Can't say enough good things about Reef 104 and ElFaro. The condo was very well appointed and clean. Daily maid service was wonderful. The location of ElFaro is great with everything right outside the front door. We will never stay at an all-inclusive resort in Playa again now that we've found ElFaro and your condo. Thank you so much for letting us stay there. We will be back!!

Best Vacation ever!
Best Vacation ever!
We, a family of 4 from Norway stayed in the appartment from 13th - 20th of July. The appartment was just perfect for us. With to boys (5 and 8) the location just beside the pool was really great. The appartment itself has got everything you could possibly need for a vacation, even a dishwasher and washingmachine/dryer. 2 big bedrooms with very nice beds, to big bathrooms, a nice kitchen and livingroom, 3 tv's, a nice terrace to sit in the evening and to eat breakfast at in the morning. The property is also great, with free sunbeds on the magnificent beach, free towels, and location, location, location!! Just at the beach but also just in the middle of the centre of Playa Del Carmen. To be honest, we could not find anything to complain about, and we will definetly stay here again.

Had a great stay!
Had a great stay!
We stayed at this property for 4 nights in July. It was just perfect for our family of 5 with kids. The condo is absolutely wonderful! It is in a great location, first floor, with direct access to the pool, and just a few steps from the beach. The decoration is lovely. It's very well furnished, rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. We loved the big terrace, as some other condos don't have it. The property of El Faro, itself, has an excellent location, one block from la quinta street, where you'll find lots of restaurants and shops. Attention and service was perfect at all times. The beach is wonderful too. We had an excellent communication with the owners, which is very important for us when renting a property. We would recommend it to anyone and will definitely stay here again next time.

Two blocks to Walmart. You can go for morning walk and get fresh fruit!! Once you come you will want to come back! You don't even know you are in Mexico! The food is incrediable at Wicky's!! Everything is great, especially the fish and chips and the burgers!! The staff at Wicky's are very friendly! Can't get enough of this place! El Faro we will be back in Feb. Can't wait!! Great for all ages as you can do sightseeing or lay on the beach, your choice!

We had such a great time in Playa del Carmen. Staying @ the condo in El-Farro was amazing, beach outside your door, shopping steps away, food and drink around the corner. The condo was great, clean,very inviting home away from home.We will definitely go back!!

We stayed at the Ef Faro resort for two weeks over Christmas and New Years, with the whole family (12 people) in two condo's. The location doesn't get any better. So convient to restaurtants, bars, groceries,& entertainment. It was very exciting to be there for New years. The little kids loved the pool and it was just outside our patio door. The condo is very comfortable and has everything you need. The ocean is great to swim in. Very clean and the grounds are very well manicured. A pleasure!

Our family took our first winter holiday together at the El Faro. Very clean with a beautiful view of the ocean. It had all the amenities you needed in a 5 minute walk. The family had great time sitting around the pool or sun tanning on the beautiful white sandy beach, just like the picture's show. Babe's Noodle Bar is just a short walk for same fantastic food. The owner's where true to there word, when they said this is a great vacation spot for your family. We all can't wait too go back. Highly recommend.

A Wonderful Holiday Condo!!
A Wonderful Holiday Condo!!
We had the pleasure of staying at the El Faro resort last August. The property is beautiful, and extremely clean with all of the amenities of home, and the luxuries of a resort. The beach in front is perfect for swimming even for people with small children. Wiki's restaurant is fabulous and the prices are quite reasonable. Try the Hamburger, its great!! There is massage tables on the beach, the pool is very clean and well cared for. You are very close to 5th Ave with all kinds of shopping and restaturants. I highly recommend this as your vacation property.

Year Purchased: 2009
About: We are owners of a manufacturers representative company for HVAC products in Saskatchewan Canada. We enjoy holidaying and spending time with family and friends especially in Playa which seems like a second home to us and our three children.
Why El Faro:
After our first visit to the Mayan Riviera in 2000 we fell in love with the area and kept returning we then decided to purchase our first property at Paseo del Sol in 2004. We enjoy the many great aspects of Playa from the diverse cultures, ease of walking to all restaurants and shops. We find we can enjoy something different every visit and still go back to do our favourite things. The ease of getting to the Mayan Riviera is just another bonus for us and our friends.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
El Faro is one of a kind in Playa as it is 1/2 a block from the entertainment district and one block from the famous 5th ave the unique parts of this as you step inside the complex you feel like you stepped into seclusion as the sounds of the action around the complex just seem to disappear. With the onsite 24 hour security your whole family feels completely comfortable day and night. The huge infinity pool with integrated kids pool and the multiple lounging areas around the pool offers a uncrowded feel. The first class Wickys restaurant make this complex totally unique with its beach club feel by day and high end steak house by night.
