Playa Pesquero Review - pool and beach

The grounds were beautiful – lots of grass, trees and flowers with paths leading to the rooms, beach, pools and restaurants. There always seemed to be lots of staff working hard in the garden and they were very friendly – always smiling and stopping to say hello.

The main swimming pool was amazing – see the photos below. The water was always a nice temperature (although sometimes too warm when the sun was blazing down). There was a bridge breaking it up into two halves. One half had the swim up bar and always seemed pretty busy. We preferred the other half, as it was a bit more peaceful.

There were always plenty sun loungers available and we never had any problem finding a space to lie. There were also lots of shaded places to sit, but these seemed to be more popular and we never seemed to manage to get one of these. Annoyingly a lot of people put their towels down there and never seemed to actually be there.

You were never far away from getting a cold drink as there was always a member of staff wandering around with a portable bar where you could get soft drinks, water, beer, vodka, gin or Bacardi.

There was also another smaller swimming pool for water sports and a Jacuzzi, filled with cold water rather than hot.

The beach at Playa Pesquero was amazing. Fine white sand, clear blue water and plenty sun loungers to lie on. There were Hobi Cats, Pedal boats and sea kayaks at the beach that you could use for no charge. We walked along to each end of the beach a few times during our stay and it takes at least 20 minutes to walk from one end to the other. Most of the beach was part of the Playa Pesquero resort but there were also another two hotels towards the other end of the beach.
