Although this was our third trip to Akumal it was our first on Half Moon Bay. Choose this casitia based on its price during High Season. Pleasantly surprised. This unit is in a free standing building seperate from the Playa Blanca high rise. It is on the street side corner of the PB property and on the ground floor. The front door of the casita is on the road side but the sliding patio door faces the beach - which is about 20 yards away. Unit is set up basically like a double hotel room but with a small kitchenette. Not huge but fine for our family of four (kids 14 and 10) because we live on the beach and not in the room. It was quite comfortable for the six nights we were there. Property is very well maintained and staff was wonderful. This best feature of this casita is the beach side patio which has a table and seating for four. No cable/satellite tv but did have a DVD and pretty good Wifi. Unit is managed by a neighboring complex which has an on site office. Rented movies from the( Lol Ha) office several nights and bikes for the week, too. They even helped us place an order for pizza one night. Nice place, well maintain and all for a great Spring Break price. Onlyreal complaint - and I mean only - is that the landscaping lights shine DIRECTLY in the two large windows at night. However, I fixed this after the first night by unscrewing the bulbs. By the third night the grounds guys discovered my solution and tightened them so, not to cause problems, I'd unscrew them each night before bed (they really do make the grounds lovely) and then I'd tighten them in the morning.
