The only problem with the Zen is how far it is from the beaches. But, we walked it a few times and got it down to about 15 minutes maximum walk to the main beaches once we knew the way.
The hotel itself feels as if it has been done up and modernised quite recently, the room which we had was in the annex 310, and it was clean, the furniture simple and effective, the bathroom all working well with a powerful shower.
