Surf 302 @ El Faro was awesome! Super clean, great view & location right in the middle of PDC. Steps away from the beach & 5th Ave with all the shops & restaurants. Clean rooms, everything you need is already there. $30US for an hour long massage right by the pool with the ocean waves providing the soundtrack... Amazing! Communication was quick & Nicolas was able to arrange for us to hire a private car (SUV) from the airport. Paul met us at the property & got us all checked in & answered a few questions we had about the area...it was our first time here. Paul was awesome throughout our stay.
The El Faro staff was also amazing. Polite, professional & very helpful w/ questions. The building is totally safe & secure.
We had a great time in PDC & even though the clubs were only a block away (not really our thing), El Faro is quiet & super relaxing at all hours of the day/night. We walked the entire beach to see what other buildings were comparable and only 1 or 2 were anywhere close. This is THE SPOT if you want to be in PDC & close to everything, but still enjoy some quiet.
We hired the same private car for a full day excursion. Our driver Raul was awesome & took us to Tulum, Akumal, Manatee & Sak Actun Cenote. Highly recommended! It cost us $170US for the driver, but gained us a few advantages: 1. we weren't at the most popular cenotes with hundreds of tourists. They can cost up to $90pp. Ours cost $4pp&$30pp. 2. At Akumal, it's $30 for snorkel gear pp. Our driver brought us the gear for free! Super deal overall & an amazing day hitting all those spots. I'll post some pics if I can.
I'm giving the overall experience 5 stars.
I do have a few comments in order to be fully transparent & helpful to others in my review:
1. There is an additional charge for ELECTRICITY in the unit. You have to pay extra, out of pocket for your A/C. Ours was around $90 for the week. This was not communicated until we arrived for check in. In fairness, we booked super last minute, but I don't see why this info wouldn't be included in the description of the property.
*Nicolas arranged for a free extra maid service during our stay, that was a nice gesture, but I'd like to see them just be more transparent w/ any charges.
2. Our private car didn't come for our departure. Paul fixed it for us & called the car service, they sent a regular Taxi to get us to the airport. That's not what I paid for & I felt that maybe a little discount/refund was in order. Stuff happens, I totally understand, but if I'm paying for a steak, I don't want a hamburger ;)
Anyway, like I said...overall, 5 stars on all fronts. Highly Recommended!
