I stayed here start august in a jungle cabana. I was initially concerned that there was no Ac & lack of seabreeze would make it difficult to sleep, however, it was fine. Room was great, and I LOVED the organic complimentary toiletries! No wifi in the rooms but wifi in the restaurant and on the beach. Reception staff were AMAZING!!...

We stumbled upon this place last year and it was amazing, everything about, location, food, service, rooms, everything. This year I chose it to spend my birthday with friends. Our room was great, it was the upstairs unit over the sea, but most of the time we didn't have water. We thought maybe it was just a time of day...

We stayed at La Zebra for 4 nights back in November 2013. The hotel is located just by the main (only?) road in Tulum, literally on the beach. Driving from Playa del Carmen, it wasn't too difficult to find it as the directions were very clear. There's a parking, which was always half-empty so finding a spot wasn't a problem....

I have been in the restaurant to have dinner during my stay in Tulum. The location is really amazing: you eat with you feet in the sand right in front of the sea. The atmosphere is really nice and the staff is pleasant and polite. I suggest to have dinner here!

First, the staff here are amazing and I can't say enough about them all. The young gentleman who run the restaurant, maintenance and security are the best. The concierge(s) were very polite and helpful. If you need a cool drink or something to eat, the wait staff are just wonderful. They are very polite, clean, prompt (but not pushy) and...

The location of the hotel in a paradisiac beach speaks for itself. The room is nice in its own style with a bed with a mosquito net. The staff is more than pleased to help you to find great places to visit and assist you with your needs. Food is tasty and fresh, they bake incredible coconut bread and nachos.

Stayed at La Zebra during the off season (July) for a wedding. Overall the hotel was beautifully located, very well kept, with great service. The reason I wouldn't give it "excellent" is due to room locations. While they were all very nicely appointed, during the off season, you are highly dependent on the ocean breeze to cool your room at...
