The latest spot on the increasingly popular Mayan Riviera is a small six-room boutique hotel called Pez Ocean Palace. Located on a secluded rocky cove overlooking private lagoon, Punta Piedra, and a short walk from the Tulum beach village it offers a playful place to stay. The six room have ocean views and are named after sea creatures. Rooms have wireless internet, rain showers and private balconies. The swimming pool and gardens overlook the ocean. During the summer months from July to September, giant sea turtles can often be seen at night digging their nests in front of the hotel and laying hundreds of eggs, which hatch into November.
The restaurant is open from 8am to 10pm and serves a range of healthy dishes with an Oriental-Mexican fusion style offering fresh seafood, organically grown herbs from jungle gardens and local produce. The champagne bar serves up bubbly cocktails as the house special with fresh tropical fruit juice twists. Room rates start at $260 per night.
