Club Grand Slam proprietors Greg and Lupita were beyond wonderful to us on our vacation to Punta Allen. Our room (two rooms really) was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The shower was hot (& lots of water pressure!) and the AC kept the place cool. And, please, do yourself a favor when you stay at Club Grand Slam; include meals in the package! Lupita is an amazing cook and the portions are huge. Her cuisine is fresh and Mayan; and the garden where meals are served is absolutely lovely.
Believe it our not, we didn't come for the bone fishing but found plenty to do on our own. The nearby swimming, beach combing, and snorkeling opportunities are incredible. Greg showed us miles and miles of deserted beaches and pointed out the good snorkeling spots. There is also a nice jungle hike you can take through the Sian Kahn Biosphere; the trailhead is only minutes away from their place.
Punta Allen is a nice little enclave worth visiting. The people are very friendly and you definitely won't see hordes of tourists. We spent a nice day just walking around town. Make sure you watch the sunset over Laguna Negra from the pier and viewing palapa the town recently built ( and don't forget to bring a bottle of wine).
