The Very Best of “Both Worlds”

  • 5 of 5

What a find! This is a spacious, very well-appointed condo sitting on top of a great resort with the best view and beach in town.

The owner is terrific, and the on-site manager, Tara, is absolutely fantastic. She has perfected the rare art of being attentive while giving you complete privacy and autonomy. (I am often taken aback by on-site hosts who, described as “available” or “helpful” are basically hound-dogging you for your entire vacation. We once had one in Galveston who literally pounded on our door—on Thanksgiving Day—because he wanted to change an OUTDOOR lightbulb.) Tara is perfect. By all means, take advantage of their order-ahead grocery delivery service. I was extremely satisfied with all of my items, especially the produce. I never got to meet Luis, but I certainly hope to on my next trip.

The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is completely functional, the fridge is big enough, (sometimes an issue elsewhere), the balcony is 100% usable and super for watching the sunrise. The showers are excellent—roomy and with good water pressure.

The resort staff is extremely hospitable—with one exception: a dining room manager who was exceedingly aggressive and shockingly rude to me at the “welcome” party. She was clearly in the wrong and embarrassed her staff with her behavior.

The star of the resorts’s entire show is Victor, their activities director. He is warm, professional, a delightful conversationalist, and truly dedicated. One rainy day he had three very active young kids fully absorbed in board games, Uno and Jenga—no whining, just laughter. Go to his morning yoga session—you’ll be so glad you did!

I highly and heartily recommend this rental. I know I’m going to go back to this one.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This unit has the best view in the complex! The fresh fruit and wine left out for our arrival was much appreciated. It was nice to have Tara as a local contact. She is great and came by just to make sure everything was going well which it was. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great view. Great location. Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thought we were renting a condo, but upon arrival, we discovered that our condo is located within a resort. All amenities were available to us. Spa. Restaurant. Activities. Pool. Hot tub. Clean beach. Volleyball court. Kayaks. Staff. This was the perfect getaway for my mother-in-law and I. The roomy 2 bedroom condo allowed us to each have our own bed and bath. The kitchen had everything we needed for making our own meals. After a fairly easy walk to Wal-mart, we were able to stock up on food, snacks, drinks, then we took a cab back. Kathryn provides insulated to-go cups, and we were able to mix our own cocktails and enjoy them on the beach. The condo has 3 different air conditioners; one for each bedroom and one for the living area. This made it easy for us to set the temps to our own comfort levels. The linen closet was well stocked, allowing us to grab towels & washcloths as needed. Also in the closet and available for our use were lots of extra hangers, an ice chest, some floats, boogie boards, buckets and shovels for playing in the sand, as well as a tote bag. We were also glad to see that a safe is provided for our use. Kathryn has thought of everything, including some good books.

Tara and Luis are the caregivers. They were excellent at communication before we arrived, as well as after. They checked in on us daily and remedied any issues promptly (clogged drain, light bulb out). A big thanks for the fresh fruit, beautiful flowers and wine upon our arrival! We were made to feel special and welcome from the moment we arrived.

The complex has a feeling of safety. It is located well-within a posh, gated community with security guards. Entry could not be made by vehicle without security clearance (even taxi cabs).

Regarding the beach, Gabriel is employed to clear the beach of seaweed every day. He starts digging a hole at 6am and by 2pm he has buried the seaweed, leaving the beach clean and beautiful. Hardest worker within miles. I am sure of it.

Absalon is the lifeguard, always engaging the guests. At the front entry, Marcial was always smiling, greeting guests by name. All staff were professional and friendly.

The pool, grounds and buildings are clean and refreshed throughout the day.

We did enjoy one breakfast buffet, while there. The food was plentiful and tasty.

Will we go back? Without question. Kathryn, thank you for making our stay and experience in Playa so memorable!

The condo was fabulous! It was exactly as it was advertised. Beautiful inside and out. The location of the property was perfect. The veiw was spectacular. You could spend the day on the beach or go to any park without much trouble. The staff at the Fisherman were very helpful and pleasant. Grounds were always clean and beautiful. I would definitely recommend this condo!

Spectacular blue Caribbean views!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Sunset Fishermen's in Kathryn's unit. We had the most wonderful time, and all the pictures on the site do not do it justice. The resort is in a perfect location. We were able to walk to downtown either on the beach or down the cobblestone streets. Felt completely safe the whole time. Kathryn was wonderful to deal with during the rental process, and Tara and Luis helped us with our every need while there. Luis was there to greet us the night we arrived, which was so helpful and reassuring. They checked with us throughout the week and answered any questions we had, which I'm sure were many! If we ever return to Playa , we hope to stay in Kathryn's unit again. It was a week in paradise.

We really enjoyed the location of the resort. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Tara and Luis were amazing and attentive. Marsiel consistently had answers for all of our questions. Having town so nearby and all the amenities of the resort made for a very pleasant stay.

About Kathryn Lesosky

we are originally from Vancouver Canada and now located in Toronto. We started going to Mexico about 20 years ago and we fell in love with both Playa Del Carmen and Fishermens.

Kathryn Lesosky purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kathryn Lesosky chose Playa del Carmen

Here was the best of both worlds located right on the beach with a hotel on the property. It still is a small boutique gem in the midst of all the sprawling all inclusive resorts on the Mayan Riviera.

What makes this condo unique

We never tire of sitting on the deck and taking in breathtaking view. Relaxing at the beach with a great book and swimmng in the warm turquoise waters.


Car: not necessary

Located on the water with a fabulous beach and the best view from the deck on the property. Our unit is on the top two floors of the facility and there is access to all amenities. Full kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a pull out couch, with 2-1/2 baths. two restaurants on site, full spa and workout center, pool bar and access to kayaks, bikes, boogie boards, paddle boards and hobi cats free of charge. An easy 10 minute walk on the lighted and secure cobblestone streets by the ruins or along the beach to the center of Playa Del Carmen and its restaurants, shopping and bars.
