    Very friendly, helpful staff, did extra mile to help us out. Breakfast excellent, nice picturesque environment, comfortable, spacious rooms, quiet area. A bit removed from restaurants and town center. The Yucatan is hot and humid, hence air conditioning is a must-- the Posada was well equipped and comfortable. Those who stay along the beach where ecological standards don't permit air conditioning suffer through the night. Some of our group had that experience, but we were as comfortable as at home in the Posada. We were very happy with our choice.

    The location is a bit of a drawback if you don't have a vehicle to get to the restaurants; the area, of course, is very safe, so walking if you are up to it is not a problem.

    Posada Yum Kin gave us the mexican getaway experience we were looking for. A lot of love has been put into pyk and you notice it in all of the details, from the gardens to the individually designed rooms. All of the staff members are very kind and extraordinary people. This is definitely a place I would return to in the future!

    Posada Yum Kin is a lovely boutique hotel with charming tropical gardens, spacious, clean and attractive rooms, a tasty and nutritious free breakfast and a lovely pool. Its location, literally at the end of the road, is great for anyone who wants to be part of the real life world of Tulum. The hotel rents bicycles and it is fun and easy to get to the many surrounding tourist destinations including several beaches, "cenotes" or underground rivers, Mayan ruins and a lively downtown. PYK offered a friendly and comfortable home base and a chance to explore the many delights of Tulum.

    Good

    The rooms are designed around a tranquil garden setting. The rooms are a good size.

    The location is rather odd, as it is not in the town centre (about a 15 minute walk to the town), and not near or on the way to the beaches. The on site manager was quite rude and certainly not friendly. We had advised the hotel in advance that we were staying with them for our honeymoon, yet they placed us in a twin share room, so had two single beds. There is also rather limited privacy, as other guests and staff could easily see into our bathroom and main bedroom. Due to the design around the garden, the conversations of other guests in their rooms echoed everywhere and was rather unpeaceful given there were a few families with small children staying whom would cry frequently (which I generally don't have a problem with, unless its very loud and inescapable even in your villa due to the echoing!) The breakfast was also quite poor and unhygenic.

    Fabulous

    The place is absolutely beautiful! Very nice and relaxing decor. There's a swimming pool and a nice breakfast is included in the price. Quiet & peaceful. The staff were friendly and gracious, also helpful.

    The location is OK, but if you don't have a car, it's a bit far from the town & there is nothing immediately around the hotel to do, They DO rent bikes, however!

    Fabulous

    The staff were excellent, the fellow travellers were interesting, it was a good place to meet other mature travelers(30- 50 age). Another travelling pair visited all the other comparable hotels and commented this hotel as the best value for money.

    Fabulous

    The people were WONDRFUL both Verbina and Ricardo speak English and are VERY helpful. My room was large and comfortable with a kitchen--more than I needed for 2 days. Could have housed a family with small kids for a week easily. B'fast included was MORE than the usual continental-with hot pancakes and great fruit. Grounds and pool were beautiful. If you want seclusion away from the noise/action downtown--this is the place.

    -My room was on the front corner at the streetside and noise from entering/exiting the hotel, and taxi beeping was sometimes disturbing. Rooms further back would be more quiet. - Location was far north of downtown--too much for a single woman 60 years of age to walk, and needed constant taxi. (taxis were plentiful and cheap) But for backpackers and the younger generation who can easily walk, it would not be too much.

    From the moment we walked into the inernal tropical courtyard at Posada Yum Kin we knew we'd found something very special.The manager Ricardo was always available and very helpful, from renting us a car,(offering us bicycles until it arrived) to having clothes laundered. The kitchen facilities were great and a welcome relief from eating out every meal. Their breakfast is very good. Who can turn down pancakes and French toast! Had our best massage ever from Elvira, who comes to the hotel and sets up on the top terrace. A perfect place to return to after exploring The amazing ruins at Tulum and Coba and swimming with the Turtles in Akumel. Tulum beach is pretty spectacular but more of short car ride than a bicycle ride. This place is expanding so go soon if you enjoy the quiet life.The pool is well-maintained and general lay-out of terraces and front porches on the rooms is very well thought out. A perfect place to relax and use as a jumping off point for the ama

    It was the perfect non-touristy, non-resort, beautiful getaway! My husband and I found Ricardo an excellent resource for the area. The pool and breakfast were great bonuses too. We liked that it was in town (yet so quiet), and not removed from the true Mexico like beach resorts!

    When the free rent bikes weren't available, the walk wasn't quite as accessible to the town centre (but still only 20 min away!)

    Service was great! Ricardo was always right there to answer all questions and the lady at breakfast was sweet, too. All in all, we wished we could have extended our stay because we felt so comfy!

    Posada Yum Kin was everything we love in a b&b: unique, comfortable, private, relaxing, detail-oriented, and well-situated (by car). A short drive to Tulum's main commercial drag, beach, and Mayan ruins, the hotel's modest exterior belies a delightful interior. Rooms and suites wind around two inner-courtyards filled with vegetation, fountains, lounging areas, and an exquisite swimming pool and spa. Spiraling stairs, balconies, bridges, hamocs, and tropical birds thrilled my inner- child who felt like she was staying with "The Swiss Family Robinson." Private baths, free wifi, a/c, ceiling fans, and crisp linens were decidedly 21st century. The copious breakfast was delicious with local organic specialties and fruit. One unexpected and well-appreciated touch was the filled water-cooler in the room. Above all, the staff was very friendly and very eager to please. We imagined renting the whole place to hold an intimate wedding or family reunion. In the end, we wished we'd had an extra day to further enjoy the place! Thank you pyk!!!
