My husband and I read reviews about this hotel months before and after booking it and were still shocked when we saw it. It was beautiful! Check in was simple and quick. We stayed in the room Ariel. It faced 5th ave. We did not have any difficulty with the noise. They have 2 layers of sliding glass doors! The... More

We stayed just one night at Lunata but we really love this hotel. The staff, especially Erica, was wonderful to us and treated us like family. The location is perfect and it was very quiet even though our room overlooked 5th Ave. If you want an alternative to staying on the beach, you cannot beat this hotel.

This hotel is located on 5th Avenue - the main hub of Playa Del Carmen. There are restaurants and clubs right along 5th avenue and a whole lot of shops. The ocean is a short walk away. There are plenty of good places to swim, and the surf was fun I found. The accomodation is very nice indeed, and the... More

Instead of an all inclusive big resort, we decided we'd like to try a Hacienda style hotel in the heart of the restaurants and shops. This hotel was authentic Mexican and had a well kept and very clean feel to it. The complimentary breakfast was in a nice secluded courtyard in the back of the hotel. We were only a... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Lunata for a total of 6 days in late Feb/early March 2014. This consisted of 2 separate 3-night stays in 2 different rooms, both of which I will review below. But first, my non-room-specific observations… Check-in was a breeze, very friendly and helpful staff, especially Erika & Fabiola. I arrived early on... More

After spending the day in playa we decided to stay the night instead of traveling back to our hotel. I had passed my this hotel on my last trip to playa. It's very small, the staff is very friendly. No pool, no thrills but it is in the heart of down town. We stayed in the Pandora room, it's on... More

Lunata is a little hidden gem amongst the hustle and bustle 5th avenue. We were drawn in by the garden which, although only feet away from thousands of pedestrians on 5th avenue, feels like your own private oasis. This garden is beatiful place to enjoy an early evening drink and whilst doing so we saw a number of people 'drawn... More

Right on famous 5th avenue with tons of local artisans and high end retailers you could spend days exploring the area. The rooms are rustic but very clean. Erika was great and pointed us towards the best restaraunts. The continental breakfast could be improved but overall.....a great stay.
