Property description

Come share our slice of heaven on earth at Playa del Carmen!

Arena Blanca is located within walking distance of everything you need & we think it's the most beautiful condo complex in Playa. The locals call it 'the beautiful building'. The classic Spanish architecture, brick-lined rotunda ceilings, tile floors, marble counters & shower speak 'quality'.

Forget the rental car while you're in Playa!! We're located on Calle 38 Norte between 5th & 10th at the newer - quieter end of Playa. It's just a few minutes walk to great beaches, shopping & dining on 5th Ave., 2 modern grocery stores & several smaller markets. Ask us about the local Mexican and Italian restaurants right around the corner. We’ll give you recommendations, if you like!

We have two units for rent - across the hall from each other. We chose second-floor condos for the view & a little privacy! Built in 2006 it's an 11-unit gated, secure complex. Best part is not having a lot of people around! It's a great place!

The private pool has an island palapas for shade. There's access to a roof-top terrace to sunbathe or watch the sun rise & set over Playa del Carmen & the Caribbean.

It's a well-maintained complex with full-time maintenance and gardening.

Our prices INCLUDE all fees (no booking/service fees!), bottled water and wireless internet.

The manager speaks fluent English & Spanish and is available to meet any of your needs (tours, rental cars, spa treatments, catering medical issues, airport transfers) or questions.

Exercise options - besides running on the beach & walking 5th Ave! It's a 5-minute walk to the outdoor city sports center that features a track for running, stairs for climbing and basketball hoops for a quick game of B-ball. You can even take in a soccer game at night. A fitness center is just across the street too.

Other Amenities

  • Arena Blanca is the most beautiful condos complex in Playa. As you walk through the hand-wrought iron gates to enter the private courtyard of these condos, you'll agree it an idyllic setting. Classic Spanish architecture, conscientious space planning and a fun Mexican feel makes these some of the nicest condos in Playa del Carmen. You'll be able to tell the difference in quality from the handmade cabinets to the lighted brick-lined rotunda ceilings. We do not walk out to the pool, but rather overlook it so you can choose to be a part of the happenings at the pool or you can choose a little privacy. Our location on Calle Treinta y Ocho (38th Street) and Avenida Diez (10th Avenue) is perfectly located on the quieter end of Playa. Just a few minutes walk to great restaurants and bars along Fifth Avenue. We are just around the corner from charming, local authentic Mexican, Italian, Argentinian restaurants. ...moreless
