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

Stayed at Zula Inn for almost 2 weeks while in Santa Teresa and loved it! As a woman traveling alone, I always felt safe and comfortable there. The bungalow was clean and bright with big windows and a small kitchen perfect for cooking simple meals. The spacious shower and bathroom are especially nice too and I loved the outdoor shower....

The place was clean, however no hot water and we asked for two beds not a futon and a bed. Rotten was nice as well as his brother, Ali the proprietors, but where never around when needed, always surfing...it was hot as hell which I wasn't used to but the facts are the facts. I was disappointed.

Margaret?! Sorry for you feeling disappointed - all I can remember from your visit was your big smiles and warm words... i guess one in heart and one in mouth. You know what's funny - you never complained about anything, so please understand me if i didn't expect that review - wish you all the best and thanks for giving... More

If there's a better place to stay in Santa Teresa, do let us know. Zula Inn had the lot for us to enjoy a three-week crash-out amid its beautifully-kept tropical garden. Highlights (many) included enjoying provided coffee on the bungalow verandah in the morning, cooling dips in the pool, reading books while rocking in a hammock at night, taking photos... More

Zula in was great value, the owners are fantastic hosts. Its like staying at their house. We wanted some nice Tea, so they picked up Twining when they were in SAn Jose. Nothing was too much trouble, easy to cook in the room, plenty of space. great pool...everything you need for a great family holiday. Can't recommend them highly enough.
