Description: What if you could wash ashore on a beautiful tropical island with a group of friends and build yourself a cozy little settlement of colourful decorated, wooden houses right there on the beach? What if a local Mama would prepare lunches and dinners with local ingredients fresh from the sea and the gardens, serving it in the little village square? What if you could create your own electricity and water supply and be completely self-sufficient? Wouldn't that be a fairy tale come true? We thought so, and so we bought a piece of beautiful beach land in Tulum, Mexico and created our dream. It is this dream that we want to share with you. Our own little magical island of authenticity, La Luna. La Luna is build like a tiny little village: Private, elegant, warm and friendly with a nice central gathering place where you can enjoy our local fresh dishes with our other guests. Feel like Robinson Crusoe, Christopher Columbus or Captain Dale on a tropical shore with everything you need to feel the magic of life: fresh air, blue skies, turquoise water, fresh local dishes, friendly people and a lot of sun. Come to magical La Luna and enjoy a fairy tale come true!

“Beautiful restaurant, fantastic food, amazing staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We just got back from our destination wedding at Cabanas La Luna and I had to come back and write a review on their restaurant, Las Estrellas. The food and the staff are incredible. They catered every wedding event we had there on the property (Welcome Party, Rehearsal BBQ, and Wedding Reception) and all the food was varied, fresh and delicioso! We had several bartenders, chefs and restaurateurs among our guests and they were all impressed by the service, the food, and attention to detail. The best catered wedding food I've had. One of our guests snapped pictures of the kitchen on the morning of our wedding after they unloaded the food delivery truck. Wish i had the photo to share on this review. Mounds of fresh produce. Not a can or jar in site. So there's no doubt that everything is made fresh in-house. Seriously impressed. We ended up eating there most meals. Breakfast was also great. Try the chicken chilaquiles! Perfect hangover food :) The waiters, bartenders and chefs really made our wedding week memorable as they were the one's we had the most face time with. An incredible group and Las Estrellas is lucky to have them.

“Best Fajitas ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is the best place in Tulum top have a great lunch, if you ask me.
The fishsoup is outstanding and the fajitas is just as tasty as it looks at my pichture. A romantic place and a nice manager with a staff who makes you feel at home. They also have rooms, but we didn´t unfortunately not get any, this time.

“Excellent grouper, pretty place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had dinner one night here during our stay. Lobster was good, though a little rubbery, grouper was excellent. Beautiful location. We sat outside despite wind to enjoy nearly full moon. Not cheap, but no place in the area is! Good service.

“Five star chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The lobster is the best we've ever eaten!! The chef is a five star chef and could probably turn roadkill into a culinary delight!
