The Posada Luna del Sur, put simply, is marvelous! My 83 year old mother said it best: "If this hotel was a book, it would be named 'CHARMING'!" Janet and Jack, the owners, are the most gracious people you will ever meet. They are friendly, full of helpful advice and suggestions, and go above and beyond to make your stay...

My fiance and I had the pleasure of staying at Posada Luna del Sur last week. This hotel is beautiful! It is immaculate, much cleaner than some four or five star hotels I've stayed at in the states. Also, it has wonderful owners, Janet and Jack, who treated us like family. If we had a question or wondered where to...

This little hotel in the Tulum Pueblo is a gem! We stayed with Janet and Jack for two nights before moving to an upscale boutique hotel on the beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days in Tulum at our home away from home, the Posada Luna del Sur. Janet was a wonderful help in recommending local restaurants and where to find the best beach. At her recommendation we spent one day at Cesiak in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Preserve - lounging on a sparsely populated beach and enjoying an...

My wife and I very much enjoyed our four-night stay at Posada Luna del Sur during late November 2008. We found the owners of the hotel, Janet and Jack, to be very personable, generous, knowledgeable, and helpful without being at all intrusive. The setup of this boutique hotel (e.g., the border wall of the property, courtyard and incense used) made...

The owners of this hotel were so very kind and helpful, I was blown away. They provided many very helpful restaurant, beach and transportation tips! If you want to save a few bucks while also enjoying a few amentities like wifi, purified water, tv & AC, then avoid the beach and stay here!
