This is actually a 2 BR/2.5 BTH (see listing 306688 for more reviews) unit that we can lock-off the smaller bedroom/bath for ONE COUPLE ONLY. This will provide you 1000 sq feet with amazing views from the living room, balcony, master suite, kitchen and dining! This Million-dollar view penthouse is a one-of-a-kind a kind, 2-level 1 Bedroom penthouse on the beach, not far-far away like some resorts. It literally takes you less than a minute after stepping out of the condo to have your toes in the sand! We just started marketing the penthouse to couples, so you can see the reviews on VRBO listing 306688 for this unit.
The private balcony, living room, dining room, kitchen and master suite all have this wonderful pool and beachfront view. The bed is a comfortable memory foam king with an attached en-suite bath.
What makes Sunset Fisherman's Village a stand-out amongst the other condos and resorts? I would have to say it's because it's SMALL (there are just 50 units) and yet it's full service. There is no other condo complex in Playa del Carmen that offers as much as Sunset Fisherman's does right on site.
1) Free use of bikes, boogie boards, kayaks, snorkel gear
2) Full service- yes, bellman, concierge, front desk, maids, waitress service at the beach and restaurant, masseuse in the spa
3) Safe- yes Sunset Fisherman's is located in the gated community of Playacar Phase 1. Security 24-7
4) Location, Location, Location. The Playacar location is close to 5th Ave, but far enough away. Yes, there are resorts on the beach smack dab in the middle of 'the action' but do you want parties and clubs keeping you up at 2-3 am? Our resort is peaceful yet just a 3 min bike ride to the action or a 10 min beach stroll away.
5) WiFi for a small fee
6) Swim up pool bar
7) Optional meal and drink plan (call for more info)
8) Activities- yoga, water aerobics, tequila tasting, pottery painting, etc
9) Did I mention as much Rest and Relaxation that you can stand?
10) Did I mention romance? The staff at Fisherman's can set up a dinner for two experience right on the beach
I know you have the option to choose an all-inclusive resort, but don't and here is why. The AI resorts are over-crowded with over 300 rooms and it will take you 5-10 minutes to walk to the beach from your room. You end up eating at the 2-3 restaurants and having the same lousy buffet food day after day and you'll be lucky to have a peek-a-boo view of the ocean after leaning way over on your balcony! My penthouse is the actual unbelievable view you see in all the photos! Don't feel like standing in line for your meals? You can choose to eat at the restaurant on-site, make delicious meals in our beautiful kitchen or walk 10 minutes to 5th Avenue and have hundreds of restaurants to choose from. You might opt for another condo complex, but none offer you great amenities like Fisherman's Village. If the condo complex says it's 'in town' beware, that means you'll be next to loud discos and clubs pumping out techno music until 2-3 am. Our resort is very quiet as of about 10 pm each night, just in case sleep and rest and relaxation is important to you. If crazy party-action all night is your scene, then staying at a condo or resort 'in town' is the way to go for you!
I am a semi-retired travel agent specializing in Playa del Carmen and the Yucatan for more than 10 years....I will give you some great feedback even if my property isn't quite right for you.
I'm a beach girl born and raised in Southern Calif. I moved to Colorado and felt land-locked so bought this gorgeous beachfront penthouse so I could always get my beach 'fix' when I needed it. I owned and ran a travel agency called Ocean Summit Travel for over a decade until a back injury forced me to sell my company last year. I specialized in Playa del Carmen, so I know all of the other complexes in Playa and things to do in the area. I don't mind giving advice, so feel free to write or call me.
I wanted to be able to get to my vacation home in a few hours of flight time from Denver. I'm not into the towering hotel scene like Miami Beach or Cancun. Playa del Carmen was the perfect blend of beautiful beaches, great shopping and restaurants and centrally located to see ruins, hop over to Cozumel on the ferry and great R & R above all. They limit the height of all the buildings to 3-4 stories so there are no high rises.
This is the ONLY Beachfront 1 BR penthouse in Playa Del Carmen after doing an extensive search online. (feel free to search for yourself) It's actually a 2 BR penthouse, but we can lock down the smaller 2nd bedroom so couples can enjoy the full oceanview from the master suite and the rest of the condo. Most other 1 Bedroom units have no ocean view from the bedroom. You can read reviews of this unit as a 2 BR on VRBO listing 306688
