Unless you are a hippie don't go to this place. You will stay in a sort of hostel, with a dirty kitchen and people playing guitar all night long. even the individual room doesn't guarantee your privacy given that there isn't any key to lock it. A nightmare if you are looking for a relaxing stay
Very relaxed, social place in an excellent location.
Good breakfast. Friendly staff and good environment for young families. Amazing location.
Little too alternative for me but not really a criticism.
fabulous location right on the lake. Owner was very helpful and friendly Fridge for use by guests. Trying very hard to be eco friendly Gardens well laid out and tidy lots of nearby restaurants
not enough seating or tables for number of guests breakfast was included but could have been much better for very little extra cost ie full pots of jam, some butter little pricy in comparison to other hostels and rooms are tiny
Very laid back hostel environment Use of boats Water side location
Difficult to read in the evening due to poor light.
Mauricio and the staff very friendly. and show great care and concern. The location was spectacular and lake Bacalar in sheer beauty alone is awesome. i would definitely recommend to others.
Nice Hostel Directly at the laguna, friendly Host, cosy atmosphere, fast wifi, free kajaks
Great place run by lovely people, I felt very welcome from the first second great location right by the lagoon
Very basic... For the young at heart... But the location makes up for everything
Lack of Hospitality
Location, nice People there
Dirty, it smells in the rooms,
Everyone from the owners to the guests were so friendly and helpful. The location is right on the lake and our room had a view out onto the jetty. Lovely breakfast in the morning and only a £2 taxi into the little town. One of the most beautiful and peaceful places I've ever been. You have to go!! :)
It's right on the lake, with a jetty from which to watch the spectacular sunset and moonrise. In the morning, we took a boat trip on the lake to watch the roseate spoonbills and the other exotic birds wake up.
It was very hard to find, as there was no sign - only a blue turtle design on the wall. The accommodation was basic, but this doesn't pretend to be a luxury hotel.
Really layed back backpacker style hostel/guesthouse. We came by car, and rented the downstairs room in the main house. It was HUGE. Tons of storage, king size bed. Use of pedal boats for free, use of kitchen any time of day. Carla and Mauricio our hosts, were easy going, and Mauricio took us sailing around the Lagoon for a very reasonabble price. Gorgeous birds on the island out front!
the lakefront location was beautiful, sunrise on the dock was magical. The couple running the place were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was simple, fresh and delicious.
It felt like we were a bit old for the youthful atmosphere. We stayed in the cabin at the back - and there was a terrible sewer smell when the neighbour flushed their toilet. Lots of tents and I think that would be a better way to enjoy the park like setting.
Just perfect, on our next visit to Bacalar we will definately stop here again.
Great location, very chilled out atmosphere. Not for everyone but suited us fine! Wish we could've stayed more than 1 night
Cute, little place just right in front of the beautiful lagoon of Bacalar (paddling boat can be used free of charge!!!) Very nice staff (they even send my favorite Bikini back home after I forgot it there...). Perfect place to relax a few days enjoying the lovely scenery .. and if you really don't feel like going anywhere, you can even share lunch / dinner and a nice discussion with the lovely hosts !
Bacalar City being quite small
Nice view of the lake
Staff needs to be more attentive, breakfast is a joke.
Nice and friendly dog;-)
Laguna Bacalar was not as beautiful as expected...but that has nothing to do with Casa Tortuga,they told us it was because of the Hurricane a few weeks ago...
