Description

Ethereal beauty, white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, coral reefs, turtles and abundant sea creatures, prehistoric ruins, serenity, stunningly decorated condo—this is the Maya Riviera and Playa Caribe #4. it work its magic on you!!

Playa Caribe #4 is a second floor luxury-but-affordable-unit with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms that provides the ultimate in privacy and has fabulous VIEWS OF BOTH the aquamarine CARIBBEAN AND verdant JUNGLE, view from every room.

Our condo is just steps from the ocean and you have the ability to watch turtles and rays cavort in the bay waters below. The condominium building has only 12 units and is among the BEST in Akumal because we are unique with enticing amenities like:
- CENTRAL AIR so that you really are cool during the hot days and warm nights (you can still choose to open your windows),
-RO PURIFIED WATER from all taps so you can drink it directly just like at home and not get sick,
-Stunning infinity POOL on the beach.
-Security guard at night, onsite office with manager, safe in master bedroom, off street parking

Playa Caribe #4 is decorated in soft Caribbean-zen colors with textures of Mexico, three custom-made stained glass windows, a breathtaking museum quality Mexican mask collection, and many diverse pieces of Mexican cultural art (some of the paintings I did myself) which all gently bring Mayan ambience into your life. Both bedrooms have large private balconies that look directly onto the jungle, and a third larger balcony is off the living room looking onto the beach where you can dine or read while watching turtles and rays swim in the ocean waters below. There is FREE dependable wireless INTERNET service.
***Walk the beach at sunrise and sunset, watch for turtle egg laying and hatching, drink a margarita under a palapa, read the book that you’ve been meaning to start, forget your troubles under the stars, and peacefully dream about your next visit to enchanting Akumal and Playa Caribe #4.

The unit sleeps max 6: the master bedroom with a comfy king bed (and 600 thread count linens) has views both of the sparkling ocean and the lush jungle, with an ensuite full bath with tub/shower and two sinks. The second bedroom has two double beds with romantic mosquito canopies and a full bath also with tub/shower. Each bedroom has its own balcony. There is a new 50" SMART TV in the living room.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cooktop, microwave, convection and browning oven, refrigerator, many small appliances, serving dishes, spices, cloth napkins, and candles—everything to make your stay enjoyable . . . . and memorable. Dining is at the breakfast bar or at the dining table, with magnificent views. There is daily maid service (you do not need to do dishes or make your bed if you don’t want to!), 24-hour security, and room safe. We are concerned about our environmental impact, and have been awarded the CEA Ecological seal of approval for environmental protection.

Playa Caribe is within walking distance of beachside gourmet restaurants and breakfast cafes, and abounds with activities like snorkeling or scuba diving on the offshore reefs, swimming in the unique cenotes, tours to Mayan ruins, or siestas.

The Maya name Akumal means “land of the turtle” because turtles actually do lay eggs and hatch here during the summer; this is an incredible life affirming experience to watch.

Other activities:
Cenotes, ATVing, eco-adventure parks, dolphin experiences, spa treatments, and more.
Playa del Carmen, which hosts the ferry to the island of Cozumel, is a 20-min drive north and has many activities should you desire to leave your tranquil life in Akumal for the day or evening.
The Maya ruins at Tulum are only a 20 minute drive south of Akumal.
There are several nearby GOLF courses.

I can't say enough.about this.property. it is nicer than the photos can portray. The bedrooms are very spacious with large closets and wonderful bath. The design elements along with the attention to decor and lighting made the experience extra special. The common areas are spacious and well appointed. Everything you could ever need is at hand. The view is amazing and a constant source of pleasure. It is located in a nice area with a very nice and convenient beach bar nearby.

We rented a.golf cart which I would recommend. It is not far from the main village but we did enough walking on the beach and a hot walk into town was not on my bucket list.

The staff is very responsive and the housekeeper, Patricia is very sweet and took wonderful care of us.

