We were constantly impressed with the hotel. Staff were incredibly helpful and nice. Great location, about 3kms from the beach and short walk to downtown Tulum. They offer bikes for easy/free transport to the beach, ruins, cenotes etc. Couldn't fault this hotel, everything was spot on and made our time in Tulum unforgettable.
We enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks at this hotel for our honeymoon. The hotel itself is built in the Mayan Style in beautiful landscaped gardens. The hotel staff were fantastic, they couldn't do enough for you and always with a smile. The restaurant was good with fresh food. The ruins are short 15 minute bicycle ride away as are stunning beaches up the coast. Tulum town is also 15 mins away by bicycle, offering many bars, restaurants and gift shops. There is a huge choice of tours and day trips to the surrounding area - Sian Ka'an is not to be missed, nor Coba Mayan ruins or the various cenotes. Holiday of a lifetime :)
We had two nights at this very nice hotel. Our room was very clean and modern and especially all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend it to others and consider returning next summer for a few days
I very much enjoyed our time at La Flaca- we (me, my mother, and my son) stayed there for a few days and it was exactly what I was looking for. Great food, good drinks, very comfortable atmosphere, etc. The rooms are great, but they're certainly in the really-nice-hostel category, not 5-star-luxury, but honestly, if you're looking for that you'll be in Cancun rather than Tulum. When I return, I won't even think twice about where I'll stay - La Flaca !
A beautiful setting and a lovely hotel. We loved chilling out on the sun beds, eating at the fabulous restaurant, the comfy rooms, hot showers and great stretch of beach. Having no electricity sockets in the room is a little awkward, and the air con going off from midnight until 8am makes for a warm night but this was more than made up for by this hidden gem.

"Best staff ever, a beautiful quaint place to stay."
If you're wanting the experience of a large touristy hotel, this place is not for you. No a/c, TV or in room coffee service here. You'll get bugs, maybe a crab, and lots of and in your room. The staff works very hard to make your stay enjoyable. The property is quaint, the beach is lovely and not crowded.
We stayed at the Posada Yum Kin for 5 nights ( 2 adults and my ten year old girl) and had a wonderful time. It's a lovely place, full of beautiful plants and flowers and hammocks right outside your door. The room was large and pretty with lots of Mexican tiles and very comfortable. Had A.C. and a fully equipped kitchen. Stove, sink, fridge, dishes, silverware, pots and pans etc. There was a lovely pool and the morning breakfast was much better than I had assumed it would be. Not just bread and coffee, but yummy eggs and pancakes and fruit, cereal etc.
The staff, Liz and Claudia especially were very helpful and nice, making phone calls for us to book tours, taxi's etc.
This hotel is not right near the beach, so if you want a hotel located right at the beach, this isn't the place, but if you want a lovely hotel near town where you can take a taxi ride to the beach, this is the place!

Lets start with the awe inspiring entrance and smells of incense in the lobby. The cool wash cloth and cold cucumber and mint water awaiting my husband and I were well recieved after a 90 minute drive from Cancun. The staff were/are AMAZINGLY attentive. Goudy carried our bags while he gave us a tour of the property on the way to our room. The room was in Villa 4 with a partial ocean view. It was clean and very cold.
People have complained about the music at the pool, but it was welcomed for us. They are in transition from a gay resort to a wellness one. The music only plays until 6pm, however, the view from the infinity pool and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks was so AMAZING, that it was easy to block out the dance music until a good song came on.
The food was AMAZING. You could eat from the buffet, or order off of rotating menus with a Japanese, Italian, or Mexican theme, or you could do both a buffet and order off the menu. Alcoholic drinks are all included, except if you want a bottle of wine or champagne. The food is so fresh, tastes great, and a total experience you must enjoy everyday. At breakfast I recommend the huevos rancheros and a cappuccino - AMAZING.
In short, beautiful grounds with free WiFi in the game room, spectacular view of the Carribean Sea, and close proximity to the Coba and Tulum ruins. Public beach access is just down the road. And there is a huge sense of security, because the police are posted outside the front gates.
