Diane and Rick have a real treasure in the middle of the Calakmul Biosphere. In addition to ruin hunting, Diane and staff whip up some of the most amazing dishes in a remote part of the world. The food is tasty and beautifully presented. Cocktail hour is a wonderful way to meet some of the most interesting people you will... More

Our dinner at the resort was extremely delicious the tables set up under a large palapa. The salad of goats cheese and avocado was amazing…cheers to the chef. The whole... More

My boyfriend was planning on proposing to me at Calakmul on our second day and told Diane the night before about his plans. After he proposed we drove back to... More

I already reviewed the hotel quite positively and may have made some mention of the food, a few times.... If you did not catch that hotel review let me repeat that we had the great luck of being able to experience the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Feast that Diane, Rick and Kate prepared for their guests. Nothing short of... More

Not only for overnight guests, we would highly recommend this restaurant. They have a changing menu every evening. And since the chef is british you will never find any food too spicy. Beautiful location. Tasty food. If you ever drive by on Hwy 186, stop here for dinner!
