Congrats to Luna Blue

Nice comments in this article from USA Today

Just back from Mayan Riviera

Hola, Hotsheeters. It's hard to adjust to being back in los Estados Unidos after the sun and sunny spirits of the residents of Mexico's Mayan Riviera, south of Cancun. I didn't meet ONE uncaring or surly hotel employee, and that's a record!

The big news is the Mayakoba complex of four luxury hotels (Fairmont, Rosewood, Banyan Tree, Viceroy) being carved out of the jungle on 30-plus acres and a network of man-made canals near Playa del Carmen. Only the Fairmont Makakoba is finished so far (see photo), but the Rosewood is looking pretty good, and very cutting-edge modern for Rosewood (its other holdings include The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, The Carlyle in Manhattan and Little Dix Bay in the Caribbean).

But you don't have to drop hundreds a day to stay on the Riviera Maya. I spent a night in a basic but charming and sparkling-clean guesthouse right in the heart of the action in Playa del Carmen. The Luna Blue Hotel & Garden cost me $72.80, including tax. Bueno for the budget in these days of triple-digit hotel rates in hot resort areas.

Leaving for a three night stay there on Thursday.

Hate to see the Luna Blue get too much good press!

Might make it hard to get reservations! :)

Nice to see that you don't have to spend a fortune to stay in a great place.
