An all-inclusive beachfront getaway to a suite in a gated community, with a bike tour and other extras

The Lowdown

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.

Julio Rodriguez was exceptional. WE arrived and he escorted us to our suite ,checked things found one bedroom door did not lock . He called maintenance and stayed until door was working about 1 hour... in the meantime toilet over flowed . Julio called for help but he as well helped with the water clean up,As we were waiting in the lobby to leave he checked our rooms and found a couple of things we had left behind..All staff from front desk,concierge, restaurant staff,bar staff and porters were great. .My party was well pleased

How would you like to vacation at a place where every single staff member is cheerful, courteous, efficient, and loyal? That's Fishermen's. Marcial, the bell captain, greeter, and elder statesman will greet you at the front entrance and will do so by name if he has met you even only once before. And if he's met your kids, he will ask how they are doing, also by name. Need any advice about transportation, places in the area, or otherwise? He will give it to you or get it for you. Anselmo, another fixture at Fishermen's, will help you with your luggage, your towel needs, and will brighten your day. Karen and Julio will check you in efficiently, help you with change and exchange, and check you out.

Then there is Marlene, the maitre d' and her beautiful smile. Freddy the bartender has the quickest wrists in QR. Adan, Genaro, and Guillermo will serve you with a smile.

And everyone will put up with your attempts at Spanish and even give you lessons if you ask.

The staff are a big part of all the things we look forward to when coming to Fishermen's.
