  • Great Location and Good for kids

    "My wife and I stayed here for a week with our two kids (2yrs old and 4 yrs old). The condo is really very nice and had everything in it that we needed. It's very spacious as well, which with two kids was a bonus. The pool was great for our kids (it has a separated shallow end). The condo is gated and security is on site, we never felt unsafe while staying there. The owners and property managers were easy to deal with. I think the location is really excellent, there is a lot of great (imho) Mexican food nearby (Los Aguachilles, Don Sirloin, El Fogon etc). And the Mega grocery store is right around the corner! We walked to the beach every day, which is really not far at all. We brought a couple strollers for this which was helpful, about 15 minutes walk with strollers. The only disadvantage of staying here, in my opinion is that you don't have a beach side view. If you can live without that I recommend staying here."

  • AWESOME!!!!!

    "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!"

  • Very nice condo

    "My husband and I rented the condo for 5 days. We were very impressed with the quick responses from the owner and manager in setting up the rental. The condo is comfortable, spacious and nicely updated. We appreciated the cable tv and played the music channels. The wi-fi worked great. The kitchen was equipped with the basic things you need to cook meals. It has a nice ambiance outside at the pool area with chair loungers and nice landscaping. It's very quiet and peaceful except for the occasional golfers teeing off. The pool was area was typically empty. The condo's location is close to 5th Av. and the beach via the Reef Resort. The Reef has a great beach and two nice pools. We got there each day at 9 am and always got two chairs on the beach, although we could never get an umbrella. We brought our own snacks, water and beer with us and discreetly drank it in insulated mugs. We made our own breakfasts and lunches and walked into town in the evenings for dinner. Claudine, the local manager, was wonderful and so accommodating. She met us when we first arrived and offered to bring us to the grocery store. She was always quick to return my calls and emails. Our favorite restaurant turned out to be a wonderful little Italian place she told us about called Casa Sofia. I would recommend this lovely condo to anyone! We will definitely consider staying here again. Thanks Gordon and Claudine!!!!"

  • Beautiful apartment, wonderful location

    "We stayed here for a week and had such a wonderful time. The apartment is perfect, beautifully furnished and well equpit. We travelled with 9 month baby and she loved it. The shared pool is very nice and never too busy. There is tons of private space with a nice balcony and roof top, all with sea view. The location is lovely and peaceful but only a short walk from 5th avenue. We loved exploring the quiet end of 5th avenue and found some lovely restaurants. There is also a beach club 5 minute walk away which did great food. I can't recommend this apartment enough."
