Reviewed 2 December 2013

This is a lovely, quiet, adults-only all inclusive hotel. Easy to get to, beautiful grounds and facilities. Wonderful for a quiet, relaxing stay. Not for you if you want water sports, shopping, nightlife, crowds, or haute cuisine.

Room -- We were in room 101 (ocean view), which is at the end of the building. There is only one floor of rooms in the main building, so with no neighbors above, the room was very quiet. Indeed, the ocean waves crashing could arguably be too loud! We were quite pleased to find the rooms contemporary and fresh (e.g. marble floors rather than terracotta). Beds were in all white, and comfortable with pillow tops.

Quiet -- With only about 50 rooms, the hotel has the pools and grounds that feel like a larger hotel but without the crowds. I was amazed at how few guests there were around. We really wanted a quiet get-away for Thanksgiving weekend, and we couldn't have been happier. We camped out each day on lounges overlooking the ocean and were regularly catered to with food and drink. We never had any trouble eating where and when we wanted, even at their on-the-beach restaurant. Drinks were well made, not watered down. This was the most relaxing getaway we've ever had.

Restaurants/service -- unfortunately the quality of the food is not commensurate with the quality of the hotel, though still 3.5 stars. The menus have about 15 entree choices on them. They'd be better suited to offer 5-7 each night and rotate through them. Psychologically I'd like to see a new menu each night, rather than the same larger menu every night. The service, though always friendly, is inconsistent and occasionally quite slow. However, if you're of the frame of mind that you're there to relax, then slow down, and don't sweat it. TIP: don't be afraid of ordering multiple breakfast entrees (e.g. pancakes and huevoes mexianos). They have a very enjoyable, eclectic juice menu (I liked the Kiwi and Cucumber).

Our objective was warm, calm, quiet, beautiful, easy -- and on that the hotel hits 5 stars. This is not the place to go if you're a foodie and/or are pretentious about service. Nudging out Hawks Cay in the Florida Keys for easy, beautiful and quiet.

Sister hotel "Dreams" -- you can go to the restaurants at Dreams, which is a sister property about 400 yards down the beach. That property is large, loud, and crowded. We went over one night for a change of pace: one restaurant was closed, the other had a 45-60 minute wait. They were hosting a 'beach party' so there were about 150 guests on banquet tables on the sand, along with a band. It was loud and busy -- a VERY different experience than at the Zoetry.

Transportation -- we were able to get cheaper air fair by booking through the hotel (which appears to be facilitated by Apple Vacations). By booking through the hotel, transportation from/to the airport is included. Taxi cabs are ridiculously expensive (e.g. $80 one way). I believe shared rides can be as little as $15 one way. The hotel was the first stop for the bus, so it was relatively quick (about 25 minutes). The hotel is halfway between Cabo San Lucas and Cabo San Jose. Each town has its own reputation (e.g. San Lucas is the party town). Cabs are about $25 one-way to either town. TIP 1: At the airport, after you get through customs, you enter a disorienting, all white, round room with no clear direction. Friendly people appear to be there to help but are actually trying to sell you on activities or time shares. Just keep walking straight through the room until you get outside the airport. There there will be all of the bus service representatives holding their signs. TIP 2: If you use the hotel's package and get transportation (transfer) included, note that this is provided by APPLE VACATIONS (they don't tell you this), so be sure to look for the Apple Vacations representative and they should have your name on a list.

Activities -- there are no water activities at the hotel. It is not safe to swim on the beach on the area due to undertows. The only swimmable beach is in Cabo San Lucas. The pools are very nice on the property, but if water sports and or ocean swimming is important to you, this is not the place.

There is WiFi throughout the property, but its performance can be intermittent. Oddly, there is no WiFi in the gym, so no music streaming. Limited cable channels -- but you're there to be outside anyway :-). Nice tennis courts (including one with artificial grass).

While this is Mexico, US Dollars are widely accepted and most of the staff can communicate in English.

Room Tip: 101 is at the end, still has a view of the ocean, is close to the stair for easy in/out, and has onl...

The beach is great and the location of the hotel is nice. However the decor and room electronics are old. Old thermostats. Unreliable tv service. Internet service works only sometimes. Service in Restaurants is just average, the don't go the extra mile, same on food, expected much more.

Noise between rooms totally unacceptable, I could hear my neighbor taking a shower and even brush his teeth!!
I won't stay they again.

We recently had hosted our closest family and friends for our three night wedding. Zoetry not only executed everything we asked for, but they went above and beyond with the details. As you know, planning a wedding can be a stressful, and doing it in another country can add on to the stress. But Zoetry REALLY impressed me with their professionalism, attention to detail, and treating our 70 guests to a wedding they'll remember forever. The hotel also referred us to the BEST vendors to use for our wedding and everything came out without a hitch.

The property is wonderful; the staff great (Nora was very helpful); the food nice but whatever you do please don't pay for an all-inclusive rate! At $250-ish per person per day it is not worth it. The spa services were outrageously expensive and the benefits that come with the all-inclusive are minimal. I doubt anyone could eat and drink that amount. We have stayed at hotels that are rated 7* - Burj Al Arab in Dubai - and felt we got our money's worth but not here.
There were approximately 20 people out by the pool most days - a good time of year to go as it was very quiet. Make sure you eat down on the beach around the fire pit in the evening - but even with the all-inclusive price they wanted to charge an extra $300 to have a special dinner on the beach. Lobster was an extra $75./pp and the wine list for a California cab starts at about $110.; retail in a store in the states would be about $20.00. The house sav blanc and cab are from Chile and very acceptable at no charge. The margaritas were great!

Room Tip: The rooms in the main hotel are nice, not sure about the villas.

Ok at first I thought I would not like this hotel. Our room was so basic and small the exercise room was horrible. But I ended up falling in love with this place. It was just what my husband and I needed to relax. Its a very quit resort, you can go next door to dreams if you want night life. I thought I would go every night but we ended up never going. Dinners here were amazing, we ate all but one night on the beach. We could walk down barefoot and they would make us a fire by our table and it was awesome. My husband loved that he did not have to wear long pants. During the day we had great service and could order anything right at our chairs. No need to get up and go into a restaurant. They have a hot tub right down by the beach that was also amazing. The rooms were not great but we were not in them much and the exercise room was terrible. Over all it was a great trip and we would go back.