You will not be disappointed

Enjoy it as much as we did.

is a gem

Arriving in Playa Caribe was easy. We felt safe as we left the freeway and entered the quaint town of Akumal. One two way road takes you though a hotel arch (yes, no typo), the town's square, the natural reserve building, the parking lot for all Akumal activities, and many restaurants on the side, to a security "casilla" and a friendly checkpoint, where you have to know your address. As instructed, we pulled into the Playa Caribe front parking lot, and a security guard checked us in, without delay.

The apartment was clean and fresh (AC was on and there was music playing for us)

The ocean front balcony was much more than I expected; the place where we had our first cup of coffee, or morning mate in my case.

Speaking of breakfast, the small kitchen had all we needed to prepare an omelette or warm up the left over pizzas. I imagine you could cook there, I just don't understand that concept. There are many good places to eat out around Half Moon Bay.

The two master suites are magnificent. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious, and comfortable. Plenty of hot water, basic toiletries, clean towels.

Throughout the apartment the decor is "Mexican eclectic" with native design masks and deities, local Christian touches (lots of miracle charms, you should google that), and ocean symbolism.

If only once, you should go to Akumal Bay and swim with the turtles. Either way you have to pay a "certified snorkel guide" who will take you to the area where the turtles are. They provide some equipment and the mandatory flotation device. You do not need to go to the Parque Natural and pay a lot, by going to the Lol-Ha restaurant thru the Hotel Akumal Caribe (driveway between OXXO market and Chomak market) and paying 450M$ for a palapa for the day (includes two beach chairs and access to clean bathrooms and showers. The restaurant food is great! We really liked the ceviche mixto.

Even though its not much advertised, and access is a bit rocky, snorkeling in the bay in front of the building is a wonderful surprise. Don't forget water shoes.

The apartment is so quiet, the sound of the waves come though and lulls you. We all came back well rested and with happy hearts.

We will most certainly be coming back to Playa Caribe.

As great as our anticipation of our experience and the beautiful pictorial provided of Playa Caribe #4, justice was served. This place was majestic and magnificent by all accounts. Our condo was warm and inviting. We couldn't have been more comfortable in this "no place like home" environment. To wake up to the spectacular view of the beautiful sunrise out on the horizon and each crystal clear night with the stars touching the sea, it couldn't have been more beautiful. The on-site management staff was very warm and always eager to help. The cleaning staff was reliable and kept our condo and grounds spotless. We found the property location to be as good as it gets sitting in the middle of Half Moon Bay. Very quiet and peaceful. At the same time, only minutes away from all the activity one might desire without ever leaving Akumal. Our family of four really felt as though we were treated as VIPs. We truly can't wait to return to Akumal and will do everything possible to plan around the availability to once again stay at Playa Caribe #4

We were looking for a relaxing tropical vacation, but wanted one on our own terms and not at a theme-park-like resort. Playa Caribe, in the middle of Half Moon Bay in Akumal delivered just that. The condo is beautiful and right on the sand.

We had a great time exploring and snorkeling on our own and sampling the restaurants in Akumal Village and the Pueblo. We’d recommend a private tour of the Santa Cruz Cenote, the only privately-owned Cenote in the region. JP took my family and I through this amazing experience in a private setting—not a cattle call like the big resorts put people through.

The pre-stay communication and the great service by Manager Agustin was fantastic. We will definitely be returning some day.

Instead throwing out the life story you often find on Pinterest, I decided to bullet point key highlights and qualities about the property.

* Walking through the door provides visitors the opportunity to experience that the property is quite beyond the photos viewed online.

* The easiest check-in/checkout ever (in my experience)!

* WiFi and air conditioning are on point (excellent)!

* Was able to access my apps on the television.

* Great communication between management. (If I needed anything all I had to do was request, and someone returned my query quickly and efficiently.)

* Bedding and furniture were very comfortable.

* Groceries delivery service was able to bring groceries directly to condo.

* Beach staff worked tirelessly to maintain beach and make sure all surroundings were clean without being too noticeable.

**** Housekeeping service was discreet, professional and quick. (In and out like ninjas. You’d be hard pressed to see them in action, and were just greeted with a sparkling clean condo when returning for another drink etc.)

