“La Zebra offers more than just a hotel”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

This reasonably priced hotel is absolutely lovely. We stayed in a lovely jungle cabana which was well-appointed and very comfortable. Be sure to bring a flashlight since the road is very dark.The hotel does not stint on staff or service. Everyone there was extremely helpful and very friendly. The concierge arranged some day trips for us while we lounged on the beach. He even came down to our palapa to let us know how the arrangements were coming.

The food was not exceptional and was a bit over-priced except for the pork pibil (that was excellent) but it sure was convenient and, again, the service was great.

La Zebra is located at the south end of the beach which offers a long stretch of white sand for strolling and finding nearby restaurants/bars for a lovely snack or drink. We would definitely go back to La Zebra.

Room Tip: We wanted nothing but rest and relaxation so chose a jungle room which allows you to be removed from...

We stayed next door at Nueva Vida di Ramiro, their restaurant case banana is awesome but not on the beach. We loved we could walk next door in the evening for beer, monitor, pre dinner snack and just relax!!! Everything on tulum beach is wonderful!!

We stayed at La Zebra for a wedding in November, we had the best time, ever. Amazing location, beautiful beach, great cabana's, wonderful staff, having a Victoria's Secret shoot at the hotel was an added bonus. Could not recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Try and get a cabana on the beach.

We stayed at La Zebra earlier this year and loved it. The restaurant has a great vibe and the food is quite good. The drinks rock! We would have given it 5 stars, but the hotel is a little expensive for Tulum - but it is quite nice if you get one of the cabanas closest to the beach

Room Tip: Get a beach front cabana

The title should say it all! It was our first time in Tulum, and when we go back, we're staying at La Zebra. From the delicious coffee to the white sandy beach, and everything in between, we were thoroughly impressed. Most impressive is the incredibly professional and friendly staff -- they were more than accommodating, going out of their way to give us recommendations on things to do, fixing our safe, making yummy mojitos, and just always smiling. They really made us feel welcome.

The cabanas are cozy -- they have just what you need for a beach getaway. It was quiet and relaxing. And, it's close enough to ruins and cenotes and other activities that you can really mix it up. It was off the grid and romantic, with the perfect amount of amenities to satisfy your day-to-day needs. There's a market nearby, bikes to rent, restaurants to try, and yoga to do, all within walking distance. We couldn't have planned it better if we tried.

Special thanks to Mario, for the pleasant conversations, to Leo, for those mojitos, to Jose, for his taco recommendation, and to Miriam and Lina for just being so gracious. Thanks for the best vacation we've ever had!

Room Tip: We couldn't decide between the jungle and beach cabana, so we actually did both. The jungle caba...

The hotel reservation were made with a wedding party. While we came across a few bumps pertaining to service (after wedding was completed), to accommodations and a cockroach, bad lighting, and some service personnal not as helpful or accurate as others, the view was wonderful and the relaxation of the beach. Hernan was amazing in the information and accuracy of everything.

Word to the wise, do lock your money in your safe box as I had $20 stolen from my purse while it was on the coffee table in the room.

Amazing beach lounge. Good funky music. Great place to chill. Drinks are ok but ask for an "extra shot" as the drinks are pretty weak. Soft white sand, good music and listening to the sounds of the waves with my woman and a buzz. This is paradise for me!
