The Uruguay international capped a special season by scooping the accolade after scoring 30 goals in 31 Premier League appearances.
Suarez was unable to help the Reds avoid a 2-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield earlier on Sunday before travelling London for the PFA ceremony.
And the 27-year-old striker was flattered to see off competition from his team-mates Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge, as well as Eden Hazard, Yaya Toure and Adam Lallana.
“The Premier League is full of really great players and so it is a great honour when these players recognise your work on the pitch,” Suarez said.
“I always try my best for the team and it is nice to get awards but really this is for my teammates and the staff at Liverpool, because without their help I wouldn’t have this prize.”
Suarez also posted a video on Youtube after winning the prestigious award on Sunday.
