My 12 yr. old daughter, niece, sister, and I stayed at Cabanas la Luna for almost a week for a family wedding. We were booked into the "Captain Dale" cabana...and LOVED it! Full of beautiful rustic charm, and with everything we needed to relax and enjoy it's INCREDIBLE location. The cabana was large, clean, and decorated very tastefully...very much in keeping with the "Robinson Crusoe" feel, and with splashes of great Mexican colours everywhere. The authentic and gorgeous Mexican hand-painted sinks in the large and clean bathroom were to die for! ( In fact, I so seriously wished I had a MUCH bigger suitcase to buy one for myself to bring home...but alas, maybe next time.. ;-))
My daughter and I shared the main level's huge and comfy king-sized bed, and with the completely silent whisper fan directly overhead going all night, and the delicate netted canopy draped around the bed, we slept well, and felt like tropical princesses! My sister and her daughter took the two beds in the upstairs loft, and also slept comfy and well. (Note*...maybe not such a good idea to have too many of the bar's tasty margaritas beforehand though...the stairs going up to the loft are rather steep, and narrow, as they will both attest to! lol)
The shower worked well enough to rinse off all the sand and seaweed, and was totally refreshing, with plenty of water. Very private bathroom, in an adjoined room with solid door. Lots of windows with lower louvered shutters to let in the beautiful sea breezes on main level, and good opaque curtains for absolute privacy, as there are other little cabanas and pathways next to it. We felt VERY secure and perfectly safe in this cabana, as well as anywhere else at this gorgeous little resort. I would not hesitate to stay there alone, anytime. The staff are wonderful...friendly and helpful. And FUN! Great food and drink abound at the lovely restaurant, and the service was always excellent. The continental breakfast was a tasty and nutritious way to start the day...and the freshly brewed coffee was excellent!
I can't end this review without mentioning the lovely, LOVELY palapa-style deck...with a huge trunk made into a wonderfully rustic and quaint table, two super comfy hammocks, and a view to die for! It overlooks the gorgeous white sand beach, crystal-clear turquoise Caribbean sea...and with plenty of large exotic shade and privacy-giving heavenly coconut palms hugging the cabana. This was my most favourite place to relax...especially after a great meal from Las Estrellas, and a beautiful swim in a beautiful sea in such a beautiful place. Pure BLISS! :-)
I also can't end this without mentioning a magical night there that I will NEVER forget...the very friendly and wonderful security guard named Abraham who came to ask me and my sister one night if we wanted to see "una tortuga" on the beach. We sat with him for quite some time watching a magnificent HUGE white turtle laying her 100+ eggs in the sand close to our cabana. He was so knowledgable and told us so much about these amazing creatures, and was one of the kindest men I have ever met, as we could tell he cared deeply for these endangered gentle giants. Muchas gracias to him for forever!!! :-)
Sorry, I know this review has almost become a book...but I just have so much good to say about this place. Trust me, I could go on even more, but suffice to say now...Cabanas La Luna is a FABULOUS place, and is a true paradise on earth! CHECK IT OUT ....I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend it to anyone!!! :-)
