We stayed here 2 nights at the end of our trip through Mexico and really enjoyed it. it is a real gem. The posada itself is perfect to relax after a busy day. Our room (nr 2 i think) was very spacious and even had a kitchennet. We really liked the hammock on our terrace. On the upperpart there is...

Ricardo was surprised to see us around noon (3 hours before check-in and 5 hours earlier than he assumed we'd arrive) but invited us to relax by the pool while they got our room ready. We inadvertently broke the rules by bringing a six-pack of (prohibited glass) bottled beer with us and dropping one down the steps to the pool...

I stayed at Posada Yum Kin during October 2012 and I had a lovely time. I was there for a week with some friends and we stayed here the whole time. The setup of the hotel was really cool. It felt like you were in the jungle with all the trees and foliage. Each room has a porch and most...

It was the perfect non-touristy, non-resort, beautiful getaway with tropical plants, a nice clean room, and peaceful location! It's not right on the beach but it was perfect for us. My husband and I found Ricardo an excellent resource for the area. The pool and breakfast were great bonuses too. We liked that it was in town (yet so quiet),...

We booked PYK for 3 nights but stayed 4 as we felt so at home. The owner upgraded us to Suite 2 which was perfect for us (a family of four). The kids loved the resident cat even though she likes to bite your toes at breakfast! Pool is lovely. We cooked each night and the kitchen is well stocked...

We had a great experience in this hotel, even though it was only for a night. The building has a very interesting design, with bridges and stairs that connect all floors and with some of the amenities. The room as spacious and well decorated, it had a Kitchenette and a big water dispenser. The only "but" has to be the...

Posada Yum Kin was such a nice surprise. You get quality service from the minute you park. We arrived later in the evening and someone came out to greet us. He gave us a quick tour of the property. Once in the room, we really appreciated the filtered water (both a water dispenser and two bottles of water), the fridge,...

A beautiful place! The pictures don't do it justice. I came here with my boyfriend and we had a hard time leaving the hotel for the city and beaches. The pool is so lovely. The breakfast is great and includes tons of fruit and pancakes and french toast. Our room was decorated so nicely and had a great balcony which...
