Posada Lamar is wonderful. My three friends and I stayed in the Cristal bungalow. We loved it. It had two comfortable beds, a simple bathroom and a patio. When we walked out the door we were literally 100 feet from the beach... It was amazing. Adriana and the staff are excellent. They brought our breakfast to us each morning and... More

We loved our experience there... the fresh guacamole, the water provided and the kindness by the staff! Great for a romantic trip or girls trip! We stayed in Cristel and loved it... next time I would love to stay in the one right on the beach!

My beautiful bride and I honeymooned for four nights in Tulum at Posada Lamar after our wedding and week-long stay in Playa del Carmen. This place presented exactly what we were searching for when we booked -- a relaxing getaway after an eventful week with friends and family surrounding our ceremony. This was our first trip to Tulum, but during... More

Simply gorgeous rustic cabanas right on the beach. We loved it. Do understand what it is, and isn't, before you book. There is no electricity during the day, no a/c at all, no coffee maker in the room, no mini fridge, lots of sand. If any of that is a problem, go stay in an all-inclusive up the coast -... More

I don't even know where to start... We took our honeymoon to Tulum and stayed in Esmeralda. The bungalow is beautiful, artisan, and simply perfect with the open bathroom, high thatched roof ceiling, and outdoor sitting area (staring at the sea). The handmade quality of the whole property is inspiring and original. Bring books, it's a delightful way to pass... More

We stayed 5 nights in Marfil. Beach was beautiful and staff always helpfull and smiling, 5 stars for this. There's no electricity during the day and when they turn on generator and you have more then one device to charge, you have to do that at reception, because in the bungalow is only one plug. Breakfast was very basic (yoghurt... More

We spent 5 nights at Posada Lamar in early January 2015. We travel quite frequently to Costa Rica for warm weather retreat but enjoyed Tulum for 5 days with friends and this was a wonderful stay. Wonderful staff, quaint beach cottages right on the ocean. I never missed air conditioning and I have to say was the most comfortable mattress... More

We checked in at 10pm and the lady was there waiting for us and was so welcoming! All the rooms are within a minute's walk from the beach, we stayed in Esmeralda and we could hear the waves as we slept. Breakfast consists of yoghurt and granola, tropical fruit, a couple of slices of bread with butter and jam, freshly... More

We stayed 3 nights in early December in Marfil. Room was fine, bed comfortable, nice linens. We definitely needed the mosquito net, despite the screened windows. We didn't mind the lack of electricity during the evening hours. Breakfast was great - fresh fruit, plenty of coffee, yogurt, nice bread, butter and jam. But it was scheduled a bit late (8... More

We stayed at Posada Lamar over Christmas and New Year 2014 and it was so lovely. Adriana and Carlos are so hospitable and helpful.We had the double room at the back of the property with two big beds. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. We loved going to sleep under the mosquito nets, just like princesses. There is... More
