The setting for meals is just wonderful. The ambiance is great and the attention to detail in the space makes the feeling special. However, the service is not anything to write home about. The food may have been more tasty if it had been served at the right temperature but no it wasn't even warm, not close.... so that really... More

Good drinks, good beach club area, and good fish tacos. It was a little too windy to sit on the beach the day we came, so we went up to the semi-outdoor deck and looked out at the sea. Had some drinks, and then the fish tacos and ceviche. Very good food -- though more "American" than authentic.

I went twice all the way from Playa del Carmen to Tulum by colectivo and taxi just to attend the salsa class and dance to the salsa band. What could you have more but a great place at the beach, excellent salsa instructor, a good band and a lot of dancers?

Recommended by a local. Beautiful beach scene in a boutique type hotel. Food (fish tacos) was excellent as was service. A little pricey for Mexico not a hindrance to going back.

We spent most days here in the month that we stayed in Tulum... The stretch of beach is absolutely gorgeous, the beach chairs comfortable and free to use for the day, the food is always delicious, the drinks are scrumptious, and the service is friendly... we just love love love La Zebra! Always excellent live music on Friday afternoons... Can't... More

The food & drinks are really good here and the prices are comparable to most places along the beach. But the Sunday night salsa lessons followed by a dance party with live music is one of the most fun things we did in Tulum! It's not a night club scene, just dancing with your sweetie, one step off the sand... More

We had lunch there. It was good, great setting right on the beach. I think I had a veg sope. Gorgeous view but it came with loads of loud Canadians and--Mexicans?--talking at volume 11. Mostly I heard the Canadians. Good service and food though. Quick and friendly service.

A bit more expensive than some of the places we went to in town for basics like tacos etc, but delicious. Definitely one of the best places for a nice night out near the beach. The octopus salad was especially amazing.
