This unit, building and location exceeded all of our expectations. I want to address the seaweed concerns as we came in mid-May and were well warned about the potential for seagrass to impede our use of the beach. We almost went somewhere else!
There was enough seaweed right at our beach at this unit that it wouldn't have been pleasant to swim from there or use the chairs. But this did not negatively effect our vacation at all. We walked 5 properties up for lunch at La Lunita and swam there and it was seaweed free and clear. You can swim from anywhere, the shoreline is public. We also walked to the lagoon and it was great swimming and snorkeling and seaweed free. We could also walk to Akumal Bay and zero seaweed there and great beach access. The on-site pool is also a great alternative. Don't let it ruin your vacation! This unit on the second floor offers beautiful turquoise water views and you don't even see the seaweed. We looked at booking the "seaweed free" complex but you can't use the beach there 's rock. The tile in the unit was so cute and charming, the sunken tubs are special. Kitchen well appointed. Plenty of extras to borrow or rent on site. Akumal was safe, beautiful and friendly. I will never stay at one of those all inclusives again!

Manager's Response

Thank you, Sara! We're glad you know how to enjoy Riviera Maya regardless of beach conditions. Let us know when you're ready to visit Akumal again and we'll gladly help you find the property you most want.

Playa Caribe #5 is enchanting with its colorful interior, wonderful wall decor, and stunning view. We had major issues with internet (never resolved) and tv (never resolved) which caused real challenges with this family trip. Speaking of family, this is not a great unit for all parties. Both bedrooms have charming interior windows that have lovely, but limiting, shutters made from bamboo (or a similar reed plant) and the bamboo sticks have space in between those, which allow all sound to pass and allow some vision between rooms. The same materials and style are present in the interior windows that separate each room's en suite bath and the door for such. Altogether, this means that one of the two bedrooms is not fully isolated from the primary room, there is limited privacy and sound insulation between both rooms and their respective bathrooms, and there would be major safety challenges for a family with young children who inevitably would be drawn to climb through the interior windows.

Lovely condo right on the water. Great views.

This is a lovely condo right on the water with end to end views of Half Moon Bay from the living room and especially from the balcony. The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious and decorated with lovely Mexican tile. The website photos are an accurate representation. The condo complex is lovely and well maintained. Lounge chairs and thatched shady cabanas are provided on the beach. The staff is friendly and there is a security guard at night (although Half Moon Bay is a gated community and feels very safe anyway). Things to know: the master bedroom is not fully separated from the living room. There is an arched open space between the two rooms that has a short wall and a wicker screen but the top of the archway is open between the two rooms. Bottled drinking water is provided. Internet wifi is sketchy/poor. The village area by the arch is quite a long walk away (at least 20 minutes) although there are a couple of good restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The beach is white sand but the ocean bottom is very rocky. It is impossible to walk into the water without water shoes. We encountered the seaweed problem. Portions of the bay were murky and seaweed was floating In the water out to about 20 yards. Further down the beach there were portions that were clearer. Seaweed had floated ashore and there was a 2 foot berm/strip of it along the entire length of Half Moon Bay. We got used to this but it prevented the beach from seeming pristine.

Beautiful and Comfy Place to Stay.

This condo is so beautifully decorated, well appointed and we felt very secure. It had everything we needed. Plus the views from all rooms were amazing and the King bed was super comfortable. The staff was very helpful, and even came late in the evening when the wind blew a bedroom door shut and locked us out. The extra snorkel fins they had by the pool came in handy too. It is a very handy location as well. We loved walking to the village for dinner on occasion, especially recommend the Turtle Cafe and Bakery. Don’t miss walking to the nearby Cenote for snorkeling too. I hope we can return to this lovely condo.

We stayed 8 days in this condo and we couldn't dream of a better place. Sunrise from the balcony is breathtaking, the view is absolutely stunning. You can see the water not only from balcony but from the living room and bedrooms. The rooms were clean and Patricia, the cleaning lady, was amazing. I love that rooms were being clead daily as we cooked inside as well. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything and more than we need. The only issue we have was the slow internet connection as all 3vof us needed fast connection to work and study.
Beach in front of the condo is narrow and sometimes seaweeds are pilled up in the morning, but staff cleans them daily. To enter a water you will need water shoes as it is rocky. Just swim a bit away from the beach and you will find beatiful fish and corals. We were snorkeling every day. Right next to the building there is a small grocery store, very helpfu. 10 minutes walk there is very nice restaurant right on the beach La Buena Vida. We loved it. We also enjoy live music at Taverna restaurant in Akumal(20 minutes walk) where talented saxophonist was playing every Saturday evening at 7pm. The food is delicious, too. Akumal Bay is 20 minutes walk where we bought a ticket to snorkel and spent a day on the beach. We saw turtles, ray, colorful fish, and squid.
This was the best trip we ever had. Will stay at the same condo next time for sure.

Great location.

