We booked this place based on Trip Advisor reviews and we're so happy we did! It's an amazing, little Inn with just 10 rooms located right ON a small strip of beach front about 5-6 Km south of Majahual. Majahual itself isn't much to write home about as it's a typical, small Mexican village with several bodegas and some (really over priced) restaurants and beach clubs adjacent to a "melacon" which is a bit more like a faux Mexican beach town built solely for the occasional cruise ship. Majahual is just okay, the Balamku, however, is fantastic.
The place is spotless, well kept, well run but a Canadian couple (Though, I understand this will be changing). The Inn is run off of solar and wind power, has okay wifi/Internet, no phone, no TV and stunning views. You can snorkel or Kayak along the small barrier reef (about 500 meters off the shore), comb the beaches or just hang out in a hammock.
Insofar as food goes, breakfast is included and is excellent. Lunch can be a challenge as there are two restaurants nearby (both excellent) but they seem to open and close based more on mood than on set hours. If you go to the Maya Luna Inns restaurant, try the Pineapple shrimp dish. The other restaurant is called the Travel-Inn and is also good, though not quite as remarkable.
