We spent 3 nights here on the Mexico leg of our central American trip. On arrival in Playa we took a taxi with our luggage, at first you think 'where is this taxi taking me', the hotel is in the residential area on a dirt road. There is no sign on the door to say it is a hotel, but... More

I really want to leave an honest review of this B&B. First of all, its extremely difficult to find: Google maps on their website leads you downtown, between calle 5 and 6 or something. Then we found the correct address on our voucher, and went searching again. (Check the photos of this hotel; i left a picture of the right... More

The decor was incredible, I took lots of pictures for home furnishing ideas. The hospitatlity was great and the breakfast included could not... More

A very nice room, VERY beautifully decorated and comfortable. A taxi ride out of the centre and hard to find at first. Breakfast was great and the host was very friendly and helpful. Only problem was that because the bathroom isn't completely closed, mosquitos had free entry to the room and I got a lot of mosquito bites.

We had nice stay. The room was very nice, breakfast was also very very good. Annick was very friendly with us and his recommandations for restaurants were great. The location is out of the tourist area but not very far from the centre and the beach of Playa Del Carmen. I highly recommend this place!!

We had a lovely sty at Casa Kan Balam. The rooms are gorgeous and it was a lovely oasis to retreat to from the busy beach front of Playa. The owner recommended some lovely places to eat and the breakfasts they provide were delicious! Absolutely loved the outdoor rain shower (totally private too, in case you're worried!) Whilst not in... More

We stayed at Casa Kan Balam in 2011 while we were travelling around South & central America. We came to Playa del Carmen to do some cavern diving and were used to staying in pretty down-market cheap accomodation to save money on our long trip. So we were wonderfully surprised to find a beautifully decorated room, with a wet room... More

We spent a few days in January 2013 at Casa Kan Balam, and we incredibly loved it! The property is amazing. Once you're past the main gate, you are transported both in time and space into a tropical/rustic paradise: there are two suites in the house, each with a private entry once you're inside the main gate. The decor of... More
