Ease into tropical living with the comforts of Arena 2. With palm trees and an oceanfront view, this secluded 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom condo is centrally located for easy access to the residential community of Punta Esmeralda´s onsite amenities. Arena 2 guests will find no need to leave the development. Just beyond the patio are two common area pools and Punta Esmeralda´s beach club restaurant. Grabbing a cocktail at sunset is an easy 30 second walk from your front door. Speaking of sunset, what a perfect time to take a walk on the beach, or play an evening match of volleyball. The only thing that that separates Arena 2 from the beach is a small common area pool and patch of grass with swaying palm trees.
This villa greets its guests with warm hospitality and the cool comforts of a luxury getaway in the tropics. Perfect for larger groups, this villa rental's grand scale and ground floor orientation give the ambiance of seclusion with the palm trees and tropical garden outlining the area to give it a special intimacy to your outdoor dining, grilling and entertaining. The expansive terrace allows something for everyone, swimming, reading or tanning on the lounge chairs, grilling a nice local arrachera on the charcoal grill, or eating snacks at the table under the shaded pergola. Guests will find little reason to ever leave the patio as there is something for everyone.
Entertaining is made easy with an open floor plan and generous seating throughout the condo, inside dining or out. Arena 2 features seating for six on the patio or inside in the dining room. The fully-equipped kitchen has all the standard appliances and plateware for formal dining or plastics for patio or poolside family dining. Better yet, treat yourself to a Destino kitchen assistant and have local meals prepared and spread out for you along the kitchen bar to serve yourself. Walk inside from a hard day´s work at the pool to food magically prepared and waiting for you (check out our photos of the Chile Rellenos -yummy).
With two master bedrooms, Arena 2 features plush mattresses, televisions, en-suite bathrooms and not-to-miss ocean views. The master bathroom has a large bathtub and double sink, perfect for families with children. The other two bedrooms provide equal relaxation with all the comforts of a tropical getaway, both featuring two twin size beds that can easily be pushed together to make a king (upon request). All bedrooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans for your comfort while vacationing in tropical, humid climate.
You will probably not want to leave the comforts of this condo, but if you do the villages of Bucerias and La Cruz de Huancaxtle are each about 5 minutes away for you to explore. Practice your Spanish and pick some colorful souvenirs for friends and family at Bucerias flea market, or pick up some fresh treats at the La Cruz artesian market. Both towns offer a variety of restaurant and street tacos options.
Capture the lush flora with its swaying palm trees and tropical gardens. Go for a swim in the eight common pools and a double-sized plunge pool. Take to the sand for a game of beach volleyball or dine alfresco as you laugh the night away. With up-to-date amenities, expansive accommodations and stunning views of Bahia de Banderas, you will love your stay at Arena 2 in Punta Esmeralda.

My husband, son and I stayed at this home and had an amazing trip. The home is extremely clean, well decorated, comfortable and you cant beat the view! It has a nice size kitchen and large rooms. The staff was friendly and the complex was very well taken care of. The pools are great too. We will for sure be back to this house!

For the second straight year, our large group rented properties at Punta Esmeralda over hte Christmas holidays. Punta is perfect for our family in terms of location, the tennis courts, and workout gym. However, for the second straight year, we were disappointed with the conditon of the properties. In one, the dishwasher didn't work the entire time of our stay. In the other unit, the plunge pool jets never worked and so the water was stagnant. The dishwasher problem was identified a week before our arrival, yet was never fixed. The plunge pool problem was identified the day or our arrival and never fixed.
The properties at Punta are, geneally, in good condition. However, there are ongoing anonyances that distract from one's holiday. The last thing one should have to worry about while on holiday is a broken diswasher or a non-functional pool
