We stayed at the Posada Luna Del Sur hotel in Feb at the recommendation of a friend who had previously visited the area. I believe the hotel has several things going for it even though it is not right on the beach. First off, it is not right on the beach. Sure it can be nice hearing the waves crash... More

The staff doesn't really speak English, but they are nice enough so you get to communicate somehow. The owner Tom has a good taste of food and gave us the map for restaurants at Tulum. We found the Taco place on the map very good and found out next morning that it was the same chef who makes breakfast for... More

Tom's service and staff are exceptional. Nice rooms that are comfortable and spacious. Great breakfast and the best map/ guide in all of Tulum. If you want to book any outings or activities go through Tom. His contacts and recommendations are vetted and excellent. Tom's only agenda is that you have a good time. He is never trying to sell...

Posada Luna del Sur is the perfect place to spend time in Tulum. My wife and I stayed here for about three days after staying at a five star resort in the Playa Del Carmen area. It is an outstanding value. (especially during high season when you get free breakfast) Moreover, we thoroughly enjoyed staying in the city centre. Our... More

We've been visiting Tulum for years, and have truly found at home at Posada Luna Del Sur! It's tucked away on a quiet street at the end of Tulum, but an arms length away from amazing food and drink options that line the main road of Tulum. The rooms are clean, spacious, and every detail is considered. The real reason... More

Its not fair! I am now back home and in need of yet another visit to this Posada and Tulum... This place just so suits us. So clean, friendly, welcoming and the breakfast is sublime. I prefer staying away from the beach so I can wander around the pueblo visiting the lovely bars, restaurants, and enjoying the general activity.. Tom... More

This hotel is a treasure of Tulum and of the whole region. The owner and staff are kind, helpful, and welcoming. It is a great deal. We were a little overwhelmed when we got off the bus from cancun into the center of town, with some construction and bustling local town feel. The hotel has a peaceful feel in the... More

Our lovely Posada just gets better and better each year! Couldn't imagine staying anywhere else! I really recommend as a change from being on the beach. Tulum is such a nice small town, with great atmosphere and plenty of good bars and restaurants. We go to the beach most days, but there's so much more to do, and the pueblo... More

This is my third time back to posada. I've stayed on the beach and it was ok. The places on the beach are way expensive and don't have the amenities or ambience. Posada is an amazing place because the staff is amazing. As we were arriving Tom greeted us with a "welcome back", and that to me kickstarted an amazing... More

Choosing to stay at Posada Luna del Sur was the beginning of a perfect vacation. The staff was accommodating and hard working- the rooms were always clean and comfy.

Hello Emma! Thanks so much for the review, what a great review-- spot on about everything. It is always great to have a fellow Texan swing by my little posada! I agree, the town and the hotel are two different beasts. I do believe the beach is gorgeous and I DO enjoy it during the day. However, I would advise... More
