We decided to visit the east side of Mexico as we have spent decades going to Cabo San Lucas, etc.! What a difference...balmy, breezy and with a bohemian charm. A shuttle coordinated thru the hotel concierge, Lina, picked us up at the Cancun airport. We recommend not renting a car as taxis are plentiful and very inexpensive. El Pez is... More

My husband and I stayed at El Pez for 5 nights in March 2015. Our stay was perfect from beginning to end! The hotel is at the perfect location, directly on the beach and in a cove away from the busier main hotel strip in Tulum. The grounds were well maintained (much cleaner than many other beaches we saw), and... More

This is a perfect place for a beach getaway: beautiful, quiet and comfortable. It's as nice as a beach hut could possibly get. And I say that to give a warning to anyone who might be expecting hotel standards - often, when you pay a lot of money for holiday accommodation, the value comes from the relaxation of having every...

Hi Katie, Thank you for sharing your experience with your fellow travelers. We love that you found Pez "a perfect place for a beach getaway: beautiful, quiet and comfortable!" You are correct that it is not a 5-star luxury hotel, so we are happy you shared that point. If you are looking for 5-star luxury, then you might not enjoy... More

We recently stayed at El Pez for three nights, the staff welcomed us from the moment we arrived, with a wonderful drink in the terrace overlooking the beach. We had a wonderful experience, relaxing, the rooms in the cabanas were clean and comfortable and location was amazing as just next to the sea. While the hotel was great with children,... More

Hotel was gorgeous, comfortable and fantastic, quite place to have rest and to enjoy the long beach front (special thank for the staff cleaning the beach each morning). The restaurant proposes a good and stunning variety, but my favorite dish was of course the fish of the day, always with margarita. Elpez is very well maintained and staff was very... More

This was our first trip to Tulum. My wife and i have 2 kids aged 7 and 5 and they had a blast at El Pez. Great family spot. Great feel. We stayed in "La Casa" as well as the Cabanas while we were there - both were very well appointed and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool as well... More

We had a great stay in Tulum. The beds at the Hotel Pez where comfortable. The Beachouse where we stayed was very clean. Right on the beach. The hotel staff were fantastic. Lina brought our sick son a fresh coconut water to rehydrate him. All the staff were incredibly nice and especially with our son. The Margharitas were unbeatable. The... More

These "luxury" cabanas were every bit as dreamy as they looked in the pictures. We only checked in for a short stay as we drove from Cancun and had to leave at 4:30 in the morning to catch our flight back to the states. The Manager was very friendly and helpful and even arranged for a departing breakfast basket as... More

My husband and I just returned from our 8th trip to Tulum and our 4th stay at El Pez. We've seen it transform from a six room villa on the beach to a top notch, gorgeous hotel with everything you could need or want on vacation....with the the same small-villa feel that we fell in love with four years ago....

We escaped Boston’s miserable winter in mid-March to the warmth of Tulum and the caring staff at El Pez. The accommodations exceeded our expectations with the cleanliness and the degree of service on all levels of the El Pez operations. My wife and I are both in the service and hospitality business for over 25 years, so we recognize and... More
