“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Posada Luna del Sur is a great place to stay as a base to discover Tulum and the Yucatan Peninsula. Combine a stay there with, rental car, and the tips from Tom (the owner) and you have excellent holiday.

We stayed here this last week and it was completely amazing! Tom, the owner, could not be more helpful and nice. He spent time with us every morning helping us book tours (not with the huge companies but with locals which was awesome) and made us feel at home. The rooms are nice, large, so clean and perfect. they have king size beds with a little kitchen nook which is great for stays over 2 or 3 days. they provide you with clean water as well. We loved this place so much that we opted to stay here again the last night of our stay in tulum and cancelled at another location! We are getting married in a few months down here and have already put this hotel as a "must stay" if people want to be in town.

Room Tip: we loved the second floor!

We had such an awesome time at Posada Luna del sur. There are so many great things to say about this place. A. Tom, the owner is fantastic. Couldn't be better host. He took probably 30 min to 1 hour every morning at breakfast to answer all of our questions about Tulum and give suggestions about great places to go, see, and find the best deals in town. We definitely felt very welcomed, happy, comfortable and safe. B. The rooms are very clean. The beds are very comfortable and we slept great. C. The price is right. We stayed at an all inclusive the week prior and paid slightly more for a much less pleasant experience. The food at the all inclusive was really not good. Posada Luna del sur on the other hand, the breakfast is awesome and service staff is very friendly. It's obvious that they take a lot of pride in their work. I really enjoyed the laid back feeling of the hotel and yet the professionalism of all the staff. I completely plan on going back, 100%.

This was our first time to Tulum and honestly I was a little hesitant about staying in town versus on the beach. But my husband and I are so glad that we spent a portion of our Tulum vacation in town, and specifically at Posada Luna del Sur. The owner Tom and his staff were very welcoming. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. It was nice having air conditioning (especially not having an ocean breeze to take advantage of), a small refrigerator and a filtered water dispenser. All things we didn’t have when we stayed down on the beach. But what made our stay extraordinary was Tom’s hospitality. When checking in we received his ‘map’ and then chatted with him during our lovely breakfasts on the rooftop for even more recommendations. Luckily our trip went smoothly, but I felt that if any complications had arose, we would have been able to go to Tom for help. It was also clear that all of the staff at Posada Luna del Sur were hand-picked and made us feel like we were at a home away from home. The location was great for walking around town to visit all of the amazing restaurants and shopping in town (which was also much less expensive than down on the beach). And is only a quick drive or cab ride down to the beach. We were glad we made the decision to stay in town at Posada Luna del Sur and plan to come back soon!

I cannot say enough great things about Posada Luna del Sur. Tom is amazing and gives excellent advice on what do to and where to go. The breakfast is delicious and gets you off each morning on the right foot. The beds are unbelievably comfortable, the kitchenette is a great touch and the rooms are super comfortable. IT is in a great location in that the hotel is away from the more touristy places that are right on the beach. This hotel is right in the heart of Tulum, which gives each visitor a real feeling of Mexico. You can walk to many local restaurants and feel like a traveler rather than a tourist. I cannot say enough about this place! IT is truly the best place to stay and I strongly encourage you to speak to Tom when you're planning your day. He is very knowledgeable on what is possible in Tulum. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and Tom and his staff went above and beyond to make us feel special. Stay at Posada Luna!

Room Tip: Go with the King Size bed!

We loved this hotel! It was clean and super comfortable. We felt so welcomed here that we skipped the hotel on the beach just to come back to this hotel. Way more comfortable and its nice being in the heart of all the real mexican food and mexican lifestyle. The manager Tom was super helpful and kind and provides an awesome map of the local area restaurants....thanks tom for making us feel so welcomed!

My boyfriend and I recently spent a week in Tulum at Posada Luna Del Sur and I couldn't be happier with the hospitality. We had originally only booked for 3 nights and planned to head to the beach for the remainder of our stay, but after a debacle with our beach accommodation, I called Tom and he graciously took us back in for 4 more nights. The hotel is not fancy, but has everything you need and more - spacious room, large king-size bed, balcony (we faced the courtyard which was wonderful and quiet), air-conditioning, TV (though you won't ever need to turn it on with everything there is to see/do in the area), kitchenette with fridge and utensils, and an unlimited supply of clean water for drinking and brushing teeth.

The staff at Posada Del Sur also make your experience that much better. Tom, who runs the place, is very welcoming and always willing to pass on tips and advice on anything from the best shops and restaurants in town to booking fishing trips and guided tours. He has great connections, so make sure to ask him if you're planning any day trips while in Tulum. The restaurant staff are lovely (they serve fresh made-to-order breakfasts) and cleaning is spot on (immaculate rooms every day with towel art to boot!).

If you go to Tulum, skip the beach cabanas - stay in town and rent bikes to go to the beach during the day. It's a beautiful, flat ride, and you get to come back to the authentic experience in town in the evenings - great restaurants, bars, and all at half the price of the beach. We just loved our trip to Tulum and would highly recommend staying at Posada Luna Del Sur. We'll definitely be back again!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8 - on the second floor, had a small balcony, was quiet, and faced the courtyard.
