A beautiful resort...extremely well maintained, excellent food! What makes it really unique is the staff - most friendly group that makes you feel welcomed and part of their family! Very highly recommend!

From the moment we arrived, we were met with warm and personalized service. The staff was delightful and willing to assist you in any way. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. The food was excellent and the fishing and fishing guides were top notch. We can't wait to go back!

First, I want to emphasize that if you are looking for a mega-resort with multiple restaurants, etc. this is not the place for you; and it does not pretend to be. This is essentially a quaint full service lodge focused primarily on fishing but which accommodates any form of traveler. The food is a bit limited [fairly set times for... More

Spent a week at this wonderful resort. Picked us up in a boat after arriving in small plane. Greeted with a nice cold beer. Staff were most amazing friendly people most called us by name. We do not fish so we were there to see the sights. We rented a golf cry from David at Carri bean adventures. Do not... More

We chose Belize for our honeymoon and didn't know what to expect. We chose El Pescador based off reviews and the fact that you didn't have to fish everyday to enjoy the resort. From the moment we were picked up in the boat until we were dropped off to leave we were greeted by the nicest people! All of the... More

Every year I treat myself, with my wife's enthusiastic support, to go on a fly fishing excursion . I chose El Pescador Resort as it was an Orvis endorsed destination. The resort certainly caters to fisherman looking to land bonefish, tarpon and permit. They have lodge employed guides who are skilled in teaching as well as finding fish. As a... More

El Pescador was truly a wonderful place to stay. The people were so genuinely nice & truly made you feel at home. They really created a great experience in a personal way. It is all about fishing, but there is so much more to do in the area & the staff wanted you to have a great time. The food... More

Orivs Travel assisted us on booking this trip (Dec 12-22: 7 straight days of those were without rain as well), and it couldn't be easier for US residents. For you those of you from the West Coast of the US, highly recommend the direct flight from LAX. It was worth our layover where we rented a car and explored SOCAL... More

My niece and I rang in the New Year (2016) at El Pescador. Although known as a top notch fishing lodge, we did not fish, but we found plenty to do. Cave tubing, Mayan ruins, snorkeling, sailing and relaxing! The staff were wonderful and could not do enough for us. The food was plentiful, varied and delicious. Dinners are communal... More

Every Detail of our Trip was planned and executed flawlessly by Maggie Hoffmann of Orvis travel (800-547-4322) . The Transfers from Belize City to Ambergris Caye were done quickly and without any problems. The people at both Tropic Air and El Pescador work very well as a team. Our Captain met us in Ambergris Caye just outside the baggage claim... More
