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
This place was the perfect destination for our family trip. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. The entire meal and drink staff was great. Omar and Belem were excellent with providing fun activities all throughout the day. Absolutely no complaints about the resort and staff it was all perfect. The downtown is about a 10 minute walk away so it’s easy access to all of the shops and places.
Our family loves this resort. Specifically because it is smaller and quieter. Beautiful place and excellent staff! It feels cozy and safe. We love that everything is close by - especially when travelling with our 3 children. Our 2 bedroom suite was spacious and clean and comfortable. It is an older resort so the rooms are a little outdated but that doesn’t bother us too much. We had plenty of room and it was always immaculate. The restaurant had been renovated and is really nicely updated. The outdoor seating is serene and surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The pool AND ocean are at your doorstep, what more could you ask for.
The staff is what really makes this place special to us. We loved seeing familiar faces of Marcial, and Marlene. All the restaurant staff was amazing (so hard to list everyone’s names, but the wait staff and chefs were always attentive and smiling and they were so helpful with accommodating our kids’ allergies). Yomara at the gym always went out of her way to get me a fresh towel each time I visited. Omar and Belem were awesome with the activities and involving guests, even taking special photos of Father’s Day. Miguel went out of his way to make sure we could watch the Toronto Raptors win the championship by installing a TV in the lobby so we could watch with our new vacation buddies. All in all, a fantastic trip and we can’t wait to visit again!! Thank you to everyone for making it special :)
I have been visiting Playa del Carmen since 2007! 5th time and despite TV may show some violence I kindly hesitated to go but I decided to go and I had a great time! We walked, ride taxis. Just make sure to compare prices if you buy tours because they may take advantage of you.
My family and I absolutely love this place. First off, it’s very safe in the gated community of Playacar. After that, the list is endless to the benefits of Sunset Fisherman. It’s literally on the beach...no walking a quarter mile to the beach from one of the massive resorts. It’s small, so again...no walking forever back and forth from your room and you really get to know the staff and other people that are staying there if you want to. It’s walkable to town and everything that has to offer. The food and drinks are solid. The rooms are clean, contemporary and well maintained. I could go on and on but I also want to plug the staff one more time...they are so kind so engaging to the patrons. Belem in entertainment was amazing! She was so kind to my kids. The other staff that I can’t remember the names at this moment are also great...they have been there for years, we see them every year we go...I think that speaks for the quality of the place and management. Go to Sunset Fisherman, you will love it. this last trip we actually had a couple people walking down the beach ask us the name of the place because they wanted to stay there next time they came cause it looked so inviting, easy, and charming. As you can see from the pics...it’s right on the water. The first pic was from our room
Smaller resort with very friendly and helpful staff to help make your stay enjoyable. We have been going there for years because of the laid back atmosphere compared to the bigger resorts.
You have access to any beach or area activities you want or simply relax on the beach. The town of Playa del Carmen is a short 15 minute walk with a lot of shopping and local cuisine. The resort is in a gated and very secure and safe area of Playa del Carmen
