I have stayed at Zullymar 3 times in the past 3 years. Each time my stay was at least a week. The location is right in the center of everything and only a 2 minute walk to the beach. It's not right on the beach, but might as well be, just cross the two lane road and before you know it you'll be walking on sand.
There are a number of options for rooms. So use your best judgement with the descriptions they give of these rooms and the price. If you pay for the cheapest, don't go in thinking you're getting some 4 star resort. The rooms are very simple, they include the bare essentials and it's all you really need. Beds, night stand, fan, lights, fridge, tv, shelves/closet, and a basic bathroom. The fridge is great to have, we just go to the local grocery store to purchase beverages, snacks, and sandwich supplies. All great for taking to the beach. I believe all of the rooms have a patio with patio chairs and a table. I always request a poolside room. The pool is awesome, with lounge chairs, outdoor shower and an area for bbqing (complete with bbq). I also love the layout of Zullymar, there is room for parking. A security guard is there in the PM through the early morning manning the entrance/exit. I really like this aspect because I feel safe coming and going and have had first hand experience about security not letting random people onto the premise.
Never had i had problems with staff, as a matter of fact I think they are great! Some of the front desk staff may not speak the best English, but you are in Costa Rica so learn some basic Spanish before you arrive! Gaby the owner and her husband are wonderful, her email correspondence is fantastic. Contact her with any questions prior to booking and/or arriving at Zullymar.
