“BEST BEACH IN CANCUN”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

This was our 21st year. This is a fantastic place and the people here make you feel like we are part of their family. The beach is the best in Cancun and the sand is soft and white and never gets hot.
We saw changes from last year. Some new people at the front desk and new waiters and chef in the restaurant.
We still have Fidel in the bar and he makes great margaritas also home made sangrita and is still the best bartender.
Jorge Dominquez is still the General Manager and doing a very good job.

We arrived on January 28th and left April 3rd and we have confirmed reservations for over 2 months for next year

We submit a review each year and encourage people who have not stayed there before to e mail us at blgloss@nvc.net
This is not a large hotel where people have to fight for recliners around the pool and beach. It is very laid back and great for people who like a large beach and no stress. It is especially good for families with young children as beach has no large waves or undertow and a lifeguard on duty.

We recommend the one bedroom suite facing the ocean. This is sligtly more expensive but well worth it as it has an awesome view. This has a large kitchen with all appliances and should you need something just call the front desk and the convenience store on the grounds sells 20 litres of bottled water for only 42 pesos and ask the front desk for a dispenser. The rooms are kept clean and the maid comes everyday. We enjoy eating breakfast on our balcony or in the restaurant.

Beach towels are available near the pool and if you get them sandy just trade them in for clean ones.The pool is well maintained with a shallow area for small children. There is also a gated area near the pool for children that has a jungle jim and other things for them to play with. Toys for the children are available at the booth that dispenses towels and you may have to sign for them. There are pails and shovels and squirt guns and flotation devices - toys too numerous to mention.

We like to tip the maids daily and leave a substancial tip when we leave to show appreciation.

The hotel is right on the bus route and one comes by every few minutes. 2 and 15 go to Market 28 and Wal-Mart and #1 goes downtown to Tulume Ave and goes north towards the bus station. All for 9.5 pesos.
The new front desk manager is Oscar and many other good people like Lorenzo,Jennifer, Melanie and Caroline just to name a few. The bellmans are Isasc and William, Israel.
For reservations, ask for Paula and the toll free number from the US is 1-866-340-9082 and if she isnt available ask for the General Manager Jorge Dominquez and tell him I referred you.

They have laundry facilities on the grounds - just go to the front desk for the tokens for the washer and dryer.
The supermarket across the street and over 2 blocks to he right is still the best place to go for beer and pop, bread and lots of other things and the pizza place down the same block has the best pizza in Cancun.

The groundskeepers keep everything trimmed and looking great and should you want a coconut just ask one of them to get one for you and cut the top off. Tip him

Should you have any questions at all be sure and email us at blgloss@nvc.net

Room Tip: The 4000 and 5000 buildings have elevators so do not be afraid to get a room on the 4th floor.

Depending on what you are looking for.. The Kin Ha is definitely a great place to stay all-around... The room/condos are awesome ..especially if your stay is a week or so... The cleaning team does an excellent job, the staff all around is awesome.. They have an awesome in-house convenience store that basically has everything you would need and at a very decent price.. which was helpful due to the closest stores being more then a quick walk.. The pool is very nice..nothing too special.. and then the Beach is perfect.. awesome sand, great location.. you can do anything from Jetski to Water Jet packing ... It's a quick walk to some of the other popular hotels in the area.. and the beach front restaurant is really cool with great drinks and great food.. Definitely completely enjoyed my stay, and would recommend it to anyone.

Just spent the last 4 weeks in our favorite one bedroom Suite with a great beach view. The resort is older but is kept very clean and all the workers are very friendly, but not all speak English! Fidel the bar tender makes a very good Margarita as well home made Sangrita that goes great with our Tequila shots when sipped as a chaser! The Beach is one of the best beaches in all of Mexico! Also the Ocean is very protected from high winds and have never seen any Large waves that would make it to rough to swim in! This was our 7th or 8th year staying at this Resort and we would highly recommend it. It's quiet and a little smaller than most resorts and that is one of the reasons we like it so much. We will be going back next spring for another 4 week stay as we have already made the arrangements for our favorite suite! Great value, great beach, great location for shopping, friendly staff!

Room Tip: Pool or Ocean view are the prettiest, but more expensive!

