Belleza en la Playa is a one-bedroom condo with ensuite full bath and an additional half bath in Fishermen's Resort & Spa is the only one-bedroom with an unsurpassed balcony view of the sea and the pool. This is a full sized condo; not a hotel room or a studio. You have a living room, dining room, full kitchen, with a half bath in the hallway. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom and within this bedroom is a full bath, with marble tiled shower. Great balcony with table and chairs and two chaise loungers.

At night you can see the lights of the island of Cozumel across the sea. It is wonderful to sit on the balcony and listen to the soft sounds of the waves hitting the beach.

There are a couple of other privately owned units for rent in this complex, but none have the great view and privacy of this unit in the middle of the building on the 2nd floor.

The dining room, kitchen and living room are open to the wonderful balcony. Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking including a microwave and oven/range.

Dining room seats four. Living room has a leather sofa which is a also a sofa bed (suitable for a child under 12). Cable TV in the living room. In addition to the air conditioning, there are two ceiling fans.

There is a half bath in the hallway near the kitchen and living areas.

The king ensuite master bedroom also has Cable TV. Shower and vanities are marble. Master bedroom has separate air conditioning controls from the living areas and also a ceiling fan.

About Lynn

My husband Matt and myself at Fishermen's.

We currently live in Illinois, USA, but if we didn't have to work, we would be living here at the beach. We feel very fortunate to have found Fishermen's and Playa del Carmen.

Lynn purchased this condo in 1996

Why Lynn chose Playa del Carmen

I visted Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area and simply fell in love with it. I really like the Mayan background and history of the area, but the natural beauty is spectacular.

I am an original owner at Fishermen's and purchased this unit before the building was even completely built.

Back in 1996, Fishermen's was to be a residential condo building but subsequently portions of it were purchased by Royal Sunset timeshare. There are still a handful of owners such as ourselves that own our unit with a deed and not timeshare.

What makes this condo unique

Unbelievable sea views. Great beach. Walking distance into town. Quiet and peaceful at the condo. Small boutique atmosphere. Foot and drinks onsite. Concierge onsite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a wonderful stay”



Reviewed August 15, 2011





We stayed at Fisherman's August 5 to August 12 and thoughly enjoyed this wonderful place. We met some great folks from all over the world. Fishermans is small but is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The best part however is the staff. They were fantastic...always willing to help in anyway. If you take the time to get to know them a little they even work harder to make your stay fun, comfortable and worthwhile. The pool, beach and accomodations were excellent. The spa was super and we enjoyed it lots. The food was OK...not great....but certainly provided by a willing and responsive wait staff. The Italian dinning option where you needed reservations was not as speedy but the food was OK. Drink options were all domestic Mexican brands but we are not picky and thought the pool side drink options were good. Fisherman's is close to Playa del Carmen and only a quick 15 min walk or 5 min cab ride. The walk is nice as it can be done on the beach or through a very nice gated community passing wonderful rental homes and condos as well as fantastic private residences. We felt very very safe the whole time we were there. Recommed the ferry ride over to Cozumel as it is cheap, roughly $24 @ roundtrip. Shopping, dinning and snorkeling options in Cozumel are abundant. Playa del Carmen is a real hit also. Lots to see and do. Some very good dinning and the shopping is interesting. We will go back

Stellar!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from April 30th-May 7th 2016. Fishermans Village is wonderfully located .75 miles from town in an upscale well kept gated community in a fantastic pretty neighborhood. The complex is also very well kept, with an open aired lobby typical in Mexico and the staff is very attentive. I was told that there are 56 units, 10 of which are condos and the rest are hotel type rooms. There is a spa which we did not use. There are a couple of restaurants and the pool area and beach are as clean and lovely and accurately portrayed as the pictures and view from the condo. One restaurant had a nice breakfast buffet for $12 and the other didn't seem too expensive but I would ask locals where they eat.. We had some wonderful inexpensive meals in places a bit out of town...also off street carts in town.

You walk up one flight of stairs from the lobby to the room. The room was clean and well appointed. The kitchen is cozy with nice granite and a modern touch control built in stovetop and a stainless fridge...all the dishes etc. you need to cook. Bathrooms are granite. Floors are tile or marble..Bedroom is fine..bed is FIRM. There is a very convenient small safe in the closet. Plenty of storage space and a water cooler in the living room. We had a few questions for Lynn and she was highly responsive. It was very quiet for sleeping at night!

We enjoyed walking to town each night-15 min walk and walking down 5th avenue which is a street with shops, excursion booths and restaurants on each side. What was unique was that it was miles long!

If you are sensitive to light when you sleep I would recommend bringing an eyemask since there is a window with a lot of light coming in though there is a drape...would recommend Lynn put up some kind of blackout device/shade.

I HIGHLY recommend this condo and complex and would definitely return.

Enjoy!

PS-Took the ADO bus from Cancun airport. highly recommend..this is a luxury Greyhound air conditioned type bus 160 pesos about $10 per person. Takes you a mile from Fisherman's in town. Took taxi from ADO station in Playa for 120 pesos about 7$..kinda high for a mile drive but we had luggage. Walked to town the rest of the time.

Great stay at fishermen 's.

