Description

Akumal is a truly special vacation destination! This beachside village just an hour south of Cancun boasts a laid-back vibe, great restaurants, shops, abundant nature and outdoor activities. Playa Caribe #8 is the perfect place to enjoy everything Akumal has to offer!

This bright and airy third floor unit in one of the area's premier condominium buildings has three balconies overlooking gorgeous Half Moon Bay--one off each of the two spacious bedrooms and another adjacent to the living room where you can enjoy sweeping 180 degree views of the pristine bay below. Dine al fresco while watching the sea turtles swimming in the sparkling blue waters. Sip your morning coffee on the balcony as the sun rises over the Caribbean. Fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping on the shore just outside your window. This clean and comfortable condo, which sleeps up to five, is stocked with everything you need for a relaxing vacation you'll never forget.

Playa Caribe offers many amenities you won't find in most other Akumal condominiums, including a pool right on the beach. The Playa Caribe staff are knowledgeable and attentive. Daily maid service is included in the rental and the building's friendly manager is on hand daily to recommend restaurants, arrange taxis, secure reservations, and answer any questions you might have about the building and activities in the area. The building has an on-site night watchman.

Playa Caribe #8 is outfitted with everything you need in a home away from home, including central air and WiFi.

The master bedroom features:

-A king size bed
-A television with satellite service
-An en suite bathroom with sunken tub and shower
-A small private balcony
-A safe

The second bedroom features:
-A queen size bed
-A couch that pulls out to sleep one
-A en suite bathroom
-A small private balcony

The kitchen is outfitted with a refrigerator, cook top, microwave, and all the must have appliances including a blender for your margaritas and a coffee pot.
Akumal means "land of the turtle" in Mayan, and for good reason. Sea turtles live year-round in Akumal's two bays. Females nest on the beach in front of Playa Caribe, and watching hatchlings emerge then scamper into the ocean by moonlight is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Strap on a snorkel and swim with the turtles that live in Half Moon Bay, or just watch them from the comfort of Unit #8's balcony.

Playa Caribe's location offers both convenience and privacy. It's steps away from the festive Buena Vida bar and restaurant as well as the romantic seaside eatery La Lunita. The popular Yal-Ku snorkeling lagoon is also a short walk. Half Moon Bay is a quieter alternative to the busier Akumal bay, and its white-sand beach never feels crowded.

With bustling Playa Del Carmen 30 minuets to the north, and picturesque Tulum a 30 minute drive to the south, Akumal is the ideal spot to explore the Riviera Maya. Whether you spend the days scuba diving, swimming in the cenotes, visiting Mayan ruins, or just sitting under a palapa on the beach, you'll be happy Playa Caribe #8 is your home base.

The condo was perfect - the location, the cleanliness, the onsite staff, the comfortable bed and the fully stocked kitchen utensils. We lacked for nothing. And the view is so beautiful. What a great place to unwind and enjoy life. We will definitely return!

We have stayed in Playa Caribe twice and really enjoyed the view from the balcony in Kenneth's unit! We would love to stay here again in the future.

We are seasoned travellers, who prefer villas/condos. Casa 8 in the lovely Playa Caribe building did not disappoint!
First I must comment on the staff. They are exceptional, from Augustin at the front desk to maintenance, security and housekeeping. Everyone is friendly and so helpful. After spending three weeks here we feel like we are leaving family. 
The building is located in the center of Half Moon Bay. A great location. We had one week with no seaweed then the winds changed and the beach is totally covered. Although they try to remove it they cannot keep up. 
Casa 8 is very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need. Dishes, pots, pans, appliances, plastic containers for storage and patio dishes. Excellent! The reverse osmosis water is a great perk! 
Towels are soft and bedding adequate. Laundry facilities would be a great add for long term visitors. As well, adding a satellite dish with Canadian & USA channels would be great for folks staying longer. 
The view is spectacular from Unit 8 as it is a center Unit. 
We thank the staff of Playa Caribe for their hospitality!

An incredible vacation experience. We rented unit number eight. There were four of us. My husband and I and my son and his guest. Both bedrooms had their own beautiful bathrooms and private balcony overlooking the ocean. From the bed to the water was approximately 40 feet! Every night we fell asleep listening to the waves in the wind. It was magnificent The town is full of fantastic restaurants. Several you can walk to. The beach in front is rocky and had a lot of seaweed but it was beautiful and serene. Bring water shoes it’s rocky. The pool is small but refreshing. I wish they had a ladder or stairs to help you get out of the pool. It’s harder for older people. Also there is no elevator and we had to climb up three flights of stairs to get into our condo. But once you got up it there The view was worth it. The condo was well stocked. You could cook a meal in the kitchen all of the utensils and pans were there. Overall it was an incredible vacation. We met several people who had returned to Akumal for several years and we could definitely see why.

Wonderful Vacation!

We have been coming to Akumal for 20+ years and this is the first time we have stayed in this condo. It was amazing in every way. The views were magnificent of the bay. Loved swimming in the pool. I would not recommend the unit to anyone with mobility issues as it is on the 3rd floor.

#8 is Delightful!

We completely enjoyed the view and the accomodations of Playa Caribe #8. The casa is well appointed with everything you need to cook, enjoy the beach and relax! The air conditioning at night was great for sleeping. The bed is comfortable. I really can't think of any about the casa I would change. The beach out front is a little skinny, but the deck chairs and cover from the sun is great. The staff was very responsive and helpful.

Excellent choice

We are a couple and spent 3 weeks in unit #8. The view as you walk in the door is spectacular. We enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen, there is a toaster oven to replace not having an oven. The bathrooms have views to the sea and we loved the sound of the surf night and day. We “worked from home” and there were internet issues which were being resolved, otherwise was a perfect spot to work from the dining table or island or covered deck. We loved the accommodating staff, the unit was always spotless, water jug replaced when needed, and building water filtered and potable. Need water shoes for easy entry off this beachfront. It was windy and wavy while we were there so snorkelling and swimming not experienced as easily as expected (still great). Excellent location for us, two easily walkable restaurants by road or beach, La Buena Vida and La Lunita, charming and excellent food. We rented bikes for the duration and I loved taking the ride into town. Seeing the turtles at Akumal Beach with a guide is out of this world. Yal-Ku lagoon nearby for snorkelling. The corner store across from Playa Caribe had just about everything we might have needed for a shorter stay, including alcohol and fridge foods, some fruit and snacks. We had a car but Augustin or the property manager was always on-site and quick to help with anything. Pleasant surprises were the unit has a cabinet full of games, and a cooler and beach chairs and umbrella which we could take to other beaches for a picnic. The pool area is well maintained and beach front chairs plentiful. This area is quiet. You hear other guests by the pool sometimes, as expected, but overall surf, stars, sunrises, and a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Wish we had brought binoculars to scan the sea life off the deck. The size of the unit accommodated us well and our daughter when she came to visit. We are grateful for their attention to detail and would return to this location in a heartbeat.
