My mother and I stayed here for the last week in February. We have been to Mexico 9 times and to Puerto Vallarta 6 times. We love this city, so we decided it was time to get away from the all-inclusive hotel zone and stay some where closer to the city. This hotel was a good deal so we booked... More

This hotel is a perfect place to experience PV without having to stay in a contrived all-inclusive. G ood continental breakfast that can be upgraded for decent prices. Rooms are just fine with plenty of room. Seaside rooms are well worth the upgrade for the beautiful views of the ocean. Close to the Malecon but away from the action. Very... More

This hotel is a little dated, but you can't beat the location. Pool was great as it was recently redone. Rooms could use some new beds as they were hard as a rock. Very clean and staff very friendly. Would stay here again.

I stayed at the El Pescador for a couple of nights, in two different rooms, with my wife and daughter. We were bitten by bed bugs (caught a bed bug and took a picture). We were then bitten in the second room, when the manager moved us to a "clean" room. This hotel and Hotel Rosita are close together and... More

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
