We were fortunate enough to stay in this lovely hotel. Even though our trip had lots of rain, we still had a wonderful time. This was thanks to the wonderful Zebra hotel and staff. Everyone was so friendly. The staff went above and beyond to make you comfortable. The hotel is beautiful, rooms are all unique and lovely. They treated us as family! Plenty of spots to relax on the beach. If the weather had been sunny, I dont think we would ever want to leave! If you are going to Tulum, definitely choose this hotel.

Hotel's Favorite
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.

I cannot praise La Zebra enough! Although we didn’t stay here ourselves we were here frequently and vowed that next time we visit Tulum we are without a doubt staying here. We came here for breakfast mostly, which was amazing, and to sit at the bar for drinks at the end of the night. The entire staff was so lovely and attentive, they really know how to make you feel welcome! Our server Jorge took excellent care of us for our breakfast meals. On the nights we came for drinks Rey, the head bartender, was so wonderful to us! He was really knowledgeable and friendly, we agreed we’d both specifically come back to visit him any day of the week! La zebra - you are doing everything right. Thank you for your service!

This hotel is way overrated in my opinion and not worth the expensive price tag. It’s well situated on the beach in a good location but lacks the personalized service others had written about. Hotel seems to lack character and personality, probably down to lack of management visibility. Utterly forgettable stay.

Dear Guest, We feel extremely disappointed to read that we did not hear from yourself while you were still a guest of ours. As you have already mentioned, most of our guests always praise our good service. We know we might have not delivered the same level while you were with us and we would like to apologize and ask you for more information on how we could have been better so we can talk to our team and grow from here. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly, we would love a second chance so we can show you how good of a experience can you live with us. Best, Gustavo Martínez
