What makes this place is the staff. Very attentive to all our needs and arranged everything we asked for. The accommodations are excellent and worth every penny. One of the best things about our stay was the community dinners. We had reserved seating, usually with a different couple or family each night. It was great getting to know new people,... More

Every aspect of our stay at El Pescador was wonderful. The accommodations are spacious and well furnished, the food served family style is first class and fishing, diving and snorkeling couldn't be better. Also the service level is very high with employees proud to wear shirts saying "family" which is how they made us feel. If you are going to... More

This is the center of much fishing activity. We are not so cannot comment on that aspect. It does have clean modern rooms, good wifi, an excellent bar. The food was good but not outstanding. There is no close in snorkeling, you have to arrange a trip somewhere. Free bikes and kayaks were a nice amenity. Three pools, game courts... More

I booked my husband and I at El Pescador because we wanted to stay on Ambergris but we are very laid back people and didn't want to be with too many sun goddesses or party people. I also like to fly fish, but am certainly inexperienced. My husband had never picked up a fly rod before. I was hoping he... More

The only thing less than amazing about the visit was the weather. The staff, from groundskeepers to front desk, were all happy, pleasant, and eager to help you in any way. You can tell that they all genuinely love working at the resort. And the food, amazing!! Lobster the night we arrived, and one of the best Thanksgiving Turkey dinners... More

The staff wear shirts that say "El Pescador Family" and they mean it. Within an hour of your arrival, you are family too. Even the other guests introduced themselves when we arrived. The staff take the time to remember your name, room number and interests. And if your interest is fishing you have come to the right spot...in a boat,... More

What a fantastic fishing vacation. I never did an all inclusive vacation before, nor have I ever used a fishing guide. El Pescador had both. I didn't realize it at the time, but this is the perfect combination for relaxing get-away. No thinking, no planning, everything taken care of for you by the nicest staff. Transport from Belize City to... More

We 1st visited in Feb.2014 for our 25th anniversary and had a great trip. When we had time to get away for a long week over Thanksgiving we decided to go back. A couple of months before our Nov. arrival El Pescador completed a significant remodel. We stayed in the main lodge room right next to our previous visit one.... More

What can I say… El Pescador lived up to all of the "hype" that I had heard. My husband and I just returned from a 6 day 5 night trip, and we were definitely not ready to leave. The staff at El Pescador were amazing. They knew us by name within 24 hours of our arrival, and no request was... More
