“Best atmosphere in Tulum”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

I rarely write reviews, but this place was incredible. Best beach, best people, best atmosphere by far. Luke and Iris were incredible hosts and the establishment runs the most honest operation I've ever encountered in Mexico (they found me to return money that they, not I, realized had been overcharged). I visited most of the swankier places in Tulum for dining, and at each thought to myself how pleased I was to be staying at La Luna. It had the best feeling overall.

Stayed in Marco Polo's Journey and Villa Shanti in August. The place is spectacular.

We chose these cabanas just looking at comments on trip advisor e Now We can Say that was the right choice!
Luke and all the staff were always ready to every our request.
We were a group of 8 people from italy and We booked jungle penthouse and anaother cabana that was just few metres from the sea...fantastic!
The food was very good too and Also the restaurant was so special at night.
This is the place that we'd choose if cane back in tulum without any doubt!

We booked Villa Zanzibar for 7 nights and it was PERFECT. There were six adults and two children. This Villa has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, an outdoor living/dining area and it's own private pool. A pool was key since the kids LIVE in the water and the ocean is not always feasible. This is my third trip to Tulum in four years. La Luna is perfect due to its size (small), large staff and whimsical feel. Having a kitchen at our disposal was key since Tulum is the most expensive tourist destination in Mexico. The food and drink at all of the great funky out door restaurants and bars are pricey. Having a place to make dinner and snacks for the ever hungry kids was important. August is a great time to go because it's cheaper and the giant turtles come to shore to lay their eggs. We saw them every night! The staff was great! Very helpful and friendly. We will definitley stay at La Luna again - we are even thinking of going back in a few months... :-) Seattle

We stayed at the biggest cabin by the beach and it was awesome. The great thing about hurricane season is that the rates are low and the wind is constant and much needed, so we spent some quality time on the porch swinging on a hammock and having breakfast delivered every morning. The cabins that are further back don't get as much wind so be wary of those as it can get hot and sticky without the constant winds.

The service was great, as is typical in most of Tulum. The food was also great and their fish tacos kick it up a notch with coconut sauce.

The one area I wish was better are the mattresses. This seems to be a constant at remote hotels around the world; stiff, merciless things. The first few days I woke up with a stiff back and I considered more than once sleeping outside in the hammock. Other than that, no complaints; I really liked this place.

Stayed October 2011, travelled with friends

Read so many reviews before booking this place as it was important to get this trip perfect, and glad to say it has been. Cabanas La Luna is lovely! We're staying here at the moment in the Marrakech cabana - highly recommended.
Staff - fantastic: warm & friendly and helpful
Grounds & cabana/room - perfect: so serene and can feel like you're the only ones here. Feels very down with nature and peaceful.
Beach - rugged at the moment but still great for several swims a day.
Restaurant - very tasty and good quality. Coffee is not too flash though, but I think it's standard for American style coffee.
Tips:
Go to the Tulum ruins and swim at the beach there;
Go for fish tacos down the road in the village area across from the beach (jungle side) - sign says best fish tacos on earth and yes they're pretty good;
Go to Zamas restaurant further down the beach toward town. They had live Latin music on the Friday night when we were there;
La Estrellas at Cabanas La Luna has great food & is a delightful spot for dinner too.
Mosquitos are around but not outrageous at the moment - just gotta be smart about things. Put your bed netting down just before sundown, burn the coils they give you by your door etc - this was a concern for me but we haven't had any probs.

My husband, two daughters and I had another great and relaxing (barring the one day we did have to evacuate due to Hurricane Ernesto) time at La Luna. We can't say enough about the natural beauty of the area and the comfortably funky La Luna is perfect for us. Yes it can feel a bit like 'glamping' by the end of your week, but the quiet, the comforts of the beach beds, the amazing sky, the miles of beach to walk, the fabulous food and drink at Las Estrellas--all make it such a memorable experience. Plus, we love to body surf and had many great days of that activity again. We also can't say enough good things about the staff, many of whom were there when we visited 2 years ago: Quamie, Reuben, Cesar, Oscar and Jose--you are all wonderful and make La Luna that much more special with your great service and wonderful attitudes.
Don't miss Sunday night salsa at La Zebra. Lunch and dinner at Las Estrellas--might have been the best food in Tulum!

We stayed at La Luna in Oct. 2010 for our anniversary. Can't say enough good things about it. We stayed in Chris. Columbus, which is right near the beach. The only other room we could see was to our left, so it really felt like our own private beach. We went in the off season and the rates were very reasonable. The cabanas are more on the rustic side - if you are looking for 4 or 5 star, go up the beach to an all-inclusive. The staff was awesome - they were there when you needed them, otherwise they kept a low profile. The food was hit or miss, but they have since improved the restaurant so I'm sure the food is wonderful. The cabana was rustic and romantic - we could see the sunrise over the water while lying in bed. The remnants of hurricane Richard (by then tropical storm Richard) came through Tulum and the cabana never leaked and we felt very safe. We are counting the days until we can come back.

Room Tip: If you're going as a couple, stay in one of the smaller rooms (Chris Columbus or Crusoe).
