Enrique and Carlos were suberb in making sure my room was set, and arranged my tours. PERFECT location! Its exactly a half block from the beach. Your given a pass for free lounge chairs and covered shade from the sun.... More

Just off the main street so close to all the bars and restaurants. You get free loungers & towels at the beach club too. Beach is lovely, not too crowded. Some rooms are a bit noisy (we moved from room 14 as we couldn't sleep even with earplugs!). Easy walk to the ADO bus station and Cozumel ferry.

We stayed for a week at Kinbé. Perfect location, close to the beach and to the 5th and the 10th Avenue in Playa, where most of the restaurants and commerce are. We were welcomed by a very friendly staff, helpful and with lots of tips to give. We stayed in a room to their inner yard, so it was very... More

The hotel was in a good location for bars, restaurants and the beach. Overall it was a reasonable hotel, it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. On the downside the rooms were quite small and as we were on the bottom floor it was also quite dingy. If you are only going to stay here for a... More

I stayed in here with my family for a week. The location is great. We were looking for a place where we could have the option to enjoy our vacation without renting a car.

Kinbé Hotel was just WHAT we were looking for. The tropical jungle-themed scenery immediately welcomes you to a different world: a world where time stops. Trees and plants have reclaimed their crown over concrete. No beds but hammocks on the room patios. All this within the heart of 5av and within a three minute walk to the beach. The staff... More

Good hotel for price, great location. However, not sure if it's because we had a ground floor room, but it smelled like an old basement as soon as you walked in. Extremely humid! Also, you're between the management office and maintenance/cleaning equipment room, not very private. Would have asked for another room if I was staying longer than 1 night... More
