• HOW DO WE GET THERE FROM CANCUN AIRPORT? Playa is a 45-minute drive south of the airport. We provide a private van service for $185 round trip, max 8 people, child seats available. Other options: Taxi $70 one-way, Rental car, Hourly Express bus.

• WHERE IS THE PROPERTY? El Faro is located in the heart of Playa’s main tourist district at Calle 10 and the beach, one block from Fifth Avenue. Fifth Avenue is a world famous, 40+-block pedestrian promenade with relaxed cafes and gourmet restaurants, exclusive lounges, and al fresco bars, intriguing boutiques and local purveyors of all types and variety.

• CAN WE SWIM AND SNORKEL IN THE OCEAN IN FRONT OF El FARO? Our beach is rated as one of the top beaches in Mexico because of it’s soft white sand and calm aqua blue water providing safe and enjoyable swimming conditions for people of all ages. The reef off our shore offers excellent snorkeling conditions with a multitude of colorful coral formations and exotic fish and marine life but you will need to hire a snorkeling guide with a boat to get there. We recommend the Hobie Cat guide that operates right from our beach.

• DO WE NEED A CAR? Not necessarily because Playa is pedestrian friendly and we are close to everything. We typically walk or cab around town and rent a car on an as needed basis for regional excursions. There are several car rental agencies within a few blocks.

• HOW OFTEN DO WE GET MAID SERVICE? We offer every other day house keeping that includes fresh linens, bath and beach towels, soap, shampoo, paper towels, bottled purified water, laundry detergent for the washer/dryer room, and trash removal.

• CAN YOU GIVE US SOME OPTIONS OF OTHER AVAILABLE CONDOS IN EL FARO ? Yes, just click on our Playa Luxury Rentals website and photo album link that is located on this website just below the calendar for info and availability on all our listings in the building.

• DO WE NEED TO GET PESOS? Not necessarily. All stores and restaurants in Playa will take dollars and Euros. There are ATMs nearby and places to change money. We usually take about 100 dollars in ones, fives, and tens, which are very handy for tipping, and short cab rides around town.

We took a long weekend at the beginning of March with another couple just as Spring Break was beginning in some parts of the US. My friend is in a wheelchair and did a lot of research on this condo to make sure it was accessible for her. I must say that it was a fabulous location. We spent a lot of our time on the patio overlooking the beach, wonderful breeze, great view of the sunrise, easy access to 5th Street shops and restaurants, and my friend had no problems getting around. The condo staff was very polite and responsive, the security around the pool area was great. With a very busy beach, no one was allowed around the pool or decks that wasn’t a resident of the condos. It was a very safe area as well. The condo was clean, and just the right size for the four of us. The manager was helpful in suggesting transportation and they even stopped at Wal-Mart for us to get groceries for a slight additional charge. The property is situated right about in the middle of the area between the two ferry piers in Playa. My husband and I walked pier to pier on the beach and El Farro was BY FAR the nicest residence in the entire area along the beach. Massages pool side as well!! My only – and I mean ONLY criticism is on behalf of my friend. She could’ve gotten in and out of the pool without assistance IF it had a handrail. But that isn’t a reflection on this particular condo, just an observation. We will definitely be returning!

This was a great experience from start to finish. The manager was quick and responsive. The condo is superb and perfectly positioned in the town. It is right on the beach with windows that overlook the beach from the kitchen and from the dining room and from the lounge and from the master bedroom. Being on the ground floor you are just steps from the beach and steps from the pool and steps from the multiple loungers all serviced with ample supply of umbrellas. The condo is set up a few feet from the beach level and with a private wrap around deck there is no issue with privacy inside. With the multiple windows there was also a great breeze through the condo. Its next great feature is that it is only a half block from the famous 5th Avenue shopping and eating. FANTASTIC. While there is a beach bar on either side of the complex there was never any problem with excessive noise. Sitting on the large deck in the morning with coffee from the well stocked kitchen and a baguette from the sandwich shop next door watching the scuba divers set off on their morning dives was a relaxing way to start the day. Of course there were the early morning lounge hoggers who came down and reserved their loungers with their towels but you get them everywhere and there were always enough loungers to go around anyway. (it was great one morning when we had a flash shower after they had put their towels out – it made me laugh anyway!!) There is a great sunrise right off the beach which pours light into the condo through the multiple windows every morning. It is a shame that the restaurant in El Faro is closed as it would be a great addition to an already great complex. I would stay here again if coming to Playa.
