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.

Wonderful El Faro

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at El Faro. It was beautiful, in a perfect location, perfect view, beautiful beach. We absolutely loved it and would definitely return. It was very well stocked, especially the kitchen, and we had everything we needed. We loved being so close to everything, yet far enough away that it did not feel like we were in the middle of all the commotion on 5th street. You did not need a taxi to get anywhere. All of your recommendations were very helpful and we loved the driver you arranged for us, Jonathan. We felt very comfortable w him and it was very convenient that he includes a 40 minute grocery shopping trip for free in the cost. He even had a car seat so we did not have to bring one. My only recommendation would be a softer bed in the main bedroom.

El Faro is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
It was my first time in Playa Del Carmen and El Faro was the perfect place to stay. It's on the beach and so close to everything that's happening. You don't need a taxi unless you decide to go on tours/excursions. The staff is super friendly and the units are nicely decorated and very up to date. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay in Playa

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week (June 22- June 28, 2014) at this condo and had a great time. This is a beautiful place to stay and it's in the perfect location for exploring the beach, 5th avenue and the many attractions around the area. It is obvious Terry and her husband have gone to great lengths to make their guests comfortable both in and out of the condo. They provide pool toys, movies, games, books and several amenities that would make anyone's stay relaxing and enjoyable. It was fun to plan our day over morning coffee on the big balcony or return to the cool condo after a day out. The cultural decor certainly enhances the experience as well.

We appreciated the giant binder of menus and brochures for restaurants and attractions around the area as well as the email with personal recommendations. We also appreciated all the instructions regarding local customs. Terry was always quick to reply or help out and also arranged transportation from and back to the airport. Management was also eager to assist on the few occasions we sought their help. All in all, it was a great place to stay and if we return to the area we will definitely be in touch.

This El Faro Condo was exactly what we wanted and needed for a fun and relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Terry went beyond the call of duty preparing my family for our vacation. Not only did the driver, Jonathan, meet all expectations with a carseat for my grandson, a beer stop enroute to Playa and a short stop at WalMart before we checked in! The Condo met all our expectations and more so. Angie had a portacrib in the bedroom, the air conditioner was on, wine and beer in the refrigerator, a pool under our balcony and beach within steps! All the restaurants were within walking distance and truly superb, our favorite was "La Mission" with steak and lobster, the price was unbelievable! We walked a block to the infamous 5th Avenue, and what fun we had shopping, and stopping in the various bars to watch the "Soccer Games!" The overall feeling we had while staying at the El Faro Condo was safety, service, cleanliness, convenience and total relaxation!! We sat on the balcony and stayed in the beautiful pool the majority of the time! I would highly recommend Terry and Steve's condo to couples, families,& friends, we will definitely return and bring others with us!
