What do you look for in a hotel...? For me, safety first. The last thing you wanna happen to you is theft, right? The last thing you need on a vacation/trip is stolen passport/money phone etc', right? This is not gonna happen here. The hotel is super safe, they really put an effort on this issue and after a week's...

Great little spot set back a little from the main street so it's quiet but still close to the beach and easy to get anywhere that you'd want to go. The pool is key for staying refreshed during the day because it is HOT there! AC works well. There's a nice fridge stocked with beverages that you can help yourself...

Great place to experience Santa Teresa. Zula is located in a great location and set off the main road to avoid the dust created from the road. Only a very very short walk to the surf beach which was awesome for the morning surfs. The bungalows are well equipped and have a very handy kitchen to cook meals. The arrangement...

I just spent 6 weeks at Zula Inn. I came down to learn how to surf, do yoga, eat great food, relax, and reset. I was looking for a place that I could call home while there and Zula Inn was perfect. Rotem and Avi are brothers that own and run the place. They have 9 bungalows that surround a...

This was our first visit here and we were delighted with our stay. The grounds were just beautiful and it was fun hanging out at the pool and coffee bar chatting with the other guests. We loved having a kitchen with refrigerator in the room and with a short walk to a nearby grocery, we were able to prepare our...
