“Casitas Kinsol”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Casitas Kinsol is a small family owned and operated guest house conveniently located in the old village of Puerto Morelos. Our room was lovely and Alain and Christine are wonderful hosts. They genuinely care about people and helped make our vacation special. We took their recommendations for a visit to The National Marine Park where we saw turtles, sting rays, puffer and parrot fish, coral and formations ...magical! We also took their recommendations for restaurants, bus schedules, visits to the ruins of Chichen Itza, cenotes and fishermen villages. They are a wealth of information and so very warm and friendly. We are already planning a return visit for a longer stay!!

Between Tulum and Cancun find a little town called Puerto Morelos. If you are headed to Tulum, Playa del Carmen, or Cancun, cancel the rest of your trip and stay in Pto Morelos at Casitas Kinsol (unless you go for crowds, tourists, and high prices). Our hosts were friendly and accommodating, and especially Alain was quite knowledgeable about the many and cheap food options in the neighborhood. The room was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The bed was comfy and the linens were fresh and clean. A nice young man made the room tidy every day. Only a 5 peso colectivo ride and you are at the beach, but staying in a cheaper and more comfortable locale. With several loncherias, chicken roasters, and fruterias nearby we were in Mexican heaven.

Room Tip: If you like to cook, get a unit with a kitchen.

After a week in Tulum, we drove up to Puerto Morelos to be close to the Cancun airport for an early morning departure. We loved being in the little village of Puerto Morelos at Casita Kinsol. Our room was super clean and tidy, with lovely simple decorations. The other guests were friendly and helpful. Thanks to the owners for a welcoming stay!!

Enjoyed staying here, great place. Loved the upstairs room with loft, but think next time would prefer one with a kitchen. All rooms I saw were fine, and hosts were very helpful. Not being right on the beach has its disadvantages , but room quality and nice non-touristy neighborhood overall compensate for that.

We ended up staying here after everything in our budget filled up by the beach. I have severe asthma,but I try to be easygoing about it, but dust and smells do affect my breathing (and sleep). This place was a little dusty, the mattress sagged but was comfortable. The manager was very nice and helpful however.
