“Beautiful Ocean Views”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

We sat on the balcony overlooking the ocean and relaxed as we watched many bird species fly overhead. One never gets tired of watching the spectacle. The rooms were basic but spotlessly clean. Roger was very accommodating and spoke good English. A good base for flamingo and birding tours.

Room Tip: get the front room with private balcony if possible.

This was my second visit to the Hotel Punta Ponto. What a wonderful hotel. The rooms are large and spotless, with television and air conditioning. Roger and everyone there did everything they could to make sure I enjoyed my visit. A formation of flamingos flying in the late afternoon sun helped make the visit special. I know I'll be back next year. Thanks for the beautiful memories.

This is a beautiful hotel with a view of the ocean... Roger and his fmaily were incredibly welcoming and always available to me with advice or an interesting conversation! The place feels fresh, clean and airy and they have all the amenities you are after with Aircon, wifi, tv etc.

I would definitely recommend this hotel!

The owner and his team are very welcoming and friendly. But the place needs a lot of love too. In the pitures of this place you can not see the broken floortiles, the riped shower curtain, the over sized fridge, the old paint, which all might need some touch ups. The place needs a make over to fit the colorful people.
Rio Lagartos is a very quiet village, but that is the charm of it. Life just goes by here, no need to rush, just sit on your balcony, watch the boats, the pelicans, the people, and do nothing but enjoy yourself.

Diego Nunez, our tour guide for our bird watching boat trip for photographers recommended this small hotel. It was a good recommendation, a great location away from the busy part of the shoreline and the closest to the Mangrove park. My husband and I stayed two nights. Our room was very large for just the two double, firm mattress beds. Simple and clean. It has air conditioning and a mini fridge, hotel size soap and shampoo. The room had a nice size bottle of water when we arrived and a new bottle the next day. Breakfast was served each morning. It was great as we left for our boat trip at 6am and was able to have something to eat before we the trip. The staff was very nice. We had a room with a large patio in front. See the photo of the deck overlooking the street. These are simple, clean lodgings. See the other photos too. If this info is helpful, please mark it/like it as such. I hop to go back.

Room Tip: 2nd floor front room.

This little hotel is a gem and a hidden treasure in the middle of nowhere. The room was huge, but simple. White washed walls, a telly, a fridge, two big beds and two bedside tables. Our room was overlooking the lagoon and we enjoyed the most beautiful sunrise from the balkony. The owner was extremely friendly and he organised a most memorable boat trip out to see the flamingos. Foodwise it was a bit tricky. There was no food in the hotel and all but one of the hotels in the town were closed. My husband had the last fish in town and i went on a 12 hour diet. The breakfast was fruit and a piece of toast.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking the lagoon. Any of the other rooms will do too.

Stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Proprietor very friendly and helpful. Had a room overlooking the sea, large and very clean, the American breakfast was great. Why more people don't visit this area, it has so much more than the Cancun/Tulum coast has to offer unless you just want to be in a hotel which could be anywhere else in the World. Excellent place to walk,fish,bird watch and visit the nearby villages, also the salt works.

Room Tip: The ones overlooking the sea if possible, lovely breeze and don't need air con
