“Beautiful rooms, great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2010

We stayed in #5, and greatly enjoyed our entire time here (4 days). Comfortable, spacious rooms, but with nothing extra - just a gorgeous view of the ocean. The beds are a bit hard for us, but still comfortable enough. Service was outstanding, and the room came with everything we needed for cooking. The murals in the rooms were beautiful. Wi-fi is also available. They delivered a paper to our room every day as well. Plus, the bay was great for snorkeling and relaxing on the beach. I wish the immediate shore wasn't quite so rocky, but wet shoes take care of that. Maintenance and cleaning staff was top-notch. Parking is also happily available. Gorgeous building. I would happily stay here again. Akumal is wonderful for a nice sense of privacy and security, as well as great views. The sunrises every morning were spectacular.

Our family had a wonderful vacation at the Playa Blanca condominiums in Akumal. Our unit #3 was ground floor right on the beach only steps from beautiful Half Moon Bay. The water was great for snorkeling - we saw turtles, rays, many fish and beautiful coral only a short snorkle from our unit. Our kids loved to play in the sand just outside our condo, and we loved sitting on the patio enjoying the view and watching the kids play. The unit was clean and comfortable (the maids spent at least 2 hours a day cleaning our condo), and the high speed wireless internet was nice. It is not as "posh" as some of the area mega resorts, but the solitude, beauty of the beach and small town feel of Akumal were well worth what you may give up in terms of ammenities at those resorts.

We stayed in Playa Blanca last year for the first time, though we had been to Akumal for many years. I loved our condo unit. We stayed on the ground floor unit #3. It was great. Very clean. and the staff was great. The maintenance man (rakes the sand every morning, fixes anything you need) was great! He was so friendly and would greet my son and I every morning, since we were up before the sun to play on the beach. We were waiting for him. He also fixed our screen door after my other son tried to run through it! the cleaning ladies did a great job, would even wash our dishes. Though the staff does not always speak as much English as most of the other employees in the area, it was not an issue for me as I speak Spanish.

The beach is gorgeous in front. you could not ask for a better location. Great spot for families! Lots of stuff to do right out you front door! and even more to explore if you go off the beaten path!

Been going here for 13 years now, and I will continue to go forever!

  • Liked — The beachfront location and two seperate bedrooms with full kitchen!
  • Disliked — ...NOTHING!

I stayed at Playa Blanca condos in Akumal, Mexico for a week in June 2007. It was terriffic, stayed on the second floor, great view, great staff, no complaints. If you are looking for a low-key, ecologically friendly place to stay, this is the condo for you. The only downside was that it was further from the main area of Akumal than some of the other condos. Not a problem if you have rented a car or don't mind walking a short distance.

  • Liked — the view
  • Disliked — nothing comes to mind
