About Lorelei

We are owners of a manufacturers representative company for HVAC products in Saskatchewan Canada. We enjoy holidaying and spending time with family and friends especially in Playa which seems like a second home to us and our three children.

Lorelei purchased this condo in 2010

Why Lorelei chose Playa del Carmen

After our first visit to the Mayan Riviera in 2000 we fell in love with the area and kept returning we then decided to purchase our first property at Paseo del Sol in 2004. We enjoy the many great aspects of Playa from the diverse cultures, ease of walking to all restaurants and shops. We find we can enjoy something different every visit and still go back to do our favourite things. The ease of getting to the Mayan Riviera is just another bonus for us and our friends.

What makes this condo unique

El Faro is one of a kind in Playa as it is 1/2 a block from the entertainment district and one block from the famous 5th ave the unique parts of this as you step inside the complex you feel like you stepped into seclusion as the sounds of the action around the complex just seem to disappear. With the onsite 24 hour security your whole family feels completely comfortable day and night. The huge infinity pool with integrated kids pool and the multiple lounging areas around the pool offers a uncrowded feel. The first class Wickys restaurant make this complex totally unique with its beach club feel by day and high end steak house by night.

No Brainer

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly what any family or group visiting the area is looking for. Brand new interior- great view, and very secure-well taken care of grounds. You can throw a baseball and hit the ferry docks, the location couldn't be better. I will never stay in Cozumel again after staying here. The best of playa is out back and ferry to Cozumel out front. First class condo. Don't rent a car, no need

Outstanding week!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been vacationing in Playa at least once a year for eight years now. We started with AIs, moved on to boutique hotels and had been very happy at Playa Maya (down the beach from El Faro) for four years now. They are, however being renovated so we couldn't get in there this year - what a blessing in disguise. We found a few condos here on VRBO and all three of the couples in the group ranked Lorelie's as our #1 choice. After a couple helpful emails we booked it and couldn't wait for our trip. After a quick tour of the condo by the mgmt company we were officially on vacation! The condo was cleaned daily, linens changed once during the week, kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need. The condo itself is spacious, well decorated and beautiful. We spent a lot of time at night on the patio listening to the ocean and unfortunately the rain. It did rain every day we were there thanks to a slow moving tropical depression which would have made the trip much worse had we not been in the condo. I was off diving every day so the rain didn't bother me as much but for the non divers it was great to have the big living room area and patio to hang out between showers. The pool and beach were great, as were the massages next to the pool! Wickie's is unfortunately gone but with all the great places to eat near there, Zenzi right across 10th and the coolers in the room we never were wanting for pool/beach refreshment. (Take advantage of the 10% Zenzi discount cards from the front desk). We couldn't have asked for anything more and look forward to this being the new spot we stay on our annual trips!

Spectacular condo, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We come to Playa del Carmen every year and prefer to stay at El Faro. The location is perfect for everything: beach, night life, dining... We have stayed at some nice condos so far but this one beats them all. It really is spectacular: very spacious, clean and the view is breathtaking! We had some minor problems / questions in the beginning and they were all resolved very quickly. Their management company is efficient and available. We did not have a phone that worked in Mexico, so the front desk contacted management company for us; it was that easy. The condo is also very quiet which was my concern since I don't like noise at night. The pool is very nice. We also feel safe on the beach because security guards are right there. Beach chairs, umbrellas - everything is available.

We love to eat at Zenzi restaurant next door. The food is amazing and it is so convenient: get out of the water, go eat lunch and jump right back in the water. We also discovered a great Italian restaurant this time: Romeo. It is located on the 4th street between 10th and 15th avenue. The salads, pasta, pizza - to die for! We visited it 3 times in a week and would happily go again!

Overall, we had an unforgettable vacation and this condo was a big reason why. Thank you very much, Lorelei!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely condo April 2014 and had a wonderful time. We were three couples and 2 small children and had ample space and privacy. The unit is huge, modern and beautiful, the El Faro complex was safe and well staffed. We had called the propery manager for a minor problem and they handled it quickly and efficiently. The cleaning staff did a great job. El Faro is ideally situated and perfect for our needs. We cannot wait to return! Thank you Lorelei!

Perfect Holiday Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this condo for Christmas week. The condo is beautiful, and I agree with the previous posts that the pictures do not do it justice. The location could not be more central with 5th Ave. only one block away and the pool is basically on the beach. We had 6 adults and twin 2 year-olds and never felt like we did not have enough space. The pool is fantastic, especially the kiddie pool area which is where the twins spent a majority of their outside time. Food was abundant, with Wicky's being our main lunch spot most days. Having Wal-Mart a quick 10 minute walk away was a definite plus for a family with little children. Being from NYC we were hesitant to rent something outside one of the main large resorts, but we would highly recommend this condo for other families looking for something nice and easy.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse is even better than the pictures! The view is amazing! The owner was very easy to work with and they have done an excellent job of stocking the condo with everything you would need. The front desk and concierge workers were very nice and accommodating. The location could not have been better! It is a block from right in the middle of 5th Avenue. It was so easy to walk everywhere. It also has a great beachfront and by far the best pool we saw. Our only disappointment was with the on-site restaurant, Wicky's. The food and service was great but they were out of some items, and unfortunately the nightlife at Wicky's is non-existent. However, the restaurant next door, Zenzi, more than makes up for it. They have awesome martinis! There are two items of very low importance to note: the condo no longer has a hot tub on the balcony and there is no bath tub in any of the bathrooms. I had several questions for the owner pre-trip and she was completely honest with her answers and also provided great information on restaurants. We can't wait to return to Playa and El Faro Coral 302!
