Posada Real Puerto Escondido
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This is a great property. It is small and homey and the staff is excellent. I would suggest getting a room with a balcony it is an upgrade but the view is fantastic. Yes the view, at sun down from the lawn is wonderful, get yourself a drink and enjoy it. The beach club is good the pool is clean, it was never crowded, no towel game or chair game the beach is long and sparsely populated. The ocean is rough but not dangerous. There are lots of beaches around to go to but this is the most quite, the others are good but many more tourists. The breakfast is good, egg station and rolls toast, beans, tortillas and sauce fresh fruit and fresh juice. The lunch at the beach is good, hamburgers, tacos and the like. I would suggest if you want a hamburger or club sandwich to order it before the small buffet comes out as it gets busy and can be slow at times. It is often a good idea to order it with one of the waitresses. Flo was great! The dinner is a alright, a limited selection but the food was always good. That being said, location location location with in a 10 minute walk from the hotel are several, 3 that we ate at, excellent restaurants. El cafesito a great place for breakfast lunch or dinner, fresh baked goods, excellent Mexican food. Smoothies. Turtle bay for dinner was wonderful I would suggest the tuna. Everything here is fresh caught and brims with flavour. One of best restaurant meals I have ever had. There are also two wood fires pizza places. La Speriza was the one we ate at and it was fantastic, your friendly neighborhood trip advisor recommended it Lower than the one just down the road so I don’t see how you could go wrong. When pairing the breakfast and lunch with these restaurants you cannot go wrong. So much better than any al a cart. This is not your regular all inclusive. No 24 hour bars, no constant music, no loud tourists complaining about god knows what. The drinks are good, a great bar tender Dietter in the lobby at night. You will need to make your own adventure. 10 mintes away by the afore mentioned restaurants is a great surf shop to take lessons with. Very reasonable, with three departure a day and English speaking instruction. We did go on the illuminesent plankton tour and were disappointed, but makes for a great story. A twenty minute walk in the morning takes you to the market. This was a fantastic experience. All manner of food for sale, from fresh fish and beef to dried beans and vegetables. I would highly recommend this hotel as a destination for your vacation. A very authentic experience.
Everyone was terrific, all the staff was amazing, polite and friendly. All needs or requests were attended to and felt extremely welcome by all. The community & area is beautiful and the people are very friendly. Room was reno'd and very nice, clean and fresh. Only issue was a slight sewer smell from bathroom and there was a smoking room which had an odor and the smoke smell from next room was strong, We attempted to rectify this with a towel between adjoining door. Spoke to the front desk about this but there was not much they could do,did not really want to move, lesson learned, request no smoking! The food was good and wait staff was great, Eduardo was great and was treated very well. After a few days it was a bit plain but always good. Overall would stay at this facility again,
We just got back from a very enjoyable 2 week stay at the Posada Real. What started out as a major disappointment, quickly changed and we will likely return. We arrived at the PR about 6:30pm. We hadn't eaten all day and were looking forward to getting some dinner. Well, there was no one in the restaurant and the bar was closed. We went up to our room and it was like a dorm - small, no balcony, no refrigerator, no safe, lots of TV channels (in Spanish), pillows like sandbags and noisy neighbours. Oh dear and we're here for two weeks. We later found the restaurant opened for dinner at 7pm. There were only a dozen people there and the food selection was very limited. There was no music, entertainment or anything to do. We could hear the beach but we couldn't' see it. We ate and went to bed. The next morning everything changed. We got up to brilliant sunshine and 29 degrees! We learned that breakfast was on at 7am. There were a few more people in the restaurant and the food was awesome. We then walked down the 112 steps to the most amazing beach I have ever seen. The pool area was beautiful and sparsely populated. We had the pool to ourselves and could sit anywhere. There was a restaurant by the pool that opened at 2pm for lunch - another delicious meal. The beach goes forever and is clean and easy to walk on. The waves were big, but there were plenty of spots safe for swimming. We were in and out of the ocean the rest of the day. The beach club closed at 6pm and we were all shuttled up the hill to the main hotel. The bar was open when we got there and we were served the best Margaritas ever - no sweet, sugary, watered down drinks at this hotel!! We spent the next few days swimming, eating and enjoying the sun. There are some excursions offered, but nothing that appealed to us. We opted for a taxi into the Mercado market! - not a tourist dive, but a real Mexican market the locals used. Local foods, crafts, and vendors made for an interesting few hours. The next day, we went to another market area, the Alquin strip - lots of shops for souvenirs, crafts and food. The street was closed off about 6pm and all the stalls were set up along both sides of the road. The Bahia Principal beach is located behind the shops. There you will find