We had a bit of bad luck at this hotel. The pluses are that its location is right on the corner of the two main streets in town and it is right next to a main entrance to the beach and the bus stop. The giant pool is gorgeous and perfect for swimming and relaxing after a long day at the beach or to cool off from the incredible heat.
Room prices vary according to weather you choose to have A/C, a balcony or just fan. A double in low season with private, hot water bath and fan was $38 including taxes BUT the rooms are located in a wing on the lower end of the property. The doors do not come all the way down to the floor and the high ceilings and back wall full of holey netting allow a mixture of animals to congregate in your room. Rooms are very basic with beds, a small fridge though bathrooms are big and clean and showers very warm.
Our initial room was INFESTED with big ants that were crawling everyone and on our beds and we found a cockroach in there as well. When we asked staff to spray the room so as to vacate these critters, we then found a GIANT bee's nest right outside of our door and were moved to a room down the hall. Staff was nice but could have been a lot more accommodating considering that the condition of our room was unacceptable. Other rooms were very nice so best to check. The pool made up for it!
I stayed in the more inexpensive rooms outside the main part of the hotel. The rooms were small and dark, but clean. I would recommend trying one of the indoor rooms with A/C. Our room was a little warm for my liking. I thought it was a little expensive for the facilities, but the pool was nice to lounge in.
Most of the travel guides list the hotel as Cabinas Zullymar, but the sign out front was spelled Zulimar.
Leave a comment and let me know if there is something that I could add to make this tip better!
