The hotel was clean and the people were friendly. This was the perfect vacation. The excellent customer service at Kinbe made the experience more enjoyable. The staff spoke English, but they would let you practice Spanish with them. Thank you Carlos! We look forward to next year.

If you want a convenient location to all Playa has to offer this is a great hotel. It's just between the beach/ Zenzi beach club and 5th Avenue. I read a lot of reviews on this hotel before we booked. There isn't an elevator and we stayed on the 3rd floor in room 24. Steps aren't a problem for us... More

Had the Terrace Garden Suite. Nice room but a couple of draw backs. No elevator so luggage can be a pain to get to the second floor up and the shower floor with stones is neat to look at but a bit difficult on the feet.

The bathroom was moldy and not very well maintained. when we where there the room was moist all the time, maybe because it was raining almost every day or because our... More

We paid for 6 days at a Horrible hotel next door (Maya Bric Hotel... Do NOT EVER STAY THERE) and had to move over to this sanctuary!!! Was worth paying for... More

This is pretty nice boutique hotel, however our experience didn't really provide value for money. We are normally low-budget travellers, but recently we got married and haven't had a honeymoon yet. We decided to splurge a little for a nice hotel for our first two nights in Mexico before working life starts again. Unfortunately we were disappointed. For the price... More
