Excellent! Comfort and Quiet! And Disability Review

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week here! This place really delivers! Large, very comfortable, right on the beach so you could wake up and go to sleep with the surf. Nicely decorated and the owner has clearly given a lot of thought to decor and guest comfort. The kitchen was so well-supplied;it had everything you could possibly require.

We decided on this condo because we wanted to avoid the noise of all-inclusives and, except for the last day, we got it. The condo guidelines stressed quiet and respect for other guests and we appreciated that. No power boats, just paddleboarders which was a delightful surprise.

All the staff were superb! Carmen and her family were extremely responsive to our needs and we felt taken care of. Pool and garden staff were there regularly and kept the place looking good.

Disability review: We also chose this place as I use a walker and can be considered mobility-impaired. Mexico is not great for the disabled;you really have to work around things but it is possible and it is worth it. The unit is accessible - get the elevator to your front door. The large bedroom has one step up to the washroom, the other is level. Outside patio is one step down to the pool. I used the hot tub (pictured) as a railing and steps down into the pool. There are about a dozen steps down to the beach (no railing). A wheelchair could manage the unit and pool areas but not the beach. Those with canes or even walkers could manage this.

Outside the condo will be more difficult. The restaurant across the street is excellent but getting in is hard for disabled. There is a ramp (steep) with a strong railing on one side so if you can pull yourself up, you're OK. Forget walkers or wheelchairs and get takeout. The town is close but streets are very rocky and the one leading to the village is very steep and not suitable for disabled. You'll need one member of your group to have a car to access it.

Our only issue was the noisy group that played loud music (they did ask but ...) and took over a large number of chairs (about double of what they needed). We were leaving and did not address it and I regret that because that left others with the problem. I won't do that again. We value places where you can hear nature and that is so hard to find.

We would love to return, hopefully longer next time! Gorgeous place, well run and maintained and excellent on-line communications beforehand. Thanks to Carmen and Prisca for everything!

An outstanding beach vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this El Faro Real condo! A lovely patio of our own (where we played cards many nights til 10 p.m.!) adjoins the facility's lovely landscaped pool patio with palapa/BBQ/table, chairs, lounge chairs..and most especially the gorgeous infinity pool looking out to the ocean on Banderas Bay! A view to die for!

The condo itself was very spacious, comfortable beds, large bathrooms, great showers! The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, large refrigerator and all the appliances you would need for a good breakfast and a good margarita!

We liked being on the "ground floor"..always felt safe and could be very private by just closing the curtains. Since we spent most of our waking hours outside, it was very easy to walk in..make a snack, get a drink, go to the restroom, etc.

Yes, we would return!

Beautiful ground floor condo on the beach with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 9day vacation at El Faro Real. Condo is as described. We spent most of our time on the patio reading, sun bathing and playing cards. Whales are busy this time of year and we were able to spot many from the patio! Easy and short walk to restaurants and groceries. Our 'go to' restaurant was right across the street 'Casa de Pintor'. Try the garlic shrimp. We also ate at Sufi, Si Senor and a couple other beach restaurants. All very good. Master bed/bath is spacious, guest bed has bathroom attached which is also accessible from main room. Hot tub does not heat very much so if that's important to you be aware. Certainly would not be a deal breaker for me. I would go back in a heart beat.

I cant recommend this place/unit enough. Although I hate to see it get busy. The owners are easy to work with, the place is furnished way better than others I have seen, and the kitchen layout is the best. If you want to have coffee steps from the ocean without going anywhere this is the place. This is on the bottom floor of a 12 unit condo. The pool is steps away from the front porch. The beach is just a few steps past that...

There are amazing restaurants just an 8 minute stroll down the beach.

The beach... miles of endless sand for walking. There is also a surf break most days right in front.

I cant wait to get back!

Fantastic location in a fantastic town

  • 5 of 5

The condo is fantastic - spacious, tastefully decorated, and with an absolutely perfect location. We traveled around the area a bit (had dinner at one of the nearby resort-restaurants, visited Sayulita, Bucerias, and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle) and always came back preferring Punta de Mita. Fantastic beach. String of super-tasty restaurants. Numerous little markets for groceries (in case you don't feel like going all the way out to the Mega). And the complex's pool is perfect for when you don't feel like going all the way down to the beach (in other words, in case you only want to walk 10 feet instead of 20).

Before we got there, we did wonder what it would be like to have a shared pool right outside our windows. We did not find it a problem in any way whatsoever. Granted, it was slow season, so there was only one or two other groups using it (I think up to 6 have access)... but it's so bright outside, you can't see into the darker interior of the condo. Or, there are semi-transparent curtains you can draw... or full-on non-transparent curtains. Whatever your comfort level, you'll be able to be comfortable. Meanwhile, being able to walk out your sliding door and into a pool that overlooks a great beach is pretty priceless.

Finally... the on-site management is handled by the excellent Carmen. She was very relaxed and helpful. She provides a grocery-pick-up service, so we came to the condo with stuff already in the fridge. She put us in contact with a reliable taxi driver to get us to the condo and back to the airport. She coordinates cleaning crews. It's just good to have someone like that available for questions.

All in all... really tough to beat!

Awesome place in an awesome area

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what I hoped for. This was the perfect place to bring my family down to Mexico...wife and two kids 8 & 5. I intend to be back and with more families to enjoy the fun. Carmen the manager was so nice and dedicated she waited over 2 hours for us on our arrival day while we were at the Mega trying to get groceries for the week. The condo is very nice and totally up to date with appliances and had everything you needed to prepare food, or drinks :) We arrived at the beginning of the wet season and had a few days of very humid weather, but the condo is equipped with four different AC units, but only two were needed to keep the place cool. The kids loved he pool which is right outside your patio door. We were back and forth from the ocean to the pool all day which wore out the kids...and my wife and I. The surf is pretty mellow out front of the condo unless a swell fills in, but a 25 min walk south to La Lancha and I found solid overhead surf for me. Again, I can't say enough about how great this place is and I will definitely be back with the family. Thank you again Prisca and Carmen for providing such a great place for me and my family to make some great memories.
