Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Sunset Fishermen Beach Resort garners high marks for its attentive service, with many guests appreciating the staff's extra touches, although there's room for improvement in some areas. The resort's amenities, including its proximity to the beach and range of activities, are celebrated, despite some hiccups with poolside furnishings. Spacious and clean rooms are noted, though noise can be an issue. While opinions on value vary due to additional fees, the prime location near shopping and Playa del Carmen, coupled with a tranquil atmosphere and commendable cleanliness, make it a popular choice among travelers.

While Sunset Fishermen is not new to us (we have been members for more than 20 years), our visit in June 2023 was special. Marcial Canul always recognizes us as soon as we arrive from the airport. His memory and quality of costumer service are out of this world. Thank you Marcial for being the friend we are always looking forward to seeing as soon as we get to our home away from home in Playa del Carmen. One of us has strict dietary restrictions, which makes it challenging eating out. Well, as soon as Michelle Lucio, the Member Services Manager informed Kevin Aguilar, the Food & Beverages Manager right on the day of our arrival about our dietary needs, he ensured that alternatives from the menu were offered to us meeting our eating requirements. Every time we were greeted at our table by the most friendly and professional team of servers. Noé, Guillermo, and Samara were always ready to suggest the most delicious meals and beverages and offer alternatives from the themed-menu that changed every day, while accommodating our restrictive regime. Every morning and evening, any of the outstanding team of cooks: Josué, Prudencia, or Vanessa would craft an incredible edible experience that indulged our senses. Chef José Adamaro made sure everything was safe for us and that every single detail was covered for us to enjoy a great culinary experience. One of us happened to celebrate their birthday during our visit at Sunset Fishermen. The whole team went above and beyond to organize a memorable surprise dinner party at our table. Even a special cake was baked so that all of us could enjoy it! The whole team participated singing the Mexican birthday song, “Las mañanitas.¨ It felt like a family party… our Sunset Fishermen family. During the day, every time we relaxed by and in the pool, Wendy González and Víctor Chi, the stellar bartenders, took care of our hydration levels preparing delicious and refreshing libations, including alcohol free ones! Our vacation could not be completed without the mandated visit to the spa. The entire team of masseurs and masseuses truly makes all tension vanish and the combination with aromatherapy and the soothing music complements a deep relaxing experience. We are grateful to the Sunset Fishermen family for providing extraordinary quality service. We can’t wait for our visit this year! See you soon!

We have been coming to Fisherman ‘s village with family for many years. Our kids were very small when we first started coming and now as adults they still love coming here with us. The staff is definitely the best thing about this place. Marcial is the first person we see and he is wonderful. Michelle is always available for questions and any help we need. Olivia from house keeping is so warm and caring and patient with my poor Spanish. Daniela and Azucena are great with the activities department. The location of the resort can’t be beat with its situation on a beautiful beach and in the lovely community of Playacar. Unfortunately, many of the changes we have seen haven’t been for the better. We really miss the Sunday welcome parties that used to help the guests meet each other and were so much fun. In the past, European plan meant that you could have breakfast and one other meal per day and was much more affordable. The all inclusive price now is ridiculous especially for someone who doesn’t drink. I also don’t understand why the owners don’t provide more chairs and umbrellas/ cabanas on the beach. There are not enough during high season and It puts guests at odds with each other and leads some guests to being very unpleasant . We still love our Fisherman’s family and will continue to bring our family here, we just hope that Sunset Group will continue to keep the resort functioning well and take care of their wonderful staff.

My husband and I have been going to Fisherman’s for 20+ years. Although the facility is aging we love meeting our friends there each winter. Martial and Michelle are the best ambassadors for Sunset. Rigobuerto and Guiermo are fantastic waiters and Jazmi and Wendy are great bartenders who keep us hydrated during daily pool time. The beach restaurant has doubled prices so we rarely eat there. There is a new general manager and a new older front desk employee. They are unfriendly and rude. We far preferred the previous employees. Seems to be high staff turnover.

The resort location is a gem. Have been to Fisherman's several times in the past and the biggest complaint is the 'reserving' of chairs/loungers with towels. People were placing towels to reserve chairs by the pool and on the beach at 3 a.m! When this was brought to the attention of the front desk they said that something would be done about this. Nothing happened! Absolutely ridiculous that people would have the nerve to do this and expect that other resort guests would find this acceptable. Security should be removing towels within one hour if no one is sitting and ensure that resort guests were "saving' spots for others even though often times the reserved seats were not occupied until hours after the towels were initially placed. Total turn off about this ongoing situation that is perpetuated by resort guests/owners who believe that they can and do what they want. Lounge chairs on beach are horrible. Not enough umbrellas for the beach and around the pool. Mattress pads on lounge chairs are old and need to be replaced.

We have stayed at the Sunset properties in Cancun; this was our first time in PDC. This is a smaller property, which we love. Very nice, quiet resort. The beach was very nice, somewhat limited beach and pool chairs (early bird gets the worm!). The location of this property is closer to the end before the ferry pier which I loved; it's kind of tucked away from the much larger and busier resorts further down. We were AI; the food we thought was excellent. The lunch menu has a very good variety; dinner menus changed daily. Breakfast was pretty typical of resort buffet, but very good and presentation of all meals were excellent. One bar near the beach, sometimes leaving a longer wait, but the staff works their butts off. Our room was great, very clean and spacious. We somehow ended up with a 2 BR; (only my husband and I) and this would have been a dream with our family. We were on the 3rd floor, so lots of stairs so if mobility issues be aware. We had probably the best mattress I've had anywhere in Mexico! There was entertainment one evening during our week in the lobby which was very good, but would love to see more! We are not night life people so we were fine, and there seems to be plenty to offer off property close by. We missed having any background music during dinner (not live just music). All of the staff were great! Overall seemed to be an older/adult population of guests; however upon our last day more families with young children were coming in. Definitely not a 18-20 something spring break property! Which is good for us!

Beautiful small resort that provides a personal experience for many. Rooms are not very sound proof … which hindered our sleep most nights. Food was average. Staff was terrific. A great stay with an incredible view from most rooms.

Overall another great experience. Food, with exception of amazing breakfast buffet, is not great. It’s very bland, which is surprising. The servers are great and always do their very best to serve not so great dinner meals. Out seven dinners, we probably had one dinner that was good, not great. We meet new guests down here every year and have a great time hanging out and trying new restaurants in town. The location is fantastic, so close to the water. Not matter what room we get, we always have a great view of the ocean. The long term staff is always great and remembers us every time we come.

I love staying at Fisherman’s! Excellent location, beach front hotel ! Friendly staff! Marcial will welcome you at entrance with a big smile! Michelle will go over and beyond to make sure your accommodations will meet your expectations and needs, Olivia and other staff in house keeping is always friendly and work hard to make sure after a day at the pool you come back to your suite to a clean and tidy room with an adorable towel animal on your bed. The activity girls always keep you active with fun activities. I can’t say anything bad about this fabulous hotel!
