Hotel's Favorite
If you want to stay at a fun, loving and vibrant hotel. This is the place for you. It has style in abundance. La Zebra hotel design is focused on a family vibe. There's a central restaurant overlooking the sea. More like a hub where everyone can meet. Food is excellent. I had some great meals. The beach is so relaxing where you can slumber on one of their day beds. Watching the waves of the sea is bliss. I had the most beautiful room. All small details are thought of. Plunge pool included. With a wonderful view of the palm trees and sea beyond. It was a pleasure to wake up to this incredible sound of the birds. Its very quiet. Considering its in the hotel zone - it was humming. It's centrally located. So you can walk to all the shops and other restaurants. Staff are very friendly with great service. The front of house seems to have eyes everywhere and keeps things ticking nicely. It all flows really well. Music makes you feel very chilled. Thanks to Jose and all the staff. I look forward to returning soon.

Amazing place, lovely staff and Germän was so attentive and made us feel special! Will will be back! The food and accommodations were exemplary. We will be sure to bring all of our family members next time. This was a family friendly spot but we still felt like it was great for a single couple as well.

This is probably my favorite hotel I have ever stayed at. Every person on their staff went above and beyond for us. We had a beachfront and a beach view plunge pool room and they were both absolutely stunning. You can literally walk a few steps & be in the water or in your plunge pool or at the bar/restaurant or getting a beachside massage. One of my favorite parts of my trip was that every evening they would bring me a tray with fresh flowers, delicious hot tea & yummy chocolates while I was sitting in my plunge pool, complimentary. I looked forward to it every day. What a great touch. The rooms are very nice, clean & comfortable. Also, the food at the hotel is incredible. Organic fresh pressed juices and smoothies…we had breakfast, lunch & dinner there and everything was great. You will also find La Zebra at the top of many lists for best places to eat which is quite convenient when you’re staying there! The other big mentionable is that the food and drinks here are definitely less expensive than eating or ordering drinks most other places in Tulum. Compared to the prices of other hotels in Tulum, this was the best value for the money. Also, location location location! You want to be in the beach area of Tulum. You can walk to almost anywhere in the beach strip from this hotel and most of the most well known restaurants, shops, places to be are a short walk from here. You do not want to have to take a cab in Tulum so this is a huge benefit of this hotel. Also, it is quite at night! Be careful searching for a hotel in Tulum because a lot of them are also beach clubs where you will be up all night with the noise if you aren’t joining the crowd. If you want to get some rest on your trip this is your hotel. Close to everything but also quite at night. I would go back to Tulum just to stay at La Zebra.

La Zebra is a fantastic hotel with top-tier service. The room was clean, modern, beautiful, and well laid out with everything we needed. The staff are friendly, helpful, easy to communicate with, and proactive. There were also nice touches such as complimentary drinks on arrival, complimentary evening tea, pour-over coffee in the rooms, filtered water, and yoga mats. The food at the restaurant is fantastic and they had live Mexican music on Thursdays. \We noticed the beach furniture and layout were some of the best along the beach. The location is great - it is quiet and peaceful, but only a 5-minute walk to the action by the beach or main road. There are great restaurants nearby like Pinches Tacos, Darkside Pizza, and Matcha Mama. We also noticed there were amenities that would make this a great option for families looking to spend quality time together.

This was our first time in Tulum and Le Zebra was the best. The room was perfect. Short walk to beach. Like 30 seconds! The plunge pool was a nice addition. Food and drinks at restaurant was awesome. Staff was amazing. The staff exceeded our expectations and helped us book a one day tour which was also awesome. Beach was never crowded and plenty of space to lounge at cabanas or chairs. Truly awesome experience.

We have been coming to the beach club at La Zebra for 8 years and finally had a chance to stay on the property for 5 nights. It was fabulous. We love the laid back vibe, excellent service and food, housekeeping is wonderful and caring, front desk guys are awesome! There's nothing better than lounging beachfront at a place that has the Tulum essence. (not loud crazy party music) I would have liked to have a yoga class offered but that's the only thing I could think of to make the experience better. Thank you so much for everything. We will be back soon.

Me, my husband and my 2 daughters had an amazing holiday at La Zebra between 28 Dec -4 Jan 2023. We stayed at Beacfront Room with pool. Our room had an amazing location just a few steps from the beach and with an amazing view. We also had our own Cabana so no stress for sunbeds. Our room was clean with all amenities. Every morning e hd. basket at our door with fresh coffee , tea and one treats as well. Our cleaning lady always did a good job with cleaning our room despite the whole sand we bring in :-). We had clean towels for indoor & beach whenever we needed. Fresh water bottles were always refilled. The restaurant was nice with good options. We had our breakfast here , German was very smiling & helpful every morning. For dinner e tried different options but we had the Taco Night at La Zebra and it was amazing! The concierge team was always helpful& polite , but I have to mention specifically Joss, who has been always there for us whatever we needed to be arranged🙏🏻 Special thank Joss! The hotel is very close to many restaurants , shops, pharmacy just a few mjn walking distance. You can reach anywhere easily .We also felt safe & secure . We also joined two trips with a guide , dear Manuel, he was so informative and soo good with the kids! Allover our stay was a 5 star , we enjoyed so much Tulum & La Zebra. We depart with lovely memories, thank you again ! Ergin Family

Just got back from Le Zebra and had an amazing time. The hotel is centrally located and everything now within walking distance. Food at the hotel is literally the best there is in Tulum. As for service, there is no better than Isaias who took care of our every need from the moment we got there. In addition, he went out of his way to make sure my kids were safe everywhere they went since they were headed to the jungle multiple nights for the all night music festivals. Lastly, I would be remiss if I don’t give a huge shout out to Marco from the resort and beach bar and Al the evening front desk manager. They made our trip amazing! Don’t stay anywhere else in Tulum besides Le Zebra! ❤️
