As a U.S. Soldier who recently returned from a combat deployment I hoped to spend my R&R at 1) a comfortable hotel 2) along a gorgeous beach 3) surrounded by beautiful people, you know those things you don't find while serving a tour in Afghanistan ;) My buddy and I found what we had hoped for at Hotel Zapata!
Aside from other things you might find at other hotels along the Boca Chica Beach what you likely won't find is the integrity of Zapata's entire staff!!! After eating breakfast on Sunday morning, one of the staff members (Jose) brought my iPhone to my room which I apparently left on the breakfast table near the lobby area! After Jose discovered I was hungover from the night before he offered to mix some lemon juice and plenty of salt into a shot that actually did assist me to recover. Anyway, Israel and Mario were just as polite and helpful while maintaining daily operations in the lobby and providing security to the hotel each day and night. The owner, Roberto, even fulfilled my request for internet access, himself, in the middle of the night. As you might tell from this post I wasn't the "model" guest I'm sure Hotel Zapata is used to but was respected and felt appreciated just the same!
Roberto, you and your entire staff are awesome (even the diligence and integrity of the maids who paid attention to the smallest details)!!!
