“Loved our stay at Club Grand Slam in Punta Allen, MX”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2009

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).

A fantastic fly fishing experience with guides Fransisco and William. These local fishermen have been guiding for years in Ascension Bay and are very knowledgable not to mention they know all the best spots around. Even for the rookie fly fisher that I am (first timer) I reeled in Bone fish every day we were out - over twenty on my last day.

Accomodations provided by owner, fly fishing instructor and guide, Greg, and his wife, Lupita were always clean and comfortable. We had all the basic comforts of home including A/C. The only exception was television. But who the hell wants to sit in front of that brain drain when life is this good! The beach is just a short jaunt down the street and a small market a few blocks away. The late afternoon downtimes were great for reading or napping and cleaning gear before supper was served.

Lupita cooked generous portions of the most delicious authentic Mexican food for breakfast and dinner. There was always variety and lots of TLC. Meals were served in their private garden just around the corner from our room. She also prepared us sack lunches for the day of fishing. We never went hungry.

Its a long drive to the small fishing village of Punta Allen but the road is well maintained. I liked the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of life in this relaxed atmosphere. I'm going back in a few months and really looking forward to it!

First, Punta Allen is in the middle of the Sian Ka'an national park and just a tiny hamlet of local lobstermen. After searching for decent lodging and finding nothing suitable considering the heat of summer, I stumbled on this diamond. It was a little more than the other places, but it had A/C, wireless internet, and a very cool and spacious decor. A local named Lupi and her American husband Greg own it and it is mostly an all included lodge for fishermen, but rent out their suites when there are no guests. Breakfast was included and was outstanding. I ended up paying extra for their meal plan, which was a real winner. Lupi is a very excellent cook and I never went hungry for the 4 days I stayed.

The place is a block from the beach, but I spent my non-fishing down time relaxing and catching up on my reading.
