Rooms are dated, some got bottled water, some not. No fridges! Bathroom small with no privacy as louver doors. Good towel art! Food: caters to Mexicans that stay there, which is the majority of guests. Apparently they like wieners, in sauce, on pizza etc. Very limited buffet and they reuse food from previous day to make something else. ex: left... More

I was a single female looking to relax, and this was my little paradise. I will never forget it. Friendly staff, beautiful location, great breakfast... What more could a girl ask for. I felt completely safe, I had never travelled alone, and this was perfect. Loved my room, loved the food, absolutely loved the experience and I don't think anything... More

First of all,this little hotel is not a 4 star nor a 5 star...It is a strong 2 1/2 star, but the staff and the the people that stay there make it feel like a 3 1/2 star.Having read the reviews,we pretty much knew what to expect when we arrived.Everything was as stated...Needs upgrades,maintenance,hard beds,etc etc.no surprises. What is surprising... More

The reason to stay in the hotel district of Ixtapa is to be on the marvelous beach. The Posada Real is toward the south end at the widest part of the beach, next to the dolphin show, which you can catch a look at from the third floor exterior stairs. The infinite pool with swim up bar (free beverage package... More

We were welcomed back to the Posada Real by the friendly staff for our 10 day stay. The staff are for the most part all very friendly and make you feel like your at home. This is a very small resort so if your traveling as a couple and are friendly you will meet others very quickly. The pool is... More

My children and grandchildren, husband and I stayed at Posada Real over Christmas and New Years. It was truly wonderful and magical..... the property is dated, (but clean and convenient); however, the service, location, and energy brought by staff were awesome. We first arrived and had rooms downstairs. Our first night was a nightmare. We thought oh no!!!! The air... More

Posada Real is not an elegant hotel, but the front desk staff, restaurant, pool area, and lobby make it a great place to stay! A full breakfast is included, the pool is perfect, the beach is a one minute walk out your door to the water. Security keeps out those who are not registered guests, which is nice. I would... More

Posada Real Ixtapa has seen better days. The rooms are a bit worn down and dated. But, for the price and the location, this was a great hotel for my boyfriend and me. We only spent late evenings in the room - you're in paradise, don't forget, you should be outside! It is a small hotel compared to most others... More

On arrival at about 9pm, we got our room which smelled like horse pee the moment u entered. Because this was my first time and first day in Mexico I really wanted to be more positive so I didn't complain about the smell. Everyday it stunk and I believe it came from prior guests peeing in the shower and it... More
