the prices were definitely too high for the food that was offered and the location, service was also a bit indifferent, not really worth it... only positive is the beautiful setting!

My family and I have been going to the Posada for over 25 years now, always enjoying our delicous and varied meals. The fountain in the center courtyard gives the hotel a colonial hacienda feeling. Well worth the visit while enjoying the Pueblo Magico Coatepec.

Menu is a bit limited, but well prepared. Probably past it's prime, but still the best meal in town. Prices keep it from being called the best value for a meal though.

The Posada Coatepec is located in the town of Coatepec, approximately seven miles from Xalapa and is located in the hotel of the same name.

We visited the Posada Coatepec on two separate occasions, six months apart and had strikingly different experiences.

On the first occasion (mid-2008), the food was interesting and exquisite - among the finest restaurants we have eaten at anywhere in the world. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was delightful.

When we returned to Coatepec four months later, we made a beeline for the Posada Coatepec. We were terribbly disappointed. The menu was not nearly as varied, the food was mediocre at best (and somewhat overpriced) and the service was horrendous. Generally, restaurant service in Mexico is excellent and far superior to U.S. restaurants. Not so during our December, 2008 visit to the Posada Coatepec. Although the restaurant was far from crowded, we waited 45 minutes for our meal. Our waietr, who had only two tables to attend to at that point, was entirely inattentive and never even came to us for dessert selections. We had to seek him out to obtain our check at the end of the evening. Probably some of the worst service we have ever experienced during our travels through Mexico.

Bottom line - it's tough to recommend the Posada Coatepec given our very mixed experiences, especially because it is a fairly precey venue.
