One of the reasons we chose El Pez was for the location - close to shops and restaurants without being right in the middle of them. It's also naturally cutoff from a lot of beach traffic thanks to the little cove in front of the hotel. These two things made for an ideal location. It was very quiet - the... More

The staff at El Pez are exceptional, in particular we would like to mention Mateo and Karla who went out of their way to ensure our stay was perfect. They organised a driver for us (Jorge) who took us to the sights of Tulum (Chitchen Itza, Coba, Tulum ruins, Cenotes etc). We highly reccommend Jorge, he was friendly, personable and... More

We have just returned from an excellent 10 day stay at El Pez. We were are a family with 2 children aged 8 and 5 and found that that hotel suited all of our needs. We stayed in a upstairs luxury cabana which we thought was excellent. The bed was super comfy and the children were well catered for. Shower... More

During Chicago's 2nd harshest winter in recorded history, I scoured travel blogs, sites, reviews, ezines, Pinterest...you name it. I believed I had found a perfect anecdote to the hostile Midwest winter we had endured. My research paid dividends! El Pez in Tulum. Where the Carribean, sky & jungle collide. Understated elegance in a SOHO meets shabby chic meets beach sort... More

We had a very relaxing time, wonderful food in the restaurant, very attentive staff - everyone knew our name and we plan to go back there again with out friends - I can't give a better recommendation than that ! The only slight niggle that bothered me was the bathroom/toilet wasn't fully screened off from the bedroom. But it still... More

Before proceeding, I strongly suggest that the – deservedly few – 'terrible', 'poor' & even 'average' reviews for El Pez be disregarded entirely. Having stayed at El Pez for 14 nights in January 2014, my only conclusion is that the authors of these reviews must surely have stayed somewhere else! Located on a very beautiful cove, El Pez met and... More

We stayed at El Pez for a week in march and loved everything about it! We felt right at home from the start and loved our room, that was big enough for two adults and two children with too many bags. The room was clean and beds and pillows great. We especially loved our porch with two chairs and a... More

I booked El Pez last minute for me and my sister-in-law, and we were given the last room available (room 2). I had high expectations because of the stellar reviews on TA; El Pez is even better than the reviews. The room has a very comfortable bed (haven't slept so well in months) and a deck with a partial view... More

All rooms face the water...staff is so friendly and attentive(rare in Tulum) and they just want to make your stay pleasant. The hotel is a bit off the strip of other hotels so it has a more private feel. We loved it.
