The Kinbe is awesomely placed in Playa del Carmen, close to quinta avenida et wonderful restaurants. If you are a scuba diver, this is the place to be, since you have 3 diving centers close by. We had a nice terrace in room 6, with partial view on the sea.

This small hotel, with 3 floors is modern and sits half a block from the beach. Staff is very helpful, and it has a 24 hour front desk. The pool and the garden are beautiful, and very well maintained. We stayed in room 3, downstairs, which I regret. The room was facing a high fence, and there is no ventilation... More

It´s a simple hotel, with little nice rooms and cheap fees. They don´t have a restaurant inside, but breakefast can be taken beside in a restaurant. Without elevators, it can be dificult if you have a lot of luggage. Although, it´s a nice hotel with a great staff, ready to help anytime (Mr. Carlos in special). If we return to... More

The room smelled like sewage - the smell came from the bath room. And the bad sheets were with stains... Also the internet in the room was very slow (low wifi signal). The front desk were very nice and helpful. My girlfriend and I would not recommend the hotel.

Don't expect elegance here, but the room was very clean and comfortable, the location (1 minute from the beach) was excellent and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly! The a/c kept the room quite comfortable, and the Wi-Fi gave me no problems at all. Our room was at the end of the interior courtyard (complete with a little patio/terrace),... More

I mainly picked this hotel for location, near the main street and bus stations. Room was OK, air conditioning worked, atmosphere was nice. Never saw anyone using the pool so I wondered if there was something wrong with it. The wifi never worked, which is really becoming an essential amenity for me. If you can't offer decent wifi, just don't... More

Staff was very friendly, room was clean, but it was impossible to get a good night sleep because of the bars at the corner. Loud music all night long. Swimming pool more decorative than for real swimming. Shower: not warm enough + jets weren't working. Airconditioning wasn't always responding either.

I enjoyed my stay at kinbe hotel. It is very well located(near avenida quinta and beach). The staff is very friendly and will give you free tickets to the nearby beach club. They were making renovations when I was there so it was noisy at times but never too early or too late.

Perfect location, nice pool, friendly staff. The rooms all have a very high standard for a quite good price. The beach is 2 minutes away - a nice swim in the morning in the sea or in the nice hotel pool is an easy thing to do. All bars, clubs and restaurants in the centre are near by. I only... More
