Playa del Carmen, Yucatan Peninsula
Condo Castillo de Arena (Condo Sand Castle) boats breath taking views of the Caribbean Ocean. Located in The Elements Condos, it is just across the street from Coco Beach. Entering the well-manicured complex, take the elevator up one floor to reach this stunning Playa del Carmen condo.

The condo is laid out with an open floor plan, so as you walk through the front door you can see the kitchen, dining room, living room and terrace. It lends the rental a very spacious and inviting feeling. The owner is an artist and has adorned several walls with her hand-made stained glass.

As you walk in the front door, situated to the left is the guest bedroom with 2 twin beds and en-suite full bathroom. Straight ahead from the front door lies the full kitchen and separate laundry room with washer and dryer. After the kitchen lies the dining room wit...

The property is well maintained. There is a beach club nearby but the music was always stopped by 10pm. The support staff was very friend. NASPlaya did a good job with our excursions.

We have stayed in this unit for the last 4 years. Every year but one we have had issues with things in the condo. Usually it is air conditioning. This year we checked in and there was no coffee maker. Then we found out the air didn't work in the back bedroom. Later in the week the shower head broke...

Management response:

Thank you for your feedback. The main issue we had with this guest was the transportation. Because of these issues we are now only transporting guests from the Cancun Airport to our rental properties and back. Our drivers know Playa del Carmen well and the Cancun Airport - they are not so familiar with other cities and other complexes. This...

We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful 10-day stay in this unit at The Elements -- and in this beautifully serene area of Playa Del Carmen! The unit is located on the second floor at the southern front of the high-rise condo structure and has a wonderful view of both the beach and the swimming pool from the balcony....
