₹ 6,958+
Overview Reviews
Located in Bacalar, Casa Corazon is within a 5-minute drive of Cenote Cocalitos and Fort of San Felipe. Free self parking is available onsite.
5.4 Okay
Cons: The room doesn’t have AC and rooms service as well
5.8 Okay
Pros: Great for swimming in the lagoon. A really nice pier with hammocks.
Cons: The size of the room was ok but the bathroom so small that when you entered the bathroom and wanted to get to the toilet you had to step into the shower to close the door. And in the shower hairs of previous guests on the floor and on the walls! The light switches were filthy and the doors disgustingly covered with dirt. 10 minutes of cleaning would make such a difference! Payment was taken from the credit card even before we arrived but still didnt send the invoice. I guess it will be a struggle although they promised to send it yesterday! The still didnt....
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The location is pretty good.
Cons: The place is nothing like what is advertised. The rooms are below average but charged at above average. There is mould and cracks in the walls, the curtains, pillows and sheets were dirty. The floor was so dirty that your feet turn black from walking around. One of our friends found a worm in the yoghurt they gave for breakfast. There is nothing available on site including no drinking water. The bathrooms are terribly designed. Every bad review that has been provided by other guests is all true. It is a hostel disguised as a hotel. We ended up leaving after a night and booking somewhere else and getting a refund.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location and lagoon palapas were nice to hang out in.
Cons: This hotel literally offers the bare minimum. No A/C, which is not notes anywhere online. Our toilet had NO SEAT. Our door frame was hanging by one nail. Cute place but very neglected.
4.6 Okay
Cons: When we arrived we didn't have pillow covers which for ours they told us would be coming but then ended up with excuse of just have a few laundry service in all Bacalar for all hotels Also the pillows were all broken and excuse was they were washed and rooms on first floor as you pay more have better pillows As well internet would not work in room unless the give U a secret passcode which the ladies are not supposed to give you English was not really spoken Excuses over excuses They take advantage of lovely location but price not worth money
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: NOTHING. Even the dock to the lagun is not private, noisy, not romantic at All. RUN FROM THIS PLACE.
Cons: - Price : OVERPRICED. You can find a better place in front of the lagun even less expensive. - Dirty room : dead mosquitos on bed, dirty sheets, - Odours : unpleasant smell (sewer backup) - Noise : not soundproof - Dock to lagun : not private at all. LOT OF CHILDRENS not from the hotel playing and making lot of noises DON’T recommend at all. Not rest, disgusting, not nice people. Employees do not speak English. Bacalar is a great and romantic place but staying at this hotel is totally out of what we expected.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: This is the second time I visit this hotel, the first time was a couple of years ago and I can confirm is in heavy decay, the rooms now feel more like a hostel (the even placed an extra bed with a very poor quality base on the room), the mosquito net was broken, the fan made an awful noise, the pillows feel very old and with the lining all ball-shaped, even the towels they gave us had holes in them!! The amenities used to be artesanal and now they are poor (kind of motel) quality. On the outside areas they have broken sun-beds... it was just awful, the hole experience made me feel sad and ripped off

