Zula Inn was referred to my boyfriend and I about a year ago and we finally made it out from February 27-March13 and we can't wait to go back. It was super relaxing, everyone we met there was friendly, the villa was exactly what we needed for our stay. It was cozy, we had AC, the kitchen had everything we... More

I'm surprised at all the great reviews and I do believe many are from family and friends. I have travelled a lot and this property was very disappointing. The owner was rarely in his office, the pool area had broken chairs and loose rocks around the edges, the single bed is actually a futon with food trapped in the middle,... More

Zula Inn is a hidden gem in the growing chaos of Santa Teresa. Located 1-1.5 km from the crossroads and a 2 minute walk from the Pacific, it's a clean, peaceful, economic place to stay. The rooms come with a kitchenette, AC, and hot showers. The grounds are well maintained as is the pool. I've stayed here 1-2 X /... More

My family and I spent a week at Zula and I have to say it was such a great week! Zula is beautiful place. It is set back from the main road and only a short walk to the beach. The bungalows were spotless and the cleaning staff and groundskeeper did a great job assuring that our stay was nothing... More

We are a large group of 23 friends (7 of which are kids), and we had the best time at the Zula Inn! This is the perfect location in Santa Teresa, we were close to the beach, grocery stores and restaurants, we were able to walk everywhere. The owners do a great job of making everyone feel welcome and safe.... More

It was an amazing location (next to restaurants/the beach/convenience stores), beautiful & clean mini apartments, amazing private front porch attached to the bunaglows with tables&chairs&a hammock (staff that cleaned the rooms are so friendly, kind, and do a great job), pool/garden area was so relaxing and well kept, complimentary tea&coffee was a treat. The owners created a private, safe, tranquil... More

We found an absolute gem,it was really quiet and peaceful, the bungalows were comfortable, the bathroom immaculate and a daily cleaning service was provided for no extra charge. The gardens were so gorgeous and the pool was enjoyed by all, it was a perfect stay especially with a young child. Close to beach and yummy restaurants. The pool area was... More

Really nice owner, nothing was too much trouble. Very clean and peaceful. The pool bar was closed but we found a great Mexican restaurant across the road, highly recommend their jalapeño cocktails! Perfect for sunsets. Pool was lovely, but pool side furniture probably needs replacing to give this place a real 'wow'.
