“Worth The Wait!”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2014

Good things come to those who wait, and we waited an entire year to arrive back in Akumal! First go around we stayed at an all inclusive which was not to my liking to be honest. Happy to have met the owners of Playa Caribe #4 on the dive boat and knew their place would be worth coming back to dive another birthday with friends. First, the view - spectacular! Second, location, location, location! Third, the condo itself! From the fruit basket, notes from the staff, instructions for everything, fully stocked kitchen and my favorite Patty the housekeeper :) Loved coming home each and everyday to a beautiful place that felt like home, to be honest a week came and went and we did not want to leave :( I recommend renting a golf cart for the week like we did, makes it fun to drive to the arch for groceries or in my case going to the Turtle Bay Cafe for flan everyday! Also have bikes to ride, good exercise if you ride to and from town. I cannot say enough great things about this property and it's owners - worth a trip to Akumal!

“2nd stay and wont be the last”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2014

Once again our stay in PC #4 was wonderful.The condo is perfect in every way and has all the comforts of home. I enjoyed all the updates through out the unit , the mask collection and the mural on the balcony wow... We did some light cooking and had dinner out with the many choices close to PC. The views are amazing, the caribbean waters delightful and my favorite is the sealife just steps away. There are many simple pleasures with in this small town and staying in #4 is definitely the top of the list The owners are a pleasure to deal with and reply quickly. My favorite .Enjoy!

“Playa Caribe # 4 Stellar condo on lovely Halfmoon Bay akumal”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2014

We stayed at Playa Caribe #4 for nine nights from December 7,2013. We had an absolutely wonderful time at this lovely condo. It was true to the descriptions and reviews we found before we booked. In fact, it was even better! Not mentioned was being able to see the sunrise over the ocean right off the balcony (when we got up early enough!), and then being able to sit out on the balcony enjoying the ocean view, in the hotter part of the day, but in the shade. We had many plans but they were soon seduced away by the snorkeling, swimming, and relaxation, while taking advantage of the great in house library! While we saw many other guests who had rented cars and had no problem at all, we had decided to go with bicycles to simplify the holiday. We rented bikes, with baskets and a lock, from Pablo in the office for our stay. Our main draw here was the snorkeling so, depending on the ocean "surf" (usually not much), we'd snorkel in front on the condo in Half Moon Bay, or throw our snorkel gear in the bike baskets and bike 20 minutes on a quiet, scenic road to akumal Bay where snorkeling in front of the Beach Resort was also fabulous, as was Yal-Ku Lagoon. We did take the "collectivo" public transportation) to Hidden Worlds cenotes and to Tulum and Paraiso Beach. We'd stay again at Playa Caribe #4. The owners were quick to respond to our requests and have many suggestions for "a perfect week at Playa Caribe # 4" , which were spot on. La Lunita and La Buena Vida restaurants are within walking distance of the condo and perfect for a romantic, feet in the sand, beach side lunch or dinner. Patty, our maid, was lovely. The entire stay for us was worry and stress free made possible with the great staff, friendliness, safety and cleanliness of Playa Caribe (and akumal) in its beautiful ocean setting. One note: Atms in akumal resort area not always working so bring lots of pesos for the small artisan shops and genuinely, friendly, helpful locals. (Credit cards, us $ may be accepted.

“Lovely Stay at Playa Caribe #4”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2013

I don't know where to even start with this review. Maybe I should just thank Shari and Ron for allowing us to stay in their beautiful condo on Half Moon Bay. There is not one thing that we would have changed about the entire 2 weeks that we stayed there. It was perfect. Augustin, the manager, was easy to deal with and so willing to help. Patricia the maid is exceptional and works so hard to keep the condo clean for us. I actually felt guilty and did the morning dishes for her so she wouldn't have so much to do. This condo is in close proximity to everything that you will need. It is comfortable, with attention to detail, wonderfully decorated. The mattress is great. No worries about what you have heard of the mattresses in Mexico here. You sink into the mattress in this bedroom. I highly recommend this unit and this building. We have always stayed at an aI in Mexico,matter of fact, for the last 12 trips but we are now converts and will always seek out a condo instead of the all-inclusive deals. It really didn't cost us anymore staying here than it did to go to an all-inclusive for 2 weeks. We could've done it cheaper as we ate out every lunch and supper. I almost hate to recommend Playa Caribe as I want to be sure that there is always availability for us. Can hardly wait to go back to relax and snorkel and see all my friends.

