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
Had a fantastic trip with my family/friend. The team is excellent - from Reception, Dining, Bar, and Entertainment! The grounds are beautiful and the view - awesome!! A crew worked tirelessly making sure the beach was the cleanest along the strip.- hard workers - all with a smile.
This resort is a gem! Have you wondered what it would be like to have your own apartment in Playcar? This place is it! The size of this resort allows you to have a very personal experience with the staff who are dedicated to making your vacation smooth and relaxing. Everything is just a few steps away.. the beach, the pools, bars, restaurants and Spa. 5th Avenue for shopping is a beautiful, shaded, safe 15 walk through exclusive Playcar.On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Doorman, Marciel and Concierge Armando.They both remembered us from previous visits! We were immediately checked in- very efficient and taken to our room. The whole facility is clean and fastidiously maintained.We stayed in a studio room with a two burner ceramic cook top, refrigerator, micro wave, coffee pot, porcelain dishes, cups and stainless flatware (very good quality 18/10 heavy weight) service for four. There was also an assortment of sauce pots, frying pan dish soap and fresh sponge. Our linens were excellent quality, pillows and king size mattress very comfortable. Pedro Arcos was our camaristo . He was friendly and respectful to our needs. We enjoyed the balcony with it's chairs and outdoor hot tub, anice way to end the day looking over the ocean! The air conditioning was comfortable too.The breakfast is served in the Terraza restaurant. You have your choice of indoor seating or lovely shaded terraced outdoor option, either way the buffet style serving offers a variety of choices with changes everyday. You'll be served coffees etc. by friendly, efficient staff with just the right amount of easy going personality- perfect to start the day. They will be happy to bring you a delicious Cappuccino, just ask! We looked forward to seeing Berenice in the morning, very sweet.This is the same restaurant where we enjoyed our dinners. Every night has a different themed menu and we enjoyed them all. Our waiter , Nelson Tuz was fantastic- he is very friendly, yet professional. He is knowledgeable about the offerings and quickly recognized our preferences. We asked for him each evening. Lunch is available at the covered dining room close to the beach, the Shrimp cocktails looked amazing! Look for Marlene,Adan, Carolina, Freddy, Flory, Eduardo. Also, Julio Rodriguez, member servicesDay time activities we took part in were Aqua aerobics led by the "Memory Makers" Nene and Victor. We really enjoyed them. Also, the Hobie Cat sailing. If you need help the Lifeguard is great. Enjoy!
Fisherman's is a quaint resort with a spectacular view. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is also top notch, and we were given a variety of international menus each night.
A special shout out to the following staff members:
Marlene - She was our main server for the evening dining (Tannaza A.W.). She was personable, funny and very accommodating. She was a friendly face we looked forward to seeing and she even helped us along with our Spanish!
Berenice - She was our breakfast server (Tannaza A.W.) on most mornings and she was so helpful and friendly.
If you had a zero I would have given You zero,This company should treat their members better,at arrival,we where put in a lockout room,with no table,chairs,kitchenette,nothing.We own a one bedroom,PLATINUM members,because we where traveling Sunday to Sunday we agreed to a studio,NOT to a hotel room,I have problems with my knees and back,travel with a service dog,and had requested be given a ground floor apt.instead where put on the third floor in a building with NO elevator,bravo!I was really upset,couldn't even sleep that night,next day Julio came to our room to tell us they had nothing open until Wednesday,so now we have to pack and unpack three times!,Second day we where moved to the suite until the other room was ready,unfortunately I was too stresses and tired and decided to stay there,lovely room we had stayed there before,but still in the same building with no elevator,the hallway leaving the building was filled with water and cement mix,going in and out I was afraid to fall,I have a reconstructed foot lots of metal on my left foot,reason why i needed a bottom apt. Additionally,the reservation was for FOUR people,my daughters couldn't come last minute thank God! The room they gave us had one bed only,small room with nothing,please get your act together,vacation is only once a year,thanks for ruining ours! If you own,they are renting to everyone so you may not get what you paid for,we paid $25k to buy into this place.wish they would buy it back!This used to be a great place,what a shame...ps-I was generous with this review.
Property location and beach is first class. Rooms and amenities are excellent. All inclusive food and drinks are mediocre and not at all worth the cost. We have been here before and only wish the food/drink situation was better!
