This is a simple hotel about 4.5km down the Tulum beach road. The outside environment is beautiful--well taken care of beach 'jungle' and a pristine section of beach. Many other hotels in this area (in particular, those to the north) have beaches which are rocky or dirty--not the case with this hotel. The rooms are basic--a bed, private bath and hot shower with nothing but a fan and the ocean breeze in lieu of air conditioning (you don't need it). We stayed in a jungle room, which still had a nice breeze from the ocean.
The restaurant was good--much less expensive than some of the higher-end places near by. I like to eat typical Mexican food while in Mexico--huevos rancheros, tacos, fresh fruit, etc., all of which just don't have the same flavor as they do in the U.S.A. I think it may be the water--kind of like New York bagels. The restaurant, run by Corina, is exactly what I look for. Also check out Camello's in Tulum pueblo for good ceviche. If you are looking for high-end cuisine (e.g. Italian, Thai) or restaurants with chef's from New York rather than Mexico, there are plenty around.
There are two things that you can't beat about this hotel: the beach, which is a given, and the staff. Ray, Corina, and the rest of the staff were the best of the best. They treated us so well, and were accommodating in every way possible. It was nice to have staff that got to know you and your preferences while you are there. Our experiences with the trendier hotels/restaurants nearby were not authentic and some of their staff were rude. In stark contrast, the staff at Kin Ha Playa really made us feel comfortable and, along with the other positives mentioned in this review, will be the reason we come back to stay here.
