We just returned from a fabulous week at El Pescador. The trip was to celebrate my sons college graduation. I, his mother, don't fish, but was excited to go along with him and watch him do his thing. He is an avid stream fly fisher, but this was his first time ocean fly fishing. All of the fishing guides he...

Our first visit to Belize. Fished for a week with El Pescador in late October. We had a great time from the moment we arrived. The staff was amazing. Food and drink was exceptional. Rooms were perfect. The guides were knowledgeable, patient, fun, and put us on fish. We will be back someday.

Our family of six spent four days at El Pescador lodge. Fantastic trip from start to finish. Made two trips on the flats and one family reef fishing and snorkeling trip. I can't say enough about the staff and guides. We will definitely be back.

First Christmas spent away from home and it was wonderful! Previous reviews about the staff knowing you by name are dead-on. It was a very nice touch, which other guest commented on and we all appreciated. We stayed in a villa - super clean, bright, airy, good A/C. You cannot drink the water in Ambergris Caye, so el Pescador provided...

This was my first stay at an inclusive resort. The staff was friendly, experienced, and helpful. The rooms are to be the envy of the hotel world. Food cannot be beat! Fishing guides are the best in the cay! This resort sets the bar and others will be hard pressed to top them.

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
