Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Come share our slice of heaven on earth at Playa del Carmen!

Arena Blanca is located within walking distance of everything you need & we think it's the most beautiful condo complex in Playa. The locals call it 'the beautiful building'. The classic Spanish architecture, brick-lined rotunda ceilings, tile floors, marble counters & shower speak 'quality'.

Forget the rental car while you're in Playa!! We're located on Calle 38 Norte between 5th & 10th at the newer - quieter end of Playa. It's just a few minutes walk to great beaches, shopping & dining on 5th Ave., 2 modern grocery stores & several smaller markets. Ask us about the local Mexican and Italian restaurants right around the corner. We’ll give you recommendations, if you like!

We have two units for rent - across the hall from each other. We chose second-floor condos for the view & a little privacy! Built in 2006 it's an 11-unit gated, secure complex. Best part is not having a lot of people around! It's a great place!

The private pool has an island palapas for shade. There's access to a roof-top terrace to sunbathe or watch the sun rise & set over Playa del Carmen & the Caribbean.

It's a well-maintained complex with full-time maintenance and gardening.

Our prices INCLUDE all fees (no booking/service fees!), bottled water and wireless internet.

The manager speaks fluent English & Spanish and is available to meet any of your needs (tours, rental cars, spa treatments, catering medical issues, airport transfers) or questions.

Exercise options - besides running on the beach & walking 5th Ave! It's a 5-minute walk to the outdoor city sports center that features a track for running, stairs for climbing and basketball hoops for a quick game of B-ball. You can even take in a soccer game at night. A fitness center is just across the street too.

About Lisa

Tom & Lisa - Gary & Shari

Lisa purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lisa chose Playa del Carmen

Playa is a very unique vacation destination. We found the international mix of visitors created an up-scale happening place! And the beach is BEAUTIFUL!

What makes this condo unique

What we like most about Playa & our condo at Arena Blanca is that we don't need a car while we're there! We can walk to most everyhing, take a cab or the local bus when necessary!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at Arena Blanca. It was our first visit to Playa del Carmen. We were glad we were on the northern end of 5th Ave. It is much more quiet, but still close enough to all the resturants and very close to the beach. The condo was perfect and we felt very safe there with a guard at the gate everynight. Our favorite place to eat was just a block down 38th del Norte-- El Cuavo del Changa (The Monkey's Cave). We ate many meals there and everything was fabulous!

Quiet, Relaxing, Home Away From Home...

  • 5 of 5
Excellent place to stay. Very clean and well maintained. Arena Blanca is steps away from the busy 5th Ave. Its on the northern quieter side of town. If you want to come relax and stay away from all the noise, this is the place to stay.

There is an Oxxo (like a 7/11) right across the street for quick snacks, water or over the counter medicine. Clubs and bars are just a walk away. The beach is a block away. The famous Mamitas Beach Club is about a 10 minute walk. I rented two beach layout chairs and a palapa for $9USD. They also have staff to take food and drinks out to the beach.

Places I recommend to eat... (all on 5th Avenue)
La Parilla, La Vagabunda, La Cueva del Chango, Bip Bip.

Short cab ride - La Mission (Mexican Food), and El Fogon (Outstanding Tacos)

Recommended Tours
You must go to Tulum and Akumal Beach (awesome snorkeling).
Visit Chichenitza and Xcaret.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This is our 3rd time visiting Arena Blanca and Playa Del Carmen and we can imagine staying anywhere else! This place is perfect and the manager and staff are so kind and helpful. The beach is close by as well and all the great restaurants on 5th Ave. I would highly recommend this place to any one. There is a reason all the reviews have 5 stars - it is a wonderful place to stay!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have never been to playa del carmen, nor have we rented a condo. As a result of our experience, we would recommend a condo in Playa del Carmen all the way. This condo especially!!. Very well taken care of, very clean, very NEW and updated finishes. The pictures are great, but the condo is even more breath-taking in person. The staff were all extremely friendly. My husband was fond of the security gentleman. He was extremely professional and kind! It felt like home. We loved the location. We felt very safe and comfortable everywhere.

It was REALLY nice to be away from all of the noise from 5th, but to be so close within walking distance!! We cannot thank you enough for such a beautiful vacation spot. We enjoyed the walk to the beach multiple times a day, seriously within a 5 minute walk. We loved the variety of the restaurants, but it is very difficult to choose as all look amazing. We were very fond of the Mexican and Italian cuisine!

As for an outing/adventure, we would recommend Akumal, Ya Kul Lagoon ($12 per person, but TOTALLY worth it) and Half Moon Bay. All 3 spots are within a 2 mile stretch of each other, a really nice walk actually. We saw sea turtles and a ray in Akumal and beautiful fish at Ya Kul Lagoon. We would recommend this condo to any one of our friends and family. Playa del Carmen is a great place for a Mexico vacation.

The best of Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5
We are long time travelers to Playa del Carmen, approximately 10 visits in the last 9 years. There is no better place to stay in this lovely town than Arena Blanca. The condo is far enough away from the crowds at the beach and on 5th Avenue to be restful and quiet, but close enough to both; and the coolest part of Playa is now around 38th Street the location of AB. The grounds are lovely and immaculate, the service staff is helpful and friendly. The condo is nicely appointed and equipped and everything from the CD, DVD and A/C works beautifully. You will love it.

Notes:
Arena Blanca is the most beautiful condos complex in Playa. As you walk through the hand-wrought iron gates to enter the private courtyard of these condos, you'll agree it an idyllic setting. Classic Spanish architecture, conscientious space planning and a fun Mexican feel makes these some of the nicest condos in Playa del Carmen. You'll be able to tell the difference in quality from the handmade cabinets to the lighted brick-lined rotunda ceilings. We do not walk out to the pool, but rather overlook it so you can choose to be a part of the happenings at the pool or you can choose a little privacy. Our location on Calle Treinta y Ocho (38th Street) and Avenida Diez (10th Avenue) is perfectly located on the quieter end of Playa. Just a few minutes walk to great restaurants and bars along Fifth Avenue. We are just around the corner from charming, local authentic Mexican, Italian, Argentinian restaurants.
