About Lorelei

We are owners of a manufacturers representative company for HVAC products in Saskatchewan Canada. We enjoy holidaying and spending time with family and friends especially in Playa which seems like a second home to us and our three children.

Lorelei purchased this condo in 2013

Why Lorelei chose Gonzalo Guerrero

After our first visit to the Mayan Riviera in 2000 we fell in love with the area and kept returning we then decided to purchase our first property at Paseo del Sol in 2004. We enjoy the many great aspects of Playa from the diverse cultures, ease of walking to all restaurants and shops. We find we can enjoy something different every visit and still go back to do our favorite things. The ease of getting to the Mayan Riviera is just another bonus for us and our friends.

What makes this condo unique

El Faro is one of a kind in Playa as it is 1/2 a block from the entertainment district and one block from the famous 5th ave the unique parts of this as you step inside the complex you feel like you stepped into seclusion as the sounds of the action around the complex just seem to disappear. With the onsite 24 hour security your whole family feels completely comfortable day and night. The huge infinity pool with integrated kids pool and the multiple lounging areas around the pool offers a uncrowded feel.

Great location and high end condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults just returned from a fun vacation at the El Faro. We stayed 7 nights and everything was as anticipated as the condo's owner described the condo accurately. The staff was accommodating and the security was excellent. We had a couple of minor issues that were handled promptly by the staff. The location on the beach and proximity to 5th Ave. couldn't be far the best. If you want a relaxing vacation lying on the beach or taking in Playa's night life you will definitely enjoy El Faro! If we travel to Playa del Carmen again we won't have to look where to stay because we would come back to El Faro,
