Having traveled through different eco resorts in Mexico we had great expectations before visiting Ecotucan. We had red the reviews telling about insufficient water pressure in the showers, lack of illumination, limited wifi and electricity, but all this did not bother us at all. What shocked me at arrival were the complete broken mosquito nets placed on the cabanas' windows.... More

Villas ecotucan is an off the grid place to stay- all electricity is solar powered. Come with your phone charged and a flashlight to walk to your villa after dark. We only stayed one night , and it was fine. Right on the lagoon with kayaks to use, which was great. It's obviously ideal to stay right on the lagoon,... More

we booked in to stay for 4 nights, but left after one, as it wasn't quite what we were expecting. the grounds are lovely however the cabanas or "restaurant' are not on the lake as we expected but a bit of a walk away. the lake access is quite rocky as apposed to some other places where it's a soft...

We stayed in villa Ecotucan and enjoyed a walk through the nature and a sunrise kayaktour. The walk was very interesting. Jaqueline tells a lot about the life there and shows a lot of things you would not see by your own. The kayaktour was amazing. It was not very exhausting and the environment is so beautiful and quiet. Just... More

This was our first time visiting Laguna Bacalar, and we loved this place. Everyone was friendly and inviting, the food was great, the grounds were beautifully planted, and the cabanas were spacious, clean, and comfortable. It was a bit rustic, but that was exactly what we were hoping for. We went on a kayaking tour of Laguna Bacalar with Gunnar... More

We don't expect luxury in the middle of a jungle, but this place is really spartan. Good that we brought flashlights, lighting is sparse. Rutty, pot holed, single lane dirt road of 1 km to get to hotel. Homelike prepared dinner was good.

I stayed for about a week at Villas Ecotucan recently and overall, it was a disappointment. There is so much potential here, and it could be much more comfortable and inviting with just a few inexpensive updates. For example, the stairs from the water up to the dock are extremely slippery and dangerous (saw one little boy fall). There were... More

Really liked this place. Set in a very remote location next to a lagoon it was the perfect place for a few days. The staff were brilliant and attentive whilst the accommodation was also of a very high quality. Individual bungalows are spread out throughout the site providing lots of privacy. The bungalows themselves are also really nice. Made of... More

Great place to stay in the jungles by the lagoon. Very close to the town. For those without a car there is a restaurant near by. This is not a place for those expecting hotel amenities and services. Cabanas are big but the beds are very basic and not comfortable. Electrical sockets in the rooms are 12V. There is no... More
