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 Mexican hospitality and a prime beach location. El Faro has it all and much-much more…

    This Exclusive Hotel is strategically positioned in the center of Playa del Carmen gorgeous beach, just a block away from 5th Ave and a block away from 12th Street. So you don’t have to go far to find the best shops, diving 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 the reason it has been so popular  with honeymooners and groups of friends looking for a worry-free and fun side of Mexico.

    Every detail inside El Faro 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 big plasma TV.

    And unlike in many 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. Almost everyone who stays here, opts for  breakfast on the balcony and as the sun is setting. Young couples usually take a bottle of wine and enjoy the amazing view, while listening to the top-notch reggae, salsa and jazz bands playing live in the Blue Parrot, Coco Maya restaurants close by.

    However, when the balcony doors are closed, any sounds from the street disappear, making sure that you have a good night’s sleep.

    Beach club, beachfront pool and great sea views

    Another great feature of the El Faro is its huge beachfront pool that is designed for kids and adults alike.  The main part of the pool faces the beach so it’s naturally wonderful to spend hours looking at the views of the horizon while simply lazing around the poolside – or taking cool dips in the pool.Which is the main reason, why most guests spend most of their vacation between El Faro’s pool and the beach… and love every minute of it!

    Insider’s tip: If you are looking for a top-class vacation, we suggest that you get a Premium Signature Bedroom Suite Upgrade. The price difference per person is only a few dollars, but you will get more spacious bedrooms, in-suite high-speed internet connection, discounts and privileges, as well as a welcome treat of a fruit basket and house wine.
