Resort near Jacó takes World Traveler Award for leading hotel in Mexico and Central America

July 29, 2013

Zephyr Palace, a five-star resort near Jacó on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast, has won World Traveler’s leading hotel award for Mexico and Central America.

World Traveler announced the award for the resort on July 20 in Lima, Peru. The sales manager for Zephyr Palace, Maria Villavicencio, told World Traveler that she was very happy to receive the award.

“We have eight themed residences,” Villavicencio said. “These have special salons for events, but we’ve had a 20-year trajectory. I believe that the experience [and] the service … [are] the most important things.”

The luxury resort’s suites cover themes from Asia to Africa to the New World. Nightly prices vary from $330 to $1,700. Events such as weddings cost around $7,500, according to the website.

The hotel’s website boasts of a pool, bar service, yoga, fitness classes, wildlife and adventure tours, spa services and transportation to the beach.

The World Traveler Awards has been around since 1993, branding its awards as the “Oscars” of the travel industry. The 2013 awards lauded the country of Peru and the city of Quito, Ecuador, as some of the leading destinations for travelers in Latin America.