  • 4 of 5

Incredible view of sunrise to start each day while eating breakfast on the balcony.

Very comfortable living area. The resort has a nice different dinner each evening. Prices are reasonable.

Must make arrangements and pay for cleaning services.

Overall it was a great two week stay.

Somewhat Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We rented the unit 9-17 Nov 2015 and arrived around three unfortunately when the gentleman took us to the condo the girls was still clean so we dropped off our bags and headed out to do some grocery shopping. The unit has been updated quite nicely and decorated tastefully. Our timing was obviously not good the t.v. nor internet in the bedroom did not work the entire time we were there. Yet the locals who were remodeling next door had a large screen t.v. fully operating in the bedroom next to ours? The half bath toilet broke in which we had to notify our local contact that it needed to be repaired. The a/c in the main living area stopped working for 4 days at which time we decided to try and stay cool with the fans, miraculously it came back on the day before we departed. You do have a great view but with all the construction next door where they were cutting tile etc. it was too noisy and dusting to enjoy the balcony. There were evening as late as 6 o'clock we would have to ask the workers to stop because they would be chipping away tile and it was a constant noise to the point you could not hear the t.v. Hopefully the construction has been completed and those who have rented since Nov. have had peace and tranquility. The Internet was very slow in the lobby due to everyone trying to connect. As for the beach it is nothing compared to Isla Mujers there is lots of seaweed and the workers dig holes to bury it each day and it is a little stinky. We enjoyed our time in Playa DEL Carmen but doubtful we would return. We enjoyed the main pedestrian area and met some great locals. I have two recommendations for this property 1) blackout curtains for the bedroom 2) have a functional t.v. in the bedroom (plus Internet which was noted as amenities).

Owner's Response: Unfortunately these guests did arrive at a time when the neighboring condo owners choose to renovate their unit. I had no advance warning of this nor could I do much to control it, other than contacting management and making sure it was stopped at an appropriate time, which I did twice. The beach is a seasonal phenomenon. I don't know what storms had come through or around in November, but that is historically a stormy time. Seaweed on the beach is not the norm. I note that internet is available in the lobby and sometimes available from the master bedroom. Not always is WiFi accessible directly in the unit. It is always available in the lobby, where there is a great view and the lobby bar.

Great location, beautiful beach, right on ocean, small and quaint

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed waking up and going to sleep with the sound of the ocean. Short 15 minute walk to Play Del Carmen on beach or through a lovely gated neighborhood. Rooms and facilities are not new, but are in decent, rustic shape. Great view of the ocean from rooms or pool.

Beautiful condo at a bargain price!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in early December and loved this condo. Its a very good value for what you pay and more than enough space for 2 people. It is very nicely decorated with up to date amenities and very well stocked. it was also spotless upon our arrival. We had a mid week cleaning and the crew did an awesome job. We also had groceries delivered by the management company prior to our arrival and they found everything we wanted and placed items in the fridge as asked. The balcony is large and the view is great. We enoyed our breakfast every morning on the balcony. The Wifi in the lobby worked great the few times we actually wanted to use it! The resort is wonderful with a great pool and beach and the bartenders were very helpful in selecting drinks and they even delivered to us on the pool deck. I have stayed at other condo resorts where you had to get up every time and get your drinks so this was a nice added feature. The drinks and guacamole were also inexpensive (we ate our breakfast and lunch in the condo except for the guacamole by the pool). We walked to 5th Ave every night for dinner which is about a 15-20 min walk. It's perfect for working off those extra calories from the food and drink.

I cant say enough good things about renting from Lynn. I bombarded her with questions before our arrival and she was very friendly and answered all my questions in a very timely manner. I even emailed her during our stay about an extra cleaning and she directed me where to go within a couple of hours. We had to tweak our dates for our stay and she was very understanding about it. I would most definately rent from her again.

If you are looking for 5 star treatment, you won't find that at this resort, but you also don't have the 5 star prices. I would give the resort 4 stars and even better prices. It cant be beat for what you pay.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic time here. It started with the owner being very responsive and was able to accommodate an early check in(1pm). The condo upon arrival was terrific! All updated; the kitchen, floors, bathrooms. It was so comfortable; a gem of find. We went to the supermarket and stocked up on food, Cervezas & Tequila. So we used the kitchen everyday as it had everything we would need to cook and make margaritas and went out for dinner each night in town. The view was just captivating and the resort was in a great area(Playa Car). Tree lined streets and very safe. You can walk out to the main avenue in 10 min or the 5th ave in 20min. It was a $6 taxi ride each way. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They had pool games and beach volleyball everyday. We did go on some excursions that were terrific (swim with the Dolphins and Catamaran snorkeling)otherwise we spent the days at the resort relaxing.

Definitely consider this place you will be very happy. We are already thinking of coming back in a few months as we loved PDC and we will book this place in a heartbeat if its available. Thanks Lynn

Owner's Response: YAY! I'm so happy you had a wonderful visit. It sounds like you really explored the area and were able to discover many of the fabulous things about Playa. The beach there is so nice, many people don't venture too far. But as you mentioned, there are many magical things to do nearby that are so worth venturing out to do. Thank you for your great descriptive review; it is very appreciated.