* Several options of activities/sightseeing in area.

* I can’t wait to return!!!

I highly recommend! I went with my mom, brother, sister-in-law, and their five month old son, and it perfectly accommodated us in every way. The pool is a perfect temperature, the beach gorgeous and the view is to die for. Everything is so close, including delicious restaurants and scuba diving and snorkeling. It was so relaxing, safe, and an awesome place to spend a week building memories. The kitchen has everything you need from a blender to cooking supplies to tupperware. There is a security guard on duty all of the time, (even though the town feels very safe) and two little "corner stores" right next to the building. The workers are kind, the maid did an incredible job each day. The host also sent us a week long itinerary with tons of wonderful things to do if we did not want to relax in the serenity. I can not recommend this place enough for a family, a friend trip, or even a solo getaway!

We had a great week! Highlights included snorkeling in the bay out front and several other places nearby, walking to the great nearby restaurants, swimming in the pool, and a ceynote tour. The condo was very clean, totally bug free, and very spacious for our family of 4! The information from the owner, sent to us before our trip, was very helpful for our packing and planning. A great place -- we would definitely stay there again! (Other reviewers have noted that there a seaweed issue throughout Half Moon Bay, but it was not a big deal for us -- several workers persistently worked at clearing it out. For us, it meant that we walked 1-2 minutes north where there were fewer rocks and less seaweed to enter the water for snorkeling. During our visit, there was no terrible smell like some others have reported.)

Condo is beautiful and in a great location for exploring the area. Our only complaint is that we didn’t stay longer.

The condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the staff at the Playa Caribe are very accommodating and friendly. A huge benefit for us, being first time visitors to this area, was the wealth of knowledge that Shari shared with us about the area. It made it very efficient for us to learn the ropes and make the most of our stay in Akumal.

We are hesitant to write this review because we are scared the secret of Playa Caribe #4 will get out. We have been to Akumal several times in the past 10 years and watched it change from a sleepy beach town to Akumal Bay becoming a turtle tourist trap.

We were so relieved to find that Half Moon Bay has retained the charm we came to love so dearly about Akumal. The north end of Akumal is just as quiet and lovely as we remember.

Shari's condo is so comfortable and beautifully appointed- from the great kitchen equipment to water you can drink out of the tap!! Her recommendations for a magical stay are spot on- Cenote Santa Cruz was our favorite cenote experience ever and the snorkeling in front of the condo is spectacular. Thank you. We'll be back!

This is a lovely condo with everything you need for a great vacation. Top notch staff! Great communication with the owners. We enjoyed the beach at Akumal more as there was less moss and calmer waters. A day trip to the ruins at Tulum followed by the afternoon at Playa Paraiso was fantastic. Monday night karaoke at La Palapa in Chemuyil was fun if you’re more adventurous. The restaurants around the condo are all good but not as cheap as other areas of Mexico. The colectivo is a cheap way to get to Tulum from Akumal (runs til 11:00 pm) Thanks, Shari for the use of your condo.

My family had a truly wonderful week staying in Playa Caribe #4. The condo is beautiful, spacious and with a spectacular view. Really appreciated the fruit, coffee, tortillas and salsa welcome basket. All the restaurants are in walking distance. However, if you want to book a golf cart for the week, I suggest you book it prior to your arrival if you are visiting at a popular time (as none were available for rent during our stay between Christmas and New Year). However, I am glad as we really enjoyed walking to and from our dinners - super safe area.

Make sure to bring water shoe for swimming on Half Moon Bay so that the coral is not an issue.

Highly recommend for a relaxing week.

