Our Opinion

3 star rating. This is for the budget-mined traveler. It's very basic with a small pool area.

A modern low-rise hotel in perfect harmony with its stunning surroundings. Mexican architecture combined with the striking combination of ocean, beach and desert make the ambiance at this lovely resort exotic, intimate, unique and truly Mexican.

Location: On the beach in San Jose del Cabo. 10 min from airport.

Experience Old Mexico on a Budget

My husband and I booked into this resort last minute because we needed to get away. If you are looking for a posh resort with every amenity, do not go to this hotel. You will be very disappointed. However, if you are looking for a budget experience that really delivers, then choose this place. This is my 13th trip to Mexico and my 2nd to Cabo area. I have stayed in every kind of hotel and resort there is on offer. What I liked about this place was that it has an authentic Mexican feel. Maybe it was the fact that it was full of Mexican tourists, with their extended families, but I was reminded of trips that I have taken to Mexico 25 years ago before tourism really took off. The staff are so friendly and hard working. The restaurant and beach servers work so hard to meet your needs. The property is old. The management makes efforts to maintain it, but it has that worn feeling to it. Everything is clean however, which, for me is more important than style. If you are used to large resorts with huge buffets and a la carte restaurants, you will be disappointed. There is one buffet and one snack bar. If you, however, enjoy fresh, local, tasty food, that has been carefully prepared by the Mexican chef, then you will love it. I felt like I was eating in a local family's home. Do not miss out on the fresh tortilla station in the morning. They cook fresh tortilla's from dough on a hot griddle and you choose your fillings. After dinner be sure to help yourself to the tequila that is on the table in the middle of the dining room. It is really good. In the evenings the resort brings in local entertainers. They were wonderful groups that performed. They really got the party started when they played the Mexican tourists' favourite songs. Everyone started dancing and encouraged us gringos to join in. It was so much fun! The resort is small enough that you get to know the other guests. Everything in our room was in good working order. We went down to the beach every night. It feels very safe here. Many people were out on the beach at night enjoying the sounds of the waves. So if you are looking for a great experience on a budget and just want to enjoy Mexico the way it used to be, choose this resort.

  • Amy Z :

I was looking for reasonable priced vacation to take my family and picked this property. I normally am not one to leave reviews but thought it was my duty to prevent another family from making the mistake I did. I booked this location based on the reviews I read on Trip advisor which rated this place 4 stars out of 5. I read both positive and negative reviews.So we arrived here on August 10, 2017 and were suppose to spend 5 nights. We stayed 1 and moved to a different resort. Check is was fine and the property at a first glance seemed very old and run down. I knew it wasn't going to compare to a big fancy new resorts but at first glance it was run down. The bellhop took us to our room - no elevator. So the poor man attempted to carry as many suitcases as he could but my son and husband ended up helping him. No big deal. The man was kind showed us our room and how to work things such as air conditioning etc...Our room was small with 2 queens beds and a balcony. The reminded me of a room one may rent by the hour. It too was rundown very dated. The bed was shot there was no support to it barley at all. The one night my husband and I slept it we both rolled to the middle. The sheets and blankets were clean however.The bathroom was roomy considering the size of the room. It had a bath tub and shower . The walls of the shower had mold and a deep cleaning was needed. There were small ants crawling all over the sink and our toiletries we unpacked onto the sink. After unpacking we went to the pool and the beach. We stopped at the pool bar to get a drink. The bar area was disgusting. You could even rest your arms on top of the bar it was so sticky. There were flies buzzing everywhere. The bartender was not very friendly at all nor was he very fast. We had to wait quite awhile for our drinks. We never entered the pool or the hot tub. The pool was small .We enjoyed the beached and swam in the Ocean. We ate dinner there that night. The selection want much but it was enough. We are picky eaters so our review of the food would not be a fair one.That evening there was a DJ and Karaoke my son and husband both sang and everyone was nice and was having a nice time. All in all I feel this place isn't worth the money and was a waste of my time.

