Dear Niall, Many thanks for sharing your recent experience at Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa here on TripAdvisor. I am glad to learn that your overall experience in the resort has been positive and that you liked the property and your beachfront bungalow. However, it is always a concern to me when a guest is disappointed with the quality of product and service and I appreciate you taking the time to share with us your feedback. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the inconvenience in regards to the mosquitoes in the room and also that the dispensers for the shampoo were not functioning.

Hi everyone. I have been impressed by everyones reviews about Zazens and will definitely be going in September this year. My only problem I cant decide on the garden villa or the delux beach villa. Can anyone help ?, Also are there any fishing tours available ? Regards Greg
Dear Greg, Thank you for your message. As KingBedB said, room 5 certainly is stunning, directly at the beach in the corner. However Garden Villas are very nice too, refurbished, the most spacious rooms and located in the Garden. Please feel free to contact us via email for further questions. The team and I look forward welcoming you to Zazen soon. Claudio
