We stayed at this property for 4 nights in July. We wanted to stay at a condo, rather than at a hotel, because we were going to be out a lot of time. It was just perfect for our family of 5 with kids. The property of El Faro has an excellent location, one block from 5th street, where you'll find lots of restaurants and shops, and it feels really safe, even late at night. The condo looks very new. Attention and service was perfect at all times. The beach is wonderful, beautiful sand, chairs and you can ask for an umbrella if you need one. We had a car and they offer free covered parking.
The condo we stayed at was absolutely wonderful and in a great location: Reef building, first floor, with direct access to the pool, and just a few steps from the beach. The decoration was lovely. It was very well furnished, rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. It had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a futton and a sofa bed, so it was perfect for a family of 5 or 6. We didn't cook a lot, as we were visiting the area, but it was great to have a kitchen for breakfast, snacks and drinks. We loved the big terrace, as some other condos don't have it. The washer/dryer unit was very handy, as we were going to Cancun for 5 more nights, so I was able to have a fresh start of clothes.
We would recommend El Faro to anyone and will definitely stay here again next time.
