About The Owner

I bought my Fishermen's condo when I was living in Washington DC and needed to escape from my very demanding job. I bought here because it was only a 3 hour non-stop flight to Cancun's International airport and the complete R & R chilling-out that I needed; in luxury and unimaginable beauty. I have felt very privileged, ever since, to own this piece of paradise and I currently live, in retirement, just 150 yards from Fishermen's. Come join me here and see for yourselves and see that there are no exaggerations in this description. Here I am with my granddaughter from England.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why The Owner chose Quintana Roo

Because it provides peace and tranquility in a small hotel with all the necessary services. And the staff are kind and very hospitable. Playa del Carmen is a short walk away, straight down the beach.....

What makes this condo unique

Full-service condo-hotel right on a beautiful white-sand, Caribbean beach where you can swim comfortably, year-round!

Great location, Sub par Condo

  • 3 of 5

The location is excellent! Right on the beach with easy access to the pool. The staff is amazing at Fisherman's! Marcel the doorman is awesome. He will find you a driver for the day at a great price. The drinks and the food are overpriced! The food is good but not great. The bartenders use the lowest bar shelf liquor. It took them 4 days to get more tomato juice for bloody mary's. The Condo is just ok. It needs an update now! The furniture is old, the oven gets really hot and burns food easily, no hot pads/mits to take hot food out of the oven, the cupboards look like they are ready to fall off, the upstairs bathroom needs a major overhaul. All in all is was an ok condo and the only savior was the staff at Fisherman's is wonderfull! But you can only polish a turd for so long. Spoke with other people who have been coming to Fisherman's for 8+ years and they stated that its been declining every year for quit a few years now. I hope they get it together soon, this place could be great!

Owner's Response: Yes, the beach location is fantastic and conducive to enjoyment! So we're sorry that Jarrod was disappointed with the condo. His is the first complaint we've received but it's true that the condo is tired and in need of the renovation that is currently in progress for the whole hotel; several condos at a time. The condition of the condo has been reflected in the low rent that is less, now, than it was 7 yeas ago. After the renovation, the rent will have to be raised. As for food and drinks, they are not as cheap as local restaurants but certainly not expensive for a hotel. And there is no restriction on bringing your own drinks to the condo. Using our Owner's 20% discount, a Pina Colada cost Jarrod $4 - hardly expensive in a beachfront hotel! We hope that we can tempt Jarrod to return to enjoy, not only the fabulous beach experience, but the updated condo, too, by offering him our "returning guest" discount.

Quiet location with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

The hotel staff was amazing as were the ocean views! We traveled here with our 2 small children and it was a great condo for all 4 of us. If recommend it to anyone. It is on the 3rd floor and no elevators so if climbing stairs are difficult, this wouldn't be ideal for you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the very friendly and profesional hotel staff and I trust you also enjoyed the facilities, the beautiful white sand beach and the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. Your comments about the stairs are valid. I would not recommend the condo for aging or infirm individuals who can not make it up two levels from the first floor (European "ground floor") to the third floor ("second" floor). Thanks again, David

Great experience and great vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the bigger resorts in Play del Carmen, but have become quite fond of Fishermen's. We love the smaller resort atmosphere. Everything is easy to get to and you are never far from the beach. It also a short walk into town for food, drink, and activities. However, this is also available at the resort if you choose to not venture out. The beach is the best! We met several families from other resorts that claimed the beach in the front of Fishermen's was better than at their resort. The resort did have non-motorized water sport equipment for use, such as kayaks, but we preferred to just bob around in the gentle surf. My husband and kids had a good time snorkeling on one of the calmer days. The pool was nice and I appreciated some shaded parts in the pool in the afternoons. The swim up bar was also a great touch.

The owner, David was great to work with and made himself available if ever we needed assistance. It was nice to meet him in person after all of the emails sent back and forth leading up to our vacation. It gave us great comfort to know that he was so close and available if we needed anything.

The staff at the resort were all friendly and helpful. We had an issue with the air conditioning mid-week and had a prompt response from staff after reporting it.

We can't say enough good things about our whole experience and hope to return within the next couple of years.

Thanks David!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, Timi, for your comments, especially as they were completely unsolicited. It's gratifying to know that my guests have enjoyed their stay and that they felt good to be able to contact me in the event of any issues so that I could come along and attend to them. I was pleased to hear that the a/c issue was resolved by the maintenance staff, quickly and successfully, but I am now alerted to the possibility of needing to replace the unit soon. So thanks for that helpful comment. When you were staying, here, I was busy with my family, as you know, but it was a pleasure to meet you and Chris, albeit briefly, and I hope to have time to meet with you again, if you return to Fishermen's Village. With best wishes, David

Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four recently stayed at Fishermen's Resort. The week was effortless, starting with pickup at the airport with our own personal shuttle. It was a pleasant surprise arriving at the resort to walk into the open air lobby and have the ocean "smack dab" in front of you! The condo was exactly as pictured/described. The condo accommodated the four of us without difficulty and the two balconies were added benefits which we enjoyed morning til evening. The unit was very clean upon arrival and housekeeping did a fantastic job with daily maid service. The staff was attentive and very helpful. The location was perfect for our family. We spent a few days enjoying a nice quiet time at the resort swimming in the pool or walking down the uncrowded beach with beautiful soft white sand. Other days we would walk the beach or walk the lovely gated neighborhood to 5th avenue. Sight seeing activities during the day were easily accessible from the resort. The owner was very helpful in answering all of our questions and we are looking forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Prior to this review, I had never solicited guest comments. But I was delighted to see Kim and Paul Welch's review because I had suggested to them that, as they had enjoyed their stay so much, I would appreciate them taking the time to write a review. So their comments were very well received by me. And they have already booked for next year, for the same week! There had been some negative comments, earlier this year, from other people staying at the resort, because of insufficient sun-beds. But 50 new sun-beds have arrived recently, so now there are plenty of choices for where to sit. I live close to the resort and am, therefore, available, (unless I'm travelling), to meet guests at the resort and give advice etc. My sincere thanks to Kim and Paul Welch for their review. Best wishes, David
