MORE INFO: Picking the right condo from a website can be scary! So you will pat yourself on the back when you see these beautiful condos at Arena Blanca, close to the beach AND Fifth Avenue. But far enough from the night clubs to get a GREAT night's sleep!

We designed our condos to easily accommodate four people, with built-in mahogany cabinets and two bathrooms. Our customers have raved about the beauty and convenience we created for them. But if you need two-bedrooms, look at our spectacular penthouse at VRBO # 114396

Our poolside condos are tastefully and tropically decorated, with views of the gorgeous tiled pool and gardens. You'll love the peace and quiet of the garden level including the lovely small garden terrace off the master bedroom. Linen drapes and top down/bottom up cellular shades provide privacy as needed. Guests can upgrade to use of our private ROOFTOP TERRACE, with a romantic shade palapa, jacuzzi, lounging/dining/ sleeping furniture, and lovely views of the Caribbean and the city of Playa.

Arena Blanca is perfectly situated in the newer North End of Playa, a few steps to the quaint shops and restaurants of 'Little Italy' on Fifth Avenue. We are centrally located without being smack dab in the touristy (noisy) downtown.

And the beaches?! Arena Blanca is on 38th St, the landscaped gateway to the famous Shangri-la and Mamitas Beaches (200 yds away). Tall, tan, young, and handsome, you'll find the most beautiful beach-goers in the Mayan Riviera here.

Arena Blanca has full-time management and staff; our motto is Clean & Green. You will see the difference! And our prices INCLUDE bottled water, wireless internet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Came to Playa with my husband and 10 month-old son. We were in search of a place that had the comforts of home, especially with a baby--so kitchen and laundry were key. This place was just about perfect! We loved the layout and the design of the space. Lots of room, closets, towel racks, etc. The bathroom was an added surprise. It has two sinks and toilets flanking a shower area. Each is divided by a sliding door. So two or more people have plenty of room and privacy. We opted to also rent out the terrace and it was fabulous! Our son loved the plunge pool and the waterfall! It was a great space to hangout--day or night. The staff was all fantastic and always helpful when we needed something. Felt like we got the privacy and quiet time we wanted, yet help was just a short distance away if needed. Speaking of distance--it was the perfect location. Walked to everything, yet at the quiet north end of town. When we wanted to get to the other end right away, say for breakfast, we just took a $2 taxi and were there within a few minutes. Nothing bad to say here. Just come and stay! You won't regret it! Thanks, Judy!!!

A honeymoon we will NEVER forget

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here and stayed for one week for our belated honeymoon and we will never forget it. It was seven days and nights of absolute bliss. We stayed in the roof-top suite and just loved every second. The staff was very kind and the location is ideal for anyone that likes conveinience and things that are cool. Great dining, easy to buy stuff to make meals, the beach is a five minute walk away, and the location makes it so if you wanna keep it low key you may, and if you wanna get wild, fun is just blocks away. So sad we must leave but we will be back!
