Overview

Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

El Faro means Lighthouse and this lighthouse has been a landmark in Playa del Carmen for many years and is still a working lighthouse. Residences El Faro Condominiums has incorporated the lighthouse on the property.

Our BEACH FRONT condo is only 35 steps to the beach and 170 steps to the FAMOUS 5th AVENUE which is full of exciting restaurants and shops.

The beach you see from our condo offers swimming, wind-surfing, parasailing, scuba diving, jet-skiing, and just a relaxing day on the beach.

Our Condo has a fully equipped modern kitchen including a George Foreman multi purpose grill, or we have a Weber Gas grill on the balcony.

There is an onsite restaurant named Wickys that will provide room service, fine dining indoors, or treats on the beach.

We have tried to incorporate the wonderful Mayan Culture in our wall painting in the living area in hopes you feel the real sense of Mexico.

There are many activities close by including Jungle tours with zip-lines, water/activity parks, Mayan ruins, cenote diving and much more. Come join us for a great vacation.

great condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Evan's condo for 10 days and absolutely loved it. There was great decor and it was very clean. The condo was well equipped, Terry has thought of everything you would need. The balcony and the view was spectacular. Terry was great to work with we are already talking about going back next year.

Best in Playa

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to beat this place for it's perfect location, views of the ocean, fabulous beach and pool as well as friendly, helpful staff. It's an easy walk to numerous restaurants and clubs along with grocery stores, banks, and the central shopping district. The Condo is well equipped with almost anything you could ask for and has a spacious outdoor patio perfectly oriented for views of the gorgeous sunrises.

We very much appreciated Terry's help and attention to detail in planning our first trip to Playa Del Carmen.

Perfect from Beginning until Return!!

  • 5 of 5

Terry is very helpful in all respects of planning the perfect vacation at her condo. The condo is everything and more than the photos depict, Perfect location on the beach with beautiful Caribbean sea views. Large balcony including a grill for outdoor cooking, two large bedrooms with king beds, two beautiful bathrooms and full working kitchen. It is close to everything you would need, Groceries, restaurants, ferry, 5th Avenue. Staff is terrific, friendly and helpful, grounds are immaculate and always felt safe. Loved the extras, beach chairs, cooler for the beach, kids sand toys, boogie board. We have stayed in different places in Riviera Maya and PDC over the past years and this was the BEST!! Perfect for families and couples. We all were sad to leave!!!

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Terry's condo. It was everything we wanted and more for our trip to Playa. The condo is equipped with everything, from what you need in the kitchen, to beach chairs and even a cooler for the pool or beach. The EL FARO complex was clean and everyone working there was so nice and helpful if we needed anything. The condo was exactly what we wanted for 2 couples. It is within walking distance to everything from great restaurants, shops, bars, and even the walmart. We like going to the little local joints for meals and we found some that was a walk, but only a few blocks. It was awesome to finds these local places and enjoy some great food. We felt safe walking to all of them even off the tourist path. If your traveling to Playa, go with the condo, you will not be disappointed. Now that we're back home, we want to go back. Thanks Terry!!!

Awesome place for families and best location in Playa!

  • 5 of 5

This location and condo are exactly as described! The unit is in pristine condition. The location is amazing and right on the beach. It was everything we hoped for when we booked it. Terry, the owner, was terrific and helped us with our transportation arrangements. The pool and beach are super close to the unit. It's within walking distance of everything in Playa. You really can't go wrong with this condo. The reviews are legitimate and accurate. Have fun!

Fabulous Vacation over Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 teenage boys) had a wonderful stay at El Faro. Location was perfect being so central to activities such as X-Caret, Xel Ha, Coba and Chichen Itza (with the new highway, just opened Thanksgiving week). El Faro is very close to the Cozumel ferry; we sprinted to catch the noon one during our stay. 5th street was fun to visit, but we were glad that we were not on it. Many restaurants near by so it was easy to eat out, which we did about half the time and grilled at the condo the other half. Condo is beautiful and had all amenities needed, everything in working order. Maid service twice during the week was a plus. We had a car and parking below the building was always guarded. Terry was very responsive to all of my many questions via email before and during the stay. Wi Fi was excellent. El Faro property always looked clean and my kids loved the pool. I did laundry which was conveniently located on the 1st floor. Front desk and property management were available and very helpful. This unit is great for view and away from noise. It was a fabulous place to spend Thanksgiving week and would definitely recommend.
