      The Playa Caribe condos are absolutely beautiful. It really was as beautiful as the pictures on the website. The beach is perfect for swimming, relaxing and the snorkeling in Half Moon Bay is amazing. There are beautiful corral gardens, lots of fish, turtles and some days eagle rays. Sitting on the balcony watching the turtles heads was a treat. The location is great, a short 15 minute walk to central Akumal. The restaurants and bars near by offer great food at good prices.

      The view, cleanliness (of condo, beach and town area), decor, comfort, superb staff, location, all pleased us tremendously. It would have been nice to have use of laundry – perhaps advance arrangements with the owners, a larger deposit and extra fee might have worked that out? If you want nightclubs and discos this isn’t the place. But if you want a zillion stars, gorgeous scenery, quiet restaurants that you can walk to and a great scuba/snorkel reef at your feet, this is it!

      We had absolutely no problems. Steps to the pool. Steps to the beach. A short swim to snorkeling. A short walk to two restaurants. Loved the architecture and interior design. The bowl of fresh fruit was a very pleasant surprise and made us feel we had chosen the right place immediately. We were on the 4th floor and did not mind the stairs, but elderly persons and some others may want to stay on lower floors (no elevator).

      We had an awesome vacation in Akumal, Mexico. When we arrived at the Playa Caribe we walked upstairs to our condo #8 I was floored. We had the best view of the entire Halfmoon Bay. Our balcony was extremly large (lounge chair and patio set). We spent hours reading from our balcony and watching the sea turtles swimming in the ocean. We snorkeled every day (we had the bay practically to ourselves). We are taking our kids back next year for a family vacation.

      We stayed in PC #5. This condo has everything you need! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook and prepare your own meals. I loved how the dining room table was set so elegantly! The view from the balcony is unbelievable. You will have a hard time sleeping past 6:30 am knowing what a beautiful sunrise you will miss. There are plenty of books, music CDs and even flashlights with red filters for night time turtle watching. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners who are very nice and made sure we were happy. Looking forward to our next visit.

      My wife, a friend and I stayed in #5 from August 1-8, 2012. We could not have been happier with our choice of Playa Caribe. This condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen has everything from corkscrews to margarita glasses. There are plenty of books and even a fish ID book to help you identify all the cool fish you will see snorkeling in Half Moon Bay or diving in any of the beautiful nearby reefs. There are binoculars, a flashlight with a red filter for night time walks on the beach and watching turtles lay eggs and eggs hatch. Did I mention turtle nests? The first night a nest hatched 20 feet from our pool! We loved rising early to watch the sun rise from the balcony while drinking a coffee. The location is ideal if you are a diver. There is a dive shop only about a 5 minute walk away, and of course there is a great beach bar also close by. The pool was clean and felt great after a days diving. We loved lounging in the water chatting with the other guests and condo owners, who by the way or very friendly and helpful!

      We had another incredible stay at Playa Caribe. This time in No. 12. This really is the best condo building on Half Moon Bay. It may cost a little more but once you walk through that entrance and see the place any doubts about it will quickly fade away. We had one of our best trips ever to Akumal. Need supplies? Midway Foods is right across the road. Everything is within walking distance but if you rent a golf cart the staff is more than willing to help you plug it in over night to charge. Oh, yes. We will stay here again for sure.

      We stayed in condo #7 for a week in March. Beautiful views; great decor; wonderful home base for enjoying all the area has to offer. We relaxed on the beach; snorkeled in the bay; and throughly enjoyed our stay. Augustine is a wonderful on-site manager; all the staff was friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well equipped. Good value for the money. Highly recommended.

      I can’t recommend this property enough. It was perfect for us and our small wedding of 17 people. The staff was very accomodating with everything, the condos were lovely, and the location was perfect. We liked having our own section of beach, but close enough to Akumal Bay to head over in a golf cart or bike if we wanted. Had a great time!

