Excellent location on the beach!!!

  • 3 of 5

This condo was in the perfect location for walking to restaurants, shopping and the ferry. Yazmin was an excellent host and helped tremendously get me there as it can be a challenge to find.

The air worked perfectly in the condo. Bed was ok and pillows were soft. The air blow directly on your face when you sleep.

The condo is close to several scuba shops so heard a lot of clanking oxygen bottles.

Perfect location, not good for more than 2 people

  • 4 of 5

This was my second time in Playa Del Carmen and in my opinion the location of the El Faro condominium complex is the best !!! It is literally 1 min walk from the 5th avenue street where you find hundreds of restaurants and stores, 10-15 mins walk from Walmart, 10 mins walk to the Ferry to Cozumel, and right on the beach. The building itself is very quiet and it felt like it was only 70% occupied which was perfect. If you dont like too quiet then you can always visit the beach bar which was right next to El Faro and had loud live music at night. We always saw security personnel on the grounds who were keeping an eye on the guests since the hotel is open to the beach where lots of people walk by. The unit where we stayed was 406, which had a wonderful view of the beach. The inside of the unit seemed recently renovated, it had lots of space for 2 people and lots of light, the master bathroom and shower were oversized. The things we didnt like were: (1) the windows looked very dirty, it would be good if they paid someone to wash them since it was nice to look through the windows (2) the water presure of the showers was very bad, we could probably take normal showers only 30% of the time, my husband was particularly annoyed by that (3) we had our son with us and had asked before whether the unit has a guest bed, they had told us there was a sofa bed that comfortably sleeps 2, but the reality was their sofa bed could not even sleep our 7 year old son, it had a full size spring mattress that was so uneven and it was impossible to sleep on. Our son had to sleep with us on the king size bed (4) property management is only available from 9am till 6pm so if u need an extra blanket or pillow at night you cant get that, and even though they seemed friendly they were weirdly inefficient. It took them 2 days to bring me some shampoo and i had to ask twice.

Overall, we may consider staying there again mainly due to the great location and the quietness of the complex.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

I had a great experience at El Faro. The unit was had a nice view and comfortably large. There were a couple of items in the unit that needed maintenance but when the issue arose, Yasmin sent people over immediately to have them rectified. I was very pleased with the response. I would return again and recommend this place!

El Faro is an older resort, well maintained, and in the heart of it all.

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Playa DEL Carmen. El Faro is located on the beach one block from 5th avenue and ANYTHING you want to do, or buy. The beach bar right there is FABULOUS, not only for great drinks, but the food was awesome.

I suggest bringing your own towels and bath rags. We each had one apiece, all week. Also, bring your own soap.

We made a quick trip to Walmart, via Taxi, and picked up a few things. (I.e. Coffee, sugar, drinks)

Our A/C was not working when we opened the room, but I had requested Jasmine to accompany us to see the room before we accepted. She immediately had someone from maintenance come up. After a couple of hrs, he had it working. Jasmine also sent up a fresh jug of water. She will take care of you for your needs.

Some friends were staying at Grand Sirenis, but came everyday to hang with us due to our location.

Fabulous restaurants up and down every street. Everyone we tried had wonderful food and drink.

Don't be afraid to take the ADO bus from airport to PDC. Takes about an hr and cost $11/each. Very comfortable. We took a bicycle taxi to El Faro, about 5 blocks, for $3, from the bus station.

We also spent all USDs and used credit card. No problems.

If you want sand between your toes, great food and drinks, El Faro is your place.

Amazing view, beautiful property with great location to all the things in Playa

  • 4 of 5

The unit has a amazing view and the breeze never stopped while we were there, the properties pool is very nice and the security personal where friendly and helpful by getting small tables for us to rest our drinks on when using the chairs on the beach. Ton's of close restaurants and one I would recommend close to the unit but not on 5th is Plank, great ambience and service.

Walmart, the ferry to Cozumel, and a local rental car agency all are within walking distance.
