La Posada means... The Inn
Guess what, my dear seasoned intl travs, this is, in fact, actually an inn. Not a resort. Run by... you'll never guess... an innkeeper and his wife (or an innkeeper & her husband, depending on your point of view) who are both nice but maybe kinda nosy for those of midwestern (USA) sensibilities. Not by a faceless international conglomerate.
So maybe armed with this background info, you, the reader, will be able to interpret some of the reviews posted here.
I've stayed here a few times, because my profession occasionally requires me to catch ships sailing out of Port of Manz, and it's always been nice. Usually, the plumbing is just fine. The staff always seemed friendly enough to me, and the innkeeper is professional but can't accomodate every request. Pool is nice, the beach isn't really raked or sifted regularly like at the fancy resorts, but it's OK, and the hotel is about midway between downtown and the resorts out on Las Hadas.
La Posada is small and quiet and relaxing. It is a small hotel. There are plenty of mega-resorts nearby if that's what floats your boat.
