Playa Media Luna Hotel is an intimate beach hotel, all decorated in soft colors with traditional Mexican style. Release yourself and come to a place devoted to relaxation, Isla Mujeres. The quiet and beautiful Hotel Playa la Media Luna, offers you the most comfortable oceanfront accommodations on the quaint and secluded; Half Moon Beach Hotel.

Enjoy the incredible views and sound of the Caribbean waters, sink your toes into the loveliest white sand full of tiny colorful shells. Admire the sunrise from your room; let your footprints be the first on the beach, let yourself go... This small property is ideally located on the secluded Half Moon Beach; on the Northern tip of Isla Mujeres.

The half Moon Beach; took its shape from being a natural barrier reef with vibrant undersea life. Downtown area is only four blocks south. Find a treasure waiting into the little handicraft and jewelry shops and enjoy restaurants of every specialty.

A two minutes walk from your room takes you to the reef protected north beach with its calm, shallow turquoise waters ideal for swimming. Take advantage of your roofed terrace on a beach chair or lying in a fresh Mayan hammock while you surrender to the sound of the ocean or even better; get a relaxing massage in the privacy of your own terrace.

A wide variety of tropical drinks is available to order from your room or while you are resting by the pool. The fresh water pool seems to hover over the ocean inviting you to skin into its waters.

Complimentary continental breakfast is served in the hotels dining room for a better start of your daily stay with Hotel Playa La Media Luna.

Looks better in pictures

This hotel is clean, but it needs to be updated dramatically. The beds and bedding look to be about 15 years old and the rooms are slightly better than those I have stayed at in a hostel. The outdoor pool area was very pretty and honestly if they remodeled, this could be a great place. But, I would only rank it a 2 right now. It was simply a bed to sleep in, it did the job, but nothing more. I honestly would pay a little more and stay at a nicer place next time.

Go to the North Shore beach, it is the prettiest. I felt safe walking around the touristy areas of the island by myself at night.

Fantastic family getaway

This 18 room hotel was perfect for our 6 room family vacation. Comfy beds, beautiful views from our terraces and balconies. A pool right out the door, views of crashing waves, sand beach, rocks... Very convenient to a variety of excellent restaurants and shops. We wished there was a food outlet onsite, and we wished the snorkeling was right outside our door, but this is a wonderful island to visit. Great snorkeling is an interesting cab ride away. The island feels safe, the folks are friendly, not pushy. It is unique in our Mexico visits. No cruise ships! We loved the place and the hotel. We would definitely return.

Instead of going to the G. National Park for snorkeling ($60) go to the private park (G. de Castilla) next door ($5!), same wonderful snorkeling. Both are a taxi ride from town for less than $10.

Nice new find... walk to town and Playa Norte

2nd time to Isla, loved location,,,we had rain in the beginning of our stay but beautiful views with a hammock on our deck. Very continental breakfast though it worked, fridge in room, microwave to share in breakfast room (fresh water there also). Free wi-fi in lobby only. Rented a golf cart after rain stopped, love Zama on other side of Island,,,beautiful pools and great staff!

They give you shampoo and soap every day, no conditioner or hair dryer. Tile floors so ask for extra floor mats.

Not as pictured

The room was old, couldn't adjust the color on the TV so we had to watch a yellow TV all week. The floors were so dirty we has to wash our feet before going to bed every night. The fridge made an annoying noise about every hour so we didn't get much sleep the 1st few days, think we finally got used to it by the end of the week. The reviews raved about the beds being comfy; what a joke they were hard and lumpy. The only thing good about this Hotel is the view. Our previous trip we stayed at the Privilege Aluxes and it was gorgeous, very clean, nice TV and no weird noises from the fridge, guess where we will be staying when we return?????? We do love Isla Mujeres.

Outstanding location

We had a wonderful time staying at Hotel Playa de la Media Luna. We were looking right out on a small secluded beach and fell asleep each night to the crashing of the waves. The room was clean and comfortable, although the shower never got warmer than tepid. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is perfect as it is just a short walk from all the main beaches and the downtown. We definitely intend to revisit.

Beautiful location and view. Close enough to the action!

My girlfriend and i just stayed at Media Luna and were wholly impressed. We stayed in room 2. Room 2 was a ground floor 2 double beds room. We open up our patio door and have a personal hammock. 20 feet farther is a pristine pool overlooking the waves crashing from the Caribbean. Normally when we are on Isla Mujeres we wake up and leave the hotel and head to North Beach (Chi Chi Charlies). Not this time. We will go to Hotel Playa Media Luna again!!!!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you rent a golf cart, go visit the Middle and South points of the island. There are Beach Clubs all up and down the East side where you can have a cocktail and feel as if you own the island. Playa Mexico was our favorite. Daily from 12-2 Playa Mexico has tours from Cancun boat over for $13 USD all you can eat and drink. Join right in and save some money!!! any other time the beach club is all yours!!!!!

PERFECT BEACH HOTEL FOR RELAXING VACATION!

Oh, wow what can we say, except this little hotel was wonderful. We arrived on March 27th and stayed 7 nights. We were surprised that it looked better on site than in the pics. The view is gorgeous and you can sleep with the windows open and listen to the ocean waves all the time. The place only has 20 rooms and they are all ocean view. We had a ground level floor with a very comfortable King Bed, Room #10. Very romantic, nice big walk-in tiled shower. It had a patio with hammock and chairs and was a perfect view of the pool and ocean. We loved the convenience of having a fridge, so that we could come to our room for drinks. The beach in front of the pool area is lovely and small, but you can walk a path to the north beach with no problem. Or you can walk to the south and walk the malecon. The room was cleaned every day and we had plenty of towels. The free continental breakfast is good too. Fruit, toast, donuts, or rolls and coffee and tea. We definitely will stay here again, because it was so relaxing and not crowded and felt very private.

There are plenty of restaurants nearby on Hildago Ave. It is a street that is blocked off from traffic. You will find something to eat for sure. We walked everywhere. Rent a golf cart for the day or 24 hrs and go around the island. Lots of fun!

Perfect Location!

Best of all worlds! Great view if you like to watch the waves roll in. Quite, uncrowded location if you want to be left alone. Perfect if you like to go for long walks along the beach in either direction. Close to North Beach if you like the crowded beach scene. Easy walk to "restaurant row" for dining. Comfortable beds. Nice pool. What more could you ask for. We'll be back!

Use ATMs to get your pesos rather than pay in dollars and get ripped off on the exchange rate. The ATMs always give you the up to the minute real exchange rate.
