I have not been up into the Faro, because each time I've been there it was closed. It is in the Marina Vallarta which is a great area to visit to look at yachts for fun and to find nice restaurants outside of the main town are.

Several years ago they had a much needed remodeling and upgrade of the marina light house. You can get a good drink and look out over the harbor with wonderful breezes of the water. A perfect ending to a meal and helps to put you into a more relaxed Mexican Mode.

This has always been my favorite place in all of PV. I like the view of the lush mountains, the tranquil sea and dreamy sunsets. Hum. Doesn't get any better. This is a bar so don't come hungry.

We stopped here for a couple of drinks at night with 7 people. Somewhat of a tourist trap feel but good atmosphere. Service a bit slow but tolerable and cashing out is even slower. We just had some chicken wings and they were a 5 out of 10 rating, drinks were good but the bar stock tequila was poor. Check... More

Very pleasant place with great marina views. Food average but the location makes up for it. Great margaritas. Staff friendly and efficient. Do not recommend for a gourmet meal but excellent casual atmosphere

Wish I would've seen these reviews before I used my card. My friends have been here numerous times and suggested this place. We tried to pay the tab with a card and waited 15 minutes for the transaction to be completed. They told us they had "a problem with the machine." I had a bad feeling and we ended up... More

Went here last week for an after dinner drink and to see the view. It was a very very costly drink for my sister. She ordered 2 drinks from the bar and stood for at least 6 minutes at the bar waiting on the bar man to return back to her with her debit/credit card. At the time we though... More
