My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights during our honeymoon before moving on to the beach. It was a great place to stay in town and good launching point for the local excursions we wanted to explore (i.e. Akumel, Chichen Itza, denotes, etc.). The reviews about Tom and his map are not overblown, nor exaggerated. He truly is a helpful resource and it is abundantly clear that he is genuinely devoted to making sure you have a great time in Tulum. His enthusiasm and spirit are infectious. As my husband put it, staying at Posada Luna del Sur is like staying with a friend in town because Tom makes you feel right at home. Since we moved on to a beach front hotel the following week, his map continued to help guide us beyond our stay in the pueblo.
Our room was great--very clean, we loved the towel displays that we found on our bed each night and it is such a bonus to have plenty of drinking water at your disposal. The wifi worked in our room most of the time, though sometimes it was spotty but hey, it's free wifi. The "world class" resort we stayed at in Playa del Carmen was charging 150 pesos a day for wifi so we were just happy to have this free amenity at all.
The main road right outside the hotel can be a bit dodgy to walk on at night (because for one black there's no sidewalk), but we quickly discovered that by walking away from the main road and then cutting back 2 blocks north was a great alternative. It's a very safe area and we were not hassled nor heckled at all.
If we make our way back to Tulum we will certainly stay here again.