Our vacation at Akumal was great. Staying at Playa Caribe #4 was a perfect addition to that great experience. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. We felt so welcome as soon as we set foot in the property. Agustin was awesome, and he is always smiling. Our maid was Patricia and she was very always on time and made sure our place was always clean and organized everyday. The condo is a paradise. The view from the deck was amazing. We watched the sunrise and the full moon relaxing on the deck.The kids enjoyed the pool which was very clean. They enjoyed watching the three little iguanas that roamed around the pool. They even named them Brad, Gary and Pedro. We will miss them. The property is so safe and secure as there is a security guard on duty each night. Well Akumal is very safe in the first place. The condo is pretty stacked with all the things you need. The beds are really comfy and place has ample space for the 5 of us. It is a walking distance to La Buena Vida restaurant, and we ate there almost everyday. We biked to Yalku lagoon, to town, and to Turtle beach. Its a great way to ride a bike around town as traffic and parking can be a hassle in town. I truly recommend Playa Caribe #4 to anyone who wants to stay in Akumal. And the owner Shari is great, accommodating, prompt communicator, and has lots of ideas and suggestion to add to your great vacation.

As advertised and pictured. We are well traveled and this was one of our favorite condo rentals. So well decorated, layout was functional and spacious. We felt right at home. The welcome basket was nice touch and the staff was amazing. We felt so surrounded by friendly faces and safe. The view from the balcony can't be beat--get up and watch the sun rise. We ate out there a lot for breakfast and snacks.
We left the doors open from the master bedroom almost all the time to enjoy the view. We would read, napped and would just hang out in the bed. Two large baths great for a family of four, we have a 12 year old and 14 year old, this was perfect for us. 
Two things about this vacation that made it superior, the suggested daily schedule and location in Half Moon Bay and easy walk to town. We would walk almost every night to town for a drink, dinner or ice cream, under a clear sky the 1/2 mile trip each way was refreshing and beautiful. 
We followed the 7 day agenda for the most part and it delivered. We did Tulum, Coba, Sian Kian Bio Sphere, snorkeling, and all the suggested restaurants. We had our favorites slightly different then the host but that is what makes the world go round. 
We liked La Cueva Del Pescordor for the fish. Everyday we had Lucy's Ice Cream, in one week my son must have tried, 10 out of the 30 flavors. If you need a break from Mexican go Italian at Taverna. The setting alone is magical, it was one our top favorites besides the fish place. 
Also the vibe and location at the La Buena Vida can't be beat. Make a reservation and ask for a table on the water. Amazing at night. Also they have lots of entertainment there so stop by for a drink and something will be going on between 8-10PM. Good all ages but our tween and teen loved it as did we. 
We rented snorkel gear for the week and went off our beach everyday. We saw sea turtles, tons of fish, and colorful coral why leave your own backyard. 
Rent this condo if you are looking for pre-built vacation that can be as low key or action packed as you want to make it. Akumal and condo are charming and easy! You may never leave but if you do the Mayan surroundings are worth the trip.

How often do you book a rental online, study all the pictures, read the reviews... and when you arrive, it's actually NICER than the descriptions? I didn't think this was possible until we arrived at Playa Caribe #4. This condo was sparkling clean, beautifully decorated, and the layout was perfect. It's an open feel, where we could lay in bed in the master bedroom, and look through the living room to a spectacular view of the beach. The bathroom was spacious, with plenty of water pressure, the kitchen was well supplied equipped, and there was plenty of closet space with enough hangers for all my clothes. The bed was comfortable, and the towels were incredibly plush. The staff at Playa Caribe made us feel welcome, safe and were very friendly. We were fortunate to see the sea turtles laying their eggs, as well as babies hatching. Jose was more than happy to knock on our door to wake us up. This vacation was the first time my husband & I had traveled to Mexico and we were a bit apprehensive. But that all vanished within the first few hours. We didn't rent a car, but I would recommend doing so. The roads are easy to navigate, and taxis got expensive. The town of Akumal is very safe, and we walked to and from town after dark without any fear. Our favorite restaurants were La Buena Vida and The Turtle Creek. Although there was a good amount of seaweed on the beach, it didn't bother us too much. We just went swimming in the pool instead. When entering Half Moon Bay, there were a lot of rocks in the water to navigate. I would recommend beach shoes. Shari was the perfect host. She emailed us all the information we needed for a "perfect week", and was very responsive in answering all of our questions. My husband & I had one of the best vacations ever in Akumal, and we can't wait to go back!
