Great stay at El Faro. Booking through sun sea and rentals was very easy. Nicholas spoke very good English and answered all of my questions promptly. The apartment/condo itself was too narrow for our liking but the amenities themselves were fine. Kind bed in one room. Twins? I think in the other. Master bedroom opens onto the balcony and you can see/hear the ocean which is amazing. So you get great ocean breeze also. The El Faro hotel itself is fabulous. It's small so we only had 3 concierges the entire time we were there who knew us by name pretty much. Laundry facilities (on site) were great. Only $3 US to clean and $3 to dry all of our laundry. The pool at El Faro was great - very clean. The beach had lots of seaweed so we never swam there but it's cleaner just near by (we didn't mind as the pool was ample fun). The location and views from this condo are second to none. Wifi is OK - works best from the main living area but there's a starbucks 30 seconds away and free wifi for Mastercard customers along 5th ave. I keep mentioning location because if this is your 1st time in PDC, you cannot beat this location. It's on the beach so you are half way to heaven and then you have 5th on the next block with everything you'd need to eat/drink/snack nearby. Walmart is about a 7-10 min walk. Our host was Paul who was fabulous - very friendly bloke from Alberta (Canada) so was great to meet someone fluent in English who could give us some local tips. I'd highly recommend this condo for families or parties of no more than 4. Also, the jetty/ferry to Cozumel is about a 5 min walk away (only $13 each way) so highly recommend a day trip. We really had a great time. Last thing I will add is that electricity is on top of the advertised price but only paid $29 for 4.5 day stay for 4 people so that was very reasonable. The condo also has good shades (curtains) to keep the condo cool during the day. Condo also came with a water cooler ($3 for refil) which was a very nice touch. Bus station is also 10 mins away for cheap transport but in summer you'll sweat your butt off so SunSea also arranged our private transport for us. (PS - they'll even do a grocery shop for u for $15 fee).

“Luxury at it's Best”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just spent a few nights relaxing on the beach in Beautiful Playa del Carmen. This has got to be one of the best and most luxurious condos I've been in at El Faro. Sun and Sea provided all the amenities and I even got a few groceries bought for me to make my trip complete. Stress Free and Fabulous. Service and Location is beyond reproach.
Thank you.
