Good value. Big apartment, balcony with nice view of the trees in the backyard. The included breakfast was above our expectations, as was everything else in this hotel. We will stay here again. We recommend this hotel if you come by car. It is not central.

Nice, quiet hotel with very kind, service minded and helpful staff speaking excellent English. Taxi takes you to Tulum center in minutes for 40-50 pesos and about 100 pesos to the beach. The hotel is clean and built in a familiar Mexican style. Beautiful surroundings with lots of flowers and plants in the hotel area. We can recommend a stay...

Very welcoming; rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the hammock and sitting on the shaded porch. Breakfast is tasty and freshly prepared. Staff are friendly and helpful. We walked from the bus station. Directions are easy to follow and it is about a 15 - 20 minute walk. Posada Yum Kin is off the main drag and quiet...

We stayed here for a week visiting Tulum and surrounding areas. We had a Junior Suite that was quite sufficient for 2 of us. It is on the second floor up a spiral staircase so if that would be a problem, you should ask for a first floor room. Our room had a double bed, a convenient kitchenette that included...

Friendly staff, nice room, good breakfast, far from restaurants. Located across from informal settlement. Very nice courtyard and greenary. Convenient to beach with car. I would recommend as it is a good value for the price. Recommend having your own transport.

We had a wonderful stay at Posada Yum Kin. The hotel is quiet and friendly in its authentic decoration. We got the feeling of being in Mexico. The staff is extremely friendly and helped us solve problems related to the rented car and other things. The hotel is situated a couple of kilometres away from down town Tulum, which means...

Wonderful natural decor and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We actually ended up being the only people in the hotel when we stayed for 8 nights at the end of October 2016. Breakfast was delicious by the pool and the our room was large and clean and included a water dispenser, balcony overlooking the natural decor in the...

Spent 10 nights at PYK with family over Christmas 2016, and had a wonderful time. Rooms were very comfortable, spacious and impeccably clean. We loved the peace and quiet - it is a real oasis. We also had a few special requests, which were all accommodated in a very friendly and gracious fashion. We couldn't have asked for a better...

I visit Tulum fairly often and have tried a number of smaller, more moderately-priced hotels in town. Posada Yum Kin is a wonderful place, very helpful and friendly staff, and a beautiful authentic-feeling Mexican hostel. My room was basic but clean and tidy, everything worked as I expected, hot water, Wi-Fi, AC, and kitchen was well-stocked to do light cooking,...

Arriving nearby the hotel we started to wonder if we didn't get lost as the neighborhood doesn't look really nice and it seems many poor people are living in the area across the street. However, as soon as the woman from the hotel opened the door we started to feel better. The woman who welcomed us was really nice and...
