Very clean, Friendly staff, very professional. These folks know what they doing. Lots of amenities. Very good at organizing excursions. Taxi's, planes, boat rides. The fishing is incredible, snorkeling the reef was unbelievable. Crystal clear water. The Mayan ruins were spectacular. We will be back.

What s fantastic experience! The El Pescador Lodge hosted our trip and provided a warm and family like atmosphere but blended all of the very best attributes of professionalism, unbelievable food and drink, engaging, entertaining, and knowledgeable guides and staff. I enjoyed the trip so much that I began booking next years trip in the car ride home from the... More

Had a spectacular stay in Belize at El Pescador for fishing and the beach. Great quiet hotel, run by a lovely family. The food was spectacular, each and every meal was better then the next. Good group of friendly people were there that week. The views from your room are beautiful and you are steps away from the ocean. Everything... More

We stayed at El Pescador for 5 nights and 4 days with full guided fishing and inclusive meals. I cannot begin to explain how wonderful it was to be escorted from the Tropic Air plane into to El Pescador experience! Beautiful, clean lodge room newly remodeled and well air-conditioned, fabulous meals (really fabulous) were a great highlight to this experience.... More

First off, I found El Pescador using Trip Advisor. They were the number 3 rated resort on Ambergris Caye. I read TONS of glowing reviews which gave me confidence that this was the right place for my wife and I to spend our 5 year anniversary. Oddly enough, I didn't realize until after many reviews that this was considered a... More

We traveled to El Pescador for one week (8/1 through 8/8). Everything was amazing. We stayed in the lodge and booked an all inclusive package. Our room was wonderful. We had an ocean view (I think all rooms do) and the room was very spacious. Our room had two double beds - this may be my only complaint. We would... More

The accomodations (we rented a villa), the staff, the food, the drinks and the service were all incredible! The location of the resort was also perfect - you can either bike or ride a golf cart into town. We are a family of 6 - ages ranging from 18 to 58 and although we picked this resort mainly because of... More

We can't explain how great our stay was at El Pescador! The very friendly and helpful staff were always there to aid with any needs. El Pescador owns one of the most beautiful little eco resorts on Ambergris Caye and without a doubt is worth your visit. The guided fly fishing was amazing just as advertised with awesome, friendly guides... More

We chose El Pescador as a vacation destination mainly because we have never been to Belize before and were looking for a spot that included fishing, sightseeing, nice amenities and a helpful staff. El Pescador did not disappoint. It is in a beautiful location, the rooms are clean and spacious, food excellent, fishing guides the best and the treatment from... More
