“Nicest property in Playa del Carmen”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2014

Loved it! Great location, on the beach. Nice combo of hotel condo living. Much nicer than a residential condo. You have your private space and access to hotel services.

“Beautiful pool and beach away from the crowds”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2013

Four teacher friends rented this unit for February break, based on a retired colleague's recommendation (she was here with her husband in November, 2012). It proved to be a great base to explore Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area and more than met our needs. We rented through Bric rentals, and this seems to be the way to go, as you get additional services you might not get when renting from an individual owner. These included maid service on weekdays, a cell phone to contact the manager Damian 24/7, etc. They also arranged for a grocery package to be in the unit when we arrived. All the units in this complex are two bedroom, and the only problematic aspect was that two of us had to share a king bed. It would be nice if the kings could convert to two beds when being used for renters that don't want to share a bed. But the two that shared said the bed was so big, it was like sleeping in your own bed. The unit was nicely furnished and had large closets, nice bathrooms, a washer/dryer (great help!), ironing board/iron (which leaked), and fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, etc. The view from our balcony was of the pool and the beach beyond. The rooftop terrace was a little less spectacular than it could be -- just two loungers, a hot tub with a cover that wouldn't stay on when it was windy, and a broken down grill (there was a new Weber grill on the balcony, we would have preferred a gas grill). I think some of the furniture on the main floor's balcony was meant to be on the rooftop terrace but had been moved downstairs. It was easy to get to Fifth ave., however the two blocks up to it are in a state of construction and without lighting at night. It was safe to walk though. We also took cabs home some nights. If you want to walk the full length of 5th ave. bring your walking shoes, it is hike to get to the end, but we liked being away from the noise yet still accessible to the action. Elements made a great home away from home!

“The Elements - Ph14 - a perfect chilled out holiday!”

Reviewed 31 May 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Elements in april this year (before the Easter madness) and enjoyed a truly fabulous holiday. After a very busy few months at work, my only request was to totally relax and this place certainly delivered! The location is perfect - a short walk into town for livelier nights out but far enough away so as not to disturb the tranquility. Our penthouse apartment was fantastic. There was plenty of space, 2 beds, 2 baths, large comfy lounge, spacious balcony overlooking the beautiful pool and beach and fabulous roof terrace complete with jacuzzi - perfect for sundowners and playing cards at the end of a 'busy' day on the beach! An added bonus was having a kitchen complete with washing machine, which meant that we could avoid taking home the usual bags of laundry at the end of the trip. The cleaning staff were excellent, coming in twice a day, and the apartment was always immaculate as a result. Damian at the front desk was so helpful and friendly, organising a rental car for us, giving us great restaurant recommendations and even going so far as to lend me his printer over the weekend when I needed to work. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. As a consequence, the Elements feels more like a hotel and takes all the effort of the "self" out of self catering. The only downside - which is due to no fault of the Elements - is the sulphur smell on the beach. It is such a shame as we tended to sit around the pool instead of at the beach club, tending only to venture to the beach for the (blissful) massages and to go for long lazy lunches at the fabulous Cannibal beach club next door. Since the pool was huge, stunning and very quiet when we were there, clearly this was no sacrifice and did not affect our enjoyment of the hotel one bit. All in all, I can wholeheartedly recommend the Elements. We loved it so much that we looked into buying one of the apartments and already planning when we can go back!

“Fantastic vacation in Playa - we'll definitely be back!”

The Elements was the center of our week in Playa. We were traveling with our kids (8 and 5) and also another family. All of us enjoyed the experience a lot including the accomodations, terrace hot tub, excellent location, proximity to the beach as well as easy walk to 5th Avenue, and the excellent service provided by the concierge/staff. Highly recommended.
