About the Property

Condo, 2 bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Arena Blanca...one of Playa's highest quality condominiums. Locals refer to Arena Blanca as 'The Beautiful Building' and we think you'll agree. Built in the style of Classic Spanish Architecture, this beautiful 12 unit building was built by award winning American developers in collaboration with Cancun architect, Jose Almanzac. Arena Blanca is a boutique building...small and very secure and highly recomended.

Our unit has a master bedroom and a private loft. The loft has two twin beds.

This penthouse unit at Arena Blanca is beautifully appointed with tile floors and marble counters and showers...the furnishings simple yet elegant. The most impressive feature is the large private roof top terrace and Palapa. It is suitable for sunning, dining and entertaining. There are 4 sun chairs and beautiful plants.

The ocean views and ocean breezes will give you a choice of spending your day at the beach or in the privacy of your rooftop retreat. Dinners or cocktails on the terrace are private and elegant...you will know that you are in the Caribbean as you look out over the lights of Playa and Cozumel and take in the beautiful 360 degree view of the Playa skyline. Our free WiFi is available in the entire unit includiing the roof top terrace.

Arena Blanca has a full time garden and maintenance employee and professional security from 10 am to 6am seven days a week. Our full time property manager is on site and speaks fluent English and Spanish

The beach is only 2 block away!!. Any one who knows Playa knows that the Shangrila Beach at the end of 38th street is the most beautiful...and most quiet end of the Playa beaches. The always famous 5th Avenue is a half block away and leads to literally dozens of high quality shops and restaurants.

Built on the newest end of 5th avenue...you can stay close to home in the quiet neighborhood or you can venture your way towards the south end of 'Avenida Cinco' and enjoy 17 blocks of shops and restaurants. No need to rent a car from the airport...cabs from Cancun are frequent and convenient and cars in Playa are not needed...everything is in walking distance!!

At last count there were 17 restaurants within 2 blocks!!
