Stayed at Elements with my wife and two children, we booked through Bric vacation rentals - which really was the best of both worlds, concierge service with a 2 bedroom condo & kitchen. The location is great, Miguel from Bric does a wonderful job giving you local tips for food or excursions, and Edgar's margaritas are a nice addition. I...

My husband and I shared 5 amazing nights at "El Presidente" penthouse 1. We were planning on having a few more people staying with us but it ended up just being us. We had panoramic views of the ocean from our unit. It has to be the best unit in the complex. In the mornings we would have our coffee...

Four of us stayed at the Elements for a week vacation. The suite was in great shape. We loved having coffee on the porch looking at the ocean every morning. Free parking.

Stay here for 5 days. Property beautiful. Room and size beautiful. The negative. Room 112 smelled like sewage, we complained several times before they sent some one to fix it... After the 3rd day the smell came back. Also the maid only cleaned the room one time. We had to wash out own towels.

We rented a 2br condo for a week and really enjoyed it. The condo was clean and modern, the furnishings were wonderful. The Elements is a wonderful contemporary design which is centered around a large pool. The beach area was slightly disappointing. It's small and the seaweed seemed to build up in this area. The location is great, a five...

This hotel looks nice and spacious and there are some nice parts, but please do NOT stay here or in the area, at all.