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice central location in the heart of Bacalar, lovely small hotel
6.7 Good
Pros: Recepcionist tried to charge twice as much. Any questions asked he did not know. He said he was new.
Cons: I was expecting king size bed. It was supposed to be a de luxe suite. Bedroom very small
6.3 Good
Pros: Comfy bed and nice toiletries
Cons: Rooms are based around a courtyard, you could hear everything from your room, people coming and going, staff talking. Kept getting woken up through the night with people coming in in the early hours and staff being noisy from 7am. Breakfast was average. Breakfast was also served in the courtyard so you could hear the staff noisily setting up from 7am and people eating throughout the morning. Would not recommend staying here.
7.1 Good
Pros: Very stylish, cool room and very clean. The breakfast was excellent and the terrace perfect to chill out.
Cons: The lady selling tours had no clue about the content of said tours and we paid European price (£200 per night not on the water) for a room where there was no hot water for a shower and no water pressure in the bath. Hotel manager incredibly helpful within his power, as couldn’t be fixed as a national holiday but owner offered a coffee each in recompense for us not being able to shower in our room which was an insult.
1.0 Poor
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Smells bad not nice at all
4.0 Okay
Cons: We couldn’t sleep because the room was super noisy. All conversations from anyone outside were heard; noise from kitchen at 5am went straight to room; there was a drill or something like that from 5 am as well that didn’t let us sleep; room was super cold without additional blankets
7.1 Good
Pros: Decorated beautifully, bed comfortable, nice size rooms
Cons: Not enough options to hang anything - including bath towels and wet costumes. Would be mice to have cozy blankets in the room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff, comfortable beds, great location (3 min walk to the central square)
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The hotel guard who was friendly and help us with our luggage as we were leaving since he was the only one arounb
Cons: Very bad experience. We didn’t feel in Mexico. No towels until 5pm, and they had a greasy smell. They front desk was not able to help us with anything. Not even a couple of ice cubes. The hotel is super noisy, the staff was so loud that I felt like in a local market!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Little green paradise. The whole property is very well maintained and the cabins are really comfortable. The Laguna is a natural reserve, with no dangerous animals whatsoever. AC works very well. The service is outstanding, the team is really making sure you are having a great stay. Also the food is delicious and there are many options on the menu.
Cons: Some may be rebuked by the slightly salty water in the shower, not an issue for us
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: We were really looking forward to staying here, but from the moment we arrived it didn't feel like a very welcoming place. There was just something off about it, maybe because there was no manager to oversee things and the two employees didn't seem that interested in having guests. No one else was staying at the hotel, and we were in fact left alone at night on the premises in what seemed like the middle of nowhere. We had come to see manatees but were told that there was only a 20% chance of seeing one, and that was only if we booked a 4 hour boat tour. I don't like to leave a negative review, but El Chital seemed kind of neglected and didn't live up to the photos we saw on the web.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice place with a cool and young team! You need a car to get there, because it's in the middle of nowhere but then you have a garden eden. Nice details and cool cabañas with air conditioning and comfortable beds. The young team is very helpful and the restaurant is delicious! You can swim, take the cayaks and do stand-up paddling for free. Even the pool is nice. Very cool details! When you arrive there is one person with a carrying wagon for the luggage. We could even stay some hours more than the usual checkout. Highly recommend and thanks again to the team!
Cons: Our friends had some ants in their cabaña, unfortunately even after some insecticide they where there. But our cabaña was fine! Even no mosquitoes. Only the shower was soso, salty water (I assume from the laguna) and the toilet wasn't very strong ;-)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing experience, kayaking in Laguna Guerrero... The food prepared by the young chef was tasteful and delicious. We feared for mosquitoes and insects but that was not an issue at all. We enjoyed the solitude and tranquility of the place.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: excellent cook Alexander,very nice presentation of plates,quick and efficient.Free kayaks.
Cons: Far from everything,no enough of drinking water,only 2 small bottles for 2 persons per 24 hours,no possibility to buy more.Very isolated.The lake is muddy,no swimming in there.no fridge in the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very far away from any point of interest in the city but lovely and very calm atmosphere. Really recommend that accommodation
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Can borrow kayaks and bicycles for free, good massage, food is one of the best we tried and good price, staff is very friendly and helpful, very nice views over the lagoon, comfortable seats and benches all around the premises, a house covered in mosquito nets so you can sit quietly, little pool, very clean, nice view from the cabin. Location is very dark, nice for viewing the stars. Focus on environmentally friendly solutions, for instance the water and lighting.
Cons: We stayed 3 days, one afternoon there were a few people with loud music, the hotel could have asked them to lower the music because it is a place for relaxing. A tip: Could put a sign to indicate where the reception is (which is the restaurant). That is a bit tricky to find when just arriving.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: People aren’t nice
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel consists of fabulously located blockhouses in the jungle at Laguna Guerrero, with a very decent restaurant. Kayaking on the lake and watching sunset are some of the best attractions.
Cons: The people at the restaurant sometimes are in over their heads. They play those false Jazzy-style renderings of old rock hits which you would only expect in a cheap shopping mall and repeat them over and over and over .... As if the thousands of good old Caribbean-style songs or the original good old rock hits wouldn't make for good background music.

