Fine rooms, marvelous breakfast, near the nature, quite, calm. Just 50 meter from a lovely beach, 200 meter to nearest restaurant. A couple of restaurants around to choose from. Little too long way to nearest shop. Irritating that there was a constructions site as neighbor,

This review would have been far less than favourable if we had not been able to move to one of the rooms nearer the beach. On arrival we were shown to a room that was very close to the very noisy building work next door. Obviously unhappy about paying full whack for this with no mention of discount, we started...

Posada LaMar is not a large property but is grand in it's presentation. The styling and appointments are wonderful. Breakfast brought to your room each morning with fresh juice and coffee is a wonderful treat. The beach is lovely and the location great.

Posada Lamar is a quiet, secluded, small property featuring only a few rooms. This is such a nice welcome from some of the larger, scenier spots on Tulum. Some very minor investments would make this place more of a gem: 1. valet parking (the tiny lot means that there isn't enough room for all cars to enter and exit. If...

We stayed here for 3 nights in September and had a great time. Rooms were very tastefully appointed and breakfast was good, with lots of fresh seasonal fruits. The entire property was well maintained and clean. Ioana was very helpful, gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants. Property is right next to the ocean and somewhat private. Restaurants are just walking...

My wife and I visited Tulum over two years ago, staying for two weeks at three different places, each one unique and beautiful in its own way. We stayed at Posada Lamar during the middle of our trip and absolutely loved every moment. The cabana was simple, imaginatively built and simply perfect for us. Private but also open: on the...

We went at Posada Lamar at end of July and we had the best vacation thanks to Posada Lamar! The location of the hotel is amazing! We stayed at the Esmeralda room which is exactly in front the ocean, with breathless view! It was clean and the staff was very helpful and polite! The breakfast was tropical and we also...

The only positive aspect here... location. The owners do not show pride on the hotel and service is weak and not polite. Light only a few hours of the day, so be ready to be on total darkness from 5am and if you have the last rooms on the resort. Not as clean as expected. We moved to a diferent...

My husband and I stayed in Esmerelda for 10 blissful days. The location is on a great stretch of beach with restaurants, drinks and amenities in walking distance but isolated enough that you can relax. Yes, you need to make peace without the conveniences of a typical hotel but this is easy when you are enjoying the beauty of this...
