This hotel is definitely a gem on the outer edge of Tulum. We say outer edge cause we didn't travel any farther South than Posada Luna del Sur. We didn't need to. The hotel is convenient to experiencing the culture that a real Mayan city has to offer. The rooms are clean, and have a tropical flair to them. The balcony is great too. We felt very safe staying here.
When we arrived on Feb 17, Janet greeted us personally and gave us a map of Tulum and told us where to find a good spot on the beach and which cenotes to see, as well as good advice on restaurants in the town. There are fabulous restaurants along the main road, and some of the best margarita's i've ever had at Don Cafeto's.
Unfortunately I arrived without my luggage, however Janet immediately offered us her home telephone to call the airlines. She made every attempt to make sure that I got it back and left several messages for the airlines. Turns out it traveled to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City and finally Cancun before I got it over one day later.
If you're looking for Mayan culture in a town away from the Little USA of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, definitely visit Tulum and stay at the Posada Luna del Sur.
Thanks again Janet! We look forward to visiting Tulum again!
