3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed for longer. Beautiful hotel, perfect infrastructure, great food and drinks! The hotel also offers various day trips to different maya ruins and the lagoon of Bacalar. Mainly Mexican guests but almost everyone speaks at least some English. If you think about staying in the surroundings do t look further

Great place in the middle of the jungle, food was great, the service on the restaurant was good and the top place goes to the daily activities and the guides. Only two areas to improve, first the bikes to visit the nearby ruins need to be replaced and the waiting service sometimes was a little slow. But without questions try it if you like nature and want an active holiday. Daily activities are set by the hotel but they are very open to accommodate changes. Try Bacalar and the kayak at night in the lake.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Explorean. The cottages are very luxurious and the meals were really quiet extraordinary. The grounds are meticulously maintained and cared for. The place is very peaceful and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We were very pleasantly surprised about the ‘daily activities’ which I don’t think the hotel is clear enough about in their materials. The activities are really the main focus of the days and truly get you out into the countryside – seeing ruins, biking, kayaking, etc. The all-inclusive aspect was very nice and you can make a one-time contribution/gratuity to staff at the end which eliminates the awkward moments of deciding if/when to tip a staff member for their help. Our only complaint is that the ‘house wine’ they served as part of the all-inclusive offer was pretty poor quality, though it must be said there seemed to be all kinds of choices for brand-name liquors and beer if that is what you like.

We enjoyed our one week stay. The activities were well planned and fun to do. The meals were excellent. The remote location meant the transportation drives took about one hour each way. Friendly helpful staff. The bicycles were well used and difficult to adjust for leg length or to shift gears.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay. The food and atmosphere were excellent, and the planned activities were well organized and enjoyable. This was a very relaxing and pleasant week, and we enjoyed meeting our fellow travelers at the resort. These included people from the U.S., Mexico, and Europe.

if you want to be in the jungle in a all inclusive hotel don' t hesitate to got to the Explorean . it"s marvelous and cool . the food and excursions are excellent . you can visit mays sites near the hotel . you will never forget !

The Explorian Kohunlich is a special place to stay. From the excellent food, to the little caring touches like coffee and banana bread brought to you private building each morning, to the fun activities thoughtfully put together and lead by locals who know the area and its history, it was both a relaxing stay, but also one that included just the right amount of activity with the daily excursions planned and provided gratis with your stay. The chef was very good, and willing to adapt food for several different needs/preferences, and was amazing at not only very tasty food, but with a beautiful presentation. Would highly recommend the Explorean for a special getaway!

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!
