First, the best part of Fisherman's is the food service staff and the doorman. I know I won't remember them all, but Victor, Alehandro, Hector, Aran and all of the wait staff bent over backwards with kindness, courtesy, and a happy smile to serve us. They all go above and beyond and made our vacation very memorable! Sergio at the... More

There are both positive and negative points about our visit to Fishermen's this year. We have been owners for seven years and this was the first time we experienced serious disappointment. First, the positive: The staff is wonderful. Every year we are so pleased to be greeted by Marcial, Bellman Extraordinaire! He is not only pleasant and always greets us... More

Staff are excellent. Location fabulous, sea and sand and within walking distance to town. Rooms have great sea views. Rooms clean. Only complaint is no chairs. Visitors are up placing towels on chairs at first light sounds to me like not enough chairs as i watched this scenary for 2 weeks.

Specail kudos to Anselmo and Carmelo. they are always ready to help with any issue that arises during our frequent stays. Willie and Nanci keep the grounds immaculate. The bellman (Marcelo?) is always waiting to help us when we arrive and the team manning the front desk are most helpful

The reservations are a nightmare even for owners as we are. Guests are traveling the night before and staying at local hotels in order to get to Fishermen's early Saturday to get a reasonable room as they always overbook. If you arrive late on Saturday be prepared for the worst and you will not be moved until someone moves out... More

This resort is close to downtown Playa and is right on the Beach. The staff are prepared to assist you in any way they can. Sairy at VIP services was exceptional in every way.

Let me start out with the terrible, and then move on to the wonderful. We are timeshare owners here since 2001 and it was a traumatic experience of not receiving what we were promised. My advice? Never buy timeshare in a country you're not from as there's little legal recourse if you get screwed, unless you have lots of $$$... More

We bought this timeshare over 6 years ago and have yet to be able to book a time we want to go because the place is fully booked. The chances of getting a place from January 1 to May 1 is almost impossible. Although it is a beautiful small resort it was truly a waste of money. What probably happens... More
