Arrived with my sister after a very hectic whirlwind New York visit beforehand and really needing some rest & relaxation.
We got into our condo and all the energy returned. Quality throughout and very clean we turned on the fans to clear out the himidity and were refreshed and energised in no time. We changed and took a walk down 5 Ave. then hit the pool on our return. And this was to become our daily routine at the end of each day before heading out again to explore the restaurants for dinner.
Manuelle the security guard welcomed us every evening on our return which was a lovely touch. He doesn't speak English but still we were able to communicate and he is very likeable.
Whenever we saw some of the caretakers of the condos they were warm and friendly and do a very fine job!
Heaps better than a hotel stay and I will be returning as soon as I can with my son so he can experience the amazing place that is Playa del Carmen and Arena Blanca Condos!
Highly recommend this fantastic condo!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Because of its classic architecture and impeccable construction, Arena Blanca is known by the locals, as "the beautiful building". The building has a gorgeous two-bedroom condo (with a spectacular rooftop terrace) and numerous charming one-bedroom poolside condos. Arena Blanca is known for its great design, maintenance, and staff. From the iron gates to the arched stairways to the brick-ceilings (known as "bovedas"), Arena Blanca has many traditional Mexican elements. And together with modern elements, they create a very comfortable and beautiful vacation property. We are proud of the special care and attention to detail found in the building, thanks to the skill of the local builders. The difference is noticeable...And the location? Es perfecto! Arena Blanca is ground zero for many of Playa's favorite restaurants including La Cueva del Chango. And it's just a few minute walk to the quaint area known as "Little Italy" and a ten minute walk to the touristy center of Playa del Carmen. Close enough but far enough away! The short walk to the Caribbean via Calle 38 is one of the most beautiful walks in town... past the gardens of our favorite restaurant, La Cueva del Chango, and the charming beach front palapas hotels. We love being so close to Mamitas Beach, a diverse and colorful beach that provides the best people-watching in Playa. Rent an umbrella, pop open a cerveza, and enjoy the view of the beach and beach-goers... it’s a feast for the eyes. You just might think you’ve died and gone to heaven, right here on earth! ... more less
