We booked here in September 2014 and it was a perfect place. The intimate bungalows and very friendly staff made the whole visit perfect. Having limited power and limited fresh water (showering) was fine and added to the whole experience. But WiFi was good when researching bookings etc. The staff at the front were great and helped us with bookings... More

You will love it! I stayed at Posada Lamar for a week and absolutely loved it. I did not want to leave- which I think is a common response! I had done a lot of research about where to stay and Posada Lamar was perfect. Location- In my opinion you really don't want to stay north of Hemingway, it's rocky... More

Posada Lamar was a fantastic find. I scowered the internet and poured over reviews for weeks until I decided on this spot. We had the ocean front room (Zafira?) and I would highly recommend that one unless you're on a strict budget, as most of the cabanas aren't what one would ever consider "far from the beach". Speaking of the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Posada Lamar for ten days as we celebrated our one year anniversary. We have seen the Lamar the last couple of years when we traveled to Tulum, and my wife picked this hotel to spend our one year anniversary. The Posada Lamar is on a beautiful part of Tulum beach, and it is... More

We stayed at this funky little hotel for four nights in the middle of June and we were so pleased that we did. After looking around on the day we arrived we finally settled on Posada Lamar. I loved the quirky and antique decor! It was cozy, clean, and small with only a few cabins, which we prefer over the... More

My husband, mother and I traveled here in May and we had a wonderful experience. We stayed for 3 nights in cabanas Zafira and Marfil and wish it could have been longer. From the beginning of our stay we were greeted warmly by Adriana, at the front desk, who already knew our names. Adriana had communicated with me in advance... More

the place comes under the so-called eco-chic initiative, one must know what that means before booking. it looks great, you are right on one of mexico's most beautiful beach but there is a but. electricity won't come until 7PM which i can take. but there's only one plug in our "cabana". I was sick and forced to have several trips... More

This was our third visit to Posada Lamar. We stayed in Zafiro on the beach. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff are warm and helpful, but otherwise unobtrusive. We loved lying on our hammock right on the beach and feeling the cool ocean breeze. There really is no better location, or more relaxing spot to unplug and unwind. There... More