Pros: Value for money. Clean. Good breakfast.
3.0 Mediocre

Few hours later we spotted wifi password on reception desk so we tried to connect but network was available only outside our room - no one told us how to use hot water (you have to turn on boiler for specific amount of time) - loud surrounding because of birds that woke us in the very morning
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The bed was reasonably comfy and the room was nice and clean. Appreciated the onsite free parking also.
Cons: Shower was pretty damn cold seeing as the hot water seemed to have run out. The lock for the door took me a good 5 minutes to open, was extremely hard and fiddly.
7.1 Good
Pros: Spacious room.
Cons: Very noisy as windows are not isolated. Other travellers were extremely noisy at midnight and 7am at reception and during breakfast, but hotel staff didn’t do anything. We had to go out and ask them to be quiet.
8.3 Excellent

7.0 Good
Pros: Bungalows were very nice and clean
Cons: The restaurant wasnt good. All around The food was bad
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in a few places around Bacalar and this definitely has the best facilities in Bacalar. The private palapas on the lagoon are unmatched, and there is table service. It is perfect if you plan on relaxing all day for a few days. The palapa areas on the lagoon are spacious and there is great food served all day at very reasonable prices. Special mention to Eppy who made our stay very relaxing and kept the cold beers coming!
Cons: The bed is not the comfiest and there are lots of mosquitos which still manage to bite even with the mosquito net covering us. There is also no flushing toilet, so that mightn't be everyone's cup of tea.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is an absolute paradise!!! My fiance and I were extremely happy with our stay and were already planning our next visit while we were still there. The facilities are up to very good standard and they try to be as ecological and sustainable as possible. The staff is super friendly both in the hotel and the restaurant. Private outdoor showers are awesome!!! The deck on the lake and all the facilities around it including swings, hammocks and free-to-use kayaks are excellent. We were lucky to have visited during low season because it was very quiet and relaxing.
Cons: Nothing that I can fault directly to the property. The only thing I will mention is that the road to get to the property is not up to the highest standard. A 4x4 vehicle would have no problem but any regular car could struggle, especially if it has been raining; just something to be aware of.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very warm and gracious staff, nothing is a burden all are eager to give you a good holiday. Direct access to the beautiful lagoon so you can avoid the public access, serene and restful I wish I can stay there forever.
Cons: A bit far from town centre but it is all worth it, also the path leading to the entrance (1km) is quite rugged.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We liked a lot the bathrooms and the view from the kiosk in the lake. The Staff was super friendly and helped arrange a small surprise dinner for my partner.
Cons: It is not so close to the city and there is no public transportation available.
6.0 Good
Pros: Quiet place with amazing view on the lagune, nice breakfast and free kayak. Ecological management of the hotel!
Cons: Nice place but clearly do not worst the price (140 USD/night), food of the restaurant disappointing, mosquito nest dirty in the room, place to eat on the lagune very nice but again dirty and not well maintained.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Location on the water is amazing. The parc itself is beautiful and the beachfront with the pier and pagode stretching out into the lake is amazing. The outside shower is nice too.
Cons: We left a day early because we didn’t want to stay here. It was a real disappointment I out otherwise amazing Mexico trip. The bungalow was sub basic. Be aware that they have eco toilets (they don’t flush, everything just stays where you ehrm dropped it). This for me was a reason not to go, but it didn’t say on the site. Also the bungalow was really badly kept: half of the lights were broken, the hammocks had so many holes in them it was useless (we are still scratching!) and everything was basically very dirty. The restaurant was very very basic, so don’t expect much. The staff was very helpful though, but note that they do not speak English! No one does at the ‘resort’ If you are thinking about going here, I really suggest you don’t : look else elsewhere, because there is much much much beter value for money available in the area. But if you still think you should go for the amazing beachfront: book with an option for reimbursement (you’ll thank me later). Because with all this above, we left early and resort manager didn’t care. So again: don’t go here.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Location was Ok
Cons: I was treated with complete disrespect by all staff.... I couldn't even get a bottle of wine for my evening dinner..... Abysmal.....
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is amazing!!!
5.0 Okay
Pros: First of all, you are just close to the lagoon. You may swim, sunbathe on the bridge or take a free kayak and explore the marvellous lake. Secondly the restaurant is right before the bridge and the breakfast we had included was truly tasty. The lady at the reception can speak English so explained everything and welcomed us with free margarita. Lunch came for us to our wooden sunbeds so it was a pure relax. Very calm place in general, even though there is an open building construction just behind the fence.
Cons: First of all, the road! I am still truly astonished my car managed to reach the property - it is around 1km bumpy, muddy road through the jungle. Once reached, you are doomed to be here (want to visit Bacalar? 10km distance, not for a walk). The villa we got is opened by...padlock and bathroom by...staple. The whole bathroom is outside and it is sooo eco that we don't have sewers here - you can use scobs to cover your sh*t (I do not have to tell you the smell). In the whole room, there was only a one lightbulb. No sleeping table, forget about Wi-Fi. Everything is visible from the outside - not able to cover any blinds.

