Tonight is our last night's stay at Na Balam. Oh, how I wanted to depart tomorrow with fond memories of this place. The property is situated on, without a doubt, the prettiest beach on isla mujeres. But a quiet room with working amenities is more important to ensure a night of restful sleep. I wish that was in store for me tonight. But it is not. Unlike the previous four nights, I get to look forward to hearing the compressor on the ground floor (room 33 is up a precarious flight of wooden steps ) turn on every 7 minutes and run for 3 minutes. I get to listen to the uneven purr of the A/C unit and to the tap tap tap of the overhead fan. I had requested a room change yesterday but that would have relocated us to near the restaurant that features music on Saturday night until 2 am. And the waitstaff in the restaurant and on the beach--if you want to have to ask two or three times for something, or feel like you are being ignored and/or treated rudely, Na Balam is your kind of place. It must be mentioned, however, that our room was spotless and once housekeeping figured out we like more than one bar of soap and replenishment to footer toiletries, things were fine. To end on another positive note--the beach here is stunningly superb.
