This was our first time at Zota. The property is super nice, clean and all the staff, valet/front desk/pool, was super friendly and welcoming. The hotel location is excellent. Longboat key is one of our favorite beaches and being able to leave our room barefoot and go for walks on the beach was a treat. After our walks we enjoyed lounging in the beautiful pool area and soak in the hot spa, we seldom use hot spas, but Zota's was definitely one of the best, cleanest, most spacious spa we have experienced. This was a last minute short trip and booking availability was limited. Our room was on the first floor next to the elevator and that was one of the not so positive aspects of our stay. We were woken up a few times by loud guests as late as 2 in the morning. It would be helpful if the hotel posts signs in the elevator and hallways asking guests to be more aware of their rowdiness. Next time we will definitely request a different room location. In addition to our room location the other not so positive experience of our stay was the food. There are very limited plant-based options on the menu and the ones we tried were disappointing. Fortunately, there were some great vegan restaurants in close proximity. Green Zebra café and Kapapa offer delicious meals from brunch to fine dining. Overall we had a wonderful time at Zota. It offered the relaxed and quiet stayed we needed. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it to our family and friends

Not a 4 star hotel. Staff did nothing to address my concerns properly they are dog friendly but apparently don’t care if there are large dogs barking all night….for $400 a night very unprofessional and dismissive and definitely not 4 star service. Valet guys were the only decent part but others I dealt with had no regard to guest concerns nor any basic customer service skills don’t waste your money or time
