“Great place in city centre”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Nice and cheap posada on edge of city centre. Hotels at Tulum beach lack the bigger choice of nearby restaurants and bars and are more expensive. And the owner Tom is great with information about beaches, trips and restaurants.

A nice little place in the town, we enjoyed our visit there. I agree with all the other stuff written here about Toms help and great inside information about the area, was super nice and helpful. Take under consideration that the place is far from the beach so a bike or a car is kind of necessary. Btw, we had much better breakfasts elsewhere.
Anyway thanks Tom :)

Posada is a lovely place to stay in Tulum pueblo for many reasons: it's charming; off the main drag, so quieter; has great breakfasts on a rooftop patio; is clean and comfortable; and surprises you with clean towels twisted into fun animals and characters. But, the best reason to stay is the owner, Tom, who is a wealth of advice and will do everything to help you figure what to do while you're there.

Posada Luna del Sur was an excellent value hotel in Tulum centre. We checked in late and the night porter showed us to our rooms. The room was comfortable and clean, though the air conditioning machine was very loud. The breakfast was nice and served by some lovely ladies. We struggled to find the internet machine, though apparently there was one, and there wasn't a reception as such to go to if you had a problem. Also consider that this hotel is not close to the beach, we jumped in a taxi to get to the beach or Tulum ruins. However, Tulum town centre has an excellent range of restaurants, and this was a great hotel to stay in if you want to save money but stay somewhere nice, and its a good base from which to explore Sian Kaan, nearby caves and ruins.
Recommended.

The Posada Luna del Sur is great place to stay for a visit to Tulum. Tom and his staff go out of their way to make your stay pleasurable. We spent five stays there and enjoyed every minute of it. We highly recommend it. It is well located. There are great restaurants nearby. Tom's map and all his advice and suggestions are so helpful in visiting the nearby sites. We will recommend this place to all our friends as the place to stay when visiting Tulum.

Please believe everything ( good) you read on Trip Advisor about this little gem. We spent 5 nights at the Posada over the Christmas Break and couldn't have been happier. The Hotel is cosy and spotless with a great relaxing vibe. The rooms are very comfortable and immaculate.
Our favorite part of the Hotel was the outside rooftop deck. Breakfast is served there daily - more about breakfast to come - and a great spot to hang out, read and enjoy a glass of wine.
Tom the owner is on site the majority of the time and is a wealth of info on tours, Tulum itself, getting around and Mexico in general. He made our trip !!!!! It was a pleasure to meet him and his beautiful family. The Staff was also fantastic.
Breakfast was hot and made fresh to order. A good variety of Mexican food as well as standard American breakfast dishes.
Our family had the honour of having a private meal prepared by Chef Ricky Casanova on the rooftop deck. My husband and son went deep sea fishing and their catch was prepared by the Chef in a private decktop meal. So reasonably priced that I still can't believe it. Better than most 5 star restaurants.
All in all - skip the all inclusives, skip the beach and stay here....literally a 6 or 7 minute ride to the beach. Be a part of real Mexico...1/2 a block off the Tulum Main Street. So safe..virually no crime. You won't regret it. Thank you Tom - you made our Holiday better than we could have dreamed possible. We hope to come back and see you soon......

If you are a first time traveller to Tulum and are looking for value for money, don't look any further!

Great hotel - clean, comfortable, air con, conveniently located, free hot breakfast (which is delicious!!)

The owner, Tom is basically like your live in tour guide and will advise you on EVERYTHING - what tours, where to eat (tailored to your budget), how to get places and how much buses and taxis should cost (easy to get ripped off if you don't suggest to the taxi driver what the cost should be), the best beach spots etc etc

I will definitely be returning and I wouldn't stay anywhere but here! Made to feel welcomed and like an old friend.
