Playa Caribe truly exceeded all (four friends) our expectations! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the ocean front views from our extremely comfortable unit were breathtaking, and the location was ideal. The staff did an excellent job cleaning, not just making beds, but actually cleaning our room on a daily basis. The kitchen was well equipped (owner must like to... More

Our family (wife and I and two kids, ages 10 and 7) stayed at Playa Caribe from March 31 through April 6. The condo (#4) was very clean and centrally located. Most reviews of the place highlight the cleanliness and the water quality (drinkable!), so I will dispense with that. We liked the condo for its location. We walked to... More

We stayed over March break in condo 12. What a wonderful spot. Lovely Mexican decor. Spacious balcony, great view. Kitchen has absolutely everything you need. Big 2 bedroom unit with 2 bathroom and all the amenities even a first aid kit. So great to be able to drink the water. Half moon bay is lovely and shallow for beginning snorkelers,... More

Immaculate, beautifully appointed condo, with all necessary kitchen equipment, for cooking and food storage. They've thought of everything. One of the loveliest places we've stayed. Breezes gently blow through condo, little need for air conditioning, which is there if wanted. Private balcony which provides sunrise view and overlooks the bay. Bed was super comfortable, with plenty of pillows. We slept... More

We stayed in Playa Caribe 8 from 1-11 February. Like the people who stayed in the unit just before us, we had problems with the A/C. The morning after we arrived we went into the kitchen to find water leaking all over the counters. We didn't know if it was something from the people above us, or if it was... More

Three girlfriends and I just got back from a "girls week" in #6 at Playa Caribe (Feb 3-10). The unit was pretty much perfect: spacious, clean, air-conditioning worked great, beds comfortable, plenty of hot water in the showers and good pressure, the kitchen extremely well-equipped - everything we had been led to expect through reading reviews beforehand. The staff was... More

The location is great you can walk anywhere, but going with my brother and sister in law who don't like to walk we rented a golf cart, I must say... More

I extend my apologies for not been able to restore the service sooner. The hot spot components come directly from the United States. We replaced the faulty part as soon as we got it and now we keep a spare one in stock. Should you give us another chance, I´m sure our reservations department can offer you something special to...

We stayed in Unit 8 for 2 weeks, Jan 18-Feb 1. We were 2 couples and this unit was spacious enough for us to feel comfortable and uncrowded. It was very well laid out and the bedrooms and bathrooms were a very nice size. We loved the sunken showers and the small decks off of each bedroom. One bedroom has... More
