I did emergency booking in this place for my last year week vacations, essentially because I was very late and it seems to be the only available place by the time. I have to be honest, when I arrived I was little bit dissapointed. As an office employee I was looking for other kind of amenities to keep on running...

We appreciate your time to send this great review. Balamku is magical for those who absorb the place and its location. A perfect place to relax as you say. So thank you for this . Just to add, restaurants are 5 minutes away and coolers are available for your drinks. We are glad you had such a good time here.

Good staff and well maintained stretch of beach. A somewhat wild location, large round cabin overlooking the Caribbean which has a fulsome roar to it at night. Nicely away from the main drag of town along a rough beach road.

We stayed two nights in the Balamku Inn and it was a wonderful experience! It is a cute and charming place with a beautiful main house for a delicious breakfast and a few very charming Bungalows where you can sleep in very comfortable and very private rooms. Since they have a private beach and the whole place is full of...

The location of this inn is 5km from the main town however , if you don't have a car it is not accessible . Even then the roads are bumpy and it takes longer than what you'd normally take for that distance . There is nothing in the vicinity and it's pitch dark when night falls so when you are...

Our Inn is 5 minutes walk to our neighbourhood restaurants and a 30 min walk to town. There are lots of taxis, a local bus and bikes in town to rent. The rooms are cleaned every day and new towels, bed linens etc are in every room. What is not in any room here is AC as it is not...

That place is absolutely unbelievable! Like a heaven far from civilisation, but with good wi-fi connection;) Almost nobody around for several km. Our room was right on the beach, we could watch sunrise from hammock 24hours/day. Breakfast is tasty too. Towels seemed to be not fresh...

This is a hard review for me to write as the manager, Mónica, was very nice to me and yet ... I left feeling disappointed that we had driven so far just to find an extremely dirty and spoiled beach. This was not the hotel's fault, though. Hurricane Earl had hit the Caribbean two weeks and a few days before...

Sadly you experienced a wash up following a major hurricane that passed us on its way to Belize. With this turbulance, the sea gave us what People are responsible for: plastic. The gardeners worked very hard and did manage to get our place looking fabulous that week.

This place was gorgeous. We rented the bungalow on the beach and would not have changed a thing. The private beach was right in front of the bungalow with lots of places to sit and even a swing and some really comfortable hammocks. There was a nice breeze off of the Caribbean Sea that kept the flies and mosquitoes away....
