About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom On The Beach With Amazing Roof Deck

Special Offer: 15% discount for booking six months in advance. Please inquire!
Beachfront penthouse boasting one of the very best locations in Playa del Carmen, you need look no further than our “Rooftop Retreat” at El Faro Residences. Elegant and spacious, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo has been tastefully and artfully decorated. “Rooftop Retreat” penthouse is comfortable and luxurious; high thread count linens, satellite TV including audio channels, in suite WIFI, an ocean view balcony overlooking the gorgeously designed and landscaped pool, and a fully appointed kitchen await you. The lower deck, outfitted with a Webber barbeque and shaded seating, is the perfect spot to watch the cruise ships early morning while sipping your coffee, or perhaps a late afternoon cocktail while enjoying the last rays of sunshine on the Caribbean. In addition to the lower deck, 800sq feet of roof deck with uncompromised views of the ocean, complete with a dining and spacious lounging area, shower and toilet, as well as a plunge pool and gorgeous potted plants, are yours to enjoy.

And while there may be other great condos in Playa del Carmen, you can’t beat this location. On a pristine stretch of beach, one block off the famous 5th Avenue walking street, El Faro Residences holds one of the most sought after addresses in Playa del Carmen. It is not possible to be more in the heart of things, AND in absolute comfort. Everything you could possibly need is within a three-block radius, but of course, there’s much more to see if you venture further.

Whether you’re here solo, with your partner, family or friends, seeking R and R, cultural enrichment, golf or adventure, “Rooftop Retreat” is a fabulous place to come home to. Thank you for taking the time to consider our property. Wishing you a great vacation!
*If you’re looking for additional rentals, we have other properties in the same complex. Please inquire!

Specific amenities include: Daily maid service, water cooler, local cell phone with pay as you go credit, 24 hour on site security and front desk staff, all linens and towels, access to gym facilities, pool loungers, on site beach club and restaurant, self serve laundry or send away laundry service (for a very small fee), on site concierge to help with arranging taxis, tours etc.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: We divvy up our time between Canada, a little travel, and El Faro. Our good friend and excellent property manager Stephane takes care of our property for us when we are away.

Why Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
After visiting and enjoying the area for many years, the opportunity to purchase a condominium at my favorite location in Playa del Carmen came up. I was increasingly wishing to escape the Canadian winters so the decision was easy. And because I can't be here full time, I've decided to share my little piece of Caribbean paradise with others.
