Recent guest reviews
Professional staff, clean (showers, lockers, towels, etc), quiet (the staff keep their voice down to just above a whisper. Other visitors are also quiet), many fantastic services (such as a private massage on the beach), accommodating (will work with your schedule)... best spa experience. Thank you
Pool and spa right on the beach, including 2 restaurants.In a gated community within walking distance to 5th avenue and great shopping and restaurants and plenty of bars. Cozumel is just a short boat ride away and many attractions around the area.I would like to take the opportunity to thank carlos the beach boy at fishermans for getting us our beach chairs and ruth for the the water areobics and salsa lessions. Also a big thankyou to marcial for all the information he has given us.the condo we were in is a little old and could use some work but all in all it was fine.
We are members for a very long time, and we recently upgraded to their "fancy", upscale resort, Tres Rios. We just returned from one week at Fishermans. From the moment our taxi pulls up to Fisherman's Village, there is a feeling for us that we have come home. Anselmo greets us as we step out of the taxi, and his warm reception starts our changeover to vacation mode. This is a small, boutique hotel with limited resources. Still, it is on the best stretch of beach in Playa and the resort gives a feeling of intimacy that my husband and I love. The restaurant (the only one) has undergone a lovely expansion and renovation. The menu, although very limited, has improved. Perhaps with thanks to the new chef, we enjoyed every meal. Our first night was "Pasta Night" and my husband and I are Gluten-free. Maitre d' Marlene immediately (and lovingly) intervened, and our first dinner at Fisherman's was wonderful. Special thanks, not only to Marlene, but also to Rigoberto, Pedro, Adan, Agustin, Eduardo,and Janani who always made the food taste even better. The rooms themselves are a little worn and old. The furniture is from the 50's. Our bedspread had stains. But, this is our absolute favorite place to be in Mexico. Look at the beach, because at such a wonderful location, you will not be spending very much time in your room.
I am a 15+ year timeshare member at this resort. I love the location and the 'smallness' of this resort. That said, I am disappointed with the overall maintenance considering the fees we pay. I have not, within these past years, seen any serious upgrade in any of the furnishings or appliances. We pay an extra fee every 5 years for room and property improvements. The furnishings that are supposedly part of the current 'improvements' look to be 'hand-me-downs' from their sister resort, Tres Rios. There was a beautiful makeover of the dining/restrooms area with an improvement in the kitchen with a new head chef, but, not much else. I realize we are in Mexico but the 'new' flatscreen televisions don't seem to have more than a couple of English speaking channels available. The hot water is all but non-existent. Numerous requests were necessary to get the kitchen utensils required to cook eggs.The air conditioning barely keeps up in January, good luck in July. Over the past 15 years, I can count on one hand the number of times the hot tub has worked while we were there. Everyone is always pleasant and apologetic but, it never gets fixed. A bright spot was the entertainment crew of Ruth and Roberto. Daily classes and entertainment were fun and educational. Thank you for that. The other bright spot is Marcial, the 'front man' for Fishermans. We look forward to seeing him every year and is a genuine asset to Fishermans. The housekeeping staff is great and always works around our schedule. Will I go back? Certainly. As I mentioned, we love the location. But, as members I feel we are being cheated with what we were originally told this '5-Star' resort was gong to be. It is a cash cow for Sunset Group and I really hope they will make the necessary improvements we have been paying for all along.
Sunset Fishermen, AKA Fishermen's (sic) Village is a good mid-sized resort in PDC. It's right on the beach in a quiet residential area, yet within walking distance to the town, with its shops and restaurants. It is modest in size, yet has all the usual amenities, without the crowds you'll find at the mega-resorts further down the coast or up in Cancun.. Most of the units are time shares, but there are also privately owned suites that are available for rent on travel sites like VRBO and Airbnb. You can choose either the all-inclusive option or pay-as-you-go. Most of the time we have eaten breakfast in our room and often go to town in the evening to dine in one of the many fine, casual restaurants. Since we were there last, they have upgraded their food service and purchased more beds and couches for the beach. One the downside, while there is both a poolside and lobby bar, the selections are somewhat limited. At our last visit, some of the desk personnel seemed to be new to their job and had problems handling vacationers questions and special requests. Also, during the high season, poolside and beach chairs and umbrellas fill up fast. Special thanks to Marcial at the resort entrance and Anselmo at the pool towel hut for their many services. Finally, an appreciation to Marguerita in the Spa, who worked out my wife's nagging shoulder pain by massage, something doctors, physical therapists and prescription drugs had failed to accomplish.
The servers: Rigoberto, Eduardo, Mailene, Adan, and Pedro did a great job. Very friendly with great service. Always greeted with a big welcome. Maid service is excellent by Teresa. We have always liked this place however the last several years the place was not maintained well. This past year the management did a necessary over haul. Made positive changes!!!!! We are no longer embarrassed to take some friends along.
Fishermen sets right on the ocean, provides wonderful food. It is the place is you want a quiet relaxing vacation. The staff is friendly and takes great care to make sure you enjoy your vacation. You can walk down the beach and be in Playa Del Carmen in 15 to 20 minutes.
I've stayed here in the past and it was very nice. Stopped to visit this year as we were staying elsewhere. The rooms have been renovated, there's a wide beach, and the Caribbean is beautiful. We sought help from the doorman, Marcal. He spoke excellent English, gave us advice on a local restaurant, and efficiently got us transportation to the restaurant. We really appreciated his service and are making reservations to stay there next year.
Fishermen Village is a small, cosy resort owned by Sunset Resorts out of Cancun. Compared to other resorts, Fisherman is quite small. This is to our liking as we do not need to walk far to get to activities that the resort offers. There are tow restaurants that seve meals. One opens at 6:30 pm for evening meals and the other is open during the day for snaks, tacos, hamburgers,etc. The staff at Fishermans is outstanding. Marciel at the front and Anslemo at the pool are two examples of the staff who sincerely take care of your needs. Eduardo and Umberto at the bars, and Carlos at the beach- these three staff members are also worthy of mention as they went out of their way to help us. Look for these staff members when you visit Fisherman Village. Great resort, great staff, great location, great size, and great scenery.
Absolutely love this place that welcomes back year after year. Great location and fabulous service. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. Always eager to make your stay a great experience. The beach access is out the front door literally. They have activities all week long if you choose to be involved. It's not a party atmosphere which we love. It's quiet and quaint and a perfect place for couples or families to spend quality time without large clouds and loud music.
