Best Ocean View-Ever!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this unit and a 4 bedroom unit directly below it for a family getaway that included my eighty something mother and two teenage boys. This particular unit has the best outdoor space in the complex. It is within easy walking distance to all PDC has to offer, including the Mega and Wal Marts. As we were there in November and the pool is not heated, there was no real reason to leave the wonderful balcony that is almost on top of the ocean. The sound of the surf at night along with the music from Zenzi next door made for wonderful evenings. The outdoor spa was wonderful but didn't work after the 2nd night but was repaired for the last night. I would have rated this excellent except for the 4 nights without the spa, a TV in the master that did not work at all nor did it have a dvd/bluray player (my husband was ill for a time and a tv would have been greatly appreciated), the pool was cold and the kitchen appliances have a few dents. Housekeeping did a great job (they come every other day). This unit definitely commands a premium price because of it's location within the complex and we chose it hoping everything would be in working condition. Having said this however, we very likely will have our family of 11 once again vacation at El Faro again this year. We had 2 couples in this unit and it was the perfect space for us. I managed to lock myself out of the safe first night and we went out and by the time we came back it was fixed. We have been vacationing in PDC for the past 8 years and this was our 9th trip but first at El Faro. We have seen many changes including a tremendous reduction in the size of the beach directly in front of he complex and down the beach for quite a way. The most beautiful area, Calle Corazon is gone and a mall is going up to join the other malls that are recent additions to the area. We hope this progress doesn't cause PDC to lose the charm it is known for. We do look forward to staying at El Faro again.

Gorgeous views with spectacular sunrises!

  • 4 of 5

Condo has gorgeous views, a spacious balcony with a hot tub, a deep soaking tub, and is attractively furnished with a well equipped kitchen.

Noemi, the property manager, was very responsive and helpful in her initial descriptions and also send useful information to ensure a pleasant holiday. Angie, the concierge, was unusually proactive and helpful in making reservations.

I gave the condo 4 instead of 5 stars because it wasn't well maintained. Although it was impeccably clean and comfortable, the dishwasher and the ceiling fans didn't work. Or at least we were unable to get them to work.

The other drawback is a bar immediately across the street which has a live band from 7 pm to 2 pm every night. The band is especially loud on Fri and Sat night, and the sound of thumping base can be heard in the condo, even with all the doors shut and the air-conditioning turned on. The sound disturbed out sleep and shutting everything up also meant we were unable to sleep with the very peaceful sound of the ocean.

Loved this place...will come back again

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our daughter and her boyfriend just returned from our vacation. I can't say enough about how nice this condo was, very comfortable and had everything we needed. It is just like the photos show. The only hiccup was the hot tub was not working upon our arrival, but the manager finally got it repaired by the end of the week so we could enjoy it. So it goes without saying, the staff does everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Very safe and secure building and area. Locationwise, it was great. We liked Zenzi, the bar and restaurant next door. They had great cover bands in the evening and we could sit on our balcony and listen to the music. Other good restaurants we found in the area, all an easy walk, were Yaxche, Fusion, Mi Tierra and our favorite was Sur just up the block. We are tennis players and found courts to play on a good healthy 15 min. walk away. It was a GREAT family vacation and we will return. Highly recommend!!!!!

Reviewer Comments:

Absolutely most awesome location! Just above the beach sand, looking out on ocean and beach with no obstacles. Didn't even know there were buildings of condos behind you. Free good alternating styles of live music from Zenzi enjoyed out on the patio with cocktails and dinner. Pool would get very warm like a bathtub in afternoon, but we kept the whirlpool temp cool...very refreshing and enjoyable. Condo clean and well equipped. Property management people checked in regularly and prompted addressed any issues we had.
