... encourage each other to see more of the world and we enjoy each others company as friends, as well as a family. We both enjoy the life in the coast and I personally feel the happiest when around a beach. But going to Los Cabos was a new adventure. I must say Los Cabos is one of the beautiful beaches Mexico has to offer. Putting into consideration that I have been to a few beaches in the past and not to mention in 2012, I went to a hidden beach, which I very much enjoyed ...
This morning, we walked to the English book store to buy a few books, as I read the only one in the condo and forgot mine at home. Didn't have the ones I was looking for, but I bought one. When we came home, we stopped at the condo office, only to find they have a little library of loaner books there. Doh!
This afternoon, we took the Urbano (local bus) to the ...
... the peso and no 200 pesos is not 14 dollars and the exchange is not 13 to a dollar. For those of you that don't know much about the peso it's about 12 to a dollar and 200 pesos is much closer to 17 dollars than 14. So haggling with Mexicans became fun because quickly they would realize that I wasn't just another stupid tourist and that I wasn't going to buy their product just for any price that they named.
... to find a couple of lounge chairs that had both sun and shade. Temps have been in the low 90's since we got here. There was a nice breeze coming off the ocean at the sky pools so it stayed a nice temperature the whole time we were there. Around 1 pm we both were kind of hungry so we ordered a very good pizza. Size is around the size of a medium back in US, and cost about $9 or there about. It was fun to people watch since you could see all kinds from all over the world it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Posada Real Los Cabos San Jose Del Cabo
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!!
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.
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...
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!!
This is Not a resort hotel! It is a Motel 6 at the beach. Amenities are available
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.
