This place is wonderful and is a bargain. We stayed in casita #6 for 5 nights and enjoyed how quiet it was since it doesn't sit directly on the main road. Our A/C worked great at night when we used it and the wifi worked great too. The casita was clean and kept clean daily. The rancho area is beautiful...

We found Zula Inn through a couple of traveling friends we had made on our trip in Cost Rica.

Zula Inn is situated...

My group and I narrowed down our options in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa to a few hotels. When we arrived in the area, we decided to stay at Zula Inn due to its location and value. However, we would come back for several reasons: it is a good deal for the rooms, the pool is well-kept and necessary in the heat,...

I have stayed here for the past 7 years on my annual surf trip. It's quiet, clean, & secure. Rotim & Avi are two brothers who immigrated from Israel about 10 yrs ago. They own/operate the Inn and Zula restaurant. Each of them speak Hebrew, English, & Spanish well. I never worry about leaving a camera or computer in the...

We had never been to Costa Rica prior to our visit last March, so we didn't know what to expect. We read a lot of great things about Zula and decided to go for it - and the reviews weren't wrong! Our bungalow (2 bdrm) was private, spacious and well equipped. It was cleaned well every day. The pool is...

My boyfriend and I spent a week in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica and stayed at Zula. It is by far the BEST place to stay if you are traveling to Santa Teresa. Very reasonably priced and convenient location. You can walk to most restaurants and shops. It's right across the street from the beach. The hotel staff is very friendly...
