We stayed three nights at Posada Yum Kin and enjoyed it immensely. The rooms were clean and spacious and the pool was an extra bonus that we didn't know about when we booked. They also included an unlimited supply of drinking water and had cooking facilities in the room. Rooms are accessed via a courtyard with a gate, so the... More

It does have a tranquil feel as you walk in. It is a very quiet place. Unfortunately the location is what lets it down. We caught a taxi from Playa and on arrival in Tulum despite having the address it took many conversations from the taxi driver to locals before we could finally find it. Upsides: - Nice rooms with...

The reviews were filled with warmth and enthusiasm, so we booked Yum Kin for 3 days. Great move! It has a cozy, quirky atmosphere, clearly had a lot of thought put into layout, decor and style, and provides great base. Our room (#1) even had small kitchen which gives greater flexibility. Lis, the manager, was a star throughout, settling us... More

We spent 11 days my family and I (2 children 2 & 5) in the Posada Yum Kin, finding a more perfect place (we had a car) than this charming Boutique Hotel would not have being possible. Lis, the hotel manager is a perfect mixing of friendliness and efficiency. We will be back...

We followed the recommendations in Trip Advisor and stayed here for a couple if days while exploring Tulum. Better than we had hoped! Friendly and informed staff that were a joy to meet. We explored the busy beach scene and checked out the highly rated restaurants (see Hartwood review) but stayed away from the crowd and relaxed in their great... More

Immaculately clean and superbly maintained! The staff (especially Liz) is beyond friendly and the hotel is kind of like living in a private compound/tree house. We stayed in Suite 7 which is almost bigger than our apartment in DC. The suite has a full kitchen, closet, two queen beds, large walk in shower, and most importantly for me, A/C. The... More

I spent nine days at PYK during a recent visit that was mostly business, but--as all visits to Tulum are--also pleasure and relaxation. The staff was always eager to please, and the entire place was kept immaculately clean. Being a landscape designer and contractor myself, I always take note of the use of plant material and other spaces outdoors. PYK... More

This was one of three different hotels that my husband and I stayed in while in Tulum, and this was by far our favorite! Tucked away in a little corner of Tulum, a few blocks from the city center, the place felt like our own private sanctuary! The staff was extremely friendly and the attention to detail (right down to... More

Just got back from a week at this wonderful place. Liz, the manager, pulled some local strings to save my butt. This hotel is very clean and has some wonderful rooms. AC was great. Short walk to downtown.

Just got back from a wonderful 11 nights at the Posada Yum Kin, well it should have been just 6 nights so you need to read on! Thanks to Liz and her team for making our stay an absolute delight. The Posada is an architectural gem oozing with Mexican culture and a wonder to explore. Exotic planting around and within... More
