“Luna for you”
Reviewed 5 January 2009

This is our 2nd year staying at Luna Blue and we love it. It is conveniently located from the beach and 5th Ave which is the main pedestrian walkway.

The staff are very nice and the addition of the small bar makes it even better.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Luna Blue over Christmas. Our first night was in a Standard Room which was fine. The second night we moved to the Treetop Terrace Room which was fabulous! The location of the hotel is perfect. The rooms were very clean and the garden area is lovely. Holiday season the rates were high (but it seems they are everywhere during that time) but the price overall is very reasonable. We arrived late in the evening and because we advised them in advance there was no trouble with late check-in. The staff was very helpful in terms of suggesting restaurants, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

We went to PDC for 5 days over christmas break and really enjoyed our stay at Luna Blue. It was < 1 block to 5th avenue where all the action is, but yet being on a side street, you didn't have to deal with all the street noise. It was (as advertised) a short walk to the beach and it was definitely nice having the free use of a beach chair and towel. It's really close to a lot of good places to eat as well.

Tony and Cheri were extremely accomodating and were helpful in telling us fun things to do in the area (btw, a trip to Xel-ha is definitely worth the money)

The rooms were clean and the showers had plenty of hot water. Really, no complaints, it was a nice stay and I would recommend it to travelers who have a budget to work with.

We stayed at the Luna Blue for 4 nights at the end of a long trip round Mexico. It was the perfect end to our holiday and had everything we needed. Great location - close to beach and 5th Ave, very friendly staff, room spacious and clean, shower hot and powerful, good bar. The main thing we liked was that this place had character and wasn't a faceless bland 4/5 star resort like a lot of the other places in Playa del Carmen.

We were able to spend the holidays in Playa and Luna Blue this year. We had a fantastic time! This is our third year in a row at Luna Blue..we enjoy the location, the rooms, the gardens, (now the swing bar), and the employees and owners are the best! On our second night, the owners, Cheri and Tony hosted a holiday party for guests of the hotel. We had a wonderful time enjoying the new swing bar and having a toast with all. In previous years we have done many of the local activities, this year we decided to take it easy and enjoy the beach. We loved the one tour we did, the Mayan Adventure with Alltournative Tours. We went to Coba and Mayan villages, along with other adventures, it was a whole day of fun! This trip, we visted many local great eateries, our favorite this time was La Caprichoza on 5th. We enjoyed the wonderful ceaser salad, flambee and Mayan coffee for dessert, yummy. Another favorite is the "lava bowl" at La Passion next store to Luna Blue. For drinks, we loved the new swing bar and bartender at Luna Blue, another fun place was the "Bad Boys Beach Club" on 4th and the beach. A great band plays on Thursday and Saturdays' at 5PM....Rock n' Roll, lots of fun! We finished our trip on New Years' Eve at the Luna Blue swing bar celebrating with new friends and Cheri and Tony...we will be back again next year!

As repeat visitors to the Luna Blue we are always pleased with everything they have to offer. The lush cool courtyard is a welcome relief after a hot day at the beach.We visited with 4 other couples so the courtyard also served as a great place to gather for happy hour...love the bar (great margaritas too!) It is conveniently located near 5th Ave for
restaurants ,cafes ,sportsbars,banks etc.
We tell everyone about this place and can't wait to go back!

One of my friends that I was traveling with found the Luna Blue on Tripadvisor and booked us a room. We had three women in the room and each of us had our own bed. The air conditioning was a lifesavor! We actually cooked in the kitchen to save a few dollars and hung out on our porch and the roof. The beach was nearby and we had access to a great section as guests at the Luna Blue. While we didn't get to meet the owners, who were traveling, we recieved amazing attention and service from the manager, Genarro. He helped us figure out where to go, when to do it, and how to get there. He helped us find a taxi for a day that took us all over the nearby ruins - and the taxi driver was delightful too. Anytime we needed anything, Genarro took care of it imediately and with a great attitude. He also helped us practice our spanish, though he spoke excellent english. I would recommend this place to anyone trying to travel on a similar budget - great service, great location, and great people.
