I've never been to a remote, cabanas-only vacation spot...and these guys made the whole trip! The staff, especially Carlos and Adriana, were great...always there to help with whatever you needed. I read the stories about theft and danger and was a little hesitant, but my experience at Posada Lamar was completely the opposite! I went to check in a little early and my room wasn't ready, and I had to go on a dive...all of my bags (some of them open) were left near the front desk...and keep in mind the front desk area is completely OPEN, it's more like a small pavilion. When I got back 4 hours later, all my stuff was neatly in my room awaiting my arrival (money, passport, credit cards, IDs, everything!).
The front desk truly is 24 hours, though if you need something late at night it helps to speak a little Spanish. The cabanas were spacious and clean (well, THEY kept it clean...the elements and mother nature did everything to sabotage that). Complimentary breakfasts were a perfect start to the mornings. I went solo for a wedding, but to truly take advantage of this place's ambience and location (perfectly suited within walking distance of anything I needed, either on the road or beach), I'd go as a couple. Actually the only thing I'd have to 'complain' about is that there is no power outlet in the rooms to charge phones, laptops, etc. For someone who reads mostly off my phone and Kindle, that was a little annoying to have to go to the front desk to charge everything...but then again, if you're gonna be on your phone or laptop the whole time, then DON'T go to Tulum...it's made for you to 'Get Away' from all that!!!
Thanks again guys, I'll definitely be back!!!
