Posada La Mar is a tremendous place to stay at the beach in Tulum.. They have a welcoming, friendly, and caring staff. Marcela at the reception greeted me every...

We stayed for a week here and had a great time. We really wanted a beachfront bungalow but since it was not available we wrote before and they offered us to stay 2 nights in a different bungalow and then switched (great service). They even moved our bags for us on the day we switched rooms. We stayed in the...

We had the bengalow Zarfil, with a sea view. It was very pleasant. Staff was very nice. You have no electricity in the room during the day. At night, it works again, but you only have one plug that you want to use for the ventilator… ! The pizza place next to it is excellent, and you get 15% if...

We stayed at the crystal room last month and enjoyed our stay. Adriana, the GM, is incredibly kind and goes out of her way to ensure a pleasant stay. I found all other staff to be equally friendly. The room was very nice and I loved the romantic feeling of the lofted king sized bed. It was hard to leave...

We stayed at Posada Lamar a couple of weeks ago and we were very pleased to be upgraded to a beach front cabin, Rubi. It was incredibly comfortable, which I was not sure would be the case in an eco-lodge. Solar panels and sea water are used for ecological reasons, no A/C or fridge for obvious reasons but didn't need...

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!
