At the end of the zona hotelera, Xbalamque offers low budget cosy cabanas with a nice bed and mosquitos net. Shared kitchen (without mosquitos net) where you can assist to robberies from raccoones. I love those animals! Wifi and electricity from 5pm to 2am only. Shared bathrooms and showers. 50m from the beach-probably one of the best in the area.... More

We were excited about the description of this place that we found online (and in Rough Guides) - clean and friendly; hippy atmosphere; vegetarian food. But we were disappointed. The staff were miserabe, cranky and unhelpful. Breakfast was not actually included as no one was up before 9am. The room was dirty, and the caretaker kept trying to charge us... More
