When we were looking for a vacation home in Playa Del Carmen the biggest consideration was to find the property that would make the best vacation rental and we believe we found this with the newly constructed El Faro luxury suites. El Faro is truly unique in that it has the best combination of everything people are looking for in a vacation rental. Being beach front is a great benefit and not only is it on the ocean but its central location in Playa is simply unmatched. Being located on the beach in the heart of Playa at the famous Lighthouse on 10th street is absolutely perfect. You may leave your car behind as you can walk to everything and transportation is excellent. El Faro is situated on a long stretch of the beach so it is like you are tucked away in an oasis right in the heart of all the action. The famous 5th avenue is so close that you probably won't even break a sweat on the short walk up there even on a hot day. But don't worry even if you do start to perspire the ocean is literally only a few steps away waiting to cool you off. Or if you can't make it past the hot sand to the beach you can stop and take a swim in the amazing pool. All joking aside the setting is quite spectacular and you simply won't find another property in Playa that has such a large pool and garden area that is so close to everything and is situated on such a large section of the beach.
The condo itself has one of the best locations in El Faro and has breathtaking unobstructed views of the ocean. There are direct ocean views from the master bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen and large terrace. The condo is new and is tastefully decorated with a little Caribbean fun but overall it is fairly neutral and has a universal appeal. There is a full size kitchen that is completely equipped with everything that you would expect. Everything is new and high end with nice little touches down to the 300 thread count sheets, however, the condo still maintains a relaxed and comfortable feeling. You'll find all of the amenities to make you feel at home such as air conditioning, wireless internet, flat screen TV's or you can just sit outside on the terrace listening to the waves roll onto the shore and watch the people and boats go by as the quiet breeze whispers to you that this is nothing like home at all...
TIPS: You may want to click onto the 'View Calendar' icon on the right hand side of the page of our listing to check on the availability for the dates you want. You may also click onto the 'View Map' above the calendar to see the exact location of El Faro.
We hope you are able to create some great memories in Playa just as we have and we would be thrilled if you were to choose our condo to use as your home when you visit this special place.

Hi, My name is Shawn and I am originally from California and went to school at the University of California San Diego where I first felt the mysterious draw to the ocean. I now live in Vail Colorado where I was drawn over fifteen years ago by an equal passion to the mountains and skiing. My real estate investments and skiing have kept me in Vail, however, I have never been able to shake the fondness for the ocean. Now with a place in Playa I am fortunate to be able to escape to the ocean once in awhile and live in the mountains that I enjoy the rest of the time.
Shawn purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Shawn chose Gonzalo Guerrero
I chose Playa Del Carmen as it is easy to get to and yet still allows me to experience something so much different from my life in the mountains of Vail Colorado. A four hour flight from Denver allows me to put on a T-shirt and shorts and breath in the ocean and experience the good natured people and the character of Playa. I can only use the condo myself once in awhile so I wanted to find the property that was the most appealing for a vacation rental. Although the property is new I think it will be the most popular property in all of Playa Del Carmen because it is so unique in that it is a high end property with a central beachfront location in the heart of Playa with a large pool area and right on the ocean. I haven't seen another oceanfront property that offers so many benefits in Playa so it was a natural choice.
What makes this Condo unique
It is nice to be only steps from the famous 5th avenue to walk to all of the great shops and restaurants. We have found it more relaxing to have everything so close so you are not running around the whole time while on vacation. It is also ideal to be able to walk to Walmart to stock up on groceries and bring something back to the condo to BBQ out on the terrace. We recently put a washer and dryer in the condo so this has enabled us to travel with lighter suitcases.

Wonderful place to stay in Playa del Carmen!! I hope we are back next year. Plenty of room for family of 4. Walking distance to everything.
Thank you Shawn!!
I am so glad the condo worked out so well for my guest's family and it is so nice to be able to just walk to everything. Hope they make it next year as this is great when my guests keep coming back!
Perfect place for family of 4. Loved how close the condo is to everything! Beach, shopping and restaurants-can’t wait till we can come back
We have so many families that love to stay at the condo because it is so close to everything with so may shops and restaurants along the nearby 5ht avenue. The guests also really love the beach and pool area which keeps people coming back.
