We stayed in Cristal for three nights last week. I arrived a day after my husband and two kids. When I arrived on Wednesday I was shocked how many little red bug bites my daughter had on her face, arms and legs. My husband and son also had a lot of bites. I had read on tripadvisor about bed bug... More

I stayed in bungalow Cristal with my sister for 5 nights. The bungalow is amazing, beautiful, tastefully decorated and with attention to details. Just a couple of things: there is no mirror in the bathroom ( difficult for a man to shave or a lady to do her stuff) and no curtains to some of the windows, so expect light... More

I can't rave enough about this B&B. Simple, tiny and well maintained. I saw reviews of a cabin having bed bugs, but i stayed in cabana marfil and didn't have a problem. You are in the jungle, so there are bugs, but the grounds and cabins are well kept. The staff brings you a lovely breakfast each morning (with plenty... More

This gorgeous beachfront hotel has a major bedbug infestation. I was bitten at least 100 times all over my body in cabaña Zafiro.I always get ravaged by mosquitos and saw no early proof of bedbugs so I was unsure. I complained and they said they have never had bedbugs. However, after showing management the bites all over my body, they... More

The staff here are amazing and we tipped them accordingly. However, after staying in Zafiro I was bitten easily 100 times by bedbugs. We complained, they sprayed and the next morning we found dead bedbugs all over the floor. We canceled our next 3 nights and although it took all day, those nights were refunded. To our horror. ..they had... More

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
