We recently returned from an amazing stay at El Pescador. The people, the property, the food, the guides, the accommodations, the fishing, the other guests, the professionals, the owners, the dogs the commaraderie, all exceeded our expectations. From Ricardo who ferried us to the resort, to our greeting on the dock by Marlin, Judy and Marisette in the front office, Mariano in the bar/lounge, Raina in the dining room, Rosario in the massage room, Luis, Bud's fishing guide, Laurie Ann and Ed the most wonderful and accessible fishing professionals, Ali and Alonzo owners, Max & Nala happy dogs, and all the other family of employees who took care of us, cooked for us, waited on us, served us, brought us bikes or kayaks, made a repair, raked the beach, smiled and greeted us, it was a first class experience. If you are an angler, know an angler, love an angler or just like to hang out with anglers, this is the place to be. We couldn't be happier to have vacationed here. Even though I did not fish, from start to finish this was one of our best trips EVER! Thank you for creating such a wonderful and memorable experience. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Room Tip: Rooms in the lodge are comfortable, quiet and more than adequate, but if villa rooms are available the extra space and ammenities are worth the additional expense.

We had a great time and the service was outstanding. Very nice facilities, great fishing - but without question the most personal staff. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were truly committed to our having a great time - which we did!

Great Fishing, excellent TOP notch staff and service, great food, overall excellent time. Great time, can't wait to go back, hopefully in May. We spent thanksgiving there and it was truly incredible.

Also, the fishing guides are amazing, and highly recommended! Go with Cesear, Tomas, or Emir! They know the water and know the fish!

Room Tip: Stay in the villa's! Great stuff.

Just home from 8th annual visit to Belize. El Pescador Resort on Ambergris Caye is an exceptional property. 1. It's all inclusive....or not. We opted for the full meal plan which also includes most bar items except Top Shelf brands imported from USA. 2. The food is fresh and fantastic. The grocery boat shows up every couple of days and the menus we enjoyed included: Fajitas, stone crab, filet mignon, BBQ ribs and, of course, locally caught fish and shrimp. This is what city folk call a "boutique" property: about a dozen rooms in the main lodge and six ocean front villas. We really enjoy the wonderful people we met here, while retaining a quiet, cozy atmosphere. No loud music! No drunken mobs of tourists! Like having your OWN beachfront hideaway......with three pools and a staff that WANTS to take GOOD care of you!
Most people go for the internationally famous sport fishing which is organized by a celebrated fishing expert who guides both in Wyoming and Belize. We go for the scuba operation which is equally as remarkable: maximum of 6 people per dive trip. The dive guide is a life-long pro and knows most of the fish by their first names. Thanks to his expertise, we've seen sharks, turtles, rays and every colorful fish imaginable. We've never found a more satisfying vacation experience.

Room Tip: Villas can be ONE three bed unit OR THREE individual units. UPPER VILLA has huge living room, fully stocked kitchen, MAGNIFICENT private balcony with hammock......Super comfy.

I normally fish with my buddies but this time I decided to bring my wife instead. I was a little apprehensive since I had not been here before and most of my international fishing destinations were not really what my wife would enjoy. However, El pescador came through with flying colors and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff was as good or better than any 5 star hotel we have stayed in. The food was much better than we expected and the room was plenty good and had a great a/c. (Something we were worried about). We also had good wifi access.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main lodge and found the room to be all we needed. The villas are a little nicer but we were happy with the cheaper room.
