“Our favorite place in Los Cabos.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

This was our fourth time staying at Posada Real. It always feels like home to us. Much of the staff is still there and we are made to feel like family. Yes, it is a budget hotel, but how much time do you really spend in the room? The rooms, by the way are large and clean. We had the fancy animal shaped towels on our bed when we would come back from our days adventure. The food was fine and there was always plenty of it. In the evening there was always some kind of entertainment. We checked out other hotels in the area and did not care for them. Some were just to big and noisy to enjoy. We love taking the local buses to attractions. One night we went into Cabo for a sunset cruise. We had a wonderful time. The CaboRey is a great sunset boat to go on. The bar staff at Posada is wonderful. Estaben, Ismael were fantastico. We can't wait to go back. BTW if you find the beds to hard they will bring a mattress topper for you. And all of the bed have been changed from the mattress on a concrete slab to a traditional bed.

Posada Real is a small hotel that sits far down in the TripAdvisor ratings for San Jose del Cabo.
We arrived here for a week, after previous plans were scuttled. It was relatively inexpensive and the reviews on TA looked ok.
We started by purchasing the most inexpensive package from home (garden view room) and then upgraded to a Ocean View Suite. It was two adjoining rooms, one made into a living room and the other, the bedroom. So we had two washrooms, two balconies etc. It is an older resort and yes it could probably use a massive renovation, but it is clean and comfortable. It is a place that Mexican's go to and despite the language barrier, I enjoyed having a drink with people other than just North American's. The food is superb, but I will warn you that if you do not like Mexican food or tire of it quickly, go somewhere else.
My Wife and I loved the hotel, we met some great new friends and would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Heed the warnings regarding the Ocean. The current is extremely dangerous at the Resort!

We recently stayed at the Posada Real as a last minute change of trip plans while visiting Baja Sur. A tropical storm was predicted so we wanted to stay somewhat close to the airport without staying in Cabo San Lucas. The manager of the Hotel was very accommodating to our last minute arrival and Hotels.com price (but this was low season and perhaps we could have even made a better deal). The place was pretty quiet overall, but, again, it was low season. The staff were all very nice and gracious. The hotel itself is pretty and the grounds are lovely with cactuses and beautiful succulent plants. The rooms could use some help...nothing special at all about them. Bathroom was kind of dingy, AC worked, but blew right over the bed...it was an OK place to stay. We had included drinks/breakfasts with our room price. The breakfast each day was a buffet where you could order omelets and fresh homemade quesadillas were available. It was a little better than average for breakfast. The drinks were plentiful and the staff was more than accommodating in making sure you always had whatever you wanted. The location of the place was close enough to Centro San Jose del Cabo, and far enough away from Cabo San Lucas. The pool was ok and it is right on the ocean; however, the water is ill advised for swimming due to current and rip tides.

My boyfriend and I stayed at posada real for our 3yr aniverssary on the 4th of July week. I must say this place is great. The staff is amazing they go above and beyond to make your stay extra special. We got the all inclusive plan, that worked out great for us. The food was good and there was a good selection. They always have fresh fruit juice and coffee.. My favorite part is the pool area. The have lots of beach chairs you can either sit at the pool or at the beach. Its not a swimable beach but the view is beautiful. They also have a swim up bar so u can sit and have drinks while you dip in the pool. Benito was our waiter at the pool for the most part, and I must say this man is amazing!!! He took care of the whole beach and pool are all by himself! Make sure you tip him everytime he works hard under that hot sun and he deserves it. Always service with a smile and very sweet. He even gave us a personal good bye on our last day. All the other bartenders and people at the lobby are also great and at your service. I do recomend this resort for couples or older people. There is not much for kids to do besides swim. Also the place completly stops at about 10-11pm so if you are looking to party and open bars this is not the place. Make sure you pay for a fridge and stock up on your drinks because everything will be closed at night time. This place is also about a 35minute car drive to all the clubs. I would for sure go back to this place. Staff and facility are wonderful. I had a great vacation with my bf.

Food and service are excellent,my wife and I went fishing on an excursion and caught 6 mahi mahi the kitchen staff prepared all the fish,we both had some and the rest we shared with the resort staff.The resort is older but it is well kept with the rooms being super clean,all meals of the day are excellent and the staff is always helpful,the resort is laid back and quiet so after a long day out its nice to come back and just relax and not have to listen to party animals,the Terramar staff in the front lobby to a great job booking day excursions and are very knowledgeable and helpful.All around just a great vacation.

This hotel has one major flaw: the food is terrible. I got all inclusive (breakfast and drink only) and I am glad I did not go for the whole package. Water down drinks, and the food is just tasteless and with very few choices. We finally skipped the breakfast too, and preferred to cross the street and had lunch in a restaurant.

The hotel has a nice view and all rooms have an ocean view. And at night one can sleep all night without noise which is a big plus for me. The beach area has plenty of palapas and chairs, any time during the day and the pool is not crowded. Nighlife is nonexistent.

The area is very safe and there is a commercial mall about 2 blocks away open until about midnight. There are also stores like 7 eleven, called OXXO that open until 2 am.

Beautiful beach "El medano" in Cabos San lucas, which is about 20 minutes away by bus.
"El CHileno Beach" is also nice, but don't go there on weekends (too crowded). Finally the beaches I loved "La Playita" and 'Palmilla" just about 3 miles from this hotel.

Cabos San Lucas is one the most expensives places in Mexico. Taxis and car rentals are not affordable for a lot of people. Just one day rental at the hotel cost 72 USD plus gas! And such a small car that a tall guy like me couldn't get in!
Thanks God they have a great bus system which we used daily.

In general Posada Real is located in a nice area, with a beautiful beach and between Barceló hotel and El Faro, two mega resorts. Their all inclusive is not a good idea. And if reservations are made online, call the hotel to double check your reservations were made.

Room Tip: all rooms have an ocean view.

My wife and I stayed at Posada on a quick getaway from Austin for 3 nights! We were blown away by the hotel and its staff. Rooms and view was very nice and clean. Staff was so accomodating with our every need! The Manager was awesome when we did have a couple of minor issues to address. Location was perfect and walking distance to a large grocery store and the bus stop for transportion.

We will most definitely be going back to the Posada real. Thank you staff!!!