      When we first walked into our unit, we felt like we were on a movie set! The property was beautiful and well decorated with local art and bright festive colors. Our rental was well provisioned with plenty of pots, pans, and dishes, and towels and soap – everything to make it a home away from home. The main service was exceptional – they came in everyday to remake the beds and straighten up – this wasn’t expected. The surroundings were so safe and everyone very friendly. The traveler’s guide in the unit was helpful with an overview of the staff, area, and recommendations for restaurants. I hope to visit again soon and I know where we will the staying, the Playa Caribe Condominiums!

      This is the fourth time we’ve been to Akumal, but the first time we’ve stayed at Playa Caribe and it was great. The location is right in the middle of Half Moon Bay, so not too far from town and not to far from Yal Ku and a very easy walk to places to eat like La Beuna Vida, La Lunita, and Gynn Ak. Although the A/C was out the first day, it was okay since it rained and kept everything cool – the A/C was fixed the next morning. The wi-fi could have been better, but we were on vacation, so who really needs wi-fi? The rooms were big and clean, but the showers in the bathroom were hard to control the temp and the spray. Also, the second bedroom had a funny little window out to the atrium that was thin stained glass and you could hear EVERYTHING at night when people were coming and going. We received a fruit and snacks basket when we arrived, which was a nice touch! This particular unit has a small sandy area in front of the patio, so if you didn’t want to take those extra 5 steps to get sand in between your toes, you could hang out there. Plenty of palapa shade for when we wanted to hang out at the beach and watch the multitude of turtles swimming around. Also, really great that you can drink the water straight from the tap and not have to buy bottled. For the price we paid, this was such a great value! Can’t wait to go again!

      We stayed in #5, and the views from the balcony are stunning. The condo is well-equipped, spotlessly clean and perfectly located on the beach. We love the fact that the tap water is safe to drink. The staff is outstanding; friendly, resourceful and always happy to help make our stay more pleasant and comfortable. During our stay, we were fortunate to have seen two turtle nests hatching as well as a baby turtle release, which was truly a special experience. We can’t wait to return.

      We had a wonderful time in condo #11. The view was fantastic looking over the half moon bay. We had our balcony door open all night so we could hear the sound of the breaking waves. Paradise as we dreamed. The condo was absolutely great, kitchen facility’s was great also. The night guard also came to our room to tell us that turtles were ready to hatch and make their first steps off towards the sea.. WONDERFUL. The snorkelling to the left side of the bay was the best I’ve done so far. I will return to this condo complex again….defiantly! Condo 8,11 and 12 have the best views in my opinion but they all have their own unique decor to a great standard.

      We were greeted upon arrival at Playa Caribe by the building manager and were told to go straight to the condo and we would do the check in the next day, which was appreciated since we had a long day of travel. Upon entering the condo you have a beautiful view of the ocean! The gallery is the perfect place to watch the sunrise each morning. The condo itself is well laid out and very functional. The kitchen is fine with almost everything you could possibly need to cook. The beach is narrow but very nice. To enter the water it is very rocky!!! Be careful and wear water shoes. The bay is not very deep and the snorkelling was quite good. Saw turtles, rays and many different fish. It is quite an effort to get to some of the reefs as the currents can be strong when it is very windy. This is a place I would come back to….really enjoyed my time there with my family.

      I visited Akumal once or twice a year for 15 years and always stayed at a private casa. We now returned to Akumal after a long hiatus and with 3 grandchildren, ages 14, 14 & 12. In spite of rumors to the contrary, Akumal has not become Disneyland and remains almost unchanged, as Papa Bush would have wanted it. Playa Caribe was perfect. We had everything we needed and, even better, met nearly everyone staying there — a very interesting group from all over the North as far as Calgary, Canada. We had a ground floor unit right next to the pool. This posed no problem in terms of noise and made socializing easy. We were totally delighted with our week and the help of manager, Augustino. Would like more information on similar places in other parts of the world. Thank you all!!

