This is a small condo building right on Half Moon Bay. You can't not hear the ocean from everywhere in the unit. Gorgeous view, great music collection. Loved that there was no TV in the main area but there are 2-1 in each bedroom. Great to have champagne glasses. The staff here is amazing! They have been there forever-literally. Very... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic week at Playa Caribe #6! The condo was beautiful and very well equipped. We loved drinking water straight from the filtered tap, having plush towels in each bathroom and the welcome basket with fruit and snacks. Although we only used the kitchen for breakfast and happy hour (fresh mango frozen margaritas!!!), there was... More

Great place for a family vacation! Celebrated our 50th anniversary with our children and grandchildren at Playa Caribe renting three units which all are decorated so invitingly and so spacious but we especially liked #6. Lots of Mayan and Mexican decorations which were so fun and put you in a festive mood. One look and we were like "this is... More

This was my second stay at Playa Caribe, and my girlfriends first and we were both completely satisfied. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and kind, Augustin at the front desk was always happy to help. The Casita itself was very comfortable... More

Very happy with our first casita rental. From the time we arrived until we left, our ten day stay. We loved the location on half moon bay. We are fairly new to snorkeling, so had the option of Akumal beach or the bay. Augustin, the manager was always very helpful and polite. Casita Annette had a welcome basket when we... More

Awesome accommodations;our family of 6 stayed beach side and we had a great time. Turtle nest up and down the beach reminded us that we were not the only occupants staying there. At night we were alerted to turtles hatching on the beach! My 6 year old got to help baby turtle into the ocean and what a memory! Every... More

This was our second stay in Playa Caribe #11. The condo is very comfortable, beautifully decorated, and exquisitely clean. Even on a rainy day, we were perfectly content there. And the view from the 4th floor is well worth climbing the stairs for. The Playa Caribe staff is altogether excellent. The grounds keeping staff worked tirelessly to clear sargassum from... More

This was our second trip to the amazing town of Akumal and we stayed at Playa Caribe in unit 12. This unit is on the top floor and is very comfortable. The building has great staff that help with everything. This unit has great amenities and is decorated with a fun Mexican flair. We had the best time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Playa Caribe consists of twelve 2 bedroom condos and 3 studios. Generally regarded as the best on Halfmoon Bay. We have the only water treatment (RO) system that allows you to use and drink the water safely just like home. We have a pool and are centrally located to all that the Akumal area has to offer. Some of the best snorkeling is right off our beach. You will see turtles all year round right from our patio. Hope to see you soon in paradise. ... more   less
