This was our second stay at the Mayan Beach Garden Inn and it was even better the second time. In fact, it was so good, we had a hard time leaving to go see other sites. We did go into Chetumal and explored for a day, and we then hurried back to this paradise. We stayed a week, the food... More

Wow. It went by much to quickly I wish I'd stayed longer. Whats not to love about your eco friendly world.

"Out of this world" is something that all cooks aspire too. I will make sure Fabiola knows you said this. I just hope it translates well into Spanish! I know your goal is to someday have a place of your own and join us in Paradise. Thanks for the conversation and historical insights into MesoAmerica. We will ponder your advise... More

I really hate to give Mayan Beach Gardens a great rating only because it could encourage more visitors. When you are here you feel like this is "your" place. They only have 7 rooms and even when it is full there is never a crowd. It takes a drive to get there but in our opinion it is definitely worth... More

Thank you so much for finding us here. Especially after so many years vacationing on the beach in Mexico, it means a lot to hear from you that it is worth it. We had some windy days earlier in the week, but its now calming down again and guests went out the other day and saw everything - Turtles, Eagle... More

We spent a week at the Mayan beach Garden and loved it. If you are looking for a remote place with great people and great food than this is it. yes, the beach was full of plastic at times (depending on the currents), which is disturbing, but that is how it is at all very remote beaches I have visited...

Your intelligent son was a pleasure to have visit us and as well two wonderful parents. Thank you for mentioning refuse, reuse, and recycle in your mentioning of plastic. I think when you were here I was still ruminating over my 2014 item I was going to refuse and I've since decided it is Styrofoam. I hate it when it... More

We were so happy you came to our hotel during Semana Santa. I'm sorry you had to leave early. I would like to make one clarification, we do allow children during the months of May through November when we are less crowded and there are fewer people and therefore more space for them to run around and play.

We were in Bacalar in March and decided to check out this establishment. We had emailed the owners Kim/Marcia in advance as a heads up. The day we arrived was very windy. Marcia was not on site and Kim was just pulling out. Note: Cannot comment on the rooms as we were not staying there. Found the restaurant and Marten... More

Marcia is an unbelievable gracious host and her husband Kim is a hoot. Our balcony room was wonderful, with a great bed and just what we needed after a 14 bus ride from Chiapas and two hours in a hot collectivo. The breeze and gentle surf- perfect for deep sleep. Magnificent snorkeling if you know where to go. It's all... More

Thanks for writing such a kind review. Your photo from the Balcony rooms is the best photo I've seen from that location, congratulations. I think I'll emulate you. We really enjoyed your company, friendly smiles and love of nature here at the hotel. Please come back some day so we can visit some more and go snorkeling together. More

My grown family of 5 spent a week with Marcia & Kim, who own the Mayan Beach Garden. We had a GREAT time and plan to return.
