In February 2014 a friend and I went to Rio Lagartos to fly fish for tarpon and get some sun. Punta Ponto exceeded our expectations. Roger and Silvia could not do enough to make our stay perfect. His knowledge of the area, ability to connect us with local guides for fishing, bird watching and a visit to Myan Ruins plus...

We arrived at this place and there was a small problem with our pre booked room, the owner immediately upgraded us, he couldn't have been more accommodating with all our wee requests, breakfast times, arranging onward travel, tours etc. Would go back. The early morning tour to mangrove well worth it.

If you are looking to get away from noise, filth, and commercialism, the Punta Ponto Hotel in Rio Lagartos is the place to go. The rooms are large and very clean. Roger, Sylvia, and everyone there will do whatever is necessary to satisfy your needs. I have been there three consecutive years, and I will be back again.

Took us 10 minutes to find anyone to check us in although when we did find the lady owner she was nice enough. The room was pretty run down, the water pressure nothing more than a trickle (I've never struggled to clean my teeth in a hotel before - and I've stayed in some pretty bad ones) and the bed...

Wanted a quiet, peaceful vacation out of the gringo trail but with sufficient services such as good restaurants, hotels, doctor, sightseeing trips and nearby attractions. I hit a home-run when I choose the Punta Ponto in Rio Lagartos. Our host was Sr. Roger Alcócer, a very helpful, friendly and savvy local with enough English to communicate easily, the hotel has...

We stayed one night in Rio Lagartos, arriving with the direct bus from Merida. We were picked up at the bus station and could arrange a trip to the Flamingos for the next day. The hotel is very clean, nice views on the Laguna, all restaurants are in walking distance (as Rio Lagartos is really small). The manager Sr. Massa...

Good location, except the front upstairs room which is noisy due to traffic 4 meters away intermittantly throughout the weekday night. Roger is friendly for the evening shift, but hasn't taken the time to learn how to turn on the internet, so If you need to use it to make plans, make sure you can log on before the day...

A typical seaside hotel in the old Mexico tradition. Clean, airy, with an internet link, TV, and AC .... almost modern, but thankfully not quite. Lots of basic charm, a host, Roger, who cared and a hot water system that was mysterious, but finally worked. A good full breakfast which we supplemented with pan dulce from the local bakery. Super...

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.

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...
