We stayed at Zombie Cucumber for a week, and enjoyed quite a lot. Got a nice discount for the long stay (bargaining before booking is very advisable). The pool is nice, the room (we got a double room overlooking the pool) is recently built and the owners help a lot with excursions or recommending things to do. The restaurant is very, VERY good, and when you get to know other neighbouring places to eat, you realise the price is also fair.
Only two things bothered us in an otherwise very enjoyable week: 1. the room cleaners could do a much better job. A couple of times I had to point at cobwebs and dirt that they hadn't seen/cleaned in the room. 2. The owners like to have fun, and sometimes they loudly entertain guests at the restaurant until late in the evening. A couple of nights we had to kill time reading until the noise level went down.
