We recently stayed here for 3 days (August 2016) and this hotel really exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a larger room and the hotel is a one minute walk to one of the nicest sections of beach in Playa. Staff was always there to answer any questions we had and to give travel/activity tips. Room was... More

I booked a small room at the Kinbe, and it was seriously small. However, the room was kept spotlessly clean, with fresh towels and linens daily. The AC was excellent (remote controlled), as was the TV. The bed had a nice firm mattress, which was great for sleeping. The room had a small refrigerator with a "minibar" that was convenient...

This quaint hotel was a perfect fit for me. I was traveling solo and staying in Playa for 2 nights. I wanted somewhere close to the beach, safe/clean, and walking distance from night scene. I stayed in their king size room with access to the pool (I didn't use it, as I cared about the beach not the pool) on... More

It is not a fancy place, but perfect if you plan on spending your time out in Playa and need a comfy, clean place to get back to at night. And given the price - we couldn't have asked for more. My only suggestion is to add a hot water kettle in the rooms.

After staying in a party hostel nearby, this hotel was incredible. Room was clean and bright with modern design. Pool was great and the staff were super friendly and helpful!!! We only had one night left to stay here unfortunately, as I would have stayed for a week if I could!!

After a horrible experience at an all inclusive, the Kinbe was the remedy! Since we first arrived, staff treated us as if we had been beloved regulars. I did not expect the beautiful tropical environment within the hotel which was stunning and well maintained. There was no elevator as I found out from a previous review but poor Victor helped...

I have no complaints about the hotel facilities, except I would recommend taking a photo of the minibar for reference when settling the charges upon checkout. I think I was overcharged for my minibar purchases Just a general note about Playa Del Carmen- aways double check your bill, tourists are regularly ripped off and the math on your bill often...

I loved this place. It was very quiet and homely. There is a lovely pool and roof terrace. The rooms were clean and modern with a rustic touch to them. They upgraded us too so I was very pleased. I liked the gardens and the fact it was within walking distance of anywhere in Playa centre.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kinbe is a fusion of lush tropical garden setting with distinctly chic shape that gives a soaring charm in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Close to the 5 Avenida, just 50 meters from the Caribbean Sea. The impressive reception, the particular pool, the stunning waterfall and the panoramic terrace are the enchanting of the hotel. The unique shape design of the rooms offers the guests a feeling that each room was designed especially for them. ... more   less
