Posada Real Ixtapa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and I took advantage of a great Sun Wing "final fling" over the Easter break this year. The resort is small by comparison to many of the other hotels on the beach and the staff are excellent as they get to actually "know" you during your stay. They are extremely helpful at the front desk and several speak excellent English, (which was invaluable in solving a sunset cruise pick-up debacle). The room we had on the third floor had a massive over king sized bed and was kept clean throughout our stay with the added touch of towels made into lovely shapes and adorned with flowers. The food was typically Mexican and we loved it! There is also an "a la carte" menu and we had amazing shrimp and steak for about nine american dollars! The drink menu is extensive and the service was usually very good. The swim up bar staff were not quite as quick as the restaurant bar, but the wait was never very long. The only downside to this lovely resort was the fact that we forgot what a huge holiday Easter is in Mexico and about 4 days into the trip we were suddenly inundated with kids in the infinity pool with inflatables and assorted toys to maneuver through on the way to the swim up bar. There is a separate pool and playground area but unfortunately, many families did not spend their family time there. The noise level in the hallways in the mornings became a bit ridiculous as well as children were left to race around unattended shrieking at the top of their lungs. A quick and loud "silence" seemed do the trick and I did this several times to catch a few more hours rest. None of this is the fault of the resort, the employees we spoke were no more impressed with the lack of parental supervision than we were. We will return here for sure, just not during a major local holiday!
We have been traveling to Ixtapa/Zihuatenejo for many years, with multiple stays at Posada. It has been our go-to place as we love the beach and the infinity pool - with a good price. We travel with another couple and their room was as dirty as ours: mold in the bathrooms, bedding that looks like it hasn't been updated/changed in years. The infinity pool outer edges had black mold. The lower pool: no attempt to pick up plates, drinks, uneaten food so birds were flocking and sitting everywhere. Sad to say this was our last stay at the Posada - or in Ixtapa. Many places in Zihuat that are far superior for the same money
We stayed for a week and enjoyed the beach. We walked to restaurants every night, of which there are many. The beach, as always was very nice. The weather was great which is why we chose Ixtapa. Price was great.
stayed at the posada real ixtapa at the beginning of feb.for 14 nights..we were all inclusive including all meals and drinks and found that the majority of guests were booked as semi all inclusive which gave them breakfast and drinks.would have to consider the semi option on our next visit however the nearest area for meals is approx.10 minute walk away ..overall a great little resort and will book again..
We recently returned from a 2 week vacation at Posada Real Ixtapa.....sun, sand and hot weather. What more can you ask for in a vacation? OK, a clean resort, friendly staff, good food and drinks all of which you get at Posada Real Ixtapa. We've been here a couple of times now with family and friends and keep coming back because it's a great little resort. It has four floors and maybe just over 100 rooms, but you might have to get up early to get a table around the pool with an umbrella. With plenty of great restaurants nearby, you don't have to buy into the "All Inclusive" experience. This is one of the few resorts that you can opt to get: drinks only, drinks and breakfast or the all-inclusive. We choose the drinks only option because it provides great value and with all the great restaurants close by, you have a variety of "a la carte" dining experiences. If you want to just stay and eat in at the resort, the buffet and the menu items are good too. The rooms are very clean. My wife is a "germaphobe" and she likes how clean the rooms are, so that says a lot. The maid even provides towel art with flowers found on the resort (might have something to do with the tips we left daily - LOL!). The staff are very friendly and always willing to get you what you need, whether it's food, drinks, extra linens, and did I mention drinks.... they are always polite and courteous. This resort has two pools and one is an infinity pool right on the beach. How great is that! If you're a little more adventurous, take a cab or bus ride into Zihuatanejo. It has the Mexican markets and shops you'd find in a large city including a Sam's Club. There are many options for excursions too. You can do day trips to Las Gatas Beach (a short water taxi from the Zihuatanejo marina). We did this 5 times this trip, because the ocean is too rough at the resort. The beach restaurants offer their loungers and patio tables in exchange for eating and drinking at their place. The beach here is sandy with calmer waters for swimming and snorkeling, but I would strongly recommend water shoes because once you get off the beach and into the water, the bottom has some rock and coral. Alternatively, you can go north from the resort to Playa Linda and check out more local markets or the wild life sanctuary with birds, turtles and alligators. From there it's only a short water taxi to Ixtapa Island for more sandy beaches and calmer waters. We'll be back.Donna & Ed K.
