“Great hotel for the price and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2010

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in February of 2010 - we had a change in our travel plans and needed to find a place to stay in a hurry and got a really great price at the Hotel Kinich. It is a relatively new place on the island and was recommended to us by our friends' hotel owners. The pros: great location (close enough to the action but on a side street); great balcony that looks over Juarez (a great place to enjoy evening cocktails and morning coffee); the bathroom - lots of counter space - nice, new shower with good (for Isla) water pressure; the bed was pretty comfortable and the bedding pretty soft; mini-fridge; good closet space; very clean. The cons: the hallway is made of marble, which makes it very loud - you can hear all of your neighbors' comings and goings; there was an unusual smell - not terrible, but not great - but very present.

Also,this hotel is right around the corner from Om, a reggae bar that has live music often, and you can hear the music quite well from the rooms. We enjoyed the music and didn't find that it was a con - but if people are light sleepers (or don't enjoy reggae), they may not like this hotel. I think that there are rooms in the back of the hotel that would probably be quieter.

Overall, we liked this hotel - it was a great pick for spending a few extra nights on the island, and it couldn't be beat for the price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2010

We have stayed on Isla Mujares for five years for a month each time. This year we had to move from our regular hotel because of mold and a friend of ours, Felipe, the owner of Sunset Grill suggested Hotel Kinich to us. The owner was a friend of his. We looked at the rooms and immediately moved there. The maids are wonderful and the rooms are so restful, including the private patio. My brother and his wife moved there with us right next door. We had wonderful clean linens on our bed every other day which is so great and never happened before. Thanks to the wonderful staff and owners of the Hotel we had a wonderful vacation there. I tried to do a recommendation earlier in the year but it was not listed yet as it was still new but I did tell trip advisor about it. I am so glad it is mentioned now.

We decided to spend the evening in Isla Mujeres and were looking for a place to stay. From the outside it doesn't look that impressive, but the inside is totally impressive. The secluded patio was a wonderful place to rest and relax and the room was very modern. I would highly recommend this hotel!
