The landscape was gorgeous and the staff was very friendly. There was mold growing on the glass covering the painting that was hanging in our room. There was quite a bit of confusion regarding the meals and we were charged for dinner twice which had to be deleted from our hotel bill prior to checkout. Breakfast is served outdoors and the flies are terrible which makes it diffcult to enjoy. Also, they charged for bottled water aside from two small bottles daily. It's difficult to enjoy the beach due to the vendors constantly trying to get you to purchse trips and souvenirs. Several romantic strolls on the beach were taken over by the vendors who walked the entire distance with us in spite of our constant refusal to purchase. We would likely choose a different accomodation if we return in the future.

Z Hotel has a great location. Very comfortable stay. Loved that it was right on the beach. My only criticism was with the food. As we were on half board basis we had dinners at the hotel. The food that was presented was nothing like want was on the menu and no explanation given as to why the food was not what we ordered. Otherwise a great hotel to relax and chill out.

Beautiful hotel and sunsets are spectacular. Pool area is superb. One area of improvement could be to try and control the flies at breakfast, every morning was a battle with them!
