“Beautiful, but not for bird lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

This posada is a gem in every way, but one. The rooms, restaurant, cactus garden and other common areas are probably the most charming we have seen in our Mexico travels. The artwork and ceramics dotting every corner of the property are magnificent!

Our only complaint are all the caged birds. It was atrocious to see large tropical birds and doves in cages built for canaries, in which they could hardly turn around. For anyone sensitive to animal rights, this would not be the place to stay. We mentioned this to the manager who said others had complained as well. Hopefully this note will help move the owners to take away the birds - artificial birds would look just as nice.

Room Tip: Love Santa Brigida and the patio overlooking the town.

My husband and I took two friends who are visiting Mexico to Pozos for an overnight & we stayed 1 night at the Posada de las Minas; our second time there. First time 2 years ago as a couple. Was just as delightful the second time. The staff is very gracious; particularly the new on-site manager, James, who gave us directions to drive to the mines, encouraged us to check out the Posada's new spa (which looks gorgeous; will try next time), and shared a lot of local lore. The rooms are lovely; each one different & each one pictured on their website. A huge bargain for 1500 pesos; wood-burning fireplaces with staff to set the fire any time you want, coffee to your room in the a.m., a full, delicious a la carte breakfast in the restaurant included. Floors are radiant-heated, but unfortunately James explained he turned them off 2 wks. ago because everyone thought winter was over; it wasn't. But fireplaces made up for that. Makes a great weekend getaway. Will review the restaurant separately.

Room Tip: Luna de Miel has terrace overlooking the church; beautiful. Los Cactus looks out on their beautiful...

We drove out to Pozos, about 1 1/2 hr from SMA to enjoy one of our favorite places, Posada de Las Minas is a very beautiful hotel and a nice dining area. We ate out in the patio. The weather was beautiful and the flowers in the patio give a very pleasant dining area. The food was very good but the service left a lot to be desired. The staff stood around chatting in the bar and we had to ask for our waitress several times. In the end, she try to short change us. I am not sure when we will go back. Perhaps management needs to pay more attention to what goes on in the restaurant

Room Tip: Every room is beautiful

David W, Owner at Posada de las Minas, responded to this review, September 4, 2012
Although it is disappointing, we appreciate receiving comments when we do not provide the type of service that our guests expect. Besides the quality of our food and the environment of our restaurant and hotel, service is equally important to the experience we try to offer to our guests. We meet regularly with our staff to emphasize the need for proper service. This specific problem was discussed with them as soon as we became aware of it.

Normally management is available to address specific issues when they come up if they are made aware of the issues. We do not know the specifics regarding when the guest was at our restaurant, but we would hope that if there is a problem, management would be available to resolve the problem at that time to the satisfaction of our guest. We also have recently instituted a comment card system in the restaurant so guests can provide appropriate input when they think it is necessary.

We hope that Mr. Driscoll will give us another try in the near future.

Posada Mineral de Pozos was a very nice place to stay. The hotel is ideally located in downtown Mineral de Pozos in a very old building which was carefully restored. It had many beautiful patios full of exotic plants and nice mexican crafts and details. Our room had the most magnificent view to the tower of the church. It was very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was included every morning and the food in the hotel is by far the best you can have in Mineral de Pozos.

This place is wonderful!. The house is beautiful, the rooms are well decorated and comfortable. The food at the restaurant is good and Pozos and its surroundings is magical. You should go there before it gets crowded!
