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

If you just want to fall asleep listening to the waves and a warm breeze blowing gently through your room, wake up to a great breakfast and to a beautiful blue sea, snorkel, perhaps fish from the beach or kayak then Balamku is your spot. Yes, it may not be perfect, sea weed blows in from time to time, and... More

So wonderful that you could include Xcalak and the manatees in your review . We like to help people make the most of their Costa Maya experience and that is such a treat, especially if you see the manatees...We enjoyed your stay with us and do hope we will see you again. More

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

Balamku is about 4KM from the main businesses right on the beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast, included in the price per night, is made to order and tasty. The manager team (husband and wife) are friendly and full of information about the area.

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
