“Wonderful colonial style boutique hotel and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

In the heart of the "Pueblo Magico"(Magical Village) of Coatepec, Veracruz, Mexico, the Posada Coatepec is an the perfect place to relax with all the modern amenities with a colonial mexican charm. As soon as you walk through the arched door towards the interior flower filled patio with its wishing well, you feel you are in another time. The restaurant has a wide variety of local and interrnational dishes, freshly prepared by experienced chefs.
Each of the hotel's rooms has a different name of a city or town(Tokyo, New York, Las Vigas, etc.) instead of numerical, and the decoration changes for each one.
The swimming pool is great for enjoying a warm morning or afternoon. The Villa in the far corner is excellent for a family vacation while one explores the incredible surrounds of this enchanting Veracruz region.

“not great and too expensive for what was offered”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

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!

“Excelent dinning and family atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

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.

“Excellent Service - Very Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

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.

“Inconsistent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2009

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.