6.3 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly. The pool is nice and kept clean everyday. Breakfast was good, delicious pancakes. Room was clean and had air con and mosquito nets.
Cons: The room was quiet dark, not a lot of sunlight could get it. WiFi was only in the reception area and didn’t always work well. It was a bit minimum for a 3-star boutique hotel.
7.1 Good
Pros: Lovely garden, sitting areas, friendly helpful staff Good breakfast
Cons: A bit out of town , needed taxi to get to lake, or a car .rooms smelt a bit mysty
7.9 Good
Pros: The garden and pool area are very beautiful! Staff is very friendly though they cannot speak English at all. You can rent bikes which is quite helpful as the place is a bit far from the city centre. Drinking water + WiFi available. Would come again for the beautiful and relaxed garden.
Cons: When it was raining heavily water was dropping through the roof onto one of the beds (room no. 5). Breakfast as in most Mexican accomodations was very simple, so we brought some stuff of our own. The TV was running during breakfast which we found disturbing and annoying, however local guests seemed to like it.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff..morning breakfast
Cons: Location
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The originality of the rooms and the hotel layout, the breakfast room, the availability of bicycles, the swimming pool, helpful staff, the objects, paintings on the hummingbird theme...endless images,
Cons: The breakfast was indifferent, tasteless toast, limited fruit and one had to pay extra for eggs. Too 'rigid' compared to how laid back the whole place is - for me if breakfast is offered it ought to make you sart the day feeling great.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful garden, very tranquil setting, a bit of paradise! Spent lots of nights enjoying the swinging chairs, and the covered dining area is lovely!
Cons: Paid extra for a room with a kitchen so we could cook for ourselves Christmas Day when everything is closed. The hotel counted a room with 2 queen beds as equivalent. They found us another place to stay when I complained a few days consecutively, but it was at a hostel, so we decided to continue our trip onwards a bit earlier.

