It was clean, I felt safe, got good tips from Alain and met interesting fellow travelers. I took s taxi to the beach for $25 pesos which was quick and easy. I liked being in authentic neighborhood. 2 dogs, 1 cat that were sweet.

Joan stayed in the room #1 (not in the room #3 as mentioned in the review), an authentic Mayan hut that has been converted in a room, with an added large bathroom.

I selected Casitas Kinsol on the spur of the moment and without much time to search for a place to stay during a spur of the moment trip. I liked everything about it! It's small (8 casitas), cozy, clean, charming and quaint. Easy to get to from the main bus terminal or by taxi. Located on a main street, once...

My wife and I stayed in more than 10 hotels during our honeymoon in Mexico, and Casitas Kinsol was by far the most beautiful and cozy one of all! We slept in the Mayan Palapa they have, and the way Alain and Christine have decorated and furnished the place show how much love and care they put to their business....

I had a great experience staying at Casitas Kinsol as it was a beautiful, very unique and local guest house. It was clean and inspiring. The staff (people and animals) were very friendly and helpful. Great connections to taxis and local food. I will go back when in the area.

Booked the smallest room for a couple of nights and it is nice and cozy but not that small at all. The owner is always available and the location is also good. Good value for money and perfect for a relaxing time If you're renting a car it's very easy to reach, only 20 minutes from the airport. I would...

The guest house is on a back street of the highway with many places to eat authentic Mexican food close by at reasonable prices. We had the smallest room on the ground floor for the past 2 years. It is basic and tastefully decorated, the bed is very comfortable and the room is adequate. It is not far from the...

Well worth your visit to the not-beach-front, "wrong side of town"! Every room is a unique work of art and spotlessly clean, the European hosts are a delight, their dogs are friendly, and their cat entertains. All the guests we've met in the communal courtyard have been interesting. Very good food in local outdoor cafes. Less than 1/2 the price...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casitas Kinsol is a Guest House with 8 rooms for rent in Puerto Morelos, on the Mayan Riviera, 25 minutes South of the airport international of Cancun and 4 blocks from the main bus stop in town. It resides in the heart of the “Colonia” of Puerto Morelos conveniently located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen and only 2 miles to the beach. Surrounded by many eateries, grocery stands and stores, it offers 8 romantic rooms and bungalows: 4 with kitchenettes and 4 without. All the rooms have basic amenities at low prices for double occupancy. The rooms come with private baths, hot showers, air fans and a unique décor designed by the owners. Most of them come with WI-FI. Room #1:The Master Room is (as well as the room 8) an authentic Mayan hut where Mayan people used to leave until the early 1990's. It has been converted to a large room with its private bathroom. The thatched roof was replaced by a stucco one with two skylights. Two small windows were added to bring some more light to the room. It has cement floor and tiles in the large bathroom. It is a very large standalone, ground floor, hut style bungalow, complete with a full-size (double) bed and one twin-size (single) bed, so it will accommodate 3 persons. Private bathroom and kitchenette. It offers a refrigerator and two burner stove-top but no ovens or microwave. No microwave or standard ovens, no dishwasher either. This room has a front door allowing you to exit onto the boulevard without having to go through the grounds but also a backdoor giving you access to the gardens and relaxation areas as well. ... more   less
