After 5 nights in an all-inclusive Cancun resort,my wife and I enjoyed two nights at Posada Yum Kin, so that we could visit the ruins at Tulum.An easy 15 minute walk to the center of town, or a 30 peso taxi ride.Friendly,helpful staff,beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, made our stay memorable.The fridge in our room was rather loud , so I unplugged it at night, a minor annoyance.

We stayed at Posada Yum Kin last spring and decided to come back for our winter get-away. Now, we've decided that we'll come back to Posada Yum Kin every time we're in Mexico. It just feels like home. The staff is so warm and friendly. We don't really speak much spanish, but we have a great time 'chatting' with Arianna, Delia, Ascension and everyone. On this trip we learned that Delia speaks Mayan and she was happy to teach us a few words. 'El Telequech' means welcome.

The location, which last spring felt a bit out of the way, now seems perfectly positioned for our excursions each day. With a rented car, we just take two lefts and we're in position to go to Coba (another left) or to the beach -that's a right and then straight for a couple of miles. The hotel is far enough from the downtown area to be relatively quiet (the previous contributor mentioned a dog barking, but I think downtown you'd hear traffic all night -I'll take the random dog.) We like to walk in to town in the morning and along the way enjoy seeing how everyone lives -soaking up the culture.

I'm not sure how 'PYK' keeps everything so spotless, except for the fact that no one ever seems to stop doing things around the hotel. The gardens are beautiful and the exquisite pool is the best I've seen in this area. We were pleasantly surprised with bananas, papaya and mangoes for breakfast (complimentary each day). These just days before were hanging from the tree near the pool. Talk about a low eco-footprint!

The rooms! I forgot to mention the rooms! They are gorgeous! The thick adobe out walls enclose you in a literal cocoon of comfort. Each suite is an apartment to itself with a secluded little porch to laze your days away. The rooms are spacious, culturally perfect and immaculately maintained. The bathroom decor, designed with glass block and Mexican tiles, are a treat for any traveler. The kitchens are pretty much condo-like and have served our purposes well. We like to make a pot of coffee in the morning and prepare an occasional meal when we've run out of steam. It sure comes in handy!

Yes, we stayed at Posada Yum Kin last spring, last time with family and now again, just the two of us. Each time we felt well-cared for, comfortable and like we've 'found our people'. We plan to make this our place each time we come down. For us, it's a no-brainer -and we never get tired of Mexico!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great and each is unique. The top floor is airy with easy access to the pool and breakfast area. The lower floors are cozy and the garden is so intimate.

We stayed here in the 2nd week of January. Stayed 2 nights.

Location
- located in the provincial areas
- difficult to get to as the streets are not clearly marked.
- isolated area.

Service
- Staff was very helpful and attentive. Carlo brought up our bags to our room, and helped us get settled in
- The room was clean
- Complementary breakfast was provided. Just bread, juice, coffee, and fruits.

Room
- We stayed in room # 9.
- Small room, felt like a studio apartment. The room had a kitchenette.
- Water was provided for us so we didnt' have to buy.
- Balcony view to the outside.
- Dogs barking outside in the first night made it difficult to sleep

The whole ambiance felt very homely. Did not feel commercialized at all.

For what we paid, it was decent.

I can't think of a bad thing to say about Posada Yum Kin, and I've tried to think of something. All I can come up with is that the tires on the rental bikes needed some serious pumping up.

I don't think that counts as much of a criticism. (Especially because the staff happily produced a pump in no time.)

The rooms are lovely, the staff is lovely, the pool is great, and the location is nicely positioned away from the bustle. It's a pleasant 30 minute bike ride to the beach, or a quick drive. The beds were comfy, the kitchenette was great, and we had a hammock in front of our room.

A note to LGBT travellers: The folks at Posada Yum Kin were absolutely gracious to my husband and me.

The place is really beautiful. The entire staff is attentive, and especially the manager.
We enjoyed our stay at Posada Yum Kin. The only flaw is the location that is not easily accessible by walking.

Room Tip: swimming pool