Pros: Perfect location in the center of town but guiet! I stayed in the Africanos suite. ( The terrace was the perfect place to sit and read in peace)
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a great stay. The staff in particular were exceptional. Every person we dealt with was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. One even helped us book an Airbnb after our stay because this hostel was booked out when we wanted to extend. The kitchen facilities were also brilliant.
Cons: The pressure of the shower wasn't great.
6.7 Good
Pros: We had a big apartment with HUGE beds Lovely people Good location, nearby all the bars... but next time I would opt for something actually at the lake. Cause well, thats why your there Loved the Bacalar vibe though
Cons: Day one: No water (so shower or toilet flushing) in the evening. They said it would take half an hour, but well... those Mexican times, nothing takes just half an hour - it lasted 5 hours... I did take a shower at another apartment, 5 minute walking distant. It was a bit of a dirty place (good shower though). It looked like they just did some repairs but didn’t cleaned after. Cementdust or something everywhere. They should have compensated us with free breakfast or something, but they didn’t do anything. Having no water a whole evening is just... bad. When the shower did work: it was bad! Low pressure. Just one sad little stream (and yes, this was when the water worked). Loud noises in the morning
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and clean room. Beautiful place. The staff kind and helpful, speaking English. Good location, 2 minutes walk from the lagoon. In the middle of the town, close to banks, restaurants and supermarket. There is a great restaurant in the front of the hotel and 10 % discount in it if you show them the key of the room. We had a great time at the hotel. Very recommend!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good location, nice staff and good value for money
Cons: Very loud at night: disrespectful guests, music outside
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect, you have access to everything within a short walk. Our private room was wonderful and very clean. The bed was very comfortable, the decoration was so nice and the room included a small kitchen and a fridge. The price is great for what you get. This is our new fav spot in Bacalar. My husband and I loved the fact that is an eco-friendly hotel and they promote recycling and use organic products. We are really thankful with the personnel because we asked if our room could be ready a little bit before the check in because we were attending a wedding, and they did! 100% Recommended!
Cons: The internet connection was a little bit weak but it didn't stop us from enjoying our stay.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location
Cons: It is old
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Big and very nice room with a nice design which suits to the atmosphere of the town, no problem with the early check in (free of charge), breakfasts which wasn’t listed while making the reservation - it was a nice surprise for us. Perfect location - in the heart of the lovely town Bacalar and still very close to the lake.
Cons: Problem with hot water in the shower, only one toilet for three rooms which can be small problem during the morning peak hours, kitchen a bit dirty (however room and toilet was super clean).

Pros: The location is outstanding, right on the lagoon.
6.7 Good
Pros: The view was fabulous and that’s why we came there! The boat trip was so cool. Just surreal! And super funky!
Cons: Ok, not enough electrical outlets for each room! And the doors slamming and ants. Friendly ants, however! Overall, we loved it!
5.0 Okay
Pros: The location of the property was very nice overlooking the laguna. This was the most positive thing, the staffwere very nice as well and helpful.
Cons: The property is really outdated, the hotel has serious maintenance issues; broken stairs, pool with no filter, fences broken, some stairways are even blocked with yellow lining, the rooms are big but are outdated! No airco and some rooms have a refrigrator and some don’t have one. We traveled with our 2 year old, major risks! i would not recommend a stay here! They need to invest in some maintenance...

6.7 Good
Pros: Location was great, view was amazing and being able to book a tour of the lagoon from the hotel and leave at the dock below was very convenient.
Cons: No AC and there were little bugs in the beds at night (not bed bugs), but little nats or something that we were trying to get rid of and was uncomfortable to sleep.
6.0 Good
Pros: I have stayed here before and it's a beautiful property on the outside with a stunning pool and view of the lagoon. One can swim or take a boat tour of the beautiful area right from the location.
Cons: For the cost, I think offering breakfast would be nice and set a tone for creating comfort and friendliness. The rooms are very bright at night from just having shutters and a light curtain. But bringing eye covers address that. It's right along a road, so one can hear cars. Bringing ear plugs helps with that. .
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Beds were comfy, views were perfect.
Cons: Bathrooms need new tile.

