El Faro means Lighthouse and this lighthouse has been a landmark in Playa del Carmen for many years and is still a working lighthouse. Residences El Faro Condominiums has incorporated the lighthouse on the property.

Our BEACH FRONT condo is only 35 steps to the beach and 170 steps to the FAMOUS 5th AVENUE which is full of exciting restaurants and shops.

The beach you see from our condo offers swimming, wind-surfing, parasailing, scuba diving, jet-skiing, and most important a relaxing day on the beach.

Our Condo has a fully equipped modern kitchen including a George Foreman multi purpose grill, or we have a Weber Gas grill on the balcony.

We have tried to incorporate the wonderful Mayan Culture in our wall painting in the living area in hopes you feel the real sense of Mexico.

There are many activities close by including Jungle tours with zip-lines, water/activity parks, Mayan ruins, cenote diving and much more. Come join us for a great vacation.

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!

Christmas and New Year at El Faro, Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute wonderful time at Terry's condo over the holiday season. We enjoyed all the little extras that was available for us. The water cooler was absolutely awesome and it even dispenses hot water for tea and coffee. The location is absolutely spot on. You can walk everywhere from here. The ferry terminal is a little to the south and daytrips to Cozumel was so easy. We watched the New Year's fireworks right from the boardwalk and had an awesome time eating at all the restaurants right on the beach with your feet in the sand. The beds were great and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to cook an awesome meal. The concierge and everyone working there was extremely helpful and always willing to help or point us in the right direction. This is the best condo rental available in Playa del Carmen and were lucky enough to enjoy every bit of it. We are for sure coming back.

There's a reason we keep returning

  • 5 of 5

I think this is the 4th time that we've rented this particular unit. We rented once directly through Terry before RentalsYourWay/Caribbean Beach Properties managed it, and 3 times since. We like this particular unit because it is in the Reef building and just one unit in from the beach, plus the view! It is ecorated in a cool Mayan theme, has all the amenities you need for a vacation rental,, and the beds are comfortable. We'd obviously come back here again for a 5th time. The location is great too.
