About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

My penthouse is located in Playacar Phase I which is the PREMIER location in all of Playa del Carmen as it's in a quiet, low density gated neighborhood with private million dollar estates. It's is a 12 minute walk from our complex to 5th Avenue shops/restaurants/bars and the ferry dock.

My penthouse has million-dollar views and you can throw a rock into the ocean from the balcony! This condo and complex is beachfront. You are not only renting from an owner, but a licensed travel agent!

Last minute discounts available for guests booking within 30 days of arrival. Contact owner for more info.

If the idea of a small beachfront resort, a short stroll (10 min) on the beach into town to try a new restaurant and having a private driver greet you at Cancun airport with an icy cold beer waiting for you appeals to you (rather than a large all-inclusive resort with lots of buffet lines) than look no further, you can stop your search! My beachfront penthouse offers ALL of this and more:

1) 24 hour security in gated community and on the resort grounds with 2-3 times the size of beachfront as other resorts and it's BOUTIQUE, just 50 units total!!!

2) Restaurant, casual grill, swim-up and lobby bars, optional all inclusive plan?

3) Free use of Bicycles, Paddleboards, kayaks, Hobie Cats, Windsurfers, volleyball, bocce ball, etc

4) Full service spa a nice oceanfront fitness center?

5) Swimming pools and Jacuzzi?

6) WiFi available in condo, throughout the resort & pool and beach- free of charge

7) Thermostat controlled AC & ceiling fans throughout the condo?

8) Fisherman's Village is a QUIET resort in a quiet gated community! Sure you can opt to stay 'downtown' in a newer condo or all inclusive, but don't forget to pack your ears'll be hearing loud music, rowdy drunks, and party-goers till the wee hours of the morning.

9) Free on-site parking is always available.

10) Our gated community does not allow "vendors" on the beach at all, so you can relax knowing you won't be hassled to buy blankets, massages, jewelry, jet skiing, etc like you will get on the beaches "in town".

11) Beach and pool-side waitress serving! No other condo complex offers this.

Playa Del Carmen is located just 40 minutes South of Cancun and offers the same powdery white sand and turquoise waters, great restaurants and shopping-- without crowds of wild Spring Break partiers and towering hotels. In fact, Playa has a building height restriction to a maximum of 3 stories!

Fisherman's Village is just a 10 minute walk along quiet cobblestone roads or the beach to the town of Playa del Carmen. Also within a short walk is the 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, the local aviary, and the ferry that takes you over to Cozumel. Most guests do not rent a car during their stay except days they wish to explore other areas of the Yucatan. If you plan on lounging on the beach, shopping and eating out in Playa del Carmen, maybe taking the ferry to Cozumel one day-- you may not want a car the entire time. We can recommend reliable airport transportation to and from Cancun International to Fisherman's Village.

About Pamela

I am an Orange County, California native that moved to Boulder, CO in 1994. I have been a licensed travel agent since 2002 and love to help travelers discover the Mayan Riviera. I can also help you find an all-inclusive hotel, if the condo route is something you decide doesn't fit what your needs. I am a GROUPS specialist so please ask me if you are seeking help planning a wedding, family reunion, 40, 50 or 60th Bday celebration, etc.

As passionate as I am about the mountains, I missed the beach so much I bought this 2 Bedroom/2.5 bth penthouse in 1996. Playa del Carmen is so much prettier and fun than the beaches of Southern California! If you have never been down there, feel free to call me. I've been going down to this part of the world since 1988.

Pamela purchased this condo in 1996

Why Pamela chose Playa del Carmen

We love to vacation here ourselves. Our boys have grown up at Fisherman's, learned to swim here and boogie boarded the first time in the beach in front of this property. We love the fact that our resort offers Hobie Cats, Paddleboards, kayaks, and other activities like beach or aqua volleyball.

There are butterflies, an aviary full of birds, ghost crabs, iguanas and lots of exploring to do. Mom and Dad like to swim, bicycle and relax but occasionally take in a seaside massage that is offered by Fisherman's Village. We also love the town of Playa del Carmen...5th Avenue is really fun for shopping and dining.

What makes this condo unique

If you like the best of both worlds, you'll love it at Fisherman's Village! Not only do you get a great sized condos with a full living, dining room and kitchen, but you also have all the amenities of a small exclusive hotel such as an optional meal plan that includes unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and two meals for $58 per day!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Pamela's condo is amazing! We stayed there for our honeymoon and were very impressed with its amazing views and location. The beach is well-maintained and the water warm and swimmable. The staff is incredibly friendly and there are scheduled activities to take part in, if one so wishes. I'm not usually interested in group activities on vacation, but these were low-key and very entertaining. We did not do the all-inclusive plan, but opted to eat on our own. It was nice to have a full kitchen in the condo! I highly recommend Pamela's place!

Fantastic location and great property!