“Fabulous condo and place”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2013

Vrbo from Homeaway Your Review is Pending Please read and confirm your review for Property #295826 below. Confirm Your Review This condo far exceeded my expectations! Although the web site was great , informative, and really easy to follow, I did not think the place would be as gorgeous as it was. The furnishings are extremely tasteful, comfortable and the location is perfect. I felt like I was in a 5 star hotel. The view of the water and the sea turtles swimming is great and can be seen inside the condo, or on their large porch. The little town of akumal is picturesque, and offers some great restaurants, and akumal Bay provides fabulous snorkeling. We loved the condo so much, that we mostly stayed there, and dined there too The view and ambiance was out of this world!!! Owner made it very easy to rent and answered all our questions promptly.

“Exactly what we asked for and more than we dreamed .”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2013

We wanted a pool which is wonderfully relaxing and a Beach just steps outside the condo. It is a beautiful beach not rocky like some in the area. I enjoyed walking out into the mild surf with my water shoes on more than bare feet. Having aC was a big big plus in aug. It made the trip more enjoyable thought it was not really hot. Honestly we could have stayed right at the condo but we like to explore and drove to the ruins in Coba and other places. An afternoon at the Lagoon was peaceful, first real snorkeling my kids have done. We did not need the life jackets but did rent a Hut. - Pack a lunch and relax. Only time I got sunburnt. Often we cook/grill in a lot or we eat from Street Vendors etc which we certainly could have done. 2 wonderful places within walking distance and many in akumal. Pancho Villa's (no CC) in town. La Lunita was truly special. Prices were about what we would pay at home for a full service restaurant and wow what service and view. The groceries we did get came from the little store next door. There are many full service groceries stores however. The welcome basket was perfect touch. Thumbs up to the staff also. As you might expect Wifi is not 100% dependable but can be had in town very easily. Most everyone spoke English but we tried to learn a little Spanish. My son-18 and daughter-16 were training and ran 5 to 8 miles each night all into town and felt very safe. I felt the owners were gracious and helpful. The unit is very nice but I didn't feel I had to worry about breaking anything which adds to my relaxation. This was our first trip to the pensiula and so appreciated having a choice from the Mega complexes. It was Turtle season and that was really a memory. Next time we go visiting random Senokes is on my list and I sure hubby will be playing golf. , the property very clean, and house keeping accommodating, This would be a good location for several families traveling together or family reunions.

“Wonderful amazing Stay in akumal”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2012

We had an amazing wonderful time in akumal. Your place is really great! It worked out perfectly for 2 couples. The staff at Playa Caribe from Pablo and agustin to Patty the maid are great and very helpful. We looked at some other condos while we were there and none were as nice and clean as yours. We snorkelled 2 or 3 times a day the whole week at half moon bay, Ya Kul, and akumal bay. Some of the photos are from our cenote trip to Hidden Worlds. We went to Tulum and thank you for letting us know about Mezzanine. We had lunch there and it was wonderful!! I thought at first it was just a tourist come on about swimming with the turtles in akumal bay, but I lost count of the number I saw. Maybe 12 or more. Also 2 rays in Ya Kul and 1 in akumal bay. The weather was great just a little rain over night a few days and then Thursday there was heavy rain in the afternoon and again on Friday. We enjoyed all the restaurants you suggested. Loved the guacamole at Tequilaville. Thanks again for all your help. Richard

“Beutiful, peaceful condo”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

Best vacation ever!! The condo was so large for our 3 children that we all had our own space. We loved swimming with the turtles in the Bay, and we even got to see a mama turtle laying her eggs. Everything we needed was in the condo and it was even more beautiful than my own home. I love the quiet community, with one main road to walk up and down, but enough restaurants and little shops that we had everything we needed. I hated to leave but have already made a reservation for next year.

“Dream fantasy on beach in akumal Mexico”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2012

Wow! What a dream fantasy vacation! Every time we stay at Playa Caribe #4 it is more beautiful. The view of the sparkling ocean is to die for, the beds are comfy, and the Mexican masks are a beautiful collection. They must have been fun to look for and buy. Agustin in the office, was helpful with the day excursions , but we loved your condo so much it was hard to leave it. My kids loved the pool and the ocean with almost no waves. I loved snorkeling and following the same turtle around every day. The best most relaxing vacation ever.
