Was so looking forward to a relaxing vacation and we weren't disappointed! We intentionally chose a smaller resort, as we didn't know what to expect post-covid restrictions. We were lucky to get room 328 on the "hammock" side and the view was spectacular. Although older, the room was very clean and comfortable - everything we needed. The refrigerator wasn't stocked - we made a trip to Comer to get big bottles of water and beer to self-stock. No problem! There were water stations on every floor and throughout the resort to refill water bottles which was great. The grounds were beautiful - there's a few resident iguanas and tons of birds! The pool was really nice, the beach fantastic. Always loungers/umbrellas available. The service at the beach was over the top! Diego was amazing - we never went thirsty or hungry. The food from the beach was superb. The main buffet was just fine - always something good to eat. Ahi tuna on the grill, steaks...yummy. There was entertainment nightly. The bar in the main lobby was a busy place - Bernardo was the best - he worked his butt off to keep everyone happy all with a smile on his face. The location was great - a short walk to Plaza del Pescador - ice cream, restaurants and shopping. About a 35 min walk to the main plaza in San Jose. Art walk night is a must, as is Baja Brewing (try the steak Big Burrow burrito). There's a little plaza across from Baja Brewing with a cigar shop - handmade and pretty darn good! Try the chocolate scented ones. Overall, good value for the money and we would definitely stay at the Posada Real again.…
This was our third visit to the San Jose del Cabo region and our stay at the Posada Real. We had a wonderful ten days at the resort, and taking advantage of all the nearby beaches, walks, shopping, restaurants, art and culture. The staff are superb, and show their enjoyment and commitment to their work and customer service. We can be "high maintenance" for items such as extra face towels and such ... and this was delivered with a smile. As we enjoy experiencing the fabulous eateries in town, we mainly stayed for the great breakfasts and pool side lunches (fish tacos!). We trust and appreciate the Posada "Family" and wish them all the very best as covid transition welcomes more guests in the coming months.
First things first... to all the negative reviewers. If you want a fancy experience, pay for it at a fancy resort. I get so irritated at reading some of the reviews below. This is not a five star resort. This is likely one of the original resorts probably from the 80's and just think of it as retro. Could it use updating...sure but then prices will go up. This hotel is well loved and returned to over and over again by returning patrons. I chatted with many of them at the beach sitting under an umbrella and making friends with other guests. This is a friendly place with friendly staff. I'm not afraid to ask for what I want, with a smile and a good attitude and you can catch a maid and ask for an extra towel or soap etc... I got nothing but smile. Bring lots of dollar bills and tip a little. The staff appreciate it....a lot and they deserve it. Yes, the alcohol is well and the coke is local and a bit flat but after the third one you just wont care.... LOL be realistic when you stay here and friendly and you will have a great time. The pricing here allows you the luxury of eating some meals here an some meal out. I loved the fresh food and the fruit bar and the fresh juices... the omelets were made to order. The staff at the restaurant was also super friendly as was the bartender. Loved them all. Uber was the easiest way to go and if you rent a car... you DO have to buy Mexican insurance in Mexico, don't listen/believe to the internet BS. They absolutely will not let you walk away without it, as they third party cheep insurances don't pay out to the rental car places if you have an issue... so the scam is on the internet. Not to say that you can't bargain that price down... we would Uber into town and walk back at night.. no worries. I'm 51 and my son who I took with me for company is 25. It's a 40 minute stroll back but after dinner and some drinks, it was lovely. Just walk straight down from the main square and you will end up on the beach strip. It's downhill and cooler on the way back. :) Anyways if you can be realistic and ask for your needs with a smile, you will love it here. If you want the works, go to the 5 star hotels... literally, right next door and pay as much as your heart desires and your wallet can handle... me, I'm a Happy Posada Realist.....and can't wait to come back!…
Had a great stay at the Posada Real Los Cabos. Good food, friendly staff and beautiful beach location. Rooms are a little older, but very comfortable. Quiet at night. Not a place for partying, which suits me well. Can't wait to go back.
No Whiskey weak & cheap alcohol. Very hard and long check in. There was 7 people in our group and they try to spread us out all over the resort. The bell boy, wasn't very nice, took all of us to the first floor and drop our bags and pointed to our rooms. Rooms were gross, there was alway smell of sewer. Very under staffed, service was ok but the bartender tried really hard to keep up, long waits for drinks.
The price was right, for sure. Our 3 night stay cost us $264 and included well drinks and beer. The staff is great, as well. The beach and the view are classic San Jose-so quite nice. But…. The physical property is pretty tired. The rooms are quite old and, although very clean, are in bad shape. Chipped tiles in the shower and sink and missing grout in many places. The echoes in the hallway make it seem like other people are in your room with you. I kept checking to see if our door had opened.
Posada real hotel staff is excellent, ( not one shouldn't be mentioned) attentive, caring and friendly. This is a small quiet resort, so perfect if your going to escape the busy life. No crazy nightlife, great for families with all ages of kids. The food is always good. We love the snack bar fish and shrimp tacos. Homemade tortillas, love the ahi ( Tuna night). Drinks are great, My daughter looks forward to the coconut ice cream. The hammocks are nice early evening. Pool was warm this visit which was very nice!! Covid test at hotel ( easy) they arrange it's 20.00. We love Karaoke night. They have other entertainment which is nice and very laid back. Thank you Posada staff for giving us a home away from home "we love it there"
My sibs and I just got back from visiting. It has a nice diversity of visitors and the staff all seem very nice. The buffet and the bar were pretty good. But The worst thing was that the internet was maddening. There were many minor things that needed a coat of paint, a bit of repair, etc. In five nights, the same marimba duo played the same songs on two nights. Don't put a fridge in one room and not in all of them. The bar was free EXCEPT for whiskey...?? Not a big deal, plenty of other choices, just odd. If I were returning, I'd probably stay here again.
My family has been telling me about Posada Real for years, but we usually get an AirBnB instead. This time, circumstances made it so that we stayed here and it was just as great as my family has said. Ocean view room with balcony; WONDERFUL food handmade before your eyes (we did the all-inclusive). No, it's not fancy, and the internet isn't great, but we really liked the place. On the days I actually worked, I went to a local business center, so the internet was not a big deal. Mix of Mexican and US/Canadian guests, which was great as well. Highly recommended! We loved it.
We stayed with our family for five nights. Very friendly staff, clean and well looked after hotel. Nightly entertainment was a surprise we enjoyed. The breakfast was enjoyed every day by all of my family members. The location is great. Easy to walk to grocery stores and shops. The guests were from all over the world. The hotel is on the beach, but you much be very careful swimming in that area. We walked or took an uber to the different places in the city very easily. Rooms could have some upgrades but overall it was just fine.
