We were able to spend the week at fishermans recently. We really love this place. The complex isn't fancy, but we love how it's small and more relaxed than most in the area. Here you don't have to battle crowds for pool/beach seating every morning. Even though it's not fancy, they keep the rooms clean and the staff is excellent.... More

Ale Rescala and Angel Calzada were very great activity directors! Always keeping people active, and having fun, always smiling, knew me by name after the first day, always willing to help me with things such as wind surfing. The food was great, very nice wait staff, everyone did a great job thanks guys!

We would highly recommend Fishermen Beach Resort. The location on the beach was perfect for a family get-away. The staff was very helpful, properties were well maintained, and the activities were geared toward families. Our kids are 9 & 12. I would like to especially recognize Angel Calzada, Pool Concierge. Angel did an excellent job in coordinating activities for both... More

My husband and I chose this resort because the online pics looked amazing. Suffice to say pictures can be deceiving. The room we were given was old and worn. The shower drain was clogged, although they fixed it promptly. The food was just ok. The lunch menu was the same EVERY day! Dinner was good. The liquor and wine was... More

One of the charms of Fisherman's is the stability of the staff. We were so excited to see a few of our favorite servers still there. Although it appeared Fisherman's was slightly understaffed this trip. I am continually amazed at the smiles, and commitment to excellence by some of the wait staff, even at the end of a shift.

Title: A relaxing, friendly, laid-back atmosphere in a beautiful location ID#: 263854162 Just returned from a most pleasant week at Fisherman's; our third visit in the past three years. As usual, its perfect location--right on the ocean, a mile from downtown Playa del Carmen--ideal. One of the best aspects of this resort is its small size and consequent closeness with... More

This continues to be a favorite. With over a dozen stays we continue to enjoy the resort, the people and the atmosphere. This we we needed a special request due to an injury. Miguel was helpful and offered alternatives for us to choose. We appreciated it very much. Many of the staff continue with the resort and call us by... More

Staff very deserving of exceptional accolades! As everyone has noted Alejanda and Angel, Marcial Anselemo. As long time vacationers to this is property someone that gets missed is Vicki of the spa staff, always an amazing massage and so caring and yet gets at every last bit of stress to make your holiday as relaxed as you can possibly imagine....

Fishermen has been our annual spring jaunt for many years. It is our favorite place to stay as it is a small boutique resort on the beach that is away from the noise but still very convenient (easily walkable) to the restaurants & shops of Playa. It is also like coming home, as several of the long term staff, especially... More

We have noticed since our last visit two years ago, it is continually looking run down. Our room which had a beautiful view, was for sale by owner, had upholstered furniture that was there 20...
