Luna y Mares is a wonderful vacation destination on the spectacular Playa Esmerelda. What makes this hotel exceptional is its staff and new manager. The rooms are basic but very clean with great views. Any issues with equipment or furniture are seen to promptly. Our air conditioning unit was replaced without fuss when it malfunctioned. The choice of restaurants is... More

Grounds are still beautiful and cannot complain about the food if you like sea food, but overall quality went down from previous years. There is a very small selection of seafood vs. past, only 2-4 types of fishes and... More
