My husband and I had already been staying in Tulum for a few days before we were able to check into our space at Cabañas La Luna. They were doing renovations and unfortunately we were not able to reserve with them until November 1. This being said, we booked a cabaña at another place for the nights prior.
I do not wish to give a poor review to the OTHER place because it would be unfair in this particular platform. It was very, very rustic. Just as it had been marketed. The only problem is that there was absolutely no comfort whatsoever. I had to continually remind myself that in a few short days, we would be spending the remainder of our visit at La Luna. Even though, we had not yet been there to tour the grounds, we knew that anything was going to be an improvement.
The day that we were able to check in, we were extremely anxious to get going. La Luna is farther down the beach road than the other place where we had stayed and we had found that the farther down the beach you go... the better it gets. It chills out a bit. Which is something we greatly appreciated since we were there to recharge and just be lazy.
Checking in was amazing. Everyone was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The room was rustic, but still had the option of hot water and electricity if needed. Just knowing that it was available was comforting. It does make a difference when you are on "vacation".
The cabaña was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. I'm a designer, so I pay attention to the details and I can tell you that aesthetically speaking... nothing was overlooked. Our view was fantastic and the set up on the beach made all the difference. The beach beds, lounge chairs, hammocks, swings and umbrellas made us want for nothing. They even had a little section with toys for kids (and myself) to pick through.
They had wireless in the "lobby" area so we were able to skype and email to keep up with everyone back home and check in with the house sitter. It was nice not having to scramble.
We put in orders for coffee every morning as well. Sitting on the front porch of our cabaña surrounded by random pets with a cup of coffee is my new happy place. Although I couldn't figure out how to work the french press to save my life.
Be sure to say hello to Foxy. She is the cutest little dog and so entertaining to watch on the beach. She filled the void of missing our dogs while we were gone. FYI: The staff does not want the animals crawling all over the guests. We just prefer it, because we are animal lovers. You will not be inundated with them during your stay.
We celebrated my husband's birthday there and it was the perfect day. Coffee, beach, dinner and then we laid on the beach under the moon for hours.
I know I am gushing, but you have to understand. I was counting the days to come home until we relocated there. It was great and I can't wait to go back. Hopefully with friends. They have the option to rent the entire place out and we think that would be ideal someday down the road.
The restaurant was not done yet, but I'm sure it will be a great place to spend an evening when it is complete. The pool wasn't finished yet either. Usually this does not go over well with me because I love having a pool, but the beach was so clear and beautiful... who needs it!? It was close to being finished though and looked great.
In summary, we highly recommend this place. We have nothing, but good things to say.
