Tasty, solid, great for kids

What's not to love about a place with good food where your wild toddlers can play in the sand while you eat?

We did not stay here, but we make a point to eat here every time we visit. Each time it's about 3/4 of the way through our stay in Mexico and it seems we're missing some good-old-fashioned greasy American food and Zamas' Danny Burger hits the spot. Seriously, I don't know if it's the fact that we've been eating tacos... More

We enjoyed Coco Loco and mexican beer at Zamas. We sat on the beach and had snacks and drinks. Great Wait Staff, beautiful view.

As has been mentioned by other trip advisors, there's no booze in the margaritas... The place has an incredible setting, and there was a great band but geez, there seems to be no dress code, (or the restaurant didn't care), flabby shirtless diners does not make for good digestion. And the food was plain and uninspired. Stick with the restaurants... More

stopped here mainly because they had a small parking lot across the street, so that was a bonus right from the start. (Tulum beach road is very narrow with very few parking spots) Beautiful ocean front location,very colourful cheerful tables and chairs. My friend and i shared the best nachos i've had in ages! If i had more time i... More

What a discovery! We have now found anther "favorite place" during our annual trip to Akumal. Besides the spectacular ocean front location, this beach side restaurant has really good food. The grouper sandwich is great for lunch as well as the queso and poblano tacos. All dishes at our table were of high quality, something you rarely see at a... More

We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at this restaurant. The view is the sole attraction of this restaurant with both open and covered tables with amazing views. The service always starts out strong but then tapers off so you have to periodically flag a waiter (whether the restaurant is busy or not). The menu is varied enough but very expensive... More

This is so beautiful of a place! I loved the location and the rooms... so romantic! I was able to have room in the back corner with an amazing view of the ocean. I loved the corners and how private it was all at!
