Based on other reviews we expected something better. In the 3 days we were there not once did we get hot water. The sheets on one of the beds were not clean, they were stained. The door had a paper towel to plug a hole that apparently used to have a handle and there was no refrigeration in the room.... More

Went here awhile back with a friend on a road trip around northern Baja, and we enjoyed our stay. In the heart of town and easy to walk everywhere. Service was friendly, mattress not bad. A good value overall.

The staff is very helpful and friendly,our room was very cozy and it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay; coffee, sandals, plenty of towels,etc...All the main tourist points were walking distance and it was so nice to walk thru Cale Primera with all the little shops, cafes and restaurants just by stepping out.

I have stayed at Posada El Rey Sol a number of times and it is always perfect, from the friendly and courteous staff at check in to the nicely designed rooms. It is located in the "nicer" end of the main tourist area, walking distance to great shopping and many good restaurants. Reasonable rates, definitely recommended.

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times and each visit gets worse. We arrived Friday afternoon at 1:30 and were told the room wasn't ready. Check in is at 3 but I figured they'd have a room ready considered it was January and not the high season. We went back at 3 and had to wait until 3:30... More

Dear guest, We thank you for your review, and apologize that your stay was unpleasant. Fortunately for us, although January is indeed the slow season, we haven't been slow at all and the rooms were occupied. Next time I advice you to call ahead and request an earlier room so that we, and any hotel can better accomodate your needs.... More

we have been coming here for several years and just love the charm and location. Another huge plus for us is they are dog friendly, so we are able to bring our very well behaved Maltese and it's always nice to stay here. At times, they seem to raise prices during slow season, which doesn't make sense, but surprisingly they... More
