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 and the fantastic Mayan Clay massage spot down the road.
The rooms were clean and spacious, with a great shower and daily coffee delivered to your doorstep. The food and drinks (and the view) were great. I think the restaurant had my favorite food of all of the area restaurants we tried - the ceviche bar was almost as great as the lobster burrito. I found the staff incredibly helpful and they made a bunch of great suggestions about places to visit on our one day we left the beach to go exploring inland to Coba and Valladolid.
There were many families and couples there that all seemed to be having a great time. It is a very romantic spot as well as exceedingly safe and isolated from even the town of Tulum for families to let their kids run around. I went with a couple of old friends and we also had fun bumming around and generally drinking too much and enjoying doing nothing. If you have to, there is wifi in the restaurant and beach, ideal for streaming music, posting pictures of sunsets and whatnot.
I really had a nice time and was glad I stayed at La Zebra.
