Cons: The beach happened to be covered by seaweed, which sadly was also the case all over the coast since Playa del Carmen. That said, we used protective neoprene shoes to walk up to a great spot where we had one of the best swim and snorkel ever!

8.8 Excellent (656 reviews)
C$ 149+

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful, simple, remote. Camilo (front desk), and Quique (restaurant) are kind, and sweet and take great care of guests. Their restaurant offered a small, very nice menu with great ceviche!
Cons: Heat got a bit overwhelming for just a fan in the room, but most places in the area are like that. Just took cold showers and laid in bed to cool off. Nobody mentions the zargazo algae problem. This algae bloom is affecting the entire eastern Yucatán coast and it makes for very undesirable beaches. It piles up and stinks pretty bad, so beach front accommodations are not worth the price, even though Almaplena has guys from sun to sun raking it up and dumping it to the sides of the property. In town Mahahual, beachfront “clubs” place a giant net perimeter in their beaches to keep algae out, so you’ll have a place to drive to to get in the sea.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and quiet place. Perfect to chill out. Jazz during breakfast - it is something I like very much
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Stoff and the place were outstanding..
Cons: The only thing I would improve is that it was really hot. I had problems sleeping. There is only one fan in the room.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: The chef was very attentive and friendly
Cons: The main issue with the stay was the staff, especially the manager of the hotel. He was rude and ignorant. He wasn’t very welcoming, when we decided to leave a night early he didn’t ask what was wrong or apologise. No offer to help with bags and no remorse about our awful experience.
7.1 Good
Pros: The room was very nice, it was kept clean and tidy. We enjoyed the balcony and the hammock. It is very peaceful.
Cons: The food could have been better. We couldn't swim at the beach because of the seaweed. We had to travel 30 minutes into town so we could swim. The wifi connection isn't very good.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Rooms nice and clean. Awesome location 20min cab ride away from Mahahual downtown. Beach pretty much for yourself + good restaurant.
Cons: Beach/Ocean was Full of seaweed. Restaurant did not serve many „local“ dishes. Quite expensive restaurant.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: It was very clean and nice. Kind staff. Beautiful place.
Cons: There was no hot water at the shower. And many insects...
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely everything! It’s a little paradise.
Cons: Internet was very poor and at the hotel they didn’t accept the payment done with the credit card. I thought I had already paid through booking, but when I arrived there, I realized it was not like that. They asked for cash, but I didn’t have enough and they proposed me to the payment through PayPal which without internet was kind of difficult. I had to put together euros, dollar and pesos and they charged me pretty much for the exchange rate. It’s a nice place and the staff is ok, but be prepared and go there with all the pesos that you need because other payments at the end are not an option.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Chilaquiles verdes were amazing! Rubensen was a great addition to our stay-showing us where to snorkel, being pleasant and talkative... Amazing location; saw more stars that I have ever seen
Cons: Food at dinner on our first night was super heavy on the salt. Asked without salt from then on and food was really good the rest of the visit! Was super excited to have a balcony, especially with stars and an almost-full moon, however it seemed unstable and had parts of railing missing. Lastly, there was a bit construction happening to add a deck and pool looks like. Would have loved to be there when finished!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place with great straff!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed our stay at Balamku Inn. We were welcomed and looked after with hospitality and warmth. The breakfast was sufficient and delicious. If we had any problems with the room or any questions or requests, the hosts were ready to help. Further, we appreciated the ecological aspect of this hotel. The place is out of Mahahual's town center, which we considered an advantage. It was a pleasure to fall asleep and wake up with the sound of the ocean waves!
Cons: I really wouldn't want to complain since we were satisfied with our stay. Maybe it was a bit disappointing that the sea was not calm enough to really enjoy swimming and kayaking on the hotel beach. Of course, it would be lovely to have a restaurant at the hotel but then again, there are other places serving good food close by.
9.2 Excellent
Cons: Wasn't warm water, the door knob didn't work in bathroom. Nothing repaired during our visit.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The property location is great if you want to get away from town and enjoy peace and quiet. The staff was excellent always helpful. The coffee in the morning was great!
Cons: All was well except that which the property nor anyone else could control; there was a lot of seaweed on the beach.

6.7 Good

Cons: The beach area is not the best. Very better few minutes walk from the hotel No water available to fill bottle. Need to ask the bar but they provide free without issue
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything great!!!.... love to stay here....
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A lovely hotel with a nice restaurant. Originally we were assigned a room which was quite crampy and enclosed, looking into the inner patio. For a higher fee, they then transferred us to a lovely room with its own private terrace on the top floor, overlooking the beach. This was top notch, I recomend these rooms for sure. We rented bikes right in front of the hotel, so could cycle around. Hotel is not right in the centre of town, which is actually better, as a little quieter, and away from all the cruise visitors of the town.
Cons: Had an unpleasant discussion with the manager upon checking in, as they wouldnt honour the discount made on booking.com for the newly upgraded room, except if we paid by cash. Even though the payment online had been made using credit card. This put us in a scramble to find cash, as there are not many ATMs in town...
4.6 Okay

