They helped us secure a driver & talked through our plans getting to Santo Domingo & Punta Cana from Boca Chica. The hotel is a boutique hotel, very clean and I felt safe there to entire time....

I have visited this hotel over a dozen times and I have never been disappointed. This is my second home and I'm always welcomed by Marta and her staff just like a family member. Caesar was amazing and took care of us throughout the week and Kimberly kept our room pristine while we were there. Gaby and Christina were always...

I stayed in the third floor suite and it was immaculately cleaned daily. Anything we needed they provided, including special meals upon request. If you are looking for an experience to mix...

Am very happy I picked The Hotel Zapata for my two week stay on Boca Chica beach. Managers Martha and Gabby were outstanding and accommodating in every way. Room was a little dated, but immaculately cleaned daily. I stayed in the deluxe beach side suite and enjoyed the spacious quarters, two verandas and beautiful ocean view. Just steps from the...

We stayed in the hotel for 1day and 1 night. An apt place for those who choose for a calm,serene and cosy atmosphere over the noisy,crowded all-inclusive hotels/resorts. A bit pricey though for the basic amenities that the hotel provides. We reached the hotel way ahead of the check in time without prior notice and the management happily accommodated us.Rooms...

When our group needs to wind down our week of work, we head to the comfort of Hotel Zapata. Roberto and Christina are great hosts and ensured our team had a good experience. I also got to watch them give back to their community by making a huge difference in the lives of a group of children without homes. I...

Hmm....Ms. Zapata couldn't have been nicer...my taxi was late arriving and she dropped everything and started up her car to take me to the airport!

Checked in Saturday afternoon, registered by Gaby, very pleasant, Cesar took baggage to second floor room with two beds, asked for one queen bed, Gaby immediately started search and found a room on the first floor.

I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. My room was always cleaned and spotless. I love the feeling of the family run hotel. The food was amazing and always exactly what I wanted. The hotel is right on the beach which is also so clean and beautiful! I would recommend Hotel Zapata...
