You know how you hope that when you book a place you so hope that it is as good as the photos you've seen on the website... Zamas exceeds expectations. We loved the location - it's own beach, plenty of loungers and hammocks, the lovely colourful cafe/restaurant for leisurely breakfasts, lunches and also dinners, the cabins and that basically you arrive and live in your flip flops and relax. The hotel staff are lovely and there were two excellent managers - one daytime and one in the evening who are very visible and approachable. One of our children needed to see a doctor and they were able to arrange for one to come to the hotel in half an hour. It is an environmentally conscious hotel which is reflected in its cooking on a wood fire, homemade bread and wood oven pizzas. Lots of choices on the menu and all good. We were lucky to enjoy a couple of dinners with visiting chefs from San Francisco which was a bonus! Mexidivers start their trips right from the beach so you can go diving or snorkelling at the reef or centotes. The hotel recommended a great place for yoga which was a 5 minute walk (Maya Tulum) as well as cenote's etc. Behind the hotel is a small strip with some places to eat and some stalls selling jewellery and other souvenirs so you have wander nearby. And I have to mention the music - Zamas has some great playlists (which was the first in our 3 weeks on the peninsula!) Tulum seems to be divided into one long strip of hotels right along the beach (just beyond Zamas) where you feel you are part of a long line of hotels). So Zamas, by being set apart, feels that bit more special. Thank you to everyone at Zamas!
