Posada Barrancas Mirador
Ranked #1 of 20 Hotels in Copper Canyon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Posada Barrancas is a place to stay one night for seeing and experiencing the canyons atmosphere and knowing a little bit about the Taraumara Indians culture.
Mirador Hotel is the best for this! All the rooms are built with a balcony with an open and complete view to the canyons. You can see them in your window at sunset or early in the morning. It is a very calm and quite place.
As there are no restaurants in the area, the hotel provides a dinner and breakfast menu with some options. It is simple food but good.

Room Tip: All the rooms are with view to the canyons

I found all of the staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The view of the canyon from the room was spectacular. The rather long driveway to the hotel needs grading and really should be paved. The room was clean and comfortable

There is little to add about the great view from the balcony of every room. It is indeed quite spectacular!

I stayed overnight, arriving from the train in the afternoon and leaving on the train the next afternoon. Lodging and meals were included in the Copper Canyon tour. I had a room on the ground floor with a king bed, two chairs and a small table that were meant to be on the balcony, an uneven tile floor, and a small bathroom with tub/shower combination. Absent were a telephone, TV and Wifi. Cell phone reception was very shaky also. So, it offers the view.

Meals were inconsistent and quality. Breakfast was excellent, lunch was average and dinner was awful! Service from all staff was very good.

Amuse yourself by trying to get a photograph of the hummingbirds frequenting the feeders on the deck! Relax and bonder the natural beauty of the area.

Room Tip: There is not a bad room for the view, nor a great room for its facilities

The room itself is nothing spectacular. Getting to the room was a challenge. I'm not sure how many short and long flights of stairs were required to get to and from the entrance and dining room, but it was considerable. The food was simple, but sufficient. The waiters rushed us to leave the dining room without lingering for conversation with our traveling companions. I noticed they enjoy their meals together after the guests leave. Some hiking trails below the hotel leave right from the front door and are easy to follow. But everyone comes for the view and the hotel has that. We were able to sit on our balcony and enjoy the quiet and watch the sunrise in front of us. That experience alone is worth a return trip someday.

This is more like a lodge in the mountains not a hotel, communal dining at long tables, no choice of food except breakfast, the bass lunch wS awful, very old fish I think, told it was chicken for dinner, was beef and mashed potatoes, no choices! Deserts were the best part. Second day was raining, hail, then now, roads closed to Creel, no tour, decided to take train back to El Fuertes, had a terrible time trying to get back the money for the night we would not be there, like almost $300US, finally gave us cash as could not credit the credit card. Very cold, had to change rooms as heater did not work, needed fire in fireplace in common room that we tended, power went out twice, drove us to train and left all of us there for over an hour before train came in freezing weather. Really Need people with hotel experience to run the place and take care of their guests. Will not return.

Room Tip: All have canyon views, take rooms closest to common area or you walk a lot on slopped hallways and s...

The Posada Barrancas Mirador offers a silent view of the stunning Cupper Canyon from a privileged, unique spot. I am probably adding nothing new to other reviewers, but just wanted to drop my compliments and big thank you for a stay difficult to forget. Nice staff and better than expected food as well.
