We had such an amazing vacation and get away to Balamku Inn! It's a lovely Inn located right on the beach with all sorts of outdoor/beach equipment and lounge items. Not only were the grounds and rooms maintained and kept clean, but it's the hosts - Manny and Tita (Theresa) - that made our stay exceptional! Every morning between 8... More

Balamku is located 15 minutes south of the sleepy village of Mahahual. It has tranquil beaches, lovely accommodations, a great staff and a breakfast to die for! Several nearby restaurants serve great dinners. The hotel is totally green environmentally. Lovely place!

We were a bit alarmed when we first arrived in Mahahual as 3 cruise ships were in port. However, our fears disappeared instantly with the warm welcome from Teresa. Balamku is a few kilometres from town on a rutted road that keeps the cruisers at bay. It is in a beautiful location with a gorgeous beach and well designed, comfortable... More

We really enjoyed meeting you both and so glad that Balamku made you smile. Your review is helpful to others who may wonder about the impact of town having a cruise ship port. We are only 7 kms south of Mahahual but that makes all the difference in our privacy and tranquility. Good to be close enough to walk/ shop... More

I like everything about this place. Well managed, the round shaped rooms are spacious and the breakfast is very very good. Close down south there is a beautiful white sand beach too. Really peaceful retreat!

Balamku is a delight, largely due to the hospitality of Tita and Manny who oversee everything from a welcoming arrival greeting, meticulously clean palapa rooms and wonderful full breakfasts with lots of great coffee. Tita also makes the best Margarita in all of Mexico I'm sure. We enjoyed the short walk most nights to the Travel In down the road... More

My boyfriend took me to the most beautiful resort off the beaten path on the Mayan Coast of Mexico: Balamku Inn on the Beach. We stayed four nights and I've never felt so relaxed! The rooms were spacious and private with excellent wifi service throughout. Right outside the door to our personal hut was our own gorgeous private beach with... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over the holidays. Because we waited to book, we actually stayed in 2 different rooms and it worked out excellent. 1 had the front door walk right out onto the beach, the other was on the second floor and had a great view of the ocean. Since we wanted a place a little bit... More

Stayed a week at Balamku Inn and had a wonderful time. The place is utterly beautiful. Beach, sea, coconut trees, hammocks all right in front of your house. Room is big (looks even bigger because of it's round shape), spotless clean, well appointed with table, bench, closet and has lots of windows with ocean view. Also nice bathroom with big... More

We appreciate your thorough review which highlights the space and special systems that make Balamku unique as well as the friendly atmosphere which is very important when visiting a small Inn away from town. The sea grass fortunately is not a regular visitor...most guests, like yourselves, understand that and are good with what comes our way infrequently. Thank you for... More

We spent four wonderful nights at Balamku. Sleeping fifteen feet from a gorgeous ocean was an amazing experience. With no north wind during our time there, the ocean was so quiet and peaceful we slept each night to the sound of lapping waves. There is no light pollution out there, so every night we had a stunning star field to... More

If you're looking for an all-inclusive, postage-stamped resort, stay somewhere around Cancun. If you're in need of sea, sky and repose stay at Balamku Inn. My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and for 5 days we rejoiced in the beauty of this place. Manny and Tita treated us like family. Dulce and Josefina waited on us... More
