My son (16) and I spent 5 days in February at El Pescador - fishing, diving, snorkeling. Excellent in all respects. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean and attractive. The staff was extraordinary.

The El Pescador staff made my first trip to Belize memorable. They treated our group of women business owners as VIP's and live up to their promise of making guests feel like family. Additionally, The outings they planned were fun, drinks were always cold and served with a smile and the rooms were comfortable and well tended. Hats off to... More

Excellent service, food and fishing. The natural beauty of the island is enhanced by the people at this fine resort. Fishing guides worked hard and were as effective as possible based on the conditions that we experienced. I hope to return!

We took a family first vacation with only two fishing days and we all had an outstanding time. The staff was fantastic with our 3.5 year old which allowed my wife and I to enjoy dinners with the other guests. For Family, fishing diving or just relaxing you won't find a better place to stay.

Hands down, best vaction ever. The resort staff is incredible. Kindest, most genuine group of people I've ever experienced. Go to El Pescador!!! Fly fish, reef fish, snorkel, dive, paddleboard, kayak, or just sit by the pool and relax. The meals are excellent, especially the dinner. I can't explain how great this vaction was. Thank You everyone at El Pescador.... More

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
