If you want to relax and eat in a casual setting with excellent views, this is your place. The food is good and the prices are better than other places in Tulum. The two times we were there in 2016 there was live music at dinner. The service wasn't very fast, but with those views, it did not matter a... More

Lovely setting, my husband and I had breakfast here twice. Beautiful spot to sit, relax and watch the birds. Best breakfast items, Fancy Toast with avocado and goat cheese, side of bacon and ricotta doughnuts which are made to order and AMAZING. Friendly staff, worth a visit for sure.

The setting at zamas is amazing ( spent my honeymoon there 20 years ago ) but the drinks and food didn't match .... they lacked any "life" and the prawn tacos were a rip off The service was ok but definitely won't be back

Perfect to spend a day on a nice, clean beach, Zamas offers accommodations in cabanas both on the beach and in the back manicured jungle. The very busy restaurant is located on a terrace overlooking the beach that is protected by rocks at both ends looking almost like a little cove. Tables, chairs and decorations are colorful, cheerful and very... More

This place deserves 5 stars even though the beach here is really rocky. My girlfriend and I walked in and sat on the beach chairs. They were able to serve us here which is very generous since all signs say guests only. The food here was the best food I've had in tulum. You get more bang for your buck.... More

You can't beat the location and services at Zamas. My husband (Michael) and I enjoyed two amazing early morning breakfasts at Zamas and they were the perfect beginnings to amazing days in and around Tulum. The breakfast was amazing! We enjoyed omelettes with local ingredients, pancakes, fresh coconut waters (straight from the nuts), "fancy" toast with avocados and goat cheese,... More

We did not stay at the hotel. We stopped here to eat before we did our snorkling and it was a great pit stop not only was the food great but the ocean and beach views here really heightened the experience and make your meal so much better.

I think we got a bit lucky as we hadn't read any reviews, didn't know how popular this place is, and just walked into Zamas on an off-chance hoping we could get an early dinner. Initially, this was mostly because it looks pretty cool from the outside and it has its own parking. We got a great table with a... More

We came to Zamas based on reading other past TripAdvisor recommendations, and we were not disappointed. Our lunch and drinks were all way above-average, and the view on watching diving pelicans as we dined was nice entertainment. We would definitely come back again on our next visit to Tulum!
