My wife and I stayed @ Cabanas La Luna after travelling through Guatemala and Belize on our Honeymoon. This was perfect for us after the travelling. We booked last minute and was actually surprised to have a room and the manager was efficient and excellent arranging this for us via email - as we had limited wifi and signal in Belize.
We we welcomed by a very friendly staff team and got to know them all well. I must point out that Oscar and Caesar were fantastic hosts and their customer service is first class! Caesar aka Margarita-Man makes the best cocktails. Oscar reserved a seat for us during the Barbecue Night which was a great night. Very attentive staff! One of the most important things for us is getting to know local people and to learn from them. We exchanged English and Spanish with Oscar during our stay and the staff taught us much about Mexico and the local area.
We stayed at Casa Blanca and Columbus cabanas which were absolutely beautiful, and exceeded our expectations. This place is quite unique for the area and we do not like big impersonal hotels. Cabanas La luna is very personal and focuses on the attention to detail to give you the best possible experience. The Cabanas are on the beach and you can hear the waves and nothing else.....
It's a very pretty setting, Very colourful ? Moroccan themed with lanterns etc. in the evening the security and marine biologists patrol the beach which is a protected area for Loggerhead and Green Turtles and they take this very seriously. Tulum is an Eco friendly area.
We had one of our most memorable experiences in the evening and saw in total about 4 female turtles nesting and also hatchlings. My wife helped one into the sea as he was lost (which is why they discourage flash lights as this can distract the baby turtles who are guided by light of the moon reflecting on the sea.
The beach is beautiful and easily the best in the whole of Yucutan. It's so peaceful and pretty.
We have mentioned the food as this will be a separate review of the restaurant Las Estrella's and team. The food here is worthy of a Michelin Star honestly, we were very impressed!
Tulum centre is a taxi trip away and there are many Cenotes in the area. We visited LabnaHa Cenotes which was a great day, but I understand that there are many to choose from. Tulum ruins is a taxi ride away or a brave walk along the beach. We were lucky to experience tropical storm Erin which added to our great trip. There are other restaurants in other hotels, but we ate at Las Estrelas every day and night as the food was consistently to a very high standard. There is a huge supermarket a short taxi trip away also where you can buy most things, it's huge! If travelling up the coast after we recommend Akumal another beautiful beach with clear shallow water and swim with the turtles. We saw lots of huge fish including a massive baracuda and sting rays and most importantly many turtles. They are such peaceful creatures.....From Tulum bus station it is very easy to travel anywhere and the ADO buses are very good.
In a nutshell, stay here and have a great time like we did. We will be back....
