I just had to write this and clear the air and all the bad press this wonderful resort has taken for some time. We booked room 341 through the owner directly, he is not a timeshare, he owns his two condos. What a great guy David is and the rate was fantastic!! After reading all the bad reviews because of the timeshare people I was very nervous as to what we would expect but I must be honest and say everyone here was great!!!
David arranged all our transfers and the ride to the resort was quick and efficient thru Sunrise. The check in smooth, Piero at the front desk helped us for anything we needed our whole 8 days at Fishermans.
The Penthouse condo was gorgeous and the views from both levels was so beautiful, every morning and night. Karen at concierge aka Timeshare Rep gave us much needed info the first day and NEVER forced the timeshare sell on us.
The resort itself is intimate and relaxing, most of the staff especially the Famous Luis were nice and pleasant to be around. The pool refreshing, the beach so turquoise the water, so what about the sand bags, they are slowly rebuilding their property, and its a work of nature with man's helping hand.
We shopped for groceries at Walmart, Liquer too--if you can believe, had many lunches at the resort, drinks were good, not too creative though, just basic pina coladas etc.
Enjoyed having breakfast on our TWO balconies, cocktails at sunset and dinner every night except one along 5th Avenue.
Spent a day at Cozumel, rented a car, got stuck is a huge rainstorm at Coconuts and had a blast there---you have to visit and see their "family photo albums"--you will die!!!
Fisherman's condos is a great location to shops, restaurants, the ferry--perfect...so great we rebooked for December the minute we got back.
Now to tell the truth about the timeshares--- are there sellers and buyers there--sure, everyone looking was also taking all the free trips, and massages and dinners. If this is how you need your vacation to be, and you want those things no charge then you will be dragged along for many hours--we saw it. But only one "No Thank you" and we were never bothered again for 8 days --amazing, the way this works--NOTHING remember is really for free.
So book this little slice of peaceful heaven if you can, relax, make friends, spend time with your loved ones and truly take a vacation in paradise...........
