We loved Posada Lamar! We stayed there for 6 nights with our two daughters and everything was perfect: from the wonderful beach, to the six beautifully decorated cabanas that are very spacious (ours, Crystal, had two floors) and all of them have a patio or terrace where you can hang out and have the wonderful fresh breakfast served every morning....

For me and my girlfriend this was the first accommodation of our trip, and what a start! We were welcomed by a very helpful host(sorry am very bad with names) who showed us our room and directed towards a good place for dinner. We were in Esmeralda and the room was very spacious and clean with a nicely sized bed... More

Ok, my wife really liked this place but I wasn't so keen. As I say the more you pay the less you get. It seems to me nowadays that if you want to make a lot of money you find a nice spot put a shake up call it Eco and get people to pay you lots for the privillage.... More

my husband and i recently returned from a weeklong trip to tulum and isla mujeres. posada lamar was hands down our favorite place to stay. i was worried that $175/night for a room in mexico was a little insane, but i wouldn't think twice again to rebook for such a relaxing and quiet escape. our bungalow, marfil, felt secluded and...

We would not recommend this hotel, there are many other options around Tulum. During our stay in Posada Lamar our cabin "Esmeralda" was broken into, our iPads and other valuables were stolen. As soon as we realized what happened we called the police who confirmed the thief broke a window and gained access to the room. During this time there... More

Very nice place even if it are simple cabanas. The bungalows are very pretty and authentic. The bathroom is quite rustic. We stayed at other place on the beach of tulum and honestly it's not the best place. It's quiet expensive for the quality and cleanliness provided. There were weird ramping insects in the bathroom. For the rest it's very... More

Posada Lamar exceeded our expectations. It was breathtaking and unbelievable. It is NOT a resort, it IS rustic and full of charm and right on the most beautiful beach in the world. I wish I was there right now actually. And obviously a nice beach and comfortable accommodations make a trip awesome, but so do amazing people, and that's what... More

This place is spectacular. Very low key with an outstanding view. Rooms are exactly what we were looking for, a room with a place to sleep, go to the washroom, and shower. The hospitality by the staff was unbelievable. My wife lost her glasses in the surf the first day and Carlos at the front desk called an optometrist and... More

Posada Lamar is a small property located right on the beach. It offers a variety of accommodations. We stayed in the Rubi cabana, which is the smaller of the two ocean front units. The cabana was fairly good sized and the bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve slept on in Mexico. It had the requisite mosquito netting over... More

I stayed at Posada La Mar with my son (7 years old) and two friends in June 2013. My son and I stayed in Zafiro - one of the beach front rooms. Zafiro has a balcony. We sat there for meals, drinks and relaxation. At night there was a cool breeze and it kept the bugs away. I was so... More
