This place was excellent! Best Beach in Playa Del Carmen with the BEST service ever! I want to give a special "Thank You" to Carlos, the Activities Director, Jorge, Benjamin, Jose, and Ricardo, waiters and bartenders for the excellent service to all of us! We had SO much fun!

My wife and I have been coming here for the past 4 years. Twice we have brought my Son and his family with 2 little boys. Our grandsons love it here! From the time they get out of the Shuttle Van from the airport, they have a smile on their face! All of the staff work very hard to make sure you and your family are having a good time. Our waiter Alejando, went out of his way to help us learn more about the Mexican History, and helped us improve our Spanish. We looked forward to seeing him every day. We also enjoy working with David Gerardo the Actives person. We have gotten to know him well in the past 2 years. Yes, the beach is GREAT, and the rooms are nice, but it is the STAFF that keeps us coming back year after year.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms on the 1st Floor when we have children, or you can ask for rooms that have eleva...

I want to thank everyone who waited on us on our recent vacation at Sunset Fisherman Village in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. It was an awesome time and a great vacation. The people there were great, inuding Alejando, David Gerardo, Sairy, Consuela. They were awesome and the language barrier was not a problem at all. The best pool and beach and we loved it. Thank you all. Ross and Janette Bender

After four days at the Krystal Resort in Cancun, we drove down to Sunset Fisherman's Spa and Resort. It was far nicer. It's smaller and far friendlier. We went to nearby Xelha water park which I recommend and the Aztec ruins at Chichen Itza. The room and view was outstanding. You can walk to the ferry that goes to Cozumel.

The massage was excellent, beach was great. Surf was similar to Cancun. You feel safe walking to town, since it's a gated community, and you'll see small ruins in the little parks along the way, and beautiful trees and houses.

Room Tip: I think we had the best one. It was on the second floor in the section away from the restaurant and...

My husband and I rented a condo and we have to say its probably one of our favorite vacations yet! The location of this facility is perfect, so easy to get to 5th avenue for shopping or dining and easy to hot 307 and head to Cancun or Tulum. The food is not so great but the service, drinks, beach, and pool are amazing! Very low key resort with the option to add all inclusive for very cheap. I highly recommend this place, the beach was breathtaking, you can see Cozumel, and they rake the beach each morning which is more than anyone can ask for. Love the low key atmosphere with very few children present (although we did go in the off season), and again the location to everything in and around Playa del Carmen is perfect!

The Fisherman's Village in Playa del Carmen is truly paradise. From the minute Marcial greets us at the beautiful entrance to this mini resort, we are treated like family! David, the activities director is enthusiastic and a great hobie cat sailor. His tour of the coast in a Hobie Cat sail boat is simply divine. Of course , Anselmo at the activities booth is just full of conversation and always with a willingness to serve. Ricardo at the Bar will mix or make your drinks as you like. The location to Quinta Avenida in Playa is so accessible and convenient. The beach itself is pure paradise with the crystalline Caribbean at your doorstep. What an awesome time to have returned to our second home! We simply cannot forget Massiel, the host at the restaurant, who is so courteous and service oriented along with Sary, at the front Desk supporting the whole operation. Thanks Fisherman Family for such an incredible trip!!

Visited a dozen+ times over 8 years; facility slowly improving. Beach better than ever!!! Rooms--nice new sheets, pillows, spread, sofa/ chair upholstery, drapes, wall paint, flat screen TV, showers and hot tub actually hot; all beach/patio furniture needs replacing and food still mediocre, but cook for yourself or enjoy sweet 15 minute stroll into town 2 x daily--you need the exercise. Beach is better than ever--perfectly smooth white sand w warmest water ever, clear turquoise gentle waves. Pleasant service, easy trip, easy stay, perfect location.

Room Tip: Walk onto beach from 1st floor rooms.
