        beautiful spacious rooms, great access to beach, clean

        resturant waiters rude and expect tip and tell you if you dont, they double charged me by not returning my deposit and being very difficult to contact

      • Couple

        The location, Na Balam has the best beach of all isla mujeres, it is very nice to have breakfast in their restaurant.

        It is very expensive for what it really offers, it is old and has not been renovated since long. Things like ac and shower do not work properly. Pool water was not clean . Rooms do not have tv, hair dryer, iron, mini fridge or any other service you might expect for that price.

      • Couple

        I liked how the location which is right at north beach and at the entrance of Avalon hotel. Close to main strip for restuarants/night life.

        The beds were very uncomfortable, lots of greenery so as comes mosquito's, I was bit all night as they get into room through window/wall cracks. Internet is not true internet, it is only available in the outside lobby where you again will get chewed up by mosquito's and if your luck enough to get internet service, it is very intermittent.

        Very good location right at the best spot of Playa Norte. The staff was very helpful and found us a better room with a kingsize bed upon request the second day. Nice restaurant and beach beds in the front. Nicely build and comfortable hotel probably of the best in Isla Mujeres

        The poolside rooms are not so good, not the best value. Ours was like a hut so the roof had some small holes. Not good if you are afraid of little lizards!

      • Couple
        7.4

        great location and very nice room with pool view, an individual terrace and a hammock; very kind and professional receptionist; beds on the beach; very nice and friendly pool cleaner (we really liked the guy)

        Beach restaurant staff (rude and unprofessional); Check out issues (higher price than agreed on Booked.net and some receipts from restaurant for a dinner we have never had) - note that the receptionist helped us to figure this issue out and eventually we were not charged for them.

      • Group of friends

        The location of the hotel is nice and the staff are friendly and nice.

        The beds were hard as a rock and it is expensive compared to better hotels on Isla Mujeres for what you get. They changed our reservation for the room type twice without notification and had our billing messed up. None of this was a show or a real big deal but I wouldn't return.

      • Family with children

        The ambiance was very pleasant, a bit rustic, a bit ethnic, not in the least bit kitchy or affected.The location was amazing, one literally stepped out of the room and onto a beautiful sandy beach.

        It would have been great to have a small fridge and a coffee machine, two things that most hotels offer and that would have made eating in more viable. I guess eating in is not something the hotel wanted to encourage. They have a restaurant on site, which is in my opinion overpriced and overrated, but nevertheless quite nice.

        Location

        Stuff was not helpfull, we did not have hot water and blankets.

        9.2

        I loved being right on the beach. The yoga classes were excellent. The feel of a small hotel in paradise was just right for me.

        It was a bit of a walk from the main restaurants and there is no dinner at Na Balam.

      • Couple
        8.2

        Excellent location, right on the beach. Very nice staff. Clean and cozy.

        There were maintenance works at progress when we were there so it was a bit noisy...

      • Family with children
        10.0

        wonderful service and a home from home and elegant and casual at the same time - glorious spot

        better to have hot coffee and more of it in the morning more staff in kitchen in the morning regular coffe on tap would be a good idea

      • Family with children
        5.4

        I wouldn't say is a 4 stars hotel. The location is excellent.Nice gardens. The beach is so beautiful. Other than that, the food at the restaurant so,so, and the service is really bad. The room was clean but the towels very old. Very basic.

        I though that would be 4 stars like they advertised in the internet.

      • Group of friends

        Really beautiful location, right on ab exotic beach. Very clean rooms, close to the town center.

      • Family with children
        5.0

        The initial impression is tropical and relaxing.

        We had a negative experience - our reservation was lost by the hotel. Because there was a room available, they offered us the walk-in rate for 2 nights out of the original 5 nights...We had to find our own accommodations for the other 3 nights with no assistance from Na Balam or from Booked.net, for that matter. We lost money, time and experienced a lot of stress from this situation. Observations during our shortened stay indicated that Na Balam is not what it once was. We were extremely disappointed as to how our situation was handled and that, instead of a calming and restful vacation, the place and staff were stressful and unaccommodating. I will not recommend Na Balam, period. And the staff compared their hotel to Ixchel Resort down the beach... Not even close. By the way, the food there is expensive and you have to bring your own drinking water. And the yoga is extra...

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        The location is perfect, at the probably nicest part of the island at the beach. It is a sweet, romantic hotel (little bungalows). The rooms are big and there is a small terrace with chairs and hammock belonging to every room. The hotel staff is very friendly. It offers towels for the beach for free and there are chairs, tables and big sun loungers at the beach also for free.

        We had a room on the upper floor and the roof consists of straw, therefore it can be a little bit dirty. Staff at the restaurant wasn't guest friendly at all. It should be a 4* hotel, which we certainly wouldn't rate that high as there is basically no luxury.
