Playa Blanca #1 , #1 in all aspects

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect fit for our travel desires.The photos on the website were very acturate there were no surprises, we got everything that we were expecting and much more.The location was beautiful, white sand, palm trees and the ocean just feet from our patio. The condo was lovely, very clean and comfortable with lots of extra homey touches, and since we love to cook it was important the kitchen had everything we needed, which it did. The management company was very professional, we had a minor problem with the microwave and they had it replaced in a few hours. The daily maid service was a treat. We loved our trip and have already told our friends and family of our find. Looking forward to a return visit hopefully soon. The snorkeling was fun in both the nearby lagoon and ocean. The ruins at Tulum were fasinating and if you have time check out the ruins at Caba as well, hire a guide there is so much that does not meet the eye, well worth the few extra dollars. The shops and restaurants in Akumal were great, but if you have a chance go into Tulum about a 20 minute drive south, you will find great local food, fish and veggie markets, restuarants and shopping, the local flavor is wonderful. And if you are cooking the grocery stores are bigger in Tulum and one can easily find everything needed to stock your pantry. If relaxing in the sun at a leisurely pace is what you want in a vacation, this is the ticket.

Amazing ten steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Playa Blanca. We were two adults and five kids ages 10-16 and we had lots of room. The condo has everything you need to cook and make frosty drinks. There is a big fridge in the kitchen and a little fridge in the back bedroom. Being on the ground floor was the best part of the condo. In the morning while the kids were still sleeping, we could open up the patio doors and drink our coffee on the beach, while the sun was rising. Absolutely beautiful! I also loved being only ten steps to my comfortable lounge chair and having a fridge with cool drinks. Better than fighting for a chair at any all inclusive!

The second best part of this condo is the snorkelling. If you love to snorkel than stay here. If you want clear, rock free and walk for miles beach than this is not the place for you. The beach is rocky so make sure to wear shoes. Our kids were fine. If you walk just two minutes north along the beach there is a bit of a clear spot with less rocks. Go straight out from there and you will be in ten feet of crystal clear water. We have dove and snorkeled in many countries and the snorkelling here was really amazing, lots of coral, lots of schools of fish, stingrays and a few turtles. Our kids loved it and we snorkeled everyday for hours!

Marilu was also amazing to communicate with and will help you with anything you need to have a good trip. I would highly recommend staying at Playa Blanca and can't wait to return.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming property in a beautiful location. The condo is clean and well-maintained. The onsite staff are friendly and helpful. You can rent snorkel gear from them. Yal-Ku Lagoon, Akumal Bay, and good restaurant and shopping choices, are all in walking distance. We had a rental car, but it really wasn't necessary. Snorkeling with the turtles in Akumal Bay was the absolute highlight. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Playa Blanca. We were a party of 2 couples and the condo was exactly what we were looking for. Very clean and comfortable. From our patio the ocean was just a few steps across the beautiful white sand. Don't forget to bring your mask and snorkel! The snorkeling in Moon Bay was awesome. We saw a ton of colorful fish and a few turtles. Bring your water shoes too. The beach was a nice and quite and with the empty lot beside the condo, there was lots of privacy. Marilu was a great help in assisting us through the booking process and getting all the information that we needed for places to go for groceries, shopping and excursions. We highly recommend Playa Blanca!

Thank you Marilu for all your help and a wonderful stay :)

BETTER THAN I EVEN THOUGHT IT WOULD BE

  • 5 of 5

This condo was terrific and I'm sure we'll come back. The photos on the listing were absolutely accurate in every way. It really does open up right onto a beautiful beach, which was raked and cleaned every morning. The lay-out of the condo was great for two couples. We loved the patio right on the beach. The daily maid service was a surprise, and made the vacation seem even more luxurious. The nearby Buena Vida restaurant is excellent--we ate there 5 times. During our stay, the water in front of the condo was a bit rough for snorkeling, although we did it. However, the snorkeling at nearby Yal-ku Lagoon was delightful. In a short drive or reasonable walking distance, there is super homemade ice cream at Lucy's (Turtle Bay Restaurant). The overall location is good for day trips to the ruins at Tulum and Coba. We also spent a day at Xel-ha, which was well-worth the high entry fee.

I enjoyed very much staying at Playa Blanca. Very clean, nice location, close to the water. Snorkeling right outside our door was fabulous. Any questions or concerns we had were taken care of immediately by the staff. It was an easy walk into Akumal for groceries, restaurants, and dive shop so we did not need to rent a car. Some of the family went to Xel Ha for a day and loved it. We used the grill and enjoyed it, (attracted the neighbors.) Best part was the beach guy cleaned it for us the next day. We tipped of course. I would highly recommend staying here and would do it again if the opportunity came up.
