El Pez is my personal definition of everything I want in a vacation. Relaxed, yet luxurious. Private/secluded, yet fun atmosphere when people come to the amazing bar and restaurant. We stayed for only a few nights and plan to go back for longer, every year if we can! This would be my go-to place forever. The service was wonderful and...

After a week at an all inclusive resort we spent almost a week at the el pez. Small, cozy, friendly and right on the beach. The food was out of this world. So are the smoothies. Close to walk or cab to anything in tulum and didn't break the bank. The staff was wonderful, remembered our names, and super helpful....

I ate at El Pez 4 times while in Tulum. We ate breakfast there 3 times and dinner once. We had the best service in the whole city here. You can't beat the beach front views and the decor was impeccable. Highly recommend!!

This hotel exceeded all of our expectations! The location, wonderful staff, and the food....the food is beyond amazing! The freshest, "cleanest", creative food and drinks!
