“smaller resort with beautiful beach”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is a smaller size cozy resort about 40-50 rooms???
Some room has direct access to the beach.
The resort is located within gated strata community, so it is Not busy like being right middle of downtown.
They provide us a free shuttle to downtown Playa Del Carmen, it's only 3-5min. away.
You can both enjoy at private beach with no crowed and colse enough for shoping and more.
Plus, it is only 10 min. away from Xcaret and Xplor.

This is a small resort but one of the best we have stayed at. You are just steps away from the beach. They have a heated pool and a very large hot tub that is great to relax in and meet other guests. The meal plan is breakfast which is good then either lunch of dinner, the Grill and the Italian restaurant for the evening meals were good. The resort is in a gated residential area, very safe to walk into 5th Avenue to shop and try the local restaurants. At the end of the week, we realized that the outside lunch restaurant was accommodating enough to prepare any simple item you asked for. There were two shuttles into town in the morning. It would have been nice if there would have been at least one in the afternoon. I don't know if the shuttles were available during that time.

Room Tip: We had a 2 bedroom lock off unit that was very nice, one side with 2 queen beds, small setting area...

Having been in the resort management business, we appreciated the cordial and efficient staff at Sunset Fisherman Village Resort in Playa del Carmen, and their attention to detail. We love the smaller, resort setting - this was our second, consecutive year with children and grandchildren - beautiful, warm waters with beachfront that is meticulously maintained and a lifeguard on duty. David & Carlos keep everyone busy throughout the day with various activities. What a great diversion for this Wisconsin girl in winter - swimsuit can be the attire for the day, eating & drinking under shaded trees while experiencing the warm breezes & ocean views, returning to a clean room with those great personal touches from Maria. Waitstaff is excellent headed by Ivan.

Besides being right on one of the most beautifyl beaches in the world, Fishermens is one of those spots that is very well run. The staff make it just an amazing experience. Always smilling, they are there for us. Marcial, we love. He is the backbone of the customer experience. His memory for people and there families is amazing. Thank you Anselmo, for being so easy going in a difficult job. Carlos and David, thank you for the great activities through out the week. We love the energy of your water arobics classes. Thank you to Nancy who is forever improving the appearance of everything around the sight. But special thanks to Sairy, who took us under her wing to make our lunching experience the best. So many great staff, so little space. Hugs to all!!

This was my second time at Fishermen's Spa and Resort. My wife and I enjoyed our stay which was made even more pleasant by the wonderful service by the staff. We particularly enjoyed our breakfast amidst the palm trees which were strategically located for the view along with the great service. We had Antonio serving us every morning. He did a great job and made us feel right at home.

Just spent another glorious two weeks at Sunset Fishermen. Everything was super. The food has improved and the staff is wonderful. This year I met Brenda at the Spa who looked after my pulled shoulder rotator cuff from a fall on ice three weeks before arriving. After four sessions with Brenda it is almost back to normal. Marciel and Pablo are always ready to help you with any other requests. Looking forward Christmas at Sunset Fishermen, although I hope it is warmer than this week.

Room Tip: They are all wonderful. Over the years I have stayed in most of them.

I love the beach at this resort and sitting pool side with a cold drink. But what I love even more is the people who keep the resort running. They really give the feeling that you're not just a guest and more like a friend. The four that really went above and beyond in my opinion were Sayri, Angel, Ricardo and Raul. I hope I see all of them again when I return to Mexico. One area for improvement would be more shaded sitting areas. Bonus is how short of a walk it is to town.
