Very nice small hotel right at the beach. I really liked interior and decor of the place - bohemian, rustic and a bit hipsterish. Every singe detail is thought through and fits perfectly into charming Tulum beach area. Food in the restaurant was delicious and staff vey friendly and helpful. Playa Kin Ha is a real Carribean paradise!

rooms are no well maintained, flaking paint, clogged shower head, flimsy screen door, no air. Garden view is actually restaurant entrance view. Pots and pans clanking until 11 pm, raking of the garden started at 6. Staff was as indifferent as the rooms Lots of other choices in Tulum. Choose one of them

Didn't stay at the hotel but were there almost every day. The beach is beautiful and almost always empty. The food is delicious and the staff is more then excellent. They even give you free hummus to snack on. Highly recommend a visit.

I love this place! It maintains the essence of Tulum, super low key and exclusive, quiet and peaceful, delicious food in La Cocina de Corina, super nice personnel, everyone is making sure that you have the best time, very attentive. Right in the heart of the Tulum beach area, cozy, hammocks, quiet areas, private beach, not crowded, at your convenience....

We absolutely loved our stay at Playa Kin Ha! We stayed in the ocean front room right over main dining area. We spent the evenings sitting on our balcony sipping mezcal and watching the moon rise and went to sleep to the sounds of the waves. If you keep the sliding glass doors open the strong ocean breeze through the...

We came here to kick off our honeymoon and couldn't have wished for a better start. The hotel rooms are fairly basic, but for the price they're great value and to have the beach literally on your doorstep makes them exceptional. We had one of the beach front rooms and waking up on our first morning we were able to...

We definitely enjoy the quaint, local flavor over the all-inclusives (none of which are in the area)...and Kin Ha Playa definitely fits the bill. Only minor beef...suppose I would have enjoyed a light out on the balcony for nighttime reading. Excellent restaurant next door (Posada Margherita), but also lots of cool bars/restaurants along the beach. Gotta drive to Coba and...

The restaurant was open every morning until about 930pm, serving beach front food and drinks. They have a range of good friend. The hotel itself is small and...
