“Excellent location and exceptional hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Alberto and Karla are great hosts and very accommodating. Let us borrow snorkel mask and fins, beach towels, and cooler during our stay. Arranged our day trip for us; we went via boat with a local fisherman to Isla Coronado.

Location is a block from the malecon (boardwalk) and beach. 5 minute stroll to the plaza (town square) where there are many places to eat. Walking distance to anything in Loreto Centro. Overall the hotel is in an excellent location.

The hotel provides free chilled drinking water which was great because we simply refilled our water bottles instead of having to go out and buy bottles of water (saved us quite a bit of money!).

Room: good water pressure, modern and quiet a/c unit , we chose to not get our sheets exchanged and room cleaned daily which saved us 50 pesos per night.
We made full use of patio area which has tables chairs and patio recliners. We sipped on cold Mexican beer in the warm evenings in this cozy space.

During our 5 night stay we met some fellow guests of Hotel Luna and had breakfast with one couple and shared drinks one evening with a different group. The vibe created by Alberto, Karla and the hotel is one of community and friendliness.

[A bit of a tangent but we really loved our tour to isla Coronado mainly due to our guide I mentioned above. His name is Don Alvaro, his boat is Sylvia IV at the marina and he is a local native of Loreto. He was raised as a fisherman on that coast line and has a deep and passionate affection for the ecological preservation efforts of the marine park. He showed us the sea lion preserve and pointed out manta rays swimming alongside the boat. He also has a keen eye and intuition for the wildlife and managed to identify a large group of dolphins swimming in the water. We went out to where they were and had a once-in-a-lifetime experience having the dolphins swim near the boat (see pics I uploaded!). Don Alvaro uses his panga (boat) primarily for sportfishing excursions but he is also very knowledgable about the preservation efforts of the marine wildlife in the area.]

Paying is made simple with PayPal. Hotel Luna does not take credit cards but Alberto has Paypal which made the transaction a snap for me on my iPhone.

Gracias Alberto and Karla for the wonderful experience, we will be sharing with all of our friends!

Room Tip: Save 50 pesos a night for being eco-friendly and choosing to re-use your towels!

We stayed here 3 nights in early July 2012. Very clean and comfortable A/C rooms at a good price. Alberto is always there to give recommendations about sightseeing and especially knows very good restaurants in the region. Wonderful the boat trip with him to Coronado island

Hotel Luna is a nice place to stay in Loreto. We spent 2 nights there. It is close from both the malecon and the main square. The room we stayed in was nicely decorated and comfortable. The owner is sympathetic and attentive to his guests' needs. All his advices are very useful. He helped us to find a boat to join the isla Coronada and lent to us his own snorkelling material. This was certainly one of the best day of our trip.

My husband and I spent three nights in Loreto in January 2012 and were so happy with our accommodations at Luna Hotel. Our stay got off to a rocky start when I left one of my suitcases in the shuttle van that dropped us off at Luna. Our host, Alberto, was so gracious -- he drove me to the airport to wait for the shuttle to return so I could fetch my suitcase. Our room was immaculate, very spacious and quiet. The bed was comfy, and the room included a luggage rack, closet area, shelves, TV, air conditioner, big shower and seating area. There's also a small side patio with a purified water dispenser. The location is great -- just a block from the malecon and walking distance to the plaza, lots of restaurants, shops and the big supermarket.

Alberto's got a bar upstairs -- the Eclipse -- which is sometimes open on weekends. The bar was wonderful and Alberto makes a FABULOUS margarita!

Alberto kindly welcomed us to stay with our pup in our room (we brought his own bed and blanket). The room was clean and comfortable (ooh down comforter for cold winter nights!), with a festive modern decor. There were also perks like a hair dryer, great wi-fi connection, and a lounge area in the room. We were traveling with surfboards and dive equipment, so Alberto graciously allowed us to park in his secure, private lot. Thank you, Alberto for a lovely stay! We'll be back next time we are in Loreto!

Swiss born Alberto opened up Hotel Luna with his wife six years ago after deciding to settle in the area. The few rooms available are also accompanied by a small rooftop bar which Alberto opens each evening from 5:00pm. The stone walls gave our room a slightly cold feel and although extremely clean, constantly felt a little dark, despite the abundance of lights. The comfortable little sofa area opposite the bed was a nice touch though and overall we felt very settled there for the few days we were in town.

There's no breakfast included but Alberto recommends heading to the nearby La Lolita restaurant open from 7:00am, which we would also suggest. Not exactly authentic Mexican, but the French toast, raspberries and cream are great, as are the sandwiches if you're there for lunch.

Alberto also runs boat trips out to the nearby island to see the colony of sea lions and visit the secluded beaches for snorkelling and relaxing. It's a small boat though for a max of three passengers, so be prepared to be bounced around as we were if the ocean is a little choppy.

There are some very grand and expensive looking hotels in town, which don't exactly compliment the quaint, charming surroundings, so if you're looking for a friendly, no frills place to base yourself for a couple of days then Casa Luna offers just that. There's also a $50 peso per night discount if you decide you don't need your room cleaned.
