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 is our first visit to the Fisherman Beach Resort after staying at 8 other resorts/homes. We were pleased with the hospitality, service, rooms and cuisine. We enjoy the sights and sounds of 5th Ave so the location was ideal for our needs. We were also pleased with the intimate setting, a small resort allows guest to meet and enjoy the company of other visitors. A wonderful holiday and we expect to return.
Airport Transportation pay by credit card as if you pay in pesos as we did, the rate is subject to whatever the higher exchange rate is and is subjective to who you are dealing with.
Location was very convenient. nice walk to the main shops and action, but yet nestled in a quiet more residential area.
Wonderful resort with very friendly staff, great service and good food. Location was within walking distance of 5th Avenue. Resort had a variety of excursions, and there were more choices available in town. Will definitely return.
We’re just finishing up a week at Fishermen’s and are already looking forward to the next time we are here! Relaxing in the sun, kayaking, swimming, daily walks into town, and exploring the local attractions . . We cannot think of a better way to spend a week on the Carribean Sea. The staff at Fishermen’s is so warm and friendly that we immediately felt right at home. There are so many choices at Playa del Carmen but staying at Fishermen’s is the best!!
Overall it was a great experience and I really enjoyed my stay at the resort.I would like the resort to consider adding music to the venue throughout the day with karaoke possible. Late evening adding a dance floor for couples to dance the night away.
