About the property

Main floor Condo, 1 Bdrm, 2 BR, 800 Sqft, Directly on the Ocean & Beachfront

Looking to be right on the beach, with unobstructed ocean views; with access right from the terrace to the pool, beach and Caribbean Sea - then you have found it. Our main floor unit is 1 bdrm, 2 bathroom, 800 sq ft, which is perfectly situated in a full service Resort and Spa, front row and center to a fabulous pool, spa and most importantly the most beautiful beach in all of Mexico. Just think you are guaranteed beachfront without having to pay the extra money that the big resorts demand for that room on the beach or those ocean views. It doesn't get any better than this. You will not find any other condo with such a great location that provides the amenities found here. Don't want to cook your own meals then choose one of the Optional Meal/Drink Plans available; details available at the front desk. The flexibility is endless. Beach and poolside service is also available for your convenience.

After you have arrived and check-in at the front desk and enter into the condo the views through the sliding glass doors will blow you away! You are literally steps away from the beautiful beach that leads you directly into the turquoise waters of Caribbean Sea. Now that you have pinched yourself and gather your thoughts, you will want to take a look around the condo and take in all the lovely marbled floors and counter tops. You will find a very nice sized bedroom with a comfortable King size bed, attached a 4 pce bathroom and ample storage space. In the main living area there is a 1/2 bath. The kitchen is well appointed with microwave, full size stove/oven, fridge, coffee maker, kettle, blender and all cook and dishware you will need. There is a sit up bar between the kitchen and living area and also a NEW dining table and bar stools. The living room contains a sofa and matching armchair. There are two 40' Sony flat screen televisions with satellite/cable channels.

Our condo has it's own direct WIFI service. The fees for this convenience are included in the rental fees. As well you have free long distance calling within North America.

While you are a guest you entitled to use the amenities of the Resort i.e. beach towels, boogie boards, sail boat, poolside and beach loungers and beds, gym, daily activities as provided in daily schedules, and safety deposit boxes at the front desk for your valuables (passport) during your stay.

Please keep in mind that if you are looking for a party-hardy all-night type resort, this is not the place for you. Fishermen's is a very laid back quiet location. If you are looking for both, you can find the nightlife a short cab ride away to 5th Avenue and when you want the quiet you can hang out at the Resort; best of both worlds. The resort also provides a free shuttle service a couple of times a day from the resort to 5th Avenue - please inquire at front desk for times.

If you choose to book your next tropical vacation at our condo we are sure you will not be disappointed.

For Airport Transfer or tours you may want to consider USA Transfer / Entertainment Plus. Go to the Owner Info below and click on the Link to our website and then Airport Transfer tab at the top of the page. They can also provide services that would allow you to stop and purchase groceries on your way to the condo.

About Owner / Property Manager

My husband and I are from Alberta Canada. We have been traveling to the Mayan Riviera area one or two times a year since 2008. We really enjoy coming here to get away from the Canadian Winters.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Quintana Roo

The property is really the perfect location to get around the Mayan Riviera. You are close to shopping, tours, and of course right on the Caribbean Sea with the most amazing private beach and spa services.

What makes this condo unique

Although you are staying in a private condo it has all the benefits of staying in an All-Inclusive resort with all the same amenities available. There is a full service spa and gym; as well as a variety of Optional All-inclusive Meal Plans to choose from. The Resort is very small by Resort standards. This allows for a more 'personal' experience from a very caring and attentive staff.

Beautiful condo and great resort!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and resort were top notch. The condo was in a great location to both pool and beach. It is tastefully furnished and was a great home away from home. The owner, Doreen was so easy to work with, I can not say enough good things about our experience with her. The resort itself is gorgeous, the pool and beach spectacular. It is about a 10 minute walk in town. It was one of the most relaxing , stress free vacations I have ever taken. I hope one day to come back to this gorgeous condo and resort. You will not be sorry if you book this condo!!!

Wonderful............

  • 5 of 5

First time in Mexico that we rented a condo. I was a little reluctant as I was not sure about (the ease of) renting through a private owner. Well, I am here to say that Doreen was amazing! She communicated this very well and it was easier than reserving a hotel! Any time that I sent her a inquiry, I swear she responded within minutes. We just loved it! Absolutely perfect! Clean and up to date! The best part...it's right on the beach. It's beautiful and would highly recommend renting this place especially with Doreen! Thanks again......

