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... More

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... More

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. The staff went out of their way to meet our every need. Tamara was quick to respond to our numerous email inquiries before we arrived. Once we arrived, we learned... More

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. New, clean and with a very helpful staff, Zen makes you feel comfortable at the same time that respects your privacy. Breakfast is served in the rooms, at the time you... More

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... More

After a long drive up the cost from Montevideo in a rubbish little hire car we arrive at Zen not really knowing what to expect having booked the night before online in a hurry. To say we were thrilled is an understatement. We were only due to stay for one night, but ended up staying for three and then begrudgingly... More

We came here in the off season and it was a fine place to stay, but nothing that amazed us. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic and comfortable, with an efficiency kitchen and balcony with grill. The shower was a little space-ship like. It was cool in concept, but the water temperature was finicky. The...

The reason my overall rating is not a 4 or 5 is because of the quality of the hotel and the price was too high. I'm hesitant to say anything negative about the place, because I like the owner so much. However, I will be honest and pass along my review. I stayed at this place recently (Nov, 2011) with... More

Owned and operated by an Australian couple this small hotel is on a small road across from a very long sandy beach. The rooms are large, have nice kitchen and large picture windows facing the street, a couple of houses, the dunes and the ocean.
