We are a family of 5 with 3 kids under 11 and we would recommend this place if you are looking for a comfortable place for your family. This is a unique resort given its location (quiet but also walking distance to a lot of fun places like restaurants and more) and its big pool and beach access. There is...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

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...

My friends and I booked our trip about two months in advance and everything went perfectly! The management company, Seaway, made it extremely easy for us with quick responses before our stay and making sure we had everything we needed while at The Elements.

7 of us stayed in penthouse 8 from VRBO in February 2017. Incredible ocean view from the master suite! Very spacious (2 balconies, 3 bathrooms, jacuzzi, lots of space) and comfortable. Elements is very close to the beach (across the street) and has a private beach access. The pool is amazing and right in the center of the property. Very...

We rented our unit through BRIC which I have never done in the past and was so happy we did. Using BRIC made the process easy and gave us access to Miguel, Brenda and the rest of the great staff at The Elements. We stayed in PH 23 for the month of March. We had family and friends coming in...

Great location! They keep the place very clean and safe. The beach area is very nice although you can't swim right there. It's only a short walk right or left for a nice swimmable beach. It's so close to fifth avenue, that was a plus. My only complain will be the sewer smell outside the building by the beach. Overall,...
