We stayed in the big ocean front bungalow. Massive 2 storey bungalow with huge terrace. Glass all round lets you fall asleep and wake up with the atlantic ocean in sight. the bungalow had lots of patina and style - a nice change compared to the all-look-the-same concrete bungalows in the neighbouring hotels. excellent breakfast served at your ocean-view terrace....

We stayed there in may 2012. We booked Esmeralda: very nice location with a partial view on the beach ( partial because of the bungalows in front). Nice room with a little garden in front with a hammok. Because there were not so many people, we got upgraded to Rubi: directly in front of the beach with a beautiful private...

We stayed here for 2 nights in March 2012. It's ran by a very friendly lady, the beach huts were very clean and exactly as we expected. This strip of beach was my favourite in Tulum. We moved onto a far more expensive hotel more on the Northern strip of beach and regretted it as it wasn't as nice. The...

Posada Lamar was amazing. We stayed for 9 days in beachfront bungalow Zafiro and it was a really great choice. The whole staff, especially Adriana at the front desk, was very friendly and helpful. They gave us a lot of tips and made us feel very comfortable. Sunny days, healthy breakfast, clean bungalow, beautiful beach and seawater, the sound of...

A family of four parachutes onto the jungle beaches of Tulum and lands in Posada Lamar where they are taken in by kindly folks offering tasteful and characteristic accommodations and thoughtful service. This was June so the heat and bugs were a concern, so remember this: sleep with doors and windows open to capture ocean breezes, keep mosquito net closed...

Posada Lamar exceeded our expectations in every way. Standard stuff: Rooms thoroughly cleaned and trash carried away daily. Sheets, bath towels, and beach towels changed daily. Warm water. Mosquito nets in good repair. 24 hour security, with good security locks on each bungalow. Mattresses are better than I have at home. Wifi connection is secure and mostly reliable (we always...

Posada Lamar's location is good. Situated in the central stretch of hotels on Tulum Beach road, it provides a good alternative to the big resorts. The cabanas are clean, eco-friendly and very nicely . Each cabana is unique in its design and structure, and has it's very own sit-out area and hammocks. But the best thing about Posada Lamar is...

Cute, small, super clean cabanas right on the beach. A bit pricey for what you get--in comparison with similar accomodations in Tulum. Towels, sheets, and facilities were spotless. Staff is friendly but could be more efficient: breakfasts were usually between 30, even 40 minutes late; staff was slow in solving problems in the cabin--and in some some cases they did...

Marfil was awesome and breezy! Beautiful small touches and super relaxing. Manuel was very friendly and helpful. The service was outstanding- helped us set up snorkeling, called us a cab, got us extra water, offered a free cooler to use during our stay. No complaints here except the coffee. But you can just walk to Posada Margarita for a cappuccino!
