I had a 4 night room booked for this spring and due to issues that arose I needed to cancel my reservation. I spoke to someone 6 weeks prior to the scheduled trip who confirmed cancelation and said a refund in full would be issued within 15 days. To this date I have received no refund and the hotel has disconnected ALL phone lines and is unresponsive via email. The lack of regard for their clients money and reservations is disgusting.

Dear Alexandra, We really are sorry that you have not been able to enjoy your planned vacation with us in Tulum as a result of a global pandemic which has taken the entire world by surprise. We have reviewed your personal situation and note that: • In addition to a phone conversation with you, we have communicated with you by email on several occasions prior to your post. We apologize if any of our email responses to you were slow or delayed at this crazy time. • You were offered a choice of: o A credit of 120% of the value of your booking, usable within three years, by you or your family or friends. By industry standards, this a very generous offer, and reflects how much we value you and all of our guests. o A full refund (not an option with many hotels or airlines) • You have opted for the full refund. We respect this. It is 100% our intention to give you a full refund as soon as we possibly can. This we promise you! This has regrettably taken longer than our normal processing time and we hope that you and others can appreciate that this is because these are unprecedented times… they cannot be in any way considered normal! Our goal, if it is considered safe to do so, is to re-open our hotel by July 1, 2020 with an even more lenient Booking/Cancellation policy. For bookings made post 25 April, 2020: • $50 booking/processing fee at time of reservation • Full payment only required on check in at our hotel/s NB. The exception to this will be Christmas period, where 50% of the booking value will be required 30 days before arrival. This new policy will eliminate any risk of not being able to refund monies in a timely fashion through circumstances out of our control. We truly hope that when all this craziness is behind us and things are safe again, that we will have the opportunity to host you, relaxing in stunning Tulum. That is our dream. Kind regards, Natalia Redondo Colibri Boutique Hotels

Amazing!! I can't give enough praise. La Zebra is the optimal balance of Tulum luxury, 5-star service, and lively community. Overall, the hotel's location, rooms, and amenities cannot be surpassed. Rooms are massive, chic, quiet, and cool. The staff and servers are 5-star attentive, professional, and friendly. In addition to the service and amenities, it was the little details that made the stay spectacular: The complimentary mezcal was the absolute best out of my tasting tour. Comforting turn-downs with perfectly steeped tea, chocolates, and macaroons. Luxe toiletries and biofriendly bug-repellant. Plus complimentary sheet freshener to bring La Zeb's scent home. The beach club/bar is the best you will find in Tulum for fresh custom cocktails, good vibes, and making friends. This place is ideal for those desiring a lavish stay and a lively young adult community. I was there during a slow period, so there was always space on the beach; I imagine things are more crowded during high seasons. When Tulum was emptying out for the virus quarantine, La Zebra was the place for the remainder of us to find camaraderie. I am absolutely coming back as soon as I can. Cannot recommend more highly.

Stayed here for the past few days and enjoyed the experience very much! The staff was extremely helpful and attentive and nice to all. The location was superb and the food was excellent! Also appreciate the fact they give you a bottle of Mezcal on arrival as well as coctails. They also give you chocolate as well. You also have the option to visit the other 3 properties as well. I'd say the only drawback is that it isn't all adults here. But they do have activities to do in case you don't want to get in the water.

My bf and I spent a few days in a beachfront suite with plunge pool on my birthday. We arrived a few hours before check in so the room wasn’t ready yet, which was no problem since we got to spend the time at the beach. We were greeted with delicious margaritas as welcome drinks and escorted down to the beach under a cabana to wait for our room. Our room was perfect- literally outside our plunge pool is the white sand and turquoise beach. The room itself had a huge, comfortable, California King size bed, a day bed, 2 huge sinks, and a huge walk in shower that actually had 2 showers. It was one of the most nice hotels I’ve stayed in. One of my favorite touches were the ponchos- instead of bathrobes, we had ponchos. Super cute! The meals each day were great- had the best tacos and Tres Leches pancakes ever. The meals can cost a lot $50USD For 2 people- but we very much enjoyed each meal. The beach is gorgeous despite some seaweed. The staff appears to clean often, but it’s hard to keep up- it honestly wasn’t so bad. I’d have to say the sand was so white and soft- truly beautiful beach scene. Each staff member was attentive and kind- anytime we wanted the plunge pool heated up, it was always warm within 15 min. The turn down each night is a nice calming touch as well- we enjoyed the nightly turn down tea. I would def come back! Thank you for making my birthday memorable!
