My husband, 18 year old son, friends and myself stayed at Luna Beach for approximately ten days.
Booking was a peice of cake with Debbie the daughter of the owner of Luna Beach. She made everything run smoothly, and was very helpful with any questions we had. We met her father at the resort, he is such a nice man.
Getting to West End
Luna is a great place to stay, within just a few minutes you go from a quiet relaxing accomodation to a busy area of the West End to the shops and restaurants, The walk from Luna to the West End is a really quick and easy beach walk. Really nice. I would also like to add that it is totally safe and that you can walk on the beach. Everyone is very friendly. If you like you can also stand out on Luna's beautiful dock and get a water taxi into town. I'm not sure of the cost, but I don't think it's very much. They will boat you into the West End if you don't feel like walking or if you have things to carry.
Luna Beach is beautiful, with it's beautiful gardens of Hibiscus trees and palm trees. On site there are quite a few parrots who whistle and talk. They were rescued birds and everyone at Luna cares for them very well. Along with the Parrots are the friendly cats. They are trained not to bother you, and only come to you if invited. They too were cared for very well. My most favourite was an orange kitten I named "Gatto."
The rooms were spacious and were kept incredibly clean. The housekeeping staff was so friendly. The grounds of the hotel were manicured everyday and the pool was super clean and warm.
The Luna Beach Restaurant
The restaurant was amazing. I had several dishes, my favourite......the Lobster Salad. All of the dishes were delicious. The food was served promptly and hot. The restaurant staff was very nice and looked after us very well. The restaurant is open, and there are tables that sit under umbrellas and eves. There is a Wi-Fi bar that you can sit at that is also open. Having everything open was really welcoming.
The Dive Shop...
three great guys from all over the world...who make an incredible dive team.
Okay, I can't say enough about the dive shop. WOW!!!!! Arturo, is from Argentina and is the dive shop manager. He is wonderful. My son can't stop talking about how he such a great guy and awesome teacher. He was very understanding, patient, and meticulously safety oriented about our diving. I really took a lot of notice to this, as safety was my number one concern. We were truly looked after and when we first met him, we knew we were in good hands. He has a passion for diving and people. He was very encouraging to my son and made the education of diving a great experience. My son took many dive courses with him. My husband and myself took the deep dive course. It was so much fun. I highly suggest taking your budding dive teens to this resort to be educated in diving. You can get can get your complete dive levels here. The classes are serious not just a one day hotel recreation certificate on diving. I highly recommend taking your budding dive teens here to learn how to dive properly. What a great thing to do while holidaying. There's no one better to teach them then Arturo.
Adam is from Victoria, B. C., Canada, and was our dive master who again made sure we were comfortable with our dives and looked after our safety. He is a very skilled diver and knows everything there is to know about diving. He was very helpful with everything and was patient with our stupid questions that arose and our silly behaviours. You will learn a lot from him, even if you are well experienced yourself with diving.
Jose our dive master. I loved Jose who is from Mexico. He was sooo much fun on one hand, but safety conscious on the other. He really took the time to get to know everyone, not just on a dive level, but on a personal level. Jose took roll call many times on each dive. He was very concerned at all times and was very attentive with everything. He was an incredible dive master and made my day brighter and my diving a fun experience. I espeically enjoyed our jive on the dock. lol...
Ferman was the captain of our boat. He also took the time to get to know us. I can't tell you how many times Ferman helped me with my gear. He would help me up and make it easier to get into the water and be there to help me when I go out of the water. Ferman is such a great guy.
The Dive Gear
Although I brought most of my own gear, you can be rest assured that you are getting nothing but the best at the Luna Beach Dive Shop. Their gear is all in really top notch condition. They also have lots of reference books you can purchase at the shop if you feel like catching up on your dive reading.
I had such a great time at Luna Beach. It was so wonderful. I can't say enough good things about it. I will miss all of the staff, including the animals.
