We booked online for a 1 night stay. Great surprise. We rented the Deluxe Queen Suite and it was huge- airy, comfy & spacious. The Suite is in the main Courtyard right beyond the pool. Pool is not heated but even @ 9 p.m. it's a very refreshing relaxing way to end your day of travel. The free breakfast has...

We had a HUGE room on in the courtyard that was lovely, spotless and very comfortable although we had porch envy -- ours was the only one without a porch and the porches and balconies are absolutely gorgeous! Still we were lucky to get a room at the last minute and only paid 50 dollars/night which is astonishing for what...

Relaxing, peaceful place. The pool is great and the rooms are clean and spacious. Staff was helpful and friendly. Perfect 15 minute walk to downtown. We appreciated the breakfast by the pool. It was perfect before the day at the beach. The bike rental is a great option. We will be back

Posada Yum Kin is not located in city center (15 minutes walk) and this is the only disadvantage. Rooms are charming, patio looks like jungle and ground floor terraces gives you shade at noon. Very good breakfast next to quite big swimming pool (taking into account size of the hotel). Great place to relax in calm and quiet place.

Very pleasant stay at PYK, and lived up to our expectations, having read reviews and checked photos on the web. Rooms clean, garden very atmospheric, breakfast delicious, management and staff very helpful. We had a car which was useful in getting to and from the ruins, beach etc, although we did hire the bikes on one afternoon and evening. We...

If you are looking for the all-inclusive resort experience or a boutique hotel on the beach, Tulum has plenty of that. Posada Yum Kin is not that. Come here if you want a sensible, centrally located base of operations to explore the area, reasonably priced. The beach is a 10 to 15 minute drive, same with cenotes (caves with refreshing...

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved the hotel. It's small, the service is impeccable, rooms are beautiful and clean, shower has great pressure/flow, breakfasts are yummy with great variety/choice, and the kitchen in the room is helpful. This hotel is definitely a better pick for families (pool, kitchen etc), and for people who come with a car. It's...
