This is a small resort located in a gated community called Playacar. So there is some security. The resort is right on the beach, has a pool, exercise room, 2 restaurants on site, can get bicycles and kayaks. The staff (desk, concierge, waiters, bar, maid, activity staff, towel guy) is excellent, some speak some English but they will do anything... More

Considering this is an "All inclusive" style hotel, they have two different areas for the different food services they offer: italian, grill and snack bar. The restaurant's staff is pretty good in general, but it worth a separated mention Massiel Descmoctt, she gave us a very warm and always helpful service, specially to our baby, she was very nice and...

The new manager is making some much needed improvements. Still need to improve breakfast buffet...please more American food. The big problem...we asked for a specific room location 8 months ago and despite the fact that the resort was only partially full...they did not honor this request. We are members there but they still seem to cater to guests from their... More

The only negative was the consierge Araceli, who basically threatened us with giving us a crappy room unless we went to the Tres Rios timeshare presentation, so we went. Loved the overall location and cleanliness of the resort. I did not eat there , my preference is to go eat in town. I found out that there are several condos... More

I visited Fisherman's on Monday, April 7th. My friends and I asked the beach helpers to open the umbrella. He did. The wind picked up the umbrella and propelled it across my friend who was sitting in the shade and impelled my side. They had NO medical staff on site. Thankfully my friends were nurses.

As the title states the resort and staff are wonderful. Well maintained, clean, beautiful beach and views. The staff members, Lucio, Marciel, Adan, just to name a few, were always very attentive, courteous, and welcoming. We are members of VIP/Sunset Group and not a particular one of their resorts.

Great vacation, beautiful location. Amazing and friendly staff - Marcial at the door; Rafael, Victor, Anselmo our waiters; Jose behind the bar. Looking forward already to next year. Food was excellent, only suggestion for improvement would be more of a selection of wine, for instance a chardonnay. Marty M.
