I couldn't think of a single negative thing to say about the hotel (and I'm trying!). The owners, Tony & Cheri, are incredibly friendly, accomodating, available, helpful and fun! They seemed to love Playa more than us and are on a permanent vacation themselves. They are infectious! They'll point you in the right direction and can make arrangements for you and not even ask for payment. Awesome people! On my first trip, I left my car keys in the safe and Cheri was afraid they'd get lost in the Mexican mail so she actually brought them with her the next time she came to California and mailed them to me!
The location is absolutely perfect as it's a block from Avenida Cinco (La Quinta) but around the corner so it's perfectly quiet. It's great because being up at the north end of town means when you start stolling fifth you are already at the beginning! Convenient to restaurants and beach! A tip: For abslutely excellent fish plates, ask Tony & Cheri where El Pirate is (just a couple of blocks north of the tourist area). Incredible mariscos!
We got a fabulous room upstairs that was spotlessly clean and had just been renovated. It was a little suite with separate kitchen and a water cooler. Tile floors thoughout and a/c!
We had the same housekeeper every day and got to be on a first-name basis with her. Very kind and thorough. Her grandson was with her and he was delighted to get small gifts from us.
Be prepared to be blown away when you get there. My brother and I walked into the courtyard and looked at each other after picking our jaws up off the ground and said "Can you believe this?" It is gorgeous! Tranquil, small and lush! It's fabulous at night to stroll out and see all the other visitors on their verandas enjoying the location.
An enthusiastic two thumbs up from us! There's no reason for us to even consider staying anywhere else.
Luna Blue is a small, clean, friendly hotel in a great location in Playa del Carmen. It has become one of the most popular small hotels in Playa (unfortunately making it hard to get reservations sometimes!). It has 18 rooms all facing a gorgeous tropical garden courtyard. It is located in Playa's newer "North Beach" area, which is the quieter end of town. The hotel is only about a half block from 5th Avenue (the main street in town which has all the bars, restaurants, shops, etc.). It's also only two or three blocks to the beach, and the hotel offers free passes to Mamitas Beach Club. American owners, who are onsite most of the time, took over the hotel in 2005 and have made many changes. I've stayed there twice and have another trip planned in January. I've stayed many places in Playa but will keep coming back to Luna Blue.
