We had made a booking via hostel bookers and when we arrived to magic bacalar they knew nothing about it. Although that would have normally not been a problem, they kept asking us if we were at the wrong hostel and it took them way too long to figure the situation out. Next we realized that the originally booked 6-bed... More

Magic Bacalar is absolutely beautiful with its very own private pier for guests to use. 10 minute walk into town which was very handy. The breakfast is one of the best we have had on our trip!! We stayed in the double room which we personally thought was nice but very over priced compared to other places we have stayed.... More

We had a lovely time here! The private room is cosy with a beautiful view over the lagune. The host Daniel is the perfect host. The pier is a great place to spent your day or evening. The food is the best in town, so is the breakfast. Everything is handmade in wood and the atmosphere is great. We really... More

We stayed with our two kids in a tent and it was awesome, the tent was super well equipped with good fresh smell linen and very comfortable mattresses (almost better than a regular bed mattress). The location is wonderful, few steps from the lagoon. They have a private pier on the lagoon and it is so relaxing to sit there... More

What a great time I had there! You can notice that the owners take good care of it and pay attention to design and details that fit the place to the environment around. The private pier on the lagoon is so awesome! I stayed there all day long and I met great people there! We had a night bath at... More

Very beautiful hostel/cabanas, with a private beach. Rooms are very clean and beds are new and comfortable. Toilets and showers are very clean too. Very friendly owners that makes you feel like at home. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for two nights in February 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. We are travelling on a tight budget so could only afford to stay in the dorm room which was a little bit crowded but it wasn't full of guests which meant we had a little more room for manoeuvre! That aside, the bedroom was very clean... More

We enjoyed our stay in Magic Bacalar a lot. The staff is very helpful and nice, the food is great and the Laguna is amazing! The hostel site is literally on the bank of the Laguna. There are lots of facilities to use and excursions organized by the hostel. Recommended to all!

I stayed in a small attic-like room with a very low ceiling and with steep ladder-like steps for access. The space was a little cramped but it was private and inexpensive, and the other rooms and dorms were nicer and more spacious. The grounds were well landscaped with easy access to the very beautiful lake. Bathrooms were well designed with... More
