The place was very beautifull and the room was a simple suite which contained 2 double beds a kitchen and a dinning table. There was a free wifi in the room and a free buffet breakfast next to the pool.
The beds were simple wooden beds, which on first site looked breakable but they were quite comfortable. We liked that they arrange the towels as swans on the bed.
The service however was not that good. The reception was empty most of the day and even on the hours that they were saying that the reception is open there was no one there.
The breakfast was quite nice except of the fact that flies were entering the buffet plates all the time.
The place was located 10 minutes walk from the main street. The walk was ok during the day but when it became dark the way became unpleasant, taxi cost us around 30 pesos. The ruins were located 10 minutes ride and the taxi cost 50-80 pesos.

Another problem we had caused since we forgot something in the hotel when we left. We called the hotel and asked them to send it to us using an express car on our expense, they told us they will check it out and will call us back. After few hours with no returning call we tried to call them back several times but they just disappeared.

We just returned from our trip to Mexico and we stayed 3 nights at PYK. It was a lovely stay. They staff and fellow guests were extremly friendly and helpful. It is definitely a quiet, relaxing hotel so I wasn't sure if my children would be disruptive or not. They were the only children in the hotel and everyone was very nice to them. My son had a great time looking for, and trying to catch, the little lizards. Breakfast was great. Something for everyone. If you want beauty and relaxation, this is your place. If you want tv, night life, constant entertainment...maybe not. For me, it was great.

I spent the month of January there again this year and it's better than ever. Balbv and Dan have added some wonderful rooms and amenities to Yum Kin too. Ricado, the young manager, is a delightful and catering person. And, the staff of the tres hermanos ( Mieza, Merna and Manuel) are the best ever!!! If you are looking for the best in Tulum, you gotta stay there. I'm going back for the month of enero '14, so don't take my room!!!

Only one word describe this place. Excellent !!!l Great staff members, they speak English and Spanish. The staff is very friendly. The Hotel is a short walk to downtown. The Hotel is also eco friendly. I've stay in many Hotels around the world, but never seen a cleaner swimming pool. The pool is awesome. The food is great, especially breakfast. The price to stay there is great comparing to other places in town, they offer a lot more. I can't wait for my next vacation there.

We have just stayed for two weeks and really loved it. Ricardo and the team are very friendly and helpful. The grounds and rooms are kept immaculately clean, i;m sure the pool was cleaned every other day.

The fact it is out of town we found a bonus and you are removed from any bustle and yet it is in easy reach and the taxi system is so regular and reasonable it doesn't take long to get to the beach.

I hope that the hotel doesn't grow too much by adding too many more rooms as it will loose it charm and breakfast in the small pool area may become a challenge.

Very relaxing and peaceful place to vacation. The staff is very nice and friendly. Great location, too, as downtown is only a short (10-15 minute) walk away. The rooms are clean and nice -- and quite spacious. The pools is very nice (and also spacious) and offers the perfect place to start your day (with poolside breakfast) or end your day with an evening swim.