This was our 4th stay here, for 3 weeks this year. The property was among the very first to be built on the Cancun hotel zone back in the 70s and is somewhat dated. The individual units are owned by private parties, some Mexican and some of other nationalities, and are managed by the hotel company. The owners determine what improvements are to be done in their units and so some may not have the finest & latest furnishings but the rooms are kept clean. Areas that should be addressed are the 40-year-old cheap plastic shower doors, toilets that flush poorly (mainly because management has set the tanks to fill only half-way to save on water), kitchen cabinetry and Internet WiFi and TV. The WiFi is spasmodic and sketchy. You get good reception one day and bad the next. TV channels in English number just a few and TV cable service pixels out frequently, sometimes for days on end. No excuse for this in the 21st Century.

We noticed many more Eastern Europeans here this trip. It seems management works with some charter travel groups from Europe to bring in more business. Most were fine to be around but some were loud, so be ready to hear a lot of Russian being spoken around you if you stay here. These tour groups come in as all-inclusive and are told tips are included and so they work the bar and wait staff pretty hard but members of the staff told us they never are paid any tips from those charter arrangements plus the individuals never tip either which is just not right in our opinion.

Also we would suggest management supply rooms with a guest services booklet, like just about every other hotel in the world does, to inform guests about things available at the hotel, spa services, things nearby, bus and taxi information and the like. Even after 4 times here we never knew that we could get a large jug of water with dispenser in our room or that bags of ice are available for 25 pesos in the gift shop or that you can get token for the on-site laundry at the front desk.

The landscaping is kept perfectly, the pool is clean and hardly ever crowded and the beach is among the best anywhere which keeps many people coming back here.

The maids insist on changing bed sheets daily which we think is a waste. In fact we opted to have the room cleaned every other day. Management should consider informing guests that they can choose to not have their sheets changed every day, so as to save the hotel on laundering costs.

Not a new one, but in good condition. The beach is beautiful, but sea is very shallow (but this is the same for whole Cancun). Price / quality - all hotels are overpriced in Cancun. 130 USD per day it is too much for this hotel (with no food included!!!!).

Room Tip: According to the location a building 5 is the best.

I've lost count how many times we have been to Beachscape. I think this was #5? The incredible beach and quiet atmosphere is what keeps us coming back. We always get a 1 bedroom suite with an ocean view. We had an AMAZING room on the 4th floor this time! No elevators, so know that.

I found a super good deal on an all-inclusive 1 bedroom, ocean view for 2 people, so we figured we'd give it a shot. Normally, we just do breakfast included and then run a tab for drinks and lunches on the beach. The breakfast was good as usual. We also still loved having drinks and lunch on the beach each day. Miguel was awesome and took great care of us! We had dinner a couple times on site, but we were disappointed that steak and seafood were not included in the all inclusive plan. Full price for those meals needs to be paid if you want them (instead of just an upgrade price), so we decided if we were going to pay full price for a meal, we'd go elsewhere and get better food. The food was fine for lunch, but disappointing for supper.

In the past, we have never had a problem getting a spot on the beach under a palapa no matter what time we arrived. We have always loved that there was always a spot and the 'towel game' was never played there. This was not the case on this trip. We got to the beach one morning at 8:30 and there were no spots left! Chairs were reserved with a shoe or a towel and we were totally bummed. Instead, we sat by the pool for a bit, then eventually we were able to move back to the beach. So our last couple days, we played the towel game too. We put our towels out at about 8, had breakfast, then went to the beach for the day. We didn't feel bad about this. It's the folks that put their towels out in the morning, but don't use the chairs until the afternoon that are so ridiculously frustrating! But the beach was still amazing and beautiful and we love it!

One of the days I had a very nice massage on the beach. I paid for 35 minutes, but I know she went longer! It was beautiful!

The staff is still very friendly. The hotel is immaculate (old, yes. but very clean!), the vibe is relaxed and quiet, and the beach cannot be beat. All of these will most likely bring us back.

Room Tip: ocean view for sure!

Beachscape has changed . It is now mostly an All Inclusive with large loud groups. These appear to be low budget travelers, who trash the beach and rooms. Many loyal customers are not returning. This is sad, as it used to be a friendly, quiet place to relax.
