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... More

Stayed there for 3 nights (160€ per night). We knew about the electricity but it was not an issue as we spent our day on the beach.

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... More

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... More

Posada La Mar’s strength is its location on a gorgeous white sand beach, but they do have a ways to go to upkeep the property. Our ocean front cabana Zafiro was beautiful with lovely views down the beach. However there is no soap, shampoo or conditioner in the shower. Towels are plentiful! The rooms are cleaned after lunch only. Breakfast... More

I stayed in bungalow Marfil for 3 nights. For those of you who ever stayed on a kibbutz, or went to summer camp, this is Tulum's equivalent. Not the Ritz, not for people who like to stay at the Ritz. The linens and floors were clean. The shower is in an open space with a toilet, and if you wear... More

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

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.

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
