This place was excellent! It was the cleanest hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. Having your own little home with kitchen is great. Rotem is a great guy and made sure we were very well taken care of. Pool was nice, beach was nicer, and this was the nicest place we stayed at in Costa Rica. Will hopefully return someday.

We had a great time at the Zula Inn! The rooms were super clean and very comfortable. It was like having your own home down there with a kitchen and an outdoor patio. We loved the pool/bar area as well and the whole place was surrounded by plants and green and looked beautiful. Rotem was super helpful in helping us get to the Zula and then getting us taxis/boogie boards/anything else we needed.

Thanks so much for making our stay so enjoyable and I definitely recommend this place to others!

Just spent several nights here and it was wonderful!

Owned by nice brothers, well-kept, clean, quiet, comfortable. Everything was great!

Go to their cafe in town for the best food in Santa Teresa as well.

This is not a fancy place but I wasn't expecting one. When we arrived I wasn't excited but the place grew on me over the 3 days we spent there. The kitchen is very basic, but it had enough to make breakfast and lunch for our family. The only thing missing that we would have liked was a blender to make smoothies. Yes there were some bugs, but nothing excessive. This is a tropical country, bugs are just part of the experience. The shower didn't have hot water but like it's so hot out that the cold/lukewarm water is all you need. The pool is very nice, my younger son swam everyday. I only met one of the owners, Avi, he was helpful and charming. He even gave us a ride back to the hotel one night when we were dining at their restaurant and an intense storm hit. We would definitely go back.

Just returned from spending 8 nights at the Zula Inn. What a great place. I felt like I was staying in my own home (with daily maid service). The pool/bar area were so comfortable and the grounds are beautiful..full of flowers. Avi and Rotem (the owners) were there to help us with everything we needed: surf boards, ATVs, restaurants. I am planning to go back as soon as possible.
