I stayed at five different hotels in the Yucatan peninsula on a bird-watching trip in May / June 2014. This was the best hotel I stayed in - not necessarily because of the facilities but because of the location and the welcome from the manager and staff.
I stayed in the Pelican room which has a balcony overlooking the estuary. As I arrived I watched Brown Pelicans and Frigatebirds glide past me within metres. My view was of a beautiful blue sea, ringed by forest and beach.
After some of the other busier places around the Yucatan, Rio Lagartos is a lovely calm antidote, with a much more relaxed attitude to visitors and profit. It is worth a few days exploration to see the flamingos, spoonbills and other birdlife around.
The hotel, at this time of year, does not provide lunch or dinner although this is no problem as it sits in a block with a number of restaurants. The breakfast is generous and tasty - it was much appreciated after an early morning start to have the staff ready to make me a fresh breakfast at 11.00 am when I arrived back later than expected. Great service all round.
Wi-fi is fast and reliable and available throughout the hotel.
