Perfect location in PDC!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! Beautiful beach & Beautiful blue water right out your door! Big pool but freezing! Around the clock security! Hugo at front desk helped us with everything we needed!! Walking distance to Everything!! This unit was clean, modern & comfortable! Full kitchen for cooking! (we were 2 adults & 2 kids-)

Massage ladies work a booth at the pool daily. Best yoga in PDC only 2 blocks away, Yogaloft!! Located next to a great beach bar that had fun live band every night, Zenzi. We would definitely book this unit again!!!!

Nice property, excellent staff

  • 4 of 5

We stayed over spring break 2018. The owner was extremely helpful with all our questions and assisted with pre trip arrangements. Once we arrived Silvia was there to make everything perfect. The room was perfect. We had a mishap and Silvia was on it immediately the following day. We never figured out the tv but didn't miss it. Having a first floor room near the pool was great. The pool was comfortable and clean every day. The security guard was kind and helpful when we had questions. Unfortunately the beach was in poor condition and the water was too. A rare influx of weeds kept it very smelly and unusable directly in front of the property. We slept with our windows closed on the first floor and slept well. We had friends on the upper floors that struggled to sleep from the extremely loud club music from a property next door. Thumping music 'til almost 4am nightly wasn't appreciated. We took four trips to Cozumel to visit a friend living there. The close proximity to the ferry was a huge plus for us. The walk was easy by beach or street.

Overall we had an excellent experience at this property. The people made the difference. They were wonderful to work with and made our trip enjoyable.

Wonderful location with a spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

The check in was very easy and quick with Silvia coming over to help out and explain everything to us. The condo is clean and well equipped. It's a real plus to have two bathrooms. You're close to everything on 5th Ave and only a 10 minute walk to Walmart. Being on the ground floor is very convenient as the swimming pool is just steps away. El Faro is well maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. Dealing with Graham for the booking was easy and he always responded very quickly to all our emailed questions. Overall, a great experience and we highly recommend this condo!

Great Stay at El Faro!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a week stay at El Faro Surf 101. To begin, we have been coming to Playa Del Carmen for a number of years, but this was our first time at El Faro. The best yet! Our condo was everything we could have expected and the photos actually depicted what we received. Condo was in perfect condition, well equipped and comfortable furniture. The first floor walkout unit was perfect; steps to the beach and pool. The patio was a great place to sit and just enjoy the weather, a cup of coffee in the morning and a cocktail in the evening. The owner was extremely easy to work with and responds to inquiries immediately. The staff at El Faro was amazing. Although we had no issues with the unit, they stopped by to check periodically and insure we had everything we needed. Jessica, the front desk receptionist was especially helpful, with directions, locating a misplaced item we inadvertently left poolside and just cheerfully greeting us each morning with "wow" service. The complex has 24 hour security although we never saw or experienced any situations requiring it. The last morning, they even stopped by our unit as I was sitting on the patio to say goodbye and wish us safe travels. The grounds and pool are extremely well maintained. As far as Playa Del Carmen is concerned, it is our favorite place to go in Mexico to get away from our cold Minnesota weather. The people are great, the restaurants excellent and 5th Avenue, the Main Street, is always exciting and has something to offer everyone. If you are considering this unit, you can be assured it is as good or better than the photos depict and if it is your first trip to Playa Del Carmen you will return.
