El Faro is in a perfect location. The resort is clean and safe and the staff are wonderful.
We stayed for 10 days in Terry’s condo and it was exactly what we hoped for. We were 2 families of 4 and the unit accommodated us all. It is fully equipped with whatever you would need. We had a fabulous relaxing vacation! 5th avenue is half a block away and the El Faro complex is right on the beach. There are lounge chairs around the pool and overlooking the ocean. There are restaurants and beach clubs in both directions. The ferry to Cozumel is a short walk away. There is security around all the time and we always felt safe. We will definitely return as soon as we can. Terry was very easy to work with and great communication. Don’t hesitate to rent this unit.
A true slice of paradise
A true slice of paradise! Terry is excellent to deal with . Condo is beautiful with a Mayan flair! Everything you need or could think of is there! Illl be a repeat guest!
look no further
This was our third visit to Playa and the second time we have stayed at the El Faro complex. Reef 302 is , far and away, the best appointed home; Terry is always available and extremely flexible. As an example, she had no hesitation in allowing us to extend our stay by a few hours due to a delay in our departure schedule.
The views from the apartment are superb, the balcony is a very nice size and the rooms / bathroom were spotless. The kitchen is very well appointed .
As regards the location, you could not ask for a more convenient base from which to explore Playa. There is a beachside restaurant ( Zenzi) adjoining El Faro with music each evening ---- although we chose to frequent it largely during the day. There are any number of restaurants on the main avenue , which is one block away . For those visiting over New Year's, El Faro is THE location from which to see the fireworks .
There is a set up for (excellent) massages by the pool ( we took full advantage of these,) , pool and beachside chairs and umbrellas are laid out at no extra cost and the staff do a very good job at ensuring that these are for the use of residents only.
All in all, we would highly recommend Terry's apartment and look forward to finding an excuse to return.!!!!
Another terrific stay!
We highly recommend staying in this unit at El Faro in Playa. It's our 3rd trip and Terry's place was pristine as usual. She also helped us arrange transportation from Cancun Airport which was very easy and inexpensive. The location is right in the heart of Playa. Close to the action but not noisy. We couldn't hear a thing from inside. The beach is steps away. Once again we loved it. Thanks!
Impressed once again!
This is our third consecutive year staying at the Evan's condo. Reef 302 has all the comforts of home with a spectacular view. The house keeping staff were wonderful as well. We had an amazing vacation. Condo is in a great location and we enjoyed the beach and the pool. The restaurants on and near 5th Ave were a great treat. The Evan's are great to work with when booking and were able to help us set up transportation. We look forward to staying here again!
Very impressive place to stay!
Being in the center of Playa Del Carmen makes the El Faro a sought after place to stay with the ocean at your doorstep and a great pool besides!!! All amenities at your fingertips including restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers, Ferry to Cozumel, bars, and even casinos within walking distance! Reasonable taxi services will take you wherever you wish to go and walk a little further out and discover Mexican Cuisine at it best! Great Place!!!!
Other Activities: kayaking, boating, parasailing, health/beauty spa
