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

We stayed a total of 4 nights at the hotel. Rooms were very clean and the staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. We liked our bedrooms both times ( we had street view and sea view for one night ). 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.

Stayed at the El Pescador for a couple of nights while in Puerto Vallarta. It is on the beach, close to the El Malecon with its bars and clubs. The room was very spacious, with two twin beds, however basic. The bathroom was outdated and we had a few visitors (tiny ants) during our stay. We booked breakfast as well,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was clean, shower was fine, very nice pool, good location, friendly staff, but the beds were as hard as sleeping on the floor. Included breakfast was mediocre so we only ate it one of the 2 mornings.

The hotel overall is very good. There is a big pool (unfortunately there are not so many sunbeds) and it's right at the beach. It is close to the city centre without being exposed to any noise from the restaurants and bars. We were lucky to have a really nice and big room but we have also seen others that... More
