Absolutely LOVED staying at El Pez! Was a great property with excellent facilities and extremely clean. The hotel had a great boutique feel to it and loved the fresh brewed herbal tea at night and coffee of a morning delivered to your cabana each morning. We stayed in the beachfront king room which was fabulous and I cannot fault the... More

This is a nice hotel but it comes at a high price. Which is to say, for me, overpriced. We stayed in an cabaña, which overlooked the beach, had a very comfortable king sized bed with adequate air conditioning. The room was large, the showers where hot and water pressure was decent. Included breakfast in the morning and the quality... More

My parents and I visited El Pez 4 times during our trip to Tulum. The breeze off the ocean as you eat dinner is just bliss. The staff are super friendly and attentive and the manager Sam made us feel so welcome. Their selection of cocktails and smoothies are delicious - the Bee Healthy was a personal favourite of mine....

Did not expect to feel a sense of community and friendship from the hotel staff, but in the end we were more sad to leave these wonderful people than to reach the end of our vacation.

After we nixed the lodging we'd booked in advance we were scrambling to find a place on the beach (and we were really hungry). The staff was great, getting our arrangements squared away while feeding us a fabulous meal. We loved the open layout of the dining area, but the real treat was the second floor balcony overlooking the sea... More

El Pez was all around an amazing experience for us. In addition to being in a beautiful location--right on the beach--what stands out most for us was the incredible service.

We stayed in a upper luxury cabana and it was totally worth it, especially for the balcony. The room is huge! We used it just for two people, but I can see two couples or a family sharing it.
