I made my reservation at The Elements and shortly after I received a email from Lillian. She helped us make transportation arrangements from Cancun to Playa Del Carmen. She also told us if we had any other questions or need any other help just to let her know. The minute we walked out of the Cancun airport HineyLou our driver...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 December 2016

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...

I stayed in the Elements with 5 other friends for a "girls weekend" together. We really enjoyed the condo as our home for the long weekend. The space is very clean, bright, open, and spacious. The photos are actually not as beautiful as the reality. it's a great beach condo for vacation. We hired 2 chefs to come and prepare...

We stayed in Penthouse 6 at The Elements, and it was perfect for three couples. Each had our own bedroom and bathroom, there were two patios, one with a hot tub. The pool was clean and refreshing, but not heated. We enjoyed the beach club with the snack, drink bar and massages. The ladies who gave the massages were excellent...

Dear Sharon B, To receive thoughtful commentary like yours is very welcomed as it allows us to gain perspective from the guests' point of view and see the areas where we can improve on. Although the views are still heavenly from the condos, unfortunately the beach can take its toll when the seaweed decides to roll in. We're happy you...

My wife and I are here in playa del Carmen for a five week stay. We would recommend The Elements to anyone planning their next trip here.

We stayed at the elements for three nights recently and it was gorgeous and peaceful, a little off the beaten path and right in front of the beach (private beach!) The front desk and Miguel were very accommodating. The only thing I would change would be the snack selection at the beach bar - and maybe more service down there...
