This penthouse is simply spectacular! For our guests, it's love at first sight! The penthouse is huge, wonderfully decorated with beautiful furnishings and artwork, and conveniently located in a great, safe neighborhood, close to the beach, with some of Playa's favorite restaurants including the famous La Cueva del Chango. With thirteen foot ceilings, marble floors, handmade cabinets, the living room, dining room, and kitchen are connected seamlessly into one “great room”. We love the gorgeous handmade latilla cabinets made by the best cabinetmaker in the Yucatan. And the emperador marble on the countertops was chosen because it resembles the shells of the Caribbean tortugas. The living room features a large lounging and seating area adjacent to a huge terrace that overlooks Calle 3...This penthouse is simply spectacular! For our guests, it's love at first sight! The penthouse is huge, wonderfully decorated with beautiful furnishings and artwork, and conveniently located in a great, safe neighborhood, close to the beach, with some of Playa's favorite restaurants including the famous La Cueva del Chango. With thirteen foot ceilings, marble floors, handmade cabinets, the living room, dining room, and kitchen are connected seamlessly into one “great room”. We love the gorgeous handmade latilla cabinets made by the best cabinetmaker in the Yucatan. And the emperador marble on the countertops was chosen because it resembles the shells of the Caribbean tortugas. The living room features a large lounging and seating area adjacent to a huge terrace that overlooks Calle 38th with views of the best sunsets in Playa. The master suite features a brick boveda ceiling and a queen-sized wicker bed that resembles a wing-back chair, and a large bathroom with double sinks and a huge shower. The guest room has a king-sized bed with a private full bathroom. To provide extra sleeping space, we added a sleeping loft with a queen-sized bed accesses via ladder. This has low headroom so password for children and teens. And agile adults! The coup de grace is a large shaded rooftop terrace that overlooks the city of Playa del Carmen with views of Cozumel Island. Hot in the day with cool breezes at night, the terrace provides a nice private space to read, sleep, and renew your love for life or your love life, or both. As the developers, we have taken great pride in the design, construction, and maintenance of the property. Arena Blanca has a very personal feel that is much more intimate than a large condo building or hotel. It has a beautiful swimming pool with lounge chairs, palm trees, LOTS of flowers, and a shaded palapa for drinking or working with computer. The entire property is gated with nighttime security. Our management motto is 'clean and green'! Arena Blanca is in a wonderful neighborhood on Via 38th between 5th & 10th in the newer North End of Playa. It's a couple minute walk to Shangri-la and Mamitas beach on Calle 38th, along a landscaped boulevard... and a leisurely ten minute stroll down 5th Avenue to the busy Centro. There are many excellent restaurants, shops, and yoga studios within a few minutes walk of Arena Blanca. More

We LOVED our stay at Arena Blanca. The staff made traveling with a baby super helpful by arranging a vehicle from the airport, and making sure the Pack'n'Play was set up in the room. We were able to store our stroller on the ground floor....More
