Why Myrna Sparks chose Akumal
We had been looking for an oceanfront condo in other parts of Mexico when we discovered the charming village of Akumal, Half Moon Bay and Playa Caribe condos. We looked at every condo on Half Moon Bay when we decided to buy a condo and knew from the moment we opened the door to our condo that this was the one. The first view of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean when you walk into our condo from floor to ceiling windows are unforgettable. We walked out to the large patio overlooking the sea and could not believe our good luck in finding such a beautiful place. We have filled our condo with colorful, original and local art, high quality fabrics, furnishings, linens and have had a lot of fun over the years finding each special item. We have a staff that is fabulous and have been with Playa Caribe for many years. They are trustworthy and take responsibility for the happiness of our guests who stay with us..
What makes this Condo unique
Playa Caribe has the reputation of the very best condo building in Akumal for many reasons. These include: *PURIFIED WATER FROM THE TAP--Playa Caribe is the ONLY condo building in Akumal that has the reverse osmosis water system so that you can brush your teeth, drink water from the tap, make ice cubes and not worry a bit that you will be sick. This is a huge reason we bought our condo at Playa Caribe. *We have a swimming pool for our guests and we are one of a few condo buildings with a swimming pool. *Our condo is furnished with the highest quality of linens, dishes, handwoven bedspreads, Tommy Bahama fabrics on the couches and local, original artwork. We bring all linens from the U.S. to make sure they are of the highest quality possible. *Our incredible staff to help our guests with anything they need, 24 hour security---our night watchman is there from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and can help at night with anything needed. Agustin is our reception manager and can make any reservations you may need. *Daily maid service is included in your nightly rate. Our maid, Patty, has been with us for many years and is trustworthy and helpful in every way. We do not require an additional cleaning deposit. *Private parking is included in your cost. We own the parking lot across from the condo so that our guests always have plenty of parking available. This is not true of many of the condo buildings. *Playa Caribe is located in the center of Half Moon Bay and it is an easy 5 minute walk to the south to La Buena Vida or an easy 5 minute walk to the north to La Lunita Restaurant. There is a small market across the street from Playa Caribe..

We had a wonderful stay at the Playa Caribe and fell in love with the little town of Akumal
Before arriving we were provided a detailed list of what to expect and a great list of attractions and restaurants to visit during our stay from Myrna. It was helpful and took away the guess work.
We arrived to beautifully decorated condo with an amazing view of the ocean. The condo provided everything we needed during our stay.
The front office helped us with any transportation we needed but had to wait a little while for a response.
There was plenty of room for the four of us I would highly recommend this condo and can't wait to go back!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return soon.
The condo is gorgeous and the people were very helpful and pleasant
Newer condo in great condition- nice view of ocean- hood restaurants nearby- lagoon is still spectacular although very crowded.
Perfect spot. Beautiful condo, aesthetically and well supplied with everything we needed.
Everything was thumbs up but for the occasionally music from next door that wafted to our serene porch experience and children and other talkative guests by the pool sometimes louder than we’d like. But we would happily go back.
Host Myrna couldn’t have been more helpful- most helpful and attentive as we prepared to go . Akumal’s half moon bay is a gem of perfect read walk snorkel eat at Buena vida two mi utes down the beach or La Lunita for a little fancier. The Cenote five minute walk away is dreamy.
Thank you so much, Marian, for your review. Playa Caribe on Half Moon Bay in Akumal is a very special "piece of paradise" and we look forward to welcoming you and your sisters back again.
Beautiful condo with the best view. There was even a welcome basket waiting for us.
Lovely condo! Staff was great. Highly recommend renting this place. We will be back.
Thank you, Sarah, for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed our condo at Playa Caribe. Come back soon!
Wonderful condo in a quiet Akumal setting
Our family of 4 had a great stay in Playa Caribe 6 the week of May 19-26th. The condo itself is a pleasure to be in: nicely decorated and well taken care of. I really enjoyed looking at all the artwork. The kids loved the beach and the pool. There are several great places to eat, including our absolute favorite on the beach within walking distance. The owner instructions about the area were extremely helpful. Thank you for sharing your place with us!
Great location and amazing staff.
I am so happy that you loved our condo on Half Moon Bay. We just returned from our summer stay at Playa Caribe and already miss waking up to the sounds of the Caribbean surf outside our door.
Summer months are very exciting on our beach with turtle nests hatching and turtles laying their eggs--both amazing sights to experience.
Please come back soon!