Condo seemed smaller then pictures shown, but also just as shown?? We had a few problems; leak under the sink, leak in master bath toilet, also really tiresome, the refrigerator door plastic pieces that held things on the door kept coming off resulting in messy broken items and cassette player that wouldn’t work. The management was a great help with the sink. The furniture was adequate but not really comfortable accept for the beds. Again the location was lovely as was the building, pool and many loungers provided by the beach.

The visit was our 2nd in 3 years. We very much enjoyed this visit. The staff was very accommodating and the area is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Cancun. Nearby restaurants provided excellent selection and cuisine. We would definitely recommend this location and Akumal Direct Reservations.

The Playa Caribe is a venue we have used many times. It has the greatest view in Half Moon Bay and is wonderfully munged. The condo was kept immaculately clean and the staff were very helpful. Akumal Direct made the reservation process easy. I left a toiletries kit at the condo when I checked out. Akumal Direct connected witt Playa Caribe who found the kit. Akumal Direct then made arrangements to get it back to me 5000 miles away. I call that outstanding service. The contentment we achieved in Akumal was not disrupted by my forgetfulness.

I loved this place! Huge bathrooms and stocker with amenities. I still cannot get over the view. I fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore every night—magical! My kids loved the pool and we were just a short walk from Buen vida and La Lunita. The only down side was it was pretty rocky in front of the condos and the condos was a tad smaller than I expected. Having said that, the staff and amenities more than made up for it.

We will definitely be back! We had a fantastic time relaxing and snorkeling right in front of the condo. The beach is beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice. The property manager is amazing... he was able to organize a fishing boat and day tour of the ruins/ cenotes for us that fit exactly what we were looking for. It was easy to get around, we walked and rented bikes. There are a few great restaurants within walking distance but the kitchen is well stocked so it was nice to be able to cook in the condo.We are looking forward to our next trip!!

Absolutely wonderful.

We had an amazing time. I’m the type that doesn’t enjoy being surrounded by a million people on vacation. It really felt like we had the whole Bay to ourselves.Everyday we went on an adventure and explored a new town or a beautiful Cenote. I loved sitting on the deck and watching the waves.Only thing that Could have been better was the seaweed, which is a natural phenomenon. Even that wasn’t too bad if you wanted to get in the water you just had to walk down the beach a bit.Great stay great host.

Great condo, but really bad seaweed problem now all along the coast...

I had stayed in this condo in 2014 and had a wonderful time, so decided to go back last week (3/2 - 3/9). The condo is located on the 2nd floor of the Playa Caribe building, is very nice, always clean, with great places to eat nearby. When we arrived on Saturday we were shocked to see (and smell) all of the seaweed that was rolling into the bay and piling up along the shore. I guess this is a relatively new problem, not just in Half Moon bay but all over. I feel bad having to write this review because Annie has always been great to work with, and since she owns this condo it will no doubt cause her some problems. The staff worked all day, each day, trying to keep up with it which was quite a job. We drove down to the beach at Tulum, which is one of our all time favorite places to swim in the beautiful blue surf, and they were having the same problem, so we turned around and came back. We did use the pool, and also went down the road to the lagoon to snorkel, which was excellent! Lots of fish and no seaweed there, but lots of groups of people being hauled in by van and buses. If you are looking for a relaxing time, eating good food, and don't care about the seaweed, it's a great condo. I would just suggest you check on conditions...

Relaxing and wonderful vacation

We had a wonderful time at Annie's. The location of the condo couldn't have been more perfect - an easy walk to 'town' but even easier to both La Lunita and La Buena Vida restaurants. Half Moon Bay was affected by sargassum but that's Mother Nature and there was always a clear path somewhere along the way to get in the water and swim. And workers were constantly cleaning up the beach. The staff at Playa Caribe are top notch. Agustin even set up for us to have in-room massages on the last night of our stay! We look forward to our next trip to Annie's!!

This was my husband and my first time NOT staying in an all inclusive. Our best friends who shared Annie’s condo with us had never done either or even been to Mexico. It was also my first time doing a VRBO. From the second I booked it i received my first email from Annie. Every possible question I had was already answered in this first email which completely set me at ease.Now the condo itself. No other word other than perfect. PERFECT. Four adults in our 50’s, we spent most of our time on the deck, snorkeling in halfmoon bay or swimming in the pool. Tulum was stupid busy.....back to the condo. Yal Ku Lagoon was stupid busy.....back to the condo. It literally had EVERYTHING you needed. And a perfect location.Thank you Annie for an incredible holiday

Great place...

Loved the traditional style of the place. Of course, the view is fantastic and you not only have a view forward on the patio but the sides are open also for additional view. Spent alot of time on that patio! As noted on the listing, the WiFi was perfect and the air conditioning was perfect and comfortable. Hot water was endless. Kitchen was fully stocked. Akumal is more of a low key area versus Playa de Carmen and Cancun. Went down to Tulum one day and that is getting so busy, I was so glad to get back to Akumal and Annie's place that day to relax again. Great place! Thank you Annie.

Clean unit in a beautiful location!
