Hotel Villas Kin-Ha
Ranked #18 of 34 Hotels in Palenque
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

This place was made to cater for the large number of tourists visiting Palenque pyramids. The hotel is resort style with a large pool. Nothing around the hotel except other hotels, farmland and bush.

The room we stayed in was a hut. Sparsely furnished and dark. Bathroom was horrible because of the dangerous drop in levels and sharp tiles. Mosquitos in room. Saving grace was the air conditioner. Wifi only available in the reception area. Cable TV reception not too good and remote control did not work.

Dinner buffet was standard Mexican food. Breakfast buffet was limited selection.

Reception staff were friendly and spoke English.

The draw card is Palenque and that only takes a day to see it. I would not want to stay longer than one night at Kin Ha.

Stayed here for one night on Exodus's La Ruta Maya tour. The setting and the villas look nice around the pool but the rooms and bathrooms were very basic - a bit like a 1950's holiday camp. The margaritas were good and the food was okay but the hotel was almost empty, just one group of French tourists besides us. We played cards in the restaurant after dinner (for lack of anything else to do) and the staff were clearly waiting around for us to leave.

A very good week spent at Kin-Ha. The attention from the management made us feel at home and its proximity to Palenque archaeological site a very good option. Good food and the karaoke bar was a nice experience!

On the site of this hotel there are many villa´s, that look great from the outside, but when you´re in your room, it is very humid. Some places became mouldy, especially the bathroom. It didn´t smell fresh. There was a fantastic pool, with a nice terrace. You can drink your cocktail here. Breakfast was a la carte, there was not a buffet. Great advantage of the hotel is that it is near the ruins of Palenque.

This hotel is frequented by large tour groups. We basically just slept there and didn't taste their food nor took advantage of their pool. The hotel shows its age, the room was clean, okay, but nothing special. The price was alright (1,100 MXN) for three people. WIFI only worked in the lobby, but not in the room.

The location so close to the ruins is nice, but without a car you are stuck there.

I would probably stay in another place next time.

We loved the place, fantastic pool, very clean. The bed/mattress were the most comfortable one we have slept in on a trip. There were almost no guests there, so we had the fantastic pool to ourselves.
The water is only warm, it never gets hot, despite what the staff say. This was not a problem for us as it was quite hot outside.
I wouldrecommend the kin ha to anyone.

We telephoned this hotel to reserve a room, and were told we had a reservation and could pay on arrival. However when we arrived the people on reception denied all knowledge of the telephone call, and implied that we never made it. They seemed very busy, were not friendly at all, and told us to sit down while they found out if they had any free rooms. We waited two hours, while they ignored us. We were then told they did have a room but it was being cleaned, so we ate lunch at the restaurant - terrible and overpriced food. When we were taken to the room we couldn't believe it. The grounds are lovely, but these rooms were tucked behind what looked like the staff quarters. It was dingy, very basic and the beds were extemely soft; you could feel the springs through the mattress. Perhaps if the room was very cheap you could overlook these things but the price, in comparison to elsewhere, was very expensive! We asked for our money back and, after being told by the staff that we wouldn't find anywhere else to stay in the whole of Palenque, got a taxi to town and found a much cheaper and nicer room in another hotel. Avoid this place.
