We spent four nights at El Pez and what a treat it was. The beach is exquisite, with lovely loungers that are perfect for sunbathing on. The cove was protected and it was wonderful to see Pelicans diving and fishing everyday. The rooms are also a really high standard, with great AC and facilities (enjoyed the Jasmin tea left every...

We stayed here for 5 days in September 2016. Can't say enough about the staff and accommodations. The room was great, and no television or telephone made it even better. The beach and restaurant/bar were awesome. We will definitely be back to this hotel.

Great hotel. We stayed in the beach house and had a fantastic time. The restaurant was good, but trying too hard to be too fancy. We like basic, fresh meals and found it challenging to find something on the menu to suit us. Regardless, the location is ideal and the views are just stunning!

Staying at El Pez was a delightful experience. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating, the breakfast and drinks at the hotel restaurant were excellent, and overall our stay was quiet and relaxing. Our room was Casa 5, which features a large balcony with open spaces, a high ceiling, and lovely concrete floors. The air conditioning worked well, and the... More

We stayed at El Pez for one week, in September 2016. The place is more on the Bed & Breakfast side, but almost all hotels in Tulum are like that and you probably know that already, since you are going to Tulum and not Cancun. Taken this in consideration, we found that paying USD 250.00 per night, in the low... More

El Pez, as a facility, is fantastic. Great view. Very fun and relaxing environment. Delicious food and drinks. But the staff is even better. Various employees advised my girlfriend and I to visit certain restaurants, beaches, and parts of the jungle that we never would have encountered on our own (was my first time to Tulum). El Pez is great.

Hemingway's book could have been written here in the Resort, it for sure does reflect the story and the location value is adding to the tale.

We absolutely loved El Pez! The employees went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The room was lovely(a tad warm, but it's Mexico, afterall) and we loved the balcony with the perfect view every morning. I would suggest room 12--it is on the corner with excellent views!
