We just celebrated my daughter's wedding at La Zebra and we couldn't have been happier! The hotel has many new rooms with air-conditioning or you can stay right on the beach with ocean breezes. All of the meals were delicious, including the canapés that we served at the wedding. The servers are all friendly, efficient, and only want to please...

I would like to preface by saying this is the 4th time I go to Mexico (Rivera Maya x 2, Playa del Carmen x 1 and now Tulum). I am well travelled and well educated. I have travelled to high end-exclusive and to humble and simple places. Me and my wife travel with a positive attitude looking to have a...

It is the second time that we visit La Zebra. It is undergoing changes so it is understandable that the service was barely adequate. The food is worth your stay! It is still amazing. We asked for a new room and it was fantastic. Too bad it is NOT eco-friendly anymore. However it is very comfortable and luxurious, perfect for...

La Zebra is a dream vacation for someone looking for off the beaten path. I came home more relaxed than I have ever been in my life. The stretch of beach is amazing.

As a Top Contributor I always keep it honest. In the past I have and still enjoy the set up and beach deck at La Zebra. Many things are happening and the place is evolving.

La Zebra is the most magical place in Tulum. We first visited it in April 2014 and immediately came back in July. The beach, the restaurant, the accommodations and the staff (especially Grace and Chabely), are all world class. La Zebra is adding more rooms as they get booked so quickly. This is the place to go if you are...
