El Faro is a fabulous place to stay, surf 103 is a good condo with a great location. Overall it was really good it just needs a little tlc, kitchen sink tap was broken( they did fix it for us as soon as we said something) there was no cleaning service at all, which would have been nice just once or twice on a 10 day stay. But it hard to be too upset when you’re ten steps from the pool, which is why they don’t have to worry about renting it out. Love el Faro and will go back, I would just do a bit more reviews reading before I booked😊

The staff at the desk is friendly and the security is great. The location is prime. The condo has none of the comforts of home. TV did not work for cable. The stove didn't work. Alberto did try to remedy but never could and all of our groceries were wasted and had to order take out or eat out every meal. 6 persons, 5 forks. No spatula if you were to attempt cooking like I did every time they said the stove would work. No pillows provided for persons 5 and 6 sleeping on the couch. 6 towels for 6 people. Nothing extra. The one trash bag provided in the kitchen garbage is the size you would put in a bathroom and none extra. I complained and Alberto did provide some. It's basically a glorified hotel room with none of the comforts of home. I was very disappointed, especially when chatting with others at the complex that were provided pool floats, coolers, etc. When you rent a home you want it comfortable and the cooking is the biggest reason why you get a home vs hotel. I was not provided a partial refund after asking 2 times. Stay at El Faro, but with a different property management company.
Manager response:
Hi, Renee! We are sorry to read you were unhappy with your visits. The property manager has taken your concerns and is addressing the ones within his power to handle. We hope to have another opportunity to impress you in the future.

Pool access was easy and ocean views made this stay relaxing and memorable. The property manager was polite and responsive. Restaurants and shops were steps away making this a natural fit for us. I'd return to this same spot and would not hesitate to reach out to this company for future stays.

- La situation geographique est top, l'appartement est vraiment très spacieux ... super séjour. Je recommande vivement ce logement!! - J'ai trouvé dommage de devoir payé avant la fin du sejour et dommage aussi de devoir payer une caution en espece...ce qui oblige à sortir 300 dollars en especes...
