I recently visited Playa Caribe, Unit 7 in Akumal. I have stayed here several times and never get tired of it!!! #7 is well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The owner has obviously paid close attention to every detail! From the comfortable beds, to the incredibly soft towels, and the well equipped kitchen. Not to forget...

This owner has thought of everything. The kitchen is well stocked with all your needs to have a dinner party for 9! The view from the front deck is gorgeous. Listening to the waves crash up on shore is so refreshing... I don't know who decorated this place. You have to stay here! The colors and details are amazing. I...

My husband and I stayed at the Playa Caribe in the Casita Natasha and we had such a wonderful time! The staff were so friendly and accommodating and the Akumal area is peaceful and beautiful. This was our third time to the area and I would stay in the Casita again for the great value and the great staff. The...

This was our second stay at Playa Caribe in two years. It is very difficult to find any fault with the experience. Augustine and his staff are so friendly and accommodating. The casita was spotless and very well equipped. Bike rentals through the office are almost a must for your stay here. Now if Augustine could only learn to control...

We stayed in Condo #1 (ground level) for a few days and #7 (third level) for several days. Nicely furnished condos, very clean, roomy, each of the 2 bedrooms had their own bathroom. Well equipped kitchens, nice quality towels for shower and beach. Daily maid service. A big plus is their water is drinkable. Small refreshing clean pool too. Condo...

Unit 9 - nice location, nice interior and staff were welcoming and available. The unit is nice and well equipped. The downside is the derelict building next door blocking the view to the south. Very relaxing and quite. Akumal is a place I would visit once. We had fun snorkling and beach combing but got bored since the place is...

I’ve been coming to Akumal about once a year since 2005 and always stay at Playa Caribe. I’ve seen plenty of condos in other buildings and Playa Caribe feels like a cut above, between the beachside pool, the drinkable tap water, and the amazing staff. The location is pretty great. It’s smack in the middle of Half Moon Bay, so...

This is a small condo building right on Half Moon Bay. You can't not hear the ocean from everywhere in the unit. Gorgeous view, great music collection. Loved that there was no TV in the main area but there are 2-1 in each bedroom. Great to have champagne glasses. The staff here is amazing! They have been there forever-literally. Very...

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic week at Playa Caribe #6! The condo was beautiful and very well equipped. We loved drinking water straight from the filtered tap, having plush towels in each bathroom and the welcome basket with fruit and snacks. Although we only used the kitchen for breakfast and happy hour (fresh mango frozen margaritas!!!), there was...

Great place for a family vacation! Celebrated our 50th anniversary with our children and grandchildren at Playa Caribe renting three units which all are decorated so invitingly and so spacious but we especially liked #6. Lots of Mayan and Mexican decorations which were so fun and put you in a festive mood. One look and we were like "this is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Playa Caribe consists of twelve 2 bedroom condos and 3 studios. Generally regarded as the best on Halfmoon Bay. We have the only water treatment (RO) system that allows you to use and drink the water safely just like home. We have a pool and are centrally located to all that the Akumal area has to offer. Some of the best snorkeling is right off our beach. You will see turtles all year round right from our patio. Hope to see you soon in paradise. ... more   less
