Loved the quiet, clean, room and the morning breakfasts. We had a hammock outside our room under the covered porch and what a place to be after a kong day on the beach. We did have a car and had to drive 10-15min to the nearest resort beaches. the staff was always friendly and helpful

Been there in April n may for a week or so for the past 5 years. Good staff. Clean. Safe. Met lots of folks fro different places A 10 minute walk to downtown. The Pozzole place just off the walk is great. Charlie's and Mahlgerita are the two best restaurants. Charlie's has great local food.

Great place to stay, close to town and beaches, it's a beautiful retreat with good breakfast included. It's a gem in Tulum that will not disappoint you, we stayed to days here, the only thing is that there's no TV, but who needs it when you have a great pool and beautiful gardens..🏝👍

Beautiful courtyard (all the rooms seem to be entered through the garden or courtyard). Very spacious, clean room, individually, tastefully decorated - complete with bottled water, mini-fridge, hot plate, and enough utensils to cook a simple meal. Comfortable bed, A/C worked GREAT, hot water (although the water pressure was low - that seems to be the norm in Mexico, not...

Parking next to the complex. It are rather appartments than just hotel rooms. Breakfast was included as a buffet. Nice pool. Not cheap. Helpful staff. Quiet rooms, good beds (although we had one with a few ants in it), nice garden. Don't be affraid, but accross the road there are slums.

Beautiful and peaceful place, nice staff, very helpful, nice and clean accommodations, good breakfast, great location access. The entire property is spotless and peaceful. Stay here. You won't regret it. Rent a car, however, as the property is a significant distance from tourist's attractions.

Posada Yum Kin is a rare find that will please you beyond expectation. On our first attempt to find the property by car we became frustrated - as we seemed to be driving in circles -and more than a bit concerned that I may have made a horrible choice in lodgings- the immediate vicinity is a squatters village. My daughter...

After reading several reviews of hotels in the area, we decided upon Posada Yum Kin. I have to say, it was a little challenging to find and on my first attempt, I thought I had gotten us lost. Since it was getting dark (and I'm a woman traveling solo with my 2 teenage kids) I almost turned around to find...

The staff was delightful and helpful. The grounds of the hotel are quite lovely and peaceful. The rooms are clean, comfy, and have a nice local flavor.
