The Cabanas are located on a beautiful hill just above the bay of Mazunte. There are stairs down to the beach, which you reach in about 5 minutes. We had a shared room with 4 beds in a wooden cabana, simple, but with a ventilator, hammock and mosquito nets. The view from our terrace was incredible. The only handicap is... More

I had an 100% positive experience staying at Balamjuyuc. The cabin had the best view of the ocean. Great balcony for watching the ocean and eagles flying by and for practicing yoga. I loved my bed, it was cozy and it was right by the window. All I had to do to see the sunrises in the morning was to... More

눉I made the reservation a week prior to leave the country. It was made for January 1st. Two days before the reservation date the owner sent me a message telling me he likes to connect with his guest. We exchanged a few emails and agreed on the fact that we should be there around 2 or 3 pm. We got... More

We booked a deluxe room, for $55 US per night. Dirty bedsheets, awful mattress, noisy room (the dorms are upstairs), a cheap hostel room overall. The owner has his own wifi, and the one given to the customers does not work. Go somewhere else, for the same price there is great accommodation in this town.

If you're looking for an affordable bungalow with breathtaking views, that's your place! I really enjoyed my week there. It's located between two beaches - the main one with many restaurants and Mermejita that is wilder and bigger. Emiliano, the owner, made me feel at home. He's very friendly. Don't leave without trying the Temazcal (ancestral ritual and detoxing method)!!... More

I spent 3 days in one of the cabins - Emiliano gave us a free upgrade to a room with a bathroom and was very accommodating when we arrived at 9am after an overnight bus. The rooms were large and the view was amazing. The kitchen facilities were good, and our room had hot water, internet was decent. The cabins... More

Cosy, friendly spot a bit up the hill with an unforgettable view on the beach. If you enjoying watching sunrise, its definitely a place to be. Get a room preferably on the second floor by the edge of the hill, and you will not regret it. The view during sunrise (around 4am) is just incredible. Even ended up sleeping on... More

Emiliano was super nice to me. It was getting late, he saw me wondering on the streets of Mazunte and offered me a bed in the women's dormitory. The room was comfortable and clean, and the view...was amazing, and was for sure the best part of my stay at the Cabañas. I definitely recommend to check this place and get... More

Balamjuyuc is a unique place where you can actually breathe nature and enjoy the beauty of the ocean from an amazing angle. Simple, cozy, wild in a certain way, truly authentic.

We arrived in the wrong month as it was sooo hot and so sweaty. Our cabana was not cleaned very well as there was toothpaste or something all down the mirror and there was mucho sand in the bed. It also smelled of sewer. Other than that, the owner was very nice to us and was very accommodating. We would... More
