We stayed one perfect night at the beautiful hotel El Pez, and the gracious host Mateo made us feel like family instantly. After spending a heavenly week with a large group in a gorgeous rental house nearby (see my review for the exquisite Casa Buena Suerte), my immediate family of three couldn't bear to leave the coast for a night in Valladolid, as we had originally planned. Fortunately, I found El Pez, and we were miraculously able to book two rooms in their lovely beach house at the last minute.
After a sweaty but awe inspiring day trip to Chichen Itza, we were thrilled to return to this gorgeous and extremely comfortable casita on the beach. Despite the lack of AC (typical of Tulum's off-the-grid, eco-resort hotel zone), our rooms were cooled so well by ceiling fans and strong ocean breezes, I was actually cold at night without my blanket - in sizzling June! We gazed at the turquoise waters, fell. Asleep to the sound of the surf, ate a delicious breakfast, and got a detailed report from Mateo about the mama turtle who had laid an egg on the hotel's beach the night before (Mateo tried to alert us so we could witness this miracle, as we requested, but we were sleeping too deeply).
In addition to the extroardinary beauty, comfort, and service, and the absolutely ideal location, I love that the hotel works with local biologists to protect the many turtle eggs that are buried at Turtle Cove each season. I would love to stay a week at El Pez. It's a perfect spot for couples or small families who want a tranquil, natural, yet luxurious setting.
