Balcony experience!

While our condo is very well kept, nicely decorated and well appointed we can not compete with the view from our balcony. The pelicans and osprey fly only an arms length away. Looking down into the bay you will see turtles, rays, parrot fish and all the other sea life on display in the crystal clear waters. You can look to the east and see the Island of Cozumal and watch the cruise ships arriving and departing. Early morning risers will see the sun magically appear from the depths of the Caribbean. We have an electric BBQ, table for four and a lounge for your use on the Balcony. Past guests keep coming back year after year to enjoy the balcony and all the other attractions nearby.

About Jeanie Patrick

We have owned PC#11 for over ten years and never get bored returning. We spend our time in Akumal scattered throughout the months to experience all the different exciting events. Turtles laying their eggs beginning in May then hatching through November. Butterfly migrations in August, great fishing in April, May and June and snorkeling all year long.

Jeanie Patrick purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jeanie Patrick chose Akumal

Akumal is very unique. We have traveled extensively throughout Mexico and have seen no where else that is even close. Akumal is a small community with all the services that you would need all within walking distance. Restaurants, beach bars, galleries, gift shops, grocery stores, dive shops, fishing boats, YalKu lagoon and all the Mayan ancient sites to visit.

What makes this condo unique

Most of the activities we do are all nature centered. The area offers a wide variety of experiences to try. But we also like to laze around the beach or just read a good book on the balcony watching the birds, fish and turtles.

Absolutely Spectacular condo

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I just returned from 4 beautiful nights at Playa Caribe #11. This was our second trip to Akumal and this condo is definitely the best place to stay on Half Moon Bay! The condo is very nicely decorated and has everything you could want for a beach front vacation. The staff at Playa Caribe are fantastic, extremely friendly and helpful. Jose climbed the 4 flights of stairs 2 different nights to let us know there was a turtle laying eggs on the beach. We only used one of the bedrooms, but enjoyed each having a bathroom. Loved every minute of our stay!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, the condo was even better than we could have imagined. The pictures do not do it justice. There is so much natural light coming in all rooms, the balcony is the best. The bathrooms were spacious and everything was clean and ready for us. Having daily maid service made our vacation even more relaxing.

The location of the condo is near so many activities. We snorkeled in Half Moon Bay, checked out the beach in Akumal Bay, snorkeled at Yal-Ky Lagoon (only a short walk), and tried out the many great restaurants in the center of Akumal (walking distance as well). Our favorite activity was snorkeling Cenote Santa Cruz. Augustino at the front desk recommended it and it was quite an adventure.

We didn't see any sea turtles during our trip, but we saw their nests all over the beach. The night security guard was kind enough to offer to come and get us if he saw any at night, but unfortunately they didn't come.

I can't wait to return to Playa Caribe!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed many times at Playa Caribe, this our second in Mike's #11. We appreciate everything turning out just as portrayed in the literature. Also staff is much appreciated. Location in HMB is quiet with restaurants within easy walk.

We'll be back!

VIEWTOPIA!!!

  • 5 of 5

Christmas in Paradise! Words can't capture the experience of gazing out on the water from every room in the condo. From daily sunrises to nightly stargazing and everything in between, we loved it all! Relaxation taken to whole new level!

The area offers lots of interesting activities and Agustin was very helpful in planning these, as we were first-timers to this area. Also, lots of good restaurants within walking distance. We had a car but rarely used it, except for the bigger grocery shopping and trips to and from the airport.

Everyone at the condo was especially helpful. The kitchen was well stocked and with the daily room service it made the perfect combination for feeling both at home and pampered at the same time.

Thanks to the Cooks for sharing their claim to a little piece of Heaven!

Wonderful view! Meticulously maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented vacation rentals all over the world and this one stands out for its meticulous maintenance. Some listings present photos taken years ago and there has been little maintenance since. This condo is pristine! The pictures do not do it justice. It comfortably accommodated two couples and was equipped with everything you need. A number of good restaurants are in easy walking distance should you not wish to cook. The daily maid service is a plus. And did I mention the view? Spectacular!

Our penthouse condo is located on Half Moon Bay just a short 15 minute walk to the village of Akumal. The view from the balcony is absolutely breathtaking. Akumal is centrally located to all that the Yucatan has to offer. Just 25 minutes from Playa del Carmen and the exciting Fifth Ave and ferry to Cozumel. 20 minutes south is Tulum with the ancient Mayan archaeological site sitting on the bluff overlooking the Caribbean. The beaches of Tulum are world renowned for their spectacular white sand, blue waters and seemingly endless length.
