                                We really enjoyed our stay at Balamek. The house was the perfect size for our group and was within walking distance to everything in town so we did not need to drive that much, which was nice with a large family. We really enjoyed hanging out around the pool and kayaking in the bay. The staff was great and really helpful. We will be back!

                                There were eight of us that rented the villa for the week. It was large enough to give everyone their space, but small enough that we all felt connected. To wake up every morning, sit with a cup of coffee, watch the ocean and talk with close friends...it doesn't get better than that! The Villa is in a nice spot. about 3/4 mile from the main beach, many quality stores and nice restaurants.

                                My family rented Villa Balam Ek in August 2009 for a family vacation. Overall, we had an amazing experience. The Villa is very well maintained and in a great location. Though the Villa is not on the "beach", it is on the ocean. We took the opportunity to do some kayaking right outside the villa with the free kayaks that were provided. The ocean-front setting is very beautiful, especially when enjoying it from the pool. The beach is perhaps a 15-20 minute walk from the house, but the drive is not even 3-5 minutes. The accommodations fit our family quite well - and it was great to have AC in August. The bedroom downstairs accommodates a couple. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a very large bathroom and a great balcony. The “main” area in the master bedroom accommodates a couple quite well and possibly a small child. There is a separate “wing” in the master bedroom that has a twin bed. This is great for the extra bed. However, the only negative side to this small extra “wing” is that it got quite hot at night – for some reason the AC didn’t penetrate that area. The other bedroom upstairs fits 2 couples and 1 child quite well. The staff at Villa Balam Ek was vey helpful and friendly. Ingrid was always available and willing to help. Overall, we had a great experience and would recommend this place to all our friends.

                                Left on 02/18/2010 for a stay in July 2009 We received a very efficient service, everybody was ready to help us. The home is espacious, confortable and well equiped. Akumal is a paceful residencial area on the pristine water of the Caribean Sea. We had a lot of fun diving, snorkeling, fishing, exploring and we had a delicious dinner at a small italian restaurant palapa. We had a big adventure exploring a cave with a "cenote" in the jungle and we went to visit the mayan ruins too. But our best moment of the day was to enjoy the bright stars and the fresh breeze after dinner close to the ocean.

                                Paradise Found! What a beautiful location and perfect house, where we had the most exquisite time, thank you. Waking up to the view and sounds of the magical Caribbean ocean with those amazing colors which quite frankly I did not know really existed, and your spacious house, with those comfortable beds and luxurious design bathrooms; not to mention the common spaces which allowed all of us to be taken to perpetual bliss during our stay. Akumal is so full of fun and exciting things to do from swimming with turtles who are almost your size, to mind blowing scuba adventures, beaches like non other, fishing and Sailing. The house keeper made us feel like kings. Defiantly the best vacation we have ever had, thank you!

                                Balam Ek is the Villa for excellence to spend to spend a great tima. It is very well equipped located at the "heart" of Akunal. Close to the main restaurants, bars and shops, you can forget about your car while you are enjoying this beautful house since you can walk every where. The caretakers are very nice and gentle and keep the house and garden neat. The house is full of light, with big terrace and spacious areas in general. What I didn´t like is that I only stay there one week, I would like to stay for ever.

                                I have stayed at perhaps 20 different villas between Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Villa Balam Ek is my favorite. It carries with it an established charm wed with greatest of convenience and service. Its within stumbling distance of the greatest swinging bar in the Mayan Riviera with great dancing and food under the moonlight. Its close enough to the village of Akumal that you can walk to the dive shop and best restaurants. There are all new bathrooms with the finest fixtures and all the amenties up and downstairs that you could ever want. We particularly like that side apartment when we bring even more friends. A very safe, comfortable and exceptionally clean home away from home.

                                First of all the house itself was just AMAZING!!!, very clean, with a very good taste on the deco, everythhing what we needed!!!! Then, the service was there 100% with out feeling inconfortable or over exceeded. The general manager Ingrid had a personal attention at our arrival making us feel already on vacations with out ANYTHING to worry about! and finally, the view, the athmosphere and the whole resort specially Gonzalos's Original Dive Shop gave us what we were looking for: HAVE FUN!!!

                                This is the second time we have stayed in Villa El Balam. We came with 11 people, including 4 teenagers and 1 child. The house is large and kept in immaculate condition. The housekeeper and staff are all you could ask for and we have availed ourselves of antionia's excellent cooking as well. We would not hesitate to return again and highly recommend it. Travel Services of akumal are very reliable and easy to deal with. All in all a great vacation.