7.7 Good
Pros: Clean, modern decor, nice pool, and the location was nice.
Cons: My bed sheet had a hole in it. And we didn't have a place to hang our towels.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Check in was speedy and accommodating and staff very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean but small and tastefully decorated. Beds were comfortable, air conditioning worked well and shower was hot and had good pressure. We were there for only one night so we did not use the pool but the area and pool were clean. The location was convenient for our purpose of catching the ferry to San Pedro and shopping for food for Belize. It is close to the waterfront square, right out the back of the parking area. This was great for dinner with various vendors. Parking was indoors and safe. I also had to visit the pharmacy after dark. I was and felt safe walking the 3-4 blocks alone as my husband was in the room with a fever.
Cons: Nothing. All my expectations were surpassed. Beware of locals surrounding you at the ferry dock with the impression of being helpful. I had $900 stolen from my purse.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Clean, modern, well functioning facilities. Good shower. Good location.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed one night before catching a ferry. The hotel is clean, rooms are modern and clean. Short walk to the terminal for ferry to Belize. Staff were very professional. We didn’t use the pool but it looked fine.
Cons: Rooms face inward to an atrium where the pool is. There is a large frosted glass panel to the interior and no exterior windows, so there is no natural light in the room and it feels quite stuffy quite quickly. The toilet didn’t flush properly, and the shower was only tepid.
6.3 Good
Pros: It’s location - great for the port Plus it’s clean and safe - so does the job if you’re just passing through
Cons: THE POOL! It’s pictured like It’s outdoor but it’s indoor... which wasn’t what we wanted at all! Plus the rooms are clean but really noisy. The man on reception was really helpful but the other staff that we met were very disengaged I
4.0 Okay

Pros: Nice central location in the heart of Bacalar, lovely small hotel
6.7 Good
Pros: Recepcionist tried to charge twice as much. Any questions asked he did not know. He said he was new.
Cons: I was expecting king size bed. It was supposed to be a de luxe suite. Bedroom very small
6.3 Good
Pros: Comfy bed and nice toiletries
Cons: Rooms are based around a courtyard, you could hear everything from your room, people coming and going, staff talking. Kept getting woken up through the night with people coming in in the early hours and staff being noisy from 7am. Breakfast was average. Breakfast was also served in the courtyard so you could hear the staff noisily setting up from 7am and people eating throughout the morning. Would not recommend staying here.
7.1 Good
Pros: Very stylish, cool room and very clean. The breakfast was excellent and the terrace perfect to chill out.
Cons: The lady selling tours had no clue about the content of said tours and we paid European price (£200 per night not on the water) for a room where there was no hot water for a shower and no water pressure in the bath. Hotel manager incredibly helpful within his power, as couldn’t be fixed as a national holiday but owner offered a coffee each in recompense for us not being able to shower in our room which was an insult.
1.0 Poor
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Smells bad not nice at all

7.1 Good
Pros: Decorated beautifully, bed comfortable, nice size rooms

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The hotel guard who was friendly and help us with our luggage as we were leaving since he was the only one arounb
Cons: Very bad experience. We didn’t feel in Mexico. No towels until 5pm, and they had a greasy smell. They front desk was not able to help us with anything. Not even a couple of ice cubes. The hotel is super noisy, the staff was so loud that I felt like in a local market!

6.3 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly. The pool is nice and kept clean everyday. Breakfast was good, delicious pancakes. Room was clean and had air con and mosquito nets.
Cons: The room was quiet dark, not a lot of sunlight could get it. WiFi was only in the reception area and didn’t always work well. It was a bit minimum for a 3-star boutique hotel.
7.1 Good
Pros: Lovely garden, sitting areas, friendly helpful staff Good breakfast
Cons: A bit out of town , needed taxi to get to lake, or a car .rooms smelt a bit mysty
7.9 Good
Pros: The garden and pool area are very beautiful! Staff is very friendly though they cannot speak English at all. You can rent bikes which is quite helpful as the place is a bit far from the city centre. Drinking water + WiFi available. Would come again for the beautiful and relaxed garden.
Cons: When it was raining heavily water was dropping through the roof onto one of the beds (room no. 5). Breakfast as in most Mexican accomodations was very simple, so we brought some stuff of our own. The TV was running during breakfast which we found disturbing and annoying, however local guests seemed to like it.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff..morning breakfast
Cons: Location
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The originality of the rooms and the hotel layout, the breakfast room, the availability of bicycles, the swimming pool, helpful staff, the objects, paintings on the hummingbird theme...endless images,
Cons: The breakfast was indifferent, tasteless toast, limited fruit and one had to pay extra for eggs. Too 'rigid' compared to how laid back the whole place is - for me if breakfast is offered it ought to make you sart the day feeling great.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful garden, very tranquil setting, a bit of paradise! Spent lots of nights enjoying the swinging chairs, and the covered dining area is lovely!
Cons: Paid extra for a room with a kitchen so we could cook for ourselves Christmas Day when everything is closed. The hotel counted a room with 2 queen beds as equivalent. They found us another place to stay when I complained a few days consecutively, but it was at a hostel, so we decided to continue our trip onwards a bit earlier.
Hotel de Cabañas Ecologicas El Chital - Bacalar - Bedroom

