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

Special thanks to chef Carlos and his team and waiters for wonderful meals. Solomon was hands on all day and night making sure we had all we desired. I've been to private islands in the Indian Ocean ($1000 a night) and to 50 cent hotels in many third world spots. No where did we enjoy ourselves more. Thanks to all who welcomed our basset hound, Pepe. Recommended highly.

Awesome place. Rooms were very comfy with gorgeous patios over looking the ocean. The staff is terrific and super friendly. This is definitely the nicest hotel in Mazunte. The pool is great and so is the hammock area on the side of the cliff.