Fantasic stay at REEF 202!
Our family of 5 loved Reef 202! The condo is exactly like the photos - no surprises. It is clean and well maintained. Plently of bath & pool towels. We heard no music or parties at night. My kids were on their IPads often at night and never had an issue with the wifi. The condo is less than a minute walk to the pool. We brought a soft cooler and our own Tervis cups for poolside. There is a guard poolside 24 hours who keeps anyone without a wristband off the propery. You can't reserve pool chairs until 8am - and once you do, you can only leave them unattended for one hour at a time. (I always told the guard we were grabbing a bit to eat) We tipped the guard each day and he would go out of his way to help us - getting us an umbrella and even chase the balls when my son accidently threw them out of the pool! Most of the visitors we met in the pool were from Canada and the US. A few from Europe - - All were so fun & friendly! We felt 100% safe at El Faro. The location is amazing...so much just minutes away. We walked to Walmart to stock up the fridge on the first day (just five blocks up the street). Be sure to hit El Fagon for $1.00 street tacos (there are many locations, but one is located one block from Walmart and there was never a line). We asked at the front desk about hiring a driver for the day - and she hooked us up with a wonderful driver who drove us around for 6 hours for $120. We started early and went to Tulum (before the crowds), a very private beach with a secluded cenote, a beach bar for lunch (we bought him lunch and he gave us great conversation). It was a great day and we were home by 2:30! The front desk is VERY helpful. They recommended great restaurants, shops and even a dentist (broken tooth)! The owner of Reef 202, Shawn, was awesome...he answered all my questions quickly. There is seaweed on the beach - but it's pretty much all over Mexico. If you see locals looking through the seaweed, they are looking for money (I had to ask!) - apparently - people lose money from their swims trucks quite often! We went diving & snorkling with Dive Mike and they were great! Overall - we really had a great stay. Playa is a very cool place. But sure to hit the streets one block off the beaten path. 5th Avenue is fun and busling - but there are some really cute & quaint places one block on either side...and be sure to hit the beach bars. Many have fun bands and theme nights. We would go back to Reef 202 again!
It sounds like Amy and her family really made their way around and offered us some great insight and tips. El Fogon is fun to check out with locals and some of us tourists that like to find spots a little off the beaten path. Glad to hear that the condo was just as expected and was the perfect location to get around to all the great adventures they had. It was also nice to hear they were happy with their rental and the communication. Hope to have you stay again soon on your next adventure...
My husband and Instayed here for a week. It was clean, quiet and beautiful. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Beach and pool were perfect. We will stay there again and again.
Its so great to hear that Niki and her husband had such a great week and found the condo so nice. Its great to be able to walk to so many shops and restaurants and guests seem to really enjoy the pool and beach. That will be great to have them stay again and again!
Wonderful Place to Stay!
Our family of four loved our stay at El Faro Reef #202. The condo itself was updated nicely and well equipped with everything we needed. The location was amazing! Right in the middle of everything but not noisy or crowded feeling at all. The view from our balcony was gorgeous too! I had a wonderful massage by the pool which I highly recommend. So many great restaurants nearby as well. We loved Madrez and Zenzi, and a little farther walk but worth it were La Cueva Del Chango and El Fogon. You won't regret booking this condo, and Shawn is incredibly attentive and professional to communicate with too.
Its great to hear that they loved their stay and the condo was well equipped with everything they needed. We really get great feedback about the location which is hard to beat and agree that is is a special spot. Thanks for the tips on some of the places you liked as this will be helpful to guests and you founds some great spots. Thanks so much for your stay and for the nice compliments.
Reef 202 at El Faro Condos !!! Just Wow !!!
We were a group of 6 at El Faro 202 for 10 days. What an extraordinay place to stay ! For those of you that are still not sure between an inclusive or a condo rental...think again ! Best proximity with 5th avenue (5 min walk), yet very quiet at night when back from nightlife, great pool and beach, great condo Reef 202 with a spectacular view ! Condo as already all needed, grocery is 10 min walk, just wow...will rent again for sure... Thanks again to Mr. Shawn Weyrauch, owner, the El Faro facility itself, Yessica, concierge for Caribbean Beach Properties, all were very helpfull and made our trip very easy.
