“Home from home”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The perfect position, close to the town but also far enough away to give a tranquil feel to it. The room and bed were very comfortable. The pool fantastic and with being a small hotel, we had it to ourselves most of the time. I have to say the breakfast became a little repetitious and an offer of eggs other than scrambled would be nice. All in all a highly recommended hotel and Riccardo a smiling and helpful host.

Don't judge the hotel by it's front - it doesn't look like much from the outside but when you step inside the door you're surprised by a beautiful, lush little garden. My friend an I stayed in a mini suite with a small kitchenette and a fridge. We didn't cook but the fridge was very useful. The hotel also provided fresh drinkingwater. The room was nice and clean (except from the floor) and we loved our little patio. Breakfast was very good and the restaurantarea overlook the pool. We can recommend renting a car to get around, if not the hotel has a couple of bikes to rent. Very good wifi that worked really well!

Beautiful little oasis in Tulum. Very clean, nicely furnished, beautiful Spanish style rooms. Garden area is gorgeous, lots of greenery, nice pool. When you first pull up outside it doesn't look too impressive, but once you're inside its great. Good breakfast too! If you're looking good a big hotel this is not for you, but if you want something away from e crowds you'll love it. Nice kitchen area with a small stove if you want to cook. We're definitely going back some day. Beach is a couple miles away, but they have bikes you can rent.

While this hotel is a bit of a walk from the centre of town, the trip is well worth it. The large, bright and comfortable room was equipped with a small kitchen area and a private balcony. Many hours were spent relaxing in the hammocks and swimming in the pool. Breakfast was delicious and the staff were very helpful.

I just had the best vacation experience ever in such a lovely place. The best hotel I could stay is Posada Yum Kin. the rooms have all the services, they're so spacious and beautiful. They provide water in each room which is great. The breakfast was delicious I just loved the pancakes!!! But one of the best things I coud notice was the excellent service. The manager Ricardo is an awsome person, he's so helpful, polite and kind. He always had such a big smile. He gave us sugestions to have the best staying in Tulum. I can't wait to go back to that fantastic hotel. Congratulations for the great personnel you have.

One would not expect such exceptional Posada to find off the beating track in Tulum town. Our room No. 8 was well situated on an upper floor, with ideal balcony setting, furnished with taste and comfort for short or longer stay (fully equipped kitchen). The manager's thrustworthy recommendations for anything in or around Tulum can only be commended. He also assists guests with their requests for the kitchen during the extensive breakfast. The car park, in front of the Posada, appears to be safe. We parked our car there with three doors unlocked during our stay. (Rented car did not have central lock and we did not read the cars handbook!)

Room Tip: Room No. 8, upper floor, balcony facing trees in courtyard.

I stayed at the Posada Yum Kin for 11 nights on the basis of the positive reviews already posted and could not have found a better place for what I wanted.

The owners have created a delightful sanctuary tucked out of the way of the main drag in Tulum town, somewhere that's a perfect place for anyone wanted to explore the area. I would recommend you get a car though to be really independent as it's a good 5/10 minutes into he centre of town and the beach is further away.

The furnishings and thoughtful way the whole place is styled is lovely, the pool is very pretty and importantly for me, the wifi worked really well. Ricardo, the manager, was great and always very welcoming and helpful.

My only constructive comments would be for breakfasts to start a little earlier, an 8:00am start for breakfast is quite late if you want to head out to anywhere before it gets too hot, but that's a really minor quibble. The fridge, or some piece of equipment in the room, was a little noisy... as were the neighbours sometimes, but a handy pair of ear-plugs soon fixed that and I slept like a baby.

All in all, thoroughly recommended. Would definitely stay there again. It's a gem.
