Stayed here for 1 week in a ground floor apartment off airbnb. The apartment was just as in the pictures, nice and spacious with good air con. The kitchen had basic amenities but no kettle so bring one if you're a tea drinker. Decent sized bedrooms & 2 bathrooms with great showers making it ideal for 4 adults. The complex... More

We stayed here for 10 days and rented 3 condos for the family. The Penthouse , 1st floor and a Garden unit. In terms of units, the Garden unit was the best,. Near the pool and being on the ground level was very nice. BUT not one of the three units had an operating dishwasher! All 3 broken and not... More

Garden House 1 is an amazing location in Playa Del Carmen located on Coco Beach and a short 3 minute walk to 5th Ave. Our apartment was located the closest to the pool and the beach and the patio was amazing to sit and have coffee and watch the kids at the pool during the day. Comforts of home with... More

We rented a condo here for the first time for a complete month! Being our fourth visit to PDC, we opted for a bigger condo with 2 rooms so my daughter, husband and 2 year old could join us for the first 2 weeks. We have been renting a condo on 38th street for the last 3 years... so happy... More

My husband, daughter (22yrs), and I stayed here for 5 nights. We were in Playa del Carmen for a total of 11 days. The first 6 were at a place on the beach in the middle of Playa del Carmen right off 5th Ave. The Elements was a nice break from the activity of downtown. As several reviewers said it... More

My partner and I just returned from a week long trip to Playa Del Carmen. We rented a 2 BR 2 Bath unit on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and with a view of the ocean. The condo was very clean and the furnishings were overall comfortable with the exception of the beds that are like a dormitory mattress.... More

We chose a condo instead of the ubiquitous all-inclusive because we wanted to try as many of the excellent restaurants nearby as possible without feeling we had wasted the prepaid meals at the all-inclusive. The Elements was lovely. Our two-bedroom apartment was spacious and well appointed. A gorgeous balcony faced the beautiful pool and the sea across a little lane.... More

I stayed here with friends we had to 2 bedroom rooms each. Both designed differently and very spacious with all the amenities of home. Pool is nice and private secured beach area right there. Also a lively bar next door. Overall I recommend it if a secluded resort is not your thing. We could walk to the 5th st area... More

We stayed here last year in May and our room was fantastic. Not so this time. We had 108 which is right beside the lobby and a downgrade from 115 from last year. No coffee maker, no internet, noisy balcony with the lobby right beside your balcony, no corkscrew... In other words not top of the line which we expected.... More
