My wife and I just finished our 3rd stay at El Pescador, and 7th trip to Ambergris. We will keep coming to the island, and can't imagine staying anywhere else on it. Over the years we've done the trip by ourselves, with friends, with family and also with our two little kids (3 and 5). Each trip has been successful, and the most recent adventure (June 2013) was with our kids and another couple, who brought their 1 yr old. We don't fish, and instead filled the week with diving, snorkeling and relaxing at the pool. Family Style dining each night allowed for us to enjoy the fishing stories, without having to actually do the fishing! The resort was extremely accommodative to our children, and the best example is perhaps that my daughter's pancakes were always made in the shape of hearts ... which started every day with a smile! When you travel with small kids, few things are as important as that! The owners put their heart and soul into this resort and we leave it each time thankful that there is a dedicated family protecting this special place. We'll be back, my 5 yr old has already begun negotiating.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- El Pescador’s beachfront lodge and villas are situated on over 45 private acres with ambiance, specializing in fishing, diving and eco-adventures. We are family-owned and operated with emphasis on creating camaraderie and an authentic Belizean experience. El Pescador is proud of our philosophy to protect and nurture friendship, adventure and the environment. El Pescador has long been known as a world-class fishing destination offering outstanding flats fishing for bonefish, tarpon and permit. El Pescador has been the only resort on Ambergris Caye specializing in saltwater flats fishing since 1974. Since coming under new ownership in 1997, the resort has established itself as an eco-friendly tropical getaway, including a commitment to offset all carbon emissions generated by its guests flying to Belize. Donations are made on behalf of guests to a local Belizean non-profit organization, Green Reef Environmental Educational and Coastal Research Institute, to offset the carbon emissions used to travel to Belize. El Pescador was also among the key organizations to implement the new Law protecting bonefish, tarpon and permit as catch and release species. This is the most all encompassing legislation of its kind worldwide. It is great news for Belizeans, anglers, tourists and conservationists alike. El Pescador is a serene and gracious establishment on the doorstep of the world’s largest living Barrier Reef. El Pescador offers accommodations in guest rooms within its colonial style, mahogany main lodge, as well as in 1, 2, and 3 bedroom luxury beachfront villas. The villas are perfect accommodations for couples seeking romance and privacy, and for families and small groups traveling together. All rooms and villas are beachfront and have unobstructed views of the Caribbean blue waters. In addition to unequaled fishing, this first-rate resort offers all the eco-adventures which take full advantage of Belize’s exotic flora and fauna. Scuba diving, snorkeling, manatee watching, cave-tubing and zip-lining, and Maya archaeological explorations are just a small assortment of the activities available while staying at El Pescador. ... more less
