“Very Nice”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The property was very nice and very clean. The location (one block to 5th avenue) is great. A/C kept the condo nice and cool, pool area was cleaned daily, and security was onsite at all times. We did use the kitchen a lot which was nice. Housekeeping came in every other day and did a great job. There is an issue with the shower in the ensuite bathroom and that is that the unit above appears to be leaking into the ceiling of 308's shower. The light fixture is coming undone so we stopped using that shower. Also, it would be nice if there were a lounge chair or two on the patio. I would definitely recommend this unit, and will be staying again in the future.

“Great experience at EFS308”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We (2 people) stayed at EFS308 and have no complaints. The unit was very well equipped, clean, and had great views of the Caribbean and beach. Having 2 full bathrooms for a 1 bedroom also worked out well. The location is a prime spot for exploring PDC, 4 blocks down is Carboncitos which we hit a few times, and you're just one very short block from 5th, right on the water. And no complaints about the staff or management company either, they were all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

“Ideal stay at El Faro”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We used to stay in the old El Faro Hotel before it was replaced by the condos. It was our favorite place and we were sad to see it go. After staying elsewhere over the years, we decided to try our old favorite in the new condo format. I was a little wary given the disaster stories of the Encanto days, but I want to tell you this is a whole new world. Everything about our stay was smooth and easy, and we loved everything about the new El Faro. Caribbean Beach Properties' service is amazing as is the on-site service from everyone involved. We stayed in a one-bedroom in the Surf Building (#308 to be precise). Terrific! Wifi in the room. Two great full bathrooms with rainwater showers (plus a tub in the master bath). That beats any hotel. Bath towels and beach towels plush and galore. Fantastic view of the pool, beach, and sea. Gorgeous property. Chairs and umbrella provided. Nice restaurant (Wicky's) for lunch and beach service. One block from Starbucks for breakfast. When I messed up the code on the safe, someone was there to fix it in minutes. What's not to like? El Faro, old friend, we will be back.
