Guestbook comments from the manager

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.
