Overview

Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Our penthouse has million-dollar views and you can throw a rock into the ocean from the balcony! You are not only renting from an owner but a licensed travel agent!

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 bikes, kayaks, Hobie Cats, Windsurfers, boogie boards & snorkel gear?

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 plugs....you'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.

Compare all you receive above at Fisherman's Village and the low prices we are now offering.....and book today!

BEDDING: King in Master, Either two twins or a SPLIT-KING in 2nd room, and futon couch in living room. 2.5 bths.

Fisherman's Village in the private gated community of Playacar, right next to the town of Playa del Carmen. It's perfect for two couples with a king and a split-king in the 2nd bedroom OR a family because the split king can also be two twin beds.

Fisherman's Village is a luxurious beachfront condominium complex with just 60 units in the quiet coastal community of Playacar just a 10 minute walk to Playa del Carmen. Fisherman's Village is known to be the nicest quality resort/condo complex in the entire Yucatan Peninsula for it's elegance, fine service, and resort-like amenities such as a full service restaurant, room service, swim-up pool bar, full sized pool and a children's pool, water sports, jacuzzis for the complex, air conditioned gym, Spa services such as massage, facials, pedicures and manicures too.

This unit has travertine flooring, slab marble counter-tops, central air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout. Don't just take my word for it, read my past guest reviews below!

My unit in Fisherman's Village is furnished with hand-carved Mexican furniture, paintings from local artisans and soft 300 thread count cotton linens. The other two are furnished slightly differently, but all with excellent taste in decor.

The entire upper floor is the Master Suite with huge picture windows out to the Sea. The bottom level features 2nd bedroom, bath, kitchen, living, half bath and dining areas and a large balcony overlooking the pool, beach and ocean. At night you can stand on any of the units balconies and see the twinkling lights of Cozumel across the Caribbean.

One NEW feature of Fisherman's Village is an optional Meal Plan. This is your option which can be decided after you arrive at the complex and used one day, but not the next if you choose. This includes two meals and unlimited drinks including cocktails all day & night! Write or call me for more info.

Free for all guest's use at Fisherman's Village are the bicycles, kayaks, boogie boards and snorkel gear! It's a fabulous place for adults and kids alike.

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.

Available Options: Babysitting, Bicycles, kayaks, sailboats, snorkeling gear, sailboard, and rafts. Nearby Horseback riding on the beach, scuba diving and snorkeling.

For additional sized units, please contact us for more details. I have many more photos too...just email or call me!

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!

Beautiful Ocean View Condo

  • 5 of 5

We will be returning to this wonderful penthouse condo again this February! Pamela is a delight to work with. She provided us with information for a very efficient and economical private car service to and from the property. The car service allowed us to stop at a local supermarket so that we could pick up some provisions. Pamela also provided us with some restaurant recommendations which we found very helpful. The property is spacious, clean, well maintained and nicely appointed. We would make breakfast and lunch in the unit every day and everything we needed was there. It has a beautiful balcony overlooking the beach where we would love to relax and watch the stars in the evening. The staff at the resort are friendly and helpful. The property is far enough from town to feel secluded but close enough to easily walk for meals or shopping. We highly recommend!

Beautiful Location - Highly Recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the owner's other unit here two years ago with my family as penthouse was booked. We absolutely loved it. Beach was beautiful. Was the perfect location - could easily walk into town on street or on the beach or take a very short inexpensive cab ride. Loved that the location was quiet but for anyone looking for nightlife it is very close. We only ate at the resort once and it was OK but we preferred to go into town and Pamela , the owner was extremely helpful recommending restaurants and we also tried some places folks we talked to recommended. All were delicious.The condo was absolutely beautiful - so spacious for our family of four and had everything we needed. Very clean and well maintained. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly as well. We also took her recommendation for a driver from the airport. Was a little pricier than a cab would have been but took advantage of the fact that he would stop at store before we got there so we were able to buy drinks and breakfast food and snacks prior to our arrival which was great. Not a lot to do at the resort although we did use the kayaks but we were not looking to do a lot on the days we stayed there. We did a day trip to Cozumel which was awesome and spent a day at Xel-Ha which was awesome. We only rented a car for a few days that we knew we were venturing out but was great that Hertz was so close. We loved it so much that we are heading back this April and will be staying in the penthouse unit.

Great condo on the water

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great and the staff were all very nice. Lovely setup for sitting on the beach in front of the restaurant. A short walk to 5th Ave shops, the Cozumel Ferry and Hertz car rental. We rented a car and drove to the Coba ruins one day, and explored Dos Ojos cenote another.

Fabulous Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed very comfortably for a week at this lovely condo and never got tired of the views we got to wake up to. The weather was hot so we spent alot of time relaxing on the resort loungers on the beach where the breeze kept us cool. From there we would just wade out into that gorgeous turquoise water to hang out and chat while the kids played nearby.

The resort staff were friendly, fun and helpful; they got us set up with tons of towels everyday and fins for snorkeling at Akumal, a nearby town, where they take their turtle conservation very seriously. We also traveled down to tour the ruins and town at Tulum which is an easy hop from the condo as well!

We walked into town and had some really nice dinners in Playa every night of our stay. The condo was well set up to cook in which we did for breakfasts and lunch; there are many large grocery stores in town or street vendors with food carts which was all really convienent.

The kids had a blast playing beach volleyball at the resort and pool games with other guests; everyone seemed to be enjoying their holiday at Fishermans! We certainly did and would highly recommend the condo and resort to anyone considering staying in the area.

Outstanding Ocean Front Penthouse in great resort in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week in Playa del Carmen where my daughters and I stayed in a stunning 2-story penthouse condo right on the beach at the Royal Sunset Fisherman's Resort. The condo was perfect. 2 bedrooms (upstairs a really nice master suite facing the ocean with a king and its own full bathroom and sitting area; the downstairs BDR has 2 doubles), 2.5 bathrooms, modern kitchen with all the appliances/cookware etc you could ask for. Nice living room & dining area with a great view of the ocean. Even better view from the spacious outside balcony. Fisherman's resort is a real winner too. Really nice pool with fountains/infinity edge, swim up bar. They provide free single/double kayaks, free hobie-cat sailboat (they also have a guy who will skipper it for you if you dont know how to sail). All kinds of fun activities too, especially for kids. Ocean was very safe and kid-friendly. Really friendly and helpful staff. Property is about a 10 minute walk (2 minute drive) to town as well as the ferry that goes to Cozumel (a must do by the way, only 40 minutes, $25/roundtrip). Many tremendous restaurants within walking distance, as well as street-side stands where many of the locals eat (my personal favorites).

The condo owner was so helpful. She made the reservation process really easy and provided us with a bunch of great insider tips regarding local restaurants, things to do, etc. On-site management was equally gracious and professional.

Only caveat is that the penthouse has two stories so if you can't climb stairs it might not be the best place for you.

I cannot wait to return to Playa and will definitely try to reserve this condo next time as well. My girls and I felt so at home, so comfortable, and so wowed by the view and the condo itself. I've vacationed in mexico 50+ times --- this was the best yet!
