We stayed 3 nights at Posada Lamar and loved it. It was our first time in Tulum and what a magical place. Such a relaxing and beautiful environment. Our room was Cristal, with one king bed in an upstairs loft and a double bed on the main floor. Bed was very comfortable, with a mosquito net around the outside. Great breeze through the numerous windows, very neat thatched roof that didn't leak despite the downpour we had that lasted all afternoon and all night the first night of our stay. You are just steps from the beach and can hear the waves crashing.
Room was very clean, they did a great job cleaning every afternoon, and getting all the sand out!
Plenty of bottled water was provided, and nice soft beach towels too. Water pressure in the shower was decent, and there was always hot water which was nice. Our friend was staying at a hotel down the road and he took a couple ice cold showers. Not a problem at Posada Lamar.
Adrianna, the lovely lady who runs the hotel, was very nice and helpful. This place is Eco friendly, so there is electricity in the rooms only from 5pm to 7am. There are no outlets in the rooms, but you can charge phones, computers, etc in a secure area in the lobby. They also have free 24 hour WiFi.
Delicious breakfast served on your porch at the time of your choice included with your stay. Comfy lounge chairs and hammocks setup right on the beach.
I felt extremely at home here, very safe and I'd definitely stay here again!

A real gem.! Good prices, super big room w comortable king sized bed and a private big porch where breakfast is served. The picture we saw beforehand really did not do it justice. We stayed in Ambar room and it was lovely. A memorable and very Tulum-y hotel that I highly recommend.

Room Tip: Loved the Ambar room, w "garden view".

Wonderful cabanas on the beach - all en-suite - great value. Hear the sound of the ocean as you go to sleep. Breakfast brought to your little terrace every morning and there is also off street parking. Carlos was really helpful and very friendly - always there to greet us with a big smile.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the 1 rooms at the beach

We loved our stay at Posada Lamar. Easy parking, good location kind of in the middle but on the southern side (south side beaches are nicer in my opinion), healthy delicious breakfasts, pristine beach front, comfortable beds with very nice mosquito nets, and nice lounge chairs/mattresses for napping. All the employees are very accommodating and helpful!

My fiance and I just returned from a gorgeous 5 night stay in Tulum. Our lovely trip was made possible by the incredible staff at Posada Lamar. Carlos and Adrianna greeted us and treated us with such humanity that we will always return to this place. The casitas are artistically built just a few sandy steps from the water. There is a rustic feel at this place that provides precisely the atmosphere we both love. The rooms are clean and beautiful without even a touch of pretentiousness. The morning breakfast of tropical fruits, granola, yogurt and coffee was a perfect start to each relaxing day. The staff and artistic feel at Posada Lamar demonstrate the soul of beautiful Tulum, Mexico. We can't wait to get back there. Enjoy.

Room Tip: The two water front rooms are called Zephire and Ruby, try to book one of those rooms if you can. Bu...
