My husband and I stayed in Marfil for 4 nights and enjoyed the wonderful beachfront views, breezes, yummy breakfasts, and super nice staff. The staff do a great job of maintaining the beach, paths, and flora. It is convenient to the beach road attractions, beach bars, as well as a short ride into town. Comfy bed and an open concept...

Please be careful when you book Posada because the rate is too high vs quality! There are better posadas in the area for same price. We have paid 150usd / night for 6 nights When we arrived we found that this Posada is really bad! Electricity is only available from 7pm to 6am. Our room was so dark with only... More

Hi, Ana. Thank you for the comments and observations, they are very important to us because they make our services better. Effectively we use solar energy because we are engaged on having a different dynamics than big cities' pace. The time for energy usage (8pm to 6am) is informed in your arrival and in your reservation confirmation mail as well.... More

This enjoyable hotel has a beautiful beach with soft sand, shallow water, and nice waves. It's perfect for a swim at day or night with incredible sunrise view in the morning. Posada La Mar is a tremendous place to stay at the beach in Tulum.. They have a welcoming, friendly, and caring staff. Marcela at the reception greeted me every... More

We stayed for a week here and had a great time. We really wanted a beachfront bungalow but since it was not available we wrote before and they offered us to stay 2 nights in a different bungalow and then switched (great service). They even moved our bags for us on the day we switched rooms. We stayed in the... More

Not sure when they last maintained this hotel or did any type of.renovation. compared to other hotels around this is expensive. Today i am... More

We had the bengalow Zarfil, with a sea view. It was very pleasant. Staff was very nice. You have no electricity in the room during the day. At night, it works again, but you only have one plug that you want to use for the ventilator… ! The pizza place next to it is excellent, and you get 15% if... More

We stayed at the crystal room last month and enjoyed our stay. Adriana, the GM, is incredibly kind and goes out of her way to ensure a pleasant stay. I found all other staff to be equally friendly. The room was very nice and I loved the romantic feeling of the lofted king sized bed. It was hard to leave... More

We stayed at Posada Lamar a couple of weeks ago and we were very pleased to be upgraded to a beach front cabin, Rubi. It was incredibly comfortable, which I was not sure would be the case in an eco-lodge. Solar panels and sea water are used for ecological reasons, no A/C or fridge for obvious reasons but didn't need... More
