“Great place at a reasonable price”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

This isn't a fancy resort, but it's clean and is in a great location. It also has a nice courtyard area with small pool. If you can get one of the four loungers, it's very relaxing. It's only a few blocks from the beach and walking distance to many great restaurants. Cheri was great, offering lots of info when we arrived. It was the perfect place for us. Only negative was the minimal water pressure in the shower, but we managed to get clean.

This was my second stay here. The price is reasonable and you are close to everything from the beaches, to the Quinta ( if you want it ), to stores like Mega and Wal-Mart and to more reasonably priced restaurants a bit further into town (10th Ave over to 30th).

The hotel is quiet, which is very important to me. The Wifi worked well.

The staff is a real asset at Luna Blue. They are friendly and well informed. I especially enjoyed the many chats and good advice on local matters from Jaime, the afternoon receptionist.

All in all, a wonderful stay.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the room was good size with a kitchen for 3 friends vacationing together, we each had our own bed, enjoyed the seating outside our room. Everyone was very nice and helpful, from the owner, to the front desk staff to housekeeping. Is in a perfect location!!! Not even 1/2 block from 5th Avenue and 2 blocks to the beach, we took advantage of the deals they have with a beach club on the beach. Even though you are central to everything, you don't feel it when enjoying the pool area, it's very secluded and the decorations and tree's are just beautiful. They let us do a late check out our last day and then leave our luggage behind the desk while 2 of us waited for our 3rd friend to get back from her diving trip, called the ferry service for us to confirm times, they were very helpful.

Is close to beach and other attractions. no complaints, did not miss watching T.V. one bit, needed to get away from all the worlds woes, Thats why they call it a vacation, Would certainly recomend it. Nice and quiet also

I didn't actually stay here in the hotel rooms but I have visited many times to enjoy the bar and pool area. The venue is really nice with pool bar and life music arranged frequently. Nice friendly "family like" atmosphere .. Good service and one not to miss in this area.

My daughter and I just returned to the snowy-cold after spending 7 days at the Luna Blue Hotel. We are missing it! I found the hotel on Tripadvisor and it was exactly what most visitors shared. If you want to stay in the heart of Playa so that you can walk around and enjoy the town, this is a perfect location. However, its not the Ritz.. If you are used to staying at a 4-star hotel where you enjoy all the amenities (spa, gym, turn down service, roomservice, etc) this is probably not for you. However, if you are laid back and can deal with "just the basics", The Luna Blue is for you and you will not be disappointed. We stayed in Room 6. The room was spacious. It had a dbl bed, a single bed and a trundle bed. We had a kitchen table, stove, small fridge, water cooler, a/c, fan and a small bathroom, a balcony with chairs and a hammock! How perfect. The room was very clean and the maid staff was terrific. They made sure we had clean towels each day, made our beds, kept the room clean. The entire staff at the hotel was pleasant and very helpful. We took advantage and went to two of the beach clubs affiliated with the hotel and had great visits. We loved the live music at the bar on Tuesday and Thursday night and met tons of people there that told us they come back every year! Each morning we enjoyed the wonderful sweetbreads and coffee in the courtyard and each evening we enjoyed a visit from the hotel's cats. The courtyard/garden is delightful... We loved sitting out and just relaxing. The pool area is small but nice. We met Tony and Sherri the last day - they are very nice and wanted to ensure that we had a good stay. Its obvious that they make a point with everyone they hire that customer service is key as we truly were treated fantastic. We will be back for sure!

Room Tip: If you want to be able to cook or reheat leftovers, Room 6 comes with a stove, dishes, pots and pans...

Great place to stay in Playa, more relaxed and only a few blocks from the beach. Lots of nice seating area in front of our room as well as at the pool and in the common area. Didn't expect Playa to be as expensive as it was, but seems to be the trend in more touristy areas. 1 thing to note, the bar at the hotel has live music 2 nights a week which was good and brings in a mostly older gringo crowd. The other nights a loop of Jimmy Buffett satellite radio is playing. In both instances, the music stops at 11 or so.
