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.

as the titel sounds. The Room and bathroom was very nice and interoired with lot of details. Missing a/c was no problem, due to a quiet Fan. Fantastic bed and also good breakfast. Also, i would like to have someone bread/toast. But cereals comming with fresh milk and fruits were also very delicious. And don't forget the cake. The Garden... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We had a great time a Casa Kan Balam. It's tucked away in a nice spot and walking distance to some great restaurants including a very good place for paella. We ended up there twice for dinner. The decor was incredible, I took lots of pictures for home furnishing ideas. The hospitatlity was great and the breakfast included could not... More
