Yes, yes, and yes. I cannot emphasize how amazing our stay in Tulum was, and it was all because of Janet and Jack. After five less-than-ideal days in Playa del Carmen, we took a collectivo in sweltering heat to Tulum, only to get lost getting to the hotel (my fault entirely--once we got to the right street, there was no missing the sign for the hotel). From the moment Janet greeted us, however, we knew our luck was changing, and change it did. Janet gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants (and also warned us about the ones to stay away from!). She sent us to a great bike shop, and awesome dive shop, where we had fantastic experiences. She even booked our Sian Kaan Biosphere tour...twice, when we changed our minds about which we wanted. J & J are both just so sweet, relaxed, and genuine that we could go on all day. Trust me, and everyone else who's said the same - Posada Luna del Sur is a class act.

We spent a delightful and relaxing week at Posada Luna del Sur at the end of 2007, Christmas through New Year's. Tulum is authentic Mexico. Only a few people speak English, which is an important reason to stay with Jack and Janet, fluent English speakers.

Janet is the creative entrepreneur behind this small, beautifully decorated hotel. She helped us find the best places to eat, the best beaches, even the best place to buy sunblock.

We were awakened by crowing roosters, a reminder that we were living in a country village. Breakfast, provided by the hotel, always included the world's freshest orange juice and fresh-baked pastries. Walking from the hotel at the edge of town, we passed friendly locals, going about their business. We felt completely safe walking about town, despite the relative poverty. Our favorite restaurant was La Nave. The fish was wonderful.

The beaches near Tulum (about $5 by taxi) have to be among the most beautiful in the world. While there are many interesting places to tour (certainly the marvelous Tulum ruins high on the cliffs above the Caribbean, and snorkling in the local cenotes), our favorite days were spent reading and sunning in the warm breezes at the Tulum beaches.

Our room was comfortably and spotless. Jesus, the housekeeper, created creatures from towels. The hotel is enclosed in a walled patio. We enjoyed spending New Year's Eve with Jack, Janet, and other guests on the rooftop of the Posada Luna del Sur.

How do we begin..... we picked Posada Luna de Sur for our tenth anniversary vacation, and we were not disapointed. Jack and Janet set us up and gave us directions to all to all the best places in town. Both Janet and Jack were there for any questions we had or arrangements we requested. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. Our room was cleaned daily and Jesus left us with a new towel design each day (swan, swan pair, turtle, doll, elephants, puppy, shell). The fresh fruit at breakfast each morning was absolutely wonderful! We will definitely be coming back! OUTSTANDING!

Very pretty place, quiet and comfortable. Jack and Janet were wonderful hosts. Jack even helped us find "reverse" in our manual rental car!
Very accomodating folks, friendly and helpful. Rooms are very prettily decorated and very clean.
The inn is in Tulum proper but not too far from the beach.
enjoyed our stay ...

We stayed at this hotel for four nights and had a great experience. It is a small place which makes it feel personal and inviting.

Janet and Jack are very friendly and are keen to make your stay as pleasant as possible. If there is anything you need Janet is usually around during breakfast to answer questions and give advice.

The breakfast is very nice, but if you need something more substantial you can stock up at the grocery store and just ask Janet for plates etc. Cutlery and crockery were not supplied in the room but if you ask they seem happy to provide it.

The room we stayed in was spacious and very clean.

We were part of a larger group and had friends who stayed at various hotels on the beach. They were all paying a lot more for their rooms and although the setting they were staying in might have been more romantic they all had complaints ranging from mosquitoes to hearing people in the neighboring rooms. When we told them that we had a spacious room with a/c and a small kitchen they were quite jealous.

Obviously the down side of staying in the pueblo is that you have further to the beach, but as long as you have a car it's really not a problem. I would chose Posada Luna del Sur over the beach hotels as I felt it was great value for money.
