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.

Great place to stay in Playa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo for the month of February and really enjoyed it. Perfect location just one block from 5th Ave and steps to the beach. Yasmine is very professional and great to deal with. She gave great recommendations on places to eat and is very attentive to all requests and needs. If your dealing with Yasmine you have nothing to worry about. Staff at the El Faro are wonderful and very helpful... the concierge, bell staff and pool security were so helpful with anything we needed. A bit noisy at night with the nightclubs but you get used to it and the breeze on the balcony makes up for that. Would have given 5 stars but never did have a working dishwasher although they came twice to fix it and then we just gave up on it. Would be nice to have a few basics in the condo like salt and pepper, oil and coffee for the first morning but otherwise we certainly can't complain about anything. Overall we had a great stay here and would return.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely furnished, comfortable and close to everything! Great pool area and right on the beach. Plenty of towels provided. Nice to have a water cooler so you don’t have to keep running out for bottled water. Restaurants and bars right next door in both directions. It is pretty noisy at night, so you should bring earplugs. We loved our stay!

Beachfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this condo! The beach access is perfect, just feet from the main entrance. Great beach access, as well as easy access to beachfront bars to go to at night or during the day, once of which had live music! Also close to a Walmart if you need something. Great close access to 5th street and the beach. Very clean and updated, great privacy, great balcony with a view toward 5th and of the beach, and we felt safe! There was sometimes someone at the front desk when we came in at night, but sometimes not. Even when there wasn't, we never felt unsafe coming back late. Only cons is it can be loud at night, but we used a sound machine or the tv would help drown out the noise. Also, there is a private parking garage, but we weren't made aware of the cost of it, so they did negotiate a fairer and lower price. The rates were overall reasonable and a good value. The room had drinking water provided, and plenty of towels and beach towels, as well as kitchen amenities. Yazmine was great to work with, she made it a point to meet us in person, and offered fantastic dinner and food suggestions! She was very helpful when we had questions, and responsive. We would highly recommend this place, and would stay here again and again!

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.
