First, the hotel was roots, but this is what I expected. When you wake up in the morning, the sunrise is breathtaking! We stayed Zafiro, which is the best choice. Spend the extra money....completely worth it! There was a night where we didn't have any running water for a few hours, but staff was working on the problem. Adriana and...

We have oh-so very busy lives! Back in June, we decided to book a trip to Tulum, Mexico. We decided to spend our entire holiday -3 weeks, in Tulum. It is always a little daunting to pick a place from so far away with very little information to go with. We based our decision on the Trip advisor reviews and...

I stayed here in January with my wife. We spent a few nights at Teetotum in town and moved to Posado Lamar to have a few days on the beach. We loved just hanging out in rubi right on the beach and walking around the beach during the day checking out all the good spots to hang out. For just...

We with a wife had a very relaxing and romantic stay in Posada Lamar. Ecological bungalow on the sea shore. Nice design, good location. Friendly, helpful staff. It was sad to leave it and we hope to come back.

We recently spent 3 wonderful nights at Posada Lamar by a shear stroke of good luck! After arriving in Cancun 5 hours late...and now in the dark... we got our rental car...and now breaking my own safety rule of never highway driving in Mexico after dark...headed south with intentions of making Akumal or Tulum...missed the Akumal turnoff and ended up...

and even better than the first visit two years ago. this time we stayed in zafiro, the larger bungalow by the sea. while it didn't have the cross breeze of the garden bungalow we had stayed in previously, it had large front windows and a beautiful deck overlooking the sea. what i love best about posada lamar is the organic...

We stayed in the big ocean front bungalow. Massive 2 storey bungalow with huge terrace. Glass all round lets you fall asleep and wake up with the atlantic ocean in sight. the bungalow had lots of patina and style - a nice change compared to the all-look-the-same concrete bungalows in the neighbouring hotels. excellent breakfast served at your ocean-view terrace....

We stayed there in may 2012. We booked Esmeralda: very nice location with a partial view on the beach ( partial because of the bungalows in front). Nice room with a little garden in front with a hammok. Because there were not so many people, we got upgraded to Rubi: directly in front of the beach with a beautiful private...

We stayed here for 2 nights in March 2012. It's ran by a very friendly lady, the beach huts were very clean and exactly as we expected. This strip of beach was my favourite in Tulum. We moved onto a far more expensive hotel more on the Northern strip of beach and regretted it as it wasn't as nice. The...

Posada Lamar was amazing. We stayed for 9 days in beachfront bungalow Zafiro and it was a really great choice. The whole staff, especially Adriana at the front desk, was very friendly and helpful. They gave us a lot of tips and made us feel very comfortable. Sunny days, healthy breakfast, clean bungalow, beautiful beach and seawater, the sound of...
