El Faro Residences

Playa del Carmen, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

El Faro, Playa del Carmen vacation condo hotel, Riviera Maya, Mexico

  • Comfort & Fun Come Together in Playa del Carmen

    Not every top-ranking specialty lodging can boast a laid-back atmosphere, true 5-star hospitality and a prime beach location. El Faro Hotel and Condos has it all and much-much more.

    This Exclusive Hotel is strategically positioned in the center of Playa del Carmen’s gorgeous beach, just a block away from 5th Ave  where great shopping and restaurants are found. So you don’t have to go far to find dive centers, gourmet restaurants, casual bistros and a bustling nightlife.

    Besides its great location, El Faro offers its guests the comfort, service and amenities of a five-star resort. This is why El Faro has been so popular with honeymooners and groups of friends looking for a worry-free and fun Mexican vacation.

    Every detail inside each El Faro suite or condo is well thought of to make sure that you will not need anything while staying there – from stylish interior design to cozy beds, from spacious living room to a well-furnished kitchen, from high-end air conditioning systems to large plasma TVs.

    And unlike other hotels, the pool-side patios (lower level units) and ocean-side terraces (upper level units) are not only used, but highly appreciated by El Faro’s guests. The outdoor spaces are a prized part of these accommodations. Almost everyone who stays here opts for  breakfast on the balcony and as the sun is setting, a cocktail to start the evening off right.

    Beach Club, Beachfront Pool and Great Sea Views

    Another great feature of the El Faro Hotel is its huge beachfront pool that is designed for both kids and adults.  The pool faces the beach so many guests spend hours looking at the horizon while simply lazing around the poolside – taking cool dips every so often to cool off from the tropical sun. The close proximity between the pool and the beach is the main reason why most guests love just hanging out in teh common areas of this beautiful property. El Faro’s pool and the beach is just perfect for your vacation. Guests love every minute of it!

    Insider’s tip: If you are looking for a top-class vacation, we suggest a Premium Signature Bedroom Suite Upgrade. The price difference per person is only a few dollars, but you will receive more spacious bedrooms, discounts and privileges, as well as a welcome gift of a fruit basket and bottle of wine.
