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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!!

Beatifully decorated and very well managed.

  • 5 of 5

Reef 302 in El Faro is a beautifully decorated condo steps from the beach. The photos are accurate. The bathrooms are very nice and quite large. The outdoor space is also quite large and a great place to hang out. The complex itself is one of the best managed properties I've seen. It it SO clean. They literally scrub the sidewalks every day. The location is perfect, very near the hustle and bustle of 5th street with little noise. The owners have everything there you need for the beach, chairs, umbrellas, towels, ice chest, buggy boards. They also have great food recommendations as well. I highly recommend!
