Playa Perfecto

We really enjoyed our week at Luna A1. Close to the pool and playa so the choice is yours for the making. Beautiful views from the outdoor eating area. Highly recommend.

Amazing getaway! Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The listing for this rental seemed too good to be true so I was honestly a little nervous. It was absolutely perfect.

Traveling with my husband, our two little ones (1- and 3-year-old) and our mother-in-law, the condo was a perfect size, beautiful, clean and with an amazing view. Having access to the pool without having to walk down steps was such a blessing because otherwise we would have been running up and down stairs with the kiddos all day long. The beach is amazing. Edgar, who has been mentioned several times in these reviews, is there to set up chairs and umbrellas for you. The complex even has a (big!) set of sand toys for the little ones. Also, you can order food and drinks if you like from the place next door and they'll deliver right to your chair. Everything was super chill and relaxing.

The staff on site was so lovely and indulged my three-year-old as he practiced Spanish. We had one problem with the dishwasher while we were there. The management company had someone come in to take a look right away. While ultimately, it was not able to be fixed (a full replacement was called for), the cleaning staff cleaned our dishes for us on the days that they came to clean.

The location of the condo is similarly great. There are a few big grocery stores about a 10 to 15-minute walk away and if you're willing to venture up 5th avenue we found a great produce store as well as two organic food stores if that's your thing. There are restaurants everywhere and as you meander north, things just get continually nicer/more interesting. We didn't see anything else like Luna Encantada setup on the parts of the beach we walked.

We're already planning our next trip back.

Christmas week was great.

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife, two kids, in-laws, and me) spent the week at Luna A1, a 3 bedroom unit. The location is awesome! It is right on the beach and is only one block to 5th.

Santiago took great care of us on beach, delivering drinks and food and always having our beach chairs ready.

We would go back in a heartbeat!

Luna Encantada A1 is Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Luna multiple times over the years and have chosen this unit specifically for our last two stays. It is impeccably maintained, beautifully decorated and feels immediately like home when we arrive. The complex is well-maintained and the beach and infinity pool are beautiful. We love this beach front complex in Playa and we love this unit! Everything we need is there. We recommend this unit and can't wait to come back! The owner has done a wonderful job of creating home away from home for their guests -
