I don't know where to start when talking about Madjid... he's about the friendliest innkeeper and most personally invested in your comfort and happiness as anyone anywhere. Huge smile every time we saw him. He puts together a fine breakfast at the cafe downstairs, and he had some phenomenal restaurant recommendations as well (Olivia, Rolandi's, and Velasquez all quite tasty).... More

Quiet, clean, and just plain perfect! Majid is a sweetheart. This place was right in the middle of everything. It's close to the beach, Hidalgo, and the main strip near the ferry terminal. They also serve a great breakfast!

The room is nicely decorated,the air conditioner works great, ceiling fans keep the room cool even without the air conditioning, the bed was very comfortable and it was really clean and welcoming.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Absolute lovely place with great breakfast. The owner Madjid is very nice and has great tips for the island and on restaurants. He speaks english. A/C and very quiet. 100% perfect. Make sure to check out "Lolita's" near the hotel for smoothies, smoothie bowls and food.

Our stay here at Elements was wonderful. The staff were all excellent. The owner was so accommodating, we were wanting some limes for our Corona and mentioned it to Majdid, he said to give him a minute and came back with a handful of limes for us. Our housekeeping was great. Our room was always cleaned when we came back... More

We had a delightful four night stay at Elements. The accommodation is simple, clean, very comfortable and in a great locaiton. We had delicious breakfasts at the adjoining cafe and enjoyed a very peaceful rooftop yoga class. All the staff were exceedingly friendly and ready to help with anything. Would definitely recommend.

This guesthouse is perfectly located in the center of town, and you will notice it's charm from the minute you walk in! It's definitely an apartment, with its cute little kitchen area with microwave and refrigerator. The space is roomy and very comfortable!
