“Great & good location”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

I have used this hotel twice to accommodate our guest when touring at the Izapa ruins, the hotel is based in a hill from where you get great views of Tapachula city. I would consider this "Excellent" a. the location of the hotel is nearby the city not too far and you can take a taxi easy from there if you are not having your own car. b. The staff are great and helpful. c. the rooms are very clean and recently they have restored the master suites and better than before. I will still say, if you are looking for a very very luxury Hotel this wont match your expectancy. I will highly recommend this place to any one open to have a great time and not to much of luxury concern!

Best so far near Tapachula!

Room Tip: The rooms 807 is very nice and it is a master suite! good price!

The hotel is situated on a hill with a beautiful view of the volcanoes. It is a 40 peso ride from downtown. The rooms are very spacious and the beds comfortable but the cleaning staff leave the door open when they clean so I was bitten by "No see 'ums" every night, all night. The hotel has a nice pool but the exercise room is pretty "old school." The Bellhop staff are excellent and very friendly. The restaurant has a stunning view and its breakfast buffet is very good. The dinner and lunch meals are pretty average, however. The waiters are poor, often forgetting things or having to be called over to your table. The bar has a nice view but unfriendly staff. The grounds of the hotel are wonderful, with many songbirds. I would stay at this hotel again but will be dining elsewhere.

Hotel Loma Real is an older property, recently renovated on a grand scale. The room was elegant and clean and well appointed, and the air conditioning functioned flawlessly. The service was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding in the classy dining room. There were endless choices food, and the staff anticipated your every need and catered to it. We had stayed at this hotel about four times over the past 40 years, but this most recent incarnation was truly high class.

Stayed at Loma Real on the final few days of a tour of southeastern and southern Mexico. From Tapachula we visited various coffee plantations ("fincas") and cattle ranches ("ranchos") which were less than an hour away. En route, we also saw banana, cacao, mango, papaya and sugar plantations. Plus, the natural tropical vegetation. A very beautiful area.

The hotel is well located on a hilltop, to one side of the city (still just minutes away from anything you may want to see in town). Found the hotel very very comfortable. Excellent rooms and service. The pool was a very nice place to relax after our tours through the countryside. The food in the restaurant was excellent starting by the breakfast buffet with its wide variety of dishes including something for all breakfast appetites (from simple continental to hearty Mexican dishes). Everything absoultely fresh. The fresh homemade pasteries were outstanding. Lunch and dinners were equally superb.

And, of course, the coffee was, by far, the best we have ever tasted!

The Loma Real isn't fancy, but it's clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked well, the staff was helpful, and the restaurant was surprisingly good. I’d stay here again if I ever go back to Tapachula.

The Loma Real is no longer a Travel Lodge. I tried booking through Travelodge and they had no listing of it. After we arrived I found this number in the hotel room for booking: [---]. We showed up without reservations and were welcomed. The hotel is a little run down but I think that it is a common effect of the tropics; heat, humidity, weather. Tapachula is definitely not a tourist town so the Loma Real is not a tourist hotel. It is probably the nicest or one of the nicest in the area however. The desk clerk was friendly but didn't speak English. This, I considered more my problem than it was hers.
The hotel is right outside of town up on a hill so it is quiet and spacious. The town of Tapachula is pretty noisy so it was a nice respite amidst all the hubbub of a Mexican city.
The rooms were sparce but clean and quiet and the locks on the doors seemed adequate if you're worried about that sort of thing. The thing that I liked most was that the air conditioners were working... a separate one in every room. Air conditioning is a rarity in this part of the world, but if you are used to it, it makes all the difference in the world when you are trying to sleep.
We only had breakfast in the dining room. It was typical buffet style that you find in many hotels: cereals, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, and then alot of food that would appeal to a Mexican appetite. The dining room was full of business men, no tourists, no women. Rooms were $75 American /night and breakfast was $13. Not cheap but certainly reasonable and adequate
