We had our wedding here in February 2013 - with the wedding ceremony and drinks and canapes on the beach, and the reception at Casa Vallejo, a house owned by the owners of Zamas, and just next door. The setting was beautiful, and the organisation on the day was faultless, everything went so smoothly. The food for the wedding dinner...

We were staying at another place down the beach, but came here for dinner. Lively scene, friendly, good food and drink. There was live music, and it was a great band - original stuff, not your standard beach-jazz fare. If I go back to Tulum, I'd eat here again.

Simple perfection. We returned to Zamas with glee after a 4 year hiatus. It is still the perfect destination for those of us who don't want an all-inclusive resort experience. The cabanas are wonderful and the restaurant is on the beach which allows for the enormous pleasure of eating every meal with your toes in the warm sands of Mexico....

We fell in love with the place; couldn't be better. Our cabana was in the garden on the beach side, lovely and clean, and we loved relaxing in our hammocks during the day and listening to the waves at night. Staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is great; we especially enjoyed the guacamole and fresh fish, and the view...

I just went for four days to Zamas and fell in love and will totally be back. This is a more rustic vacation then a resort but it is heavenly. We stayed in a second floor room, and I would highly recommend it. We had a view of the ocean and comfortable hammocks to swing from on the balcony. It...

My husband and I stayed February 12 - 16 in a small beachfront cabana, B1 (see room tip). Zamas was beautiful and well managed.
