Loved everything about our stay at the Elements. We stayed at one of the penthouses and it was PERFECT! Our two story penthouse had 3 bedrooms and 3 full size restrooms. It had two balcony with the perfect view and we definitely loved having our own hot tub. We loved having a full size kitchen, which we totally used. The...

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 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. The condos are everything we wanted them to be, and if you wanted the ocean views, they are beautiful. As thankful as we are staying in these particular condos, we have found the...

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...

I stayed at the Elements condominium Jan 12-15, 2017 and had a terrific experience. This was my 3rd time staying here and I will certainly return. The staff is great and extremely friendly and attentive. The condominium has a private beach which is a rarity in Playa Del Carmen. There is a 7-11 store steps from the street to pickup...

We just stayed in Elements suite # 210. I agree with others that Miguel, the BRIC rep is incredibly helpful - giving great restaurant suggestions and making himself available to all questions. Elements overall is a well maintained condo with really nice pool and lounge area. Our suite did have a nice patio facing the ocean and pool. The condo...

Dear reddyn, We too have mixed feelings after reeding your review, but for the most part, we are disheartened to hear that your stay wasn't nearly as exceptional as it should have been. There is no excuse for loud music at all hours of the night and we will be sure this matter is brought up at the next Home...

We just returned from a stay during the week of December 19-25th in unit 219. We were very pleased with the condominium complex as well as the high level of service and greeting we received from Miguel.

There's a lot written about Elements. But Miguel from BRIC deserves 10 stars. Nothing is too much for him. Great restaurants recommended, places of interest, bookings made for whatever, and not all for commercial gain. Miguel must be the best host, concierge, organiser and manager of guests needs that I have met. And Elements is good. Definitely apartment dependent for...

The Elements is a very well-located modern sleek condo with resort style feel. The grounds, pool, landscaping and overall facilities are nice. Each unit is independently owned and where the unit is located makes a big difference. Our Penthouse corner unit had a double gulf beachfront exposure with a great private terrace complete with bar and jacuzzi. Now for the...

We don't like the all-inclusive resorts in Mexico. This gives you a great option. We eat in your condo breakfast and lunch and go out for dinner every night. Fifth Avenue is about three blocks away. Go to Esmeralda market down the street to pick up fruits and vegetables. 7 Eleven across the street now sells beer which is great....
