My husband and I have just spent a wonderful week at El Pez. The hotel is small and friendly and located right on the beach. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Each day we were left bottled water and fresh beach towels, as well as an early morning coffee to enjoy before breakfast. All rooms have a balcony and a sea view. Most rooms are facing/on the beach, however there are 2 garden rooms from which you do still get a sea view.
The hotel serves a delicious breakfast, with a choice of tea forte teas. The banana pancakes are highly recommended! They also have a lunch and dinner menu - we found the food to be fresh, highly flavourful and reasonably priced. The waiters were very friendly and helpful (especially Bruno, Wilberth and Reuben).
The hotel is located within a quiet cove, and although the beach is beautiful with white sand, it is a little too rocky to swim. However, just a few mins walk along the beach brings you to a long stretch of perfect beach with great swimming. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of plenty of restaurants. We also hired bicycles and cycled down the beach road to Tulum's Mayan ruins which was lots of fun. There are plenty of day trips on offer, as well as snorkelling and diving opportunities.
Additionally, our flight home was delayed by 24hrs (due to snow!) and the hotel could not have been more accommodating. They extended our stay and rearranged our airport transfers, all before breakfast.
Overall, we had a very relaxing week in a great hotel - we highly recommend it!
