This truly is a eco-resort. Carol and Alan have taken the time to research and do things right from the toilets, constructed wetlands, solar and wind power this is a lovely eco resort. Situated south of Mahahual on the beach road, close enough to town to enjoy it but far enough that even when the cruise ships arrive you are...

Well i'll get the negative out of the way first. The welcome really wasnt great. I'll say no more. Thankfully first impressions arent always right. Absolutely stunning location miles away from anywhere (at the end of a very potholed road). Fabulous rooms. Fabulous views. Hamocks on the beach. A reef out front (with manatee). Kayaks to borrow for free. Good...

This hotel offers peace and tranquility, without the unnecessary gimmicks that other small beach front hotels force on you. If you are ever in the Mahahual area of Mexico this is a must stay. Friendly people and excellent service!

We arrived near dusk after a long drive without a reservation looking for a room in Mahahual. Allan told us that there was only one room left that night, as the others were either occupied or shut down for maintenance. We said okay, and got the downstairs room, to the right of the main house (facing the ocean). After giving...

Balamku was a wonderful experience. We felt as through we were sleeping among the trees being on the second floor of the Inn. The beaches were wonderful and we enjoyed using the kayaks every day to go out to the reef to snorkel. This was the nicest eco-vacation facilities we have been to. The Inn had all amenities but everything...

We rented two wonderful rooms in May and June 2011 and I have to confess that Balamku Inn is by far the nicest eco resort you will find.

I cannot say enough positive things about my 4 days at Balamku! A group of us traveled during Easter weekend and were surprised to find the town of Majahual filled with people - but Balamku was our oasis! The hotel was full- but it was as if we had the resort to ourselves. The rooms were adorable. So clean and...
