Hotel Laguna Bacalar
Ranked #11 of 11 Hotels in Bacalar
Reviewed April 14, 2012

The lagoon is amazing, but this place needs a lot of work, it was probably amazing when built in1972. There are very few other choices for hotels in Bacalar, would make a better day trip from a near by place.

Very old hotel and very bad sound isolation. Can cearly hear others' talking on the balcony. I would stay in Chetumal instead if I visit the area again. Anyway, very nice view of Laguna Bacalar.

Reasonable price with a terrific view. The hotel is older but will always have a timelss view of the the beatiful colors of Lake Bacalar. It's a good spring board location to see the village of Bacalar, Chetumal and the ruins lining 186.
The restaurant is adequate and very affordable and close enough to Cenote Azul and Bacalar town so you can easily not feel like its the only choice.
Not much English spoken here so be prepared with a few restaurant and hotel terms.

Room Tip: No matter what time of year you won't need airconditioning so save the $$

The Lagoon is the most beautiful water I have ever seen. But, the hotel is very old with no personality. If you don't like insects all over the place this is not the hotel for you. We went on a boat tour which made me forget about the accommodations. The Hotels front desk associates and etc, were very nice, cordial and kind. The food is not the best so make other plans for meals. The hotel really needs a complete mlake over. I hope this is helpful info.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel in the area. They may be better!

Read the reviews and the place sounded OK. We rented a car and got the hell out of God forsaken Cancun...we pulled into Bacalar before dark and couldn't believe our good luck..this hotel is a little jewel perched high-a-top a lake that must have a half-a-dozen shades of blue on its warm, crystal clear waters...this place is old-school Mexico...neat little bar, half decent restaurant (although I much prefer the Cenote Azul diner about a mile away) and enough charm to always want to come back...my only complaint is it gets a little noisy as it's popular with passerbys stopping for a cold one but the bar closes at 9/pm and it's all quiet by 10/pm...

Room Tip: Grab a bungalow if you can afford it or take a top floor room

What a great little hotel. Art Deco style on the side of one of the most gorgeous lakes that changes colors all day long. Martha and her staff were fabulous and I really enjoyed my stay. It was close to Chetumal where you can even take a ferry to Belize. The rooms were charming and the little balcony overlooking the lake was a great place to just relax and take it all in. I'll be back!

I've stayed here many times over the years and I always come away just a bit more peaceful and relaxed than when I arrived. I agree with the review of Quintanillaschmidt. This place is quirky, not fancy but it has great views, neat little corner spots every where you turn and I always love sitting on my little balcony taking in the beautiful sunset. I have always found my room to be clean and the meals in the restaurant adequate enough to satisfy. This ain't the Ritz people, so just take a few breaths, relax and enjoy.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the cabana rooms and not in the 'main' hotel area
