cleanExtremely Clean

This family-run hotel is small but extremely clean." (Dec. 2010, doug0077, Tripadvisor.com) One of our top priorities has always been having a very hygienic and clean facility, from rooms, to halls, to private beach area, to kitchen, bar, chairs etc. The entire establishment is spotless clean! Our entire staff is consistently cleaning to make sure you feel as comfortable as in your own home.


Even with all the security guards that the large all inclusive resorts have in Boca Chica, Hotel Zapata is one of the most secure Hotels on this beach!! Because of the intimacy of our establishment and staff, as well as the gate which separates the public beach from the sun bathing area of Hotel Zapata, the level of tranquility, peacefulness, and security you get in Hotel Zapata makes it one of its kind.
