Just returned from a week at Sunset Fisherman's as a part of an RCI exchange with friends. The location of this hotel can not be beat. It is right on the beach approximately 1 mile outside of downtown Playa del Carmen. The resort feels secluded and yet, you can take a cab or walk-downtown, if you so desire! Although there... More

VERY unfriendly place and bad food! Went to local Walmart and cooked in our room . Good thing was a short walk to outside mall with many wonderful restaurants to choose from with local vendors selling souveneirs. Drinks were watered down so back to Walmart for a bottle of tequila to bring down by pool. We never complained until we... More

The Sunset Fisherman Spa and Resort is just a wonderful experience. We have visited many times before and it always seems like our home away from home. From the moment we arrive, Marcial, Gamaliel and/or Anselmo are there to greet us with a handshake and an "abrazo" or hug. Their welcoming attitude and the fact that they remember you from... More

Was there 3 weeks ago with friends who are time share owners. Nice resort. Staff very friendly. Meals were adequate but not spectacular. We were not on the full inclusive plan as we also ate off-site. After initial mixup on rooms, everything went smoothly. Even got a comp. 2 day auto rental. Although info said WIFI in lobby, we were... More

We spent just a day here, relaxing by the pool and on the beach. Very nice smaller resort, and everyone seemed to know everyone else. We had lunch by the pool - restaurant was decent. Liked the smaller size, more casual and relaxed than some of the larger resorts. Very comfortable feel. We'll book a week here in the near... More

We had a studio on the second floor with a beautiful view of the beach and Caribbean Sea. The room was very comfortable and the furniture and amenities were all well maintained. The room was very quiet and little to no outside noise. We had the all inclusive plan so that the meals and drinks were pre paid. I recommend... More

Angel did a great job helping us and the others in our group acclimate to not just the resort but the whole playa del Carmen experience. His activities were fun and he worked real well with our family.