open air restaurants and many people who will take you out for a 1 hour boat ride to see turtles, dolphins and the local beaches. It was only 500 pesos and well worth it for a lovely hour out on the water. One of my favourite things about visiting Mexico is their coffee and chocolate. I went on the search for a coffee vendor and there aren't many. However after a few inquiries I found Bi Nisa, the most unique coffee shop I have ever been to. It is located on 7st north off of Oaxaca Avenue. Roberto and Ricardo get their organic beans from Pluma Hildego high in the Sierra Madre mountains. It is the best coffee you could ever imagine. The also have cocoa beans, cocoa, jams, peanut butter - all which were offered up for sampling. Ricardo made us coffee while Roberto told us the history of the coffee plantations in the area. We had a very enjoyable two hours in their shop and left with several kilos of coffee to take home. I highly recommend finding Bi Nisa. It is truly a local gem. Posada Real is like no other all inclusive resort we've stayed at. Although limited in services, it makes up for it in great food, drinks and hospitality. The staff are amazing. They will do everything they can to make sure you are happy. They can boast the best beach in the area. Everything is clean and the grounds are meticulously maintained. They are also famous for their nightly sunsets. We hope to return someday soon. There was lots of construction going on when we were there, but it was fun to watch and I know they are making improvements to their rooms.If you are looking for a more traditional Mexican experience, beautiful beaches, nice people, and a beautiful setting, Posada Real is perfect. Some suggestions I might put to the management:1. Add some colour to all the white walls - turquoise, pink, orange, and lime would liven up the atmosphere.2. Play some nice Mexican music in the restaurant and around the pools. It would also liven up the atmosphere.3. Put some Bi Nisa products on the empty shelves in the gift shop. Tourists would love those products to take home. 4. Get some new pillows - softer ones.
Excellent value in a small resort. Beach Club is beautiful with lots of Palapas and beach chairs - no worries about rushing to save a spot and lots of towels (with no hassle or threats!). We were all inclusive so it was well worth the small extra to get a room with balcony, beautiful view of ocean and sunsets. All the rooms are recently modernized with truly excellent (quiet) air conditioning. We swam laps every morning in the Hotel pool and walked both ways to the Beach club - really only 5 minutes. Food was great quality with reasonable selection for a small resort, we were there 11 days so went out for dinner twice, cabs are easy to get and there is a good selection of restaurants very close by. The Resort is very well maintained with lots of happy and efficient staff.
Arriving at Huatulco airport is followed by a two hour van ride down a winding road as we came to this resort as a package with sunwing. The driver gave information on the area and drove carefully which I appreciated.Check in was a bit confused , a group of travel agents had arrived as a fam trip. Front desk was friendly with passable EnglishAlthough we thought the resort would be rustic Mexican we were surprised to find the room was a modern design after having been renovated, this may be more appealing to some people. There was two double beds in most rooms and they were quite comfortable. The air conditioner was the new design sitting high on the wall. It ran quietly and worked well. The shower was the modern glass enclosed design with plenty if hot water. Our room had an ocean view but no balcony.If you like a balcony and ocean front the upgrade us 500 pesos a day.From the manicured gardens there was a wonderful view of the beach below and many rocking chairs to sit relaxing.The no see ums and mosquitos were out in full force and although I sprayed I got many bites, my husband no bites. The restaurant is outdoors with a view of the ocean and pool. Very uncomfortable chairs in the restaurant and it is a very limited buffet.Take your morning coffee over to the rocking chairs and enjoy a better seat.The hotel is three levels and has stairs up and down everywhere, not good if you have any mobility problems.We enjoyed the lobby to sit around by the bar, which often was not open, but you could pick up drinks at the pool bar. Bars were open only 11:00 AM until 10:30 PM. Sometimes opening a little late and closing a bit early. Only problem with this was there was no where to get ice or a beverage outside those hours.The food selection was definately lacking so this is not the place to come if food and beverage is one of your main things of importance.Coco's beach club is fantastic, either a walk down 112 stairs or the shuttle will take you. The beach and surf crashing on the rocks is wonderful to watch. The pool is a large freeform with tables, umbrellas and many lounges, no need for the towell game.On the sand there are palapas with lounges and lovely wooden chairs. They will bring your drinks and snack bar food here while you vegetate watching the waves.A small buffet is served at 2:00 PM. Fabiola took great care of us at the beach club.A number of locals dive for fresh oysters off the rocks and will sell you a plate for 150 pesos.Along the beach there is a turtle sanctuary where you can release a baby turtle at sunset for a donation of 100 pesos.If you want a quiet resort with friendly people this is the place.If you want dining , entertainment and action then you will not like it here.Be prepared to use your Spanish and remember you are in Mexico
