After staying in a party hostel nearby, this hotel was incredible. Room was clean and bright with modern design. Pool was great and the staff were super friendly and helpful!!! We only had one night left to stay here unfortunately, as I would have stayed for a week if I could!!

After a horrible experience at an all inclusive, the Kinbe was the remedy! Since we first arrived, staff treated us as if we had been beloved regulars. I did not expect the beautiful tropical environment within the hotel which was stunning and well maintained. There was no elevator as I found out from a previous review but poor Victor helped...

I have no complaints about the hotel facilities, except I would recommend taking a photo of the minibar for reference when settling the charges upon checkout. I think I was overcharged for my minibar purchases Just a general note about Playa Del Carmen- aways double check your bill, tourists are regularly ripped off and the math on your bill often...

Dear CletusMaximus Thanks for your comments, we’re glad the hotel facilities were up to standard for you. We agree with you, it is important to always double check your bill, but not only here, anywhere in the world, in any kind of business, because people are humans and can make math mistakes everywhere. We at hotel Kinbe don’t have the...

I loved this place. It was very quiet and homely. There is a lovely pool and roof terrace. The rooms were clean and modern with a rustic touch to them. They upgraded us too so I was very pleased. I liked the gardens and the fact it was within walking distance of anywhere in Playa centre.

The location of this hotel is the main reason we booked here. The hotel was right off of 5th ave where you can find all the shops and restaurants. We stayed in their loft room since it was 3of us. The bed was comfortable but very low to the ground. And the sofa bed has seen better days. It was...

Thanks for your feed-back, it will help other travelers know that we are very well located, few steps from the beach and 5th Av. It’s true that some hotels and restaurants won’t allow you to dispose T.P. in toilet, but it is not normal to have smell, so that sounds a bit strange to us. The furniture is standard and...

The rooms were quaint and clean. The girl at the desk is very helpful and friendly. Prices are fair. 1/2 block from the beach, across the street from Starbucks and the rooftop terrace were all a plus!

Dear Miss_fufi, Thanks for your comments. Playa del Carmen can be nosy at times and we’re in the middle of town, most people like the location a lot because it’s close to the beach and like you say 5th Av.

We had a king deluxe room #23. Access to the rooftop deck at night was great. Nice view of the ocean. Peaceful sleep with no noise from the clubs. The staff was so sweet, and so was the owner. We went in Nov 2015, and will return again in March this year.

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
