El Pescador in Ambergris Caye, Belize

Combining picturesque tropical accommodations with unforgettable adventure, El Pescador is both a haven and a playground off the east coast of Belize. This family-run resort enjoys a secluded location on the beach at Ambergris Caye, where each of the freestanding luxury villas - as well as all guest rooms in the gracious, colonial-style lodge - face the sea. Savor the Caribbean's distinctive flavors with fresh local cuisine at the restaurant, then head to the bar to swap the day's stories over signature rum punch. Whether you are dreaming of active pursuits, water adventures, or just relaxing in a beachfront paradise, the experienced staff at El Pescador resort will help you have the perfect Belize vacation.

From trolling the local waters to casting in the tarpon flats, fishing is a highlight at this singular resort. When not on the hunt for bonefish or permit, you might explore the region's famed barrier reef with El Pescador's own master dive and snorkel instructors. Stroll to nearby San Pedro town for its lively dining scene, or take a jungle river cruise to a Mayan archaeological site. When it comes to unique pursuits, the opportunities at El Pescador are endless.

We tried to get into El Pescadr for New Year but left it too late so sadly only had 4 nights but it was still worth it. We did not go full board as we like to try other places to eat and so only ate here twice but meals both times were very good. They did a very good pic-nic for the fishing and breakfast starts at 5.30 so plenty of time to eat before leaving at 6.30. The room was huge (we were in one of the apartment type villas) and had a great view over the beach to the sea. Very comfy bed (firm) and clean room. This was also the only place we stayed where there were mosquito nets over the windows so you could sleep with the windows open. Service was very good and all the staff made you feel welcome. They all wear the same "uniform" with a white T shirt with "El Pescador Family" on it which was good as there was not uniform distinction between the office staff, waitresses and groundsmen so everyone was equal to the guest. Well done for doing that - it made a big difference. We will hopefully be back for more Belizean hospitality and fishing.

El Pescador is a special place. Its focus is certainly fishing, but there is so much more to do (snorkeling, diving, parasailing, exploring the island and mainland, etc.). Don’t expect Ritz-Carlton-style luxury; that’s not what EP is about. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, but there is a worn-in and rustic appeal to the lodge in general. But what sets EP apart is the staff. EVERYONE is beyond friendly and helpful. In addition, the staff is very detail oriented. You might think there would be an “island time” mentality, but the front desk is on top of all the details that affect your stay. The kitchen doesn’t aim too high, but the food is solid family-style fare that fits the place. And if gluten is somehow an issue, you’re in good hands here. As for the fishing, don’t expect guarantees; flats fishing is notoriously tricky, especially with a fly rod, and the variables are many. But the guides know their stuff, and the flats are beautiful. We were also very impressed by Belize itself, where everyone is friendly, and services and attractions are well run. We will return to El Pescador.

Fishing is the focus, although we met people who were there only to scuba dive. We fished several successful days with a great guide. El Pescador is a lovely resort, but the best part about it is the staff, which catered to our every need. The women in the office were cheery and helped us arrange various activities such as reef fishing, sunset cruises, diving and snorkeling. The manager, Ken, and his wife, Ann, greeted us on arrival and made sure that everything went smoothly. Isa, the fly fishing instructor, gave lessons every day from 3:00 to 5:00 and is a miracle worker. The food was wonderful. A lovely vacation!

This was my fourth time to visit here. Brought the wife because she loves to fish as much as me. When you step off the boat, they immediately address you as family. We are foodies and the food is AMAZING!!! With El Pescador, all you do is tell them when you want to be there and what you want to do. The handle it all . The only thing you have to do is get to Belize City. Fishing is always amazing and the staff has been the same for ever. It's home to them and they make it home for you.

Our family chose El Pescador Lodge to celebrate Thanksgiving, a birthday and 2 anniversaries all in 5 days. Not to mention the amazing fishing and snorkeling we enjoyed! Each day was wonderful in every way. The staff made us feel so welcome, the food was absolutely fantastic. Everyone is invested in assuring that you have everything you need and that your well taken care of! The lodge rooms are spotless and comfortable. The dinner meal was a great opportunity to enjoy the other guests and learn about the adventures of the day! We will return again and again.
