We did not stay at this beautiful property. We did eat @ the restaurant, and found the food to be good, not great, the service was very friendly, and one of the most beautiful views one can imagine! Bacalar Lagoon truly has Seven Colors, maybe more, crystal clear water, at the shallowest, to the deepest blues you can imagine, in... More

This was our last tour via Playa Del Carmen before heading back to Canada after 3 mths and I can honestly say this was the highlight of our trip this time. The view is so breath-taking day and night. I felt like was on a cruise ship in 'little Italy'. We had a suite of 2 adjoining bdrms w/baths and... More

We visited two weeks ago, It is a nice hotel if you are staying there for a couple of days. It has a great view The only thing is that the electrcity went off and eventhough they gave us candles, it is an inconvinience when you are there to relax. It toomk like nine hours for it to come back

We live in Belize city, so we just looked up that hotel at booking.com, they had vacancies for 50$ for 3 guests. We didn't book on line as we need just 2 hours to get there. When we were checking in the price was 1000 pesos ($77). Nevermind just an observation. The location is great, the view from the room... More

It felt a bit strange when we entered the hotel, because it was not high-season so we were nearly the only guests there. But that wasn't a bad thing: we were tired after a long road trip to see the lagoon. The rooms looked nice and romantic, but could use some updates (e.g. the top of the washbasin was partly... More

Around Bacalar there are many places to stay; we've tried several and yet we've stayed here more often. Yes, it's 42 years old and needs a bit of professional maintenance but it sits in a superb position above the lagoon; offers cabins or hotel-style rooms; has decent wifi in the common areas; features friendly bar and restaurant service; offers boat...

When we arrived, they didn't even know we were coming. Through booking.com, we were promised a "superior" bedroom for 2, what we got was a dirty, outdated hole next to the loud parking lot. The room was dirty: very large pieces of hair in the bathroom, dust and dirt everywhere, on the couch was a footprint and undefinable stains. They... More

OK, we were lucky that the usual horrid yucatan July/August heat abated due to rain (and it's raining there still they tell me, yikes!) yet it was still warm enough that we thoroughly enjoyed the clean, clear water of Laguna Bacalar. What makes this hotel a 5 in location is that it is on a sunken cenote. Most of the... More
