Playa Caribe condos are fabulously well-equipped, furnishings unique and comfortable. The layout of each unit is slightly different. Our family of 19 was well housed in 5 units. The staff was attentive, caring and delightful.

We loved the Playa Caribe. Perfect location to everything. Room was very clean. Staff was super accommodating. I would recommend you bring sugar, salt and pepper as ours did not have any. Not sure if the other condos came with it. I think it depends on the owner of the unit. The cookware was really outdated and could used replacing.... More

We (my husband, 13 year old son and I) have just returned from an amazing vacation in Akumal, Mexico. We stayed at Playa Caribe in Condo #6. Myrna, the owner, was wonderful to deal with from start to finish. She promptly and thoroughly answered all of our many questions both pre-and post-booking, sent us a packet of helpful information, and... More

Tips......rent a golf cart, order groceries online ahead of time (riveria maya), go to akumal bay really early in the morning, yal kul bay is good for snorkeling, bring water shoes - rocky @ half moon, bring biodegrade...

This condominium complex is definitely a luxury stay. Well appointed condominium with a choice of renting it as a one or two bedroom (suspect one only in low season when there is less of a demand). Within walking distance of some nice restaurants as well as to Yal-ku lagoon and Akumal Bay. Snorkeling off shore is good but my wife... More

Greeted with key upon arrival. On site manager and bike rental. Well appointed kitchen. Fresh fruit and coffee greeting us as well. Clean, comfortable beds. Perfect location for watching spotted rays from the deck while lounging in the afternoon. Snorkle right from our beach, beach shoes required. Three amazing restaurants within walking distance, bring a small flash light. Pool great... More

We stayed for 5 nights during Sept. I cannot rave enough about our apartment and Akumal. The apartment was beautifully decorated, very spacious and included everything you could possible need. The view was fantastic and the balcony spacious and comfortable. We didnt use the airconditioning at night because we just loved to leave the doors open and drift off to... More

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... More
