눉I made the reservation a week prior to leave the country. It was made for January 1st. Two days before the reservation date the owner sent me a message telling me he likes to connect with his guest. We exchanged a few emails and agreed on the fact that we should be there around 2 or 3 pm. We got... More

We booked a deluxe room, for $55 US per night. Dirty bedsheets, awful mattress, noisy room (the dorms are upstairs), a cheap hostel room overall. The owner has his own wifi, and the one given to the customers does not work. Go somewhere else, for the same price there is great accommodation in this town.

If you're looking for an affordable bungalow with breathtaking views, that's your place! I really enjoyed my week there. It's located between two beaches - the main one with many restaurants and Mermejita that is wilder and bigger. Emiliano, the owner, made me feel at home. He's very friendly. Don't leave without trying the Temazcal (ancestral ritual and detoxing method)!!... More

I spent 3 days in one of the cabins - Emiliano gave us a free upgrade to a room with a bathroom and was very accommodating when we arrived at 9am after an overnight bus. The rooms were large and the view was amazing. The kitchen facilities were good, and our room had hot water, internet was decent. The cabins... More

Cosy, friendly spot a bit up the hill with an unforgettable view on the beach. If you enjoying watching sunrise, its definitely a place to be. Get a room preferably on the second floor by the edge of the hill, and you will not regret it. The view during sunrise (around 4am) is just incredible. Even ended up sleeping on... More

Emiliano was super nice to me. It was getting late, he saw me wondering on the streets of Mazunte and offered me a bed in the women's dormitory. The room was comfortable and clean, and the view...was amazing, and was for sure the best part of my stay at the Cabañas. I definitely recommend to check this place and get... More

Balamjuyuc is a unique place where you can actually breathe nature and enjoy the beauty of the ocean from an amazing angle. Simple, cozy, wild in a certain way, truly authentic. If you have the privilige to stay there you will probably lose the concept of time, it did happened to me! Hidden everywhere are some pretty details of the... More

We arrived in the wrong month as it was sooo hot and so sweaty. Our cabana was not cleaned very well as there was toothpaste or something all down the mirror and there was mucho sand in the bed. It also smelled of sewer. Other than that, the owner was very nice to us and was very accommodating. We would... More

Emiliano "Mephisto" is the best owner of the most beautiful place in the world. The prices are really good and economic. The service is familiar and outstanding. Berta, the lady of the kitchen is really lovely and Frida, the dog, gorgeous. We had the best time of the whole trip in Mazunte. Emiliano does also Temascal-Sessions and the best BBQ... More

Negatives The rooms (double ensuite) was smelly and stuffy. We were actually a bit scared of the owner, sometimes he would be nice and other times... More
