We arrived at Balamku in February this year intending to stay 2 days, but instead stayed 5 as we were so impressed. The place is serene and well run in spite of the fact that the previous managers Shirley and Art (who were great) were in the process of leaving and Manny and Teresa (equally great) were taking over, so...

Manny and his wife (Tere) are wonderful hosts and run one of the nicest and cleanest hotels I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. The rooms are very reasonably priced and if take into account the included DELICIOUS breakfast, it is true bargain! I will be back!

We're family of 3 staying there for a couple of nights. The amount of garbage destroys the pleasure of staying there. Pros: - Nice cabanas and comfortable rooms. - Small but pleasant terraces to sit outside in from of the room. - Nice view from the distance. - The hotel area nicely designed. - The road is good enough for...

My sister and I just spent a week at Balamku and had a wonderful time. It's a perfect place to go if you want to get away from it all and just relax. Manny and Theresa are wonderful hosts who will make you feel at home. Their bright smiles every morning are a nice touch too. :-) They also give... More

We recently made our third trip to Balamku on the Beach near the village of Majahual. We would advise you not to go here if a pot-holed road is daunting, or if you want lots of night life and fancy restaurants and a bar 24/7! And you won't have television or excess power for your hair dryers! Please do go... More

Well put! We are in a perfect location for sublime tranquility and superior service that comes with a small client - centered hotel. The road has been dramatically improved in these last few weeks with more work coming so now driving to town is a quick jaunt. Thanks for coming and coming again. More

We stayed at Balamku for 5 nights at the end of our Mexican road trip. Our stay was fantastic in every respect... We had room 9 with great views and it was incredibly peaceful - just the sound of the ocean and the breeze to fall asleep to! Mani and Te, the new managers, are wonderful hosts and cannot do... More

Thank you for letting us and others know how great your experience at Balamku and Mahahual South Beach was. We love being close to town but also away from the bustle. Our clients, like you, appreciate the privacy and tranquility that comes with staying "south" many thanks More

My boyfriend and I only had four days in Mexico (arriving in Cancun Friday morning and flying out Monday night), and we weren't sure that it made sense to drive the extra 4-4.5 hours to Mahahual. But here's the calculus as I saw it: in Cancun for 100 dollars a night, you're staying in a motel a mile from the... More

Beautiful inn and location, clean and comfortable rooms - many with wifi access. Central building for meals, wifi, drinks and hanging out. Good choice at breakfast ( trust me, order juevos rancheros con chorizo! ). You can order a dinner for the evening or have a drink (alcoholic or not)- great dining room with windows on the water.

Just finished 5 days here at the end of February, 2014. It is as nice and worthwhile as other reviewers say. Two additional things: 1. The management, at this time Art and Shirley, are exceptional in their attention and care, knowledge and humor.
