Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Cancun is a madhouse. It is full of beach hotels and the strip. If You have Booked a package holiday these are great, but I like to stay and dive in Xcalak. That is the southernmost town on the coast. I have been staying at the kinmayab Now for years. Their rooms are clean, great and cheap enough.

This is a great value town hotel. Somewhere to stop off before you start your central American adventure.

The rooms have wifi, breakfast and air con and all have clean bathrooms.

The staff are helpful, polite, and for anyone who cares, they have free secure parking.

Room Tip: Just book it.... This place Is exactly what it says

We stayed at the Kin Mayab for three separate nights during August. The location could not be beaten for us. It is literally across the road from the bus station, and within easy reach of plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops. We found the staff to be pleasant, helpful and friendly. The hotel is attractive, with the rooms clean and interesting. We had two different rooms - one was particularly big, and the other was smaller but with a tiny balcony, which was nice. You pay extra for your breakfast if you choose to have it in the hotel, which we did and we thought it was very good, in pleasant surroundings. The hotel provides drinking water and there is free internet in the lobby. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom fairly small but absolutely fine. I think it is worth mentioning that we never felt unsafe walking around in that area, even in the evening. It was quite busy, with ordinary people going about their business.

After a very shaky start arriving in cancun and heading to Hostel marpez ( would not recommend this to ANYONE-see other review) we eneded up staying a night at Kin Mayab. It was clean, spacious, air conditioned. Only bad side was that the price didn't include breakfast and the location is in downtown Cancun so not ideal if you want to go to the clubs. An ideal stopover though as its right near the bus station.

When the taxi pulled into the central circle in downtown Cancun and then swept up to a rather nondescript entryway, we began to wonder about our choice. However, everything has turned out pretty well. What can one expect from a downtown hotel? Well, it is clean first of all. Second, doors and windows are secure. Third, not a bad size, with a new television and rather comfortable bed. Our WiFi has worked fine.
The main advantage to Kin Mayab is the proximity to the Ado bus depot. It is about a block away and an easy walk even rolling a couple of suitcases behind you.
Is it a five star luxury hotel, no. But it has made do quite nicely for an overnight in downtown Cancun.

Room Tip: Main floor, close to the entrance is easy for luggage and convenience.

Although this hotel is cheap ($ 50) you should be able to expect basic services.
Our flight left early the next morning so we asked for wake-up and ordered a taxi at the reception.
Luckily, we had our own alarm clocks ... for no one woke us and no taxis were on hand.

Really want to offer a more objective opinion on Kin Mayab. Had they charged around $50 USD per night, we would have not much complaint, but they charge more than twice of that per night: for that, there is no in-room wi-fi; breakfast is not included; room and property are older than and not as brightly lit as the photos shown. Yes, it's very close to the main bus station; walking with luggage for 2min works; that extra convenience could be worth $5 USD more, but not $65 more since ADO is for airport and far away city connections, not your other downtown or ariund Cancun bus rides. For around $70, you could stay in Oasis America, as we learn in our research after we arrived locally, that's only a 20-30 peso, 6-min taxi ride down the street, which includes a very good buffet breakfast and well designed pool. The pool of Kin Mayab is actually located off the main premise, in the secondary building: the road connecting the two parts is old, unevenly paved concrete that's more like an external side street than an intergral part of any hotel. In any case, if the price is much more reasonable, this can be a value play; but for this price, we feel quite ripped off as we later stay at another hotel that's much newer and with much better amentites (breakfast included) for much less.

This was a very nice hotel. Mexican breakfast was great. Rooms were clean. Bathroom was average.

Great value for money.

Room Tip: All very similar.
