“Adorable little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We had a quick stay here and it was fantastic. Alex at the front desk was a terrific host. The tropical, open-air feel of this hotel is alluring. The inside of the room was quite small and simple but it did not cost much so it was fine. There were pretty tropical flowers and birds here. I loved the complimentary bread in the morning, too. So delicious. We walked to spend the evening in the bustling town. The Playa area was perfectly safe. We booked CancunShuttle.com to drive us here and they were great, too. Highly recommended. Would be a neat place for a budget honeymoon, too. Get the treetop room if stairs are not a problem for you.

Room Tip: The tree top room is cute and overlooks the property. I enjoyed sitting outside the room waching th...

Good location if you wish to go to the beach and walk. Close to tourist areas but also the eateries within walking distance. Excellent service...always returned to a clean room. Pool was very nice as was the bar.

Room Tip: Garden room with kitchenette and fridge very handy. Also private.

Walking through the entrance of Luna Blue from the active streets of Carmen Del Playa was akin to entering another world. The noise died down and we were surrounded by a serene and natural setting. The hotel's semi-hidden appearance from the outside expanded into a village of charming rooms nestled between large, beautiful trees and a stone walkway. I instantly felt at home. We were greeted by Alex at the desk who quickly became our go-to guy for tips and questions about the area. Loved him! Jorje, the bartender, was also our go-to guy, only for excellent margaritas :) And Tony and Sherry, the owners with whom I now consider family, were warm, generous and wonderful to talk to! Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for the location, the comfort after a long day of sightseeing, and the genuine people.

Booked a last-minute trip to Playa and had another great stay at Luna Blue. From check-in with Alex to check-out at 4:30 in the morning the day of my departure, everything was very relaxing. The staff is so very friendly and accommodating. The man (not Mario, but forgot his name) on night duty the day of my very, very early morning departure made sure I was up and ready to go for my ride to the airport by 4:00 a.m.

Spent a full day reading by their gorgeous and relaxing pool area. So peaceful. I really could have sat down there by the pool every day of my stay because it is just such a relaxing and beautiful environment that Tony and Cheri have created there.

And, of course, can't forget hanging with Jorge, the bartender, in the evenings. Such a genuinely great person!

Thanks, Luna Blue, for another wonderful trip to Playadise! We will see you soon!

We spent 4 nights here in Sept prior to our son's wedding. Alex at the desk couldn't have been more helpful. Jorge, the fabulous bartender, gave us a great tip on a restaurant that we all loved...La Pesca near Mega. Lovely atmosphere, reasonable prices and great good. Luna Blue feels like you are in the middle of the jungle...lovely trees and birds chirping. The pool was so refreshing with the 100% humidity. We had a room with a kitchenette and lots of space for 3 people. It is very simple but nice and quiet and steps from crazy 5th Ave yet we didn't hear any noise from that. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great ambiance. Very central location, just off the main pedestrian zone. Loved the sweet breads in the morning, the margaritas and the pool. The bar and music at night on some evenings might be an issue if you're planning to get to sleep early the next day. We will definately come back to Luna Blue when we come back to playa.

The Luna Blue hotel was a great hotel to stay in for my trip to Mexico! My room had everything you could possibly need, big comfy beds, a small kitchen a clean cozy bathroom and a cute little porch. The pool was beautiful and aqua and surrounded by beautiful plant life and comfy chairs... and the bar was right next to it! Every day that I arrived back in my room it was freshly cleaned and my towels were replaced and creatively shaped into flowers or seals or whatever inspired the maid and placed on the bed. Absolutely adorable! Very fun to see what the towels were going to be every day! They had plenty of brochures for attractions down at the desk as well and paper slips to rent free beach chairs when you made the 5 minute walk to the beach. Overall my stay at this hotel was uncomparably amazing and definitely will not be my last!
