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 The bathroom was outdated and we had a few visitors (tiny ants) during our stay.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

I knew when I booked the El Pescador that it was an older hotel and may not have all the amenities we were accustomed too. We went in with an open mind and were very pleased with our stay. From the get go the front desk staff (Ricardo greeted us) was welcoming, professional and understanding of our needs. Each time... More

The location was perfect for out needs..short distance to the malecon and old town. Booked an ocean view room directly with the hotel on their website for $10 more per... More

We have been staying here since 2006, and have always appreciated the great prices and location. This year was no different. A 5 minute walk to the Malecon,access to a great ocean beach, and very reasonable prices all made for a great stay. Staff were hardworking, especially during the afternoon drink specials. While they dont have a compute/printer on site... More

We have stayed at el pescador many times. Every time was a pleasant and enjoyable experience. We like the club sandwich for lunch. Rooms are simple but clean. Walk in shower good for seniors. Close to Malecon.

The hotel may be considered well located by some. It is close to the Malecon and downtown but the beach is treacherous. Not suitable for children and perhaps not for anyone but a strong swimmer. Pool is fair. Restaurant is fair. Rooms are fair but no way to make ice and store soft drinks and juices. No beach toys but... More

Previous two times we were in the south wing over the restaurant. Only negative we noticed was there were not enough pool chairs. So then and now we need to get down there early to reserve a couple. This year there are fewer pool chairs and many are broken. There are no drawers in the room and the closet doors... More
