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

This is an excellent choice for a hostel, right on the lake, walking distance from the town centre (although you will want to take a taxi from the bus station). The dorms are a little cramped, but the private room upstairs was a lot of fun---under the thatch eaves with a little private ladder down. Swimming off the dock is... More

My partner and I went to Bacalar on a friends recommendation. (stay far away from Chetumal as possible). I began searching for somewhere to stay and found this well within our budget. If you are looking for somewhere very quiet, friendly, clean and great food i would recommend this to anyone. We ended getting the private room which was cool... More

I still don't even know how I got there but I surely don't regret. The hotel is amazing, the owner is the nicest person he will make you feel like home and help you with everything. It has a direct access to the Laguna, you are allow to pick up basil, oregan and other stuffs from the garden, even coco... More

We stayed at magic for one night. The whole place is built Maya style, with much thought about every detail. There is a nice kitchen and dining area, access to the lagoon with an option to rent kayaks and a dock. We loved the outdoor (but private and cleen) showers. The dorm is a bit crowded but there are mosquito... More

The most magic part of Magic Bacalar is Silvia. Delicious and affordably priced her meals are available from the reception. I asked her to marry me but she settled on adopting instead. Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner do yourself a favour and eat at least one of her meals.

Hostel is a nice, dreamy little place with friendly staff and very good breakfast (included). A couple of notes though: I wouldn't suggest getting a tent- you're either going to be roasting hot, or stuck in torrential rain (if you're going between June-sept). Unfortunately the main dorms are very overcrowded and they felt like something out of M*A*S*H. Even one... More

I spent two nights in this very nice place located right on the Bacalar Lagoon in July 2013. When we got to Bacalar town, we didn't know where to go because the few places we knew where closed or full. It seems that this place is not very well advertised, since the tourist office and most of the people in... More
