1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps The Only Beachfront Penthouse In All Of Playa
I'm a beach girl born and raised in Southern Calif. I moved to Colorado and felt land-locked so bought this gorgeous beachfront penthouse so I could always get my beach 'fix' when I needed it. I owned and ran a travel agency called Ocean Summit Travel for over a decade until a back injury forced me to sell my company last year. I specialized in Playa del Carmen, so I know all of the other complexes in Playa and things to do in the area. I don't mind giving advice, so feel free to write or call me.
Pamela purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Pamela chose Playacar Beach
I wanted to be able to get to my vacation home in a few hours of flight time from Denver. I'm not into the towering hotel scene like Miami Beach or Cancun. Playa del Carmen was the perfect blend of beautiful beaches, great shopping and restaurants and centrally located to see ruins, hop over to Cozumel on the ferry and great R & R above all. They limit the height of all the buildings to 3-4 stories so there are no high rises.
What makes this Condo unique
This is the ONLY Beachfront 1 BR penthouse in Playa Del Carmen after doing an extensive search online. (feel free to search for yourself) It's actually a 2 BR penthouse, but we can lock down the smaller 2nd bedroom so couples can enjoy the full oceanview from the master suite and the rest of the condo. Most other 1 Bedroom units have no ocean view from the bedroom. You can read reviews of this unit as a 2 BR on VRBO listing 306688

Great Stay in Playa
We spent nine nights at Fisherman’s Village in January and thoroughly enjoy our stay. The condo was spacious and contained all necessary kitchen supplies. The TV in the guest room did not function and the Internet, as mentioned in other reviews, was spotty. The internet by the pool was much better. Breakfast at the resort was fabulous, lunch and dinner not so much. We usually walked into town for dinner and lunch. The walk along the beach to the Cozumel Ferry and Fifth Avenue took us 10-15 minutes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach was great with very little seaweed. We
recommend staying at Fisherman’s Resort while in Playa Del Carmen.
Thanks for your review Terry and yes the big perk of Fisherman’s village is that we do offer a lobby bar, swim up bar, grill restaurant and regular restaurant plus a full sized kitchen in our units and the ease of walking into town in 10 minutes to select a different restaurant each night. There are no other condo-hotels in Playa del Carmen that offer a fraction of all the amenities that our resort does!
As for the TV not working, I had no idea and will see if the maintenance team can fix it. I try to tell my potential guests that if you need to be streaming, gaming or doing business from within the units...choose a full service business hotel instead. I sure hope travelers are coming to this beautiful destination to relax and get away from all the technology that bombards us at home. The cinderblock walls make the signal disappear inside, but it works fine in the lobby or pool area.
I’m glad you enjoyed your stay!
An incredible location in Playa. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood with a highly attentive staff, the beachfront condo is only a 10-15 minute walk to all the night life and restaurants of Playa del Carmen. The condo could use a little more TLC and the wifi speed can be frustrating at times, but I would highly recommend this property.
Million dollar view was spot on!
Came with my husband for my 40th bday and will stay again! The location was perfect, just away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Playa but not too far. Short walk or quick bike ride to all the action. The beach was amazing and steps away from the condo. Bed was comfortable and loved sleeping with the window open listening to the waves crash at night.
Pamela provided us with a guide and tips for our stay which was VERY helpful. We went to eat at a few of her recommended places as was not disappointed. Her private airport transportation was easy and very professional. For first time visiting it made us feel very comfortable.
Everything was above expectation, the Fisherman's staff was very friendly and the accommodations very nice. Only thing that would have made the trip better would have been a washer/dryer.
Can't wait to come again!!
Jessica, I’m so glad you enjoyed my penthouse and I would welcome you to return again. Yes, unfortunately most of the units in our complex don’t have washer/dryers but if that is an important feature, my other unit in this complex does have a private laundry room! That unit is VRBO 837809. Another service our resort provides is drop off laundry service where they charge you by the weight.
In any case, thank you for your review and for being my guests!
A Great Place!
Just got back from Playa after a week's stay. This condo is very well-located, easy walking distance to Fifth Avenue, restaurants, shopping. Super beach. The condo itself is just as advertised, and the owner's information about the facility and the area was both accurate and helpful. The owner was very accommodating. Condo was clean, well-equipped, reasonably appointed, and secure.
Playa Del Carmen is a safe city, and we roamed about on foot and never felt uneasy.
Very quiet resort, and the staff were also very helpful. We ate out mostly, or cooked in-house. Resort food was, well, resort food. They might boost the wifi signal a bit too :).
All in, a great vacation.
Spectacular setting and walking distance to everything Playa has to offer
I have been to this part of the world numerous times and would not only recommend the warm waters, beaches and people of the area but the unit we rented was perfect for the 2 of us. "Hanging" out over the water and enjoying the sound and sights of the crystal blue Caribbean are peaceful and relaxing. I would rent this unit again, any time of the year.
GREAT vacation spot - the pictures don't do this place justice!!
The location was within walking distance to town, and we could NOT have asked for a better view of the ocean, as well as access to the beautiful beach. The owner, Pamela, was VERY nice and accommodating. The property staff was polite, helpful, and SO FRIENDLY!! We will definitely be back.
Thanks Shayne. It was such a treat to meet you guys and having our stays overlap with eachother. I so hope you guys want to come back to Mexico again. I will do everything in my power to make sure you have an even more fabulous time then 2nd time around.
Cheers and happy travels- Pamela
