We originally had reserved for 3 nights, but an arrangement to stay with a Mexican family fell through and Posada Yum Kin gracefully helped us stay for 2 more weeks here. We had to move our room twice, but the staff helped us do so and it really was not a big issue. The hotel is in a neighborhood, not... More

We only stayed one night in June 2014 and we did not use the kitchen facilities in the room (which looked well stocked). The room was spacious, nicely decorated with a comfortable bed, both fans and air conditioning, and a good shower. To get to our room, we walked up a spiral staircase (not small, but some people might prefer... More

We stayed the first week in October for 4 days. The place was really cool, far enough away from the busy downtown area but still close enough to bike to it to eat lunch/dinner. We were in town looking at properties for a second home so only ate breakfast once on site. Second floor room up a tree stair case,... More

Unfortunately we stayed only two nights in the Posada Yum Kin. Although we arrived really late at night we were welcomed friendly by a Spanish speaking guy who showed us our room. Until the next day we saw the nice garden and enjoyed the freshly cooked breakfast. The staff was very friendly, the room was quite large and equipped with... More

Ok so to begin, we knew this place was going to be legit, the only thing we were skeptical about was that it was not going to be on the beach…. but honestly that didn't matter AT ALL. This place took my breath away, absolutely gorgeous decor you literally feel like you live in a jungle, no bugs in your... More

This is the perfect home base for exploring Tulum and day adventures. Our family of 4 (girls 10/12) stayed here for two nights in order to do some exploring day trips. We love the beach but knew that we would not be at the hotel during the day so this was absolutely perfect. We had a HUGE room at the... More

Excellent complimentary breakfast, air conditioning, beautiful rooms, excellent value compared to beach side resorts which skimp on these amenities. We went out daily well rested and full on a great breakfast to see Cenotes, Chichen Itza, the beach, and golf courses.
