My wife and I stayed at Zamas for 3 nights before heading to a resort for a wedding. Zamas is very different than the resorts in the area. While resorts have great service, you are lost in the shuffle with hundreds of other guests. This is not the case at Zamas. At Zamas the staff remembers you, offers to assist you with anything you need, asks how you slept and if you are happy with your room. The food at Zamas was better than the food at the resort we stayed at. The area of Tulum is beautiful. The cabañas are quaint and fun.
A word to people that read these reviews and worry too much. You will be bit by mosquitos. It is not Zamas's fault. The area of Tulum has a ton of mosquitos so just bring really good repellant and be mindful. Also, there is seaweed on the beach. This is also not Zamas's fault. Every beach we visited was lined with seaweed, and the beach at the resort we visited had may more than Zamas.
Zamas is affordable, fun, eco-friendly and located in a great area. There are so many places to explore in the area that we could have stayed at another week or two and not been bored. If you don't want to explore you can always drink beer and tequila in the bar. Or if things turn out for you like they did for us, and there are thunder storms everyday, you can go buy candles next door, or borrow some from Zamas, and wait for the power to go out.
Our trip was fun and romantic and we can thank Zamas for that. Going to the all inclusive resort was a bummer and it ended up ruining our trip. If we would have stayed at Zamas the whole time we would have had a way better trip.
Thank you Erica, Jamie and the rest of the Zamas staff for the great accommodations and great food.
