"Good stay once things settled down, would suggest some new unstained sheets, or the manager should have authorization to replace damaged and stained sheets. The bed experience was rather disgusting! Kitchen could use some updated and better dishes, frying pans, all old and damaged. A kettle might be nice. Condo was very nice, clean and more than adequate, good furniture and comfortable, tastefully decorated. However, in order to use the hot tub on the roof, I had to clean the mortar out from recent repairs. But its clean now. There was no dryer or anything to hang clothes on to dry, so that was a little difficult. I was told we had weekly cleaning, but in 5 weeks the cleaners came in once
the walk to the beach is more like 5 blocks, not 3, but not bad. The pool area and amenities are very very nice, wonderful helpful, friendly staff and everything is well maintained and very clean. Rather noisy at times in the night. All in all a good experience, just needs attention to a few details, mostly the sheets.

"Four of us just returned from a week in Shawn's condo. It was a great place to stay; the condo was completely furnished and so comfortable and clean. The location was the best. We walked to 5th Avenue every night for dinner and shopping. Also walked to Walmart and Mega to pick up some food and they are both an easy walk. Shawn was super to deal with and so helpful. This was my first time to use VRBO and couldn't ask for a better experience. Highly recommend El Faro and Shawn's condo."

"Arena Blanca is one of the best kept secrets in Playa del Carmen. It is centrally located less than minutes from 5th Avenue, but in a fairly quiet side of town. The condo is beautifully decorated with native art and accents and is extremely private and comfortable and within walking distance of everything. The pool and the surrounding grounds are gorgeous and impeccably maintained. The staff are warm and accommodating. This is an extremely quiet complex with only eleven units total. The guests at this complex consisted of several families with children and alot of adult couples. Dealing with Shari and Lisa throughout the entire process was a delight. They were great at providing whatever information we needed and at addressing any personal issues we had immediately. They supplied us with a handy guide to restaurants and local places to see and things to do which proved to be most helpful. We wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else but Arena Blanca on our next trip to Playa del Carmen. Thank you Shari and Lisa for sharing this magical place with us. We loved it!"
