Pleasant and clean with nice little balconies overlooking ocean and poolside. 2 blocks by beach or street to the Malecon. Convenient to many good restaurants. Very friendly staff with dated computer system.

hotel was as advertised. It is an older hotel that is showing its age but is completely functional. Front desk quite helpful, small free breakfast each morning, old but clean rooms, AC worked well. Pool is nice and hotel is right on the ocean. The rooms have a balcony- some have a privacy divider and others do not. A large...

This is an older Mexican Boutique Hotel. It is not fancy, but it has a great location, is right on the beach, and clean. The location is excellent, and is quite quiet. The staff are lovely. We loved staying here. While it is definitely not 5 star, it is right up our alley. There were many Mexican tourists as well...

This is a nice hotel with a beautiful view of the water and lovely pool. It is a great location just a couple blocks off the malecon. The fit club is about a 30 minute walk & Starbucks is two blocks up and over:) I would definitely recommend but keep in mind a couple points...1) staff does not speak much...

Perfect stay, everything was good! It is so close to the beach, beautiful view and it is at "el malecon", so you have a lot of places to eat so close. People working there were very kind , the room is clean and beautiful. Only thing that I would suggest to the hotel is to add more lighting in the...

Love This Hotel Best out of Seven I Have Stayed In In P.V. Very Accommodating and Friendly Staff. Stayed in Two Different Rooms on this Stay and both Were Great. This is Not A Five Star Resort So If You Think That Is What You Are Getting, it Is Not. Poolside or Beach Side you Choose and Lay Back And...

It's and older hotel but clean great people super location. Pool is cool they should heat or cover at night but I'm a warm pool fan. I usually stay at a little higher end resort but I think I would book another two week stay for the convenience. Restaurant is so so but again nice people. Good price! Don't be...

First the positives; If your your looking for the all- inclusive resort type stay this is not for you. This is an old but well maintained hotel only a few block from the Malecon, which means plenty of entertainment and fantastic places to eat, from up scale restaurant to street vendors that are pretty reasonably priced. The ladies at the...

The hotel is old but clean and on the quieter end of town a few blocks from the north end of the Malecon. We had a third floor room facing the ocean and it does have incredible views. I think if we did not have an ocean view room, we would not have been happy there. I can't comment on...

We decided to stay in Puerto Vallarta for a few days before heading out to Sayulita. So we chose El Pescador based on location and price. The beds are comfy and seemed quite new. The room was clean, but quite small. We asked for ocean front and got it! Nice towels! If you are looking for pampering, this is not...
