We found this place on tripadvisor and had high expectations arriving. We were not let down! The apartment hotel is right on the beach, you just cross a street and you're there. The apartments have nice balconies with sea view and a bbq! The kitchenette is fully equipped and if you are missing something just ask the friendly staff and...

This is a very good option in La Paloma. It is well designed for a beach hotel--meaning, common spaces/hallways are outside, so there is easy access to the beach. The staff is very nice (but speak minimal english. They were very patient with our Spanish skils). We appreciated the pre packed "beach buggies" and the use of cruiser bikes. Yes--the...

Brasilia, DF
Reviewed 13 January 2015

The hotel has a bad cost/benefit relation. I found it extremely expensive for the quality of services it provides. It charges high end prices for a tacky décor, with cheap copies of design furniture, a mix of cold white lights and warmer yellow ones, and a small bathroom with a huge Jacuzzi taking most of the space. Furniture is piled...

The rooms are new, clean, and very spacious with very comfortable beds and bedding and very quiet. I loved my breakfast on the balcony over looking the water. It is a...

What a treasure! This is by far the best hotel in La Paloma, and perhaps all of Rocha. The rooms are clean, bright and spacious with modern kitchenettes and large balconies. Every patio has a traditional parrilla -- a barbecue grill with free wood supplied for the essential asada. This is a quiet retreat, perfect for writers, artists or anyone...

This was the find of our lovely vacation in Uruguay. We stumbled upon it on trip advisor and we were so thankful one of the 16 rooms were available. The owners and staff are exceptional- always there to help two travelers who never make a reservation ahead of time and don't speak Spanish. The rooms are well thought out with...

Staying at Zen was the highlight of our trip. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable, with a gorgeous ocean view. But the people make the difference at this hotel.

We´ve been visiting La Paloma for years, but the lack of really good accomodation always persisted. Well, not anymore. This place is by far the best in La Paloma.

Look no futher, Zen is simply outstanding in every aspect. Suggesting it to other travelers whom we've met on this trip, I referred to Zen as the lap of luxury. This is our 2nd trip to Uruguay, but the first visting this area of beautiful coastline. Reservation was painless, Tamara speaks flawless English (pro active owners!) and responded to our...
