I don't usually write reviews, but when reading some for this past trip to Tulum with my girlfriend we were a little thrown away by the mixed reviews of the place that I decided to add our point of view: This place should be considered an option for all of you who want t enjoy everything Tulum and the Riviera...

I feel like many of these reviews are obvious. Don't go rustic if you want to be on your laptop or phone the whole time. Can't anyone just put their gadgets away? That's the whole point of a vacation. Anyway, when we stayed last year, I didn't even really look to see if we had any outlets, cause you know,... More

Staff was terrible. Cabanas where rustic but that's what we where looking for. Don't bring ANY food at your cabana. Even if we hanged food on the wall - in the morning a trail of ants lead straight up to it. A hint: buy Springles and hide your food in there or in any other sealable container. Don't leave any...

I traveled to tulum early December with a friend. We were recommended this place by some guy who can only be described as a moronic clown. After paying 60 US dollars for one night we were taken to our cabana.This place was unquestionably the most disgusting ses pit I have ever stayed in. Not only were the amenities like something...

I got a great time in a nice cabin. They have many cabins but not all of them are as good as others. Just need to check up the ones available. I got a good deal. We got a fan, shared bath and toilett. Just let you know they have a bar and they can be noisy at night, but... More

We stayed in zazil kin in middle of september. The room wit AC and private bathroom was very expensive. The AC works only at night. The room was clean and the bathroom ok for mexican standard but the restaurant was not open during the 2days we stayed there so we had to look for restaurants in other hotels/cabanas at the... More

Cabanas Zazil-kin is ideally located in the beach area of Tulum. It has its own access to a beautiful beach with boats going snorkelling on the reef nearby. However when we checked in we were surprised to find frogs in our bathroom. A few hours later one of the frogs was gone but there was a snake above the toilets... More

There was a lot of problems with the wifi. There is not wifi in the rooms, you need to go to the hot spot. The restaurant wasn't very good. The beds were terrible. There was not aircondition or anything in the rooms. Compared to what it was, it is extremely pricy!
