“It was great .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We stayed for two weeks and the room was very clean and the breakfast was good,all the staff were great the hotel is just off the main street so if your a light sleeper bring ear plugs as the traffic noise might keep you awake ,and if your a sound sleeper you will miss out on the roosters at 5 o,clock in the morning trying to wake you now that was kind of cool , I would stay here again but it would have been nice if there was a pool thats one thing we missed.

My husband and I stayed at Posada Luna del Sur for 7 days and it was the perfect spot for us. We chose Tulum because we wanted a beautiful but smaller, more authentic location and that description fits this hotel as well. The room was a great size, with a large couch, bed and kitchen area. While we didn't utilize the kitchen to the best of it's ability (we ate out everyday because we loved all the local cuisine), it was great to have just in case you wanted to store or prepare simple food items. The bottled water provided was much appreciated for drinking and brushing teeth. We had breakfast every morning on the rooftop and it was a perfect way to start the day; the service was extremely friendly and all the meals were fresh and delicious. The location of the hotel was ideal for us, walking distance to all the great stores, restaurants and bars in town. With the map that Tom provides and all his recommendations (which you can get anytime, he was readily available during and after breakfast before we left for the day), you know the best places to go for everything. Taxis to and from the beach were easy and affordable, you probably only need a rental if you want to take extended day trips. Overall, we had a fabulous time and are extremely happy we trusted the great reviews on Tripadvisor....Tom, thank you for the great stay (and the wine)!

My brother and I stayed here for 9 days, this hotel is a one-of-a-kind experience! The hotel is in great shape inside and out, that rooftop palapa is AWESOME. The service is excellent from the breakfast staff, to the spa, cleaning, maintenance, security. Tom really helped us have a personalized experience in Tulum, all of his suggestions were spot on! The location is a little further down 307, but everything in Tulum is within a reasonable walking distance or a super cheap taxi. The beds are slightly firmer than I normally prefer but after a long day exploring the city I had no problems sleeping like a rock every night, even if the rest of the city wasn't ready to go to bed ;) Highly recommend staying here!

This is a lovely, spotless, comfortable and marvellous hotel where your every need is provided for by thoughtful planning. The rooms are large, carefully planned, with seating and kitchen areas, furnished with large fridge and 20-litre bottled water dispenser, gas stove, microwave and sink, so guests can prepare their own meals (with careful instructions as to how to avoid attracting ants)- and beach towels, chairs in outdoor patio, air conditioning and ceiling fan, well-provided bathroom. The pleasure of the cool crisp sheets on the bed and refrigerated water in your room! The roof terrace offers very comfortable seating under shade with WiFi access where you can sit and read or and listen to the neighbours singing and the birds chirping. Tom is available to offer all manner of help: without his guidance we would not have known how to access the beach, since there is hardly any waterfront visible through the thicket of hotel entrances. Non-residents can just enter one of these entrances, buy drinks and rent a lounger. Hints on what to do, where to go and where to eat were also really useful. His recommendations for locations beyond Tulum were also great. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts spectacular, well worth paying for. This is an exceptional place to stay, to be comfortable and relaxed in a funky little town in a spectacular location.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor. It's possible that guests having breakfast on the roof terrace a...

This Hotel really is a special place. You will enjoy your stay.

My wife, and I stayed at Posada Luna del Sur for four days. We were exploring Tulum while returning to Canada through Cancun after an extended stay in Belize. This is a very nice, very clean Hotel. The location is convenient to restaurants, shopping, bars, and still very quiet, and serene.
The rooms are well appointed with everything you could want ... Kitchenette, Cable TV, King size Bed, a little sitting area on a pretty little court yard. Everything was clean, and well kept.

The hotel has a great sitting area, restaurant on the roof, and has free wi-fi up there too. It is a great place to sit and have breakfast, and afternoon beer ( from your fridge ) , or evening coffee after a day at the beach. The staff, are very good, very polite, and good at what they do.

The owner lives right at the hotel, and is a fantastic resource for finding out which beach to go to, where to eat, what tours to go on. He can suggest, or arrange what ever it is you would like. This hands on management, care, and service makes this great little Hotel a very special place.

As we go back and forth from Canada to Belize we will now be making Posada Luna del Sur a regular stop.

You will enjoy your stay here.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the ground floor, as it opens on to a nice little courtyard great for coffee in the morni...

Nice, clean, large room with our own filtered water tank and fridge! It's a short walk to everything in town (restaurants, stores, etc.). We ran into the owner once, who was very pleasant and friendly, and his map of local recommendations was really helpful and great to have. There's a nice space to hang out on the top floor with travel books and couches, and our room had its own little balcony. Only missing a star because I think breakfast should be included for the price -- we stayed a lot of places for a similar price in the Yucatan/Riviera Maya that did include breakfast. I would definitely stay here again and enjoyed my time at Posada Luna del Sur.

I recently stayed at Posada Luna del Sur for the second time this year and I cannot wait to go back! I love everything about Tulum and Gareth's quaint, cozy and super clean hotel. Tulum is a place where you shut out the busy money chasing life that many of us are accustomed to and just take in the amazing mexican experience and chill. Posada Luna is a small ride away from the jaw dropping beautiful beach and the town has wicked eats and cute little bars. Posada has all you need! Comfy big beds, AC, wifi access on the patio, wicked breakfasts, friendly staff and the man that knows everything good about Tulum, Gareth. He helps all his guests out, sets you up with the places that really need to be seen whether it's a true chilled out mexican experience (his specialty) or where the hyper hipsterati hang out. Posada Luna del Sur has become my Mexican pied a terre. I cant wait to go back!!!
