Posada Real Puerto Escondido
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
Very nice small quant place The staff was accommodating but had language barrier. We were very pleased to be offered a room with a king bed and ocean view instead of beds put together and 4 walls to look at. Every evening had the sun set if we were in the room. The ocean is rough there but has 3 other places u can go to if wanting to go in the ocean. The shore is long. Did not walk all of it when there. The buffet meals not the best and not much variety but it's a small place. Breakfasts were great thanks Salvador for great omelettes.To the cleaning staff 5star as they keep everything nice and clean threw the resort. There were 2 places we went out to eat the Mediterraneana pizza and split coconut which were both very good. Pretty much the only thing that bothered us was no drinks after 10:30 and all quiet after 11:00 so we would order more drinks before bar closed and just sit in a quite lobby. Enjoyed the peacefulness and sanctuary of the place. The coco beach bar and restaurant some 100 steps down from main 1 but can get a lift only missed the 6 o'clock shuttle back up and had to walk up almost didn't make it wow! Puerto Escondido is also a 2 hr drive from hautalco airport didn't mind the scenic drive.
As everyone has said, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The Coco Beach Club is a great place to spend the day and totally relax. Its not fancy, but its clean, quiet, and very restful. Eduardo in the main dining room at night was terrific as were most of the wait staff.There are just a few negative things I wish to acknowledge. The first one is the stairs and no ramps. My husband has to walk with a cane and had a hard time navigating the stairs (especially the ones with no hand rail). The second was the television. With half of the guests from either Canada or the US they only had 1 English channel (Fox news) and once in a while an English movie with Spanish subtitles. They could use 2 or 3 more. This was our first time to Puerto Escondido. We chose the Posada Real as we have stayed at the Posada Real in Los Cabos and knew what to expect. The food was OK as were the drinks. We asked for a renovated room (thank you TripAdvisor) and were not disappointed. The taxis are cheap (35 pesos) to just about anywhere in town and the beaches are beautiful.We're not sure if we will return to the Posada because of the stair situation, but will definitely return to Puerto Escondido.
The hotel and grounds are as lovely and well maintained as the photos show. The location overlooking the massive beach is amazing and the sunsets are breathtaking. The hotel is all inclusive but it is relatively small and a 2 hour drive away from the huge resort area of Huatulco. Do not expect massive American style buffets, an activities team and constant entertainment. I loved the food and really enjoyed the wonderful selections and Mexican flavors.The restaurants were all open air and clean.My room on the third floor was beautifully renovated, clean, comfortable, quiet and a great sleep with the window open to listen to the ocean waves all night. The air conditioning worked well but I preferred hearing the ocean instead.The beach club area (at the bottom of over 100 stairs - the "hotel gym workout" or cheat and take the shuttle) was lovely, with plenty of chairs under palm trees, palapas or out in the sun. It was never crowded. It also featured a huge swimming pool, fun bar area and restaurant. The huge white sand beach was amazing and so empty most of the time. A 10 minute walk away is where they release hatched sea turtles at sunset. Many people warn that the beach is not safe for swimming. It may be when winds or storms threaten but during my stay I always saw others in swimming so I did as well, I am a good swimmer and know how to watch for the bigger waves and time getting in and out so I don't get knocked down. There was a life guard on patrol most of the time.The hotel has very little entertainment with live music for only 2 nights a week. That is my main complaint. The live music was great, it was a shame they didn't have more. It is just a short walk or cab ride to go out to other restaurants and entertainment. The staff were all hard working and very friendly. Tipping isn't expected but the service was great and knowing that their wages are low I often tipped. Bring pesos for this not US$.
