Very good breakfast by the pool - we think the buffet suited the traditionalists as well as the more daring tourist. The hotel would get five points if the pool had not been full of leaves and hotel was located...

The staff were amazing, really went above and beyond. Hotel itself is comfortable and pretty. Clean bathrooms. However the location is a bit random - not really close to anything. It's a 10 min walk to the Main Street and anything else requires transport. Only real negative - if you arrive late at night, it's difficult to get into the...

So, it's a bit scary to walk back at night, plus there's a constant smell of...

I was traveling Tulum for the first time and by myself so I was relying on some tips from the locals anyway. The Posada Yum Kin is a beautiful place located in easy walking distance from the Main Street and yet very quiet. The boutique hotel has such a calm and pretty vibe throughout, with lots of plants, tiny walkways...