Good location for the Budget Friendly Traveler - you give up some benefits

Our family of four recently stayed at Posada Real in Cabo. It is truly a budget friendly hotel for people that are willing to give up amenities, comfort, food quality and overall appearance to save some money. We honestly had a great vacation and a great time at the resort. You will too, if you know what you're getting into and don't have high expectations. If you want somewhere in Cabo that has a great location, easy transportation options, where you can lay your head at night and have some great day trips in the area - this is your place. If you're looking for a zen like spa resort - this is not the place for you. Let's start with the positives - it's a small resort, it's not a huge mega resort which can be nice. The location is excellent, if you want to stay in San Jose Del Cabo. The beach is excellent (although like most of the beaches in Los Cabos it's not swimmable). Location - you're a 5 minute bus ride to San Jose and it cost 12 pesos for adult and 6 pesos for children, which is really inexpensive! You're walking distance to one of the swim with the Dolphins attraction, a nice park, a small mall that houses a McDonald's, Starbucks and a mega store called La Comer. Across the street from the McDonald's you can catch the dessert line bus that takes you to Cabo San Lucas for 37 pesos per person. It took us about 40 minutes to get to San Lucas by bus during the slow time and about an hour when it was busy i.e. people going to or getting off work at the resorts. You can take a cab to Los Cabos for about $40USD and that takes about 25 minutes. The location was really convenient. There are a lot of things outside the resort because there are a lot of bigger resorts on either side. You can also walk to San Jose Del Cabo, took us about 40 minutes to walk about 2 miles. There are a lot of little shops and restaurants that you can peek into while you walk to the small downtown area that has an awesome Spanish Mission Church. You're a short bus ride or cab ride to: Chileno Bay, Sta. Maria, or La Playita beaches. All excellent beaches for an awesome beach day at a beach you can swim. You're a long cab ride to Medano beach if you want to hang out at Mango Deck or The Office. Price and location are why you want to stay here. That's it. If you want a party scene night life, don't stay in a small resort or in San Jose, stay in San Lucas. As others have written about in their reviews, the beds were horrendously hard. If you need a soft bed to sleep in - this is not a hotel for you. The food was not good. It also wasn't awful. There were always one or two things you could pick out at each meal to get by, however, you're not going to be impressed with their buffet dinner. The food at the snack bar is better, still not great. The pool is small and service at the bar and snack bar is slow. The staff are friendly, however they don't go out of their way to impress you. Overall the condition of the resort felt old and neglected. Not completely falling apart, yet approaching that level. If you choose this resort knowing what you're getting into, you'll have a great time. Hope this helps!

A Mexican all inclusive Hotel at a very good price

American style Hotels in San Jose Del Cabo are expensive! Cabo hotels are expensive. Posada Real All Inclusive option is a DEAL!! It is NOT a 4 Star hotel. It is a great Mexican + Mexican themed hotel. Hyatt Ziva is one hotel removed for 3 times the cost. It is a Cost/Benefit decision. If you have kids that mainly want to be in the pool all day, get pouty due to hunger, they can be fed OFTEN and immediately. You'll probably get an internet price that is worth the food cost alone even if you go out and eat a couple of times. The daytime pool side eatery has plenty of kid choices. The breakfast dinner buffets are some of the best buffets I've had BUT they are mainly Mexican cuisine, BUT, I had thin flank steaks, porkchop, tuna steak, cooked up on given theme nights (I think u can get a steak any night). Morning omelets and quesadilla bar = Awesome. Lots of fruit offerings. Alcohol choices are limited, 1 beer on draft Modelo light and dark, many mixed drinks BUT not too many "premium" brands, BUT, we found they had APPLETONS rum and took advantage of it AGAIN COST/BENEFIT ratio! Rooms are dated, but OK, we had a beachfront too that would have cost $500 a night in Hawaii....dated but SO what, the price could not be best. Nice thing is if it doesn't meet all your expectations YOU just say to yourself YEAH but I got a great deal. Staff was great to us and everyone else even those with alternate lifestyles. The Mexican families kids played with my kids and other American kids they just used sign language when they could not understand each other. I'm an older surfer and the surf out front can be too rough for swimming BUT we rolled around in the shallows and had a great time doing so, we also took advantage of the Hyatt Ziva ocean life guard one hotel removed and frolicked where other swimmers were at. ZIPPERS surfing beach is about a twenty minute walk on the beach, you can rent surfboards and boogeyboars there for decent variable prices, right next to ZIPPERS restaurant. All Inclusive made the trip a deal, be sure to keep ordering from your day time waiter their all inclusive tip is based on that, I think it comes out to less than 10% so most of us added a little something at the end of the day to get their tips reasonable. Little tips go a long way to maids, omelette makers, servers BUT it's not required and you'll be treated good BUT it does put a BIGsmile on their faces and they are super appreciative. I always bring at least $50 one dollar bills to Mexico they come in handy. It's a very good deal to stay here BUT if you want 5 Star treatment stay at a 5 Star hotel.

Modest hotel with good accomodations and service. The day started with a good breakfast omellete, and usually got better from there. The beach have very high waves, which was scary at the beginning, but later on, we overcame our fear.
