Good service, good food, good ambiance, good views of the pool. What more do you need? We split the Zu Zu Burger and homemade chips. Cooked just like we asked for. Draft beer accompanied this burger quite well. Service was attentative but not overbearing. Enjoyed watching the World Cup from the bar area.

Stayed at the hotel for the 4th holiday weekend. Received a couple of drink coupons since our room wasn't ready so we had a couple drinks in the bar and watched some soccer. Good drinks and nice staff manning the bar. We came back later that evening for more drinks in the bar area and had a nice, relaxing time.... More

What a fun place for Happy Hour. The service is friendly and welcoming. We had wine on the patio and truly enjoyed it. They let you order from the Happy Hour menu anywhere in the bar, restaurant, or patio. Many restaurants have restrictions about that. We would go back.

Cafe Zuzu evokes the feel of the 50's in decor, but the food is strictly 21st century. Four friends went for a birthday breakfast and shared four entrees: short rib and butternut squash hash with poached eggs, mushroom cheddar omelet, and two orders of brioche French toast stuffed with a lemon infused cheese filling. Everything was delicious! The short ribs... More

Was looking for a brunch that wasn't a buffet and wasn't $40 a person..we found it. Food was great and so was the atmosphere. We had eggs Benidict, French toast, lox and bagels and a burger. All great! Avg price $13. Had Bloody Mary bar for $5. service a little slow but very friendly.
