“Very cute guest house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This guest house is great ! The rooms have a good size and are clean. The decoration of the place is amazing. If you want to relaxe, there is a nice patio with 2 hammocks and sofas.
Puerto Morelos is very cute and typical. Less than one hour to go to Cancun, with amazing beaches.
I definitely recommend this place.

We stayed in beautiful puerto morelos for ten days , all the whole at Casitas Kinsol , and loved it! The place is great, so tropical you really feel like you're up in a treehouse! We had a room with a kitchenette which was perfect and we cooked almost every meal. The rooms where cleaned daily, and cleaned very thoroughly too! Alain and Christine were very warm and friendly and offered some great tips on what to see and do while in the area. Their dogs where all amazing, we wanted to take them home!! Definitely give it a try of you stay in Puerto Morelos. It's a short ride to the beach but we preferred being back a bit as its more authentic. Loved it!

We had a couple of relaxing nights to hang out in Puerto Morelos after a week in Mexico City. The room was perfect- like a giant tree house with a comfy bed and even a little porch overlooking the street. Comfy, welcoming and relaxing; just what we needed.

Room Tip: Not the best water pressure in the shower, but the beautiful Mexican tiles made up for it.

My mom and I stayed at Casita Kinsol for a total of 8 days. We booked one of the rooms with a small kitchen so we could save a little dough and make a few meals at home.

When we first arrived at the front gate we were a little worried, not sure what to expect. Yet, as soon as we walked into the colorful and welcoming front garden we were enchanted. Alain gave us a tour, showing us everything from the relaxation area and community fridge to the lime and guava trees the dot the property.

Our room was unique, clean and welcoming. We can a swing and a hammock in the corner and three beds to accommodate a larger group. At first we worried that nothing having A/C would be annoying, but the shade of the trees and the fresh squeezed juice from around the corner kept us cool and refreshed.

Over all we had a wonderful time, hanging out at the casita, going to the beach, and talking with the staff and other guests. What a wonderful adventure!! Thank you so much.

We stayed at Casitas Kinsol for the first three nights after arriving to Mexico. It is a wonderful place where you will feel comfortable and "at home" straight away. In addition Alain was a very helpful, easy going and helpful guy. Even though the hostel is located in the village "Puerto Morelos", it is easy to get to the beach as collectivos between the village and the beach run regularly and will take you there for only MXN 5. If we go to the Yucatan peninsula again, we will definitely visit this place again! Highly recommended.

Everything from the colors, the flower arrangements, the lighting and candles come together to create a truly wonderful rustic-Mexican style experience. Alan is a wonderful kind host who's willing to share many helpful tips which allow you to experience Puerto Morelos and its surroundings to the fullest.
