Such a sweet place to stay, simple without being basic, has everything you need with helpful staff and a welcoming environment. The rooms are spacious with good beds and large showers, air conditioning and ceiling fans as well as cool thick walls to keep the heat at bay. The patio rooftop is a great place to socialise and hand out.... More

Probably my 5th year going back to this place and it's always perfect! Steady and reliable quality and service every time. Clean and cozy rooms, fresh drinking water at all times, all the amenities and appliances you need and great personal service. If you need help planning day trips or excursions, the owner is always more than helpful and willing... More

The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Tom helped us a lot and indicated all the nice spots to go eat/relax and explore. The room was clean (and cleaned everyday!). Any little problem was fixed on the same day, without any issue.Being in-town, you are close to every local attraction, and my partner and I loved to rent bikes to... More

Bonjour Anabel! Thanks for taking the time to write this fantastic review! I really appreciate the feedback! Breakfast is yummy, I agree! Not only is it yummy, but it is included in the rate-- awesome! I can´t name another hotel that has their breakfast included and I don´t mean coffee or stale/frozen baked goods. Some hotels in Tulum have ¨communal... More

The b&b is standard but what makes this place phenomenal is Tom and his staff. While enjoying your delicious breakfast at the rooftop restaurant you're able to pick Tom's brain about anything and everything to see/eat in the area. Pay attention to the Map in your room and try and visit as many of the recommended restaurants as possible.

It´s easy for one to return home and forget to leave a review, when life kicks back in! You are right, I love having my brain picked. I have really gathered more info than probably anybody in...

This is hotel is NOT for those who want to cower behind a gated all-inclusive complex with other Americans. You came to Mexico to be with people you see everyday at home??? Not me. This hotel IS a budget (not a dirty word) accommodation in a working-class town with great local dining options. People have commented before so I won't... More

Hola Frank! Thanks for your review, much appreciated! Thanks for your positive feedback on your experience. We are a budget hotel, I agree. I also agree that it is not a dirty thing to be a budget hotel, especially in expensive Tulum! This year, we actually won the ¨Best Bargain¨ award, voted by the Trip Advisor community and display the... More

If you want to experience culture, stay in Tulum town and STAY AT THIS HOTEL. First of all, Tulum town is not commercialized at all and all the businesses are small and run by families. It's one strip of a street, and the Posada Luna Del Sur is in a wonderful location, easily accessible by the ADO bus and one... More

The hotel was well prepared for our arrival;the room was comfortable with a California King Size bed, with a relaxing patio outside in the garden; the service was excellent as were the breakfasts with significant varieties of food. Having Tom, the owner live in the hotel is a significant advantage, with great advice and helpfulness, although the map he provides... More

Hi Anton, Thanks for your review, it is much appreciated. I thrilled you enjoyed your overall stay! However, I feel like I must address a few things. Inaccuracies, if you will. The map I have provided, which is constantly praised as a helpful tool, is just that. It is something I made with passion to help assist you on your... More

We had a great stay at Posada Luna del Sur. This is a basic hotel, but with a lot of attention to detail. The rooms were clean, large and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, and Tom's advice on where to eat in Tulum were spot on! If you'd like to experience a Mexican town life rather than a beach life,... More

This B&B is just lovely!! The rooms are large and clean and airy (you'll need AC, but they have it). The breakfasts are very good. Too good! The price is incredible--especially given that a full breakfast is included. The staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. The owner's son (15 mo. old) and wife make occasional visits to the breakfast... More
