We stayed 5 nights at Posada Lamar during our honeymoon to Mexico in the Lapiz Bungalow. The position of the hotel was great, on a beautiful stretch of beach, far from the rocks and seaweed that are found along the first 1-3km stretch of the road leading to the hotel. Our Bungalow (Lapiz) was situated behind Zafiro (beachfront) with great sea views from our good sized patio. We chose Lapiz as we were worried that Zafiro would be to exposed to the elements- wind, sun etc... but after getting a sneak peak into the Zafiro bungalow on our last day during cleaning we decided that if we were to ever come back ti Tulum we would ask for the Zafiro bungalow. Our bungalow was great however- one of the most private due to its height (Ruby and Marfil are pretty much at ground level) where as Zafiro and Lapiz are suspended on stilts. Even though the garden bungalows seemed delightful and much more private, I would recommend a beach view/front bungalow as on a few occasions we found some little critters in Lapiz so I can imagine there would be many more insects present in the garden bungalows. The staff were very friendly and available to answer questions we had throughout our stay. Our breakfast was served daily on the patio. Even though hot dishes such as scrambled eggs were available at an extra cost we found that the included breakfast of yogurt, fruit, granola, juice etc... was more than sufficient to get a good start to the day. Taxi rides to Tulum Pueblo cost approx. 50 MXP (the equivalent of about 2-3 euros which we found reasonable. We reccommend the El Tabano Restaurant 5 mins walk down the road for anyone willing to experience a good night out. Posada Margherita is also great if you are after an Italian meal- but a bit in the pricey side.
