After staying at this wonderful 1BR oceanfront condo twice in the past 9 months---I can't imagine staying anywhere else. I have been vacationing in the Playacar/Playa Del Carmen area for the past 15 years. I have stayed at all-inclusive resorts, private homes and condos.....and NOTHING compares to my stay at this beautiful oceanfront condo at Fisherman's. The condo is neat, clean and nicely updated. It features a spacious bedroom with king bed and a private bath with nicely tiled glass shower. The main living area/kitchen/dining area faces the ocean with amazing ocean views! The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. The dining area was the perfect place for me to sit when I had to work on my laptop - and I could enjoy the gorgeous views while doing so. The WIFI connection was solid and I had no issues working for a few hours each day. The resort offers an all-inclusive feature if you wish - but the food is average at best. We preferred to go to the grocery store and stock the kitchen during our stay - and also ventured to several restaurants in town. The staff at Fisherman's is AMAZING and remembered us from our last stay and took great care of us. It was very much appreciated. Fisherman's has the feel of a boutique hotel - which is charming to me - and the location is second to none. It is literally a 10-12 minute walk into town. The gated community where it is located is very safe and meticulously kept. The owner Lynn is a pleasure to work with - and she is very informative and quick to respond to any questions. I look forward to renting this unit again (hopefully sooner than later!!!!!) 5 stars in my book!
Dear Max, I would like to thank you again for a wonderful vacation at your beautiful property in Playa del Carmen. I warmly recommend your property and we are already anticipation our next visit and bringing more family. I prepared a longer review (3 pages in Word) to describe the experience, only a third of it will fit, please forward to anyone interested. Our arrival was in mid-August and we stayed for 11 days. As we entered the gated community of Playacar we knew we were in a very unique place. The transfer shuttle took about 45 minutes from the Cancun International Airport to reach the entry in Playacar. We passed the security barrier and found ourselves driving through a meandering paved street, which exhibits lush vegetation and luxurious villas on all sides. We were surprised to even see an enclosed protected park with Mayan ruins on the way. We walked on this street many days with much pleasure going to the Centro, taking pictures around the ruins, admiring the beauty of the villas with competing styles and laugh at the occasional tsereche -- the local protected wild pet -- crossing the street.
Upon arrival we were received with warm welcomes by the resort staff and all have been very helpful to us throughout the stay. All are very friendly. The resort is as described-- small, very private, very inviting, and very safe. The pool setting is beautiful and overlooking the ocean, and it is not crowded. They have lounge chairs, couches and beds on the beach with umbrellas, frankly more than needed, so plenty to choose from.
The condo is located a few steps away, same building, one floor up. The condo is very roomy and there are many ways in which a family can divide the space, a flexibility that many will find very attractive. Very friendly to families with children and if extra bed is needed there seems to be a pull-out couch, but we did not use it. The balconies provide a blended view of the resort, palm trees, pool and the beach while being out of direct sun light which I liked very much. The bedrooms were clean, beds well made and trust me this is the first and most important aspect that my wife looks at when we arrive in a new place. The closets were well provisioned with additional clean sheets and towels. The bathrooms were clean, marble floor and sinks. For one shower I needed to learn to wait a bit to get the hot water. The kitchen is adequately equipped, but to be fair we did not plan to cook that much during our stay.
