Explorean Kohunlich All Inclusive

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This may seem a little isolated for some, but worry not. The staff is outstanding, food is excellent, and the daily excursions are fabulous. Surprises around every corner. We only know a few words of Spanish (literally beer, bathroom, thank you, etc) and the staff made every effort to make us feel comfortable. If you enjoy quite go when schools are in and it's not holidays. This is one of the few places you can truly unplug. No TV and WiFi only in the lobby. Would absolutely go back and we are definitely going to try their other resort.

This is our fourth time at the Explorean and things could not have been better. The restaurant, albeit small; has improved dramatically for the better. last time the food was great and it was better this time. We took advantage of the activities for one of the days and the tour was well worth the effort. The hotel is still top notch although the infrastructure is a bit worn. For example, the doors and paint need a bit of attention. If this is the biggest challenge; we can live with it to enjoy the site, the top-notch service and cuisine and the wonderful staff.

This resort combines a luxury hotel experience with various excursions to Mayan ruins and jungle habitat learning about Mayan culture, history, and local flora and fauna. Every meal is a creative gourmet treat served with professionalism and smiles. The general ambience of the hotel is relaxed sophistication which is particularly enhanced by the policy of leaving the payment of all gratuities at the end of stay. The excursions are very well planned activities with the right amount of physicality and leaving room for adaptations based on individual needs. These excursions were led by excellent tour guides and provided many surprises. This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way!

this all inclusive hotel is unique ! expeditions and tours and really different and the restaurant offer really good food ! don't hesitate to stay 43 to 5 days to discover the jungle ! stay near the piscine or in the jacuzzi to drink cocktails and snacks!

Absolutley amazing experience not only is it beautiful, adventureous, romantic, but the service is out of this world. They give you a new activity everyday that take place in the most gorgeous environment imaginable. The guides are extremely informative making the tours safe, fun, and educational. The resort and staff take every opportunity to surprise and wow you as a guest. Bring extra bug spray that is the only downside. I felt like the entire staff was so friendly and eager to make guests feel welcome. However my boyfriend and I speak little Spanish so we really bonded with the employees who spoke English. Moses, Armando, Daniel, and Nuvia (who didn't speak English but was so helpful) amazed us and went above and beyond to not only provide excellent service but to befriend us. My boyfriend and I went over Thanksgiving and because they knew it was a holiday in our country the kitchen staff surprised us(Americans) with a Thanksgiving day feast. Beyond amazed by this paradise.

Fantastic stay at a remote location .Wonderful staff,great food ,fun activities.Really special place to disconnect and relax. Just enough planned and free time,delicious food.can't say enough about the amazing staff

The title says it all. This is not a typical vacation spot, it is an experience you can’t get at a cookie-cutter resort. Set in the trees, the only water view is the pool but don’t let that stop you. We spent several days in the water on various activities including swimming in cenote azul, kayaking in the Bacalar lagoon and a night kayaking trip that was spectacular. Every day brought a new activity that Armando, Daniel, Francisco, Victor and the rest of the activity staff executed perfectly. In addition to the activities, the food is the other highlight. Breakfast is a set menu with all excellent choices (trust me, we tried them all). Lunch and dinner come with two choices of appetizer, entree, and dessert. We didn’t come across a dish we didn’t like and didn’t want to skip a meal in fear we would miss something else exciting. I would recommend stocking up on lots of bug spray as the mosquitos can be a bit much and the gift shop spray is way overpriced. We can’t wait to come back!

We went to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and loved the Explorean. We are members of FAVC and typically go to Cabo but always wanted to try the Explorean and we were not disappointed. Rooms: We had a cabana for 4 nights and a bungalow for 2. Both were wonderful, with a seating area outside and a hammock. Beds were comfortable. We were in 17 & 27 and felt the rooms were conveniently located to the restaurant. Food: Delicious! All meals are included and served at the one restaurant. As a vegetarian, I had to eat fish on this trip because selections were limited, but every meal was so tasty. Desserts were average & I was glad I had brought some chocolate with us. We had a few dinners off site and that was an exceptional experience. Activities: The hotel plans the activities and presents you with a schedule for your stay. Over the course of 5 days we went kayaking (in different places) 3 times and visited Mayan ruins 2 times. The guides are great, especially Armando & Daniel! Other tips: -Traveling there: We flew from LAX to Mexico City on a later flight. Stayed one night in Mexico City (don't drink the water or have hot tea!), then flew to Chetumal on an am flight. To travel home we flew from Chetumal on an am flight, got our bags and had to change terminals (which was a nightmare. Just take a taxi) to travel from Mexico City to LAX. The location makes it hard to get to, but figuring it out is worth it! -Most of the guests were Mexican nationals and for a few days we were the only guests who spoke English. The staff speaks English well. We weren't looking to meet other people but if we were hoping for that kind of connection it may have been hard because of the language barriers. It also made group meals a little awkward sometimes, but everyone was super nice and tried to talk with us. -Serious mosquitos. Bring more bug spray than you think you need. -Self-serve bar is kind of odd, but you really are supposed to make your own cocktails. -I was glad to have water shoes.

Great experience. The activities provided by the hotel are amazing, you get to ride a Kayak, swim in a Lake, ge to to know the archeological site near the hotel. All its included and you do not have to worry about anything. You do not have gym. However, it´s not needed it, trust me. The food was great, very good mexican cuisine. Without any hesitation I would recommend it. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY, WELCOMING AND HANDY!

My husband and I wanted an "off the beaten path" type of vacation both to get away and also to celebrate 11 years of marriage. What we found at the Explorean was thast type of vacation but it was coupled with a 5 star dining experience and staff that we will remember for a long time. Everyone was incredibly friendly although only about 25% spoke some level of English. But honestly it made it sort of more fun in a way and the staff helped us actually learn some Spanish in our time there. The guides were so much fun although I am sure I am forgetting some names. Daniel and Armando were always smiling and very friendly, Seidy gives AMAZING massages (I highly recommend getting "The Kohunlich massage" before you go) and our waiters really went out of their way to make our dining experience enjoyable. The chef can make anything you ask for if you don't want what is being served. If you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, the "dinner in the jungle" is also very much worth the extra cost. Only complaints were wi-fi was VERY spotty, even in the lobby and the fact that there was no tv at all (hard to get used to). Also, the mosquitos really are bad, and I think the bug spray makes it worse, so bring lots of light weight long sleeve shirts and pants to make excursions more fun. We will truly miss this place and thought it was a great bargain for the price!
