“Really nice place”
The location was great. Close to 5th ave, and Walmnart. The beach was good. The water was more churned and looked cloudy. To either side not so good. If you go north it smells like sea weed, bad and there was rocks in the water. To the south the beach was starting to erode and had rocks in the water- towards luna encantata. We checked that place to. The property looked nice. This unit had a great view. Very well maintained, updated. Excellent. If you want super beach stay on the south side of the cozumel pier / senior frogs. We did stay down there to and walk was couple blocks to 5th. The management company was good. Do not expect much from the front desk.
“3rd Time is Not always a Charm”
I have stayed at El-Faro 208 a few times over the years, I lived in the area for years so know it well. 1st time I stayed here I thought it was the perfect Condo, Gorgeous unit, Directly on Beach, Best Steak House Below ( Wickys ) and best location close to everything... Well this past time I realized all the benefits are not so important when the unit is in disarray... 1st off weather was the worst I have seen in Mx in the 20 years Ive been going... The unit smells like Mold, With all the rain the unit literally flooded ( If you want to see pics let me know ) Water poured through the aC units which made them useless BTW it was 95 everyday... ***very important to know Tabitha from Rentals Your Way did everything she could possibly do to make my group happy. In the end there was nothing to salvage this trip... No more El Faro 208 for me but the location is still great... Aldea Tai I love as well and I will return there my next trip !!!
Response from the manager El Faro Surf 208 is a luxury ocean front unit that many people highly enjoy both because of the location as the review mentions and the large,spacious, luxury condo. Unfortunately when Playa Del Carmen experiences this type of terrible torrential rain the porous cement condos can only withstand so much before water seeps through the cement into the condos either through the air conditioners or the patios or other ways. Caribbean Beach Properties ( the management company) does everything possible to fix and to maintain these units. In the case of severe weather there is only so much that can be done. The leaks have been addressed and the unit is maintained with the highest standards. Just remember when it rains in Mexico it pours. We will always do out best to help the client and work closely with the management company to make the stays as comfortable as possible. Sincerely, Tabitha Rentals Your Way
Everything about this condo is great. The location and the size is superb, but the internet and phone does not work. You have to go downstairs to the lobby if you want to get on the internet. This is the only bad thing I have to say about this unit. Please get a better system in place. The rest is for you to see yourself.
“Family Vacation/Wedding Planning”
We rented this condo for a week while we were in Playa planning our wedding. There was a total of 7 adults and 2 kids. Over all the condo is really nice and in a great location. You can walk every where and the view is amazing. In my opinion this condo is all about the location. There are a few things that were lacking. First thing was the firs 4 night there was no bedding in one of the beds therefore it was completely unusable as they had no extra blankets or sheets any where in the house. Also the toilets really suck they do not flush very well and for part of our stay they had major drain issues in the parking garage and it made the entire area smell really bad. Another negative here is that you are right above Wikis bar so it is very very loud sometimes as late as 4 am. This is not a hotel so if there are issues you cannot just go downstairs because they will not help you at all. There will be phone number given to you and you will call it if there are any issues. When we called about the sheets the first day we arrived it took them 4 days to get the sheets to us.
Response from the manager We are happy that you enjoyed the location and beautiful beach front view that El Faro Surf 208 has. We try to supply the beds as needed with sheets and blankets. The pull out couch that was needing the extra bedding was not made prior to the stay as it is only made up upon request to keep the sheets and blankets fresh. We are sorry that it took a while to get the extra blankets and sheets you needed. We have improved the management and concierge services for El Faro and have a dedicated member of our staff on site every day. The toilet and drain situation has also been taken care of. As with any new building El Faro has gone through some growing pains. The 24/7 number for emergency issues will get you a live person that will take care of you immediately. We hope you come and stay in El Faro again.
“Great Views, Great Location”
We stayed in this condo unit at the beginning of March. We had 7 ppl, which felt very comfortable as the unit is probable 1200 sq feet, if not more. We've worked with Jeff Hughes in the past and have found him to always be very helpful, hard-working and honest. Encanto El Faro is a lovely property with a great pool. The staff was always helpful and friendly, especially Sylvia at the front desk! The beach is also great for swimming, people-watching, etc.
