    "I absolutely love staying here. We have booked it for a month every February for the last 3 years and have booked again next year. It feels like my home away from home!"

  • Great Location, Clean Comfortable unit.

    "Pros: -Gorgeous, clean, modern Unit -Comfortable Bed -Great Location -Oceanside Pool -Not overly crowded Cons -Noise (bass) can be heard all night from clubs. -No bathroom by pool -No wifi in room My Boyfriend and I booked this condo for a week long vacation in Mid November. We were very happy with the unit overall. It looks just as the pictures show. The bedroom is huge and the pillow top king mattress was amazing. What wasn't listed was that the shower in the master bath has a glass wall that looks into the bedroom. This was a great space and had plenty of room. Every two days we received cleaning service and fresh towels. This was nice because with the humidity the towels don't dry out much . There was brand new trundle bed sleeper sofa in the living area (not advertised) which was comfortable and folds out to a full size bed. Cable was provided but stopped working mid trip. Internet was was not provided in the room or by the pool, but was available in the lobby. The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked for cooking and drinking! It came equipped with everything you could need for cooking or making margaritas and drinks. 5 gallon water dispenser was provided which was nice. New AC units in Living and Bedroom were quiet and worked well. The location of the unit in the complex was good it has a view off the ocean and sits about 40 yards down the side of the building from the beach. This unit is not in the center of the building and has no view of the pool area. For the price of the unit the location was great! We really enjoyed the relaxed setting and enjoyed being able to walk down to the pool of beach with our own drinks and food. You can get a massage poolside for $30 and hour per person. There were lots of chairs poolside and on the private beach. Friendly security guards made sure only guests used chairs and made the complex feel safe at night. When we were there the restaurant in the building was unoccupied. The thing that made us not give this a 5 star review was the noise inside the room. In Playa there is one main clubbing street located one block from this complex. Every night the loud music begins around 9pm and goes until 5am. You can hear and bass and rumbling clearly from the bedroom of this unit. Luckily we slept with earplugs every night. The windows had very thick glass but didn't keep all noise out. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would recommend the unit."

  • Perfect graduation gift

    "My wife and I travel to the Caribbean frequently. Always using VRBO and almost always staying at a new location. We are looking for our retirement location. This time we took our daughter and her friend as a graduation gift. Everything with rental unit met or exceeded our expectations. From the beginning of the process until the end, everything went smoothly. El Farro is the perfect location in Playa, and Playa is the perfect town to take college girls. The girls had a great time, and my wife and I feel very comfortable with them, running around town, even at night. Of course, as always we talked with them about exercising good judgment and safety precautions. With that said, they ran around shopping, and I'm sure that they did their share of partying, with absolutely no problems. When we take our other kids to Mexico for their graduation gift, we will stay here again."
