A truly magical location on the cliffs above the Pacific. There are only five rooms, each with a dramatic view of the ocean. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which is the closest to the shore and has a semi-circular deck and wraparound windowed doors which can be opened for maximum views, wind, and wave sounds. One walks up and...

I've been traveling around the world hunting for the best ocean views, best infinity pools, quaintest spots... and the ZOA Hotel has become a new favorite. Not only is the location spectacular, the views amazing, the rooms comfortable and private... the staff are one of a kind spectacular. I spoke directly with the owner when arranging my stay and she...

My wife and I just returned from 4 nights at Zoa Hotel. We are well travelled, and found Zoa a great find...beautiful boutique hotel with great service and food.

We had booked for only 2 nights, but extended to 4. The hotel has only 5 or maybe 7 cabana rooms so is intimate & personal. We booked the honeymoon suite which had an ocean view at tree level, with birds landing in the tree at the edge of the wooden balcony (perfect for an evening beer). The room (just...

This is a small boutique hotel in a small place at the pacific coast named Mazunte. There are only a few bungalows with excellent junior suites with an magnificent view over the landscape. The staff let you feel as home the whole stay there. Marcos the manager helps you with all problems you have and Carlos the chef is preparing...

If you want to jet ski, parasail, watch television, get splashed on by kids in the pool....go someplace else. If you want to relax, enjoy breathtaking views, fall asleep in a hammock, lay on the beach, decompress, be somewhere where nobody can find you...this is the place. We had cabana #1, with beautiful views, that made us never want to...

Our trip to Zoa had very different expectation of the place. It turned out to be a piece of heaven on earth. The personalized service and fresh seafood every day for our meals was outstanding! The views are like postcards' and watching occasional whales swim below us from our balcony was amazing. 50 minutes taxi ride from Huatulco airport.

First off, this place is magical. The staff make it even better. Marcos (the manager) and Carlos (the head chef) were both very polite and accommodating. The pool area and dining area are both matchless. The only bummer is that the bottom access to the "beach area" was closed off because of the strong waves, but Marcos offered to take...

Facilities in the rooms and public areas are really cool, pool is simoly beautiful. The staff are all very kind and professional. Special mention to the chef: he really knows how to cook fish and seafood. I totally reccommend this place to chill and relax (no under 16 allowed)

Zoa is the kind of hotel that once you check in you don't want to check out ever ! It is a beautifully designed , small , only five room hotel . We just stayed here one night in a beautiful palapa facing the sea with a wonderful view. The hotel is very elegant , expensive but worth every penny...
