Mayan Riviera Villa Rental Areas

We're hoping to rent a villa in Mexico for 10 (adults and kids). Can anyone help me with the areas? Playa del Carmen seems great, but it's hard to find a place on the beach that's big enough for us. Is Playa del Carmen so great that I should stay there even if the house isn't on the beach? Is Playa Paraiso too isolated? Is Akumal too far? I'd love info on these and any other areas.

Thanks!

I just googled: "4 bedroom villa" "playa del carmen"

Several website came up. Some even over 4+ bedrooms and are on the beach. Here's one with a few listings www.villasplayadelcarmen.com/rent_4bed.html

Akumal is where most of the nicest villa rentals are -- it's not very far from PDC or the airport. A cute little town. If you all rent a car, it's an easy place to base yourself.
locogringo.com has tons of gorgeous places.

Thanks everyone.
The Akumal villas look great. Any advice on the different parts of Akumal?

I tried Googling for PdC villas, but it turns out none of the PdC villas are actually on the beach. (I guess "oceanfront" doesn't mean "beachfront.") I'm sure there are villas on a sandy beach in PdC, but I can't find them.

Thanks again, and I'm still open to more advice.
