10/10 Exceptional

Great place to stay in Bacalar town.
A great place to stay. Good price and accessible to the town. DOes not have lagoon access but it certainly provides nice rooms, clean, comfortable, non pretentious. A lot lot better than any of the accommodations that I have tried in town, although unfortunately it is away from the water. Highly recommended.

2/10 Poor

Avoid - overpriced and much better options around
Poor value - room with no windows, paper thin walls to corridor and bathroom door is a joke. Terrible breakfast. Disengaged staff. Internet doesn't work in rooms, only in the lobby. Only positive is location. Definitely better options available in Bacalar - avoid!

8/10 Very good

me gustó la habitación, me parece un lugar excelente para descansar y aunque no hice uso de sus zonas comunes, me parece que son ideales para disfrutar de una lectura.

2/10 Poor

No buena experiencia
Hicimos una reserva que nos incluía desayuno continental y dos cenas gratis por lo que cuando pedimos nuestro desayuno nos dijeron que se habían cambiado por las cenas (sin bebidas) y no nos ofrecieron el servicio de desayuno! En la habitación nunca llegó la señal de WIFI. Por lo que refiere al hotel es adecuado para pasar una noche.
