ZOA Hotel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Mazunte
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 July 2016

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 you a very personalized and fresh seafood every day. I had no better seafood before. The pool area and dining area are both matchless. The only thing I have to say is that the hotel
Is nothing for older people who are not good by walking because of the hillside location of the whole hotel arrangement you have a lot of stairs.

Room Tip: Bungalow No. 1 with view of all sides!

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 leave. The staff and chef are beyond compare. Marcos, the manager, makes sure that your every need is taken care of, the 2 chefs are available to make anything you desire, and prepare special fresh fish dishes that are unbelievable.
The little sleepy town of Mazunte, and a large local beach is just down the driveway, and a block away. It is fun to walk the little town, talk to the friendly local people and just chill out. This is a remote paradise, with 5+ star facilities and service.

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 us there if we wished. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable (AC could've been a *little* bit stronger) and the views were incomparable. Really, the only unfortunate thing about ZOA is that it has no beach access to Mazunte's main beach, but everything else was truly magical.

Room Tip: Best view is terrace suite

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)
