We stayed two nights at Na Balam. I normally don't write reviews like this, but Na Balam deserves one. This place is an unusual one out of the norm from so much fakery in the Cancun area. The owners have thoughtfully created a simple, but elegant place from the details on up. The rooms are clean, and built with marble... More

We stayed in the nicest room in the whole hotel. Very nice location. Beach is very relaxing. Problems: -Mosquitoes, think maids left doors open when they came in to clean, one sliding door did not close all the way so might have come in from there. We spent every night killing mosquitoes for almost an hour. -Noise, right across the... More

This has to be the best hotel on Isla Mujeres. We had a lovely beachfront room, which was huge, very clean and had a terrace. It is in a quiet location but still close to the centre (10 mins walk) for all the restaurants and bars. We were there in low season so didn't get to benefit from the beach... More

This is our third trip to Isla. We love the island and the people. We have stayed at the Icxhel and Maria Del Mar but agree that the Na Balam is our favorite. It is a perfect mix of Mexican rustic and necessary amenities. We had a second floor room overlooking the child play area and the beach. This hotel... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Na Balam, and we will most definitely go back again and again. This is the place to stay if you want a true Isla experience. We were a group of six - 3 married couples looking for a relaxing and effortless 5 day vacation. Both Na Balam and Isla provided that... More

We had a great time here. The hotel is quiet and has a really nice location at the reputedly best beach on the island. Our room was very stylish and perfectly suited our needs, even. The pillows were not very good, though. Helpful staff and good restaurant with great on-beach service. Be carefoul with moscuitos!!

We stayed at Na Balam from January 6 - 10. We made arrangements (confirmed with the management TWICE) to have a driver waiting for us at the Cancun airport to take us to the ferry at Puerto Morales. There was no driver, we spent several hours calling the hotel, waiting for a driver who never arrived, getting stopped by the... More

If you would like to read more recent reviews, please go to Na Balam Beach Hotel on Trip Advisor. For some reason, Trip Advisor has not responded to a suggestion to consolidate both Na Balam and Na Balam Beach Hotel reviews. I would recommend this hotel with some reservation. It really has to do with your own level of comfort... More

This was our second stay at Na Balam, and after reading the negative reviews I was somewhat apprehensive. After staying in one of the ocean-view, second-floor rooms for six nights, here are the facts: The room was spacious, immaculately clean, and very pleasant, with whitewashed walls, white cotton curtains, tile floor, ample storage in dark wood dressers and closet.

We stayed at the Na Balam for a week in the second week of January. Upon arrival we immediately regretted having paid in advance for our week as the hotel is nothing like the website describes. First of all the positives - the location is perfect - the beach is beautiful, perfect white sand, the clearest water. Ideal for kids... More
