My review is a few months late but hey, better than never. I was in Playa for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years and spent the first week at this condo. We had the PH unit with gorgeous ocean views and a balcony. I have stayed in many places in Playa and this was by far the best.
Pros: most condo units that I have rented only provide maid service once but Elements provided it daily which was great. There was also a w/d in the unit, welcome basket upon arrival and a private Jacuzzi upstairs on the roof. We used it daily. The unit was clean and comfortable and the a/c worked like a dream. Also free wifi.
Beach: there is a roped off area in front which is rather boring. No music, service etc but at least you have a place to lay your head. Our favorite beach club is right next door so we never really hung out in front of the condo beach. We did however get the best massages here! $20 for a hour- amazing. I had three in the seven days I stayed.
Cons: the gym here sucks. It’s a tiny room with not a lot of equipment. Not a big deal.
Overall: love this place and can’t wait to come back again for Christmas
