We ended up here by a pleasant accident. Its a great place with only five cabinas. It includes a full kitchen which saved us paying for restaurants the whole time. The pool us great and there are two bbqs (didn't use them myself). The staff were great and we really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights as we wanted to be close to the beach. Lovely quiet setting in a walled garden with a pleasant pool and sunbeds. We had booked the smaller bungalow as there are just two of us but were upgraded to a larger family unit with two separate bedrooms, fully fitted kitchen, lounge area and porch... More

We drove by Bungalows Ballena and stopped to check them out. Lucky for us they had a cabin available. After sharing a room for the previous weeks,... More

We recently stayed at Bungalows Ballena for 2 nights. We stayed in the larger cabin which sleeps 8. It was clean, comfortable and run by very friendly and accommodating staff. This place was a great choice for our family as our bungalow had a playground right out front and we could watch our young child play from our porch. The... More

Grills available. Beautiful pool in the shape of a whales tail with a fun slide that even my 16 year old enjoyed. No bugs. Close to the beach.... More

The solid wooden bungalows are big and clean, have A/C and a fully equipped kitchen and are free from insects - great. The pool area is awesome and beautifully designed. It's even got a very fun slide. From the water we were watching several green iguanas (as many as three at the same time) in the tree right next to... More
