  • Great for families, with minor gripes.

    4/5

    We had a great time at El Faro (Reef 403), 2 BR suite with Rooftop deck. We are a family of five, really 5 adults (kids are 23,22 and 17) and felt comfortable in the apartment with some minor adjustments.

    Firstly, El Faro in general. Reasonably priced. Perfect location, walkable to everything- half block from the main drag (Avenida cinco), ten min walk to 3 huge supermarkets and Walmart. Cab stand right up the block. On the beach with beach access. Magnificent, well kept pool. A lot of posts complained about the noise at night from the local clubs- it’s there, but wasn’t so bad, unless u sleep with your windows open. Close the windows and use AC at night, we did not hear anything, not at all an issue for us. Nice landscaping. Building is kept up pretty well considering it’s not one of the latest and greatest in playa.

    Here are the issue with the complex. There is no beach at high tide, maybe 20 feet of beach at low tide. Not a dealbreaker for us, we were fine with that. Can still go for a walk on the beach but at high tide u need to wade thru calf deep water. The pool is NOT HEATED and is not mentioned anywhere online (I’ve looked). During January when outdoor temp is 80 the pool is almost not swimmable for adults, I own a pool and I’m guessing about low 70’s water temp, which is uncomfortable. (kids loved it either way). The boardwalk that separates the hotel from the beach is under construction. Both must be from a recent storm that eroded the beach and wrecked the boardwalk. Not the fault of the complex, and they are fixing it as we speak. There is a small gym which is a nice perk, but the Elliptical (which is my preference) was broken. Other machines (3 total, with treadmill and bike) worked fine. Free weights in a side room. Dedicated Laundry room as well.

    As for our suite. It was a bit smaller than expected, but still not bad, we made due and were fine (really only 2 beds, a king and a queen, the futon and couch fold out as backup beds). Our major complaint- we booked this particular suite because of access to a private rooftop patio, which has a magnificent view, and was our favorite spot to eat lunch everyday. The issue is the pics all show what is obviously a jacuzzi. I couldn’t figure out why it was called a “plunge pool”. Well, no heat, no jets. Again, we loved the rooftop anyway, but were disappointed that it wasn’t mentioned anywhere that the jacuzzi doesn’t work especially since this time of year the water is freezing and the main pool

  • Awesome beachfront condo!

    5/5

    We had the best time staying at this condo! The location couldn’t have been better and everything was exactly as it was described in the listing. The concierge staff was so helpful and kind, and the security personnel made us feel very safe. The private pool and rooftop lounge pool were a huge plus. We could not recommend this property more!
