Posada Yum Kin was such a nice surprise. You get quality service from the minute you park. We arrived later in the evening and someone came out to greet us. He gave us a quick tour of the property. Once in the room, we really appreciated the filtered water (both a water dispenser and two bottles of water), the fridge,...

A beautiful place! The pictures don't do it justice. I came here with my boyfriend and we had a hard time leaving the hotel for the city and beaches. The pool is so lovely. The breakfast is great and includes tons of fruit and pancakes and french toast. Our room was decorated so nicely and had a great balcony which...

Posada Yum Kin is on the edge of town (the quite /jungle side) that being said Tulum is still a small town and everything is readily accessible by car, bike or Taxi. This is a neat hotel; the owners live on site and are extremely gracious and always ready to help, this includes, their children who are extremely helpful and...

I go to the Posada Yum Kin in early July. I was really impressed, everything is perfect, no detail has been overlooked. I looked at all the pictures on facebook and tripadvisor is even better in real life! I return to Tulum this winter, I intend to introduce my friends this wonderful place.

Very nice place. Dan and David go for the extra mile to make a wonderful experience. The place is so clean you could eat on the floors. The pool is so blue and clean. Every morn we woke up with great coffee, fruit, and pancakes.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. Its location is a few blocks off the main strip and it feels like a totally secluded garden. Since the main strip in Tulum is noisy and dirty, it was great to come back here. Amazing attention to detail: every possible place where there could be carved...

When we arrived after dark and entered the beautifully lit jungle courtyard, our son immediately exclaimed, "I love this place!" The hotel owner, Dan, happened to be in town and greeted us at the door. He was so warm and welcoming, giving us a tour of the hotel. It is easy to see the pride Dan takes in his beautiful...

We stayed over two weeks in posada yum kin with our two year old. Excellent service, nice poolside breakfast, lovely pool and a beautiful garden with fresh fruits. The people were very friendly and helpful. It's a little remote from town, but with a car that was non of a problem. If you don't have a car there are plenty...
