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.

Absolutely LOVED this hotel. My boyfriend and I stayed at Le Zebra for 5 nights this July and had the best time! The hotel staff was AMAZING! Grace and Chabely were very helpful and so kind. The hotel staff arranged transportation for us from the Cancun airport. We walked outside and found our driver with the Le Zebra sign and...

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...

Hi, Thank you very much for your review as everyone helps us improve. We are aware that many of our rooms do not have direct breeze from the beach, which can be uncomfortable for certain guests. Due to this demand, we are currently working on upgrading our power supply with hopes of installing AC before the next high season. Next...

Loved this hotel. Stayed 6 nights in a beach front cabana, waking to the sound of the waves and ocean breeze every morning. Excellent restaurant and great staff made the stay a memorable one. The most relaxing stay I've ever had.

I recently stayed at La Zebra for 5 nights and can't say enough about this place. The beach and water in Tulum are amazing, with soft sand and warm ocean water. The waves are entirely manageable without being flat, sufficient for body surfing. The location in Tulum is great, walkable to many other restaurants, the only bar in the area...
