Recent El Faro reviews

  • Great place for family vacations at Playa Carmen

    "Excelente location at the beach and a few meters from la quinta avenida. Clean, modern and well mantained condo. Staff office very friendly and helpful and is just crossing the street. Accesible price for a family of 7 in christmas and new year season. Just remember that check out time is 11am on departure day (probably too early as compared with other places). Booking process is simple and efficient. I recommend this place, I´ll come back for sure."

  • Outstanding week!

    "My wife and I have been vacationing in Playa at least once a year for eight years now. We started with AIs, moved on to boutique hotels and had been very happy at Playa Maya (down the beach from El Faro) for four years now. They are, however being renovated so we couldn't get in there this year - what a blessing in disguise. We found a few condos here on VRBO and all three of the couples in the group ranked Lorelie's as our #1 choice. After a couple helpful emails we booked it and couldn't wait for our trip. After a quick tour of the condo by the mgmt company we were officially on vacation! The condo was cleaned daily, linens changed once during the week, kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need. The condo itself is spacious, well decorated and beautiful. We spent a lot of time at night on the patio listening to the ocean and unfortunately the rain. It did rain every day we were there thanks to a slow moving tropical depression which would have made the trip much worse had we not been in the condo. I was off diving every day so the rain didn't bother me as much but for the non divers it was great to have the big living room area and patio to hang out between showers. The pool and beach were great, as were the massages next to the pool! Wickie's is unfortunately gone but with all the great places to eat near there, Zenzi right across 10th and the coolers in the room we never were wanting for pool/beach refreshment. (Take advantage of the 10% Zenzi discount cards from the front desk). We couldn't have asked for anything more and look forward to this being the new spot we stay on our annual trips!"

  • great unit

    "This is a great unit for family or friends. Great unit, great pool, and right on the ocean. Also nice because 5th street is right there and loaded with restaurants and shopping."

  • 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."
