I have literally travelled the world from adventures in true backpacker style as well as luxury business travel...but Fisherman's is one place that seems to keep calling me back. This is the 4th time i've been to Fisherman's and once again the experience was just as fab as the first time I ever went there. I've been with friends before and also just escaped London in the winter and jetted off on my own.... well you're never really on your own as you meet great people and more often than not see a familiar face from past trips...... it seems like everyone returns at some point!
There's allot I could write but the best things are..... gorgeous friendly staff who can be as much a part of your trip as you want them to be - they are really good at knowing when you want a chat or are just as happy being totally in the background when you're happy with your own company....either way they really make this place and are the biggest reason so many people go back. The service is great and they can help you organise anything during your stay.
The rooms are excellent.... as long as you're not expecting soul less 5 star luxury.... this place is what i'd call 'boutique back-packing'. The outdoor bathrooms are one of the best features... the rooms are spotless and have real characture.
The beach is a great stretch....ideal for a run at sun-rise or sun-set. The tides go in and out so some days you can't swim for a couple of hours..... but it soon comes back in so it's not a huge issue.
Sun-downers and sunsets are the best time of day....they have a great chill-out area where you can sip your gin and tonics and every single evening the sunsets are truely amazing. You never have to wait long before someone says... what would you like a drink...! and they play really cool 'chill-out' tunes which is a nice touch.
The food is great.... the seafood bbq which you can order in advance is a great thing to do if you're in a group.
What I love especially is the kind of people that this place seems to attract.... very cool, very chilled and lot's of fun.
I'm homesick for Fisherman's now i'm back in the grey rain of London! can't wait to go back
