We stayed at Posada in December and January of this year which was part of a scuba package arranged by Dolphin Dive Center in Loreto. Having stayed at La Mision quite a few times we felt we needed a change and decided to try Posada.
Its a very charming hotel,,,it has the looks of an old Mexican Hacienda with authentic looking decor and rooms that reflect the same scene. Our room was a suite on the top floor which overlooked the main square which was nice as we got to see them setting up for Christmas Posado...
Beware there are 4 floors and NO elevator,,you will have to buck your luggage in our case dive gear up those winding stairs and back upon checkout. whewwwwwwww!
The room was very clean and the bed was a king, albeit a bit hard, but still comfortable. There is a mini bar fridge,,which comes in handy to store your own drinks and food in.
The washroom was very clean and did the job,,,the windows in the room were covered partly by curtains the rest over the doors were not and it was awful to try and sleep with this giant LIGHT shining in at night from City Hall. The extra blankets solved this problem, we hung them up and blacked it out completely. have to get ingenious!
The TV was well,,,if you watch TV on vacation typical Mexican and almost all in Spanish which will help you with your own Spanish LOL!
Room decor was great,,,,very authentic,,,room was very spacious too.
The breakfast which was included ( continental) is on the roof,,,from there you have an awesome view of Loreto...the food was so so....try " the Capital" down the alley,,,for breakfast and its open at 7 AM and its cheap and so good. The swimming Pool is on the roof and it looked as if it hadn't been cleaned for a few months,,it was too cold to go swimming anyway but maybe in the Summer they take care of it.
The only drawback about Posada is the NOISE....you get the square noise all night,,,oh there is a new bar opened right beside the hotel on the ground and tables are outside,,,so a lot of noise from drunk or happy customers.
THE BIGGEST NOISE is a place called Dave's nightclub ,,,around the corner,,,man they play LOUD music from about 9 PM till 1 AM or longer....you will not get to sleep unless you have thick ear plugs or 1 bottle of tequila before you go to bed.
Its REALLY loud and even the Hotel management acknowledge its a pain for all the business's in the area. So until something is done about it,,,,you will not get a good nights sleep, EXCEPT for Sunday when its closed.
All in all we enjoyed our stay,,,the staff we got to know were very friendly and helpful,,,,I think as far trying it again....I doubt we will,,,,as scuba divers we need a good nights sleep and here at Posada you won't get that until Dave's is out of business!
Its very central and within walking distance to everything, if you can stand the Nightly noise maybe this hotel is for you!
Good Luck Posada and Thank you Mr. Jose Arreguin!
