Four of us rented a condo through VRBO at The Elements during Easter Week. The condo's owner lives there most of the year, so it was beautifully decorated and maintained with comfy beds and a top-notch kitchen. We were on the ground floor so we could walk out the door and be in the gorgeous infinity pool in 20 steps.... More

This apartment complex is really great if you want to relax and be away from all the "quinta avenida" scene. The pool is large, very clean and nice. I really enjoyed the terrace with a pool and ocean view, very relaxing. The beach is only 20 meteres walking. Loved that!

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

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

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
