About
Description
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) More 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! Less

This condo is beautiful, as are the grounds and the staff is wonderful. I would stay here again but the noise level from the street is very annoying. Many guests said it didn’t bother them but I could never really ‘chill’ by the pool. The...More

We do not have a gym at our small and charming boutique property. But we do have many nearby and we offer an excellent list of "favorites" including yoga studios.

Yes, the pool does receive sun with periods of shade in parts of the garden from the two huge royal palms. It's beautiful. We also have a rooftop terrace upgrade with full sun all day!
