My family really enjoyed the apartment, number of bathrooms, community pool and proximity to the beach. Would definitely recommend!

Ficamos no apartamento 204 e gostamos muito. A cozinha é muito bem equipada e a piscina infinita muito boa. A Internet era muito rápida.

We loved everything from the welcoming staff, to the way we felt so safe, the convenience of the location to restaurants and the beach, the cleanliness, absolutely everything about this home was perfect. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back!
Krista S. Mar 2022
I love the location. I have been here several times. It has the BEST pool on the beach and a block from 5th. I feel very safe in this location and the security staff really looks out for you.

Quiet and relaxing time. Close to all attractions.
Jill H. Aug 2021
We had a great time here. It was very clean and the checkin process was very easy. The location is close to everything. The one thing I would suggest is to have an extra supply of water in the condo as the one in the unit ran out. Other than that everything was great!
Ivan R. Jul 2021
Location is in the middle of playa del carmen. Plenty of food and entertainment choices.
Apartment was good, clean and comfortable. Pool was clean. The beach area was covered in Algae but not the properties fault, all the rivera maya is having algae issues.
Manager response:
Thank you for your generous review, Ivan. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of our home! We are sorry that you experienced issues with the algae on the beach. Regrettably, the condition of the beach is not within the control of our local staff. We are very appreciative of your feedback and we will be sure to share your private comments with the local manager to review. We hope to have the chance to host you again soon!

El Faro is in the downtown area, very close to the sea and local stores.
Diving, restaurants, dive shops and more are within walking distance. Highly recommended
Trevor L. Mar 2021
Our visit to this beautiful place was wonderful, since we booked immediately contacted me (Carlos) to see if we required something special, to make our stay more enjoyable, that gave me great satisfaction.

When we arrived at the place we were attended and put our respective brasaletes a girl named Kary, super friendly with us, she recommended us places to have breakfast and always very helpful.
Ingo L. Jan 2021
As the stay before it was a great vacation time in the apartment again. Many thanks for making it such a great time and your great support in the booking process.

My family stayed at El Faro Surf #204 for 8 nights in December of 2020. We were very happy with the condo. The highlights were the excellent location right on the beach and adjacent to 5ta Avenida with all its shops, restaurants, bars, and generally good atmosphere. Everyday, we had the option of walk to the pool, the beach, or venture into town. The staff in the building were always courteous and friendly. Additionally, Alberto, the Vacasa location manager was extremely helpful in a couple issues we encountered. On one occasion, the unit had partial power. I contact Alberto and within a couple hours, his maintenance person had fixed the problem. Highly recommend this unit for your trip to Playa del Carmen.

Beautiful pool, great location. Beds are comfortable. Alberto the manager was more than happy to help. We highly recommend this place!
Nancy K. Nov 2019
Very clean, loved the view from this unit. Bed very comfy (we rented a 2 bedroom but only needed the master). Alberto was very helpful and attentive & made sure to make contact during our stay. This is a great condo but the only reason we didn't give 5 stars is a few deficiencies - the kitchen could use some more basic amenities such as salt, pepper, saran wrap, dish cloths and proper t-towels, only 2 frying pans and the 1 had seen better days. However, if you're not planning to do much cooking then not a big deal. Instructions on how to work the Tv's would have been helpful. This is a great unit and we would stay again!
Cynthia S. Sep 2019
This was a great apartment, large space, the beds were comfortable, bathrooms were large, water pressure was very good. We'll be back next time we're in Playa!
Terri R. Sep 2019
Great views from the condo and convenient location to the beach and 5th Ave. The condo was very clean. The property manager Alberto is fantastic! He was so helpful even when my rental car would not start, he was on the phone with Enterprise to get it resolved. I highly recommend this #204 condo!!
Ornella S. Sep 2019
I'll definitely stay there again if I'm back to Playa del Carmen. The condo has an incredible pool on the beach ! That made our trip really appreciable. It is also very well located if you want to enjoy the touristic streets with nice shops, restaurants, bars and night clubs. We were one block from there, but the appartement was well isolated, so it was not loudy. The only issue is the noisy A/C and fans in the bedrooms. You're as well 10 min walk from Cozumel ferries. Playa del Carmen is just between Tulum and Cancun, which is quite convenient if you rent a car and would like to visit the Riviera Maya. I recommend it.
Sherry L. Jul 2019
The condo itself is amazing. Everything needed is there. The location is the best in Playa. The pool is beautiful and it has direct access to the beach. It was great for the kids to go back and forth. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Great location and beautiful condo!
