This was a great experience from start to finish. The manager was quick and responsive. The condo is superb and perfectly positioned in the town. It is right on the beach with windows that overlook the beach from the kitchen and from the dining room and from the lounge and from the master bedroom. Being on the ground floor you are just steps from the beach and steps from the pool and steps from the multiple loungers all serviced with ample supply of umbrellas. The condo is set up a few feet from the beach level and with a private wrap around deck there is no issue with privacy inside. With the multiple windows there was also a great breeze through the condo. Its next great feature is that it is only a half block from the famous 5th Avenue shopping and eating. FANTASTIC. While there is a beach bar on either side of the complex there was never any problem with excessive noise. Sitting on the large deck in the morning with coffee from the well stocked kitchen and a baguette from the sandwich shop next door watching the scuba divers set off on their morning dives was a relaxing way to start the day. Of course there were the early morning lounge hoggers who came down and reserved their loungers with their towels but you get them everywhere and there were always enough loungers to go around anyway. (it was great one morning when we had a flash shower after they had put their towels out - it made me laugh anyway!!) There is a great sunrise right off the beach which pours light into the condo through the multiple windows every morning. It is a shame that the restaurant in El Faro is closed as it would be a great addition to an already great complex. I would stay here again if coming to Playa.
