Great property, highly recommend.
"Such a wonderful property. Expertly maintained by local staff, Gaby and Zulma. They were so welcoming and we had a fantastic time. The house has four bedrooms in the main house and a fifth bedroom in the "casita," a smaller house on the other side of the lap pool. It's a little walk in to town, but we enjoyed the fact that it was farther away from the main tourist strip.You must have Zulma cook for you at least one night. The property manager, Monica, did a great job of meeting us when we arrived and providing recommendations on local activities and restaurants. We've rented many houses over the years and this one was definitely impressive. Excellent experience - highly recommend. For food we recommend the little lunch counter at Que Onda, La Lunita, and La Buena Vida. All very close to the house."

"This is our third time staying here and it is perfect for our family. This time we went with our two teenage children and one of their friends. It is always very clean and the staff is tremendous. The kitchen comes fully equipped and we like having the corner store within walking distance as well as La Buena Vida restaurant. I would highly recommend this spot for a nice relaxing vacation. There are plenty of sea turtles and the snorkeling is terrific. It is also close to Yal-ku lagoon for first time snorkeling. We will continue to return as this has become our family's favorite vacation spot. Could not ask for more!!!"

"Our stay at Casa Caribe was relaxing/peaceful; house has all the advertised features plus some. Christina is a doll, and took awesome care of us, including special requests & dinner (a 'must-do'...do early in the week for leftovers). She communicated with us in spite of our broken Spanish.
Didn't see/notice Luis; didn't see Rhett until part way thru week; didn't matter as house was ready and set for us. House has everything you need for the stay; nothing else we felt we needed. Owner and Christina were very responsive to requests (extra towels, etc.), and owner responded promptly to any questions. The pool was perfect for cool-off dips, especially since it was toasty warm during our stay (AC required for a comfy night's sleep). House is spacious, and we never felt crowded with 6 of us. Main floor bedrooms are good size (limited closet space in one) and each has attached bath (one with second door to hallway for convenience). The upstairs master is amazing, with a large tub, gorgeous deck and ocean views from bedroom and shower. Television area was comfy (used mainly for slide shows of pics taken; TV has extra HDMI connection) with TV being a bit small (~25 or 32 inch). The Wi-Fi worked fine during our stay.
Location is easy walk to La Buena Vida (restaurant/entry spot for snorkeling in half-moon bay [HMB]) and reasonable walk to Akumal & bay. Elderly folks (~80) with us, so needed car shuttle for those journeys with them.
We snorkeled at HMB, Yal-ku and with turtles at Akumal bay...all were great. Yal-ku charges $14 if you enter through land (free via long snorkel from HMB). Most literature at house regarding sites, etc. is a bit outdated - prices have gone up, and some places changed or gone. Update would be good for future visitors.
Ocean behind house was too rough to enter directly for snorkeling; not sure if ever calm enough due to the rocks (tempting tho). Not an issue with Buena Vida and HMB beach only a 5 minute walk away.
Location was excellent base for visits to Mayan Ruins and Cenotes. Definitely recommend rental car if sightseeing. Also recommend visit to Akumal Pueblo across highway for authentic Mexican flavor w/ variety of restaurants/food vendors for the adventurous. Grocery shop at Playa & convert some $ to pesos. Local exchange rates highly variable and no credit cards for gas.
Overall, I would love to return to Akumal, and would not hesitate to stay at Casa Caribe again."

"Our family of 5 greatly enjoyed a 3 night stay in a 3 BR at Del Sol Beachfront. There was plenty of room, the AC worked very well, the beds were firm and very comfortable. Ocean views fantastic and excellent snorkeling right out the front door. Able to swim with the green turtles! Everything was excellent."
