This small hotel is clean and comfortable (basic but has all you need) It is right on the beach with a nice pool and patio. The food is excellent and a great value with wonderful staff. It is a short walk to the Malecon and all the downtown has to offer.

My friend was staying here so we decided to try out the restaurant. If your not In a hurry eat here. The food is fantastic but they are seriously lacking in staff and the service was really slow and the waiter forgot stuff we ordered. Nothing against the staff, they are doing the best they can. But the hotel needs... More

The hotel has two towers. The Northern tower borders Calle Uruguay and is across the street from a bar that plays the same 3 rythms over... More

We spent three weeks here and really enjoyed it. The rooms are dated and simple but they were clean. The housekeeper did an excellent job and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing we missed was having a refridgerator in the room as my wife has medication that needs to be kept cool, so we bought a... More

If your not real picky about the accommodations this hotel is great. I had an ocean view room that was around $60/night. Room was dated but clean. Some rooms have been updated and have flat screen televisions (if thats important). My room had wifi. The only noise I heard at night was the ocean waves crashing into the beach every... 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.

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.
