  • Heaven in Playa car

    "this unit met all our expectations. The staff was very attentive and helpful and the restuarants were great and really reasonably priced. The beach beds were the best for lying around in the sun. It was so easy to get around from there and beautiful to walk either on the beach or thru the exclusive residential area of playa car. There is so much to do in the area you will never get bored. Although a little boredom on the beach is kind of special too. We will definitely be back. Barb"

  • Can't recommend this place enough

    "Such a great location! Playa del Carmen is a city, but this condo is on a quiet leafy road - really nice cafes for breakfast, and cute little bars around the corner. Literally on the beach, which was a bit quieter and nicer then 50 metres down more into town... Loved our own open garden... Very spacious, would love to return again. Thank you for making our holiday so much more enjoyable :) P.S we were here for BPM festival, Mamitas club and a few others are literally around the corner but not too noisy..."

  • El Faro is the place to stay!

    "It was my first time in Playa Del Carmen and El Faro was the perfect place to stay. It's on the beach and so close to everything that's happening. You don't need a taxi unless you decide to go on tours/excursions. The staff is super friendly and the units are nicely decorated and very up to date. Highly recommended!"

  • Fantastic Condo in the Best Building in Playa Del Carmen

    "If you want to visit Playa Del Carmen, I don't know how you could do any better than this. It was a wonderful experience from the time we arrived to the time we left. This condo is located just steps away from 5th Avenue. You'll never run out of new restaurants to try or shops to explore. The local management company (Caribbean Beach Properties) employs some very friendly people. They connected with us multiple times and responded to the few issues that we had almost instantly. They even had the unit ready before 1:00 (official check in time is 3:00) despite the fact that another family had just checked out that morning. We also loved the free drinking water that they supplied. The condo was in beautiful condition and well furnished. It has a true wrap-around patio and beautiful views from two different angles. There's only a few spots in the entire unit where you can't see the ocean. Comfortable beds and good air-conditioning meant that we slept quite well during our stay. I only have a few complaints about this unit. The secondary bathroom often had a sewer gas smell, the master bathroom has no door (no privacy if someone else is in the bedroom), and the condo's patio is accessible from the public hallway (so you have no security if you leave a door open for fresh air at night). Also beware that staircases around the property lack proper handrails and the pool can be quite difficult for those with disabilities to enter and exit. Other than these few things, our stay was perfect. We'd do it again in a heartbeat."
