It features a stunning ocean view all the way to Cozumel; queen bed; palapa covered bath with shower; mini-bar with fridge, coffee maker & microwave; and a rooftop terrace. There's also a 'bonus' bedroom with a bunk bed, private bath, and a separate entrance (suitable for older children, teens, or agile adults who don't require a view).
The pool is in a beautiful tropical garden and features two waterfalls and two separate 'play pools' for children. There is a large covered terrace with lounges, patio chairs and barbeque for your enjoyment.
Our attentive and friendly manager, Esperanza, and the housekeeping staff will make you feel welcome and do all they can to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.
A NOTE ABOUT THE 'PLAYA': THE BEACH IS BACK! With help from the federal government, a massive beach-renewal project has restored and augmented our gorgeous beach from one end of Playa to the other. Previous guests will remember that storms had removed much of the sand over the last few years, leaving 'pocket' beaches and little room for strolling and beachcombing. That has all changed! You can now walk from town all the way to the end of the Playacar hotel zone (about 2 miles) along the smooth sandy shore. Seeing is believing--so come on down and see for yourself!

We are supposed to be retired but find ourselves busier than ever. We've been sharing our Playa del Carmen properties with satisfied guests since we built our first villa (Casa Colel Luna) in 1996. In 2001, we added this property, Casa Balam y T'ul. Since then we've acquired a small coffee farm in Kona, Hawaii, so we are kept busy working on the farm, relaxing and exploring in the Yucatan, and being with family in Santa Cruz, California.
We bought the property in 1993 when Playa del Carmen was a still a sleepy town off the tourist path. The location next to a Mayan ruin with a view of the sparkling Caribbean was just magical and irresistable--and it still is.
We love our beautiful beach--just a 1-minute walk away--with its fine white sand and warm, clear water. Playa is such a fun town, very laid back, but also sophisticated--with fabulous restaurants and great shoping and entertainment. We love exploring hidden beaches, cenotes, Mayan ruins, and remote villages. The diving and snorkeling spots are some of the best in the world and easily accessible. Staying home and relaxing in a hammock or floating in the pool with a cool Corona or margarita is pretty good too.
Archeological sites, Mayan ruins, Caves & Cenotes, Skydiving, Beachcombing, Bodysurfing & Boogie Boarding, Snorkeling, SCUBA, just Relaxing in your hammock, swaying in the tropical breeze & sipping a refreshing festive beverage!
