This hotel is literally right on the river--it's amazing! The view, the sounds, the relaxing ambiance. Rooms are not big, and are somewhat rustic, with a large balcony right on the water! It's amazing! Marga and Manuel are the owners and they give you first class personal service. Breakfast and other meals are made to order at any time you wish, tours are arranged for you and Marga will even run to the store if there is anything you need. This is a small hotel with only 4 rooms, so you get very personal service. We had a wonderful stay on the river!

Room Tip: Definitely get a room on the water if you can! We had room #2.

Rio Del Luna was a good place to stay the people were very friendly and very helpful the rooms were clean yet rustic right on the river. Given the location it was more than adequate and a comfortable safe place to spend two nights before pursuing on Eastward to the mosquito Coast.

We stayed at Hotel Luna del Rio last month, we've met Marga and Manuel before but it was our first time at the hotel and it was amazing! The hotel is proudly an eco hotel and clearly Marga and Manuel took this into consideration when they started this project. Rooms are great and feature a/c, a comfortable bed, hot water and the decor overall is just lovely. Some rooms have a terrace with views to the river and rapidos... a hanging chair was the perfect item for us! Oh and I must mention how LOVELY breakfast is! Tasty and quite balanced; the best part to us was how kind and attentive Marga and Manuel are; you really feel like you're home there. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect place, beautiful, clean. Enjoy the river, trips to fish, see animals. Thanks to Marga and Manuel for taking care of us, for waking up at four to prepare breakfast before departure, for all the little things that made our time there unforgettable.

A small but beautiful hotel. Everything is eco friendly, and it looks beautiful! Staff is very friendly and helpful.

They cooked breakfast just for us and it was really good. The view on the river is also very good. One small downside is the roaster living next door. He woke up at 3 in the morning... Didnt mind it though, all part of the experience :)

Definitely recommend!
