New La Zebra Beach Club in Tulum

Sounds interesting!!! Anyone see it yet?


AUSTRALIAN JOHN KENDALL, owner of Tulum's popular Mezzanine hotel has opened La Zebra Beach Cantina & Cabanas in Tulum, a 10-cabana beach property that promises a "rustic, jungle-chic" experience two hours south of Cancun. "At La Zebra, you feel that you're actually experiencing Tulum before all the development, with a simplistic, rustic and slightly whimsical flavor," Kendall said. Amenities include king beds draped with mosquito nets, overhead fans, a complimentary bottle of tequila and wireless Internet access. The resort's Mexican-style cantina serves traditional home-style cooking. Rates start at $100 a night. For information or reservations, visit www.lazebra.com.mx.

Hmmm... I stayed at a place called La Zebra a couple years back and it was.. well... a little beyond "rustic!" We paid $20US for one somewhat miserable night, plagued by heat and mosquitoes... woke up at 4 in the morning after the electric, hence the fan, had been off for an hour or two, and drove right back to Paamul. Beautiful location but a bit TOO simple and rustic, even for me.

Pictures look like the same place but they would have had to SERIOUSLY redo it to consider charging those kind of prices. $295 US during the holidays? No AC? Sheesh!

Maybe it's pesos. If I am paying $295, I better be doing some damage to the environment with all the air conditioning I get, included.

We stayed at La Zebra about 5 years ago too & it was very,very rustic.They shut the generator off at midnight so no fan & I agree with Susie Q,it was so hot even though we were the first cabana on the beach even though it was November.
It was a nightmare to get out of the net that surrounded your bed in the middle of the night too.
Today remembering it all again I can have a good chuckle!
For the prices they want today I am sure they have made some improvements and there are some people that like it rustic and its great for that!

You can sleep in our garden for $100 pesos per night with the auto sprinkler for your morning wash - bargain.
