We've been back from honeymoon for a week now, and still wishing we were back at the Z hotel. We stayed at the very beginning of the season, so the hotel had a quiet, exclusive feel to it. We chose the Z, as we prefer botique, unique hotels over large chain hotels, and we are so SO glad we chose the Z hotel.
The pool area was stunning - we didnt want to read, as we felt like we should be admiring the view the whole time!
We stayed in one of the beach front cottages - WOW! Worth the extra - we watched the sunset from our huge private balcony and fell asleep to the sound of the waves evreynight. The suite was massive, and spotlessly cleaned everyday.
Breakfasts were served until 10:30 - great if you fancy a lie-in, and the choice was huge! I particularly enjoyed nutella on pancakes with the freshest fruit I have ever tasted.
We ate in the cinamon bar a few times - the food was delicious and reasonable. We only ate in the Saruche restaruant once, but the food and service was impecable - and what a setting! The staff were friendly, gracious and couldn't be more helpful. They really make it - you can have a supurb building with rude staff, and it can ruin a place - not so here - everything was perfect!
We cannot recommend this hotel enough - just paradise!
