Magical is the perfect description of Playa Caribe #4. The condo overlooks the Caribbean Sea. It’s spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated with Mexican arts and crafts. My family was well cared for and welcomed by the condo’s staff and owner. We left renewed and recharged. I almost don’t want to write a review as it’s such a gem!

Management response:

Gracias for your kind words. We are so absolutely happy that you loved our condo and Akumal. Hope to see you again.

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Playa Caribe #4. We were expecting a lot from the pictures, but the condo was even better "in person". It was airy and light-filled with great art and furnishings. We loved the balcony, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen and, of course, the sound of the ocean was wonderful. We didn't...

Management response:

Thank you Suzy for your kind words. We want our condo to feel like your own completely furnished home, so we strive to make it bright and calming with soft colors and beautiful art pieces.. The windows with views allow you to wake up surrounded by nature every morning.

We loved playa Caribe #4. Everything was exactly as decribed. The condo spacious, meticulous and beautifully appointed. We are a family of 4; 7 yr old boy, 14 yr old daughter. Sharon's attention to detail was phenominal. The wonderful sample itinerary she provides is spot on. The beach is spectacular. The pool a very lovely addition as I think its...

About the neighbourhood
Easy access to the Tulum Maya ruins, riotous Playa del Carmen, the ferry to Cozumel, Chitzen Nitza and Coba, and snorkeling or swimming or diving in the sea just outside the condo. We love to SCUBA dive, relax in a quiet atmosphere that still has the amenities we want. Restaurants serving delicious and artful foods, many located right on the beach, are within walking distance as is shopping.
Getting around
You can walk to all restaurants in the village of Akumal. You may want a car if you decide to visit some of the nearby cultural attractions. Golf carts, bicycles can be rented and taxis with A/C are available. I have the name of a driver who can pick you up from CUN airport and return you there--reliable, affordable, we have all used him.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Cancun (CUN)--62 miles, ~1 hr: 100.0 km
Akumal is reached via the two lane each way, divided federal 307 highway straight south from the Cancun airport, about 1:15 min away. Large signs indicate the entrance to the village of Akumal where you will do a 'detour' (U-turn) to head north on 307, then turn right into the village through the Akumal arch. Continue on the beach road to reach the beautiful Playa Caribe #4 on your right, the ocean side. Driving is very safe, but don't speed!
