Playa del Carmen is a popular tourist town with the crowded and noisy 5th Avenue at its heart, at least for visitors. Remarkable that in the centre of this car-free street, the Hotel Lunata provide an oasis of calm. With only 12 rooms, the staff were charming and remarkably helpful to small requests. The room was lovely and comfortable, with... More

We stayed here on the second leg of our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. In fact, given the stench of the beaches in Playa Del Carmen, we were so happy that our room was away from the beach! Although this hotel is right on the main drag of busy-ness in town, we felt well insulated. The rooms have lovely... More

We stayed at a resort 3 nights and 2 nights at Lunata. this gave us the best of two worlds, and also helps in the pocket book. For a good... More

My husband and I spent a couple of extra days here before heading to our timeshare after seeing it last year. It's location is great in Playa with access to many restaurants, the beach, and shopping. While the rooms are a bit dated, they are definitely clean and it is noisy even in the back rooms. Orthopedic beds are VERY... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this great hotel in the heart of PDC for 12 nights in Nov’14. I had previously stayed here for two 3-nights stints in early ’14 and was so impressed that I decided to book here again. I won’t rehash all the things I mentioned in my previous 5-start review as anyone who is... More

My spouse and I spent a week at Hotel Lunata. It's in an excellent location, right on 5th Ave and 1 block from the beach. Beautiful hotel and the staff are fantastic. Daniella was outstanding and was warm, welcoming, and extremely knowledgable about Playa and the surrounding area. We have traveled all around the world and have yet to have... More

We were visiting a friend in Cozumel and decided to tour Xcaret and Chichen Itza. Rather than spend extra time running back and forth on the ferry, we decided to get a hotel for 2 nights. We ended up staying at the Hotel Lunata, in the Calypso room. An absolutely quaint place to stay. It has all the amenities most... More

Wanted to be city center after a week out at the fancy inclusive resort so I chose Hotel Lunata based on internet searches. The hotel is as central as you can get, the rooms are clean and spacious with great tile and woodwork, the back garden is fantastic. I can't imagine a hotel staff in the area being more friendly...

The hotel is right on the 5th avenue, with all shops and restaurant. The hotel is nice and with good average between price and location. Unfortunately my room was facing the 5th avenue instead of the garden, I would recommend to book a room with garden view as the other side is noisy by evening/night time (even if you will... More

Beautiful place. A secret oasis with beautiful gardens in the middle of the busy 5th Ave. Friendly staff & super centric. We stayed for only a night with my husband an daughter and we really enjoyed it. Great stay!
