The location is awesome, right on the beach, so if you like to swim in the ocean this is a great spot. We found the food to be average and kind of high-priced, but we did alot of cooking in our room which saved $$. This is an older facility, and we had a couple of problems in our room;... More

We look forward all year to two weeks at Fishermen's! It is like going home..from year to year, Marcial recognizes us and welcomes us by name. Luis is always waiting to welcome everyone and in my case, has the cribbage board ready. They are all like family. The hotel itself is wonderful, always clean and so close for walking to... More

We rented two units, #340 and #341, from private owners which were listed on VRBO. We had two families with each family staying in one of the units. If you stay here, be aware that half the units in the complex are privately owned and half are owned by a timeshare company. Also, 2 of the 4 buildings are new... More

We stayed in December of '11 and absolutely loved everything about this place. From the super-friendly and helpful staff to the immaculate grounds, incredible beach, comfortable rooms, the stories of the people you meet and even the food. We opted to only do the meal plan for a couple of days b/c we really love to walk into Playa to... More

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and great welcomes from the bell hop and entertainment organizers...thanks Marcial and Luis!!

I stayed for a week November 26th thru December 3rd, 2011 and had the best time. The rooms are spacious and fully equipped. Some renovating is in the future, so the beds will be replaced. It's only a 15 minute walk either on the beach or on the beautiful street into Playa del Carmen. The waves are crashing just outside... More

Fishermen's Village is in a good location if you prefer quiet. The beach & outside areas are excellent, as are the staff. The "all inclusive" was optional for us & we were glad we didn't take it. The 15 minute walk to town, to experience a different restaurant every evening were the highlights of our trip. Our condo unit was... More

How could you ask for more. This condo hotel resort is located right on the beach with all services that can be desired on a Caribbean vacation. We have spend numerous weeks at this resort and find it to be very popular as it is usually fully booked and over booked. Most guests and members book a year in advance... More

Fisherman's Village is a wonderful place to stay while in Playa del Carmen. We stayed Sept 27-Oct 4 of this year. This resort has private condos as well as timeshares/hotel rooms. The hotel portion of the resort was closed (except for the pool and swim-up bar) for renovations during our stay, so we were the only ones there in a... More

Great place to stay. Away from the crowds but close enough to walk to downtown. The all inclusive option is not worth it. Eat at the local places downtown. Pool and beach are well maintained. Give the timeshare sharks a firm NO and they will leave you alone.
