My friend and I consulted trip advisor to plan our accomodation, and chose Posada Lamar based on the great reviews--to which I will add--with a few small caveats:
1. There are two rooms with two double beds, one upstairs, one downstairs---we stayed in both. They were both beautiful, very clean rooms, but the downstairs had ventilation issues and needs a fan! I like to call it our 'sweat lodge'. I think part of the issue may have been the impending thunderstorm and the heavy, dense air---so it may have otherwise been okay--but my friend and i both spent half the night sweating up a storm and after finally falling asleep woke up at 6:30 a.m to two noisy children upstairs whose parents failed to remind them about their 'inside voices' . All in all it did not make for a happy night's sleep---
That aside, (and possibly a unique circumstance), I really loved the rustic feeling of the bungalows we stayed in. The upstairs was open and airy, with big slatted walls that let the breeze right in. So that was part of letting the outdoors indoors--the other part was all of the interesting little critters that were hanging out. We had an iguana living in the ceiling, a big giant bug in our shower, some really amazing looking waspy insects right outside one of the windows, and a varied assortment of other small insects. So, if you're squeamish about creatures, maybe not the place for you. But if you want a clean, tasteful, bright bungalow where you can relax on your hammock and sip in nature, this is a fantastic choice. We also really loved our host (the one who is there in the afternoon/evening, with her son) she was very helpful and kind. There's no restaurant there but several to choose from nearby as the beach is very long and you can walk the length of it to reach other bungalows-- including posada margharita virtually next door which has excellent food. We were also happy to have an easy walk up to Maya Tulum for yoga which was great. Posada Lamar is just simple, tasteful, clean and comfortable--also great location on the beach and pretty good value compared to other rooms we looked at. I would recommend it, especially if you appreciate good taste and enjoy nature.
