11 family members in 3x different apartments stayed for 8 nights at the Elements. Nice sized 2x bedroom apartments, with reasonable kitchen, and laundry in each. The pool is the hub, and a nice area to read/chat/refresh. There is also a beach with a private (Elements guests) area and sheltered Canopy's from the sun, but Playa appears to have a... More

If nothing else our stay here was probably a lesson in what happens when you ignore Tripadvisor. TA had this property ranked as 147 out of 200 properties in Playa del Carmen despite being a relatively new and modern building, and that was probably being generous. We had hoped for a quiet relaxing stay but the property is effectively a... More

Just returned from our second time staying at The Elements and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves once again. A quiet, low key place with terrific views and a short walk into the hustle and bustle (such as it is) into Playa del Carmen. Pool and beach are super relaxing. We rented through Bric Management and they have on site Concierge service. Ivonne... More

We are currently staying at the Elements in one of the beachfront condos. As I write this review on one of our two spacious decks at 8 am, I'm watching the daily beehive of activity that is the maintenance, cleaning and landscaping staff. They're cleaning, polishing and watering...everything, as they do everyday. The location for us could not be better,... More

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!

The complex was beautiful. Pool was outstanding ! We had a ground unit, G18. The unit was very nice and our bedroom was huge! There was not a lot to cook with but that was alright with me. While we were there the washer broke..it was fixed that day. The coffee pot broke and they had a new one the... More
