We travel to Playa every year and have stayed at various resorts during our stay. This year, after spending a week at a resort, we decided to stay a few extra nights in downtown Playa. Kinbe Hotel is a small, clean and easy access hotel right in the middle of downtown Playa. It's off 5th Avenue down the street from... More

If you are on the high maintenance side of things, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. However, f you want to feel the local life up close go for it. The location is amazing, customer service is great, and the overall architectural style is Playa themed. Some rooms have uncomfortable shower floors but hey, it's playa and they use volcanic rocks...

We were skeptical at staying at a small hotel but the staff made our stay very comfortable.The hotel was very clean and the layout of the hotel was unique allowing us to enjoy the out doors. This hotel is very close to the beach and to the restaurants. The hotel staff (Carlos) helps us rent a... More

Pros: staff was great, location was awesome!!! Close to everything and anything! Can't ask for more.... Cons: our room was filled with baby Mosquitos, the room seemed a bit run down. In general we enjoyed our stay in playa del carmen, the hotel room alone could have gotten a little TLC. I think it needs a little can of fresh... More

I stayed here in May for 2 nights in room 4. There was a terrible smell of dirty drains in the bathroom. The room faces out to a garden and there are no mosquito guards on the windows so they easily got into the room. Our t.v. didn't work. I had a long flight the day I was checking out... More

Perfect small hotel. Short walk to beach, and popular 5th Avenue restaurants and shops. Pleasant and helpful staff. Good value. Comfortable king size beds. Our 2nd floor room had a nice private patio overlooking the lush garden.

Stayed here for four nights. Great unique hotel. We chose the loft room which was nice but the shower had a rock floor which was very uncomfortable. Could also hear the booming of the bass of the nearby clubs all night. Very annoying.

Room was nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay generally speaking. We spent 2 nights there and paid not more than 150 usd. Staff is friendly and helpful. Choose this hotel if your budget is limited and you are visiting playa del carmen for a few days only.

We loved the room- our own private sun terrace, great quirky design features and great location to reach anything in Playa - restaurants, clubs, very close to the beach and free entry to the nearest beach club, and only a short walk to the ferry or coach terminals. The staff were really helpful too.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kinbe is a fusion of lush tropical garden setting with distinctly chic shape that gives a soaring charm in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Close to the 5 Avenida, just 50 meters from the Caribbean Sea. The impressive reception, the particular pool, the stunning waterfall and the panoramic terrace are the enchanting of the hotel. The unique shape design of the rooms offers the guests a feeling that each room was designed especially for them. ... more   less
