Had a great time staying at Zula Inn. We were traveling with two small kids, ages 3 and 1. It was the perfect place for us. The pool was great, nice little shallow area for the kids to splash around in. It's a kind of place where you check in and just relax. Any place with an honor bar is...

My husband and I stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute of it! The bungalow was perfect; small kitchen, working AC, and a hammock.

I was a little nervous when I advised the owner we would not be checking in, but he was quite gracious about it. We had booked through booking.com. We booked a two-bedroom bungalow which was more of a one-bedroom with a bed in the large living area. We did not stay after finding a large hole in the back door...
