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

We are so happy that we chose Posada Lamar as our accommodation in Tulum, it was absolutely perfect for what we wanted! I had been traveling around Mexico with my husband, our 2 year old daughter & my mother, and Tulum was meant to be a relaxing end to a hectic road trip... And it was so much more than... More

Best location cabanas on the beach right in front of the ocean. Slept with the sound of the waves. Clean, cozy and very comfortable. We haven't seen even one mosquito!!! We loved Adriana she was extremely helpful with the tips on what to eat & see around. The breakfast served each morning on our terrace made us really happy.

Posada Lamar is a wonderful place to stay.My wife and I were there for 8 days and we didn't have one problem in all that time. The staff are wonderful - kind and helpful - and nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for the ideal place to get away from it all - look no further than... More

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
