Fantastic property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first time at El Faro and we couldn't be happier. The location was perfect, the beach was beautiful and the condo had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The front desk staff and housekeeping couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. We were sad to leave and will definitely be back as soon as possible!!!

Fabulous Time

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything we expected just like the pictures show beautiful. The location on 5th Avenue was fabulous. The pool was Awesome. The wifi was sporadic and slow so make sure you have enough mobile data other than that would definitely rent a condo over all-inclusive again. Weather the week April 21st-28th was great upper 80's only rained 2 days around 4-5pm for about an hour. The seaweed was only a major nuisance the first few days but cleared up and we were able to access the ocean. Thank you for sharing your home.

Families with young kids 5/5

  • 3 of 5

For families with young kids this unit and complex is a 5/5. Location is perfect. Right in the middle of everything, one block from 5th Ave and right on the beach. If you have young kids you will not find a better location, complex or pool. I looked and I promise the location is outstanding. Absolutely everything you need from Starbucks to shopping, restaurants, walking, music, activities and more is right there. Heck, Walmart is only five blocks away. Tough to swim right out front because of tons of seaweed but simply walk up or down the beach a few hundred feet and it was great. Seaweed is an issue everyplace so don't let that worry you. Ocean was warm and beautiful.

If you have young kids who want to enjoy the pool a lot and have beach access so close then this unit is perfect for you. If you have a couple of families that want to rent units close to one another then again this is perfect. Pool is big, clean, well maintained and never crowded. A great big pool for the kids and a nice balcony 20 feet from the pool for the parents to hang out on.

For couples or couples with older kids the unit is probably not the best. It is truly a unit for families with younger kids. It is starting to show its age and the furniture and décor are dated. Master is very nice but beds are crazy short (I am six feet and my feet were totally hanging over the end) but comfortable. Find a unit on a higher floor with a view that is better furnished and decorated. I don't mean this to be a negative but I think this unit is for families with young kids.

Local staff was very helpful and pleasant and for sure the complex is safe and very clean.

Great location. Bottom floor was great with walkout to pool. The view and the staff were amazing. I would definitely stay at this property again. Close to 5th Avenue and nice restaurants and bars close by.

Excellent stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The view was outstanding, would recommend this unit. Close to 5th, with all the restaurants but also on the beach with great views. It's quiet and has the conveinence of having the kitchen by the pool. Perfect family vacation.
