Great Condo smack on the beach...

  • 5 of 5

Everything here was hassle free, just the way you want it on your vacation. Check in took under 10 mins, and after parking our car in their garage park, we were in our beach front Condo having a drink on the huge L-Shaped Verandah overlooking the white sandy beach and blue Caribbean Sea. The Condo was immaculate and had everything you could want including Wifi. This Condo is smack on the beach and it was so breezy, we barely use the AC's as we preferred opening the many sliding glass doors and enjoying the cool breeze. The property EL FARO is just block away from 5th Avenue. Starbucks is right on the corner and nearby are all the fine shops and restaurants. Even though it rained for most of the 3 days we spent there, we did not mind hanging out in our Condo. Check out was also a breeze. We will be back. Highly recommend.

Fantastic Condo in the Best Building in Playa Del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

If you want to visit Playa Del Carmen, I don't know how you could do any better than this. It was a wonderful experience from the time we arrived to the time we left. This condo is located just steps away from 5th Avenue. You'll never run out of new restaurants to try or shops to explore. The local management company (Caribbean Beach Properties) employs some very friendly people. They connected with us multiple times and responded to the few issues that we had almost instantly. They even had the unit ready before 1:00 (official check in time is 3:00) despite the fact that another family had just checked out that morning. We also loved the free drinking water that they supplied. The condo was in beautiful condition and well furnished. It has a true wrap-around patio and beautiful views from two different angles. There's only a few spots in the entire unit where you can't see the ocean. Comfortable beds and good air-conditioning meant that we slept quite well during our stay. I only have a few complaints about this unit. The secondary bathroom often had a sewer gas smell, the master bathroom has no door (no privacy if someone else is in the bedroom), and the condo's patio is accessible from the public hallway (so you have no security if you leave a door open for fresh air at night). Also beware that staircases around the property lack proper handrails and the pool can be quite difficult for those with disabilities to enter and exit. Other than these few things, our stay was perfect. We'd do it again in a heartbeat.
