This is a lovely place for a winter long weekend, very peaceful location and the seaview is quite anti-stressing. Breakfast is more than excellent with a lot of options and served in the room. Using the bikes on ride through the seaside is an excellent and healthy activity!

We only stayed for one night, we would've liked to stay for more. The sitting area in front of the fireplace outside was our favorite for talking and having "mate." The receptionist was really kind. Breakfast in the room was perfect!

We stayed in a room on the upper floor and it has a beautiful view of the ocean. Zen provides beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels with a wheeled cart for the beach that is right across the street. The ocean was too cold for swimming in April so I used the heated swimming pool instead. They have a nice... More

We liked our stay very much and they even washed our car for free. That was a nice bonus free of charge. The only thing i didn't like is the breakfast system. You should mark in the list what you want them to bring and you don't know the size of the dishes, so the first day we stayed a... More

Zen is a hotel close to the beach, and about 2km from downtown. Very good customer service. They try to make your accomodation as special as possible. They have movies and bikes for you to borrow, also all the items for the beach. The rooms have a small terrace with bbq. During the evenings, they turn on the fireplace with... More

We found this place on tripadvisor and had high expectations arriving. We were not let down! The apartment hotel is right on the beach, you just cross a street and you're there.

This is a very good option in La Paloma. It is well designed for a beach hotel--meaning, common spaces/hallways are outside, so there is easy access to the beach. The staff is very nice (but speak minimal english. They were very patient with our Spanish skils). We appreciated the pre packed "beach buggies" and the use of cruiser bikes. Yes--the... More

The hotel has a bad cost/benefit relation. I found it extremely expensive for the quality of services it provides. It charges high end prices for a tacky décor, with cheap copies of design furniture, a mix of cold white lights and warmer yellow ones, and a small bathroom with a huge Jacuzzi taking most of the space. Furniture is piled... More

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
