We absolutely loved our room and our 7 day stay at Kinbe! Like others have already stated, if you are an “all in” type person this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a great location and love to be in the “middle of the action” this IS the place for you. With Kinbe being...

Its funny how some people hear noise! We stayed 10 nights at the Kinbe in January and found it to be a very gracious hotel and would stay again. The small amount of noise amounted to a hammer bing once in a while. No loud electric drills, or saws of any kind. We found the natural way of building the...

The Kimbe is a nice hotel in downtown Playa del Carmen, right off the main drag, 5th Ave. The hotel staff is friendly, the location good if you want to be in the middle of things, and the rooms nice enough. The hotel is divided into two section: the older area and the new section. We stayed in the new...

Perfect location in the heart of Playa. Simple walk to beach, right off of main shopping/restaurant strip (5th Ave) and good dive shop right across the street. Room was small and simple, but quaint, warm property and staff. This is not a place for people looking for the elegant or fancy accommodations. The closet and the bath room are tiny....

This is quite simply my favorite place to stay in Playa. The hotel is very, very affordable and you couldn't ask for a better location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kinbe is a fusion of lush tropical garden setting with distinctly chic shape that gives a soaring charm in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Close to the 5 Avenida, just 50 meters from the Caribbean Sea. The impressive reception, the particular pool, the stunning waterfall and the panoramic terrace are the enchanting of the hotel. The unique shape design of the rooms offers the guests a feeling that each room was designed especially for them. ... more   less
