... appendages. We were able to turn of the engine and sail for an hour or thereabouts. Shutting down the engine with its constant vibration and noise is always a treat even if only for a little bit. The highlights for the day included sea turtles and leaping rays. Each turtle’s position was announced by a single seabird standing on it’s back. At times the surface of the sea seemed alive with legions of rays all flying up and out of the water. ...
... things were exactly the same as previous visits: many hours of dedicated sun worship, watching Canada eliminated from the World Junior Championships and, of course, my participation in a highly public exhibition of unimpressive dancing skills (last time a fully documented dance-off, this time handed the reins of a humongous conga line which I proceeded to lead in ever-shrinking circles until it finally collapsed in on itself in a loud, messy confluence ...
... were tastier. Food is not cheap, though not outrageous, but we will probably go out and wander around looking for alternatives tomorrow. We understand the bus to town runs in front of the resort, so we’ll figure that out, once we get pesos.
We worked until nearly sunset, then went for a long walk down (or up) the beach. The sand was fine, the wind was strong. There are many high-rise condos being built, none of which ...
... many restaurants the island had and Tyler got a coconut drink since you can't come to Mexico, especially the beach, and not get one of those. The beach was really long and not crowded at all and once you get past the restaurants it's basically deserted. So all in all it was a really great trip and Mazatlan is a really cute beach town that I would definitely go back to. Now only two weeks until my family comes to Puerto Vallarta and my 21st birthday! :] ...
... old fish tacos but after the first bite it was clear these weren`t that regular (at least to me). They had a thin stripe of cheese melted across the bottom of the tortilla with several shrimp sauteed mojo de ajo style (butter and garlic), with a little lettuce, tomato, and smear of guacamole on each side and a squiggle of mayonaise on top. That and a little bit of salsa ti give it a kick, and Stan was in hog heaven. Sounds simple and it was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Luna Palace Hotel Mazatlan
Great place to stay!
We Stayed at the Luna Palace from May 2-9, and had a wonderful time. The hotel is clean, and comfortable. Every room has an ocean view. The food was delicious, and the drinks were great! The staff is friendly, and helpful. There could have been more activities, and shows, but we were able to keep busy. The pool is kept clean, and has a swim up bar. We were really happy with this hotel, and will definitely return.
A dangerous place
we were sent to luna place hotel by fun jet vacations who described it as deluxe suites. the mould in the rooms smelled so bad we could hardly breathe. the elevator was broken and the stairwell had no lights or handrails and my companion tripped and fell as we were trying to exit the place. this ruined our entire trip.
My family and I have stayed at the Luna Palace 6 of the last 7 years. We have just returned from 2 weeks of vacation and it was wonderful as usual. The activities staff were very attentive to my 10 year old son and 6 year old nephew. The food is good but, with any all inclusive things can get a little boring.The Luna is not the fanciest but is clean and comfortable. The staff is the BEST that I have seen in my 20+ trips to Mexico.
This place was great. We went down over spring break March7-14 and the place was great, good staff, clean rooms, pretty good food (nothin horrible), great drinks and an awesome pool and theater-great actors/dancers. We will definently be back and it is right on the ocean/beach. All rooms are ocean view and it was a good time especially if you don't want to be in the hussle and bussle of down town 24/7. Great times!
We will be back
February 21-28, 2003, first time to Mexico and very pleased. Staying at Luna Palace was a very pleasurable experience. No, it was not the most extravigant hotel, but it was clean and quiet and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. The food was excellent and the drinks superb and made to order. We will DEFINITELY stay at this hotel again on our next trip to Mexico.
as an airline employee, i have been around the world. this is the worst hotel on planet earth. it is dirty, in aweful repair, the staff speaks little to no english, and NO PURIFIED WATER as is common in tourist hotels throughout mexico. after 30 minutes at the luna palace, we left and went to the el cid castilla. if you have even the smallest standards of comfort and quality, spend your money anywhere besides the luna palace.
If one expects the Ritz-Carlton then expect to be disappointed. The Luna Palace isn't a huge (or new resort); it is a small all-inclusive and all-minisuites hotel with a helpful and pleasant staff. It is north of the busy parts of the tourstia area and therefore quite, if that is what you are looking for. The food was good and the air conditioning was perfect for even a summer vacatuib in Mexico (and a.c.'s can be aggrivating even in the most expensive places at that time of year). I recommend it if you want to relax in Mexico and eat and drink as if it is free.
It's a dirty hotel
I can't recommend it, because i was there and the hotel is very dirty, no maintenance, and the worst is " the trash room" on the sidewalk, you walk throught that side and you will smell no nice...please look for other place to stay...Pueblo Bonito is better...
I have been to the Luna Palace 4 times in the past 18 months......It is a beautiful location, and the staff is excellent. The accommodation is good, but the best part is the pool area and beach.
