Posada Luna del Sur
Travel Blogs from Tulum
... course and some of the buildings are pretty cool. I particularly liked one building, which looked like it had been taken from a cartoon and could have easily housed the Flintstones.
We also visited the Gran Cenote. The Cenotes are a connection of underground caves that contain water, many fish and also lots of impressive rock formations. The Cenotes are all joined together in a large network and were created when a meteorite hit the ...
... basically one long street with a small square half way down (where we got to watch a Mexican idol/ X factor Tulum one night live which was pretty hilarious).
The hostel here also had bikes we could take out and so rather than taking a taxi (still not sure if this was a good idea or not) we decided to cycle the 9k to the beach. The cycling wasn't the bad part it was the heat in which we had to cycle. It was baking!!!! But oh ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Posada Luna del Sur Tulum
Janet's place is a stone's throw from Tulum's main strip but in a quiet spot away from any noise.We had a lovely room, nicely decorated, with kitchen and fridge. Far better value for money than any of the beach front properties! Staying in town also gives you the option to eat in many of the great value restaurants (beach restaurants are much more expensive and you haven't as much choice). Janet will recommend plenty of places to you but we had some great meals and a laugh at Don Karote at the bottom end of the strip.
We read the numerous glowing reviews of this place, and booked. When we arrived, we immediately knew it was not for us. But we are not everyone, this hotel may please plenty of people, just didn't do it for us.
My husband, 2 1/2 year old son and I stayed in Tulum at the Posada Luna del Sur on December 21, 22 and 23rd, 2005. We thought the little hotel was perfect, clean and Janet was very helpful. She directed us to local resturants and the grocery. Also, she sent us to a perfect stretch of Tulum beach where we spent most days. This hotel is a bargin and I would recommend it to anyone who doesnt need to be directly on the beach. Being in the town of Tulum was a treat. Lots of children, the town square is a perfect place to enjoy an ice cream. If you are noise sensitive, be aware that this gem is in town, and living next door are some turkeys and roosters. The room has only a small refrigerator, no microwave, stove or dishes of any kind. If packing a cooler of sandwiches and drinks for the beach is your idea of spending a day, book here and enjoy.
Wonderful little hotel
Our stay at "Posada Luna del Sur" was very agreeable.
This wonderful little hotel is really "A home away from home".
Everything is clean, confortable and it is a very secure place.
You will find all what you need in the room and functional.
Last but not least, Janet is a great hostess and ready
to give all practical informations like the best place to go
on the "playa", where to take the bus if you are not using
a car, the best restaurant for breakfast or "para cenar", etc.
It is, for sure, the place I will stay on my next visit to Tulum.
Posada Luna Del Sur is an oasis in the town of Tulum. This beautiful, clean and well-maintained hotel is the best option in town. Janet, the owner, is friendly and extremely helpful with suggestions for restaurants and activities, and she is available for anything else you might need. She makes you feel like a guest in her home, not a client, and this enhances the experience greatly. This hotel offers amenities that you will not find in other places in Tulum like air conditioning, a refrigerator and cable TV. While other hotels in the area were doubling or tripling their prices for the New Years busy season, Janet only raised her nightly price from $45 to $60. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area. We will definitely return to Posada Luna del Sur.
I just spent six days in Tulum and kept a room at Posada Luna del Sur and an inexpensive, "rustic" cabana on the beach. Slept at Luna del Sur on the hot nights and showered in its softer water as the cabana lacked electricity and used hard cenote water. The Posada Luna del Sur rooms are quite large and spotlessly clean. Janet helped me find the open laundry and the better restaurants in Tulum.
My girlfriend and I visited Mexico and Tulum for the very first time in late August 2005. At first, we wanted to try staying in one of the low-key cabanas but we were a bit worried as to how hot it would get. As it was our first visit to Mexico we didn't know if the heat and humidity would be too much for us at night. So, we made the following plan, we booked two nights at Posada Luna Del Sur, then two nights at La Conchita (and then, actually, we left a 5th night unbooked to play it by ear).
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Luna del Sur for 3 nights at the end of July 2005. Tulum is an interesting place - by day the town is quite sleepy but comes alive in the evenings and there are countless options for nightlife. The town itself is a taxi or colectivo ride away from the beach and the ruins, but if you don't fancy staying on the beach or in the hostel (i.e. the Weary Traveller - which is very close to the Luna del Sur) a room here is a reasonably priced alternative. The rooms are designed perhaps more for longers stays in the sense there are some kitchen facilities provided, but were perfect for us - clean, quiet, and have a/c. This would be a good place to base yourself for longer whiling exploring this area of the Yucatan - parking is available as well and a car would be handy for getting around Tulum. And of course Janet and her small team will make sure you have a pleasant stay and are always happy to help with any enquiry.
Best place to stay in Tulum
My fiance and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Posada Luna del Sur in Tulum. Janet, the owner, is a graceful hostess who takes excellent care of her guests - from answering requests about the rooms to giving insightful information about the town of Tulum and surrounding areas. Crisanta and her daughter were very kind and helpful, and quite forgiving of our terrible Spanish, as well. The rooms are lovely, comfortable, thoroughly cleaned every day, and an absolute cool oasis in a hot and dusty town. There is no better value in Tulum!
This hotel has been our favorite in the Riviera. The room was lovely and
having a refrigerator was a nice plus. Also the TV and the AC!
The hotel lies in a quiet area of town, away from the noisy highway. The owner is an excellen thostess,
sharing good information about where to go and what to do. Posada Luna del Sur is an excellent value in Tulum!!!
