I really appreciate the attention from the hosts, really kind people but for me the location was terrible and it was not what I was expecting after reading the comments. The room is spacious, but it was not for me. It seems a work in progress but not finished yet, no toilet paper available, Mosquitos everywhere. It's a place if... More

We chose this hotel as we were travelling with a rental car and wanted to avoid the crowded town centre. I thought the price for a room was so low that I'd better be prepared for anything. And yet, this lovely hotel is a surprise!! It's decorated with tastes and you immediately feel relaxed just by entering the gate. There... More

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

We had a great time a Casa Kan Balam. It's tucked away in a nice spot and walking distance to some great restaurants including a very good place for paella. We ended up there twice for dinner. 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
