5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2008

We loved this hotel. Small, secluded and private. Felt like we had the beach to ourselves. Great restaurant, next door on the beach. Close to Playa del Carmen in car or taxi. Would highly recomend for romantic getaway. Not for those looking for a lot of entertainment or excitement provided by the hotel. You have to provide your own.

We stayed at Kai Kaana as a last minute (more like second) option. Yes, the hotel is very basic and lacks any form of luxury what-so-ever, but I guess you get what you pay for. Our first room didnt have a sea view but was changed the minutes we requested another. The room was clean when we arrived but were... More

Off of Highway 307 heading north you will see a small sign that points to Kai-Kaana Hotel, or Xcalacoco (which is the name of the area, rather than a specific place) We kept looking for a sign that read Punta Bete, but didn't see one so missed the turn off. The entire area is rather interesting as the drive down... More

We stayed at the hotel on the recommendation of our travel agent, she assured us it was small and secluded and clean. Yes it was small and secluded. Clean, well no. We were there from Feb 5-12, 2004. The hotel has a nice look to it, but there were only three people working there and only one spoke any English.... More

We stayed here from December 27-30, 2003. It is located on the beach at Punta Bete, about 8 kilometers north of Playa Del Carmen. The location is fine if you are looking for something low-key and away from the throngs of Playa visitors. The hotel and grounds are fairly attractive, with a decent pool. Unfortunately, the service was poor both... More
