We extended our stay in Playa for several days. After spending a week at a big resort, this boutique hotel was a welcome surprise! The rooms are well equipped.

I booked a small room at the Kinbe, and it was seriously small. However, the room was kept spotlessly clean, with fresh towels and linens daily. The AC was excellent (remote controlled), as was the TV. The bed had a nice firm mattress, which was great for sleeping. The room had a small refrigerator with a "minibar" that was convenient...

It is not a fancy place, but perfect if you plan on spending your time out in Playa and need a comfy, clean place to get back to at night. And given the price - we couldn't have asked for more. My only suggestion is to add a hot water kettle in the rooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kinbe is a fusion of lush tropical garden setting with distinctly chic shape that gives a soaring charm in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Close to the 5 Avenida, just 50 meters from the Caribbean Sea. The impressive reception, the particular pool, the stunning waterfall and the panoramic terrace are the enchanting of the hotel. The unique shape design of the rooms offers the guests a feeling that each room was designed especially for them. ... more   less