6.3 Good
Pros: The balcony has a nice view
Cons: The are no chairs on the balcony, what's the purpose of it then? Also, there is no wifi even though the ad states otherwise. You can be lucky an catch some wifi in the hallway but let's not lie to each other- it is not wifi in the room.
5.8 Okay
Pros: It was possible to get beach towels against a deposit. The owners try to manage the hotel environmentally-friendly and there is a small library that you can consult. The prices are alright for Mahahual.
Cons: There was a horrible smell in the bathrooms which made them barely usable. The matress was inclined to one side so that u had the feeling that u were falling off the bed throughout the night. The rooms were pretty small. Some of the lady staff was just incredibly uninterested, not able to respond to greetings and ignoring the guests by and large. There was no good communal space where one could sit and converse. The AC leaked water drops unto the bed.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed at this place for just one night and there was nothing we had to complain about. This place is not very luxury or super comfortable but it has anything you need if you're looking for a clean place to sleep and shower. The location is great as you're down at the nicest beach at Mahahual within 2 minutes.

The view of the ocean to the front and the mangroves to the back was wonderful.

Cons: There is not a real parking, but we could park just in front of the reception... (low season)
8.8 Excellent
Pros: This small but charming hostel was very close to the ADO "station" (not clearly indicated). It was very quiet there. I shared a 6-bed-mixed-dorm with two girls who also spoke German which was pure luck! The staff was kind and patient though not fluent in English. The shower was not really strong and sometimes you had to wait a while until the tank of the toilette was filled but overall the accommodation was clean. The locker was spacious and right next to the bed.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Location is good Shower was good Air con worked well
Cons: We were grated by 2 giant cockroaches in our bed when we entered the room. The guy at the reception came with a broom and bug spray and killed them. Since he saw my girlfriend was quite upset by the situation he was kind enough to change our room. The other room looked okay but we preferred checking out a day early and move to another place the next morning just to be safe. Also no toilet paper in the toilet. And WiFi works but it will continuously disconnect and reconnect.
8.2 Excellent
Pros: Close to main area, restaurants,shops and beach,clean room
Cons: Uncomfortable bed. Not premium bedding. Common area next to room door so I had other guests sitting outside my room. Although they were quiet and went to rooms at decent hr.

7.1 Good
Pros: The room was okay, we were allowed to switch bunkbeds. No nice atmosphere. Airco only at night.

Pros: the location is amazing (remember that it is a bit secluded from already secluded Mahahual) and the hotel itself is rather clean with great views of the water which is only a few steps away! i thought i'd utilize the pool when the sun went down but it is just OK - it's rather stale. great breakfast included as well and the staff was very nice and courteous. when i was on the beach, he even cut down a coconut for me to drink! they even have a good solid collection of DVDs you can watch at night.

Great bed, good fridge, nice to have satellite tv with some English channels, right in front is very good snorkeling if it's NOT windy which makes the water very murky. They lend you safety floats so boats can see you. Nice hammocks on beach in shade and in water too.
Cons: It was not near a $100 Cdn. hotel. Older building of below average quality. Everything was basic. 1st coffee maker had no filter and was filthy. They gave us a much better one when I asked. Bottom sheet was torn right where you lie. we had to get it changed right away. A needless hassle for guests. We can't tip a maid who prepares a room for guests like that. Only 1 bedside lamp with broken switch and very poor light. We were surprised by the 4% fee for credit card after we had paid. It should be mentioned in booking.com listing. We would have paid cash if we knew.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved this hotel, when we arrived we were greeted with the utmost professionalism and kindness. Susy and renata were a great host and went above and beyond expectations. The facilities were right on the beach and a great location, close to town but far enough from all the rowdy tourists.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff,nice people and helpful.
7.9 Good
Pros: I like the service provided from the staff members they were very friendly and assisted in all they could.
Cons: There was no television in my room but apart from that the room was good.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Perfect for those who want to get off the malecon, the boardwalk in Mahahuel, and yet be close to the action. A five minute walk gets you to the malecon. Staff was friendly and happy to help out with a few requests.
Cons: The pillows are rubbish.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very helpful and we really enjoyed being served breakfast on the beach
Cons: The water pressure of shower to clean off the sand from the beach wasn’t very good
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Yes, you do have a pool...but you failed to mention its a kiddie size pool. And the fact that multiple families and /or guests won't fit all at the same time due to its size, etc.
Cons: Beach access was perfect. However, you slightly exaggerated about your pool, which was one of the essential features we wanted during our stay.
7.9 Good
Pros: Loved the beach and snorkelling and use of the kayaks in the sea. We felt we were the right side of town (away from the port) so the bars and restaurants were quieter. The hotel had bikes we could use to cycle into town
Cons: Ideally would have liked a better/bigger pool
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: The toilets did not have toilet seats. The pool was green. The beachfront was not kept clean.

