We enjoyed our stay in Bacalar very much. A perfect place to chill and relax with nice sun and moon rises. The staff was friendly and helpful. Free drinking water and wifi in the reception area was provided. The hostal has direct access to the lagoon. Kitchen and toilet and shower and rooms were all very clean. Thanks to the... More

The place is very well located, right on the Laguna of Bacalar, and so the rates are pretty high for a camping. But i thought it would be worth it to have a direct access to the Laguna, which is the main attraction of the village. The reason why I gave this mark is that my boyfriend and I felt... More

I really enjoyed my stay at magic Bacalar however I can see that it wouldn't be right for everyone. The dorm room is so tightly packed with beds with mosquito nets that you can hardly slide down the middle to get into bed, that said it kinda works and I had a pretty decent sleep there. It feels a bit... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for two nights at Magic Bacalar, a quiet little place overlooking the lagoon. We had booked one of apparently two single rooms, both of them in the attic of a hut facing the lagoon. The room was small and mostly dark, but - as the rest of the property - very clean (thanks to a... More

Breakfast is excellent! Food is better the restaraunts in town. But, food is not always available, sometimes the kitchen is closed. Bathroom is shared and a bit far away from the dorm. But, all the trouble is worth it for the beautiful lake. The cabanas are cozy with nice atmosphere. I would stay here again.

The hostel is great, people are really nice and willing to help! Loved that the hostel is at an amazing part of the Lago, with place to swim and stay in the sun. The catamaran trip was awesome, Bacalar is such an amazing place! And the breakfast is good, perfect to start the day, coffee is reaaally good there. Near... More

Do it- the catamaran trip was great, especially the jump from the tree into the cenote! The hostel is great, people friendly and super helpful- and the laguna bacalar is a piece of paradise- it feels like out of this world.

Magic is whimsical with lights in all the trees, a small path through a garden, all sitting on the warm clear Lago Bacalar. The huts are tropical basic, ventilation blinds, mosquito nets, and fans. The bunks were clean but the 2 kitchens could use a bit more upkeep (granted, one is outside so no high expectations). Overall a great place... More

Amazing place, just amazing! Best services rooms aren't bad and the access to the lake is really beautiful and chilled! Ask for Daniel and his amazing tours! If you are in bacalar you must stay in Magic Hostel

The staff was friendly and helpful. Kayaking was fun, the lagoon and private dock is beautiful. The private room was nice, and everything was kept clean. I will go back again. Breakfast was good as well! The town was quiet which was nice and the Fuerte was a neat place to walk through.
