Recent El Faro reviews

  • 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."

  • perfect

    "just returned from a week in Playa del Carmen that was perfect. Friends stayed at El Faro last year so I knew I wanted to be at this location, and Reef 403 was amazing. Everything is exactly as you see in the photos and Tonya and her staff were great. They checked in with us several times to see if we needed anything and the one request we did have was taken care of immediately. I travel to Playa with a large group annually and will definitely be staying here again!!!"

  • 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 condo; beautiful location!

    "Four of us just returned from a week in Shawn's condo. It was a great place to stay; the condo was completely furnished and so comfortable and clean. The location was the best. We walked to 5th Avenue every night for dinner and shopping. Also walked to Walmart and Mega to pick up some food and they are both an easy walk. Shawn was super to deal with and so helpful. This was my first time to use VRBO and couldn't ask for a better experience. Highly recommend El Faro and Shawn's condo."
