In Tulum for birthday celebrations, stayed the duration at El Pez in one of the beachfront plunge pool rooms. They are beautifully fitted out and were kept spotlessly clean for us. The food and drinks were on point and best of all the staff were incredibly friendly, without being over the top. Nothing was too much bother, they are a credit to the hotel. El Pez has a unique location on the Tulum coast, slightly apart from the crammed in hotels further south. Would definitely recommend El Pez or any of the other Colibri properties. Don’t let the sargassum put you off, there is plenty to see and do in the area and all the hotels work hard to keep the beaches clear.
El Pez is a lovely hotel in a perfect location in Tulum. The concierges Denisse and Seima went above and beyond to make our trip special. Given the Sargassum issue in the area, they helped us find nice beaches and helped us to make the most of our trip. I would highly recommend staying here!
