Gonzalo Guerrero Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

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 just 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.

There is an onsite restaurant named Wickys that will provide room service, fine dining indoors, or treats on the beach.

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.

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.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Evans condo. It was just as great this year as it was last year. Terry is so easy to work with which made our travel plans a breeze. Everything you need is right there in the condo including a gas grill. We had a fabulous 10 days with spectacular views from the balcony. The housekeeping staff did an excellent job! We are already talking about coming back next year! Thank you Evans!

A Great Place to Stay in Playa del Carmen!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay at the Evan's condo. Everything was just great, and would highly recommend this condo for your next vacation. The condo is clean, well maintained and has all the amenities you could ask for! The location is also perfect for exploring the sites and sounds of Playa del Carmen! After many years of All Inclusive vacationing, we have discovered the joys of Condo vacations...and we love it! We enjoyed lazy mornings with coffee and breakfast on the beautiful balcony, afternoons lounging by the pool or ocean (and no need to worry about getting up at 7:00am to put your towels out on a chair here!), and evenings strolling along Quinta Avenue trying out the different dining experiences. You can believe all the fabulous reviews of this condo - you will get your money's worth and more here!...and working with Terry was a dream! Thank you so much to the Evan's family for sharing your piece of paradise with our family!

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at El Faro Reef 302. This condo is in a great location, very clean and beautiful! Terry was a pleasure to work with, very easy process and the information she forwarded with regard to entertainment, food, etc. was spot on. Plus loved having access to condo's coolers, chairs, grill, water games and equipment. Condo wireless was fantastic and rental people and front desk a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this place over and over again and also will spend my next vacation in Playa at same location/condo. Thank you Terry and Stephen!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Terry's place for a week with our three kids. The location is perfect! We were right on the beach. The views were amazing. The kids loved having the pool and the ocean to swim in. The staff was always helpful setting up chairs for us. We were right off all the action of 5th, however, we couldn't hear any of the noise.

The condo was set up perfectly, very clean and had everything you could ever need. The property managers were very nice and helpful. They were always checking in to make sure everything was ok and if we needed anything. We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner than later!

Well Equipped Comfort in the Heart of Playa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Terry's condo and communication leading up to our stay was great. It is very well equipped, clean, and beautiful. Satellite TV, vonage phone, wifi, fully equipped kitchen. It was everything a family could need, even if we didn't use a lot of it because we enjoyed trying new restaurants and exploring in town. There was even NFL games in English. The property management group was a good resource while we were there and were eager to help, but we did have some maintenance issues with the AC in the guest bedroom. Otherwise it was perfect. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. Hopefully next time the on-site bar is open. That's probably the only thing that could've made it any better. The driver Terry recommended was very nice and professional as well as being affordable compared to other transfer companies. He even stopped for us to get a few groceries/beverages on our way from the airport. Thanks for a great vacation and we'll keep you in mind next time we're travelling with more than just the 2 of us.
