I recently stayed at La Zebra for 5 nights and can't say enough about this place. The beach and water in Tulum are amazing, with soft sand and warm ocean water. The waves are entirely manageable without being flat, sufficient for body surfing. The location in Tulum is great, walkable to many other restaurants, the only bar in the area... More

This hotel is just that good that from the moment we left last year, we couldn't wait to return! We wanted to return to the natural beauty, unplug and relax. Having a 3 year old, I wanted to make sure that we stayed on the beach side so that our son could play with his beach toys in the sand(right... More

La zebra was an awesome choice for our honeymoon. I loved the bed with the full size fan right above us and the mosquito netting around it. It was perfect for the warm nights. Grace was an excellent host and most everyone working there was really friendly. Our laundry got lost but turned up in the nick of time and... More

Stayed in a jungle room but found this really hot, but the staff kindly provided fans, and then moved us to a beachside room, this was less hot and again the fans did help.

My wife and I stayed at Ahau Tulum and really loved that experience, so it was tough (I use that term loosely) to move to another hotel when Ahau was booked. We were last minute coming in from Merida and needed a place to crash in Tulum, and fortunately there was one room left on a fantastic discount but on... More

We just spent one week at La Zebra in Tulum, Mexico. We are a family of five and we stayed in the master suite. As soon as we entered the hotel we knew it was a very special place. The bar and restaurant area was part of a beautiful wooden structure with different level decking leading out to the white... More

This is our first time staying in Tulum. We have been to Cancun and Playa del Carmen several times. We went for our 10th wedding anniversary. I wanted a more rustic and back to nature place inside of an all inclusive type of hotel. First things first, please be aware no TV, phone or air conditioning in the cabanas. Instead... More
