The views amazing from our room; 346; not above the pool area so we could see all the way down to Malecon! Walk everywhere in old town and along beach walk etc. Hotel is showing age but was always clean & well maintained. Pool resurfacing just done so all new there. Happy hour twice a day and buckets of beer... More

Only spent one night here but, would return. It isn't luxurious but clean and comfortable. The desk staff were welcoming and helpful. Renovations to the pool were being completed (end of Oct) so I was given a bracelet to allow me to use the pool at another hotel just steps away. The continental breakfast was OK but, a healthy discount... More

I would definitely not recommend this place to any friend. Good location but terrible old installations. We left earlier than expected. The staff was nice. They gave us an interior room with a window to the hallway so we couldn't open it and had to leave the curtains on all the time

As say the title you get what you pay for. The hotel has a very perfect location very near the Malecon only 3 blocks and in front of the bay. Also it has the Camaron Beach that it is by far better than other beaches in Puerto Vallarta. The restaurant food is average, the service in general is good not... More

The entire hotel was clean and in good condition. One if our rooms had a part of the sink broken... More

The attraction for me was the price ($60) and the central location (3 blocks from the Malecon). If you've stayed in a Motel 6 or any similar traveller's hotels, you'll have no surprises with El Pescador. The rooms are adequate, clean and even have a small balcony. The hotel has a beach front and the few extra dollars charged for... More

We enjoyed our stay. Clean & comfortable. Breakfast was hit or miss.( not a fan of eggs.) so on pancake morning it was ok with coffee & juce. Close to the downtown area & old town. Cabit or walk. The walk is very entertaining. Staff are good.
