I like quirky places but would have enjoyed this room a lot more for say $30/night opposed to the $76 I paid. Booked a double king beach front room from Expedia and when we showed up they led me to a double twin room in the back above where the workers live. Sometimes I think this is just what happens...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Zulum for two nights. We came at the prefect time, early November, and experienced a beautiful beach and cooler temps at night. The staff was some of the most friendly group of people we met in Mexico. When we had lost our rental car keys and were checked out of the hotel, they... More

At that point there was no more availability for any good hotels on the beach in Tulum. I had to scramble and I had to re-book my whole trip. I book more than 25 hotels a year and Zulum is the first one to ask me to cancel.

For 67.00 a night it was ok, the staff was really nice. The room don't have any amenities and there is a short half wall dividing the toilet from the room. The shower is exactly in the opening of the non-wall and there are no door. Romantic yes, unless you are staying with a friend. Also, the water you shower... More

I stayed with from friends at La Luna Resort and for 7 days and nights saw and heard a heartbreaking cry from the donkey tied to a tree at Zulum Resort next door. Our stay was amazing at La Luna. But we were awakened nightly and reminded constantly of the plight and neglect of this poor animal next door. Please... More

I stayed in Zulum for 4 nights with my girlfriend and it was great. Everything was perfect: the beach is wonderful, the room is lovely and the service is very kind. If you want peace and tranquility, you can choose Zulum to be your piece of heaven in earth.

Very nice place, we only stayed there for one night and at first we were a little unsure because of the reviews we've read here, but it was our best option since we had a reservation for the second day of our trip already. We got there on bikes we rented at another hotel, Azulik, even though one of the... More

I had the big displeasure of hearing the loud, pointless beating electronic house music blasting out of Zulum's bar EVERY day as it was positioned next to the cabana I was staying in. The whole of Tulum beach is tranquil paradise apart from the area ruined by this horrific place. I kindly asked the owner to turn it down. He... More

I really wish I had taken one look at this place and turned around, but colleague had picked it and I didn't really want to make a big deal out of it. There were a number of things that were poorly thought out, badly designed or just plain cheap. - Hanging beds - seems nice in theory, but they moved... More

Great beaches in Boca Paila but our stay was shadowed by a very unconfotable hotel, the cabañas are built in a certain way that no air or breeze can ever pass through and without AC its a living hell, be prepared to spend a sleepless night and to quarell with the managers.
