This is my Playa home. The place is quiet, secure, and close to all amenities in the area. It has a private pool and has only 7 units so it's never really crowded. The units are always clean and the staff super friendly! These units will accommodate families or couples as they have a full bedroom and a hide a... More

Beautiful Condos, great location, close to beach and right on the upscale 5th Ave shopping and dining scene. Wonderful courtyard and pool area. Not many units so very private. Excellent friendly staff.we can't wait to go back. A real value. My whole family enjoyed it

Arena Blanca is situated in the newest part of Playa where new restaurants and stores have recently opened. It is not yet overcrowed in that area making it less noisy and making it a little more personal than the main area of Playa. I loved the checking in as they send both the gate and room combination code by email,... More

Have never had a chance to rate this place but stayed here over the Christmas holidays. Had a huge apartment with not one but TWO different balconies with a hot tub right at the top! The property and pool were well maintained, with a very friendly security guard to watch over the property throughout the night. Between the modern décor,... More

My husband and I stayed in the two bedroom penthouse condo for our honeymoon. It was truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. So clean, impeccably decorated, with modern amenities, beautiful architecture and such a warm environment. We were provided with a great list of suggested activities and restaurants in the area-all of which were amazing.... More

We stayed here for ten days and loved it! The condo was very nice. Modern decor and spacious enough for three of us. We were on the ground floor directly next to the pool. It was perfect for our 5 year old! The pool area and entire complex was beautiful. Well maintained. When housekeeping cleaned for us, they did an... More

We stayed here for 8 nights in December in Unit 2 and could't recommend it more. Location: the best! Love the upcoming more authentic vibe of this end of 5th ave. You are walking distance to all but really found ourselves dining, juicing, doing yoga, drinking coffee and enjoying this section of playa. Service: Was fantastic. Reservations were easy, timely...

The grounds are very well kept and the staff is friendly and helpful. We found the street to be a bit noisy and on weekends we... More
