Out room at Kin Ha was spartan and the service was pretty hands-off, but the location was so great that we easily overlooked any minor discomforts. Kin Ha seems to be a lot cheaper than other places in the area--if you want to stay on the beach and don't want to spend an arm and a leg, this is the...

Playa Kin Ha is one of the cheaper ones on the beach in Tulum, but it's arguable whether the value is there. I stayed here for 5 nights and had a fine time - there was nothing horrible, but there was also nothing amazing. The rooms are bare bones - one fluorescent light lit the room and another such light...

Expectations differ. When I spend $10 or $20 or even $40, I have certain expectations... When I spend $120 a night, I don't expect to go to sleep and wake up to the drone of a generator. They've got a nice website, but slick photography is not enough. The location is good - which is the case for almost every...

My husband and I booked this hotel last minute, frankly because most other hotels in Tulum were sold out. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about the hotel when we arrived; rooms very simple and dining area/bar super small. But the reviews were great and the views could not be beaten! Breakfast consisted of coffee and toast...

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband in December 2010. It is a lovely little place (6 rooms I think) right on the beach. We got the partial ocean view room. We didn't actually see the ocean since all of their palm trees were in the way, but the weather was very windy so we actually think this...

After a very bad experience at La Vita è Bella we moved here. What a big difference! This is a nice hotel with very friendly staff. I liked the decoration of the hotel very much (trendy). The room (number 3) was great value for money. Big, light, great oceanview, good balcony, nice bathroom, enough storage possibilities and a good bed....

For the second time we traveled in Mexico. Tulum, a gem in the Costa Maya, was a stop that could not be missed. We stayed at Kin-Ha back in 2006 and we loved it. Surprisingly, we found the Hotel was completely renovated ( we were told that a hurricane in 2008 had totally wacked the place) and despite the new...
