This is a funky- cool place, but I do not know how anyone sleeps here. It's like sleeping in a cabin, which is a cool idea, until the mosquitoes come and eat you alive!! We stayed in "the most popular casita" which is really cool looking with a loft. But the old, falling apart, stairs made it very difficult to... More

Sadly Kinsol was our final stay for our trip so we only stayed one night. It was a great last night, despite a small snafu. The hosts were super helpful and had great suggestions for food and activities. The power went off at midnight and they responded right away and worked for an hour to get it up and running.... More

Alain was so helpful that he stood out as the best host we had for 3 weeks. Before arriving he gave us useful advice to avoid getting taken advantage at the airport - every word he said happened and we were able to handle the situation like a local instead of tourist. He gave us countless good advice on travel... More

I was impressed with the quality of this hostel for the price I paid. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet Natural Environment. Location was excellent and walkable distance to the Bus station and Beach!. Staff was friendly and helpful with giving us a map, directions, and opinions of places to go. I would definitely stay here again.

After a lost passport moved my flights out to a very busy week I had to rejigger the trip and glad it included this home. I arrived to Christine and her 3 dogs with a very encouraging welcome. Alain called a taxi, I went to town hung out in the beach and enjoyed my last night of fresh ceviche. Nice... More

There were so many problems with the stay it was hard to find anything good. To start the night off there was a horrible smell of smoke. When my sister tried to plug in the fan to help disperse the smell it was a shocking experience.. Literally. Sparks flew out of the plug-in. When we had a closer look we... More

Lovely stay. You can rent rooms with kitchenette which proved to be wonderful considering there is amazing fruits and veggies to be found just down the street. Nice, rustic and relaxing. We will be back!

I'm so glad I chose to stay at this place. Myself and my daughter can't stand the typical tourist trap places, jammed with vendors and hagglers, very common in the Riviera Maya. Casitas Kinsol is located in the Puerto Morelos town itself, where real mexicans live. The whole place has a wonderful, primitive feel to it and it is extremely... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casitas Kinsol is a Guest House with 8 rooms for rent in Puerto Morelos, on the Mayan Riviera, 25 minutes South of the airport international of Cancun and 4 blocks from the main bus stop in town. It resides in the heart of the “Colonia” of Puerto Morelos conveniently located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen and only 2 miles to the beach. Surrounded by many eateries, grocery stands and stores, it offers 8 romantic rooms and bungalows: 4 with kitchenettes and 4 without. All the rooms have basic amenities at low prices for double occupancy. The rooms come with private baths, hot showers, air fans and a unique décor designed by the owners. Most of them come with WI-FI. Room #1:The Master Room is (as well as the room 8) an authentic Mayan hut where Mayan people used to leave until the early 1990's. It has been converted to a large room with its private bathroom. The thatched roof was replaced by a stucco one with two skylights. Two small windows were added to bring some more light to the room. It has cement floor and tiles in the large bathroom. It is a very large standalone, ground floor, hut style bungalow, complete with a full-size (double) bed and one twin-size (single) bed, so it will accommodate 3 persons. Private bathroom and kitchenette. It offers a refrigerator and two burner stove-top but no ovens or microwave. No microwave or standard ovens, no dishwasher either.
