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.

Nice place, but very noisy!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the unit is clean and comfortable. However, we arrived 2 hours past check in and our room was just starting to be cleaned. Also, I would highly recommend renting a unit on the top floor...you hear every noise from above you as well as outside.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Im so sorry about the late check in. As we do our best to have the property ready upon each guest arrival sometimes the previous guest does not honor the check out time and then housekeeping is late in getting the condo properly prepared for the next guest. As far as 1st foor noise from the condo above- renting a penthouse does mitigate any noise from above and offer great views, but it can be a trade off for easy come and go access of 1st floor. Please come again-and rent the top floor! Susan Mattingly Playa Luxury Rentals

Love El Faro

  • 5 of 5

Coral 103 met our needs very well. I love being on the bottom floor for easy fast access to beach and pool. Keep in mind master bedroom has the only safe and washer&dryer. Easy for a family. A little more coordination if your staying with another couple. Super great!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Coral 103 is a great unit. It's clean and modern, and well equipped. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The management may want to replenish the wine glasses. Im a great cook, and I was satisfied with the knives and cookware. The oven works well. The outdoor BBQ grill does not. We borrowed the next door neighbor's.

The bathrooms are immaculate, but I found the dripping shower annoying. Have someone check it out! We used the laundry and it was fine.

Staff is very gracious and accommodating. Beach is good, but be careful of the rocks! Stay to the left side of the beach to swim. The pool is gorgeous! Very well maintained.

Location is ideal! Plenty to do within walking distance. Taxis are everywhere and reasonably priced. USE PESOS!! You'll save money.

This was my second time renting this unit. I love it because it's easy for me to get around, being that I have arthritis. I recommend it for seniors or families with babies in strollers.

It can get a bit noisy at times, depending on the neighbors, but it's pretty quiet after 10 or 11 pm. There is no street noise. No loud music.

I will go back again next year!
