About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our Unit is SURF 103. This unit was just recently finished in Nov. 2011and boasts all new furniture and amenities throughout. El Faro Condominiums are by far the best location in Playa del Carmen!

El Faro boasts a huge modern swimming pool and is located on one of the largest sandy beaches in Playa! It also provides a therapy pool, onsite bar, a fine dining restaurant (Wicky's) and a beach club. Wicky's provides poolside and beach wait service.Hands down this is the best beach scene in Playa.

El Faro Located is one block off Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue) at Calle 10 and the beach, you are smack dab in the middle of our charming village. 5th Ave is host to unlimited shopping, restaurant, and night life activity.

Our Unit SURF 103 is located on the first floor just steps from the huge pool and the beautiful ocean. It has 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Sleeps 5 comfortably. Master Bdrm has a King size Bed- Second Bedroom has a Queen. There is also a sofa sleeper in the living room. It has a fully equipped modern kitchen and boasts marble floors throughout!

Another truly beneficial feature of Surf 103 is the fact that access is within a couple steps of pool, beach and restaurant, which allows easy entrance back into the condo without having to cut back through the hotel. This has proven extremely convenient for us because we have children.

Other amenities include On-Site Security 24/7, daily maid service at no charge, air conditioning, free wi-fi internet, flat screen TV's throughout all bedrooms and living room, front desk service and on site management to take care of your every need.

You will have extremely easy access to the large swimming pool, restaurant and the gorgeous beach. The beach you see from our condo patio offers swimming, wind-surfing, parasailing, scuba diving, jet-skiing, or just a relaxing day on the beach. Best of all the activity stand and life guard stand, sit perfectly positioned right on El Faro beach.

There are many activities close by including Jungle tours with zip-lines, stunning Xel Ha and Xcaret eco parks /activity parks, Mayan ruins (Chichen-Itza, Tulum and Koba), cenote diving, world class golf ( Mayakoba PGA golf course) and much more. Come join us for a great vacation.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose

Play Del Carmen boasts both a environment for relaxation as well as a very active night life. You can either sit and pamper yourself or go one block away and be in central hub of activity including, dining, shopping, and nightlife.

Loved this condo and the El Faro property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a stay at this wonderful condo. Along with us were another couple and one of our guy friends whose wife could not make it. This condo worked out perfectly for us. There are two bedrooms (1 with a king bed and 1 with a queen) and each have their own full bath. The bonus for our friend who slept on the sofa sleeper was the 1/2 bath that is also in the condo. He shared our shower yet was able to have his own bathroom to put his toiletries etc. He said it was the most comfortable sofa sleeper he had ever slept on :)

There was plenty of closet space in the bedrooms as well as plenty of storage space in the bathrooms. The water pressure in the showers were great which is also a bonus.

Each room including the living room had a nice flat screen tv/dvd/ and sattelite cable system. The A/C worked great and the ceiling fans as well.The place was nicely furnished and had every piece of furniture one would need for a nice vacation.

Although we did not cook any meals nor use but a few dishes, the kitchen looked adequately stocked to do so. The appliances and countertops were very nice. Bags of ice were available right across the street from the hotel. This came in very handy for our cocktails :)

The El Faro property was very nice. It is on a nice area of the beach (down a few doors the beach is a little rocky) so we felt very lucky. The pool is very nice as well and we found it very relaxing. There were always ample chairs available beach and pool side. Pool towels are given out at the front desk. They are strict on one per person and it is $30 if you lose it (basically the same rules as any other resort). If you are one that like two towels to cover your lounge chair than make sure to bring one of your own. Food and beverage service is available on the beach and/or by the pool.

The restaurant on site was a great place for lunch. We did not eat breakfast or dinner there so I cannot comment on that. The prices were very reasonable, the food was great, and the staff were super friendly. Jose, the day manager was great. Very personable from the day we arrived until the day we left.

The location of the resort is absolutely unbeatable. A great condo/resort 1 block from 5th avenue. You cannot ask for a better location.

The resort staff were very accomodating and friendly during our stay. The condo owner was super to work with!!! I highly recommend this condo and property and hope we are able to stay there again sometime soon!!!
