My boyfriend and I didn’t realize everything books way in advance for Christmas, but I was grateful to find a room for us for five days at Posada Mexico, even if it didn’t have a private bathroom and was right next to the kitchen/restaurant/party area. They did warn us in advance, but unfortunately, I didn’t realize how bad it would all be.
The restaurant is lovely. We went to happy hour several times – two for one drinks, and free yummy snacks. It’s a great spot to watch the sunset. We also ate breakfast there a few times, which was quite nice.
The entire place is designed with quite a lovely style, really pretty actually.
When we arrived, it took them a while to figure out who we were and that we had a room. Finally, they were like, “Oh, there’s no bathroom. You still want it?”
Our room was small but cute. The bathroom situation wasn’t great – we had keys all attached (so if my boyfriend went to the bathroom I couldn’t go to the bathroom or get into our room if I wasn’t there or into the locker) and others had the same key – so you had to knock and hope the person heard you over the noise and that you didn’t barge in on anyone. The shower was cold water and you had to hold it down to make it work the entire time.
Our mosquito net was not set up right and it was impossible to seal it. (I’ve been to the Amazon several times and slept with mosquito nets there and elsewhere so I know how to use them.) I slept, sweating, with a long-sleeved shirt. My boyfriend woke up miserable and covered with bites and wanting to leave. I was bitten up (except for where my shirt and shorts were).
Also, the room is RIGHT next to the restaurant and they were having parties every night – fun. Trapeze, circus sort of things. Loud loud music.
Unfortunately, because of the combination of things (bad mosquito net, noisy area, terrible bathroom situation), we left early after just one night and moved to the comfortable Brisa Marina Posada right nearby.
