realize the location is somewhat remote and isn't well marked at the road. At first we worried that we might feel trapped... More

This is a stunning small resort on The Seven Color Lagoon. It is the only one in the over 42 mile length as the gov't has disallowed continued development. Therefor this is a very tranquil location; no motorized water vehicles of any sort. I visited here as part of a tour with Native Choice. No large tour buses could get... More
