Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


Enjoy a luxurious stay at the beautiful El Faro Condo penthouse Reef 403, situated in the heart of Playa del Carmen at Calle 10 and the beach. Spacious with 9 foot ceilings throughout, with natural lighting & amazing views of the Caribbean!

Our luxurious penthouse condo has two bedrooms and two baths and a breathtaking view of the Caribbean from the main floor balcony and from our amazing and private rooftop terrace.

This fabulous rooftop comes complete with a wet bar, bar stools, mini-fridge, sink, sun loungers, BBQ grill, hot tub & Jacuzzi, sink, mini-fridge, dining area for 4, as well as a rooftop shower & outdoor bathroom. Your own private tropical paradise!

The 2 luxurious bedrooms feature one master bedroom with king bed, en-suite bath with rain shower, 2nd adjustable shower head, and a jetted hot tub. The guest bedroom features one queen bed, with en-suite full bath. A sleeper sofa is available to sleep 2 extra guests.

Fully-equipped stainless steel kitchen, and fantastic Sony stereo in the living room completes the entertainment features of this gorgeous condo. Enjoy the huge amazing pool and the incomparable natural beauty of the Caribbean that awaits you.

El Faro is ideally located in the town of Playa del Carmen on the shores of our beautiful blue sea, yet just 1.5 blocks off 'Quinta Avenida.' 5th Avenue is an amazing paved pedestrian only walkway that runs parallel to the beach and houses a colorful array of shops, restaurants, bars, spas and provides excellent people watching all hours of the day and night.

This beautiful vacation home has everything you want - complete kitchen, maid service, laundry service, gorgeous furnishings, beautiful views, a perfect place to stay and every amenity you expect in paradise.

65 Condos in an exclusive complex in the middle of Playa's main beach make El Faro the very best place to be. Walk to everything. All water sports available on our sandy beach. On site massage therapy is also available.

Playa del Carmen and El Faro are easy to get to: fly into Cancun and either take a 40-minute cab to Calle 10th & and the beach or a luxury bus to the Playa terminal just two blocks from your vacation home. (Alternately, you can fly into Cozumel and take the ferry across the Caribbean and land just a few blocks from your vacation home.)

We are happy to arrange for your airport transportation via private van delivering you right to your condo door!

just returned from a week in Playa del Carmen that was perfect. Friends stayed at El Faro last year so I knew I wanted to be at this location, and Reef 403 was amazing. Everything is exactly as you see in the photos and Tonya and her staff were great. They checked in with us several times to see if we needed anything and the one request we did have was taken care of immediately. I travel to Playa with a large group annually and will definitely be staying here again!!!

I stay in this Reef 403 2 to 3 times a year. My favorite spot

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning on going to Playa El Faro is the spot. The best access to 5th avenue and the beach. The staff is super helpful. If you are staying at El Faro this unit is the best we have stayed at. I rent several different units each year for friends and family. This unit is the one I stay at. Everything always works. The view is the best and you have your own private rooftop perch. The owner Mike is always so helpful. Internet and Vonage phone for free. The room rates are very completive with like quality projects. I can't say enough, on a scale of 1 to 10 its an 11.

We enjoyed our vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at condo Reef 403 in October 2013. It was not our first time in Playa but the first time we stayed at El Faro. We enjoyed our vacation tremendously. The location is absolutely perfect: close to shopping, restaurants, beach – everything. Our favorite restaurant is Zenzi next door: the food, drinks are unbeatable.

The condo itself is very quiet and nice too: there are basic appliances, plates, pots and pans, glasses, etc. We particularly enjoyed free phone calls to the US and in-room internet. When we got there first there were a few things missing or not working. We contacted the manager in the US (Tonya) and we got what we needed within a couple of hours even though it was 6 pm. Everything else was fixed the next day. We were told that the reason some things were missing or not working was due to them switching management companies, and I have to say that the new management company is great. It is located right across the street and things get fixed within only few hours. Their representative (Angie) stopped by every day to make sure that we did not need anything. We needed filters changed in the air-conditioner in the second room, Angie asked us what time would be most convenient and by the time we were back from the beach it was done.

One thing that we missed was the instructions on how to use TV, AC, etc. We pressed a button on the TV remote control and lost TV programing until Angie stopped by. She also had to show us how to use the AC so it would not blow straight at us when we are asleep. And the hot tub did not work the whole time we were there but we got credit for that which was fair.

It was our favorite vacation in Playa del Carmen so far.
