I really don’t understand how this hotel has 4 stars. After spending one night here, we moved to a different hotel. We had specifically asked for a room on the first floor and paid extra for a larger room, however the room we waited three hours for was dirty and in very poor condition. The light fixtures were broken, the... More

Hotel Kinbe is in an exceptional postions, quiet yet a matter of steps to the beach or the main shopping drag. The hotel is funky and modern, and has a real boutique feeling to it. The aircon is amazing and ice cold. The staff are so helpful. The roof top is an awesome spot to take some beers and chill... More

Nice clean rooms with balcony. Close to the beach (100 m). Close to 5th street (main street). Nice to be able to borrow new beachtowels every day to bring to the beach. Very helpful staff at the reception. Very cosy atmossphere.

The rooms were nice, all the staff was great. Very enjoyable. One would have to knit pick pretty hard to find anything wrong here. The stair way was pretty skinny? The location was great, super close to the beach and the main drag.

Very well located in the heart of Playa, 50 meters from the Quinta Avenida, the beach and nearby all the clubs. However, not too noisy (maybe depending of the room you get). The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Clean room. Was a great experience, thank you very much!

Kinbe hotel is in the middle of the main pedestrian street in Playa Del carmen. It is intermixed with vegetation and couple of small buildings that make up the hotel. The wifi in the hotel is weak, because all the wifi routers are in the room behind the front desk. There is no kitchen or room service. The bathroom is... More

I booked one night at booking.com and even that it says that I can pay at the hotel they charge the room automatically to my credit card. When I arrived there trying to cancel the reservation they didn't allow me to do it. The room was too small even for one person.

Stayed here while in town for Michael Gannon's Mysore Club at Yogaloft with my husband. The room is lovely, plenty of sunshine or just slide the blackout shades if you so desire. The room is small but you don't need much when the beach is just a skip down the road. The bed is in the loft with small lamps... More

Dear Jenny b Thanks for your comments, we’re glad you liked the loft, and that you found it roomy and sunny. The tropical storm we experienced those days had swollen the wooden frame of the door you mention, and the amount of water leaking was due to this and the severity of the storm that day. But it's fixed now,... More
