This is our second time at Arena Blanca. The condo was perfect for us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2nd stay at arena Blanca. The property is well maintained
and property manager and grounds keeper went out of there way to help us.
This serene little property is close to everything that you need and the beach is only five minutes away. Loved our stay!
Beautiful condo in a beautiful location
loved every minute! The condo was perfect,in the best location! The condo had everything....we loved it! We also enjoyed meeting others that were stayi g at Arenas Blancas. Nadia was the best! We would definitely return!
Charming, comfy and clean. Great staff!
My husband and I stayed in Judy’s condo for 12 nights, to escape the cold Canadian winter. The condo is lovely and well cared for by local manager, Nadia, by the maid (whose name we never heard), maintenance man, Isaias, and the nighttime security guard, Manuel.
We had a few bumps at the beginning but the owner, Judy and her staff tried quickly to fix the issues. Unbeknownst to the owner, the clothes washer wasn’t working, which was an inconvenience. We had packed lightly, thinking that we’d be able to do our laundry as needed. Realizing that it couldn’t be repaired while we were there, Nadia and Judy were creative with looking after the problem. Not an ideal solution, but it worked.
Having 1 1/2 bathrooms was what we were looking for; not easy to find in a one-bedroom unit.
Judy was usually quite responsive and passed along messages to Nadia, when necessary. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the opportunity to actually meet Judy when she was there.
The condo is on a busy street, with several bars and restaurants nearby, but we never found it too noisy and never felt unsafe while we were there. Mid-stay cleaning was nicely done, and appreciated.
If you plan to do any amount of meal prep, you might want to take measuring spoons/cups, vegetable peeler, and grater for cheese or vegetables, folding bowl for salad or mixing ingredients, dishcloth . . .
Our biggest problem while we were there, was the unreliability of the internet. We weren’t given the password until our 2nd day. We were relying on that to communicate with our family back home.
Unfortunately, my 88 year old mother (in Canada) was taken to hospital by ambulance, 2 days after we arrived in Playa. I was trying to assess the situation, and determine if we needed to return home.
Another Canadian guest contacted Nadia on a Mexican holiday, to get the password for us. We eventually connected, but it only worked if you were in front of the balcony door, or actually on the balcony. The owner, Judy, said that it was because we were in a concrete building however, if there was a router or booster in the unit, the problem would be solved. We went to another family member’s condo, about a 3 minute walk away, to use their wi-fi. They were on the 3rd floor of a concrete building, with great wi-fi, so we were able to monitor the situation at home. That was our biggest disappointment while there.
All in all, it was a relaxing vacation. We would consider staying here again.
Thanks, Lauri and Brock, for staying with us and for your review!
I will use your list to restock the kitchen items you found lacking. Guests certainly don't need to bring measuring tablespoons or food graters, lol!
I did stay in the same poolside condo you were in and found the internet to be working perfectly with a 20gb download. (It slows down in the bedroom due to the concrete walls.) My hunch is that you were most likely not connected to the closest network; as we have four at Arena Blanca. I will speak with Nadia to make sure that is more clear for future guests.
Wishing you a happy spring!
Judy and Jay
Beautiful Arena Blanca
We stayed in Arena Blanca January 5 to February 2 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was in a great location being close to fifth avenue, a short walk to restaurants, the beach and grocery shopping. The grounds are very visually appealing with all the flowers and the pool and kept spotless by Isiah who was always there to help with any issues that you had . Being completely gated with a security guard at night you always felt safe. Nadia and Judy were always quick to respond if you had questions or problems. Our fridge stopped working after 3 weeks but was promptly repaired. We had maid service once a week and she did an excellent job of keeping the place spotless. We are looking forward to our return stay at Arena Blanca!
The property was nice and well maintained. The condo is well furnished and very comfortable. The staff is great. The location is good, it's very accessible to the beach and 5th Avenue.
amassing and unforgettable
this is an amassing place to relax and enjoy. great service from management and employees, comfortable and clean like new,and everything is to a walking distance so need to rent a car. But if you decide to rent one they will bring it to your door step. I can not wait to to go back to Arena blanca's .
