    Wonderful!!

    Working with Kara and The Zota was amazing. They made sure I did not have to worry about a single thing on our big day. We are so appreciative for everyone at The Zota and for their use of an awesome day of coordinating service. We had the most amazing time and everything was taken care of perfectly.

    Beautiful!

    Our wedding reception at Zota was so beautiful! The team there is outstanding. I can’t recommend this hotel enough. Thanks to Kara and Rio, they made our experience so amazing. The food was delicious and the terrace was perfect for our small group. Everyone had such a wonderful time. The beach view is breathtaking, can’t wait to go back!
