Posada Lamar exceeded our expectations in every way. Standard stuff: Rooms thoroughly cleaned and trash carried away daily. Sheets, bath towels, and beach towels changed daily. Warm water. Mosquito nets in good repair. 24 hour security, with good security locks on each bungalow. Mattresses are better than I have at home. Wifi connection is secure and mostly reliable (we always...

Posada Lamar's location is good. Situated in the central stretch of hotels on Tulum Beach road, it provides a good alternative to the big resorts. The cabanas are clean, eco-friendly and very nicely . Each cabana is unique in its design and structure, and has it's very own sit-out area and hammocks. But the best thing about Posada Lamar is...

Cute, small, super clean cabanas right on the beach. A bit pricey for what you get--in comparison with similar accomodations in Tulum. Towels, sheets, and facilities were spotless. Staff is friendly but could be more efficient: breakfasts were usually between 30, even 40 minutes late; staff was slow in solving problems in the cabin--and in some some cases they did...

Marfil was awesome and breezy! Beautiful small touches and super relaxing. Manuel was very friendly and helpful. The service was outstanding- helped us set up snorkeling, called us a cab, got us extra water, offered a free cooler to use during our stay. No complaints here except the coffee. But you can just walk to Posada Margarita for a cappuccino!

Such a special location! Impecable, warming, welcoming and efficient staff. Really beautifull, natural cabannas made on recylcled materials with pretty good taste. Great habit of cutting electricity form midnight on. Lighting in the rooms to be improved. The rest, simply perfect. Special thanking mention to Adriana on the reception. Somewhere to recommend....or maybe to keep in secret!

Everything was great, the place, the service, the location. The only thing that really bothered me was this guy at the front desk (evening shift), that i caught drinking alcohol, Everything was great, but I need to mention this for the hotel to take some action, and I don't want to blame the whole place for 1 persons mistake. Besides...
