we stayed 4 days at the faro, marina view, all inclusive. try to get an ocean view. private beach was nice b/c there wasn't anyone trying to sell you anything. food was okay - they had a grill going so at least you saw it being cooked in front of you. kinda salty but overall, good. service and staff were wonderful and friendly. they don't offer any beach activities that they advertise and only one restaurant was avaliable throughout the whole stay. nighttime activities consisted of one man playing and singing. didn't see too many americans. with all-inclusive, only one type of beer and tequilla was offered. one pool table worked. they have wireless internet there. the room was huge - hard bed but didn't bother me. water pressure was good but the temperature wasn't consistant. great deal for the price. bargain for taxis or take a bus into town for 8 pesos. tours are avalible at the resort next door, the marina el cid, but nothing was offered to us at this hotel.
