"This condo was exactly as we had hoped! Everything was in great condition and perfectly clean. It is within walking distance of everything on 5th Avenue so you don't need to waste your money or worry about a rental car. The caretaker and maids made our stay very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for the limited cooking we did. We did little in-house cooking because eating and drinking are right down the block easily walked in less than 2 minutes!
The Sushi Club is right across the street and is very good. There is also a very nice Italian place just a few steps toward 5th that has great service and food (plus very nice wine and glasses!). We were in Playa for 10 days and barely put a scratch in the restaurants within 4 blocks.
Our favorite pastime when traveling is eating and watching people: This place is perfect for it!!
There is a nice pool on the roof. Nice place to hang out for some sun and swimming but a little too hot for us and we suggested adding a little more shade! The owners took our suggestion to the owner's group. There are beach clubs within a short walk for those that wanted that too.
We could not have picked a better place. One doesn't always get what one expects in Mexico but here you will.
We highly recommend this unit."

"This is the 2nd year we have stayed in this condo at El Faro and we love it. The location is perfect and the condo is very clean and comfortable! The owners make sure you have everything you need for a great vacation! Everything you could want is in walking distance. Shopping, great bars and restaurants and beautiful white sand beaches."

3rd Time's A Charm!! So Were The Other 2, By The Way!!
"Just spent a relaxing week at the Sandcastle condo, my 3rd stay there over the years. I keep returning because the place just cannot be beat. The Elements are very well maintained & constantly being upgraded. They added a second outdoor jacuzzi since my last stay. The location is perfect for my taste. Close to downtown PDC (a short walk or a 5 minute taxi ride), but far enough away to be quiet & tranquil. The unit itself has to die for views & is clean & well appointed. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves...very relaxing!! We had massages at the private beach club, took hikes & swam in the pool & ocean. I enjoy staying at condos because there is plenty of room & you have your own kitchen. I highly recommend The Sandcastle!!"

"My husband, daughter and I enjoyed such a relaxing week in this spacious, beachfront condo. The layout was perfect with two very large bedrooms and a full living room, dining room and kitchen with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beach. The unit was impeccably clean, and the cleaning service provided every 2 days was top notch. The rooftop patio was one of our favorite places to hang out at the end of each day, and such a treat to have our own private rooftop overlooking the beach. The beach out front was great, with lounge chairs ready and waiting each day. The pool was a tad bit on the small size, and when being used by multiple families with small children, it got a bit too noisy and way too crowded for our liking. The location right off 5th Ave was perfect! Shopping and restaurants galore, with so much to see and do, with a different food choice for each night. We did not rent a car, and didn't need one, with taxis at the ready at the top of the block to take you wherever you need. We were so sad to leave that we came home and rebooked for another week this summer. I was so pleasantly surprised by this condo and our wonderful week in Playa del Carmen!"