8.6 Excellent (178 reviews)
₹ 7,488+
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Little green paradise. The whole property is very well maintained and the cabins are really comfortable. The Laguna is a natural reserve, with no dangerous animals whatsoever. AC works very well. The service is outstanding, the team is really making sure you are having a great stay. Also the food is delicious and there are many options on the menu.
Cons: Some may be rebuked by the slightly salty water in the shower, not an issue for us
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: We were really looking forward to staying here, but from the moment we arrived it didn't feel like a very welcoming place. There was just something off about it, maybe because there was no manager to oversee things and the two employees didn't seem that interested in having guests. No one else was staying at the hotel, and we were in fact left alone at night on the premises in what seemed like the middle of nowhere. We had come to see manatees but were told that there was only a 20% chance of seeing one, and that was only if we booked a 4 hour boat tour. I don't like to leave a negative review, but El Chital seemed kind of neglected and didn't live up to the photos we saw on the web.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice place with a cool and young team! You need a car to get there, because it's in the middle of nowhere but then you have a garden eden. Nice details and cool cabañas with air conditioning and comfortable beds. The young team is very helpful and the restaurant is delicious! You can swim, take the cayaks and do stand-up paddling for free. Even the pool is nice. Very cool details! When you arrive there is one person with a carrying wagon for the luggage. We could even stay some hours more than the usual checkout. Highly recommend and thanks again to the team!
Cons: Our friends had some ants in their cabaña, unfortunately even after some insecticide they where there. But our cabaña was fine! Even no mosquitoes. Only the shower was soso, salty water (I assume from the laguna) and the toilet wasn't very strong ;-)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing experience, kayaking in Laguna Guerrero... The food prepared by the young chef was tasteful and delicious. We feared for mosquitoes and insects but that was not an issue at all. We enjoyed the solitude and tranquility of the place.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: excellent cook Alexander,very nice presentation of plates,quick and efficient.Free kayaks.
Cons: Far from everything,no enough of drinking water,only 2 small bottles for 2 persons per 24 hours,no possibility to buy more.Very isolated.The lake is muddy,no swimming in there.no fridge in the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very far away from any point of interest in the city but lovely and very calm atmosphere. Really recommend that accommodation
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Can borrow kayaks and bicycles for free, good massage, food is one of the best we tried and good price, staff is very friendly and helpful, very nice views over the lagoon, comfortable seats and benches all around the premises, a house covered in mosquito nets so you can sit quietly, little pool, very clean, nice view from the cabin. Location is very dark, nice for viewing the stars. Focus on environmentally friendly solutions, for instance the water and lighting.
Cons: We stayed 3 days, one afternoon there were a few people with loud music, the hotel could have asked them to lower the music because it is a place for relaxing. A tip: Could put a sign to indicate where the reception is (which is the restaurant). That is a bit tricky to find when just arriving.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: People aren’t nice
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel consists of fabulously located blockhouses in the jungle at Laguna Guerrero, with a very decent restaurant. Kayaking on the lake and watching sunset are some of the best attractions.
Cons: The people at the restaurant sometimes are in over their heads. They play those false Jazzy-style renderings of old rock hits which you would only expect in a cheap shopping mall and repeat them over and over and over .... As if the thousands of good old Caribbean-style songs or the original good old rock hits wouldn't make for good background music.
