    Our El Faro Vacation

    This was our first time at El Faro and it was magnificent thanks to our butler Alexander and the rest of the staff. We had a two bedroom by the ocean and our room was madup two times a day very clean and taken cared of. The food was excellent very upscale environment. I will absolutely go back to El Faro.

    Delightful resort and people

    This resort was great! The staff was very friendly and we found great people here. The food and drinks were good. Buffet not our fav but, restaurants were super yummy. By the time we left we had tried them all and definitely urge one to eat on these over the buffet. Our butler, Alexander was super helpful and got on things when we asked. Would totally come back here.

    Wedding Experience

    Dargeny was an amazing butler and accommodated all our needs. He was able to get transportation for one of the couples with us to go on a golf excursion. He went above and beyond to help us for our wedding. Along with the wedding coordinator for our resort. If you are looking for a butler make sure you get Dargeny. If you are looking to have a wedding here go ahead and do it!

    Off season week vacation

    Good ac and decent food the time we went was a bit empty but I assume when the resort is full it would be more activities around the pool with the entertainment team. The restaurants are hard to get a reservation but only good one to go to is Sakura.
