Just got back today and loved this hotel and I highly recommend it.
I agree with almost all the reviews here.
Just one clarification for travelers that are as addicted to the Internet as I am.
Kin Ha DOESN'T have WIFI. The listing on the booking site I used was incorrect in saying it did.

You need to get a coffee or a drink at a nearby hotel or restaurant.
As long as you buy something, they are all comfortable giving out their password.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Choose one of the two ocean view rooms if possible. Let Ray cook you a lobster - he's better th...

We wanted to stay somewhere special for my birthday and asked the price at a few hotels by the beach, everything was very expensive but Kin-Ha was reasonably priced. We had a fantastic two nights, the manager was really welcoming and friendly and for the night of my birthday they made me a cake (and didn't charge us which was really kind). We had a really relaxing stay and hope one day to go back.

Kin Ha was exactly what we were looking for at our stay in Tulum. Low key, relaxed and beachfront. This isnt a 5 star stay so if you are looking for more, (a/c, pool, flatscreen, wifi, ipod dock, etc..) look elsewhere. However if you a looking for a clean, comfortable, great value, beachfront room, where you feel like you have gotten away from it all Kin Ha is perfect. Sparkling blue ocean, beers in the hammocks, happy hour downstairs with slasa roja and tostadas, listening to the ocean as you fall asleep...what more can you want?

This was the perfect right on the beach hotel for my husband and I. We stayed the week of Thanksgiving. There were only a couple other guests while we were there, so it felt like we had the hotel and beach to ourselves. We had one of the Oceanview rooms above the restaurant and the sound of the waves were perfect to fall asleep to. I also enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. We snorkeled directly from the beach in front of the hotel and found a few spots beautiful coral and gorgeous tropical fish. The breakfast included with the room was fresh fruit and toast and jam, basic but very good. And the coffee was fresh and yummy. The view of the beach from the restaurant was breathtaking and an amazing start to the day. Oh, and I highly recommend the Seafood meal for 2 on the menu. The seafood was super fresh and delicious and it is sooo much food, well worth the price for a special dinner. The staff was very friendly, always with smiles on their faces. The hotel has a family feel and they are all very welcoming. It isn't high luxury, but clean rooms for a great price right on the beach with everything you need for a relaxing getaway. It's also a short trip to many of the Cenotes and Xel-ha and you could almost walk (or at least ride a bike) to the Mayan ruins.

Room Tip: The upgrade to the oceanview rooms are worth the price.

Stayed here for 6 nights in Jan. If you can pay for a sea view room - 200bucks for a beautiful bright clean room with basic facilities but a big balcony looking onto the most perfect beach. Run by lovely people who cant do enough for you. Breakfast is included - just fresh fruit and toast, plus juice with tea or coffee, but very generous helpings! Great location for lazing on the endless beach all day before jumping in a taxi into town (50 pesos each way) in the evening for dinner.

Well worth the money for what you get.

Room Tip: Sea view all the way.... but the ones behind are fab value, however evem more 'no frills' t...

Playa Kin Ha is a clean and nice place to stay on a budget in Tulum. The best part about the hotel is its position on the beach, (a good one) and it's proximity to Posada Margherita next door. If you are looking for a no frills experience, this is a good hotel. Posada Margherita is amazing for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can step out of your room and be there in one minute. At Playa Kin Ha, definitely only stay in the rooms facing the ocean, there are two of them.

Room Tip: Ocean Front rooms
