The Grand Slam Lodge is located on the beach front in the small fishing village of Punta Allen, about a hundred miles south of Cancun, in theprotected eco biosphere of Sian Ka’an.
Facing the Carribean Ocean, the lodge offers one of the best locations for a fishing holiday in the Yucatan. The lodge is without doubt one of the finest you can stay in and it provides a professionally run and managed fishing and guiding programme for anglers wanting to fish the unspoilt waters of Ascension Bay and beyond.
Accommodation is in one of the six beach front villas. Each villa has two separate rooms featuring contemporary interiors. The ground floor unit has two king-size beds, an ocean-view Jacuzzi, and a wrap-around deck with lounge chairs and a hammock. The second level bedroom also has two king-size beds, a living area, and a balcony with a hammock. In addition, there are personal rod racks for each fisherman to store their gear and equipment. Each room has a safe for valuables, 24-hour electricity and hot water and no noisy generators at night. There is a flat screen satellite TV, DVD, wifi internet connection, an ipod docking station for music and a mini bar.
Dining at the lodge is in the Kai restaurant where the head chef uses fresh local ingredients. Every night, you will have a choice of locally caught fish or lobster, steak and other options. After a long day's fishing, you won't go hungry! There is aslo an area to relax with soft chairs where you can watch the ocean.
You can dine inside, in the dining-room, or outdoors on the covered deck overlooking the sea. There is no set time for meals and no buffets at Kai Restaurant you can eat at the time which suits you and enjoy cooked-to-order meals served to you by the waiters.
