“PH10 The Elements”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

Just returned from a 2 week stay at The Elements PH10. The accommodation was first class with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large very well equipped living kitchen area and laundry room. The view from the balcony was spectacular over the large pool to the private beach. The pool, like the fitness suite, was cleaned daily and the building was well maintained. I believe The Elements are the best located condos in Playa.

After doing my research when planning my trip we chose Elements. I would definitely recommend it. The furniture is new, flat screen tv’s, the kitchen is fully equipped. It is not far from 5th Ave also close to the local grocery store Mega which is cheaper then Wal-Mart. We loved all the people that worked there very friendly. We went for the 4 of July week and we had a great time. It was so close to Xcaret and Xplor like a 10 min drive. Definitely recommend going to both parks. The beach was great you can actually go swimming not like in Cancun. We stayed in Cancun the last 2 days of our trip but could never go swimming since the red flag was always up. In Playa del Carmen the waves are not strong so you can actually enjoy the beach. I loved getting the messages they offer there in Elements which is really cheap just $30 or 35 not sure but really nice ladies. If you do decide to get a message I recommend you go reserve the time you want to go before. I would recommend Elements any time and will stay there on my next trip.

Room Tip: We stayed in the second floor which was really nice but the first floor might be better since you ca...

This was the second time my wife and I have stayed in this immaculate unit. Flat screen tv's, HBO, juice maker. This is one of the few condos at the Elements that has sliding screen doors and a balcony off each bedroom. With the ocean breeze we could open the doors all day and night, leave the AC off, listen to the waves and smell the fresh air.
Damien and BRIC took good care of us. Como Como on 5th Ave. and 40th street is the best an only a 5 minute walk from the condo. You must have a reservation because it is popular every night and it has maybe 15 tables. Wide selection on the menu and great prices on wine. Damien will help get you the reservations. Get a 90 minute massage at the Elements beach club for about $25-30. Nice ladies who give a great massage under a canopy and the ocean breeze. When not on the beach we spendt a lot of time on the condo balcony. It is nicely furnished and has great views. Maybe it was the drinks but 2-3 hours every evening was how we spendt the time after the beach and before we went out for dinner. Hamburgers at Fogon across from Como Como were also a nice suprise.

Room Tip: Have only tried 219

We are a couple with one child a year and a half. We rented a penthouse apartment for six weeks from early January. When we arrived, we asked that we make a grocery store. It was made but it was not ours. There was a mixture between two condos. Damien, however, the concierge was quick to go do one. The service is very good with him. Those who replaces him when he is on leave does not do much.

In terms of cleanliness, the site is very well maintained. Regarding the condo, even if it is almost new, maintains the interior is poor. In our bathroom, he began having ay moisisure the ceiling and painting began to be worn.

The pool is very clean and cleaned daily. The private beach also. However it lacks oversight for the beach and pool. People from outside enjoy the sun and pool. Nobody expelled.

The beach is beautiful but there is a strong odor of sewage. We were told there was a problem with the sewer pipes that go into the sea That does not taste to swim ...

In terms of tranquility, a place is fairly quiet. But the condos are not well soundproofed, so you hear exactly what is happening in the bedroom of your neighbors ....

Three times in six weeks we have advised the neighbors down he was doing too much noise. Six young people had rented a vacation condo and celebrated until 5:00 am ....

In summary this is a great place for those with children. The pool and private beach was a plus. But it is a place that will not go very nice time. The owner of the condos do not seem to care for the inside to maintain that they are beautiful ....

If you are looking for a nice beach hotel with an incredible pool, then you should consider the Elements. It is an easy 10 minute walk to the official start of 5th Av. You can reach it either by the beach or walking up to 5th av and down the street. This hotel is in the north end of 5th Ave.
The Cuban Grill has authentic Cuban music. The Mayan restaurant down the street was very good. 5th Av. restaurants can be very spendy so be careful on prices. The drink prices are the ones to spot. Another good place was Robert Gray's resturant.

Room Tip: craigslist but negotiate
