We spent 8 glorious nights at Cabanas La Luna in October and loved every minute. I was a bit reluctant at first because the Cabanas are "rustic" and I am insect phobic, but it wasn't a problem in the least! While "eco-friendly" the Cabanas are well maintained and very clean with everything you could need. The fan and mosquito netting above the bed was great.
The staff provide just the perfect balance of helpfulness and availability and privacy. We stayed at La Luna for a few nights in 2011 and decided we had to return for a longer visit. Our first four nights were in the "Christopher Columbus" cabana -- and our second four nights were right next door in the "Robinson Crusoe." It was nice to have a slightly different experience in each room. Both have their pluses and minuses. The Christopher Columbus is slightly larger overall and the bathroom is behind the sleeping area and spacious. The space around the bed is very close. The view from the patio is great and there is a straight shot down to the beach. The "Robinson Crusoe" has less space overall, but more around the sleeping area and the bathroom, while smaller is more separate (saloon doors divide it from the sleeping area). The view from the bed in the Robinson is spectacular -- straight out to the sea, and it also has a path straight to the beach. Both are great for a single traveler or couple, but would be really challenging for anyone traveling with children. We also loved the porches on each cabana -- with a table, lounge/chair, and hammock it was an extra outdoor room where we spent a lot of time.
Cabanas La Luna has a great vibe to it -- it feels like staying with extended family. Since the property is fairly small, guests get to know each other on the beach and in the restaurant, but at the same time there is a lot of privacy. It is not a big party scene on the beach, but still has a sense of companionship we loved.
The restaurant "Las Estrellas" on site is fabulous and we ate there repeatedly. They had the best guacamole we tasted on the trip, and the ceviche was amazing. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It was so nice to have such a great choice so close to the cabana.
We think this is the best deal on the beach -- gorgeous, well kept white sand beach, gentle slope in the water, well maintained beach beds, umbrellas and chairs, and understated beach service for food and beverages. While we walked the beach and looked at other properties, we decided we really wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. We will be back!
