        I very rarely leave a review and I know I’m hard to please but I can’t praise enough this wonderful boutique resort. The 2-bedroom villas are huge and well appointed with super comfortable beds. There is a laid back vibe and the service is impeccable. Every member of staff bends over backwards to ensure you have what you need, always with a smile. Every morning there is a suggestions board for lunch or dinner, . The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. The grounds are spacious and there are many places to relax by the pool or on the beach. This is an absolutely perfect place to relax 100% recommend. A truly memorable and wonderful experience. Every single member of the staff are wonderful and could not do enough for us.Thank you Dennis , Collins ,Chef . The whole setting and environment and location were fantastic. Such a relaxing place! Thanks to all of you !!!

        nice small hotel right at the beach with welcoming staff and good food”

        Nice boutique hotel (8 villas only), welcoming staff, nice food. The territory is well maintained with trees and flowers all around. Beach is 1 minute away, suitable for bathing even with small kids (waves are not that much).
        The only and key downside was strong smell of smoking in the bedroom of villa #5. The staff tried to clean it out but that was impossible as smell was old and coming also from air conditioner. They couldn’t move us to another villa unfortunately as everything by was fully booked. So if smoking smell is critical for you (as it is for my family), make sure you are not accommodated to villa #5. Also kitchen of the villa definitely needs renovation as it is covered with rust and old grease.

        We had a fantastic stay at the Zubeida. The resort is organized in villas which are spacious and well lit. It’s right on the beach which is amazing. The personnel was incredibly sweet and helpful. Props to the chef for customizing the menu as one of us is vegan.
