"From the room to the pool or beach or restaurant"
We wanted to have a good time with no worries and that is what we got. The pool, the beach, the restaurant were just a short walk via a jungle like setting. The staff was amazing and the mayan coffee from 4 to 6 was the bomb. We can't wait for next year because we are going back.
We live in Cancun and go to Playa almost once a month. The property we used to go to closed, so have been looking for a new one. We have never wanted to pay the extra money for a beach front property, we are always out all day at the beach. Kinbe has great rooms, very stylish with balcony overlooking the interior of the property with trees and pool. It was also amazing quiet, something you always have to be careful on 5th Ave, since this is in between the beach and 5th, it is perfect. This will be our new go to for Playa del Carmen get aways.
Just stayed here for 1 night whilst travelling around the peninsula. Could have stayed longer. Lovely small hotel consisting of small blocks among the palms and next to the beach. Staff were welcoming, restaurant was good and area made a refreshing change from high-rise blocks of Cancun.

This is a very small boutique hotel. It is right on 5th avenue. You can walk out and start shopping to your left or right. Right across the street (no cars allowed), is where you eat breakfast at the Ladybug and it is provided by the hotel. There are trees and plants in the lobby because it is open to the sky. You never have to worry about getting wet though because everywhere you go is covered. We loved it and planning on returning on our next visit. We got there early and they kept our bags until our room was ready and our plan left in the evening and they kept our bags after we checked out until we were ready to leave.
Pros: Beach has no rocks great sand and perfect water temp. The Ala carte meals are outstanding (though the beef is not the quality americans are used to). Excellent service, lots of fun things to do for free (Zumba, beach volleyball and soccer, mini golf, video games, pool, air hockey, fussball, ping pong, computer access, sports bar and doing shots of Tequilla to name a few.
Cons: the food at the buffets is fair to good and there is no air conditioning in them. The booze quality is poor but the quantity is endless. The beds and pillows in the rooms could use improvement. It is a big place and the walking bothers some but not us. The elite club presentation takes forever (3-5 hrs) so avoid it unless you want to come back every other year or more. Though the massages we got for going were great. We never went until this year when a member convinced us it was a good deal and ultimately we agreed, IF you want do a Sandos vacation almost every year. We decided we did.
Conclusion: This was our 7th trip to the area and 4th to this resort so we finally joined the elite club, their vacation club which makes the Booze, beds, pillows and meals Much, Much better, especially the hard liquor. I think it will save us money when we come at the busier times Feb - early May and makes this a 5 star experience instead of a solid 4 star. For the money this is a great place, if you don't want to swim in the ocean go to Sandos Carcoal.
