Our stay was amazing. We stayed on the beach in a cabana. The room was small but perfect for the two of us. The only issue that I had was the evening hours, there was lots of traffic, head lights, music and noise. When sitting on the beach trying to enjoy the sky and peacefulness it's not possible before 10-11pm.... More

My stay at Zamas was beautiful, clean, easy going, and friendly. I honestly can't say enough about this place. The location is terrific and the oceanfront cabanas are more than worth the price. Hammocks on your porch and 50 feet between you and the coastline! The hotel restaurant serves excellent food and drinks, complete with ocean views. However, the best... More

Zamas was a little piece of paradise for our family in our recent Spring-Break trip in March 2014. We stayed in a two-queen-bed cabana across the 1 1/2 lane road from the restaurant and beach, right next to the dive shop. The view from the cabana porch was gorgeous. Every morning we awoke to the songs of birds and the... More

Zamas was the perfect fit for us! An amazing balance of sustainability, beauty, and comfort. Our cabana was spacious and beautiful (Jungle Cabana) with a huge terrace complete with lounging chairs and hammocks. The resident dive shop (Mexi Divers) and restaurant were both perfect compliments to the hotel. We spent many hours on the deck of the restaurant chatting with... More

I have been to Zamas many times, and recently took a friend and my two sons, 5 and 8. We had a ball! We stayed in a wonderful jungle cabana and loved it. The cabana had plenty of room for all of us, a huge bathroom, and a cool deck area where we could lounge in hammocks and watch the... More

We needed a break from the long winter and chose April to steal away to mexico with our two boys age 13 and 11. We were interested in a more "natural" environment without roughing it too much and this was the perfect retreat. We selected the top ocean view family Apartment on the jungle side so the music would not... More

Lovely beach location for fairly basic (no A/C) but clean etc facilities. We had a room over the road (30secs walk to beach) with private balcony and hammocks to chill out on. Beach is very cute and restaurant is a great setting for dinner. One thing to note: There is NO pool which was a disappointment as there are photos... More

We had the most incredible two weeks here and finally understood the meaning of relaxing. I do not have a bad word... More

I couldn't ask for more from this place, lovely staff, faultless service, clean and spacious rooms (not the usual beach huts), tasty food and beach location. The rooms were so beautiful and every night the cleaners turned down the sheets and the mossie nets- nice touch! The owner was also around a lot which was good to see. I really... More
