Esta propiedad está en una ubicación privilegiada - justo al lado de la calle 5 con acceso rápido a las tiendas y otras actividades. ¡El acceso a la playa y la vista eran increíbles!

A place to spend a very quiet vacation
Amna M. Nov 2021
Abbiamo passato dei giorni meravigliosi a Playa del Carmen a EL Faro.
È per tutti. Raccomando anche di cercare un appartamento con vista sulla piscina o sul mare.
Jose Francisco D. Nov 2021
Un apartamento con una ubicación excelente. La atención y servicios de EL Faro son increibles.
Gregg R. Nov 2021
We absolutely love the proximity to the ocean, view of the beach from the balcony, and the relaxation of the condominium itself. It was very well kept and private. There is a lot of nightlife in and around this condo so as long as that activity and some of the residual noise doesn’t bother you that it is a perfect place to stay.
Stacie M. Jun 2021
Nice size unit and clean. There was a weird smell for the first couple days but it worked it way out. The cabinet doors are in pretty bad shape from the salty air but everything is in working order. This unit is on the street side of the complex though. I did not realize that when booking, totally my fault. Balcony is small and noisy at night being right over top of Zenzi’s. The pool area need a lot more chairs! I heard they have plenty but are keeping some in storage due to Covid restrictions. If you need anything see Josie at reception! She is the BEST!!!! Going back in March 2022 but trying a different unit. Love the location!!! sargassum destroyed any hopes of being on the beach this time. Also nobody seems to ever mention the stench rolling off that stuff!!!!
Manager response:
Hi Stacie, thanks for your visit. We apologize for any odor in the home, this is not a normal occurrence. We are glad that it aired out. Our guest service agents are available 24 hours a day and if any issues arise we encourage guests to let us know so that we can assist. We'd love to host you again soon.

Location on the beach and view. Close to 5th Avenue and Ferry. Nice gym and pool. Two full bathrooms.
Carlos C. May 2021
Un apartamento y condominio muy bien ubicados en el centro de la ciudad, recomendable para adultos y familias
Judy F. Apr 2021
There could have been a few more small amenities like a couple days worth of coffee, extra toilet paper etc. but overall it was quite nice
When we got tired of walking the streets and shopping it was great to have Netflix!

It is a unique experience, a large and well conditioned apartment. A wonderful pool and the beach a few steps away. We will be back soon.
Janice B. Feb 2021
The location is excellent, it is very close to everything, four blocks from Walt Mart, one block from the pedestrian street, in front and by the beach there is a very nice bar-restaurant where you can eat well and have drinks, accompanied by live shows with very good music.
Maxime G. Feb 2021
Le meilleur endroit pour les personnes qui veulent faire une pause dans le bruit et l'activité sans être loin du centre-ville.
Ingo L. Dec 2020
I can only very much recommend this apartment. It is really spacious, good quality and makes it easy to live in. Super comfortable and big bed plus great kitchen facilities come along. And, last but not least Alberto, the operations manager and Carlos, the concierge are always very helpful and supportive.

I am considering to go back to that apartment the coming days.

10 out of 10 points

Oceanfront Corner Condo with lovely view in a clean quite building, great kitchen and dining area, big screen smart tvs, fast wifi, comfortable bed, great shower with plenty of hot water! The only noise is from the street and fun beach club nearby, Playa is vibrant and alive and we expect the sounds of Mexico.
Our host Alberto, Pool staff, Security and Front Desk staff are all super helpful and professional. We WILL be back!
DANIEL H. Feb 2020
Location, view, nice place
Vivian N. Dec 2019
?I really enjoyed my stay at Vacasa's place. The view is nice, the kitchen is fully equipped, the bed and pillows are super comfortable. Alberto was a super host, very attentive, he replied to all my questions and was always ready to help. I would definitely come back!?

Como y cerca de todo
Adam P. Nov 2019
The location was excellent, literally on the beach and one block from 5th avenue. Having the sunloungers on the beach and by the pool reserved for guests only was also greatly appreciated. The condo was well furnished, comfortable bedroom and lots of space as well as a full kitchen. Beach views from the balcony. Alberto, the local manager, was really friendly and gave lots of his time and tips to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. Highly recommend this place!
edwin h. Sep 2019

Brad S. Jan 2019
Location was great! Everything was close by and convenient. Because of this, check your room location to make sure you are okay with the nightly noise level. The apartment was clean and spacious. Would come back again.
Wiktoria P. Jan 2019
Located centrally downtown and wonderful view of both the ocean and the street. LOVED the set-up of the home. Big spaciosu living room with tons of natural light from the big windows. Very beautiful comfortable bed and great shower/bathtub situation with a unique glass in the shower that overlooks the bedroom. The kitchen was big and had everything you need to cook or just chop some fresh fruit. Just a bit off the main road so it was nice and quiet at night to sleep. The property felt extremely safe. It is in a resort so there are a lot of amenities like a gorgeous huge infinity pool right on the water, laundry, and very friendly and helpful front desk staff as well as security.
William . Nov 2015
Location is unbeatable. Pool, beach, staff, grounds, all outstanding. Can not stress enough the location. I went north and south from cancun to Talum. I would not stay anywhere else because the location was great for us. Staff was very helpful. Security worked hard to keep things comfortable. Senzi next door was very close, convenient, and has great food. Try the fish tacos. They rock. Having Wal Mart a few blocks away, we stocked our room with food, beer/wine, alcohol, etc. Saved plenty by eating and drinking in the room, or taking our cooler down by the pool/beach. On site bar/restaurant would be nice. Plumbing not great, but that is everywhere you go down here.
