We are definitely coming back to this charming hotel next time we come to Playa del Carmen. We loved it. The bar was fantastic, the pool was great, the staff were great, the resident cats were nice to have around as my husband and I are both animal lovers. And we absolutely loved that it was so near to everything... More

We didn't want to stay in a big resort; Luna Blue was exactly what we were looking for. The hotel is small, quiet, cute, and comfortable, and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The little touches made us feel like this was so much more than just another hotel, and the bar and pool downstairs were relaxed and so... More

Luna Blue Hotel is a small hotel right off 5th Ave. It's very quiet and very peaceful there. Only a 1/2 a block away from 5th Ave so close enough to walk to restaurants and shops and the beach! We rented two of the Tropical Hideaway rooms which had a patio attached overlooking the garden and pool area. The rooms... More

After 7 years since my last visit to Playa del Carmen, our stay at the Luna Blue was consistently wonderful. We lucked out and got a Garden View Deluxe (with kitchen). This is by far my favorite room since it ample space, a gas stove, coffee maker, medium sized fridge and a kitchen sink. It truly feels like a jr.... More

Just returned from Playa Del Carmen and was not pleased with the horrible mildew smell in the Luna Blue rooms. Actually were in 2 rooms and both were mildewie. There was black mildew on the shower curtain, and n the blender. The water bottle dispenser and air conditioners need to be sanitized as well. We went to Walmart and unloaded... More

It’s always upsetting to us when a guest has an issue with his or her room. It is especially upsetting when we hear nothing about the issue until the guest has left and posted a review on the internet. There are very few problems that can’t be quickly resolved during a guest’s stay, as long as they are brought to... More

18 Unit lush oasis close to all beaches, shops and restaurants. American owned award winning boutique hotel and it earns them. Don't go there if you want all the bells and whistles of a Ritz Carlton.

What a wonderful 5 days spent at the Luna Blue Hotel, a little tropical oasis off the hustle and bustle of 5th Avenue. From the very moment we walked through the gate, I realized this would be the perfect place to spend our week in Playa. From cooling off in the refreshing pool listening to the sound of the waterfall,... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel during out stay on the Yucatan. We were advised by others to avoid Cancun and to go for Playa del Carmen. This place is right off 5th Avenue. You can't go wrong. You couldn't ask for a more friendly and charming place and staff. Rooms were great. If you have a rental car,... More