7.9 Good
Pros: Employees all very friendly! Alfonso runs this property, was very helpful with our questions! Rooms were clean, and I can't say enough good things about all employees of the property! We were English speaking only, while almost everyone was Spanish speaking, so keep in mind your conversations may take a little longer, but again we were happy with the people that worked there! Enjoy yourself, don't sweat the little stuff, and you'll have a great stay! Was too windy/cold for us to swim while we were there, but pool, reef, and beach out front looked clean, and well maintained.
Cons: Older property, some small issues, but employees were anxious to help, or fix any problems!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I loved the staff, they were very friendly and they made me feel like home
Cons: I didn’t like the sargasso
4.2 Okay
Pros: Leaving...
Cons: What didn't? Personnel, except manager, doesn't speak English. The pool is not clean. Less parking space. Didn't change sheets. How can they present themselves as a four star restaurant? Besides. The smell in Mahahual is terrible. The heavily seawed beaches smell like rotten eggs. A penetrant smell that wakes you up in the morning. Don't go here!
4.6 Okay
Pros: pool was good
Cons: the room wasn’t cleaned, too far from the city, dirty beach

5.0 Okay
Cons: The foul odor of the decaying algae was unbearable. We booked a hotel with a balcony but never used it once. The only way to survive was to close all the windows and rely on the air con. All the other hotels are a bit further from the beach and the restaurants/beach clubs located in front of them did clean all the algae daily so it didnt stink. The hotel is at the very end of the promenade right before the stone pier so the algae will concentrate there so even if they tried to do something about them it would be Sisyphean labour. In the season of algae avoid at all costs!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything
7.9 Good
Pros: it is the ONLY hotel in Mahahual, that is Directly on the Beach, and you do not need to cross the street to go to the Beach. Therefore it has a good view. Also it is a bit away from the other facilities, and therefore you do not feel surrounded by a million tourists all the time. the view from the roof also
Cons: While it is directly on the beach, the beach is not a good swimming location. the internet is FAIR the price is a bit high for the quality. the staff are nice, but he is not alot of attention to detail in the management, -the roof is nice, but not cleaned, so cluttered with junk -the beach is not cleaned like some other Hotels do
5.8 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: The shower, doesn’t have a separation in between toilet and shower so the water is all over the place.
6.7 Good
Pros: Location is good, staff is helpful
Cons: Only 3 sunbeds (we were 6) in bad condition. You can not laying in the sun, because sunbeds are old, the ground is not clean. The water also not clean in front of the hotel. No hanger in the room, in the bathroom, no chair. The armchairs in the lobby are too old. So equipments and beach would have a little refurbishment
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Privacy, location, staff service, suite.
Cons: Internet service was not so good.
4.2 Okay
Pros: View from the room.
Cons: The amenities you posted were not true! There was no restaurant on site. There was no bar. There was no wet bar. There was a tiny TV that usually didn't work. Had to move to a different room because AC didn't work. Only one of the ceiling lights out of 4 worked. Shower did not have a curtain or door, nor was there any shelf in shower to set toiletries. There was no tissue (Kleenex), only toilet paper. The only toiletry included was shampoo and a little bar soap. Not enough towels. No place to get ice- had to buy it. Place was very old. Beach was covered in sargasm- dead seaweed that smelled terrible. Could not use the beach. Further down the sidewalk, closer to town, resorts kept their beaches raked and clean.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's a very calm place right next to the beach
Cons: Didn't include breakfast
4.2 Okay
Pros: Mahahual is a great place to visit. The son of the owner helped us find good places to eat and a place to get our laundry done.
Cons: THE SMELL! The hotel is located next to the pier, where all the algae/seagrass collects. The smell was really bad outside the room and even inside - even with the windows closed. Other hotels in Mahahual try to remove as much seagrass as possible every morning, but Porto Coral doesn't seem to bother. Even if this was a great hotel - which this is not - the smell makes this a very bad choice. We walked up and down the beach multiple times. Nowhere was the smell as bad as in this hotel. Other things, we didn't like: - When you shower, the entire bathroom is flooded. - The aircon keeps cooling until you shut it off, even if you set a specific temperature - The TV is only 19inch. Smallest TV I have seen in quite a while. - The windows can easily be opened from the outside, because the locks are broken. They did a quick fix in our room, but that seems to be a problem in all the rooms. - Wifi in the room works sometimes, most times it doesn't - Ground floor "sea view" rooms have a view of trees and sea grass on the beach. Not much "sea". I feel sorry to rate this hotel so badly, because the owner seems like a nice guy, but I cannot recommend this place in good conscience.
6.3 Good
Pros: Very spacious room with kitchenette
Cons: There was no electricity for several hours and no AC very close to bad smelling beach

4.6 Okay
Pros: Location would be acceptable if they hadn't had the seaweed, they don't clean it.
Cons: The staff was really not up for international people, no English speaking person and I had to call some numbers so that someone could give the key, even if we arrived during the opening hour. The same happened when we left, I just left the key hanging there. The room didn't feel clean and they didn't empty the trashbin during our stay which can become disgusting in Mexico.
