Posada Real Puerto Escondido
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We had been to Huatulco many times but this was our first time in Puerto Escondido. We just wanted to see something a bit different.We got in late Saturday afternoon after about a two hour shuttle ride (the first part of the ride is a bit hairy by the way) and checked in quickly. It has more of a hotel feel to it as opposed to a resort, but the rooms were fine and it was clean. There is no in room safe but there are lockboxes that require a two key entry at the front desk and it was fine and possibly more secure than some of the in room safes at other places.We really keep to ourselves when we travel and feel no need to be pampered by anyone. That being said, the staff was friendly and attentive. We did not do the full all inclusive based on other reviews so I can't comment on the food other than the buffet looked fine to me. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance so we ate out for breakfast and dinner everyday and hung out at the Coco Club and ate croissants (aka cuernitos) from the local bakery and other baked goods for lunch with a few beers and "Cuba libres."This is a Pepsi only resort for those who care. We prefer Coca Light but sometimes you just roll with it. Cabs are cheap by the way-- 30 to 45 pesos max.The Coco Club has lots of shady palapas to sit under and this late in the season it was completely uncrowded. Sitting by the beach, going for walks, napping in the shade were great. If you are hungry you can order from the snack bar/restaurant . We only did this once for chips and salsa and guacamole. We jokingly called the walk down to the beach "the stairs of death" (112 stair steps) but it was our choice to walk since they offer a shuttle. The surf is rough but we knew this going in-- it is clearly posted in many spots to not swim, but it is beautiful.Ricardo was the bartender and Flor was a waitress and they are friendly and take good care of the guests.There were a couple of guys on the beach who got oysters every day and sold them for 160 pesos a dozen. I got adventurous and tried them and they were very good and obviously fresh. A squeeze of lime and a touch of hot sauce and they are good. There is a bit of risk health wise I suppose.....The sunsets over the ridge are wonderful. We turn in early and by 930-1000 pm all is quiet.I felt very comfortable walking down the roads near the resort, but not so much near Zicatela beach. The waves there are awesome, but it just didn't give a warm fuzzy feeling on that side of town.All said we really enjoyed our vacation at Posada Real.
We have been here for a heavenly ten days and will find it tough to leave shortly. Simply put, it is a great little hotel. We never tire of its laid back charm, stunning location, professional and warm staff, brilliant beach club, excellent food and fine tour service Pascon Travel.The management of the staff is encouraging and supportive and these fine people, who do not always speak much English are as helpful and supportive as possible. A very friendly environmen.to say the least -like being home.We have enjoyed all of the changing buffets and some particularly tasty Mexican and Oaxaca specialties. The bartenders and wait staff are flriendly and efficient. Special thanks to Vladimir, Oliver, Erick and Carlos who introduced us to the Mescallin!The pools are clean and well-located on both the upper-level with the beautiful sunsets and the lower beachfront, Coco's Club. The Bacocho Beach is stunning, weird shaped rocks, crashing waves, Sandy expanses and diving birds-but too wild for swimming-use the pools!We have taken three tours with Pascon travel which is located in the lobby and have enjoyed all three, ranging from riding horses to hot springs in the mountains( quite demanding), a full day water ventures through Chacahua lagoon, a breathtaking adventure, and an unbelievable night swim in Manialtepic Lagoon swimming in luminescent plankton, staring at a starlit sky and cheerfully avoiding flying fish trying to jump into our speeding lancha ( two succeeded)! Thanks to Marian, Mauro, Gregorio, and Carlos!A special thanks to the lovely Viva Puerto magazine for useful background info about Puerto Escondido.
Had a very pleasant stay at this resort with my wife. Very nice accommodations, very good food and drinks, and staff was extremely nice and always willing to make our stay better. The pools were very nice and the grounds beautiful. I would highly recommended this resort to anyone who wants to get away and enjoy the great ocean views and white sands of this area.
Clean, safe , quiet hotel, Food is average just average, but fresh, We ate breakfast fresh omelette station, lots of fresh fruit and yogurt. Snack on beach. Ate out for dinner every night. Terrible coffee, terrible wine, Servers in Restaurant definitely wait on Mexicans first even if You were there first, We had to get Our own coffee and refills , same as beach bar the bar tender would ignore Us wait on locals first , not very attentive which is silly as Us Gringos tip. First time in Mexico this has happened I am You serve who ever is first no priority. Rooms are clean lots of hot water, no decks only few on front, bar closes at 10;30. DO Not go for night life!! Town or beach bars You will hardly see any one about. It was perfect!! Beach club here is amazing one of the best beaches ever. Be really careful in The Ocean the under tow is strong not good for Children or Adults!! We were there a guy was drug out and broke His leg..
First off, it is a small hotel which means the buffet is not as large and varied as the mega resorts. This was the only area which we were not highly satisfied but as the local restaurants were outstanding it was not an issue. And we understand that with the small number of visitors there is no good reason to have a large buffet. Back to the hotel, the staff was great and accommodating but were not all fluent in English, we know enough Spanish to get by so that is not an issue. While we were there the weekend was semi-busy with what looked to be local Mexican families who were having a great time. I would say if there was more than a half dozen Americans there I would be surprised. Other than the weekend I would estimate the hotel no more than 20% booked.The pool near the rooms was decent size but we spent most of our time at the Coco Beach Bar which again was very nice and very lightly populated during our stay. The rooms were acceptable, small but clean and comfortable. The staff was very attentive and friendly even with the language barrier. In summary, we would have no problem returning to Posada Real. The best part are the sunsets. The hotel sits atop an 80 foot or so cliff above the beach. There is a bar / palapa at the edge of the cliff with a couple of dozen chairs lined up so that everyone can watch the gorgeous sunset with a cold drink in hand before dinner.Note, if you fly into Huatulco the drive is a bit long after being on a 4 hour flight.
