The biggest plus of this hotel is definitely the establishment itself. It is a very neatly decorated place, actually quite big, with direct access to the lake. Once you see it from the lake ( f.e. when you take one of the Kajaks that you can use for 50 Q per hour, or by doing a Boat tour ) you... More

The only favorable thing of this place is that it is clean. Everything is old and has no maintenance. We payed for two nights and left the hotel after the first one. It was preferable losing our money than spending another night there. In one word, it is just depressing. We found a much better hotel for less money, it... More

You couldn't be any closer to the lake without being in it......this is the only reason we selected this hotel. The views were amazing. We booked a family room that had 4 beds and was separated for privacy with a bathroom in between the two rooms. The layout worked well and we had a full terrace balcony. The furnishings were...

Great location hotel with room view directly into the laguna. Kayak rental is also available. The rooms are spartan and the service is not at the right level. Great potential but not fully expressed ---------------//-------------------

Driving around the lake we noticed this hotel and stopped off to see if we could take some pictures of the view. Staff were really welcoming and a coffee turned into a lake tour and lunch. Prices seem very reasonable starting at around £40 for the cheapest room. There are plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the view so... More

Beautiful location at the southern edge of Bacalar overlooking the Laguna Bacalar. Some rooms are air conditioned; mine was not and I was perfectly content in a clean and comfortable room on the first (American 'second') floor. Not really in walking distance from the main square and Fort Bacalar, which certainly deserve a visit.
