We didn't stay here but stopped for a buffet lunch which was part of tour we took from Tulum by boat with Mexico Kan Tours. The food was very good - fresh fish, chicken, mashed potatoes, salad and other items

Although we did not stay here, we had a tour of the hotel and had dinner. The hotel is gorgeous. A great restaurant and the staff was incredibly friendly. I'd stay here next time!

I've stayed at Fisherman's Lodge 2 times now for a week of fishing. Mike has it all put together. The rooms are great, the food is unbeatable, and the service keeps you coming back. Appetizers are ready when you get back from the flats, dinner is a 3 course delight, and breakfast is made to order when you wake up.... More

Had lunch here. Met Mike/ owner manager who is a very helpful and knowledgeable person. The margarita's are made with fresh squeezed lime juice and are delicious! As is the mixto ceviche. If you are into fly fishing check this place out!

The food was good, the staff friendly, and the best thing for us in an unconnected place like Punta Allen is that they offered free WiFi (at least when there was electricity: After 6:30pm)

Visited this restaurant in February 2013. After visiting Mexico and eating in numerous restaurants I must say, that it hat the best guacamole and cheviche (fresh fish-lobster mix). Once you have managed to pass those bumpy roads from Tulum to Puna Allen, then Fisherman Fishing Lodge is a right place for you! PS! Restaurant manger Mike Ledezma is also very... More

Description
Fisherman Lodge, developing Punta Allen since 1954. In 1954, the Zapata Family Don Ivan , his wife and his son, Ivan Zapata left the island of Cozumel to look for better opportunities. The family went by boat to Siann Kaan where they reestablished their lives. They made a living by the sale of copra, coconut pulp. They would harvest their product and send it by a boat freighter from Cozumel.As time passed, Don Ivan constructed some small cabins the families would used as their tropical fishing ranch. There was a small kitchen that functioned as a restaurant serving the freshest seafood from the caribbean. Punta Allen was still an unknown tropical paradise used only by a few. Over time, Don Ivan and other families made the road from Tulum to Punta Allen with rustic tools using only machetes and shovels. An incredible achievement.In 1968, at the age of 18, Don Ivan formed the cooperative fishery with 15 other families. The title was given to them by the Lic. Javier Rojo Gomez, the governor of the state. They officially dedicated their lives to working with reef fishing, lobster fishing, fly-fishing, and eco - tours. For years Don Ivan and his family helped pioneer the tourist, particularly the fishing industry, along the Yucatan Peninsula. The original “Fisherman Lodge” ranch was one the first of it’s kind and operated successfully for years.The ranch was destroyed in 1995 by Hurricane Roxana, the family was devastated financially. Proudly after years of working to re open the ranch, the family Zapata would like to introduce their new Fisherman Lodge. They are excited share this grand experience with you. The Zapata family acknowledges they are privileged to have this wonderful fishery, Ascension Bay, in their backyard and they would like to share it with you. There are very few place in the world that offer the variety of species like the Bonefish, Tarpon, Snook and the most popular and most sought after Permit. When 3 of these species are caught in the same day this is called a Grand Slam. When all 4 of these species are caught in the same day this is called a Super Slam.
