Our first visit in 2010 was outstanding so we booked again this year. We arrived late in the afternoon ready to relax after a long day. Unfortunately, there was a mix up with our room and our beloved #8 was taken by other guests. We were put in room #9 but were dissapointed that our room may not be available...

Hola Trish, It was great having you stay with us again. We're happy that Ricardo was able to straighten the room arrangements out for you and get you #8 again. Balvi says 'hi' and she is glad that you liked her tea. It is truly one of her specialties. The pool temp can be a bit hit and miss this...

What a gem of a hotel. Each room is a one-of....and we had a spacious well appointed Mexican tiled room next to the gorgeous clean and large swimming pool. We had a full kitchen, in case we felt like making meals at home with our pollos asados from town.... The manager was a wealth of useful information and staff all...

A great hotel that is full of atmosphere and charm. The hotel is on the outskirts of Tulum and was easy to locate; parking is available on the road outside the hotel. The centre of Tulum is about 10-15 minutes walk away so a car is probably useful in this area especially when visiting the beaches or the ruins at...

Thank you for your positive feedback, it is very much appreciated! Yes, if you have a car, which we recommend, our location is nicely situated. We chose this location to avoid downtown noise and congestion. It’s close enough to town to walk, you have a birds-eye view of the nearby ‘local flavor’ and its easily accessible to the many activities...

This hotel was by far, the best value and greatest experience we had in Mexico. The hotel is BEAUTIFUL. The beds were decently comfortable, they give you like 5gallons of water, the breakfast (included) was great, they let you use their bikes to ride to restaurants, tulum or the beach. Plus the manager gave us great advice on how to...

Thanks for your great comments. We are glad you had a great vacation and that we could be a part of it. We’re glad you found the bikes handy to get around. Yes, our location is on the edge of Tulum where our guests can experience the ‘real Tulum’ and its people.

As with all the other hotels we stayed at during our time in Mexico we used Tripadvisor to help us choose where to stay in Tulum. We finally chose Posada Yum Kin because it was the best rated property which would take a booking for only 2 nights, which is all the time we had to spare. Consequently, we did...

I had read other reviews of this hotel and was looking forwrd to staying here. After a few hours there I thought "This is why I spent all this money here?" The place is physically lovely and the rooms pretty to look at. But a hotel is more than the visual. The first room the hotelier gave me was next...

We're disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay in Tulum or at Posada Yum Kin. Frankly, this area of Mexico just isn't for everybody.

There's just good to say about this hotel. Best price-value in a while and in whole Tulum! The owner has been super-friendly and even allowed us to stay another night on the discounted rate from booking that was initially only for one night. LOVED the breakfast, cozy pool, could use the (top) snorkeling gear for free, free bikes to ride...

The hotel is beautiful, the price is great (call directly, do not book online as it is more expensive), the location is away from the noisy main street, but make sure you have a reservation confirmation as the reception tends to be a little too relaxed. The tile floors could use a good sweeping or moping, but given that you...
