We booked this hotel based on a recommendation, I was disappointed. We booked about 5 days before arriving (wanted to check out PV on our way home from Los Ayala) I paid over $140 per night CAN and I was extremely disappointed. Had I paid the rates that others paid (aprox $55 a night) I would not feel so ripped... More

I have stayed previously at the sister hotel Rosita which is very similar and close by . It was good value. El pescador has almost the same format but the staff are less experienced / professional. I needed a location with elevator or no stairs so that limited choice in this area as one of the group was using a... More

We recently returned from a 10 day night stay at El Pescador. The location of this hotel was excellent. It was a short walk to the Malecon and very close to many little restaurants & a Leys grocery/department store one block away. On arrival the front desk & bell hop were very friendly & helpful. A secure safety deposit box... More

El Pescador is just beyond the northern end of the Malecon, about 1.5 mile walk down to the far south end of the promenade. The check in service and staff are efficient and friendly; the room we had on the ground floor was modest (with a tiny shower), but reasonably clean, and with lovely patio overlooking the beach. The hotel... More

This hotel is a few blocks from beautiful shops, restaurants, and the famous walkway of Puerto Vallarata. The hotel has 103 rooms many with terraces and balconies. It has a nice pool, but most of all its right on the beach. We stayed in room 18, we had a beautiful terrace with a fabulous show of the sun going down... More

Walked in for the 3rd time now and got the 3 night promotion, stay 2 an 3rd nights free. Ocean front for 15 more total for all three, two blocks from the malecon, can't beat this deal, non peak season of course

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.
