This is a charming hotel, decoration-wise - but has issues. it is extremely noisy - same problem with all the other hotels close to Avenida 5, because there are a lot of bars and clubs there that put loud electronic music. If you sleep at night and are not going to the clubs, avoid any hotel close to Avenida 5... More

Very disappointed in the KINBE Hotel. My trip coincided with a music festival and a club 1/2 block away played loud ear - piercing house music until 6:00 in the morning. Was not told when booking the hotel that the festival was in town. Also, which turned out to be a blessing, reservations made a mistake and gave away my... More

Great location on Calle 10 and about 20 m from the beach. 5th Avenue is about 10m from hotel and everything is available there- food, alcohol, souvenirs, massage, tour offices etc. This hotel is really lovely. The ADO bus terminal is about 5-6 blocks away so easily within walking distance, as is everything else. I enjoyed my stay- I had... More

The location of this hotel is key. It’s close to the beach, restaurants, and 5th avenue. I wouldn’t say Playa del Carmen is authentic Mexico any more. It’s become a hotspot for tourists, so there are nightclubs and gobs of huge shopping. It’s commercialized. So if you want peace and quiet, lazy days on the beach, and serenity, do not... More

I stayed there for 3 nights. The german girl at the front desk was rude and cold. It was obvious that I was annoying her by checking in and her behaviour did not change over the three days I stayed there. I had issues with an overflowing shower due to a clogged shower drain as well as bugs. When I... More

Great location, contemporary hotel by Mexico standards Very clean But The best aspect is the staff Carlos & Anna were exemplary & service/friendliness beyond the regular line of duty Also, has a great link to the excellent Beach Bar Senzei ... Where another Carlos stepped to the plate in service too No hesitation to go back there Haydn

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
