Thank goodness we checked our reservations before travel. They claimed to have no record of the reservation done through Hostel World. Glad we found another place at the last minute as it was two days before Christmas and a very busy time at Playa Del Carmen. We never did see this bed and breakfast....must be away from the center. Que...

This place cancelled our booking ten days before our scheduled stay this NYE. We booked months ago via hostel bookers and had our reservation confirmed by the hotel (who took almost 2 months to reply to our emails for confirmation). Be warned when booking here. No explanation was given. I smell a scam.

The Casa Kan Balam was a fantastic introduction to our trip around the Yucatan. We booked the hotel on a whim and it was a great decision. Annika was extremely accommodating, cooking up a great breakfast every morning. A real find and a unique stay. Couldn't recommend it enough. Do it.

I really appreciate the attention from the hosts, really kind people but for me the location was terrible and it was not what I was expecting after reading the comments. The room is spacious, but it was not for me. It seems a work in progress but not finished yet, no toilet paper available, Mosquitos everywhere. It's a place if...

We chose this hotel as we were travelling with a rental car and wanted to avoid the crowded town centre. I thought the price for a room was so low that I'd better be prepared for anything. And yet, this lovely hotel is a surprise!! It's decorated with tastes and you immediately feel relaxed just by entering the gate. There...

We spent 3 nights here on the Mexico leg of our central American trip. On arrival in Playa we took a taxi with our luggage, at first you think 'where is this taxi taking me', the hotel is in the residential area on a dirt road. There is no sign on the door to say it is a hotel, but...

I really want to leave an honest review of this B&B. First of all, its extremely difficult to find: Google maps on their website leads you downtown, between calle 5 and 6 or something. Then we found the correct address on our voucher, and went searching again. (Check the photos of this hotel; i left a picture of the right...

“any room available is as pretty. One has 2 beds, so if you travel with a friend it might be easier. Both have the gorgeous outdoor/indoor showers that make the B&B famous for, and both are white with special light arangements. The garden is amazing, and so is the silence at night.”
