  • Perfect stay!

    "Our family vacationed at beautiful Arena Blanca and we all had a wonderful time. It was so nice to relax on the second floor outdoor patio or sit in the rooftop pool. We even had two of our daughters sleep outside on the lounge bed, loving every minute! Everything that we needed was right there in our condo and I could see just spending the entire time there, but it is so close to great restaurants, coffee shops and the beach too. We felt very safe walking during the day and the evening, we couldn't have asked for a better location. Everything went very smoothly and their staff were all kind and helpful too. I would not hesitate to recommend Arena Blanca for a wonderful and relaxing vacation destination!"

  • Excellent condo in ideal location!

    "Thank you, Perry for the use of your condo! We really enjoyed the location. The rooftop pool is AMAZING! The view from the rooftop deck is great. And literally just steps from the sand. The beach was a little rough on most days, but we really enjoyed walking along the beach everyday. The condo had everything we needed, with exception of a toaster! We would recommend adding one. But more importantly, the shower head really needs to be replaced. The spray goes everywhere. I am short, and could not get myself positioned under it. And I was not able to rinse the shampoo out of my hair. Had to get my husband to bring me pitchers of warm water from the kitchen. The maid service twice during the stay was good. The unit was well appointed and had plenty of room for only the 2 of us. Nice and quiet area. Thank you, Thank you!"

  • We could LIVE here!

    "This condo is spotless, and though it's only a studio it has all the amenities. I'd forgotten my hair dryer, but found one in the bathroom. If you can't find it, just call the manager, who graciously answers questions and gives advice. Since this was our first stay in Playa del Carmen we had no expectations or ideas of the best things to do, and restaurants to choose. The condo has a binder from the owners with helpful ideas, there are some great maps available, and a book with notes from previous guests. We loved strolling Fifth Avenue (with its persuasive hawkers at nearly every shop and kiosk) with its many shops, stopping for coffee or gelato, and picking up fruit, pastry, and drinks at the mini-mart and bakery on Fifth Avenue near the condo. There are too many restaurants to recommend, but one of the condo's maps has helpful reviews of restaurants. Our favorites include El Fogon, Lido on the beach (where we sat for hours in lounge chairs enjoying a few cold beers while watching the water activities), La Cueva de Chango (garden setting), Chez Celine, and a little place that looks like it just opened called The White Bar that offered a Taco and Beer early evening special. We had no bad experiences with any restaurants so you can't really go wrong. We took the ferry to Cozumel for a day and had a four hour tour with a taxi driver who showed us some highlights along the coast. We also spent a day traveling to Tulum and Coba to explore the Mayan ruins. We'd highly recommend both of these for a day trip. We stopped at Akumel Beach but it was too late in the day to snorkel in pursuit of turtles, but several people we met said it was their best outing of their trips. The weather, by local standards, was cold (mid-70's) but the water was warm and we only had one evening of light rain. Overall, if you have decided to visit Playa - and you should! - this is a perfect place for a couple who isn't looking for room service."
