- 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.
We stayed at this resort 12 years ago & decided to go back. We had so much fun the last time. We got a great price, direct from Kelowna. We remembered so much(kind of like a second honey-moon). We had a blast. We walked to San Jose ( which we remembered took 20 minutes) . It actually took us 40 minutes. So much updating along the way. We took the bus (across from the Mega store) to Cabo San Lucas & did some shopping & walked along the marina. The service & resort is small Quaint & clean. We loved it & would go back.
I consider myself an avid traveler, and one thing that I never do is return to the same place twice…until this year. Posada Real has a quaintness, and charm that brings you back. The hotel is small. It has one pool, one beach, one restaurant, and one lobby/bar area. This is the best part about staying here. The guests all hang out together, and get to know each other. By the end of the week you will go home with new friends. You may even be lucky enough to form friendships strong enough to bring promises to meet back again, the following year. That is a story you will hear often at this hotel. (us included)The managers Jesus and Ezequiel professionally oversee a great group of staff members who collectively, will do their best to make your stay comfortable, fun and enjoyable. I was shocked to read a recent review that suggested that the front desk staff were rude. Not my experience at all?? From the moment you check in the front desk staff do their best to make your experience timely and accommodating. Their smiles are always there to greet you each time you walk past the front desk area throughout your stay. Eduardo and Ishmael were bar staff that we met last year and after we left, we considered them to be friends (Amigos). It was great to reconnect with them this year and build those friendships! They both always make time for conversation and a lot of laughs. Charlie, Joel, Jeremiah, Francisco, will be your fun hosts at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food feels like home cooked and it is delicious. There is always a great variety and they have mastered their chicken recipes. They will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and keep you smiling and laughing your entire stay. Bonito (Mi Corazon) is the sweetest hardest working man you will meet. He is your beach waiter, and no joke, he must walk a million steps in a day in the hot sand and sun. He doesn’t miss an order, He is always happy, and by the end of both my stays, saying Adios to him brings a tear to my eye. All of the guests talk about him…EVERYBODY loves Bonito. Esteban will be your bartender inside or outside depending on the schedule, no matter where he is working you will get excellent service. He will do his best to offer you good drink advice, and once you find one you like, good luck ever seeing it empty! Make sure you order the Wappa! The inside bar is hopping busy in the evenings and there is only one staff member bartending but somehow depending on the night, Eduardo, Ishmael and Esteban are all able to keep up to the fast pace. They are all great at what they do!Every night there is some form of entertainment, to keep the lobby interesting. I love the mariachi band, the cover band, and the karaoke nights. The xylophone night is NOT a big seller. I think they are a very talented family, however the volume of the instrument is too much for a small space. Other guests complain too, and we all talked about how nice it would be to have them playing in the courtyard somewhere so you can still talk, but hear the music. I would even suggest they play nightly outside in the courtyard for the dinner hour, so that you can hear it while you are eating dinner and it will create ambiance. Suggestions: 1 night a week, have a DJ to play music and take requests. Another night have dance lessons for an hour to get more of the guests involved on the dance floor and then have the band or a DJ come in after the lessons are over.The rooms are simple. The walls are not sound proof, so it can get a little noisy from hallway traffic, so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Some of the rooms have a little wear and tear, but more importantly they are very clean. Kudos to the friendly and great housekeeping staff! Almost every room has a spectacular view, so if what you see inside doesn’t offer what you expected, look out off of your deck and enjoy that view instead. The entire hotel grounds are kept immaculate.The beach area is beautiful. Giant waves crash day and night, and whales will make the occasional appearance.Make sure you catch at least one sunrise, they are stunning!!In summary, Posada Real hotel is a hidden gem. I have done the 5 star before, I know what that offers, but this hotel offers something a 5 star cannot…friends to come back to, or meet up with again the next year! I will be back for my third time for sure!
Stayed here for 10 days from March 5 to 15 in room C138 on the first floor facing the garden with partial ocean view. I was a bit apprehensive about the place after reading and seeing some of the photos of the rooms but we had a fabulous time here and would not hesitate to return. Hotel is smaller - I believe around 160 rooms and is probably one of the oldest if not oldest hotel in the hotel zone. Fantastic location being centre of the hotel beach zone and the beach is lovely. This hotel is accurately advertised as a 3* so you are paying a 3* price. Don't expect champagne on a beer budget.The rooms are OK in terms of decor with whitewash furniture. They did do some renovations after the big hurricane that hit Cabo but you do have older bathrooms that have some pretty interesting tiling and grouting and have layer upon layer of paint on the walls and sometimes on the faucets as well. Having said that a big shout out to the lovely smiling housekeeping staff who kept our room immaculate. All the previous reviews about what you get are totally accurate so if you don't want a smaller hotel which primarily caters to families and those folks over 50 then don't stay here. The entertainment is geared to this demographic so if you are looking for lots of young people and banging house music all night every night don't book this hotel. It is smaller so has only one restaurant and as all buffets primarily are - you will see chicken, pork and beef items on the menu every night just prepared differently. They do cuisine nights like fisherman's night, italian, mexican and oriental night. Breakfasts are great but if you like cereal be prepared to have just one choice for your breakfast. The service staff were great. They can get busy with lots of tables at peak times so sometimes you won't get your drinks immediately after ordering but alot of times we didn't even have to order a drink - the servers just brought refills over without being asked. We really liked the staff as they were all pleasant and were for the most part always smiling. I can't relate to the reviews where people had a bad experience but our family always treats service staff politely and with respect. Note that bar service ends by 11 p.m. every night. Also ask for the wifi code when you check in as it wasn't initially given to us. Wifi can be spotty but we figured out that it's basically based on useage and sometimes you get locked out from it for a temporary amount of time.
My husband and I found cheap flights to Cabo San Lucas, and decided to search and see if we could find any all inclusive places that were cheap and nice to stay at. We searched on apple.com and came across Posada Real. We didn't have high expectations, knowing it was a three star resort, but we were looking for a budget trip with a beach. We were so pleasantly surprised by Posada Real. It is a dated resort, but everything was clean and well maintained. The staff was extremely helpful. It is on the ocean, and it is has a wonderful beach. You can not swim in the water, but you can still walk in the water and enjoy the massive waves. Also there is a beautiful pool with a swim bar, and we never had a hard time getting a lounge chair.We paid for a garden view room, and we had a 3rd floor room facing the garden and could see the ocean from our balcony. It was beautiful. The room was very clean. We had two full beds, and it would have been nice to have a king, but for us we were just happy to have a beautiful view. We aren't ones to spend a lot of time in the room, so we really didn't mind. The food was good. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were a buffet. There were many choices, and all though some of it weren't my favorite, there are enough choices you can find something you like. We also order from the pool side menu daily. They had many great choices.The drinks were great! In past experiences, and what I have heard, people say at all inclusives the drinks are weak. That was not the case here! Over the course of 5 days, I tried many different drinks and loved them all. Again, this is a great budget trip. We were able to relax and enjoy a beautiful location without breaking the bank. I would highly recommend Posadas Real, and I could definitely see us coming back.
This was our 4th trip to the Posada.We were on the 3rd floor facing the ocean.Great room.The service was awesome as it always is.The staff is friendly and helpful.It is always good to see old friends working at the Posada. Benito was just great a the beach.Our drinks were never empty and he brought lunch each day.The food was very good with lots of variety.as always we met some great people.With it being a smaller resort you get to see and spend time with your new friends. We had an awesome time as we have have all 4 times.We will be coming back very soon.
