The El Pez is in a postcard-perfect setting right in front of a gorgeous strip of beach. Most of the property overlooks an area frequented by seabirds, and it was just heavenly to sit around and watch them dive for fish all day. The room was elegant and spare with a porch overlooking the ocean. I've noticed a lot of people complaining here about mosquitoes in Tulum, but we didn't have any issues w/ that here. The screens were all in shape and there was a breeze that seemed to keep them away.
The rate we booked included breakfast, which I found very good. It was more or less the same each day: cut fruit, yogurt and granola to start, followed by an egg course of some sort + fruit juice and coffee. Everything was well-prepared and again, the view of the ocean and the diving seabirds was a wonderful breakfast accompaniment.
The one misgiving I have about this place is that it's very expensive. For what you pay, you don't get a lot of amenities that would be standard at that rate elsewhere: the rooms don't have air con, bathtubs or mini-fridges. On the other hand, you also don't have 5,000 other people clambering for a stretch of sand as you might at some resorts up the coast. On balance, this was a very nice place to go for some quiet time and R&R.
