The accommodations at Posada Lamar were absolutely amazing. Flavio and the staff did a wonderful job of offering up tips on where to go during the day, where to eat, and making our trip so enjoyable. Breakfast every morning was delicious and we would love to go back!

Wow, i can not believe it took me so long to review this amazing gem in Tulum! My wide and I came to Tulum for 2 weeks for our honeymoon and spent a week of it in the gorgeous Rubi cabin at Posada Lamar. I just can't say enough lovely things about this place! First, our rooms - the rooms...

Rustic bungalows, beautiful setting. About a 5 minute taxi ride into town, very close to some great restaurants further down the beach. Staff were very accommodating, able to provide us with a room after there was a mix up with our reservation. We were given great recommendations for food nearby by one of the team, which were brilliant. Only negative...

Posada Lamar is located about 10mins drive from the Pueblo, the town center. The beach is semi-private. Most others on the beach are staying at one hotel or another on it, but of course others come. We were there in late June/early July...the beach was drowning in seaweed and the ocean was the regular blue (not turquoise as we'd hoped),...

We just got back from our 2nd trip to Posada Lamar. The room, staff, beach, breakfast..all of it is just wonderful. Both times were just so lovely and they really went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. I have recommended Posada to at least 30 people for good reason. Adriana and Lolo are beyond wonderful. We stayed in...

I stayed recently at Posada Lamar with a friend for a quick spur-of-the-moment trip, and our experience was positive overall. The hotel is right on the beach and there are ample loungers, chairs, day beds, etc. for the size of the hotel. There's even a nice set of tables, chairs and and outdoor sofa in the shade, too. There's a...

We stayed at the Pasada Lamar for a few days during a cavern/cave diving trip in June 2015. The resort can best be described as an Eco resort and we were on location during the hot/rainy season. You should expect the breezes to flow through the room even with some rain. Also, given the thatched roofing there was always water...

I just returned from a 4 night stay in Posada Lamar and can only say positive reviews!! We stayed in Marfil. Marfil was amazing! We had our own little patio and it was very private. The breakfast every morning was amazing and it was so relaxing to sit on our own little private patio and listen to the ocean. The...

We returned to Posada Lamar, this time staying in Marfil, then back to Zafiro (our favorite). Great breezes in Zafiro, decent in Marfil. Love having a little patio to call our own for breakfast and afternoon lazy time. They took great care of the beach, and getting food and drinks at Coralina next door is easy. The bed in Zafiro...

We love coming to Tulum and staying in this cozy small hotel. We either get Marisol or Esmerelda for our cabana. The breakfast in the morning is wonderful, fresh fruit, yogurt with granola, great coffee and orange juice along with homemade bread- yum! They are now providing guests with a cooler, so you can fill with beer and ice. Only...
