We stayed with another couple at The Elements from 2-29-14 to 4-5-14 and had a wonderful time. The people at the desk knew who we were on arrival and the check in was a breeze. Our unit was on the end with a beautiful balcony where we enjoyed coffee in the morning and drinks before and after dinner. We did...

Have been staying at the Elements 4 out of the last 6 years. While the complex looks good externally, much improvement could be made in quality of amenities. The unit we stayed in had no dresser or table in the master bedroom; one towel rack and one hook in the master bath with very little counterspace. There was a 4-cup...

The Elements is a condo complex that rents on a weekly or monthly basis. It is an exceptional property and we think one of the best in the area. It has a wonderful huge and long pool in the centre as well as a children section and the far end. Wonderful loungers in the pool and umbrellas and loungers surrounding...

We have stayed in #211 this week... Fantastic view, pristine grounds, and fabulous staff- especially Martin ("Marteen") who greeted us and helped us coming and going throughout our visit. Martin made us feel so welcome and he was always so kind and accommodating.The whole concierge staff was delightful. The private beach area and pool have the most comfortable chairs. This...

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,...

This has got be one of the best places to stay. Private beach which is amazing...swimming pool which is also amazing. Even though there were a lot of families and kids around they were all well behaved and you never noticed them! Peaceful, clean, relaxing, chilled. We came to get away from it all and it certainly did the job!...

I'll start with saying I am a complete foodie and snob when it comes to travel so much so, I have never travelled with my kids before. So this is based on a family friendly not single romantic vacation. So the town of Playa is pretty nice with tons of stores and great little restaurants. The town is literally a...

Did a quick 5 day getaway with 3 other couples. Very clean condos. Beach is amazing with a private beach area. On the edge of 5th avenue but well worth the walk (bring a good pair of walking shoes). Caribbean Royal is an amazing restaurant right next door for lunch. Staff are very friendly. We will come back next year.

Construction in a unit near us with three hours of hammering drove me over the edge. But what did me in was the initial response from the general manager that he was not responsible for what individual units did, including construction. Fast forward, another day of hammering, several emails and calls, we have moved units and can now use our...
