Playa del Carmen is an international vacation spot welcoming people from all over the world. A charming sea-side town that does not include high-rises and mega-resorts. Playa offers world-class everything: charm, cuisine, sightseeing, water sports, ancient Mayan ruins, zip-lining, boat tours, spas and shopping. A lively day-time beach scene with water activities and sports for everyone followed by a laid-back night-time scene with live music, fire shows and candle-light dining by the ocean.

Playa del Carmen and El Faro is easy to get to. Fly into Cancun & either take a 40-minute cab to Calle Sixth and the beach or a luxury bus to the Playa terminal just two blocks from your vacation home. (Alternately, you can fly into Cozumel and take the ferry across the Caribbean and land just a few blocks from your vacation home.) If you'd like, we are more than happy to arrange your airport transportation in a private van delivering you right to your condo door!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay in Reef 106! Huge patio with the pool and beach both just steps away. And a block from the action on 5th! Perfect for our family of 5. Thx.

Relaxing, quiet refreshes the soul!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place that we will love to come back to. Very clean unit. The staff around here is very kind and helpful. The ocean was naughty this trip with the kicking up of the seaweed and piling it up on shore everyday but the crew from the beach worked on it and tried to keep it clear all up and down the beach but it is an endless job. We heard that this happens certain times of the year. Loved that we were close enough to the action and vibe of Fifth Ave but could escape to quiet serenity at our complex.

The only thing I will bring back is a king size fitted sheet as they only have a flat sheet for the bottom and it always pulled out of the bottom of the mattress :).

Excellent dwelling with close proximity to 5th Avenue. Great pool and access to the beach. The condo itself had everything we needed, and our stay was very comfortable!

Clean, Comfortable, and Calm

  • 4 of 5

It's clean, modern, and well equipped. The beds are not that comfortable, but we managed. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. We used the laundry and it worked fine. The pool is gorgeous! Very well maintained. Plenty to do within walking distance. Our water and electricity went out, but there was a downpour for most of the week that we were there. I'm sure that had something to do with it. The staff did the best they could to fix the problem asap.

The condo was comfortable, clean, and well stocked.

  • 4 of 5

Small beach chairs would be nice to have since fewer lounge chairs are now available on the beach compared to when we first started staying at El Faro several years ago. Although the property itself is well maintained, the beach in front of the property is not As nice as it used to be. Erosion has drastically reduced the size of the beach, and the amount of seaweed in the water and accumulating on the beach detracts from the appearance. Something really needs to be done about the erosion or very soon there will be no beach left. Playa del carmen is a fun town with lots of bars, restaurants, and nightlife. Seems relatively safe. However, in my opinion, the recent addition of the large shopping malls on 5th is not a positive thing. Too much of that destroys the atmosphere and character of the town. But overall PDC is a great place to visit.
