We've stayed in Akumal many times, and this year due to the low Canadian dollar, we were looking for more economical accomodations and happily found Playa Blanca casita #9 through Caribbean Fantasy. Although it's not directly on the beach, you can see the ocean from the casita and it's just a short walk down the path to the beach. The... More

Stayed at Playa Blanca #3 for 4 nights. Beautiful oceanfront condo with all amenities you need to enjoy your stay. Walk out your patio door and there was the beach and ocean! Condo very comfortable and well maintained.

We stayed at condo #7 which is a huge 3 bed/3 bath penthouse with a jacuzzi. The condo is really very spacious, well appointed and nicely decorated in Mayan style. It's located right on Half Moon Bay beach with a few coconut palm trees in front of it. The atmosphere is kinda lazy and quiet.. What almost ruined our stay... More

We rented directly from the owners. They were very responsive and full of good information. We even had a nice welcome letter and gift upon arrival. Pick up of keys and management service 2 minute walk up the road. You can find them on VRBO or ecobeachresort.com Unit #1 was very private. Empty lot next door so we only had... More

We stayed in Unit 8 with the attached apartment as well; plenty of space for everyone, amazing views, great location. We traveled with a young child and the beach was great as he doesn't care to swim in the ocean yet. We loved Chef Daveed, La Buena Vita (walk up the beach takes about 5 minutes), drinks at La Lunita... More

We stayed in unit #10. It was nice and clean and the grounds are well kept. The beach is just gorgeous and there were plenty of chairs and shade if you wanted it. The breezes off the ocean flowed through the room so that we didn't need to use the air conditioner. We bought simple items for breakfast and lunch... More

Casita # 9 (on the ground floor) was the perfect studio for our 8 day cenote and cave diving trip. The place is kept spotlessly clean, with fresh flowers on the table every day. The maid was so discreet we never actually saw her, but she did an impeccable job. From your bed you can actually open your eyes in... More

Penthouse unit #8 (found on VRBO.com/276236) was gorgeous. Right in the center of Half Moon Bay. It was bright, beautiful and breezy. Check in was easy, we stopped at the La Bahia office a few buildings to the north to pick up our keys and sign some paperwork. The condo was comfortable (if you don't plan to lounge on the... More

The upper unit of the Playa Blanca Casitas (room 10) in Akumal was extremely comfortable and homey. Between the fully furnished kitchen and the convenience to the beach, it's a great place to stay. It is very clean and the housekeeping staff is impeccable as far as keeping it up while you are there. Additionally, the grounds are maintained immaculately,... More

The family was thrilled, after roughing it for a while, to hold up here for several days. The unit was spacious , clean , quiet, and very comfortable. It was close to Tulum, which was a treasure ( ruins outlined by turquoise ocean).
