My husband and I spent the first couple of nights of our honeymoon at the Posada Yum Kin. The property is very attractive and well kept with lush vegetation and hammocks adorning the courtyard. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. We felt extremely relaxed at the Posada Yum Kin. We spent a couple of nights at a fancy all inclusive place in Playa del Carmen after leaving Tulum and we wished we had stayed longer at the Posada Yum Kin instead!

Room Tip: I gave the sleep quality a "very good" instead of "excellent" rating because the...

Our family spent 6 nights here and even if the location wasn't what we expected we must say its a great place to stay at. Carlos with staff are very helpful and gave us information about restaurants on the beach. The beach is really fantastic but the best parts are owned by hotels and you need to drink or eat something there to get access. Taxis are cheap fr the hotel so you dont need a car. We went with small kids and they really enjoyed the pool and hammocks.
Its a 10 minute walk to closest restaurant so its very practical with the kitchen facilities in the rooms.

We spent 3 nights at Posada Yum Kin and loved it. We stayed at the hotel on the edge of town. The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel itself was lovely. A really peaceful, cozy get-a-way in the town of Tulum. The rooms very large and spacious. We were actually really surprised by the size and the beautiful artwork and layout. The breakfast, which was included, was always delicious and Delia did her best to make sure we had warm bread and freshly squeezed juice whenever we needed it. Most of the fruit was also grown on the property which meant it was perfectly ripe. The staff were all very friendly and helpful with any questions or needs we had. We had an amazing stay. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Tulum.

Room Tip: The only room which was slightly noisy was room 4 across from the office. That said we were there ar...

We spent four nights (including New Year's Eve) in room number 3. Friendly staff and resourceful manager Carlo made our stay most enjoyable. Short bike ride to the heart of Tulum pueblo, free parking in front of hotel, large room. The only downside, which was out of Posada Yum Kin's control, was the noisy music from neighbouring local clubs until the wee hours (Mexican do celebrate the Christmas Holidays!) and a rooster which started to chant much before sunrise. The open-style posada has a wonderful interior garden which makes it very exotic. This posada-type hotel creates a lot of echo, which could prove to be quite annoying if you happen to have talkative people or party animals in the other rooms around you. Fortunately, the other guests seemed to be aware ot this and were very respectful.

Don't think that being away from the beach is a disadvantage. Posada Yum Kin is a short, cheap taxi ride to the beach but you save lots by being away from the more expensive stretch. Another advantage is being close to downtown where most of the action is, including delicious restaurants and the bus station where cheap fares can take you everywhere in Mexico, nearby ruins, cenotes, etc. Beautiful rooms and kitchenette, the decor, the ambience, the staff... was simply amazing. It's a perfect location for a romantic couple or family to relax and disconnect. The area was quiet and gorgeous, and we were treated like family. I would go back to Posada Yum Kin in a heartbeat!

We stayed at Posada Yum Kin for 7 nights and were very happy with the experience. It's a lovely hotel, outside of the lights and noise of downtown, and I would certainly recommend it to the traveler who is a bit more independent and is looking for a place to relax.

Our room (#9) was great, with a small patio that overlooked the trees at the end of the quiet, dead-end street. It was just what we needed with bottled water, simple kitchen, and nice bathroom (GREAT shower!).

Morning breakfasts were simple (fruit, granola, toast, fresh orange juice, cinnamon coffee and tea), but healthy and delicious.

All staff were helpful and friendly. Carlo is a gregarious host and helped us arrange scooter rentals in no time flat. He was also helpful and offered advice before we even arrived!

I don't have many complaints, but it's important to note that there wasn't clearly-available reception past 4:00 p.m. every day. We were able to track down people to help us "after hours," but I missed the ease of having an owner/manager on-site or longer front desk hours. Also a few details were missed in daily housekeeping, but our room was always impeccably clean, which is what matters most to me.

Overall, this is an excellent, well-run hotel full of kind, welcoming people. It's safe, well-maintained, clean, and lovely. We enjoyed our time at Posada Yum Kin.

We went to Tulum for New Years, stayed at Posada Yum Kin and loved it! The hotel is clean, bright and beautifully decorated. Carlo, the manager, is very friendly and gave us great recommendations on restaurants and things to do in the area.
We stayed in room #8, just perfect! Exactly what you see in the pics (or maybe even nicer). We even cooked our NYE banquet :) in the little kitchen and everything was just perfect. You would just want stay and live in this place if it hadnt been for all the fun things that you can do in Tulum and surroundings.
The one little hiccup with this posada is location. Is not awful but its quirky. Its close enough to the beach but about 5 minute drive, so it does not offer the right-on-paradise location. If beach life is what you want to do, maybe its more convenient to find something right on the beach. However, Tulum has so many things to do and see that you will have to move out of beach paradise to do them! In that case, this location works fine.
Recommendations:
- rent a car! lots of places to go and the hotel location calls for it.
- have at least one meal in El Camello, an awesome hole in a wall seafood restaurant at very cheap prices
- the float in the canals tour in Mujil is pricey but absolutely worth it! ask Carlo about it :)
- just go to Tulum! its such an incredible not-super-packed touristy paradise, that deserves your attention!