      We enjoyed 5 night here. Views from every room are awesome. Even standing in the shower you can see the ocean. Staff is great. Pool overlooks the bay / beach. Only 1/2 of the 12 units had guests in them. Unit is close walking distance to several places to eat. Bay is ni e to snorkle in as well. We would return here again. Only complaint we had was walking up / down 4 flights of stairs several times a day. Of course it made us realize how out of shape we are.

      We have stayed in Playa Caribe before, but not this particular unit. It was not as nicely furnished as the previous unit we stay in, it was quite a bit smaller, and the kitchen was far less equipped in terms of spices, etc. There was a leak in the kitchen ceiling while we were there, and we had to be moved to another unit for a night so they could fix the a/c unit. The condo management was very helpful during this time. The daily maid service was very good. The balcony of this unit had a stupendous, panoramic view!

      had a great time @ playa caribe. Our condo was great. This is our second time in this condo. Agustin took care of any questions and Patricia kept our place clean and cosy. Alfredo and Luis take a lot of care with the outside of the property. I noticed a lot more kids this time… so a little bit more crying etc. Also some people thought this was an all inclusive and would leave their towels on the chairs even if they didn’t use the chairs. I use the hour rule. If nobody uses a chair for an hour – I will use it and put the other towel back when I leave. Great time in Akumal

      We spent one week listening to the ocean surf. The design of the condo at Playa Caribe allows for maximum ventilation. We never had to use the AC. The condo was incredibly stocked, not just with every imaginable cooking utensil, but all of them were in good condition and very clean. In addition there were basic goods, like spices, paper towels, dish soap, etc. – items which are often not provided in house rentals. The view was incredible and we found corral reefs right off the beach. We would love to return some day.

      We really enjoyed our 10 night stay at Playa Caribe Condominiums! The condo was lovely, fabulous view, friendly, helpful, staff. It is our second time back to Half Moon Bay, however our first time at Playa Caribe. It was great to have nice water pressure in the showers and drinkable water out of the tap, as the Condo has it’s own water purification RO system. This is the most relaxing place on the planet! We enjoyed the fabulous food every day at Turtle Cafe and La Buena Vida. We snorkeled twice at Ya-Kul Lagoon (awesome), twice in Half Moon Bay, and five times at Akumal Beach. We took a collectivo to Casa Ceynote, but that wasn’t really worth the trip. Unfortunately, a large family came in on our 5th day and occupied all three lower units. They took over the pool area, leaving their food and belongings everywhere as if it were their private pool. They were loud which forced us to have to close our screen slider doors to shut out the noise, and unfortunately, the sound of the ocean. That was a little bit of a drag, but we dealt with it. Luckily we brought a sound machine to drown out their partying at night. I only wish that the quiet hours of after 10pm had been enforced.

      This condo is wonderfully decorated and stocked with all essentials and the onsite staff is great. It was a bit longer walk than we wanted in the heat into Akumal town and Akumal Bay but we had rented a car and used it daily, so the distance did not bother us. We loved the peace and quiet and sea turtle activity of Half Moon Bay.

      Fantastic experience at Playa Caribe. Supremely good location that feels private but not too remote, and the onsite management is friendly, helpful, fast and they act as a concierge in calling cabs and making reservations. We met some of the owners and they added new decor our week there, always maintaining the property. We witnessed turtles laying eggs and two nests hatching, the babies scrambling into the ocean. Marine biologists protected the darkness and offered us background. Amazing.

      We absolutely loved our time in Akumal, and Playa Caribe was the perfect place to stay. Our unit, 11, has gorgeous panoramic views of half moon bay. The unit is beautifully decorated, and our housekeeper, Patricia, kept the unit spotless. The security guard, Jose, came and alerted us when there was any turtle activity on the beach, so we got to see two nests hatch and a 200-lb loggerhead laying eggs. So amazing!!! We had friends in units 3, 9 & 10, and I can safely say there’s not a bad unit at Playa Caribe. Highly recommend!

