Historical Traveler Reviews Posada Real Los Cabos San Jose Del Cabo
Great vacation; pretty good hotel
We've done the Cabo San Lucas thing. Too much like Spring break for us - for anyone over 25, really. The corridor is fine - but boring unless you fish or play golf. But San Jose del Cabo is wonderful! We stayed at the Posada Real - because we like modest Mexican hotels, and because it is small and right on the beach. It was perfect in every way (except some water pressure issues in the shower). the food there is okay. But the guests were all low-key...mostly appeared to be Mexican or Canadian. Did I say the beach is great? $5 for a cab to downtown - where we did go each evening for some drinks and the absolute best food! Favorite: Fandango: by far the best. The people are great all over town. The town was decorated with Xmas lights. We did find a fabulous rock band at the Tropicana. We hope to return again and again.
We were happy, all nine of us........
The posada real was definately charming. Myself, my husband and a small group stayed there while we celebrated our wedding. Although it wasn't a five star hotel, it was friendly, clean and as far as meals, it's not bad. You're so close to so many wonderful restaurants in San Jose del cabo it would be a real shame to spend all your meals in the hotel anyways. The property is nice and well maintained. If you can, ask for a mainfloor suite with beach/oceanfront view, It's much nicer. It's definately not an active resort with all the extra ammenities, so rent a car and see the sites, it's worth it!!
A good Mexican experience
Some of the staff of this four-story Best Western speaks English, but un poquito Espanol is helpful. There were more Mexicans -- from the US and Mexico -- than Anglos staying here, which made it for us a more enjoyable experience. The in-house restaurant Mexican food was fair -- we didn't try their American food. Try going to the breakfast buffet early to get good choices.
The room was average, with a queen bed and 25 or so channels of the usual Hotel TV fare, but with mixed English/Spanish choices. The hotel has the prototypical Los Cabos swim-up bar, though we did not see anyone actually use it, and it was sparsely staffed. The hotel looks like a good place for children, as there were a number of them there.
The beach in July was great, but the surf was high and the wade-in was steep, so we did not swim in the Sea of Cortez. There are other places up the coast you can swim though.
All in all, if you don't want a thoroughly American experience where everyone speaks English and the food is all American etc., this is a fine place to stay.
Cost: US$99/night for a two people.
This place was great. I don't know what they other reviews were saying.
No, its not a resort, but we loved it. Nice room, with air conditioning and a view of the ocean. Plumbing was fine. Its just what you'd expect from a Best Western, but its on a huge deserted beach.
BEST TRIP SO FAR!
I stayed at La Posada Real in 2002 during Labor Day Weekend. As soon as we checked in, I knew that this hotel had been the right choice...the staff was very helpful throughout our stay during this weekend. The gardens, the large pool, the access to the beach, the view from our hotel room....I loved it all. I have great memories of this trip thanks to La Posada...
Incredible value for the money
Very pleasantly surprised! We blindly chose this hotel from an online last minute deal site and were surprised at how beautiful this hotel was! The beaches were pristine and private, the service was great, and the amenities were more than adequate. Yes, the food in the restaurant was pricey, but there are many great local places within walking distance which are much cheaper. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the ocean and the pool. The pool facilities were very clean, and had a cozy "swim up" bar. I think there were maybe 10 other guests in the hotel so it had a very mellow - get away from civilization - vibe. If you're looking to chill out on a deserted, gorgeous beach in a very comfortable hotel, this is the place to check out. An excellent value for travellers on a bit of a budget.
Not so bad!
Yes, it's true that there is no water pressure, the toilet seat does not stay up, and the rooms are not exactly sound-proofed, but this is Mexico! Have a cervesa and relax!! The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel was practically deserted during our stay (end of March), so we had the pool and restaurant pretty much to ourselves. The room was nicely decorated and clean, and the balcony was spacious with a nice view of the ocean and pool. It may be a bit boring for singles, but for couples who want to relax and kick back, it is well worth it, and very reasonably priced. I suggest renting a car if you intend to visit Cabo and other attractions during your stay, as a cab ride would end up costing much more.
Don't do it!
Stayed here two years ago. Was the worst!! The grounds are beautiful, pool was dirty, rooms were noisy, dirty, bugs, not what we reserved, cost more than we were quoted, food was very marginal. Sorry, but stay away from this one!!
Worse deal in Los Cabos
This is Not a resort hotel! It is a Motel 6 at the beach. Amenities are available
at a price: Tennis court padlocked, price $10/hr; Refrigerators in rooms,
available at $4/day; Safety deposit boxes, they rent the key per day. So many
trees have been planted between the beach and the hotel, you can no longer
see the ocean. Only 8 rooms in the whole place where you can see the water.
We changed our room 5 times til we found one. Jacuzzi/Pool has the heat
turned off at 5pm. Temp of the Jacuzzi and Pool are the same, so kids just
use the Jacuzzi as a wading pool hours on end during the day. No hot water
at the bathroom sinks. Shower has no pressure, with water fluctuating hot/cold
throughout use. Bath counters built too far out, so toilet seats won't stay up.
Room next door bought duct tape to keep theirs up. Pillows are hard as rocks.
Mattresses either have springs popping through or so hard they feel like a sheet
of plywood. Restaurant plays loud 60's/70's rock n' roll. Food is very poor,
extremely small portions, and expensive. Hotel staff starts their day at 6 am
at the pool and makes a racket, making sure that no one gets any rest.
Vacation from Hell!!!
Be wary of what you read about this hotel. What they actually have and what they operate may be two different things. You might need an extra suitcase to carry water to shower in, as we had none. Don't expect your meal to be authentic, as Taco Bell possesses better service and is more appealing. The golf course may be across the street, but the club house and entrance is a hike! This definitely is a "think before you go" location.

... which was dead fancy with aircon in all the rooms and a shared pool within the complex which nobody else seemed to use. When I grow up I definitely want daily access to a pool, it's the best!
On Thursday we decided to explore San Jose del Cabo town which turned out not to have a lot on offer. First we wanted to check out the church but on the way up to it whilst Leila was telling me an unbelievable story I accidentally shouted really ...
We both wake today to nasty hangover headaches and get straight into the Panadol and aspirin before sinking some coffee and bread and jam for breakfast. Purto is completely out of it as didn't get much sleep and we are struggling a bit so head out for a walk. Come back and have some burritos at the place across the road, and they were fantastic. Purto is still dead asleep so we head to the beach as we have our washing done and can't get it ...
... We had the famous Chicken soup (you get a plate of extras to throw in as you choose) and Mexican eggs. Really tasty and the place was dirt cheap. Then we walked back along the beach.. about half an hour. Back to laying on the beach. Yesterday I got a wee bit too much sun so I tended to stay under the umbrella. We got some bracelets made, they are quite cool and very Cabo. The beach hawkers are so annoying but they are really nice and when you buy something and they ...

Los Cabos has so much to offer and I’m definitely going to recommend my parents to come here one day. Quick breakdown of the highlights for those who took one look at the length of this blog and decided to just enjoy the pictures…

... read on the balcony and played cards (Roger's turn to kick my butt), then went for a walk the other direction on the beach. We saw an enclosure for a turtle nest that was laid in Nov and was estimated to hatch on Jan 3, but it's still there so not sure what the status is. We had a bite to eat in the condo, then went and sat in the pool (the temperature is the same as bathwater - solar heated ... ahhh), and then laid on the pool deck for awhile. ...
