I actually stayed at this hotel January 2010. This hotel is a good value for the money you pay and is like a "boutique" style hotel. Since it's been 2 years since we stayed at this establishment, I'm sure that they may have done some renovations or improvements. The staff is very helpful, except there it seemed like there was no one on staff in the late hours of the night. It's a very modern looking hotel, there is no pool except for the pool that looks like it's only for looks near the lobby. The hotel is within 2 blocks walking distance to the public beach and you can get beach towels from the front desk. When we got there our room was not ready and they upgraded us to the Garden room. We did not like this room, the bathroom toilet wasn't flushing right, it had a very small flat screen tv, a futon, coffee table and the bedroom was upstairs because it was a loft style room. Not very convenient when you have to use the restroom and have to journey down some wooden stairs. We only stayed in the room one night and they put us in the Moody room. This room was nicer and more spacious. There is a rooftop that you can go to that has chairs and tables, but there is no pool and the view isn't that great. The hotel is in a great location blocks to the beach and the main area for shopping and restaurants. This hotel is a good value for the money that you pay for, which is for the location.

Room Tip: The Moody room is the best value for your money.

This was our second trip to Kinbe, we absolutely love this little gem! We love that the beach and main street are literally seconds away. My personal favorite spot at this hotel is the rooftop, it's perfect for sunning and watching the hustle bustle of the streets below. Our room was cleaned everyday and the air-conditioning worked extremely well, we woke up cold and had to turn it off a couple of times! The front desk guys are amazing, they helped us with all of our questions and even helped us out with our Spanish when we had questions. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it is absolutely gorgeous!

A very nice building. A new employee took us up 3 flights, over the roof, then down 2 flights to are room, # 29. Everything about the room was nice, except the hard bed. Close to all of 5th ave and the beach, and dive shops.

Room Tip: ground floor

We enjoyed our stay at Kinbe, and were very pleased with the hotel overall.

Pros: location location location (right between 5av and the beach!), interesting design/decor, nice pool, quiet, big comfy bed, very clean, discounts at excellent beach club down the street, let us check in early when we arrived, and had great customer service.

Cons: the snower was a little funky (not dirty, but the floor was made up of rocks which was unusual to stand on...). It isn't a swanky place, but still is really good value for the $100-ish you spend per night.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the hotel to friends. I might suggest that my parents stay somewhere else since they prefer the high-end type of travel, but for us (no kids, still like to go out and party, not too much time spent in the room) it was perfect.

Room Tip: We chose the 2-level garden room and it was excellent. Futon/tv/fridge downstairs, cozy loft with aw...

Staying in early January. The room was marketed as one of the 'cozy' rooms. We chose the hotel because of the Lonely Planet review and TripAdvisor. We were disappointed.

The room was really small and extremely musty. We could barely breath when we first opened the door. Something might have died in the bathroom drain.

The hotel was quite noisy during the night. It is one street over from a major party street.

I'm not sure what all the hype is about this place.
