We rented a third floor condo for a 10 night stay from the condo's owner, not the condotel. The condo owner offered to move us to a different location since the elevator had only worked 1 1/2 days out of 3 at the being of our stay. We declined since we figured the elevator would eventually be fixed. WRONG. It...

This resort is wonderful! The individual units are spacious and well equipped. The location is excellent because it's quiet and peaceful but still walking distance to the famous 5th Ave and a ton of restaurants. Miguel at the front desk was very accommodating and had great restaurant suggestions. Edgar out at the beach bar makes great drinks and the beach...

It was my first time visiting Mexico with my fiancee and his younger brother. It was his younger brother's first time out of Canada! We found the condo's atmosphere to have a little bit for everyone from party to family environments. The bartenders Edgar and Alan in the private beach club (which btw is the only beach club that rakes...

Property was very nice and comfortable with all the amenities a family or couple could ask for. The community is relaxing and relatively quite but in a great location with a few restaurants and other beach clubs next door and all along the beach. Only a short walk to the main street of Playa del Carmen with tons of bars,...

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids under 11 and we would recommend this place if you are looking for a comfortable place for your family. This is a unique resort given its location (quiet but also walking distance to a lot of fun places like restaurants and more) and its big pool and beach access. There is...

My friends and I booked our trip about two months in advance and everything went perfectly! The management company, Seaway, made it extremely easy for us with quick responses before our stay and making sure we had everything we needed while at The Elements.

7 of us stayed in penthouse 8 from VRBO in February 2017. Incredible ocean view from the master suite! Very spacious (2 balconies, 3 bathrooms, jacuzzi, lots of space) and comfortable.

We rented our unit through BRIC which I have never done in the past and was so happy we did. Using BRIC made the process easy and gave us access to Miguel, Brenda and the rest of the great staff at The Elements. We stayed in PH 23 for the month of March. We had family and friends coming in...

Great location! They keep the place very clean and safe. The beach area is very nice although you can't swim right there. It's only a short walk right or left for a nice swimmable beach. It's so close to fifth avenue, that was a plus. My only complain will be the sewer smell outside the building by the beach. Overall,...
