"My girlfriends and I had a fantastic weekend at Arena Blanca. Fred was quick to respond to my inquiry and Nadia (the property manager) was soooooo friendly and hospitable. Located in a great area. Felt safe, especially with the friendly security guard. Wifi worked great, AC worked great. The place was clean and quiet even though it was so close to 5th."

"We stayed here for a week, we were a family of 4. The house is nicely updated with a nice modern kitchen(minus the dishwasher), and updated bathrooms. The condo is pretty spacious for 4 people. We loved the jellyfish lamps by the dining table ( we went shopping for one after we saw it) and the general décor of the condo.
We had the swimming pool for ourselves whenever needed, we saw maintenance staff clean the pool every morning( and I think a thorough surface cleaning once a week). I didn't see anyone else use the pool, except perhaps on the first day.
Jeanette(the owner) is a great person to work with. We somewhat arrived earlier than the usual check-in time and we were accommodated although this was peak season, and the condo just got vacant from the previous renters.
We rented a car, so we covered a lot of attractions/activities during our 7 day stay( so we used the condo mostly only during the early mornings & evenings), with only one entire evening spent at playa del Carmen for shopping & souvenirs( we walked about 20 mins to 5th ave).
The only nice to have would have been a dishwasher in the kitchen( we had breakfast each of the 7 days at the condo); and may be update the leather sofas in the near future - they are beginning to show their age, but this is really small stuff compared to the overall experience. Highly recommend!"

"My husband, daughter and I enjoyed such a relaxing week in this spacious, beachfront condo. The layout was perfect with two very large bedrooms and a full living room, dining room and kitchen with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beach. The unit was impeccably clean, and the cleaning service provided every 2 days was top notch. The rooftop patio was one of our favorite places to hang out at the end of each day, and such a treat to have our own private rooftop overlooking the beach. The beach out front was great, with lounge chairs ready and waiting each day. The pool was a tad bit on the small size, and when being used by multiple families with small children, it got a bit too noisy and way too crowded for our liking. The location right off 5th Ave was perfect! Shopping and restaurants galore, with so much to see and do, with a different food choice for each night. We did not rent a car, and didn't need one, with taxis at the ready at the top of the block to take you wherever you need. We were so sad to leave that we came home and rebooked for another week this summer. I was so pleasantly surprised by this condo and our wonderful week in Playa del Carmen!"

"Well equipped, clean condo. Staff is amazing and helpful. Pool area was maintained wonderfully. We walked the beach both directions and found our beach area was the best there was! No vendors, no piles of seaweed, no smells! Close to the action of 5th avenue, grocery store and lots of great little side street restaurants. Safe. We walked everywhere night and day and were never concerned. I would rent this spot again in a second. You will love it. Ate at Fruita Madre (vegan options) Lafamiglia for great Italian ($$).Authentic cheap meal on 30th and about 8th - right near Walmart (it has yellow awnings) - AMAZING food - no english menu- go there for sure - can't remember the name, sorry!!! We took the 35 peso local bus - the Collectivo (very safe) to Akumal and visited La Buena Vida (beach bar literally) and Las 3 Acapulquenas ($)Not fancy, basically a family that cooks for you (they do speak english). Was our best meal!! The Condo was in the perfect spot for crazy tourism busy but also for walking outside of that for more culture. You will love this place. It is super close to the ferry port that you can take to cozumel for the day too! Just don't rent cars from Cuarto y Quinto Poder!! And don't get gas yourself if you do rent- trust me. We also loved swimming in the cenote's and visiting Tulum! You will not be sorry renting this amazing condo!!!"
