If you want to leave it all behind, this is the place. No frills, just an amazing ocean view, relaxed people, stunning nature and the legendary Emiliano, who knows this area like the back of his hands, is an amazing cook and will tell you fascinating stories. For real lovers of Mexico.

If all you need is a mosquito net and a fan, this is the place to be! Balamjuyuc is at the top of the hill overlooking the beach and from some of the rooms you can literally see the ocean from your bed (I watched the sun rise every day). It's nice being slightly removed from the beach so that... More

Balamjuyuc is one of those places that feels like it was built with a lot of love -- and sustained by it. It is nestled on the path towards Punta Cometa, above the "town" of Mazunte, in a peaceful spot on the top of a hill that catches the breeze coming off the ocean and offers views of the moonrise...

This place has a nice laid back vibe. It is very much a hostel, with lots of people coming and going but is very charming and well priced. The views are outstanding and the owner Emiliano is incredibly accommodating. It’s a short (steep) walk down to the beach and only about 20 minutes from the famous Punta Cometa. The bathrooms...

At Balamjuyuc I had the best balcony and view of the ocean I have ever seen. The owner Emiliano and his staff were so welcoming, warm and gracious, he made me feel at home. I cannot wait to come back and stay longer!

My boyfriend and I booked directly with the owner (Emiliano) a week from March 18-25, 2014. The price he offered was $2,500 pesos per week and we deposited $500 pesos five months in advance. When we got there (after having reconfirmed the dates two weeks before) he told us that our room wasn't available and he lied by telling us... More

Up on the hill, beautiful views, practical kitchen, helpfull staff, clean and safe. I had a great time in Balamjuyuc and found the host Emiliano very helpfull. I liked the fact that it is close to town, yet up on a hill with fantastic views, close to punta cometa and the quiet mermejita beach. Felt like a home away from... More

Emiliano is a very welcoming host, and the cabanas have a very friendly atmosphere. The views here are incredible, and it makes for a very relaxing retreat. Close walk to the Punta Cometa, where you must go to watch the sunset, and also close to the natural jacuzzi, which is worth the clamber down the cliff side. Make sure not... More
