“At home in Belize...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

My first trip to El Pescador last May convinced me to return as soon as possible. Everyone in the "family" is so attentive. The guides of course are First Class, even when one is exhibiting less than stellar casting skills :-). The weather was a littly "iffy" this first week in March, so would definitely rethink the timing for next year. A special call out to amazing Zeus #1 EP Canine...who tried valiantly to stay with us in this life just a little longer, but left for a better place shortly after my group's visit. RIP Zeus puppy!

Room Tip: Rooms are very nice, but maybe a suite or villa for more than one person traveling.

OUr second trip toEl Pescador and just a good as the first. My wife doesn't fish. Many of the bone fishing "camps" don't have much for the non fisher. El Pescador has many activities such as snorkeling, trips to the mainland Mayan ruins, tubing through caves and zip lining, also relaxing by the pool. El Pescador is clean, neat, the staff are excellent, the food is above average. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Both rooms and villas available, Villa's have a bit more room but all are well kept.

El Pescador is warm and wonderful. You immediately feel like family. They have great fishing and diving and other attractions, but the main attraction is the staff, who attend to your every need without being overly fawning. You just feel totally at home and comfortable there. Food is great, rooms are as comfortable as I've ever experienced, fishing is one of the best places in the world for a grand slam (bonefish, tarpon, premit on the same day)

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic!

After hearing rave reviews of people's opinions I trust, I took a group of anglers to El Pescador last year. We repeated the trip again this year. Why the repeat business? I have visited many lodges in my life and can say that El Pescador is the best. When you arrive until you leave, you are treated as family...actually better. The food is superb, the guides are helpful, friendly and knowledgable and the accomodations are comfortable and clean. When we got there this year, there were two couples we saw from last year. Does this say something or what? You only need to go there once to realize that any other place would never come close to matching it. If you ever want that vacation place to go to, over and over again for life, El Pescador is it. If you would like to hear even more of how great El Pescador is, feel free to drop me an e-mail flycaster@att.net.

Room Tip: If you have a large group, rent one of the villas.

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
