Travelers' Choice
Nestled among the rugged cliffs and dense tropical vegetation of Oaxaca’s Pacific coast is La Boquilla, a protected cove of white sand and still turquoise water. Virtually untouched by development, this pristine and secluded location – where osprey circle lazily over a silent beach – is the perfect setting for vacationers seeking a truly unique retreat experience.Protected by small islets and tall headlands the crescent beach provides a perfect setting for those vacationers seeking a truly unique retreat, for those who would rather hear the whisper of a gentle fan than the whirr of the air conditioner; for those who prefer snorkel and a sea kayak to the roar of a jet ski; for those who wish to practise yoga and sunrise meditation in an eco-sensitive environment and yet appreciate the best of fresh, natural, local foods & international wines in an exquisite water side setting, this may be the place you have always sought...

There are some pieces of information that I wish I would have known that reviews across various platforms did not mention. CONS: Very, very isolated location. It is a 1 hour drive from the airport and the last 2 miles are on a very bumpy dirt road. There is no store at all ( not even a small convince) store within 40 minutes. There are no restaurants besides the one at the hotel or any other way to get food or drinks besides what the hotel provides. You need to make sure you bring any medication, sunscreen, toiletries that you need because you cannot get them once you are on the property unless you take a 40 minute cab ride to the nearest convince store. If you forget something you are out of luck. There is no market on the way to the property. The largest store is a Oaxxo. I truly regret not stopping at it on my way in to get waters, drinks and snacks. No AC or hot water in rooms. No TV. Mediocre quality towels and linens Very, very poor Wi Fi. I would just count on it not working during your stay. Limited menu and drink selection at restaurant. Dinner is served at 8:30. You have 2 options for the entree, one is fish, the other is a land protein. 8:30 is late for some people. Difficult to access activities in the area. We paid $100 for a boat ride to go to the next bay over. Not super cheap. Not a con but good to know... there is a lot of wildlife... lizards, bats, iguanas, lots of bugs. There are also a lot of dogs roaming the beach and property. The reception staff was not helpful and overall dismissive. Double check your daily bill. The reception over charged us for something almost every day. It was upwards of $100 USD one day. The owner was very sweet and helpful. There are no phones in the rooms. If you need anything you have to walk to the front. It can be a very long walk depending on where you are staying. PROS: The beach is the prettiest I have ever experienced. The water is so clean and beautiful. The beach is semi-private and there are very few people using it There is plenty of shaded areas, beach chairs and beach side drink and food service. It is relaxing! The lack of stimulation is very tranquil. The food at dinner is good! Very private. The rooms are spread out. The owner is very helpful, accommodating and a great guy I felt trapped the first two days I was there. It is so isolated and you are cut off from the outside world plus the accommodations are a great deal more rustic then I care for but once I got used to it I was able to relax and enjoy a slower pace for a few days.

If you are looking for a 5 star beach resort with all the trimmings, this is not for you. This is more of a rustic, romantic place to just chill among nature and enjoy the beach, ocean, other travellers and relax. We stayed in the Pluton cabana which was literally right on the beach. No stairs or steps. The room was comfortable and we really did not spend much time in the room besides to sleep. Loved the sound of the ocean and the breeze while you slept. The meals were delicious, especially the evening dinner on the beach. My wife and I loved the different meals prepared by the Chef George or Horge. The road was initially a bit of a challenge but after you get used to it, it wasn't that much of a deal. We had rented a car so we did go and explore 3 days of the 7 we were there. Actually it most probably keeps the beach a bit of the beaten path and adds to the charm, otherwise you may get too many visitors!! The owners George & Lauda were very welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed their company and hospitality. This is a bit of paradise in this part of Mexico and would definitely consider returning and recommending it to others.

Our staff tries to provide the experience you described, a balance of attention and restraint, and yes, the road goes serve as a “ filter” to keep the beach as uncrowned as you found it. Thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bahia de la Luna. Came with my partner, we never felt uncomfortable. Our cottage was clean and the bed was perfect. We stayed in Casa Ivan which was off by itself and oceanfront, very relaxing and quiet. The included breakfast was nice as well as items for purchase from the menu and the lunch menu was good we enjoyed everything we tried but the real treat here are the dinners served by candle light at tables set around the beach, the chef comes around during the day about 4:00 pm to give you the choices for the day. The beach is amazing and the water is nice and warm, we didn't leave for the four days we were there also there is plenty of shade to hang out in. We used the kayaks and just enjoyed swimming and relaxing at this wonderful gem. The staff are very nice and welcoming and really make this place special. If you want a unique, unpretentious and amazing experience then come here. remember to follow the instructions they give you after booking and book transport through them for easy arrival. We stayed in Huatulco for a couple of days before so we could arrive during the day.

Room Tip: Casa Ivan is amazing. Neptuno, Urano and Pluton are all close to the beach and secluded.

An absolutely amazing stay at Bahia de la Luna. The location could not be more beautiful. Think forrest meets beach. Love the understated rustic feel. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Shout out to the wonderful wait staff: Mario, Carlos, Elliot, Luis. Ada and Layla were so helpful. And the dinner Chef Jorge! Magnificent. The food was so good. Some reviews said they wanted more selection, but I am gluten free and don't eat red meat and I never had a problem. Offering less means the ingredients are fresh. We stayed in the Gemini bungalow which was a 2 bedroom up at the very top. Amazing view. We chose it for the privacy, but it really was a hike to get up there. So, good exercise, but if you are not in good shape I would choose something lower. Its so many steps that when you go down for breakfast...you stay down until sunset. Make sure and get a massage from Connie. Absolutely amazing. She will heal you! The beach is just perfect for relaxing all day or they have kayaks, stand up paddle and snorkeling gear. They also organized a boat trip and we saw Whales, turtles, flying manta rays and we swam with wild dolphins. A turtle even came up right on the beach during dinner to lay eggs. My only feedback would be to work on a few minor things in the sustainability department. It really is high time to get rid of plastic straws and toiletries in tiny plastic bottles and soap wrapped in plastic. These small, but important changes can help to keep this beautiful place beautiful. Cannot recommend it enough.

We loved this place, but it's not a luxury resort, so don't expect that. We loved the beautiful bed with the netting all around. And there's a bathroom with cold water only. Never really needed hot water, though, and spent almost no time in our room. Also, once you are here, it is inconvenient to leave because the road in is so rough. Having said that, though, we didn't care at all. The food was fantastic, especially at the evening meal when the chef cooked. Different food every night. Excellent service, friendly staff, free snorkel equipment and use of kayaks. Safe swimming there because the current pushes you in towards shore. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. The road is, indeed, Rough That’s why our team works extra hard to ensure our guests feel as you do.... glad to be there! Similarly, chef Coco seems to make every oceanside evening meal ‘special’. We’re glad you liked it and look forward to hosting you again. Jorge
