About the property

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

Playacar Phase I 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.

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 Sectional sleeper sofa in the 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 55 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. New pillowtop mattresses are Sealy posturpedic in all rooms.

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 since the prices change.

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.

P.S. PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED on the beach in Playacar or on the grounds of 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 Quintana Roo

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!

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!

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.

Where do you live?

spectacular property

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have spent a more enjoyable 10 days in an area I truly love. The proximity to downtown Playa makes this even more delightful. You can walk to almost every corner of town including the wonderful area of Playacar II, the ferry to Cozumel, and any of the myriad of restaurants that Playa has to offer. The staff and Pamela provided us with a comfortable stay at every level.

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Josh (or Jack), Thank you so much for your review and it means a lot to me to have you as a return guest. Hope this trip is even better than your first visit. Don't forget to soak up some sun for me and have a margarita (or two) for me also. Sincerely, Pamela
