They will not accommodate any of your needs, they won’t give my family any voucher for credit since we had a passport issue and couldn’t meet out date! We were only looking for some consideration but nada! Im sure they will lose more $$$ with these tactics than working with guest!

The location is fantastic with breathtaking views over the ocean. The hotel is also walking distance from many restaurants and bars. Our room was a delight. We had plenty of privacy and enjoyed several breakfasts taking in the majestic view from our balcony. Salomon is a superb host. I would highly recommend a visit to anyone!

Zoa is a magical place perched atop a beautifully landscaped hillside with unobstructed ocean views & big open skies. It's a serene spot for whale watching, stargazing, and decompressing. The hotel is secluded yet within walking distance to the beach towns of Mazunte and San Agustinillo. This is the 2nd time my husband and I have stayed at Zoa in #5. We love the privacy and the surrounding gardens. Our room was always tidy with a fully stocked mini-bar and mezcal. When we weren't commandeering the poolside couches, we lounged on our private terrace enjoying the daily bird activity, sunsets, and distant sounds of music and laughter. The heated infinity pool is beautiful and there are several different levels where you can relax in a hammock or next to the ocean on some loungers. Solomon, Paco, chef de cuisine, and everyone at Zoa are what make Zoa truly special and keep us returning. Their hospitality, attentiveness, and easy-going nature add to the chill factor, which is precisely what I crave when escaping daily life. The food at Zoa is some of the best on the Oaxacan coast. And when we wanted to eat elsewhere, Solomon recommended several great restaurants.

Stunning hotel, with a beautiful pool set in landscaped gardens on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It’s very well-located, in between two of the nicest beaches in this part of Oaxaca - Mazunte and San Agustinillo. Both are easily walkable (or swimmable, from the tiny little beach at the bottom of the hotel). The hotel is intimate with only a few bedrooms, which are large with beautiful views. The food and service were excellent, and the hotel is well-managed. We would definitely stay here again.

Staying at Zoa hotel was a wonderful experience. The rooms have incredible views, the food amazing but it was really about the feeling you get while you are there. It’s hard to describe….They have created a magical space. The manager,Salomon, and his staff are really incredible. You want for absolutely nothing! You are totally pampered and with only 7 casita’s, you feel like you are at your own private resort. We can’t say enough good things! Thank you to the entire staff for making our holiday so lovely!

NO beach access!! Room full of ants. Filthy swimming pool. Our room flooded. The AC which is above the bed leaks so you are woken up by drops of water on your head… No pressure in the cold water in the shower. The fan in the room was inverted. The air got pulled up instead of blowing air in the room. Sadly, the manager Samuel never made an attempt to apologize or mend anything ( but the leak in the room) I must say that the food and employees are amazing!!

If your like me and crave a slice of heaven when you travel for leisure then welcome to Zoa! Beautiful property....amazing ATTENTIVE service and great food! Our villa was cabana 1 and we love it ( we are still here debating the date of our next visit here.) I actually live in Puerto Vallarta and I love living there so when I travel it must be exceptional and this has ticked all the boxes for me. Zero complaints! I love the layout. I love the thoughtful spaces located all throughout the property. I actually like that the beach is next to the property as it encourages you to see the area a bit. Not to mention, the nearby beach is gorgeous. No T.V which is a plus for me. However good WiFi is a plus for work. I am a writer- and geology lover amongst other things and to sit by the sea and hear the conversation of the waves while doing a bit of work is just incredible. Come here solo or with a partner and just enjoy the views, the peace and the overall positivity that pours from the heart of the people here. I’m definitely returning!

The hotel is in one of the best locations, not only because of the view, but also it is near two main beaches: San Agustinillo and Mazunte. 5 reasons of the 5 stars: -Location -Friendly staff (they are always attentive) -facilities (safe and clean) -Services (Book a massage with their therapist) -Food quality *The only thing they should add is to accept AMEX :)

There are only 7 rooms here each freestanding. All have beautiful ocean views, tastefully designed We stayed in a 2 floor casita with private pool. Was stunning although first floor has fan but no a/c. Great restaurant on premises. We had breakfast included which was excellent. Infinity pool overlooking ocean. Salomon gave us his # when we arrived and took care of everything for us: called taxis, even had yoga mat delivered to our room at 7:45am! Great location. Can walk to Mazunte and San Augustinillo. If you want to visit the chill towns and stay somewhere beautiful this for you.

Amazing Hotel, Excellent Quality. Solomon (Shlomo) was an excellent host/manager - Zoa is a beautiful place to stay in nature. Lots of Activities can be arranged, beds are comfortable. Meals are excellent and most importantly fresh. We had a couple of meals in town but decided the food was way better in the hotel restaraunt. So many places to lounge and sunbathe, sit it in hammocks and take in the day. Thank you again to the great staff. Lastly this place is as good as a 5 star hotel, much better than some 5 stars I have actually stayed in. Daniel and Liora
