“Great Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a really nice little hotel. It is very small (only 3 rooms) so even if they are full, it doesn't feel crowded at all. It is walking distance to "town" so you can get by without having a motor bike if needed. The kitchenette has everything you need for simple breakfasts/lunches. It was very clean and you cannot beat the price and the view! You can literally wake up to the sound of the waves, you really cant get any closer to the ocean. We visited in the offseason and the pool was full and very refreshing. Yes, it is small, but is a great place to cool off and watch the waves crash. Overall, a great place!!

The rooms are spacious, clean, and well taken care of.
The beds are decent.
The girl working at the hotel was AMAZING. So friendly and helpful! She was probably the most positive thing about this hotel!
The room offers a T.V., small safe box, large sliding glass door to the beach, a hammock on the porch, and two lounge chairs. Very cozy. There was also a sink in our room and a microwave.

The beach here is VERY rocky. If you are coming here to swim, you may want to stay on the mainland or on the other side of the island. We did swim here, If you bring water shoes, it is perfectly fine! It is also a nice calm place to snorkel. While there isn't a whole lot to see out there, our neighbors saw sting ray and we saw a pod of dolphins.
If you like collecting seashells this is your beach!!!! Tons of seaglass and shells!!!!!

It is a bit of a walk to the main town on the island, however, it is definitely doable! I'd say it's about 10-15 minutes at a steady, normal pace.
Most people rent golf carts or scooters, the island is tiny so car rental is unnecessary. I'd recommend a golf cart, it's a great value and easy to get around in!


As for Isla Mujeres, I would personally rather have spent the extra day on the main land or go to Cozumel. It is a nice little island for their mexican street vendors, but it is mostly the same on the mainland. Many stray cats and dogs. If you are a sucker for animals, you'll be heart broken.
The food is decent, but a bit pricey for Mexico! We cut our trip short by two days and went back to the mainland.

Room Tip: Each room has a hammock and lounge chairs, there is no pool! Also, the taxi took us to "miel de...

We came here during low season so and were the only ones staying here, felt like we had the entire back ocean to ourselves.

We had to wait for the staff when we got here, they're not always in the office and didn't speak English. But they were friendly and helpful. The place is well maintained, clean, and the location is great. Rocks and sea behind the room, airstrip (not used) and more sea in front. I watched sunrise everymorning.

It's in the middle fo the island, away from the main areas. But taxis are cheap and we rented a scooter, which worked really well for exploring the island.

My husband, 14 year old daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights last winter. We were pleased with how clean it was. It's very simple with no frills. But if you want to be a few steps away from the ocean this is a great place to stay!

You do have to take taxis or plan the 10 - 15 minute walk into town as there is nothing immediately around the inn. But as long as you know that when you make your reservations, it's a lovely place to stay. We loved leaving our door open so we could hear the surf...

The "pool" is basically the size of a hot tub and was not filled while we were there. Our daughter was dissapointed with that as were we. And be sure to bring water shoes as the beach is very rocky. But the pool was our only disappointment with Luna d Mile. We felt like we were the only ones there. It was truly a fun little gem and we would definitely stay there again.

We really enjoy staying at Luna D'Miel. We find the accommodations to be spacious, the views unbelievable, a nicely equipped little kitchenette, and a real sense of privacy and peace. We enjoy being a little out of town, and we walk in (15 to 25 minutes, depending on destination) every day -- no golf cart needed. The room has a fridge, microwave, kitchen sink, coffeemaker, a few dishes, etc, so breakfasts or cocktails in the room are easy. This allows us more hammock time on the back patio, which is on the Caribe side of the island (my favorite view). You can climb down this rocky slope and look for shells, wade, etc. However, this is not a swimming beach. The property does have a tiny pool -- more like a hot tub with no jets. However, we tend to go to a beach instead -- just a personal preference. Isabel is very kind and sweet, and she will do whatever she can to make you comfortable, including giving you a giant water cooler sized bottle of water with a pump instead of the regular pitcher in the room fridge system she tends to use. However, she does not speak much English, so if you need a lot of attention or direction from hotel staff, this is not the place for you. There is a drawback to this property -- there are no screens on the windows or doors. Most of the time you will be fine, but some nights when the winds are calm, if you sleep with the windows open, the mosquitoes will come sometime between 11 pm and 4 am, and you get eaten alive -- no joke. However, there is a room AC unit with a fan only setting as well, so you can sleep comfortably and mosquito free. Don't let this deter you from staying at one of the best little places on Isla!

My wife and I recently stayed at Luna d’ Miel for one week and found the place to be very inviting, secure and comfortable.

Isabel is the name of the Gerente (manager) of the Luna d’ Miel. She is a very nice lady that is very friendly and extremely helpful. She was willing to help us with any request we had including directions, translations, arrangements and general information we had about the island.

The place is very clean and looks just as it did in pictures we found online. We booked our stay entirely online and had no troubles or surprises when we got there. Isabel provided excellent e-mail communications and explained everything very well before we got to Mexico.

The location is away from downtown and was very quiet and relaxing. The air conditioner was very cold when we wanted to use it. It was very nice to have a small kitchenette with a refrigerator. The patio out back has a great view. We found that we spent an equal amount of time sitting in the front watching the sun set across the bay as we did out back listening to the ocean. We rented a cart for a couple of days and used taxis the rest of the time we were there. We never had to wait long to flag a taxi from outside Luna d’ Miel. Most of our rides cost around 20 Pesos ($2) to get to where we wanted to go from the apartment.

We would defiantly stay there again. We would highly recommend staying at the Luna d’ Miel to any traveler that is looking for a nice, out of the way, worry free place to relax and enjoy their vacation.

Our room was very basic but pristine. We loved that you could look one direction to see the crashing waves just feet away and the other direction to see the calm bay. We kept both the doors to the ocean open and the window on the street for the most amazing breeze. There is AC as well. Our little kitchen was well stocked but the bottled water was in short supply. When we requested mucho grande aqua, the lovely girl at the front desk hopped on her scooter to buy us the enormous jugs that have pumps on top. When we also shared with her that we hadn’t had anything but frigid water in two days, she had her “maintenance” man come to check it out. He & his amigo came & turned our taps on full and then went up to the roof. About a ½ hour later, he very patiently showed us the difference between the hot and cold tap as if the only problem was our lack of understanding. At any rate, we now know that you must plan for your shower by turning on the tap for a ½ hour before you spontaneously hop in. They waved and chuckled as they drove away, perhaps thinking –stupid Canadians don’t even know how to open a tap!

The King bed is King in width but not in length so my huisband's feet hung over the edge but they do at home as well. The bed is comfortable in firmness but seems to have a plastic layer under the sheet making the feeling a little like a hospital stay. We loved our choice of the three suites as we had the most privacy both on our Caribe and our Bay patios.

We spent mornings on the Caribe side in the lounger and hammock taking the morning sun. We would arrive home in time for showers, cocktails and sunsets on the road side patio. We loved the you could walk into town so easily and yet be in such a remote location. The coral beach in front is perfect for beachcombing but take a sturdy pair of sandals for the trek. We would hop the bus to explore the south end of the island and then pay $2 for a cab ride back at the end of the day.

I've stayed at the south end and in Centro and I think that the airport strip is the perfect location on Isla.
