Loved everything about it. Staff, location, the town, the vibe. I would love to go back! One big but, the hotel doesn't have many beach beds and like any other hotel they are first come first served. The problem is that the hotel is very popular even among locals and they like to come in in groups and they take...

It was a spur of the moment trip and well worth it. We stayed in number 9, at the top. We did not have a beach view but could hear the waves thrashing on the rock formations. The room was very private with an outdoor shower. We also had our private terrace and garden with a sofa and hammock ....

Love the hotel and location. The staff was also great and always helpful. One big problem, there are not enough beach beds. Its a popular spot even among locals. Locals like to come in groups and take 3-4 beds at a time. Even tho they consume drinks and food from the restaurant the hotel needs to figure out a better...

For me the beach cabins were a treat. I had No 3 which is set back from the beach and surrounded by greenery. You still get a beach view between cabins 1 and 2. Restaurant is ok. On the expensive side for the area but still cheap. Easy to walk along the beach to cheaper places. Setting is just amazing....

I loved the yoga class and I had a massage which was amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend you get a room that is not above the kitchen (it was boiling hot in the room already). The staff could use some service training as we didnt get service in the pool area or on the beach.. and that´s a must. Make...

I heard so many stories about the wonderful paradise of Zipolite but never got a chance to go; finally this year I made it there and before the trip I was a little wary as I was wondering if the place would really stand to its reputation. We were a group of four and when researching about places to stay...

We found this on the internet, lucky us! It was truly pure delight. We kept finding new things about it we loved. We could literally roll out of bed onto the beach or fall asleep under the full moon, clear sky & nearly bugless night, on one of their beach beds, lit by candle light, near the huge rock they...

We loved the location, and the cabanas were all gorgeous. Loved the laid back vibe and the front desk staff were super friendly and helpful. There was a bit of a mix-up with our room (we had booked a room with 2 beds - our only requirement since we were travelling with our child, but there was a double booking...

This is comfortable and well run hotel. Our room had everything we could hope for - a large balcony with hammock and daybed, air-conditioning or fan, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, and even hot water which is not that common in this area. They also take VISA which is also unusual. We booked a garden room by the pool which was...

Fantastic spot tucked away in the corner of the beautiful Zipolite beach, perpetually underscored with the sound of crashing waves. Wide range of room types to choose from based on your travel preference, from small huts to the two-story penthouse. I stayed in cabana 19, which is currently the only room with air conditioning, and has a private balcony with...
