DO NOT STAY HERE!! This place was quite disgusting and had a terrible/apathetic service. Very dirty from lack of cleaning. Bed bugs, ciggarete butts, and trash all over. The shared bathroom had fecal matter on the wall and was NOT clean at all. Because of these conditions the amount of insects attracted to our Cabana (Tulum) was unreal and we...

I stayed in Zazilkin in December 2010 with my boyfriend. It was our first trip together and we wanted to have a romantic time together. We booked the most expensive room in the hotel for 3 nights. When we got there, we were very disappointed. The room was basic and it was in a small building very far from the...

If you're looking for a typical resort environment and amenities, Zazilkin is the wrong place. However, I love the laid back environment, simple accommodations, proximity to other resorts/restaurants, and fantastic beach -- and I will trek there for my 3rd time in January.

We decided to tack on a 2 day Tulum trip onto a trip to Cancun for a friend's wedding. We drove along the cabanas in the area and decided on Zazil-kin because they were the closest to the ruins. If you are looking for a Cancun all-inclusive style vacation, this is not for you. If you want beautiful, quiet beaches...

I paid $30 for 1 night in a Cabana. The accomodations could have been much better. The service was horrible. I don't think it was worth the money despite being on the beautiful beach.

I had a really bad experience with them. The breakfast was awful, they tried to charge us for having the free breakfast that should be included in the sort of high price we paid for.... The cabinet was nice, but the cleaning service was made during the afternoons, when we wanted to take a shower after being outside all day...

Great no frills cabanas located right on the beach. We paid 500 pesos for a 2 bed canana. Bathrooms are shared but clean and rooms are simple with surprisingly comfy beds and mosquito netting. Plus these cabanas are the closest to the ruins. Great little bar on site with happy hour until 9:45 at night!

It's a shame the contrast between the beauty of Tulum's scenery and the poor service and bad travel experience we had in this hotel. We rented a cottage for a couple of nights, which "in theory" did not include room service. As we weren't sure, at noon the next day we wanted to make sure of it. The receptionist assured...

First: This is the fantasy beach you see in commercials. I LOVED the beach - enjoyed the water for hours. But I had great difficulty enjoying this place. It was my first experience in a cabana - and my last. Walk 30 yards to a common toilet building. No soap there; bring it with you if hand-washing is important. Walk...

This set of cabanas has the BEST beach location, a very friendly staff, but is very rustic. Do not go here expecting 24 hour electricity, hot water, or A/C. Bring towels, sheets, bug repellent, or even a citronella candle, maybe even some extra pillows. Sounds like alot to bring, but the only other things you really need in Tulum are...
