‘Zamma’ was the original Mayan name for the city of Tulum, which meant ‘new beginning’. So it’s hardly surprising that those looking to recharge their mind, rejuvenate their body, and replenish their soul, choose Tulum and Zamas Hotel as their dream vacation spot.
Located right on the sugary white beach amongst the slender coconut palm trees, Zamas is a small beachfront cabana hotel, which features 8 very private beach bungalows.
Each bungalow looks just like a romantic Caribbean getaway you would want to stay in with a thatch roof over your head and smooth, cool tiled floors under your feet. Comfortable beds and colorfully-tiled private bathrooms guarantee you’ll always start your morning on the right foot. And, of course, a large Caribbean porch with Mexican hamacas (hammocks) softly swaying in the sea breeze is a great way to kick off your vacationing days.
Bottom line is: You can’t go wrong with Zamas beach bungalows, whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a fun trip with a couple of friends, or a memorable family vacation.
Especially because each cabana is different in terms of size, layout, and occupancy (see the amenities section below for more details). In fact, Zamas hotel even includes a couple of 2-story Casas, which are spacious enough to accommodate up to 6 people. The Zamas Casas are only separated by a small road from the beach. Although, the elevated, unobstructed beach and ocean views from the second floor of the Casas are definitely worthy of a snapshot.
Zamas’ rustic chic ambiance and laid-back hammock culture is also combined with a strategically ideal location. First, you have a famous Zama’s Que Fresco open-air beach restaurant just 100 meters away. So, whenever you have cravings for ‘muy fuerte’ margaritas, wood fired pizza, or deliciously fresh seafood, you won’t have to look far. This is one of our favorite spots on Tulum beach, whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! This is also one of the great spots for snorkeling. On the days when the water is calm, make sure that you’ll check out the shipwreck (just 50 meters off Tulum’s shore) and plenty of colorful fish that live there.
Also, be sure to visit the Mayan Ruins of Tulum, Coba ruins, the Pueblo of Tulum, and mystic freshwater cenotes. Just down the beach road is the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve, with its pristine mangrove estuaries and abundant wildlife.

#10 is a second floor cabana, 1 queen and 1 double bed, spacious, cool tile in huge bathroom, palapa (grass) roof, very cool ambience, doors do not lock from inside (feels a little insecure, could use deadbolts inside) padlock on outside, so keep valuables in safe in the room, no outlets in the room but plenty at restaurant nearby, can watch the sun rise from the bed, huge front porch with 2 hammocks, very clean, no AC ( went in January, so comfortable, cool at night)

Zamas web site is very decieving. You would never know that it sits directly on the busiest street that runs along the beach. It is not quiet at all. They have music everynight and the venue changes - so if you like salsa one night, great, but the next night is tech jazz, or reggae you are in for a very uncomfortable night. The owner is RUDE, CONFRONTATIONAL, basically a jerk. There is no services here other than the maid staff who will clean your room down to the very last grain of sand. The beach is hardly a beach and to the north and south are much better beaches for swimming and walking. Save you money and stay to the north or south of Zamas, trust me you'll be glad you did.

Great place, the food at the restaurant was amazing. My wife and I loved the beach, it was small and quiet. The bed was comfortable, the one downfall was the shower... a little too rustic for us. But otherwise an amazing place.

We had a great time - very nice people and a beautiful location. We needed a place for 5 people as we have 3 children and the size was perfect. We were there for 5 days and it would have been nice to have a coffee maker and small fridge to avoid needing to go out for everything.

Zamas staff were friendly, professional and eager to ensure my happiness. We quite enjoyed our stay with them. My only two complaints are the beach, we did not swim there as there were too many rocks, also the proximity to the road and the endless traffic diminished this properties value.

Zamas is a well run, incredibly care for small resort. The grounds crew take pride in their work keeping the beach and grounds spotless. The staff always has a smile and the pride the owner has is evident in each and every detail from plenty of beach side seating to the candles at turndown and tuck in each night.
