My wife and I just returned from a week stay at Na Balam- booked thru Orbitz for plunge pool suite. Arrived and was given room #13- the far right corner suite of the 3 or 4 available at resort. These rooms overlooked the NE corner of beach right across from Hotel Avalon. Nice view and location. Hotel is located on... More

The hotel is located on Playa Norte (North Beach of the island). It ia absolutely drop dead gorgeous. No TV, no phone in rooms. Left a wake up call or knock on door the last day. Did not happen. Asked for a cab to be there to take us to the ferry none showed up with nobody at desk (shut... More

Just returned from a 5night stay & I am already missing it. Location is THE best in the island. Most beautiful beach and rooms are clean, simple & very roomy. Will definitely return, hopefully next year. Food: Dinner was excellent if a bit pricy. Lunch was simple and best eaten on the beach. Breakfast needs work. OJ is not freshly... More

Great location marred by mismanagement. Unhelpful, unhappy and uninformed staff. About half the fellow guests had peaceful and trouble-free stays, the rest all complained of one problem or another--lost reservation, room not cleaned, hidden charges, etc. Rooms nice but with tacky mistakes--hammock hung too low to be usable, door chain mounted on wall but with no corresponding hardware on door,...

If you are looking for a high rise beach hotel with partying going on this is not it. Yes, we felt awkward with a small cooler of beer on the beach. It didn't stop us though. We stayed at Na Balam in February for six nights. Upon arrival I was impressed at the condition of the grounds so I'll start... More

We stayed in Unit #21 on the garden/pool side of property. Very nice upper level unit with thatched palapa roof, 2 double beds (one was very uncomfortable) and a large bathroom. Authentic Mexican resort. Beach was a bit crowded. Staff were frendly but not exactly solicitous. Room was immaculately cleaned every day. Easy walk to town. Would not eat at... More

Location, location, location! By far the best location on north beach. Far enough from main street for quiet. Close enough for walking to all the shops and restaurants. Tropical and lush. Enjoyed swinging in our patio hammock while palms danced over my head. No TV, no radio, no refrigerator. Clean, simple rooms. Restaurant surpassed expectations. Plenty of hot water and... More

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
