The beach meets the street in Playa del Carmen, a seaside town that’s equal parts trendy and tropical. This cheerful destination in the beautiful Quintana Roo region, on Mexico’s east coast, will make you want to shop until you drop on the beautiful sands of its namesake shores. Thanks to buzzing, central Quinta Avenida, you can hit countless boutiques and party ‘til the wee hours, at any of numerous nightclubs. But should you prefer a lazier stay, those Caribbean waves are just as enticing and never too hard to find.
This coastal-meets-cosmopolitan vibe carries on over to Sunset Fishermen Beach Resort, a gated community adjacent to Playa. Not only does this property offer a staff that’s eager to point you to the best local spots, but it’s decked out with sunny and stylish details. Within it, you’ll find a pool, a spa, a yacht club, aqua aerobics and non-motorized water-sport activities; cooking classes and trivia events also take place here. Of course, you’ll still want a taste of the downtown scene. Simply hop into a cab, for the short ride to the heart of the city.
Good to know
The all-inclusive basis includes unlimited food and beverages, an activities program, Wi-Fi in the lobby, a juice-therapy menu, non-motorized water activities, a bicycle tour, an in-room mini bar replenished daily and room service from 7am until 10:30pm.
Our advertised lowest rate is available August through October, but every bookable date is still the lowest price for that room, on that night, that you’ll find anywhere online.
Your Sunset Fishermen abode boasts original art and sculptures, plus a fabulous view of the jungle or the Caribbean Sea. You’ll have one king or two double beds, a double sofa bed and a lagoon- or ocean-view terrace, as well.
There are two eateries and two bars at the resort, to cover your dining-and-drinking bases. La Terraza opens daily to serve international cuisine, starting with a continental breakfast bright and early, followed by a breakfast buffet. Lunch is also buffet style, while Italian dinner is à la carte and very slightly dressier, with shoes and shorts required. Otherwise, head to Fishermen Grill for à la carte breakfast, dinner or snacks, or grab a drink at the lobby or pool bars.
Stop by the property’s spa for a relaxing therapy. The outpost of local chain Ya’ax Ché Spa is all about the pampering, whether of your mind, body or spirit.
If you can’t decide whether you’d like to be in the middle of the action or off in your own little community, Sunset Fishermen gives you both. You’re within the gates of Playacar, with access to a private beach, plus tons of activities: cooking lessons, trivia contests, non-motorized water sports, kayak trips, (complimentary) bike rides. Hop in your car or a cab, though, and you’ll be pounding the Quinta Avenida pavement in no time. Also nearby are a golf course and several Mayan archaeological sites.
How to Get There
We've been going every other year here. So far, the only differences we've seen with our 5 yr extra maintenance fees are new fridge, possibly new microwave and finally wireless internet that goes up to the room and not limited to the lobby. But it's still pretty slow and sporadically disconnects.
All else more or less is the same. Happy with the small place but I'm not sure the property is investing anymore into it and if any, we got put on a sales presentation that was a waste of time. It was framed as "new benefits per your contract" but in actually there are no changed to our contract. Usual sleazy tactic.
Excellent ,the staff are 10+ the mos beautiful people i meet , I feel like home , i been traveler for the las 7 years some time 7 country in one year , i find nice and beautiful people around the world , but the staff in fisherman hotel are the best every single one are the best .
I have been here berore. It’s lovely, a great small hotel right on the beach. I have nothing bad to say only good things to say. The condo rooms are spacious and are spotless. The staff are great too. Everything pleases and nothing disappoints. Highly recommended.. The only small improvement point is the oven could do with more burners and the kitchen could be better equipped. A kettle would be a good addition.
