After a month traveling across Mexico and staying mainly in hostel we came to Tulum to end our trip on the beach for a week of relaxation. After a nights sleep we started scouting for anything else as Zazil Kin gives that feeling of sleeze. The woman who owns it is a slum lord. She keeps a security guard around...

This place is great for young people, especially as a stop during a backpacking trip. Positives: right on the beach, very 'primal' feel that makes you feel close to nature (something you would not get in a hotel), your own cabana with mosquito net beds, coconut trees everywhere (you can ask the staff to break the coconuts for you!), mellow...

I travelled throughot Mexico and found the most pleasant, friendly people everywhere. EXCEPT Zazil Kin! The first thing that you meet there is an aggressive, smirking, ignorant [--] of a receptionist! Also, the place is largely overpriced. Only thing I can say is: never again and hope you won't do the same mistake as I did.

The only thing going for this hotel is its location on the beach, although there are about 50 other places you can stay along this same stretch of beach - I would suggest you try one of the others. Without wanting to bore you with an essay: *Staff - rude, unhelpful, unfriendly *Price - ridiculous & not the low prices...

We have stayed in these cabanas (Cabana Chetumal) for 2 nights and really loved it! The beach is beautiful and very closeby. The cabana provides the basics: a bed, a musquito net and a fan which you can use in the evening and part of the night when electricity is provided. We didn't need the fan at all. Just open...

I stayed here just before peak time in mid-December. I was a little worried based on what Lonely Planet (LP) was saying that: (1) this place is always packed and (2) that this is THE place to stay in Tulum. LP was right on the first one but not necessarily on the second point. All of the beachfront of Tulum...

Unbeatable location right amidst white sand dunes, only 10 minutes from the Tulum Ruins. The cabanas are rustic- but secure with locks, cement floors and cement fill. Definitely not a glamourous stay- beds are spartan (they have mosquito net) and there are no facilities in the cabanas. Shared bathrooms are clean as are shared showers (cold water only but considering...

We arrived to tulum without having a place to stay. A taxi driver approached us and reccomended this place. He seem nice so we accepted that he took us there. To begin with, the reception guy was rude and unfriendly. He told us about the shared bathrooms and gave us the keys, in a very rude manner. We see the...

We recently spent one night at Cabanas Zazilkin near Tulum. Our stay was supposed to be for 3 nights but we left after one night. First of all however I'll start with the positives. The beach there is the most beautiful we saw on a coast that has some very stunning beaches. The sand is so white that it was...

We stayed here April 2006. Six in our party. 2 Seniors (79 and 83) and 2 40+ adults and 2 kids (6 & 12). We loved this place! We stayed in the building (which we had to ourselves) rather than the cabanas. We had a very clean, lovely room with a loft (containing 3 double beds total). The beach and...