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a special place - it is a condo in a medium-sized beach resort. So you get the best of everything: condo space with an all inclusive resort-like feel (with the food/drinks option).

The location is exactly as described in the listing - it is on the beach with a great view from the balcony and an even better view from the master bedroom. Pamela (the owner) has dialed-in the whole process: her check-in instructions are great and they even include local restaurant recommendations.

Great place to stay and we would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a getaway in Playa Del Carmen.

Excellent Condo, OK Resort

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a fantastic week. The condo was perfect,; however, there were a few drawbacks to the resort in general.


The Condo!

beautiful views from the balcony and master bedroom, plenty of space for a family, so nice to have 2 1/2 bathrooms, master bed was very comfortable, kitchen well stocked, boogie boards and pool noodles for the kids, overall in very good condition

The Beach and Pool Area - pool was clean and warm (shallow section was very warm, deeper part cool enough to be refreshing), showers for rinsing off sand/salt water, plenty of chairs and beds, not crowded at all, ocean was warm and gorgeous

Breakfast Buffet - Absolutely delicious! So many choices, ranging from traditional breakfast foods to Mexican specialties. Highly recommend!

The Staff - everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The front desk/lobby workers were always available if we needed a cab, were quick to respond for requests (more water, towels, etc.), and even made the call when we wanted to order us pizza one night. The pool staff were also great - the man at the towel hut always has a smile on his face.

Location - We felt extremely safe in the gated community. It was never crowded and very peaceful. It was nice having a private beach without vendors bothering you.

The Cons:

Location - It was a little far from town for us. The walk (15-20 minutes) proved to be too much for my children and mother. Getting taxis was easy and not overly expensive, so that's what we wound up doing. It was inconvenient to always have to taxi though. Once we were at the resort, there was really nothing within walking distance.

Pool Bar - The mixed drinks were really terrible. We ordered pina coladas that tasted nothing like pina coladas. We ordered them again thinking the first time was a fluke, and they were even worse. I recommend purchasing your own alcohol and bringing it to the beach/pool.

Dinner - Apparently each night is a theme. We went one night when we were just too tired to head into town and were disappointed by the very limited menu. You are definitely better off eating elsewhere for dinner.

If you don't mind being a little removed from downtown and making your own drinks and want a beautiful, safe, and quiet vacation, then this is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Well I am extremely disappointed in receiving a 3 star review for things that are totally out of my control as an owner, such as how a pina colada is prepared and the fact that the dinner menu in the complex was limited. With just 55 units total, the restaurant doesn't get a full house to have a huge menu. But to give me a 3 star review was pretty harsh considering MY penthouse, the staff and the beach were all fabuous! The location is on a map on VRBO is clearly marked and I explain how long it takes to walk to town. It takes me only 12 minutes to walk to the Ferry dock and 5th Ave but it can take the elderly and small kids longer than that. To me, the benefit of being just a bit further from town with the safety of a gated community with no vendors, no seaweed, no rocks and a big beautiful beach are worth the short stroll. :) Sorry you were disappointed. Thank goodness, the majority of my customers give me 5 stars for my great retreat in Playa!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything that you could ask for. The condo itself had everything you will need and the views are incredible. Pay attention and use Pamela's recommendations regarding restaurants, etc. since she does not steer you wrong.

The Hotel was great you got all the service of a big resort without the crowds the cost was extremely reasonable. The location to fantastic and allowed easy access to everything you would want to do in Playa Del Carmen.

We will definitely be back!

Amazing location for wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely enjoyable week at Playa..... the perfect balance between relaxing on the beach and wandering some local ruins, beaches, and cenotes. This resort has wonderful beach and pool furniture (that doesn't cost extra to use like many resorts), a great, warm welcoming staff, a nice variety of activities to participate in, and the perfect location. The unit was very well equipped and quite convenient both to the downtown area for dinners in the evening and the ferry service to Cozumel. It worked well to have a kitchen to prepare some meals and snacks, but also the restaurant and bars on property for quick service when at the pool or beach. The unit was well kept, well furnished, with a wonderful balcony for enjoying the ocean breeze and views. Pamela was very attentive, providing details about our stay beforehand and very quick to respond during our stay. We have a "family rule" to not go to the same location twice on a vacation, but this stay has made us very tempted to break that rule... it was the perfect Spring Break for our family with 2 teenagers. We are so glad we chose to rent this unit instead of staying at a nearby larger resort.

First view out of the Unit is Breath taking

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I had rented before from this owner and could not wait to get back. we invited an another couple to join us on this vacation and to experience this beautiful place. Once again we could not have picked a more perfect place to enjoy Playa. Our friends still cannot stop talking about Sun Set Fisherman's, Villa's, but the view from the unit and all the great staff always with answers to any of our questions.

It's a great location, beach and a great 15 minute walk to Playa Del Carman to hundreds of great places to eat and Shop till you drop!
