I had a wonderful experience at Balamku Inn. The staff were very personable and eager to help us plan our events for the day. I enjoyed being right on the beach, and feeling very isolated from everything. The units are beautiful and very comfortable.

Carol is a great hostess who obviously loves her job. The rooms are delightful and the breakfasts delicious! I was disappointed that it was very windy the whole time we were there ruining my plans for kayaking and snorkelling however we still had a wonderful time. Carol was very agreeable to move us away from the wind turbine which can...

This is off the beaten path! (how wonderful!) Balamku is a small 10 cabana/cabin spacious eco resort right on beach. Snorkeling is straight off the beach to the reef and excellent new kayaks make exploring the bay a relaxing way to paddle the shallows. Comfortable lounge chairs on the beach make reading the vacation novel a toss-up with just watching...

In February my wife and I spent a great week at the Balumku Inn south of Mahahual. We highly recommend this spot and hope to enjoy more time there next year. The breakfast alone was good reason to return, but the hospitality is superb and we met a number of interesting guests as well. The highlight for me was a...

We stayed here for 3 days/nights last week and it is sheer paradise. The owner Alan is very helpful and knows the area well. The rooms are fantastic set in round 'cottage' like buildings and there are only 10, all the same, beautiflly decorated and very clean. Wireless internet available near the Main building. All the power and water supplied...

My wife and I have travelled extensively and when winter approaches Mexico is our favourite destination. Discovering Balamku this year has to be the best find yet. Carol and Allan, a couple from Canada, have designed and built an inn on the beach several hours south of Tulum. It is a remote, peaceful paradise. Waves break offshore on a coral...

The hostess Carol and her assistant Fredricka are extremely helpful and charming. Best complimentary breakfast ever!!! The round rooms are so well appointed--super comfortable beds, thick sheets, fluffy towels, big shower, writing/games desk. Beautiful beach and beach foliage. Snorkeling close in. Selma is recommended for diving--she is fun and professional. Thanks for the lovely time.

We have been at Balamku for 9 nights and enjoyed the full period. We have slept very well: early in bed and up when the sun rises, still 9-10 hours sleep per night! Beautiful view from the cabaña windows and balcony. Spacious and quiet room (#9) The connection to internet worked (only) well before 8:00. Breakfast consisted of a healthy...

Balamku is wonderful. I pride myself on going to ecofriendly hotels and this place really lives up to that wonderfully. It did mean a few very minor inconveniences but to keep the world green, I was more than happy to deal with composting toilets and having to get my daily drinking water from water in the main hall each day....

Carol and Allen at the Balamku operate a beautiful facility directly on the beach where the buildings, grounds, service and scenery are amazing. We took our 13 and 16 year old children with us to this region for the first time. The staff made them feel special, smoothies every afternoon, snorkeling along the beach, hammocks to chill in and a...
