Playa Blanca, a wonderfully popular three-story condominium is located near the center of beautiful Half Moon Bay. Enjoy your own private balcony or patio to do some turtle watching here in season. Lucky guests can stroll on the quiet beach each morning with a cup of coffee to take in the splendor of the spectacular sunrises. All units have air conditioning in the bedrooms and DSL internet. Some have TV for DVD or VCR, so request these when reserving. The roof top deck offers a marvelous view. Just steps from the door is some fantastic snorkeling in the Bay and time can be easily passed while resting on the covered terraces by watching the pelicans dive for meals or taking a siesta in a hammock.

All the units have Caribbean facing living areas, with fantastic views, no matter what level the condo is on. Each unit is privately owned, so it has it's own personality and style. Unique to most other condominiums, Playa Blanca has a tile bathtub in the master bath, offering a ocean view from the tub/shower! The spacious master bedroom has a large louvered window, which can open up to have a view out to the sea, or be closed for privacy. The second bedrooms enjoy garden views and their own Mexican tiled bathroom with a walk in shower. Enjoy preparing meals in the full kitchen or dine out at many of the fabulous restaurants, which are with-in walking distance of this property. Maid service is 6 times a week and there is a small convenience store nearby. Beach towels, if not provided by the owner, can be checked out at the management office. And, for your peace of mind, Playa Blanca has a security guard.

In Spanish, Playa Blanca means "white beach", which is exactly what awaits you on Half Moon Bay in Akumal, Mexico. Each of the one or two bedroom/bathroom condos have a spectacular view of Half Moon Bay and the Caribbean. The white sandy beach and crystal clear water are just steps away.
The living and dining areas are separated by and eating bar, from the open kitchen which has a refrigerator, gas stove, microwave oven, and several small appliances. The master suite includes a king size bed, and a large tub with a shower. The second bedroom, with it's own entrance and bath (and two or three beds) can be added to make a two bedroom unit. The master bedroom has folding doors that can open wide to add to the wonderful airflow and view.

Watch for turtles swimming in the Bay from your patio! A four-minute walk to the north will take you to Yalku Lagoon, for some of the finest snorkeling on the coast. A ten-minute walk to the south will put you in the heart of quaint Akumal Bay.

Enjoy other nearby activities; scuba diving, sport fishing, wind surfing, horseback riding, restaurants, shopping, cultural shows, or just leisurely days on the beach.

After renting Playa Blanca for many years, we were delighted with the changes this year. We were also thrilled that the construction (noise) was non existent.

We have visited Akumal many times, this is the first time we have stayed in Playa Blanca. We all loved Playa Blanca! The beach was just an extension of the condo. It was great to be able to walk right out the door and snorkel in Half Moon Bay. We read, napped and ate on the beach, relaxing either in the sun or shade. Playa Blanca #3 is light, bright and airy. Folding doors from the master bedroom open out to the living area and to the beach, such a beautiful and relaxing view. The kids had their own space at the back of the condo, so we all had plenty of room. The staff was friendly and helpful. I have to admit, everyone used the wireless internet some, it was nice to be able to stay in touch with those back home. We even watched the TVs one night - and it helped us learn Spanish with the subtitles - educational TV!

We had a wonderful time this past March and highly recommend Playa Blanca & Caribbean Fantasy. We have stayed in several condos on Half Moon Bay, and Playa Blanca is one of our favorites. We'll send our friends to you, and see you soon to book our next trip to Akumal!

We had Playa Blanca #4 and #6 for a family trip this year(our 6th to Akumal) and both condos were wonderful. This was the first time we used Caribbean Fantasy and we found them fantastic. We recommended it to friends who are going in August. Thank you so much for a great time!
