About Ana Maria Flores Coulbourn
Hi! My name is Ana María Flores, Mexican born, having lived for 8 years in the US (wonderful state of Texas). We are now living in Monterrey, Mexico. I am part of a happy family of five, with a husband and three boys who need to have someplace to go for the summer and relax and use up their energy! Our dream came true when we bought this property and we are so excited to have guests enjoy it as much as we do. We have put a lot of thought into the penthouse and we hope you feel at home and even a bit pampered. We are big on choosing the best service available and have paired up with a vacation management that also values excellence and service. We sincerely hope this will be reflected in our home. We love to relax, put meat on the grill and also go out for people watching at night to the famous Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue) for a glass of wine or cold Mexican beer. During the day, our favourite activities include swimming in the Cenotes and discovering the many amazing beaches in the area. We are constantly looking for new experiences to enrich our children´s lives and this IS the real deal. Thank you for considering our property!
Ana Maria Flores Coulbourn purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Ana Maria Flores Coulbourn chose Zazil-ha
This area in particular means so much to us, since its beauty is so fresh and real. It´s full of jungle experiences and natural beauty, yet is close to necessities such as hospitals, the airport, shopping and fine restaurants. Every time we leave we are planning on our next vacation because really the possibilities are so varied and extensive. As Mexicans, we are so proud of our heritage, our natural resources, our food and people and want to share this with others.
What makes this Condo unique
We chose this property for several reasons, one being the fact that it is larger than other Penthouses, so we can comfortably fit our whole family in it! We made the kitchen larger by extending the granite bar and making it the center of attention. Since it is on the third floor, it is quieter than others. We are close to the action but just far enough away to feel like it is a haven from the hustle and bustle of the town center. We love that it has a convenient side entrance, easy parking and that The Elements has such great maintenance quality.

Excellent Property and Service
Our stay in PH 8 at The Elements was superb. The condo is immaculate, very nicely decorated, very large and 6 of us slept comfortably in it. The pictures posted couldn't be more accurate. The location is great and 2 blocks from the North end of 5th Ave. We took advantage of the shopping service provided prior to our arrival and it worked out great and saved us a couple hours and taxi fares to/from the market. They do charge a 20% fee for the shopping but well worth it. Ana Marie kept in close contact with us prior to our arrival and even called Lilian to make sure we were happy. AnaMarie was easy to communicate with. We also took advantage of the concierge service for some excursions. Lilian is an expert at her job and had the best prices around for anything. Great advice on restaurants, activities, beaches and tours. We rented a van and driver, Hymai (? spelling) for the day and visited multiple places in our 10 hour day. Housekeeping came in 2 times during our stay and they made the place look as we were walking in for the first time again. Although the water was high leaving little sandy area at the actual water, the beach was very nice. The hot tub off the master bedroom was nice as the pool/hot tub area closes at 10 p.m. so we used our own a few times. However, the cover was missing so it did have a difficult time heating up and staying hot. If you plan on using, it let the concierge know prior to your arrival and they'll turn it on prior to you arriving. I have nothing bad to say about the condo, services, environment, people or atmosphere. Everything was fantastic and I would recommend anyone stay here. Thank you AnaMarie and Lilian for a fantastic stay!
Thank you so much for your kind comments! We just bought a jacuzzi cover as per your suggestion. We hope you stay with us again in the future.
Best PH Place in Playa
This was our second time at PH8 and what we liked the most is the attention to details.....everything is though through, it has everything we expected.... The master bedroom mattress is AMAZING!!!! We had the privacy we always look for.
Definitely coming back
It is like having a beautiful home at a dream place! We simply had a Wonderful Time!
From the smallest detail; to all the confort you need, Ana María set the place so you don’t have to worry about indoors. If outdoor activities is what you are looking for, the concierge can arrange everything from a driver to a complete and great tour. Definitely you get the best for your time and travel because; besides being a beautiful place, it is well located in front of the beach, close to Restaurants, stores and the 5th. Av.; one of the most busiest places in town.
In addition; security at the place is impeccable and taken very seriously.
We relaxed ourselves visiting Chichén Itza and it’s awesome pyramids, we were able to taste Yucatan’s delicious food at Valladolid to finalize visiting Sian Ka’an’s Biosphere with its amazing natural scenarios and small Mayan Pyramids at Muyil.
There is so much to see, visit, taste and enjoy at the Riviera Maya that one trip is not enough so we look forward to return having in mind the best place to stay.
Beautiful place! Everything was exactly as we expected.
Great location and very nice property. Our family had a very nice stay.
Seaside luxury in the quiet end of Playa del Carmen
This was a friends' getaway, and Ana Maria's unit provided the perfect setting for us to enjoy our time together in Mexico.
Using a van service to get from Cancun airport to Elements (where three of the four friends have stayed before), we were delighted to see the unit matched the photos online. PH8 is decorated with beautiful contemporary furnishings and accessories both inside and out (I loved the Nicole Miller dishes!). With two balconies, one on each floor, you have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the views and the breeze, and to take time to relax. I keep coming back to Elements because of the beautiful pool -- bigger than most other pools in PDC. It is away from the crazier end of Fifth Avenue but still in walking distance to good restaurants. We enjoyed several of the restaurants recommended by the concierge, Lillian, who also offered suggestions for various excursions and tips on how to experience the Riviera Maya in a less commercial, touristy way.
Playa del Carmen offers a great jumping off point, and we spent days in Cozumel, Akumal, and Tulum while we were there. In addition to enjoying the pool and the beach, we also took a fellow vacationer's suggestion and spent a day at Grand Coral Beach Club, a couple of miles north of Elements (taxi was 180 pesos or thereabouts, as I recall, and you need to spend 200 pesos per person consumption which was easy to do -- we had late breakfast there, and a delicious lunch of shrimp ceviche chips and salsa. Try the lemon, mint and vodka -- it was the best drink I had all vacation!).
Our time in the condo was enjoyable. We were there during the Winter Olympics, so our nights included watching various events together on the TV in the living room. The two bedrooms on the main floor also have tvs, one which plays DVDs, and another that had Netflix and Apple TV. The hot tub on the rooftop terrace was especially inviting with the cooler, breezy nights we experienced.
The Elements staff work hard to keep the grounds and facilities spotless and well managed. One night when the neighbors were getting a little boisterous, we called the desk and the building security responded very quickly to solved the problem.
Ana Maria was quick to respond to any questions we had prior to the trip, and her unit really served our group well. With four women, it was nice to have three bathrooms to speed things along as we got ready for dinner. The beach towels provided were great too!
I’ve stayed a few times in this great condo but I chose to write a review now because it gets better and better each time.
Ana María is the perfect host, always making sure our requests are taken care of in a promptly manner, and fully responsible for making this place as beautiful and comfortable as possible.
The Elements property is superb, it’s beautiful swimming pool and inclusive beach make it a perfect destination even during the high season months, the grounds are impeccable and the staff could’t be more friendlier.
The condo is immaculate and much more spacious than the photos suggest, bedrooms are beautiful with very comfortable beds and showers, common areas are cozy and balconies are more intimate than surrounding condos.
We love cooking, so we find the kitchen fully equipped to cover all your meal preparation needs.
In all, PH 8 will make your Playa del Carmen experience a delight.
Thank you Ana María and Lillian for another splendid vacation.
