We stayed in unit EL104 from 10/19 thru 11/3. From the moment we arrived Miguel made our stay very comfortable. He was super attentive to our requests and even gave us his cell phone number to make communicating with him effortless. He was the epitome of professionalism. The unit was nicely appointed with comfortable furnishings and a wonderful balcony view.... More

We had an amazing 2 bedroom apartment for the price of a condo in a great location with great views and service. Miguel's hospitality made our stay even better. He gave us his cell phone number and we contacted regarding recommendations, tours, etc. and he catered to all our needs. It felt like we had a local friend in Playa... More

What a fabulous experience! This condo complex is clean, modern, and provides everything necessary for a comfortable stay. We loved the location: steps from the well maintained beach, but far enough away from other hotels that we were able to enjoy peace and quiet (ask for a condo that doesn't directly face the beach club next door). The walk to... More

I only... More

From the moment we arrived at The Elements until the moment we left everything was perfect. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor with direct access to the sparkling blue glass tiled pool. The apartment was beautifully decorated & appointed & much larger than was expected. The complex itself is maintained extremely well with the gardens... More

I loved my 5 night stay at The Elements. We hired a two bedroom apartment which was on the ground floor with direct access to the pool. The outside apartment furniture was great for having drinks and chats. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated. The pool size was large and was sparkling clean everyday.

The room was great, we got a room with ocean view. The hotel is few min walk from the 5th avenue, which is the most popular place in Playa, but is so quiet and peaceful inside the hotel.
