We had a wonderful stay at Posada Yum Kin. The hotel is quiet and friendly in its authentic decoration. We got the feeling of being in Mexico. The staff is extremely friendly and helped us solve problems related to the rented car and other things. The hotel is situated a couple of kilometres away from down town Tulum, which means...

Wonderful natural decor and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We actually ended up being the only people in the hotel when we stayed for 8 nights at the end of October 2016. Breakfast was delicious by the pool and the our room was large and clean and included a water dispenser, balcony overlooking the natural decor in the...

Spent 10 nights at PYK with family over Christmas 2016, and had a wonderful time. Rooms were very comfortable, spacious and impeccably clean. We loved the peace and quiet - it is a real oasis. We also had a few special requests, which were all accommodated in a very friendly and gracious fashion. We couldn't have asked for a better...

I visit Tulum fairly often and have tried a number of smaller, more moderately-priced hotels in town. Posada Yum Kin is a wonderful place, very helpful and friendly staff, and a beautiful authentic-feeling Mexican hostel. My room was basic but clean and tidy, everything worked as I expected, hot water, Wi-Fi, AC, and kitchen was well-stocked to do light cooking,...

Arriving nearby the hotel we started to wonder if we didn't get lost as the neighborhood doesn't look really nice and it seems many poor people are living in the area across the street. However, as soon as the woman from the hotel opened the door we started to feel better. The woman who welcomed us was really nice and...

A wonderful escape for four ladies. We travelled the Yucatan and felt this place was home. Very spacious suites, all uniquely decorated. I'd stay in any one of them. We booked suite 2. Huge washroom, sweet beds made up so pretty daily. We loved the hammocks and purchased a few from staff. Yes the jungle has been cut down and...

Extremely friendly staff, and a hotel of a natural decor we have never experienced (and we have experienced a lot). Very good breakfast by the pool - we think the buffet suited the traditionalists as well as the more daring tourist. The hotel would get five points if the pool had not been full of leaves and hotel was located...

The staff were amazing, really went above and beyond. Hotel itself is comfortable and pretty. Clean bathrooms. However the location is a bit random - not really close to anything. It's a 10 min walk to the Main Street and anything else requires transport. Only real negative - if you arrive late at night, it's difficult to get into the...

This hotel looked very promising online, the main problem with it (we found out) is the location. Though relatively close to town centre, it is located at the very end of a local neighbourhood and bordering a forest where local are fighting over land. So, it's a bit scary to walk back at night, plus there's a constant smell of...

I was traveling Tulum for the first time and by myself so I was relying on some tips from the locals anyway. The Posada Yum Kin is a beautiful place located in easy walking distance from the Main Street and yet very quiet. The boutique hotel has such a calm and pretty vibe throughout, with lots of plants, tiny walkways...
