“Fue excelente”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2014

Estuve en Balam Ek una semana y debo decir que todo fue impresionante. La hospitalidad de los locales, la ubicación, las actividades y el servicio fueron simplemente extraordinarios. No hay palabras para describir bien lo que vivimos, simplemente que todo estuvo genial. La casa es realmente cómoda, cabe mucha gente, la alberca está súper, y la vista no tiene comparación. Recomiendo 100% este lugar, el trato es increíble. También recomiendo abordar el velero de "Akumal Dive Shop", ya sea el Sunset o el Robinson Crusoe. Y, si se sienten aventureros, asistir a algún curso de buceo, o siplemente ir a bucear con los instructores de la misma tienda. Definitivamente Balam Ek es un lugar al que regreso sin dudarlo, con ganas de hacerlo todo de nuevo, y más.

“Beautiful House”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2014

With a perfect view of the blue ocean and a really nice service we fully enjoyed our stay in akumal, the Hause is clean, comfortable, with a nice view and a pool. I can just say good things about it, is well located, just one minute walk from the restaurant and bar la buena vida and 5 minutes walk from the beach and the dive shop. Thanks for everything

“Beautiful ocean front house”

I stayed there for a weekend with a couple of friends and I loved it, it's really beautiful and clean. The views are amazing and make the whole experience really relaxing.

“Spendid serenity in dream-like villa by the sea.”

Villa Balam Ek is so beautiful, a super location in akumal, a safe secure neighborhood, walking distance to a fine beachfront restaurant. They have wireless so I could stay in touch with business, while I was restoring my body and brain. Love the owners feature one of the finest wastewater garden at the entrance which cleans up all the human sewage from the villa, protecting the water table which is so close to the surface in akumal. Human sewage is the number one cause of excess nutrients impacting coastal waters causing algae blooms and other threats to coral reefs. The owners of Villa Balam Ek care deeply for the environment and support many important efforts to protect the reefs along the Rivera Maya. I could not recommend a finer place to stay and better people to support.

Nous sommes restés 1 semaine dans cette superbe villa ! Tout y est charmant, bien fait et devant la mer. Quoi dire ? sinon que c'est peut être l'accueil avec le grand sourire de Ingrid, le personnel toujours discret mais efficace ou encore que tout soit à proximité qui a fait de ce voyage un moment inoubliable. J'ai déjà reservé pour l'année prochaine...

From the moment you enter Balam'Ek you know you are in a special place. The landscaping provides an enchanting setting and surrounds the home with a lush blanket. We have stayed there 3 times in the last 2 years and hope to make another trip late this year. The owners are thoughtful in providing recommendations for anything you might need. This home can easily accommodate 3 couples or a large family. Go for the view, stay for the comfort and convenience of charming akumal!

We enjoyed our family stay at Villa Balam Ek and the thoughtfulness to make sure we had everything we needed and for the care the housekeeper(forgot her name) gave our "home away from home". Never saw the groundskeeper do much,but she worked hard. There is so much to see and do in the area that it won't be long before we'll be back again. I am a travel agent and have been blessed to have seen many wonderful places and akumal is by far one of my favorites. The Mexican people are so friendly and hard working and really try to help you out in any way they can !

Response from the owner Dear Judy, Thank you very much for your message and for choosing our home for your family vacation in Akumal. We hope to welcome you again soon. Best Regards, Ingrid

I've been in Villa balam Ek 4 or 5 day in may 2013. This house in front of the carribean sea, 20 meters only from the 30°C water is very lovely with very sweet pool. You'll find inside 3 room and you'll have a great stay here with your family or friends. Also, only 500 m far from from the house a very professional dive center. A 5 star place !!!

Response from the owner Thank you Francois for your message. We hope you can visit us again soon. Hasta pronto
