- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
3 star rating. This is for the budget-mined traveler. It's very basic with a small pool area.
Location: On the beach in San Jose del Cabo. 10 min from airport.
I visited posada real with my friend for a 4 night stay. We actually ended up only staying 2 nights. Pros:Nice staff (minus front desk night lady) Beautiful grounds Cons:Disgusting bathrooms Someone threw up in pool twice and no one attended to it. The price was good but even cheap prices can not make me want to swim in the only pool when there is throw up in it.
We ended up staying in this resort as part of a Book VIP timeshare deal. Probably my fault, but I thought we were going to be in a different resort, but ended up here. After getting over the initial disappointment, the resort ended up not being terrible, but not somewhere I'd stay again. I'm not even sure if I'll ever go back to "Cabo" again.We were there during the beginning of spring break, and there were a few annoying youngsters running around, but nothing too bad.The beds, that's a different story. They were very small doubles, and probably the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept on, and I travel about 150 plus nights a year in many hotels in the US.The staff was not very attentive, until we dropped a 20 spot on them....then we had all of the service we could ask for.
My first trip to San Jose Cabo and what a wonderful time! The people at Posada real helped to make it a great vacation and made me want to come back again! PROS:Everyone was so incredibly friendly..from the wait staff to the bar tenders to the security guards, everyone wanted make sure we were safe and having a wonderful time We had the all inclusive package which I think we so so so worth it. The food was delicious!! There were nights where I had trouble not going back for another plate of food. Very authentic Mexican food. I felt as though this was a much more local hotel- we had many people from Mexico staying here and the resort had a very small local vibe to it- which I enjoyed. There is always food available..be prepared to gain weight! Again, all inclusive drinks were wonderfulThe pool was a wonderful temperate- never overly crowded loads of places to sit. Swim up bar- bartenders very accommodating. Waiters also will bring you and drinks/ food you need. Paradise. You are also steps away from the beachThe room was a great size with TV and A/C--wonderful A/C the cooled us off nice and fast!! Every room has a big balcony we had a beautiful view of the beach/ ocean. People in Lobby super friendly to help you planning excursions. We went on Sunset Boat and party Bus. Would recommend both! Rooms were kept very clean and orderly CONS:Bathroom was a little grimyThey are doing construction/ repairs..sometimes the noise was a little annoying..not a huge deal..but the walls are pretty thin here.Wifi is free but was very slow, almost didn't work at all. Again, wasn't a huge deal because we didn't need it but just FYI.The bartender outside (Ismael) was kind of hit and miss on the drinks. Some would be watery or just mixer...some would be great. I found the inside bartender to be a bit more consistent. They had a wide variety of drinks and were willing to make you anything(willing they had it)The food outside wasn't anything too great, a lot of fried food but worth trying out. No iron in room :( This is definetly a quieter resort. By about 10 pm things quiet down here. They have some "live entertainment" that consists of a band playing in the lobby. They were great but..how long are you gunna watch that? If you want more excitement I might stay in Cabo San Lucas.I absolutely loved this hotel though
Posada Real is a wonderful, cozy hotel which provides excellent, friendly service and won't put you in the poor house.We stayed for a week and got to know a number of different people primarily from Mexico, the U.S. and Canada. meeting people is easy because the resort is rather small so you frequently see the same people.They have activities like beach volleyball and darts in the afternoon and evening entertainment includes karaoke and live music. There was always something to do!We went with the breakfast and drinks option which suited us just fine. Breakfast was fantastic with made to order omelettes and many other options. Those who did the full meal plan seemed to like the lunches and dinners as well.We loved our room which had a great ocean view (although it claimed to only be a 'partial ocean view'). The room was clean and we just loved everything about it.If you want a 5 star hotel then by all means go to one. If you want a great little place that oozes charm, character and friendliness, then you can't go wrong by coming to the Posada Real!
My friend and I are staying here from 6/6-6/8 (still here while writing this). The resort is small & a bit dated. The cleaning staff are friendly & attentive. The grounds (landscaping) are maintained well. We ran into some issues while checking in - the front desk isn't very attentive and don't explain the layout/what the resort offers. We've had breakfast at the restaurant (buffet) two times - the first time we weren't even offered coffee/water (completely ignored). Today we had to flag someone down for coffee - I was about to go into the server area & help myself. In regard to the food - it's good. In regard to the swim up bar at the pool, what follows really bothered me; we asked for water (we had a few drinks & it's hot, water is a must) and were told by the bartender that we had to get out of the pool and help ourselves to water out of a water dispenser. What!! No water at the swim up bar?! We tipped & were friendly to the bartender. Not sure why we were made to get out of the pool for water. Overall it's a nice, quiet resort - hopefully the service improves a bit. That's all for now.
