I promised that I would write this review, so here you go Rotem! The Zula is owned and operated by Avi & Rotem, two brothers that were characters. I enjoyed the way they do business and how they treat customers, very easy to work with. They were both also very helpful in recommending items of interest. The bungalows are clean,... More

I stayed nine days at Zula and found it perfect for my needs. It is run by two brothers who take pride in their inn and are concerned with their customers whole stay. I stayed in a bungalow which I was most comfortable. The staff was professional and courteous and looking to help out with the stay. The courtyard with... More

ZulaInn apartments are a small and friendly residence a short (5-10 minute) walk from the beach. Each villa is comfortable, with good air conditioning and a communal pool. The staff were very friendly and accommodating however we didn't have hot water nor did the wifi work inside the villa.

We had some really nice days at Zula Inn. The Zula Inn is located 1km away from the main crossing, coming from Cobano. So the place is silent and good to reach. The bungalow's all have AC and fan's :-) And we loved the really nice Pool. Just a breakfast offering is missing at the resort.

We have just left after just 4 nights here and highly recommend it. Avi is extremely welcoming and really made us feel at home. The bungalows are fine and pool is nice. We looked at a few places in Santa Teresa after the 1st place we booked into was not really suitable for us and are glad we chose Zula... More

We ( 26 year old couple ) stayed here 3 nights as we made our way up the coast. Awesome place to stay. The bungalows were beautiful and really modern. Kitchen was nice to have. Pool area was very clean and any place that has a honour bar is a friendly place to stay in my eyes. The owners set... More

We stayed 3 weeks at the ZulaInn and we really liked it! Our plan was to stay for 2 weeks, but we decided to stay one week more. Clean rooms, enough space, friendly people and a great pool area. Our kids loved the place very much, they learnt to swim in the pool... We will come back (if ever possible)!

I have a little different take on the Zula Inn than my city girl cousin Margaret M (see review below). I really liked the place overall and was perfectly content with the service which I thought was appropriate to the location on the beach at the end of a five mile dirt road. (Why would a surfer move to a... More
