The only thing Fisherman's Village has to offer is the view. All of their staff seemed irritated to help. We have stayed at this resort 2 previous times in the past and we loved it. There were many activities, decent pricing, and shuttles to town and other sunset resorts. Now they charge outrageous prices for all shuttles, they will only... More

The location of this resort & spa is the best. The weather, the people and the whole atmosphere couldn't be better. The resort is showing some signs of wear and tear, but what resort right on the ocean, and I mean RIGHT on the ocean, isn't! We did notice some of the timeshare units were getting some welcoming upgrades. The... More

I stayed at Fishermens many times over the years. It humors me to read peoples reviews when they complain about water temperature or leaking condensation from an A/C unit; The room (condo) itself is the smaller and less important aspect of staying at this resort. Some people will always find something to whine about. Fishermens has a private beach that... More

This resort is wonderful! We love the smaller resort that has a pool close to the beach! The staff is friendly and we love Anselmo and Marciel, who are always willing to help and always remember our names! We have stayed at the bigger resorts and prefer the smaller hominess of this resort over the larger resorts. We also love... More

I visited this resort a few years ago and it was really nice. Clean, comfortable, and seemed to be in great shape. This visit was a disaster. Upon arrival we had no hot water. And after three days, we still had no hot water. The excuse was "the pump is broken" and "we are working on it". Also, the pool... More

We returned from here just a few weeks ago and must say that often pictures can be very deceiving. This certainly seemed to check all of the boxes but when we arrived, things changed. Upon arriving at the condo and checking all of the rooms, we noticed in the queen bedroom a puddle of water on the floor. Upon closer... More

This was most of our groups first trip to Mexico, and my first trip to Playa del Carmen. The purpose of our visit was to just get away for a week; a mix of relaxation and fun. I used RCI to book the resort and though many reviews were complaints gave an uneasy feeling, we kept an open mind. Our... More

It's been two years since our last visit to this facility. Every year we have visited, there has been some major issue upon our arrival. This year it was no different, in fact, it was the worst. Four families were unhappy with their situation. For us, it seemed as though registration didn't put us in the system so the folks... More
