This place was an amazing value!!! For only $50 we had a beautiful breakfast for 3, a HUGE room with 2 double beds and huge bath (not fancy, but very clean), use of kayaks and the dock to the lake. The property is right on the lake and so enjoyable. When we were there we were lucky that there was a family from Denmark and a family from France/California so if was nice for our son to have children around. The wonderful German couple who take care of the place said it always works out that way for some reason.
They also prepare complete dinners, if you want, for just $7 and all fresh from their garden. This is a great place to stay a long time or just on your way back from traveling south. We stayed here for one night on the way back from Calakmul ruins on our return to Cancun. A peaceful place with nice gardens and birds.
The only drawback is there are no locks on the doors. However, we felt safe, nothing of ours was missing and the family from Denmark was there for a week and had no problem.
We would definitely return and stay longer. What a little secret this place is.
