Posada Real Puerto Escondido
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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$.
We stayed for 14 days. The resort is a very quiet, relaxing place. The view of the long beach is spectacular! This resort is definitely a 3 star hotel sitting on a 5 star property. They have rocking chairs where everyone would sit and watch the beautiful sunset every evening. The property sits approximately 80 feet above the ocean so we whale watched daily! I loved it!There's a long set of stairs to the beach area. You had the option to take a shuttle. We climbed the stairs every day for exercise. The beach is beautiful with plenty of palapas and shady areas to sit and not burn. We swam in the ocean. There's a small area that is safe to swim in. I loved watching the pelicans sitting on the rocks fishing. Also, there was a baby turtle release just down the beach every day at 5:00 p.m. This was fun to watch. People could buy a turtle and then gather round to release into the ocean. We also watched the fishermen diving for oysters every day too!I loved the beach because it was very safe for walking long distances, super clean and you never had to race down to save a chair! No stress worrying about whether there would be enough lounge chairs. Very few beach vendors, no noisy vacationers, just a perfect place to relax, enjoy the gorgeous views, read books etc.! We met a lot of Canadians that fell in love with this place the same as we did.There were two swimming pools. One up top on the main property and one down by the beach. Both pools were nice and refreshing but they are in need of an update. They added new lounge chairs by the main pool when we were there. They were also measuring the beach pool getting ready to update it too. The pools are well used all year round because many Mexican families come here for their vacations. I enjoyed vacationing with locals. They are very polite and they really watch their children and nobody smokes!There is a beach bar with chair swings, a bar up top on the main property as well as an evening bar in the lobby. These bar's are not fancy but I liked the rustic beach bar and they made very good drinks. The servers came around the beach taking orders too. They also played good music from the Stingray music website.There are two eating areas. The beach restaurant served buffet food at 2:00 p.m. If you were hungry before then you could order a hamburger or a club sandwich and fries. Up on the main property they served dinner. It's a nice open area with a Mexican feel to it. Overall the food was okay, it could have been warmer and the selection was limited. However, I liked the fact that you weren't lining up in a busy dining room to get your food. The view of the ocean and gardens made up for food. The taxis are inexpensive which gives you the option to go out for dinner a few times. Or you could walk 10 minutes to an area that's quite lively for drinks and dinner at quite a few restaurants.The rooms have been renovated and are comfortable and very clean. Currently, they are just finishing some ocean view rooms adding new balconies. At present, most rooms do not have balconies.I will definitely return here next year. If you want good weather, peace and quiet, something different then this is a good place to go. I would recommend it for older adults or young families.
Terrible experience at Club de Playa Cocos and Hotel Posada Real. let's start with my review:Club de Playa Cocos is terrible expensive in case you are not guest of Hotel Posada Real and you have to pay entrance to join a dirty pool, terrible service on food and drinks, bad quality on both and lady at the entrance attitude is bad, make me feel like I was a thief. I have been visiting Puerto Escondido every year for 10 years. we always refused to go there. we prefer to visit other option on club the playa, this year 2017 (January) we decided to give club the playa cocos a chance to bring family and friend there as we have some friends staying at Hotel Posada Real. The environment was a bad experience, you feel like waiters are just vigilant on what are you doing. Is expensive as heal comparing with competition on clubs the playa. food made me sick and drinks are very bad quality. I ever... ever will visit and ever will recommend to anyone I care for. (friends and family)Regarding to Hotel Posada Real. I book a room with all inclusive package from Calgary to Huatulco and transportation to Puerto Escondido Hotel Posada Real.. they gave me the worst room with a broken air condition equipment. was not working. room smell very bad and windows were locked I feel like in jail. unfortunately I could not talk to no one during the first night, cause I do not speak Spanish and in reception they did not speak English.I have to wait the next morning to ask a friend to help me translate and then a guy from reception said they gave me the worse room because everything was full the day I arrived. terrible experience never back to hotel posada real and club the playa cocos.BAD BAD BAD
