We really had a GREAT TIME!! First time to Bacalar - probably won't go back. Been there done that - but it was a nice trip and the hotel was was clean, great breakfast, nice pool, no complaints - centrally located - they have a fridge in the main lobby if you want to store food or beverages. Blackouts happen pretty regularly in the town and I mean whole town goes black - but not for long. Our friends went the week after we did - blackout!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Perhaps it wasn't as luxurious as some we stayed in but the rooms were clean, spacious and had air conditioning. Sitting by the pool with a cold beverage was a daily activity. It is close enough to city centre to make a nice walk. You can catch a local softball game just a couple blocks away. The lake front is also well within walking distance and we went every day as well. There are good restaurants all within 15 minutes walk and you can rent bikes if you want. They offer tours of the beautiful lagoon, which we would highly recommend. It is a very fun tour and so interesting. The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. We would stay here again, no hesitation. We felt safe and well looked after!
The place is quiet, nice and clean, the pool area is very nice, the staff is friendly and gentle. The breakfast has the traditional Mexican homemade style. I love the tortillas and the Mexican sausage I want to go back there soon !!!
We stayed for two nights the place was super clean and had everything we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool and awesome breakfast were great bonuses. I would recommend and hope to visit again soon myself.
Hotel Bacienda is a clean and tidy hotel within walking distance to Central Bacalar. The staff were lovely and the free breakfast was more than satisfactory. The bed was also one of the comfiest I stayed in during my time in Mexico, including a 4 star resort in Tulum!
Nice clean rooms and pool. Location ok. A 5 min walk to Centro and Balsinaro municipal. Comfortable beds. Breakfast ok so for the price: Perfect! Try the good street food just across the street. Tacueria Mucho. Great food cheap. Quesadila or Torta (sandwich) 30$.
The good points are - the price - the location not far away from city center - it was clean Now the bad things. The breakfast was horrible. They have only two different things to eat to choose from and both weren't good. Coffee is not drinkable. Our room did not have a real window, pretty dark inside. bathroom needs to be updated. WIFI does only work inside the reception building. It was good enough to stay there for one night but i was happy to leave the next day as well.
My family and I went for vacation and we did not have a reservation. We found this hotel on last minute and in reasonable price 700 MXP here are the things that went well - good location around 10 minutes to the laguna and center where is the park - the rooms were clean, our room had TV and air conditionary - It has outside pool the only thing I didn't like was the Breakfast. It was included but the service was very slow. there were a lot of people and only one coffe machine and did not work very well. the wifi only works in the front desk
Better than many other budget hotel beds/pillows. Shower/bath was same. Must remember to turn on the water heater in the am to get a hot shower. Was quiet and east walk to the centro. Excellent restaurant there on the opposite side (didn't write down the name). Not a beach town but quiet nice town. would go back to explore more. Breakfast included. Scrambled eggs/fruit. Very nice. Local attraction..Lagoon of 7 colors...do it!!! But use a recommended licensed tour. We didn't and although it was a great experience on a small catamaran the agreed upon price was bumped up considerably after. Course we could have refused but live and learn.
A reasonable option. A business-like welcome rather than super friendly but OK nonetheless. Clean rooms, about 10 minutes or so walk to the main square. Breakfast was included but it was nothing to get excited about - scrambled eggs and a tiny portion of refried beans. One morning I was mildly amused to see the reception staff tucking into the same but slightly bigger portions, with the addition of a bowl of fruit salad. Hire bikes available but they deparately need some maintenace. Better to get a bike somewhere else if you can find one.
