  • Great Stay at El Faro!

    "We just completed a week stay at El Faro Surf 101. To begin, we have been coming to Playa Del Carmen for a number of years, but this was our first time at El Faro. The best yet! Our condo was everything we could have expected and the photos actually depicted what we received. Condo was in perfect condition, well equipped and comfortable furniture. The first floor walkout unit was perfect; steps to the beach and pool. The patio was a great place to sit and just enjoy the weather, a cup of coffee in the morning and a cocktail in the evening. The owner was extremely easy to work with and responds to inquiries immediately. The staff at El Faro was amazing. Although we had no issues with the unit, they stopped by to check periodically and insure we had everything we needed. Jessica, the front desk receptionist was especially helpful, with directions, locating a misplaced item we inadvertently left poolside and just cheerfully greeting us each morning with "wow" service. The complex has 24 hour security although we never saw or experienced any situations requiring it. The last morning, they even stopped by our unit as I was sitting on the patio to say goodbye and wish us safe travels. The grounds and pool are extremely well maintained. As far as Playa Del Carmen is concerned, it is our favorite place to go in Mexico to get away from our cold Minnesota weather. The people are great, the restaurants excellent and 5th Avenue, the Main Street, is always exciting and has something to offer everyone. If you are considering this unit, you can be assured it is as good or better than the photos depict and if it is your first trip to Playa Del Carmen you will return."

  • Great Locaton

    "El Faro and this unit are in excellent locations in Playa. We have been to playa several times and my wife has stayed at El Faro on a girls trip a few years ago. The unit was well appointed and comfortable. The seating area furniture is starting to look a bit worn and may need replacing soon. We also reported a problem with the lock on the patio sliding glass door as it would lock inadvertently if you simply closed the door behind you when going to the patio. We actually were locked out for awhile, but were able to get help from the Managment company who "rescued" us in a relatively short time. The management representative indicated they needed to replace the lock so I assume that will happen. Otherwise, we enjoyed the stay and the unit."

  • Great Vacation

    "Great vacation! Loved the condo. We vacationed with our 2 young girls and it was a great experience. The location of El Faro is so convenient to Quinta Ave. If you enjoy walking and sightseeing this is a good place. My only recommendation is read the contract for condo cleaning. I didn't. Cleaning was every other day and with sand and 2 young girls I would of preferred daily cleaning."
