honestly there are no words to describe the experience we had at El Pez and Tulum in general. I've traveled extensively and this is THE best hotel - here are the reasons why, first and foremost the sheer simple beauty of this hotel we stayed in a jr suite, right on the beach, oceanfront does not even describe it! This isn't for everyone I'll admit. There's no AC but you would be hard pressed to find that in Tulum beach. There's an ocean breeze and it works just fine. The room is beautiful it was exactly the kind of non resort style decor i wanted for my honeymoon the pictures don't even do it justice! The balcony was beautiful! The beach is rocky but a 5 minute walk takes you to a perfect stretch of beach. Every other aspect of the quaint charming grounds is perfection! The staff are what really push this place over the edge, Michael and Julia were there waiting when we checked in. My husband had thrown his back out and they were so gracious and accomodating making the check in a breeze. We were handed cold towels and a coco-hito, the house special cocktail and being a bar owner i can say i want to steal the recipe! Julia drove home to get tiger balm for my husbands back! Beyond good service this staff is like a family and everyone does everything! Wilbur in the bar/ restaurant was amazing! Derek booked us bikes refered us to amazing eats and other local attractions and the level of dedication to service here is unsurpassed! We immediately felt like old friends! The breakfast included in the room was out of this world! I highly recommend getting bikes b/c you can bike everywhere in tulum w no trouble! Honestly I wish i could give more than 5 stars!!!! Best decision ever to stay here and we will be back many more times I'm sure!!!
