The facility and rooms are beautiful. Location is beach front with easy walk to shopping. The staff is cheerful and eager to assist. This is the first year we've participated in events like bocce ball, yoga, and classes like margarita and pastry making (which includes samples of course!). David and Ruth had a way of pulling us in and we...

Just returned from 2 weeks here. Some great improvements such as new dining area and remodeled lobby bathrooms. Sadly the general manager passed away while we were there. Hope his successor continues with his improvements. We will miss you Havier. I did not like the fact that dinner is a buffet....chicken or fish every night it seems. Ordering of a...

Room #108 is a ground floor unit. The back slider goes onto a patio, a few steps further is the pool and pool bar. This hotel is older but well kept. Its the only resort steps from the beach. Several large hotels are farther south and have been pushed back about a quarter mile from the beach. The proximity to...

I've probably stayed at Fishermen's at least 7-8 times over the last 13 years as my family owns timeshare weeks there. This resort is located on one of the best stretches of beach in Playa Del Carmen. It has a small pool and a wide variety of beach seating, from lounge chairs to wicker couches and shaded beds.

We took our trip Oct.29 to Nov.5'16. We had a great time relaxing. The first three days were rainy, and stormy at night. The service is the key element to this place. We had great waiters, Marlene, the hostess, Agustin, Saul, and Jorge. All smiles, great service and friendly. The only bad room I know of is 102a, which is...

Nice Hotel and Place, they have service deficiencies and a very regular food quality. Chef Yeep is making his best and seems that his making effort in improving food service and quality. I think there is not enough personnel nor training to them.

Oh where to begin. The other recent reviews accurately describe the state of disrepair at the resort. Hot tubs don't work. The pool had issues. Having a hot shower was a crapshoot. The whole place needs a facelift. One bar with no seats and one very overworked bartender on duty. The food is just ok. The website says there are...
