We stayed at the Z hotel for 3 nights, and it met more than our expectations. It is a little expensive, but I thought the price was comparable considering the location and amenities hotel. It is the perfect size, just big enough for you to feel like you're in a small resort. The staff was really nice, epecially after you saw them multiple times in a couple of days. The room decor was perfect for us, contemporary and modern, with a balcony which we loved. There were enough chairs available which had a nice view by the pool, and also 2 canopy beds where you can be privately and read/sleep/or even watch tv! The buffer breakfast was good, but the food off the menu at the restaurants was just ok.
Each morning, it was so gorgeous to wake up to the bright blue waters. The hotel is located on a side of the island where I guess it's pretty common to get that view from other hotels as well. However, from what we heard/saw, not everyone had a beach area to lay out in, which this hotel did seem to have. Sure there are a lot of vendor boys out there, but I noticed they did not approach you if you were laying out in the hotel's private beach area.
