“So relaxing, we stopped twice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

My husband and I had reservations for a 1 night pitstop. We were heading south and figured this was a good first stop after leaving Cancun and a long travel day. This was the most perfect place to acclimate and relax. We were so beat and hungry when we arrived. Liz welcomed us at the door and she was an absolute angel! It was instant relief the second we walked in!
The hotel is on the edge of town so it is very peaceful. The key is.....enjoy the music, shops, and bustle of town ..........but then have a quiet place to stay when you call it an evening! You can walk, bike, or cab it a couple blocks to mainstreet. The road doesn't have much traffic and had a safe feeling. Lots of locals were walking & riding it. (There are a few guest bikes in the hotel courtyard) The rooms are really clean and if "classy jungle" was a decor term.... it would apply here! Lots of space to set your stuff and reorganize. Great AC if needed. We opened the windows and used the ceiling fan in the evening. The cross breeze through the room was flapping the light window covers and it was really pleasant. The bed was just right. The shower got hot and had pressure! Breakfast is served on site and consisted of pancakes, eggs w/ veggies, fresh fruit, and more. Very nice. The property is secure and entry is through a locked gate.
Liz is wonderful. She's full of suggestions and stories. When we came back through on our way north.....we stayed again! She was there to welcome us with open arms! I suggest reserving a room ahead. We happened to luck out and there was one available. We had a chance to look at some other lodging options in town and nothing compares. We will definitely stay again next time!

Hola, E!
We really appreciate your kind words, we were as lucky to have such a sweet couple like you as you were to see that black jaguar. Amazing things happen to those who really see through their eyes and soul. We are really looking forward to see you again with more adventures to share. Our deepest regards, always.

We highly recommend this Hotel, which permeates cultural & Eco tranquility and beauty. Making us feel at home was their delightful manager Liz. This truly is a place to chill, unwind, and depart totally rejuvenated! We enjoyed the breakfast and evening dips in the pool. Our suite-casita had all the beauty of what we imagined a hotel in a tropical setting would be. We also recommend calling Irving for personal Taxi service and/or using the Colectivos to get around. Lastly, pack light!

When my Husband and I chose our hotel we wanted to experience the real Mexico and not a clinical resort like Cancun, Posada Yum Kim is a beautiful personal and tranquil hotel with only 12 rooms set in an area of Tulum just off of the main avenue were real locals live, eat and shop amongst the jungle trees you will be woken early by the birds, crickets and frogs and if it rains the drops plopping between the palm leaves which we found delightful an dreamlike. Liz the manager went out of her way to ensure our stay was comfortable helped us get use to local customs, told us the best places at both end of our budget to eat(one day we ate for $69 pesos for the 2 of us and it was delicious!) and ensured we were not ripped of by taxi drivers. We booked all of our tours before we arrived but in hindsite wish we had let Liz handle this for us too as think we would have go a better service. We had a kitchenette in our room including blender for margaritas, solstice rustic wood chairs and table, 2 double beds, fans and AC and a beautiful bathroom and our own private terrace with a hammock candles and comfy rustic wooden furniture. It was like being transported to another world and so peaceful. The pool was lovely and included breakfast yummy and good variety, I am gluten free and was able to eat there every morning. I we ever return to Mexico I will definitely stay here again. In the interest of balance for those who have left negative comments (and there aren't a lot) as humidity was high the room felt damp some of the time however this is no complaint against hotel you are in the jungle what do you expect!! And It goes away once the AC has been run a few times. And those crazy people who complained about noise from dogs or birds the only noises we heard were the sound of the jungle animals birds, crickets etc and it was heavenly, much better than the sounds of the motorway in the UK! It is a beautiful and comfortable place with friendly helpful staff do not hesitate to book here you will not regret it!

This was the last stop of our honeymoon. Having been to Isla Holbox, Villadolid and Merida before coming here to Tulum. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. We loved the rooms and the whole grounds. Very we'll kept. The staff was awesome and very helpful. Breakfast every morning was great! If you go we recommend renting the bikes and riding around the town. We took the bikes all the way to the ruins and along the path to Xcaret. Stopping at a local restaurant on the beach for some cervezas. There's a small eating "puesto" on the way to town across the street from the cerveceria the owner is from Veracruz and there food was great. Tulum was a small town with a lot of character. Great alternative to the busier towns along the Cancun highway.

Our whole stay was an unique experience and highly recommend PKY. We were 3 friends traveling to Tulum who stayed in November 2013. The attention to detail in the hotel was amazing. Our room was beautifully decorated - mosaic sink, hammock on the porch, and rustic wooden furniture were just some of the little touches that made the hotel more like a home straight out of the pages of a home design magazine. The staff were wonderful - Liz the manager is such an asset to the hotel and was so warm, cheeky and accommodating. Breakfast was a pleasure and delicious. This place is the perfect place to relax and soothe the soul.

We were looking for a romantic getaway on the Mayan Riviera, culturally distant from the resort cities of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Last year we had passed through Tulum, and were intrigued that the area seemed to be relatively under-developed. Before returning this year we searched the listings of hotels and decided on Yum Kin. It was exactly what we were hoping it would be. Comfortable bed, clean room, excellent breakfast buffet, friendly staff, strong wifi signal, and a laid back atmosphere on the edge of a tropical paradise. We rented their bikes for two days, taking leisurely rides to the beach. Almost never do we stay at the same hotel more than once, but no doubt this one would be an exception to our rule!

I could not have been happier with our stay in Tulum. When we first arrived at Posada Yum Kin we were warmly greeted by Liz. She showed us to our room and then gave us a nice tour of the building. Our room was very clean and the perfect size. We had our own balcony and we also had access to other community areas throughout the hotel.
Each morning we awoke to breakfast down by the pool. Every morning there was bread, pancakes, some variety of eggs, granola, fruit and more. We were able to relax by the pool while finishing up our coffee.
The staff was extremely warm and friendly. They went out of their way to make our stay unforgettable. One day we had booked tickets to xplor and had not realized that we needed to bring the exact credit card with us that we used online, luckily Jill was more than willing to help us out and with just a short wait we were able to enter with no problem.
We were very pleased with our stay and plan to return to Posada Yum Kin as soon as possible.
