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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Casita Natasha for 6 nights and it couldn't have been better! This was my second stay at Playa Caribe, and my girlfriends first and we were both completely satisfied.

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
