Reviewed January 6, 2010

When my two daughters decided my 50th birthday should be celebrated with a trip to Tulum, I said “okay, but you will have to make all the arrangements.” After reading reviews they decided on Posada Luna del Sur. I’m still thanking my daughters for finding this place! Sarah, Marty & Gareth’s hospitality is genuine as well as above and beyond the call of duty. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped and we absolutely loved the rooftop deck. I felt like I was staying with old friends at Posada Luna del Sur.

We stayed here for four days over Christmas and we had a wonderful time. The proprietors make you feel like guests in their home, and in many ways, you are. They are friendly and very knowledgeable. They did a great job of setting my mind at ease, this being my first trip to the area. The rooms were unique and the entire staff was incredibly friendly.

Posada Luna del Sur is owned & operated by two of the most dedicated, friendly and accommodating people we've ever stayed with. If you're looking for the quaint, no-stress culture of Quintana Roo in a location with access to all that area has to offer, this beautiful hotel in Tulum is your hub. The owners Sarah & Marty and brother Gareth make themselves available to you 24/7 for all your travelling needs including a great breakfast to start your day, sightseeing advice and travel agency, tips on the great food and beaches in the area, extras you may have forgotten to bring... and all without leaving the hotel. Our rooms couldn't have been more comfortable, complete with a garden patio, decorated with all the style of the Yucatan and access to a lovely rooftop deck for a great view of Tulum, sunbathing on the open end and a breezy, shaded end for joining with other guests or making your own party. There were four of us, we all loved it and were made perfectly welcome.

By far and away the best bit about staying at this lovely little hotel is the friendly service of Marty and Sarah. They were so helpful and able to assist us with everything from taxi prices, to restaurant recommendations, to private taxi transfers out to Coba ruins (which are an absolute must). Sarah's check-in process made us feel immediately comfortable in the hotel - she explains all the features of the room and the town to us in such a friendly manner. The rooms themselves have everything one might need including a full fridge, clean water, ac/fan, TV, coffee maker, couch and wireless. In fact, the hotel has everything you would need for a great stay in Tulum - brekkie in the morning, access to a computer available on the great roof top terrace and security at night. We tossed up whether to stay in town or on the beach and were so glad we choose town - not only because the hotel was fabulous but because we got to be in the thick of things in town - it looked as if the beach front would be very quiet (with more limited food and drink options) at night. They are have started to renovate the rooms and we had a sneak peak at the first one and it looks great!

The rooms are spotless and lovely and equipped with refrigerators for cerveza, plenty of fresh water and hot showers (10 minutes at a time). The location is perfect for exploring the pretty and utterly benign little city of Tulum - particularly if you've got your own transportation to and from the drop-dead gorgeous beaches, where you can use the beautifully appointed beach clubs for a nominal fee. Tulum really got short shrift in the most recent Yucatan Lonely Planet guide - it's a gastronome's playground with plenty of safe fun at night and I would definitely go back. I'd stay at the Posada again too, whose greatest asset is proprietress Sarah Evans and her colleagues, who welcome you to make yourself at home and who provide outstanding advice about what to see at what time of day, and where best to eat and drink. My husband and I, traveling with another couple, felt wholly welcomed and entirely looked after.

We chose Posada Luna del Sur because it was reasonably priced and was no. 1 listing in Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed when we stayed for six nights in mid-December. One of the Canadian team that run the Posada stayed late (2300 hrs) to welcome us on arrival from a flight / drive from Cancun. Gave us lots of good local tips the following day ... as well a great buffet breakfast served on a nice open roof terrasse. It was clear in following days that they take good care of all of their guests in the same way. Rooms were fine and well maintained with TV, fridge etc. They also do lots of nice extra things like leaving big multilitre water in rooms as well as some coffee and coffeemaking gear. Friendly, well-run and very reasonable establishment. No hesitations in recommending to other travellers. John/Sara

The facility itself is small, quaint, comfy, clean - and priced at a very good rate. There are other places that can say that too, but the three Canadians that own and manage this place set it apart, and work hard to make it a home away from home. They have lots of time to make sure every guest is comfortable, and educated on finding what they came for whether that's the best restaurants, the best snorkeling spot, the best beach hangouts, the right taxi rates, the best shopping deals, etc. Normally I try to find beachfront hotels, but trust me here, when in Tulum you'll want to stay in town and taxi to the beach. And you'll be friends with Martin, Gareth, and Sarah, and you'll want to see these young people succeed with their venture into entrepreneurialism when you see how hard they try, and the great ideas they have.
