About Elena

I am a cosmpolitan person: grew up in Soviet Union, lived in Latin America for 6 years, 4 of them in Mexico. Now reside in United Kingdom.

Elena purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Elena chose Playa del Carmen

This was the first foreign property I bought after living in Mexico for 4 years. I bought it while they were still building the hotel. I liked the place and the view to the ocean from my future balcony.

What makes this apartment unique

I like to watch the sunset from my balcony over the ocean: the sky changes quickly in the tropics, depending on the weather the clouds can go from pink to lilac to light blue or become yellow and red. They are different every day. And the water on a sunny day is amazingly turquoise.

Another great week in Mexico

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our second vacation at Fisherman's Village and again we had a wonderful time. We rented our lovely 2 bedroom/2 bath unit from the condo owner. The condo had a beautiful view of the beach and the pool. There was a fully equipped kitchen, so eating breakfast and snacks was very convenient. The entire resort staff is superb! Angy and Victor, Activities Directors, kept us involved with the resort activities, including salsa lessons, pool volleyball, Spanish lessons, water aerobics, etc. Marcial, at the front door, is most accommodating and gracious. We also relaxed around the pool and walked on the beach. While sea grass was a problem at other resorts when we were there, the staff at Fisherman's was cleaning it up every day before we even awoke. It was the cleanest beach in Playa. Overall, another great week in Mexico.

Location makes it worthwhile

  • 3 of 5

Things we loved about staying here:

- Unit was clean, beds were comfortable and a large 5 gallon jug of fresh water was provided upon our arrival.

- Lifeguard and Activities Directors were GREAT. Always making sure the guests would get involved in beach volleyball games, salsa dancing, water fitness classes, guacamole making. These two gentlemen were the apple of the resort's eye.

- Loved the location! Neighborhood is just gorgeous. We walked almost every night along the cobblestone Bahia del Espiritu Santo to the mercado for live acoustic music and every morning to Starbucks by way of the beach. Playacar is filled with gorgeous stately homes, all with their own unique stylings/character. The neighborhood is filled with iguana, agouti, coati, stray cats. My kids love looking for the indigenous wildlife and it was right out the front door. Reasonable taxi trip away is local cafe El Fagon; the carne asada is to die for, Walmart for necessities, EXPLOR for a fantastic adventure that deserves it's own page of glowing reviews, Coba Ruins and neighboring cenotes for memorable quieter adventures.

- The view from master bedroom picture window and the balcony on main floor. Gorgeous views of a very special beach, the pictures don't do it justice. Exquisite.

What we didn't like:

- Hundreds of 1x1 tiles are missing from the pool. Impossible to see from pictures advertising the rental and or resort and also impossible to miss when you're standing in the pool. Our son laced his foot open on a sharp edge.

- Air conditioning units leaked constantly. They left puddles on the countertop in the kitchen and puddles upstairs in bedroom on the floor near the bathroom. Total hazard for those waking up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.

- Water pressure was decent, but rainfall shower head in master bath needs replacing. No rainfall, the insert that separates the water into drops is coming out of the fixture so the water just spills over the sides. Bleh. It's an easy fix, there's a home depot nearby and I was disappointed everytime we used the shower, which is daily.

- Pushy staff at front desk that wanted our personal information, even though we were renting through vrbo... and every other staff member that also wanted it, every time we ordered a meal or a drink from the bar.

- Sleeper sofa in living room is somewhat hard and uncomfortable.

- Some ant appearances in kitchen, even though we were on an upper floor.

Beautiful Condo! Great view! Close to town.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this condo. It was right up front with an amazing view from the balcony and also the master bedroom window. The beach is clean and right outside your door! It's a small condo community quiet and relaxing. The staff is all happy and helpful. We walked most days to town for breakfast and dinner it's a great walk along the beach or road. The condo is in a great spot to just stay and relax or walk to town or to the ferry for a day in Cozumel or rent a car and visit many ruins and beaches along the coast! We had a wonderful trip in this area! Hope we can stay again soon!

Great location & view

  • 4 of 5

This condo had a great view. The Fisherman's Village resort do a great job of attending to your needs. The only minus was the water pressure was not great in our condo. The air conditioner upstairs starting leaking on the last day we were there. was great. We would stay there again.

Many maintenance issues

  • 2 of 5

The good: The view from the unit is one of the best at the resort. And the resort grounds are very nice, were not crowded, and there were many things to do that were included as a guest. Playa Del Carmen is very affordable, made even better by the favorable exchange rate.

The bad: Maintenance issues cropped up from our first night there. Water was leaking from the upstairs AC, which had created quite a puddle. The finish was somewhat worn off the tile floor, which told me this has been an ongoing concern. They weren't able to fix this until the following day, so we spent the 1st night in the downstairs bedroom. The water pressure was very low in both showers from the first night. Despite the maintenance workers attempts to fix these, the AC still leaked but did work well enough for us to use the upstairs bedroom. The upstairs shower never did work properly and wasn't usable. The lower shower did work well enough to use, but the hot water wasn't functioning by the fourth day. The low water pressure created constant issues for flushing of the toilets as well. Sometimes they would flush, and sometimes not. We tried to keep the owner and on site staff informed of all issues, but at some point, you don't want workers in your unit every day you're on vacation. Bottom line, the unit is old and needs remodeling. I had read this re other units at Fisherman's, but was hoping that wouldn't be the case here.

PDC is a busy town. We will choose elsewhere to stay next time we're in the area.