      Good things come to those who wait, and we waited an entire year to arrive back in Akumal! First go around we stayed at an all inclusive which was not to my liking to be honest. Happy to have met the owners of Playa Caribe #4 on the dive boat and knew their place would be worth coming back to dive another birthday with friends. First, the view – spectacular! Second, location, location, location! Third, the condo itself! From the fruit basket, notes from the staff, instructions for everything, fully stocked kitchen and my favorite Patty the housekeeper 🙂 Loved coming home each and everyday to a beautiful place that felt like home, to be honest a week came and went and we did not want to leave 🙁 I recommend renting a golf cart for the week like we did, makes it fun to drive to the arch for groceries or in my case going to the Turtle Bay Cafe for flan everyday! Also have bikes to ride, good exercise if you ride to and from town. I cannot say enough great things about this property and it’s owners – worth a trip to Akumal!

Drifting off to sleep every night with the soft sounds of the ocean was just magic. The apartment is plenty big enough and so nicely furnished, and the views were to die for. Every morning we would head 5mins down the road and swim with the sea turtles, what an amazing experience. I couldn’t imagine anyone not loving this place and Akumal

      This was our 2nd stay in this unit — so glad we went back. We love the decor in #6, it”s just…perfect. The condo is well-equipped and everything worked. The staff were extremely pleasant and professional — our housekeeper did a great job. The security guard helped us plug in our rented golf cart at night and we felt very safe knowing he was patrolling the property. The pool was meticulously cleaned every morning, fresh towels were abundant and easily exchanged, the resident iguanas were entertaining, the beach was raked and cleared of seaweed daily (as much as they could) and while we were there, the staff even spent a whole day digging up and removing an old foundation on the beach that had caused some stubbed toes. The other guests were friendly and laid-back and it was quiet at night. Wi-fi a little spotty at times, but definitely better than last year; they”ve obviously been addressing client concerns. No problems at all, though I will mention a somewhat less-than-perfect abundance of hot-water during prime shower-time right before dinner and…well…ya” just gotta plan better for that. Snorkeling off the beach was awesome. A little challenging to get in and out of the water, but totally worth the effort, tons of fish and turtles and you pretty much have it to yourself – no thrashing tourists. Love this place, we”re already planning to go back next year!

      Playa Caribe Condo #12 was beautiful. Our family enjoyed the entire experience. Beautiful beach, beautiful place and the community felt safe and it was a nice walk to restaurants and other amenities.I would highly recommend it.

      Playa Caribe #12 through Locogringo was an excellent experience. The condo was just as shown in the photos and the owners even had a welcome basket upon our arrival. Augustin and all the staff were friendly and attentive. Our view was spectacular! I travelled as a mother with 3 adult daughters ages 18-23, rented a car, went to ruins and felt very safe especially all around Playa Caribe. Filtered water was a bonus as well. Downside? Sometimes the air conditoning seemed to struggle and, nothing anyone could do, but we happened to be there after a strom out at sea brought mounds of unappealing seagrass to all the beaches. Something someone said they had not seen in ten years of vacationing there. Would definitley return and recommend Playa Caribe unit 12 and Locogringo.

      We were a group of two couples. The accommodations were perfect. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need and the pots, pans, dishes, serving pieces matched and were like new. Each bedroom had a private balcony, plenty of storage and a very nice bathroom. The on-site pool was wonderful as were the beach palapas, plenty of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas and chairs. Patty was friendly and did a great job of keeping our place clean and tidy. the onsite manager was pleasant and very helpful. As we got ready to leave we unanimously agreed that on our next trip we will stay here again. It was simply wonderful. The pictures are as accurate as you can get but I would say the place was better in person. Great views and of course you can hear the ocean at all times.
