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.

PERFECT condo #9, better than an all-inclusive, would rent again We have always stayed at all-inclusive resorts in our previous visits to the area. We are very glad we tried out a condo this time. Playa Caribe is located right about the middle of Half Moon Bay which makes it a fairly equal trek to Yalku or to Akumal Bay. The reservation process was very smooth. Unit (#9) accommodated our family of four very comfortably. The condo was spotless and beautifully furnished. Our balcony overlooked the pool and the gorgeous ocean, but it was never noisy, and it was great to have a pool to cool off in. Glad we chose to stay at a condo that had one, since many of the others nearby did not. We walked down to Akumal Bay every morning for breakfast before the tour groups took over, and are happy to report that the reef and the turtles seem to be surviving okay, as we saw all sorts of sea life. Lots of stunning coral and shells, and some fish. We were able to find loungers and palapas every day. It was very comfortable to be on the beach, away from people. We arrived from Mérida, so didn't have a chance to stop at a supermarket before heading to Akumal. There was a basket of goodies waiting for us (chips, salsa, popcorn, cookies, etc) and we easily found Midway Market-- right across the main street. I would rent here again in a heartbeat. We don't think we'll ever return to an All Inclusive) again-- Playa Caribe #9 was exactly what we wanted!

Playa Caribe #9 was beautiful with its fantastic ocean view, beautiful eclectic decor, and complete kitchen. There was no sargassum and the water was calm and flat. We watched 88 baby turtles hatch and run into the ocean one night just outside the condo! Although we bought some groceries from the tiny store across the street, we ate out for most of our meals except breakfast at the great local restaurants - we love Turtle Bay Cafe since they have healthy food that every one of my picky children loves. We did all the activities in Shari’s (the owner’s) Guide she sent us before we left and they were exciting - especially the denote she recommended that was natural and private -- and much nicer than Xplor. Patty the maid was wonderful and kept it so clean. We hope to come back soon.

We just spent 7 days at Playa Caribe #9 with our family of 4. From the time we booked our stay, the owner, Shari, was incredibly responsive and helpful. She provided a wealth of information to ensure that our trip was enjoyable and proactively provided answers to common questions. Upon arrival, we found the staff to be incredibly helpful and friendly. We discovered the original unit we booked had an issue with the air conditioning and they offered us an alternative condo (also owned by the same owner) to ensure we were comfortable. The condo was beautifully appointed and clean. The location was perfect, within walking distance to many restaurants. The only downfall we had during our visit was the sargassum, making the beach and water directly in front of the condo unusable. In spite of that, we found many other places to enjoy the beaches and would definitely return again. Thank you Shari and the team at Playa Carible for a lovely vacation.

Stayed in #7. This is our second visit. First trip was couples and this trip was our family, includes 2 boys age 10 & 13. #7 has been perfect for our needs both times. Our view is spectacular (jungle from balcony on one side, ocean on the other) and the unit is perfectly comfortable. The beds are great, linens are comfy and well supplied. Our boys loved the pool and spent tons of time there, and we sat enjoying the shade and the view. We love having such wonderful staff! Agustin has never failed to suggest the perfect outing for whatever our needs are. We love having the kitchen or breakfasts, cold drinks and evening snacks, we ate at the local eateries otherwise. #7s owners think of everything! Even a cooler for your day trips!

We stayed at Playa Caribe in February and were immediately overwhelmed by the amazing view from the living room. We loved having breakfast on the balcony! The flat was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Unfortunately, we were unable to swim in the sea as there was a lot of seaweed and although they made a big effort to clean the beach, it did not help. We loved dining at the beach in the restaurant 'Buena Vida'... and making a lot of amazing trips in the area. Shari was really helful: I had forgotten my new (and really nice) bag in the wardrobe. Shari immediately organised for it to be collected and made the effort of finding out the best way to send it back to the U.K. She even took it to the U.S. as this was the 'safer' alternative and sent it from there. The bag was delivered yesterday, I am really glad and thankfull for all her efforts. THANK YOU SHARI !!! I would definitely come back!
