It's hard to resist the white sands and turquoise water of Tulum during the dead of winter in the north. A friend and I headed back to one of our favorite beach towns and the delightful Posada Luna Del Sur. As usual this nicely designed sweet hotel exceeded our expectations. Tom, the owner/manager constantly puts a great deal of thought... More

I would highly recommend this hotel. It was made all the better as the owner (Tom) is the man and was extremely helpful. He gave some terrific recommendations for food and we experienced a very different side to Tulum. I would recommend staying at least one or two nights here before being lured to the beach for the rest of... More

What a lovely experience we have had in this boutique hotel/b&b. I'd recommend this place highly for the hospitality from all the staff. Breakfast was more than adequate in a calm setting of the rooftop. Tom was great with his spot on tips on local stuff with his customised map. It's obvious that a lot of work and love has... More

We stayed at this place for two nights. I am not sure how are other hotels in the same area in this range. We decided to stay in town but the experience was disappointing. Not because of its location, which is quiet enough, but because of its amenities. There was a stale air and musty smell when we entered the... More

HI CrisVal, Thanks for your input, however this was written from a 2 day stay; not enough time to formulate a fair opinion or judgement. I´m pretty sure you chose our lodging based on our fantastic reviews and our price. I can be certain it was the latter though, as nobody touches our price/quality ratio in all of Tulum. For... More

My wife and I were in Tulum in January. This is our second visit to the area and the second time staying at the Posada Luna del Sur. We were there for 11 days and enjoyed our stay. The Posada is in town and one feels a part of the ebb and flow of the life of the town. It's... More

Pros: Location in the town, so it’s easy to stroll around in the evening, and it’s close to a great restaurant. Tom, the owner, is super personable, enthusiastic, and helpful. He provides a great map with recommendations for restaurants and the locations of places and activities. He will accommodate an early departure with an early breakfast. The Mexican breakfast is...

We are disappointed with your opinion, but you are definitely entitled to one, although it comes across very scrupulous for a one night stay (guest slept in the room for 8 hours then checked out early in the morning--hardly enough time to formulate such a negative opinion). Our check-in time is a globally recognized time of 3PM. Most hotels in... More

We were on a recent reconnaissance trip to Tulum so we wanted to stay in town as opposed to one of the resorts at the beach. We decided on Posada Luna del Sur and we were not disappointed. The hotel is small but the rooms are large so that you feel like you have a small suite. Tom Evans, the... More

After reading on the reviews on Trip Advisor I decided to book my stay there and wasn't disappointed. This small boutique is simply charming with it's rooftop lounge, balcony rooms, and ideal downtown location. Tom is the best! He provided a customized map with recommendations that were spot on.

As always Tom is there to greet you with a big smile. He makes sure that you have everything that you need to feel at home.

My husband and I stayed at Posada Luna del Sur on our recent trip to Tulum. The place is very simple, no frills- but has everything you need to be comfortable.

Thank you so much for your kind and honest review! We really think we are one of the more ¨nicer¨ hotels in town. We are by far no way near luxurious, but never claim to be-- we are simple and clean, but offer quality materials at a budget price. Most of our mattresses are high quality Serta Pefect Sleeper mattresses... More
