After a few weeks of travelling through Mexico we were searching a quiet and relaxing place for a few days. BalamKu Inn was perfect for this. We were here for 4 nights during off season, so there were not many guests present at the time. The managers Manny and Tita are very nice people who made our stay unique. The... More

The Mahahual area is rather remote and quiet- perfect for those seeking something different and away from the crowds. It is about 4.5 hours south of the airport in Cancun almost in Belize. Its known for the cruise ships coming into the little town twice a week but they shouldn't bother you, as Balamku Inn is about 5 km down... More

We had 3 lovely, stress-free days here. Manny and T are wonderful hosts and offer a delicious breakfast (try their homemade granola!) that comes with the room. You also have free use of a kayak. The rooms are clean and everything is run by wind or solar power. The beach is just outside your door, and we spent almost 2... More

Mahahual is a sleepy little village which is wonderful and Balamku just a few kms south, makes it totally away from any "crowds" . A great place to sleep like a "rock". thank you for this great review and for mentioning the reasons why folks love Balamku More

My daughter and I came here for a quiet getaway and really loved our time at Balamku Inn.

We appreciate your comments about our hotel and thank you for taking the time to write a review. The sea grass is cleaned daily and sometimes, with big winds, can take time to clear. As sea grass is an essential part of the ecosystem, we know it's value but understand the desire for a big white beach which is very... More

After traveling through Mexico for a while we found this great place. This hotel is absolutely unforgetable and one of the greatest places on earth. The location and the rooms are very romantic and individual and the beach is amazing. The best thing is, that it is a very familar atmosphere and not one of those big resorts. The owners... More
