If you're looking for a tranquil Mexican holiday Tulum is the place to go. Warm, azure waters, soft, silky sand, delicious food and friendly people, Tulum has it all. And if you're going to Tulum, El Pez is the place to stay. Overlooking the beautiful Turtle Cove in the middle of the main beach area, El Pez did not disappoint. We booked a top-floor suite in one of the three luxury cabanas. Spacious, comfortable and well maintained, the suite featured a large balcony with a stunning view of the Caribbean. From there we would watch the fishermen arriving early in the morning, the pelicans that made the cove their home, the family picnics, wedding photo shoots and the beautiful sunrises. It was always entertaining. We would leave the balcony doors open at night and fall asleep to the sound of the surf while being caressed by the warm breeze.
Tulum features an eclectic array of great restaurants along the beach road. We enjoyed many delicious meals but none were as delicious as our meals at Altamar, the restaurant at El Pez. The menu featured fresh local ingredients with an Asian twist and, in our opinion, the best flan in Mexico! With exquisitely prepared food and attentive service, Altamar was indeed a very fine dining experience.
As mentioned in many of the previous reviews, Turtle Cove is beautiful but it does not have the best beach for swimming. However, El Pez's sister properties – La Zebra and Mezzanine – both have stunning beaches and guests of El Pez are welcome to use the lounge chairs and facilities during their stay. We enjoyed our daily outings but always looked forward to returning to our tranquil home at El Pez. The warmth and friendliness of the staff made us feel like one of the family, and after ten days we were sad to say goodbye. But at El Pez, it's never "adios", just "hasta pronto amigos"!
