Got Back from Zamas on the 9th, Choose to go to Tulum due to the beautiful beaches and cabanas. Zamas isn't bad but I would definately recommend staying at any hotel south of Zamas. There is an elevated road that runs directly behind the small beach front cabanas that is fairly busy through out the day with vehicles.
We would actually leave the Zamas beach during the day and hang out at the beaches to the south because they were much more beautiful and a lot bigger! Zamas makes a vast majority of their $ from the restaurant and heavily promotes their nightly music which is fun to listen to under the stars. The downside with a restaurant this size on a small beach is during the day you are trying to relax; you always feel like you are being watched by the many people eating at the restaurant.
They are in the process of resurfacing the road to the south. Leading down to the Sian Ka Biosphere so it is in great condition and very easy driving!!
Bottom line, stay at a hotel to the south you will find it will be much more relaxing and the paradise you are envisioning!
