"That won't happen to me!" , I thought when I read the bad reviews. Sure enough, they did. I thought I would be the exception, especially because I had been e-mailing back and forth with Andrea at the hotel. When we get there, they told us we did not have a room because the one we booked had burned down!!!...

This is a very nice hotel with a great location, but one terrible problem: noise. During the day, construction is going on in a property adjacent to the hotel. Work there starts at 9 AM, and ends around 5, so if you are planning to have a late morning start, forget about it. At night, on the other side of...

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was spotless. The front desk staff were friendly and gave excellent information. Close to the beach and great night life. Great atmosphere.

We absolutely loved our room and our 7 day stay at Kinbe! Like others have already stated, if you are an “all in” type person this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a great location and love to be in the “middle of the action” this IS the place for you. With Kinbe being...

Its funny how some people hear noise! We stayed 10 nights at the Kinbe in January and found it to be a very gracious hotel and would stay again. The small amount of noise amounted to a hammer bing once in a while. No loud electric drills, or saws of any kind. We found the natural way of building the...

The Kimbe is a nice hotel in downtown Playa del Carmen, right off the main drag, 5th Ave. The hotel staff is friendly, the location good if you want to be in the middle of things, and the rooms nice enough. The hotel is divided into two section: the older area and the new section. We stayed in the new...

Booked our stay through there website. Photos are misleading. Arrived there and the room smelled of mildew and workers were renovating our floor . Room was very cramped and dark! This is a place for teens who just need a place to crash.They offered us another room for only one night of our stay and said we would be back...

Perfect location in the heart of Playa. Simple walk to beach, right off of main shopping/restaurant strip (5th Ave) and good dive shop right across the street. Room was small and simple, but quaint, warm property and staff. This is not a place for people looking for the elegant or fancy accommodations. The closet and the bath room are tiny....

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
