          Plenty of Room, but lots of short-comings

          The Na Balam Beach Hotel is an attractive garden layout on the north end of the island. Though I was told there are no other restaurants in the immediate vicinity, there are. The one on site is good, though expensive; music's good, too - blues, Cuban jazz, etc., appropriate for the time of day. The coffee is good, but the continental breakfast is cheap (e.g., no real butter). And go somewhere else on Monday night, the chef's night off.

          My "Deluxe Beach View" room (11) overlooks nothing but (noisy) ongoing construction, sand, the restaurant's roof, and palm fronds. The room is huge, but the shower/toilette facility is cramped and not very clean. Room lights are too dim to read a book by (and if you bring your own bulb, as I do, it will not fit the base). There is no WiFi in the room and in the lobby, it does not work.

          Most of the essential facilities (air conditioning, shower) work, but there are lots of things that need to be fixed or replaced; most are beyond repair (e.g., bathroom tiles and fixtures, safe that only locks half the time, router). Be careful turning on the table lamps; you could get a shock. All these shortcomings might be overlooked by groups of youngsters, but at US$ 183/night (incl. tax), I think it is a rip-off. This place is not up to international standards. The only reason to come here is the clean, soft sand beach, to which there is direct access. It is perfect for small children to swim and play in, but too shallow for the rest of us; there is no sea life.

          The staff is great! The grounds are superb but the actually room smells musty. Cool that your roof is made of palm trees but be weary of the mosquitos. ok for familys but not the best

          The map on this blog is not accurate in the details of my travel. A contributing factor in my selection of this trip was its proximity to Isla Mujeres, where there is a sculpture garden underwater. I had no assurance I would be able to get there, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

          Got to see what I came for: Jason deCaires Taylor's sculptures here. Seven years of growth. There are other artists' works as well, but this is why I came.

          You may have noticed a recurring bloggy theme evolving re boating: movement towards large heavy objects, anchors, intense drama and frantic activity, then sudden resolution followed by restorative beverages.

          That line has been heard a few times over the past few days. There are things I really like about Mexico. Surprisingly, I appreciate the police riding through town with their lights flashing, a constant presence. Army or "federale" riding in the back of pick up trucks, and this morning, patrolling the beach. No longer a developing country, it's also lost some of its charm. McDonald's, Krispy Kreme, and all that goes with it. ...

          ... room service again (3rd night in a row) we are heading to bed. Tomorrow is a big day - Jaime and I will be celebrating our 3 year anniversary. 3 years ago tomorrow we had our first date. We don't have anything planned, just more relaxing at the pool and beach. Our big plans are Whale Sharks on Sunday. Looking forward to a day where literally nothing is planned and we can just chill and not even have to look at the time.
