We have been all over Mexico and Tulum is now my favorite. I can't believe I haven't been here before. It's perfect for chilling out. Most of the resorts are small boutiques. We stayed in one of the original buildings and loved it. Very spacious and right on the beach steps away from the ocean. Make sure you try the... More

After two weeks of travel in Guatemala and Belize our three days at La Zebra was to be our well earned chill out at the beach time -- and it was for the three of us (grand-parents and old grand-daughter).

We came here a couple of times to enjoy the cabanas and great service on the beach. The Tuna ceviche and shrimp tacos are the best we had in Mexico! Our waiter Herman was really attentive and kept the beers flowing! Would definitely recommend staying here or coming for a day trip.

La Zebra restaurant and beach club is awesome. Definitely recommend having lunch and a few drinks here and then soaking up the sun in their sun chairs/cabinas. We were staying in Tulum town and hired bikes to get here. The restaurant/hotel had bike parking and we're really welcoming even though we weren't guests at the hotel. We had the grilled... More

Tulum is beautiful. La Zebra staff is wonderful. We spent a day there relaxing on the beach and playing volleyball. We had so much fun we went back a couple of days later. Margaritas are really good. We did not stay at the hotel but they did show us a room. Very nice rooms with up to date amenities.

We had the best time ever! This Hotel is one of the very few "child friendly" places in Tulum, which is GREAT for us young parents. The service is remarkably well (specially waiter Herbert at the beach), the rooms are extremely nice and all the atmosphere in general is AMAZING! 😀👍🏻

My first visit to Tulum won't be my last, and I'd definitely stay at La Zebra again. I shared a ground level suite with plunge pool with my sister, and the room was large, clean, well-designed and furnished (loved the big daybed!), with a big bathroom and huge shower. At first glance, the plunge pool looked small, but we actually... More
