The Elements condo description

The Elements Condominiums are surrounded by wondrous beaches and luscious vegetation ... a place just steps away from the pristine waters of the Caribbean; a place of comfort which you can call your own, in the heart of Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya.

Located on the beach, The Elements counts with ocean views and hotel-like service. It has a tremendous pool and beautiful gardens located just off of the most tranquil and serene beach in all of Playa, yet steps away from Canibal Royal, a full-service beach club and 5th Avenue. The Elements boasts a lobby staffed with management and concierge services. Above the lobby, you will find a full fitness gym, business center, and solarium with hot tub, all with ocean views.

With a semi-private elevator, this 2 bedroom/2 bathroom beachfront condo vacation rental is newly furnished and equipped with everything...even beach towels and umbrella are provided.

Fully Equipped Down to the Details: The unit has two satellite TVs (one in living room/one in bedroom), a multizone DVD player to play US and non-US DVDs, and wireless internet. The master bedroom has a king size bed with ensuite bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has two twin beds. There is a full size sleeper sofa in the living room which sleeps 2 for a total of 6 people. There is also a portable crib/playpen for an infant.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and all you need to cook and entertain. There is plenty of closet space. The condominium unit comes with its own laundry room with washer and dryer.

Your Elements staff provides daily maid service, bottled water, local cell phone, and on-site staff and concierge to provide you with any support you require to arrange restaurant and tour bookings, airport transportation, delivery of groceries, private massages, or anything else you need to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:

                  This bear was treated to a luxurious condominium in Playa del Carmen. Riviera Maya has beautiful beaches, an abundance of activities and diversions, and friendly locals.

                  The property is located right on the beach in an area of Playa del Carmen which is close to all the entertainment on 5th Avenue yet quiet enough to escape the crowds at night. When you first open the door, you’ll be impressed by the “Wow” factor. The condo itself has a nice big living area and open kitchen with upscale furniture and lighting. Right off the living room there is a large patio where you have stellar views of the Mexican Caribbean. A nice big outdoor sectional and table and chairs make it a great place to have breakfast or enjoy the ocean breeze at sunset. The interior has a chic, modern décor, and includes details such as natural stone floors, granite countertops, satellite TV, wifi, and oversized bathrooms with rain showers. The kitchen is more than fully stocked with supplies.

                  The condo is located in the Elements complex, which has an array of amenities including daily maid service, a concierge, a fitness center, business lounge, airport transfers, and a fantastic pool & jacuzzi. It also has access to its own private beach, complete with umbrellas and comfy chairs. The staff is very friendly and willing to help whenever they can.

                  Restaurants are nearby, and you can choose among any number of international cuisines. If you’d rather stay home, the kitchen is fully equipped. You can even have the staff stock your kitchen with food when you arrive or have a chef come in to cook a specially prepared meal. Another option is to have food delivered from a number of the local restaurants.

                  From the beach area, you can walk to some of the most famous spots along the beach including Mamitas, and you are near two dive and snorkel spots. This bear took advantage of the world-class diving in some of the unique cenotes nearby, which are underground caves filled with crystal clear water, and over on the island of Cozumel which was just a ferry ride away. The condo is just one hour from Cancun by car, and you can enjoy excursions to places like Tulum and Cozumel which are both within an hour by car and ferry, respectively.

                  All in all it is a great way to enjoy Playa del Carmen.

                  Spend your next vacation or holiday in Playa del Carmen, a charming laid-back resort town located on the beautiful warm waters of the Caribbean Sea on the Mexican Mayan Riviera. Located just 45 minutes south of Cancun Airport, but a world away from the high rise hotel strip, Playa del Carmen offers something for everyone - beautiful beaches, great shopping, fabulous restaurants and beach-front cafes, and a vibrant nightlife. For the more active, Playa offers a multitude of sports activities including golf, parasailing, world class scuba diving and deep sea fishing, and several yoga studios. Playa is ideal as a vacation spot for families with young children or teenagers. Close by are several water theme parks and nature reserves providing activities during the day as well as evening family entertainment. For culture, the ancient civilization of the Mayans are close by to explore including the clifftop temple of Tulum, the pyramid of Coba, and the UNESCO heritage site of Chichen Itza.

                  Other Activities: Mayan ruins, Parasailing, Rock Climbing, Boating, Wildlife Viewing

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: I'm originally from Ohio, but I currently live in New York City. I've lived in 7 different countries including two years in Bermuda and I can honestly say that Playa is one of my favorite places to spend time. I speak English, Spanish, French, and Russian.

                  Why the Owner Chose The Elements:
                  I found Playa to be the perfect Mexican getaway from the East Coast. New York is just a 3 and a half hour flight to the Cancun airport, and Playa is just another 45 minutes from there by car. I prefer Playa to Cancun because it has a much more international flavor and the types of activities offered vary to suit everyone's taste, from families looking to enjoy time together to singles more interested in the restaurants and bars. I love spending time there.
