“What a GREAT place!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

What a great week we had! There were 4 of us, my husband and I, our son and his girlfriend. Our days started with Sergio Perez Cocinero customizing our breakfasts for us, Luis and Jose E. serving us at our meals and David Garcia planning activiites for us. It was a perfect week - so perfect we only left the resort once for a local beach and came right back. The beach at Sunset Fisherman was so much better! David does everything: sand castles with kids, water aerobics to taking you sailing. The food was really good and we loved the all inclusive plan - it covered all of our drinks and the swim up to bar was fun. We also enjoyed the lobby bar! You have to try this place - it's great!

Room Tip: We found our room in the main building to be a perfect location. We were on the third floor corner...

that you are not as close as everyone tells you to Playa del Carmen. While we own at Tres Rios we went to see the sister property to see if it would work for us. it is quaint and fairly quiet. where you get breakfast is a concern. there are very few tables and if everyone is getting up at the same time you could be in for a wait.

David is one of the most friendly and helpful staff person at Sunset Fisherman. His skills are so diverse. From Volleyball, aqua aerobics, volleyball, soccer, sailing, surfing and even Bongo. David makes all activities fun. He even participated and helped my daughter build a great sand castle. Fisherman Village has the best beach in Plays Del Carmen. The weather was great too.

Room Tip: If you can request the ocean view that would be a huge plus

We travel to Fishermans every spring and it's the highlight of our year. The resort is beautiful and perfectly sized for our family vacation, but the thing that makes it so special is the staff. It starts with the bell men Manuel who has been there for years and always gives us a warm welcome that makes us feel at home. The activities director Luis is just awesome and fun to be around him. It's one part of the vacation that the kids most look forward to. The interactions between his assistant and equipment check man Anselmo always bring a smile to our face and provide wonderful memories for years to come. The dining staff is also superb. Manuel, the maitradee, routinely goes above and beyond to make us feel at home. Whether its a special meal of hot dog and fries for the kids, helping us with large party reservations, Mayan coffee, or accommodating a special request, he is a wonderful person who we always look forward to seeing and making us feel like we are at a home away from home. I hope the management team at sunset world realizes the importance of these employees and rewards them accordingly. Every time we share the beauty of Fishermans with friends, the beach, pool, and setting always garner comment, but the staff always leave us all coming back for more. A beautiful resort with fantastic staff equals a 5 star from us!

We are owners at the Sunset Lagoon. But we enjoy the quaint atmosphere and superb service that we always receive at Fishermen’s Village. So we tend to spend most of our vacations there. The staff is outstanding. Especially Jonathan, Jose and Angel Chi. They made our vacation a complete success. Thank you!

Spent a week with friends (who own) at Sunset Fisherman and it was Paradise. The resort is small so not "overcrowded" like some of the other big resorts. It's tucked away in a nice quiet exclusive neighborhood. The staff was very helpful and friendly. (Especially, Jonathan and Jose (at the bar)). Had a slight problem with some machinery noise outside my bedroom, but it was fixed immediately (and this was the middle of the night!). It is within walking distance to shops and great resturants.

This trip was great. The ocean was clear and warm. The property was very pleasant. It was clean and the staff could not have been more pleasant.
Karen, the concierge, was very informative about activities. She was there all week to answer any questions and take care of all situations. She was very good.
Jesus, the bartenter, after being taught the drink recipe that one of us liked, always kept them coming. The two activities directors, Luis and David, were always right there trying to get us to do things. Luis gave us a class to use the Hobie Cat. It was a lot of fun. I went out every day after that. Luis came out on a kayak after the Hobie Cat tipped over and helped me get it upright. I was so thankful being a beginner. I might have been out there all day.
It was always a pleasure to go down to breakfast and have the smilling Chef Rigo create an omelet to order.
The waiters Juan and Richardo were always peasant and helpful whether at breakfast , lunch or dinner. They even brought drinks out onto the beach. Juanita, the housekeeper, always did a wonderful job keeping our room organized.

I had heard bad things about the food but did not find the food bad all. In fact I was very pleased. I am somewhat of a foodie. We always had breakfast there. We either had lunch and dinner on different days. I only had one dish all week that was not good. It was a spring vegetable risotto. It tasted good was too dry. It all stuck together.
The property is in a great location. You can walk to town on the beach, about 15 minutes. It is in a very safe area. Four of my sisters came to the same place in April and also loved it.
