My husband and I had just finished the Olympic in Tokyo and was long over due for a vacation after the hell we’ve been through. And choosing this place was exactly what we needed to restore our energy, our minds and our marriage. 10 stars if I could! The food was AMAZING! Waking up to the sound of the ocean, tea and coffee at our door and the natural esthetics are so beautiful, we forgot where we were. I believe we fell in love with El Pez and can’t wait to be back again!

While my wife and I were taking our first vacation in several years at El Pez, we had a few days of bad weather. (We we’re there during rainy season). However, the staff was absolutely incredible and did everything within their power to get us to restaurants, schedule excursions, and adjust our plans to make the best of our vacation. The hotel was gorgeous, the food and drinks were top notch, and everyone was knowledgeable and kind. We would recommend El Pez to friends and family, rain or shine!

El Pez is simply the best hotel on Tulum Beach. We are so glad we booked there. The perfect mix of beach luxe, seclusion while still being in walking and easy bike rides of all of the activities and shopping on the beach. The staff were incredible and made us feel like family while making any activity or external rental we wanted to do super easy and stress free. They organized Covid testing for us and made it so stress free. The hotel itself and the position in the cove is hands down the best spot. Food at the restaurant was world-class 10/10. After popping in to a few other beach clubs along the coast we are certain that El Pez is the best.

We spent 6 days at El pez Colibri. It exceeded all of our expectations. The staff was very kind and attentive. They always take care of all the details to make you feel comfortable (from the coffee/tea in the morning at your room to the different and delicious infusions at night). The restaurant is excellent with very good service. Stunning views from our room, which was one of the upper sea view rooms. Contemporary decoration according to the unique and pintoresque environment. Convenient complementary drinks at others 3 Colibri hotels in the area. All of them outstanding! Perfect small boutique hotel! Definitely, highly recommended!

My experience at El Pez was amazing! Everything was beautiful! The ocean views, decor, friendly service, food, and beach front bungalow met my high expectations. All of the staff were great, but I have to give a special mention to Seima and Arturo. They personally took great care of us by making private transportation arrangements and providing recommendations to help us plan out our day. Icing on the cake was a surprise birthday welcome! I would hands down visit again. 10/10 would recommend Beautiful - Clean - Covid Friendly

We have spent 3 terrific nights at El Pez with my girlfriend during our Yucatan road-trip. El Pez is a smaller boutique in Tulum and it’s one of the most beautiful boutique hotels we’ve ever been to, with exemplary service. All of the hotel’s employees are extremely nice and helpful and they really do a great job in making your stay as pleasant as possible. The room price does not include any meals but the staff prepares coffee every morning and tea every afternoon, which they put in front of your door, so that you can enjoy it on your room’s huge balcony facing the sea. We’ve had breakfast every morning at the hotel, which was always excellent and we also enjoyed lots of drinks by the cosy pool. Unfortunately the seaweed situation wasn’t good during our stay but we understand that this is not something the staff can solve. We would like to thank Arturo, our concierge, who really went above and beyond during our stay. We have had our anniversary at the hotel and Arturo organized a bottle of champagne to make our special day more memorable, which was sent to our room in the evening, while he was also organizing a taxi for us to the restaurant where we had a reservation. He has been extremely helpful and nice during and also before our stay, as we had been in contact via WhatsApp and email for weeks. Concierge of the year award goes to him with no doubt! Also shout-out and many thanks to Armando, our waiter in the morning and during the day, who had been extremely nice! We would definitely recommend El Pez to any other couples, as the service is just terrific on top of the very nice facilities and good location of the hotel. You will definitely love it!
