Tulum is a great place for exhibitionists, and La Zebra is a great place for exhibitionists to play volleyball in bikinis and then fall down and roll around provocatively in the sand in full view of fruity-drink-drinking observers, then hop up onto the salsa platform and do a little dirty salsa-ing with no music in the middle of the afternoon....

I stayed here in July and had the time of my life. La Zebra is on an absolutely primo bit of beach complete with sun lounges, coconut trees and even a volleyball net if you're up for it. The staff are absolutely next level! Nicest people and great fun, always looking to make your stay more enjoyable. The rustic interior... More

I've stayed in many places in tulum, but la zebra takes the cake. Rustic chic interiors, great local food, friendly staff.. It's just a good blend of everything done right. Sunday nights are a must. La Zebra is famous for their Sunday night salsa and it doesn't disappoint.. They have lessons before it really kicks off. Epic night.

If you are like me, TripAdvisor is both a blessing and a curse. Blessing because you get to learn a lot about different properties but a curse because too much information makes you indecisive. I'll make it easy for you: if you are going to Tulum and want to stay at a hotel with a great staff, on a beautiful... More

I stayed here start august in a jungle cabana. I was initially concerned that there was no Ac & lack of seabreeze would make it difficult to sleep, however, it was fine. Room was great, and I LOVED the organic complimentary toiletries! No wifi in the rooms but wifi in the restaurant and on the beach. Reception staff were AMAZING!!... More

We stumbled upon this place last year and it was amazing, everything about, location, food, service, rooms, everything. This year I chose it to spend my birthday with friends. Our room was great, it was the upstairs unit over the sea, but most of the time we didn't have water. We thought maybe it was just a time of day... More

We stayed at La Zebra for 4 nights back in November 2013. The hotel is located just by the main (only?) road in Tulum, literally on the beach. Driving from Playa del Carmen, it wasn't too difficult to find it as the directions were very clear. There's a parking, which was always half-empty so finding a spot wasn't a problem.... More

I have been in the restaurant to have dinner during my stay in Tulum. The location is really amazing: you eat with you feet in the sand right in front of the sea. The atmosphere is really nice and the staff is pleasant and polite. I suggest to have dinner here!

First, the staff here are amazing and I can't say enough about them all. The young gentleman who run the restaurant, maintenance and security are the best. The concierge(s) were very polite and helpful. If you need a cool drink or something to eat, the wait staff are just wonderful. They are very polite, clean, prompt (but not pushy) and... More
