If you have a good book and some good company...do NOT hesitate to venture to Villa del Faro. Just go. The complex is stunning. There is no other way to describe the love, art, and care that have gone into creating this magical place. It is truly a world away from everything else, in every sense. The families who have...

If looking for privacy, coziness, and to enjoy Mexico away from the all-inclusive resort area, this is your place! OMG! what a beautiful place, beautiful people, wonderful food, great vacation. Spent a couple of days there and fell in love with this fantastic, artistic, beautiful, gem an hour away from all the craziness in Cabo and a little south from... More

We were seeking a vacation spot that was off-the-grid and sustainably focused; this place met and exceeded our expectations. The journey here was an hour drive on an inland bumpy dirt road (don't take the coastal road) in a small rental car. Our hosts were pleasant; the food was good; the accommodations are lovely; and the place is very silent... More

It is a lengthy drive over washboard unsaved road (don't rent the cheapest car for the trip) but you arrive at a beautiful small complex on the coast. Family built and run, the small group of Casas supplementing the main house are beautifully designed and appointed. We stayed in the pool house, a two bedroom and bath complex with a... More

This villa is one of the most beautiful and romantic places we have ever stayed in. The drive to it is very interesting, going through arroyos, small villages and desert. The road, although not paved is solid and no problem even for our 2 WD VW Golf. Would not recommend night driving. Many cows, and some turns maybe hard to... More

We travel all over the world, and I really think that this is probably the most fantastic place we have ever stayed. It seemed like an adventure getting there, because it is on a dirt road, but in retrospect, it wasn't bad at all. The road is in pretty good shape and the directions we got were excellent. The place... More

Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. It is wonderful to be appreciated. I must apologize for our failure to provide any seafood during your visit. We try to serve fresh fish to our guests whenever we can. Unfortunately, we buy all of our fish from the local fishermen, and one entire group of them, closest to us, was put... More

Villa Del Faro is a beautiful and stunning B&B nestled into the ocean-side of the East Cape. Peaceful, quiet, beautiful sunrises can be seen from every room. Marilyn is just the best. She and her family/staff who work there are passionate about what they do and want everyone to fall in love with the East Cape just as they have... More

If you are looking for a remote vacation - this is the place. I went there with my family and a few others (11 of us, ranging in age from 5-65) and we had an amazing time. Some might find the place too remote and secluded - but not us. We spent lots of time by the pool, on the... More

We stayed at Villa Del Faro for two nights in November. The property was originally a family compound which I think gives it it's wonderful uniqueness. Each casita is completely different and they are scattered throughout the beautiful gardens. Pathways with overhanging foliage lead to the open air dining palapa where we enjoyed a large & tasty breakfast and a... More

Just returned from a stay here over Christmas; it was more like being guests in the lovely and personal beach home of friends than a hotel (in a good way). The other reviews pretty much say it all, but I wanted to add a few notes. First, for those concerned about hurricane damage, there was none in evidence. The property... More
