My father and I came down to Playa del carmen for a couple of days for a meeting. He booked us at Kinbe, thinking it's price is reasonable and just how long would we be in the room. When we arrived at the hotel my first impression was actually great. Nice little quiet hotel. We checked in with the front...

My hudsband and I just came back from Mexico (2-week trip from 27/1/06 to 13/2/06). In playa de carmen, we stayed in this hotel because of (1) recommended by Lonely Planet (book version Year 2005)(2) recommended by the agent in Cancun Airport showing us a hotel brochure with nice photos. We stayed 2 nights - one night at a standard...

My husband and I stayed at the Kinbe March/04, January/05 and are scheduled to return March/06. When we visited in 04, we rented four rooms for us and the children/grandchildren.

I am very surprised to read the recent reviews on the Hotel Kinbe. We stayed January 25th-February 1st and had such a great experience. I am kind of tired of people saying they weren't expecting a resort style hotel and then expecting a resort style hotel. The reality is for the price it can't be beat. When people complain and...

After reading some reviews of Hotel Kinbe and seeing it not favorible, this saddens me. We stayed at the hotel in November of 2004 and it was amazing. At first I was a little scared to have a room with no TV or internet connection, but it turned out to make our experience in Playa that much more enjoyable. We...

We stayed here for a little over a week. It started out ok, except for the nasty sewer smell in the rooms, mold on the walls, loud a/c unit (that leaked), and a flood in our room on the third night from a little bit of rain. I actually would have kept my mouth shut if it wasn't for the...

Recently, four of us stayed at the Kinbe for six nights, and were very dissappointed with the hotel conditions and management. We paid $80.00 per night and expected cleaner rooms at that rate. There was a musty smell in our room, #11 and black mold spots on the bathroom wall, shower curtain and on the built in shelf next to...

I've read all the reviews on here and find that the people who mainly don't like the Kinbe seemed to have expected more. No, I wouldn't stay at the Kinbe if I were on my honeymoon. ( Unless I liked quaint hotels ) No, I wouldn't stay at the Kinbe if my idea of ruffing it was staying at the...

In Brief - Rooms good size, good location off 5th Ave and V near beach, really nice staff, nice decor, rooms slightly damp (maybe due to hurricane?), air con and room safe. I really liked this hotel.

We had stayed at large resorts in Cancun and Puerto Rico and were looking for something as a quick vacation and not too pricey. We looked at several small hotels and non-AI places to keep looking at the charming Kinbe. We saw the small rooms and have experienced Mexico before, we booked our trip through Travelocity for a grand total...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kinbe is a fusion of lush tropical garden setting with distinctly chic shape that gives a soaring charm in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Close to the 5 Avenida, just 50 meters from the Caribbean Sea. The impressive reception, the particular pool, the stunning waterfall and the panoramic terrace are the enchanting of the hotel. The unique shape design of the rooms offers the guests a feeling that each room was designed especially for them. ... more   less
