After checking in with the Rancho Encantado Resort front desk to easily obtain my key, my group arrived into a beautiful walled and gated, night time tropical garden blooming with flowers. Upon entry to the main house, I was enchanted by the soft light, cleanliness and flowers accenting the incredibly lovely rooms. A thoughtful art collection reflecting the owner's love for Mexico met my eye no matter where I turned. I had found the tranquility and beauty that I was seeking to create for myself during my time at Laguna Bacalar.
This house is perfect for one, two couples or a small family group of 4 with children over 12 years old. The master bedroom is a romantic dream with comfortable king bed and huge tiled bathtub that can easily accommodate two. The water view is stunning. The second bedroom was as beautiful and cozy as well.
The kitchen is fully equipped however I enjoyed the restaurant located within the resort for meal service. I adapted well and quickly to resort living with easy access to great food and all resort services by purchasing an inexpensive day pass to enjoy the pool, jacuzzi, boat, kayak and paddle board rentals.
The majority of the time was spent relaxing on the waterfront patio in a hammock admiring the beautiful flowers and listing to the parrots chatter over my head. The respite from my hectic daily life was appreciated more than I can say. Thank you, Casa Estrella! I will dream of my return to your amazing home.
This house was perfect for our group of 5 friends vacationing together. We especially enjoyed lying around on the dock, the beautiful water, the kitchen that allowed us to cook much of our food, and the spaciousness of the property. There are so many places to hang out and rest-- a front dining area, a back dining/table area, a casita by the laguna, and the dock-- that we all were able to get some quite alone time when we wanted, and also had enough space for groups dinners together.
