About the property

Oceanside One bedroom, two bathroom sleeps four, great for young family!

Special Offer: 15% discount for booking six months in advance. Please inquire!

Boasting one of the very best locations in Playa del Carmen, you need look no further than “El Faro Moderno” at El Faro Residences. Extremely spacious, this one-bedroom, two-bathroom condo (sleeps four) has been tastefully and artfully decorated. This 3rd floor home is comfortable and luxurious; high thread count linens, satellite TV, an ocean view balcony overlooking the gorgeously designed and landscaped pool, and a fully appointed kitchen await you. The deck is the perfect spot to watch the cruise ships early morning while sipping your coffee, or perhaps a late afternoon cocktail while enjoying the last rays of sunshine on the Caribbean.

And while there may be other great condos in Playa del Carmen, you can’t beat this location. On a pristine stretch of beach, one block off the famous 5th Avenue walking street, El Faro Residences holds one of the most sought after addresses in Playa del Carmen. It is not possible to be more in the heart of things, AND in absolute comfort. Everything you could possibly need is within a three-block radius, but of course, there’s much more to see if you venture further!

Whether you’re here solo, with your partner, family or friends, seeking R and R, cultural enrichment, golf or adventure, “El Faro Moderno” is a great place to come home to. Thank you for taking the time to consider our property, and hopefully you’re convinced that this is the place for your next vacation!

*If you’re looking for additional rentals, we have other properties in the same complex. Please inquire!

About Stephane Blouin

We divvy up our time between Canada, a little travel, and El Faro. Our good friend and excellent property manager Stephane takes care of our property for us when we are away.

Stephane Blouin purchased this condo in 2010

Why Stephane Blouin chose Playa del Carmen

After visiting and enjoying the area for many years, the opportunity to purchase a condominium at my favorite location in Playa del Carmen came up. I was increasingly wishing to escape the Canadian winters so the decision was easy. And because I can't be here full time, I've decided to share my little piece of Caribbean paradise with others.

Great Location and view

  • 5 of 5

Amazing condo right on the beach in the center of Playa del Carmen. Close to shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Beautifully decorated and clean with a million dollar view of the pool and ocean. I wanted to stay there again this year but it was booked:( I will book earlier next year.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

The location of this condo could not have been better. The staff at El Faro is helpful and polite. The condo itself was okay. When we first arrived I could not have been more pleased. However, once you start to scratch the surface there were several problems. One of the sinks in master bath only releases scolding hot water. The bathtub faucet did not work at all. The master bathroom shower did not appear to have hot water. There were only (2) pillows for sleeping in the entire unit and only the (1) blanket that was on the bed. They did not wash your towels. You are responsible for laundering your own towels and at $250+ tax that is a bit annoying. The couch was looked very dirty with many stains, so much so we laid down towels as we did not want to sit on the couch directly. For what I paid and I what I got in return, I would not stay here again.
