Great Value, Great Location, Great Property!
Let's start with the good... this property is located in the heart of Playa. One block to 5th Ave (all the shops & dinning) and 2 blocks from 3 awesome night clubs. The condo is very clean, great layout. Bedrooms are separated so lots of privacy. Bathrooms are spacious and super comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and the living room is laid out very well. WiFi works perfect! They provide 5-gal bottled water so no need to stock up with water. The property is also very clean with awesome security. There are guards day/night located at the pool to keep non-residence out of the property. My girlfriend and I felt very safe. Washer & dryer are on the 1st floor, 3 of each. You must get tokens from the front desk (60 pesos per w/d). I found the property very quiet which we liked. This unit was located on the south side of the property (less street noise). The towels are nice, newer and so are the beach towels. AC units in both bedrooms & living room.
The master bed mattress is not that comfortable. In addition, the bottom sheet is not a fitted sheet... just a top sheet used as a bottom sheet. I didn't find the pillows comfortable either... rather hard. Mattresses and pillows are a personal thing... hard to please. They don't provide any spices nor salt & pepper. I'm sure people like me leave them behind but I'm certain the housekeepers take them home. Mega Foods does not salt & pepper shakers... bring your own if it's important. The TV's are smaller... not an issue for us since we didn't turn them on. Buy your own paper towel... the kind they provide is really cheap.
The property provides lounge chairs at the pool but at least 35-40% of the chairs have torn webbing so you feel the support rods on your back as you lay down. Since we were there the 1st week of Dec, the pool wasn't super busy but if we came during the winter/spring, we would have had to lay out on the pool deck instead of the worn out pool chairs.
We rented a car at the airport but returned it early. Cab to the airport was $700 pesos ($35 dollars) and for day trips, we used Budget ($70 us dollars per day, full coverage) & the Budget office is really close. The Gym.com.mx is a great fitness center & is only 3 blocks away. $75 us dollars for 10 visits. Yoga was just a few blocks too. Mega has better food, produce, meats than Walmart. The massage gals located at the pool did a bait & switch... not cool.

Just what the Doctor ordered!
This property was exactly as pictured. Pristine condition. Excellent location. It is a place to relax by the pool and ocean all day or go out and see the sights. With fun 5th Avenue literally a 2 minute walk away, same for the cab stands, you could venture around the corner or go further with ease. The amenities made staying “home” on certain days a great option too. We made pitchers of margaritas and brought them down to the pool. There are grocery stores nearby or you can arrange to have concierge service stock your cupboards before you arrive. I did both. Travelled with my best friend for a girls trip and we felt spoiled! I got a beautiful welcome basket as well. Very nice touch. The property was always clean and there was security patrolling at night. This is a well run condominium and I couldn’t have asked for anything else. Well, maybe to stay longer next time! I was sad when my week was over and I had to go home!
I am so happy to hear about your wonderful stay in R204. Our Cbp staff works hard to keep the condo clean and updated. We are also glad you enjoyed the Welcome Basket and hope you enjoyed the Champagne! El faro is safe and you have everything you need at your finger tips. Please don't hesitate to contact us for another great stay!
My family and I had an awesome time during our stay at El Faro Reef room 204.
The air-conditioning worked great and there was plenty of hot water for our family of 5 to shower one after the other. The staff were very polite and attentive. The only small issue we had was that the sliding glass doors were difficult to open and close. When we brought this up to the manager and were told it was due to settling of the building and they were unable to fix.
Thank you so much for your feedback, we really appreciate it. I'm glad you had a great time with your family!! I have passed your comments to the property manager regarding the door.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for a future reservation as we offer return customer discounts
