About Stephane Blouin

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.

Stephane Blouin purchased this condo in 2010

Why Stephane Blouin chose Gonzalo Guerrero

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.

Wonderful Holiday Stay

  • 4 of 5

Family of five stayed here over the holiday. Loved the condo, loved the central location, loved the pool and the beach, loved how security made sure nobody but guests were using the pool or beach chairs. The condo is very well appointed, beautiful and comfortable. If you want to stay on the beach, you really couldn't have a better location. One block from all the activity of 5th Ave. and just about in the heart of the town. Walmart is straight up the street about 5 blocks (7 min. walk), so it was very easy to get everything we needed for the condo. Stephan made the whole process very simple. Would definitely stay here again and can't wait to go back to Playa.

Excellent family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here in March, with 3 kids under 10. The weather was amazing and the accommodations were excellent. The comfortable suite fit us well, it was spacious and clean. The bathrooms had ample room and were well appointed.The beds were comfortable and the rooms were good sizes. The view was amazing overlooking the gorgeous pool area and of course the amazing beach. There were many beach chairs by the pool and more to set on the sand, someone was always available to help with the umbrella placement. The restaurant downstairs and the neighbouring one are both excellent, poolside fish tacos are great at lunch by the pool. The main strip of shopping and restaurants was only a block away just far enough to be away from it, but close enough for the a morning coffee run. Xcaret park was a short cab ride away, we highly recommend going there for a day excursion it was amazing for us adults and our kids. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and daughter for our honeymoon. The place is amazing. Stunning views of the ocean, huge patio, spacious and nicely decorated interior. The Main Street for restaraunts and bars is only a block away, yet the suite is quiet, and you can hear the ocean waves on the beach. The complex also has a huge pool which overlooks the beach. Scuba diving companies next door too, which as a diver was perfect. Highly recommended.

Exceptional accomodations in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of renting this beachfront apartment for a week of vacation and I cannot speak highly enough about our experience. The facilities were fantastic - well-maintained, clean, stylish and very comfortable. The apartment itself was the same - very clean, stylishly furnished, quiet at night, spacious and very comfortable for 3 couples. Anything we needed was provided in a timely manner - extra towels, extra water jugs, etc. And the location is perfectly central in walking distance to many exceptional restaurants and bars, not to mention just steps from the pool to the shoreline.

I hope my family can return soon for another vacation where we felt right at home and yet pampered at the same time. I highly recommend a stay at Oceanfront 405 for families, couples and even friends looking to enjoy the Playa del Carmen area.

Spring Break 2015

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I shared this unit with another couple and were completely satisfied with our stay. The pictures we took looked exactly like the listing, the location was about the best you can get to the center of everything in Playa and the staff was wonderful. The condo was spacious and elegantly appointed, maid service came daily and there was fresh water supplied for us. I already miss having my coffee on the huge balcony and listening to the waves crash from my ocean front room. My daughter was so excited to have her own bathroom in her room! El Faro was the perfect size to be able to have a good size beach just for us. The security here was great and kept good control of people trying to crowd the pool and beach area and we were always able to find beach or pool chairs even during spring break.

We did have a mix up with booking through Dream Zone Travel, but Stephane was more than gracious in making sure we had a great room and we were compensated for our trouble. I think we got a better room actually :) There are a couple minor repairs that need to be done on the microwave and one of the master sink faucets, but nothing we couldn't live without. Also, there was no phone available for local calls as described, also not a big deal, the front desk made a call for us when we needed it.

While here we did many things. We took the ferry to Cozumel, had a private chef cook dinner for us in our room, swam with dolphins, took a private tour that included Tulum, zip-lining and snorkeling in a beautiful cenote. The greatest part of this location was the close proximity to 5th Avenue and all of the restaurants, shops and nightlife that it has to offer.

I wouldn't hesitate to book here again through Stephane. This vacation ranked among the best we've ever had. Thank you for the memories!
