PYK is a diamond in the rough. My husband and I stayed at PYK for 5 wonderful days. The Pros: Beautiful structure, comfortable, large, clean rooms with refrigerators, a gas stove, A/C, blender and coffee maker. The staff is what made our stay amazing. Friendly, accommodating and did everything to make our stay enjoyable.Claudia and Velvina gave us wonderful recommendations... 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. This hotel is a diamond in the rough.The owner was very warm, direct, and helpful. Rooms are well kept... More

PYK is a gem. My girlfriend and I were nervous that the hotel wasn't the typical all-inclusive Mexico resort, but we were blown away by the value we got from our stay. The rooms were clean and well-decorated, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was a nice touch. We rented a car so we had no problem getting around,... More

We spent an entire week with our family (3 boys) and had such a memorable time. Liz and Claudia took really took good care of us, giving us lots of suggestions for beach day outings and restaurants. We felt really at home away from home. For our booking, Liz suggested room 12 which is right in front of the swimming... More

Fairly basic but very comfortable room. I was impressed by the attention to detail (such as a 20-litre office-style water dispenser in the room and bug screens on the doors as well as the windows) which other, fancier, accommodation on our trip was lacking. The pool is relatively large and pleasantly shaded in the afternoon. Breakfast is also quite basic... More

Never in my life I thought I could stay in a hotel that makes you feel at home, so far from home. If you are looking for a quiet place with extra large air conditioned rooms with huge kitchen and a private pool, you should definitely stay here!!! Me and my family stayed here for 3 unforgettable nights. We stayed... More

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...