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Doreen's condo for our 2 week honeymoon. What a wonderful place! Happy Hour playing cards out on the patio with the ocean a stones throw away was awesome, as was the comfortable king size bed and fully equipped kitchen.. and everything was so very clean. We loved the size of the 'resort' as it was not overwhelming or crowded. Friendly staff and beautiful beach. Doreen was so quick to answer our e-mails, which was very much appreciated. We will most definitely be coming back!

LOVED this spot! Almost don't want to say so cause it'll be booked SOLID!!! Ha!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome condo. Doreen has thought of everything. Kitchen has it all except food! Bed is comfy and bed sheets are great - rental sheets can get "shabby" and these are not! TWO toilettes! Yahoo! Ensuite IS sweet. Water comes out of the faucet like a waterfall - not so much pressure in the shower-head, but I'm not here to shower, right?! LOVE the ground level - we sat on the deck rather than round the pool - SO convenient - it's like you're at home and you just happen to live on the edge of a resort pool on the ocean. Ocean is aquamarine with violet - absolutely stunning. You can see the island of Cozumel in the distance - surreal. No beach vendors. Beautiful beach to walk every day. Staff at this resort is total 5-star. We tipped big cause they deserved every peso and they are so generous with their smiles and their country. Loved it.

Owner's Response: Kathie, thank you for taking the time to paint such a detailed picture of what others may expect should they book with us. It is important to us that others enjoy our vacation home as much as we do. The Staff at Fishermen's work very hard to look after all guests. I am sure your generosity in recognizing this was very much appreciated..

We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We completely agree with all the praise and superlatives in the previous reviews of this condo. 5-stars for the condo, our host, the location, the beach, the staff and the resort. Everything was terrific.

Here are a couple of other things that deserve to be mentioned (or mentioned again).

The condo was fresh and immaculate and very comfortable.

There are sailboats and kayaks available as well as frequent volleyball and other beach games. Yet the ambiance was delightfully tranquil and relatively quiet. Somehow the volleyball players and the kids in the pool all had a lot of fun without being inconsiderate or rude and we were able to read and relax without interruption.

There was always alot of friendly staff around to make sure that the beach and other areas were immaculate as well as to help us with anything from snacks to getting us a taxi.

When we were there one of the two restaurants was closed for renovation but this wasn’t a problem. Its just a $5 taxi ride and about 10 minutes to anywhere in PDC. We found a terrific Italian Restaurant right out side the entrance to Playacar and a great Thai place on Calle 38.

Speaking of taxis, they were great too. We wanted to do our laundry so we just asked and they stopped at a laundromat on our way to dinner. Another stop at a pharmacy, no problem. They might add a dollar or two to the fare but they were quite happy to drive us all over and wait for us. The convenience was much appreciated.

Our first night we turned left and walked 10 minutes down the beautiful beach to the Cozumel Ferry area. On our prior visits to that area it seemed to be shoddy and rundown but now they’ve added a lot of snazzy shops and restaurants with tree shaded walkways.

The gym was clean and had a nice but small assortment of equipment. I found it too hot to do much exercise but that was probably my way of getting out of exercising. I’m sure that if I asked they would have turned up the a/c. Oh well, I was on vacation.

I especially liked the assortment of lounges on the beach. They were good quality woven reclining chairs, covered beds and assorted other very comfortable seating. Lots of them too.

I’ve tried not to repeat what other have said but if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Oh, the beachfront location was great for my allergies too.

Jeff

Great stay in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in Doreen's unit for a week over New Years. The condo was comfortable and in a very convenient location on the property. It was definitely nice to have such easy access to the pool. It was a bit of a hike to walk to town but it wasn't too bad. We picked up groceries at Walmart and cooked for a good portion of the week. The staff at the resort was very friendly. We ran into a minor problem during our stay and Doreen was quick to respond to help solve it. The weather got better and better as the week went on. Early in the week when the sea was a bit choppy, they had someone out in the morning to rake up the seaweed so that the beach looked clean. This is definitely a great price for comfortable unit.

This dream location is only about 45 minute drive South from Cancun International Airport. For reliable transfer service to and from the airport; as well as tours, we recommend USA Transfers. and click on the Transfer Tab. As you approach the Condo you will see that we are nestled in among one of the prestigious gated communities of Playa del Carmen. It is a very quite setting right on the beach, but yet close enough to walk to 5th Avenue for shopping, dining and nightlife. Wal-Mart is only a cab ride away to pick up a few groceries or anything else that you may be needing. The area right behind the Condo is a historical site with historical mayan ruins.
