Posada Real Los Cabos
Ranked #25 of 43 Hotels in San Jose del Cabo
Reviewed 11 March 2013

This hotel is just what everyone says. It is clean, quiet, good food, and restful! We were looking for a vacation (my husband and I...no kids! yes!) that would be condusive to some real R & R. This is the place for that. It is incredibly affordable. The food is good. Everything shuts down between 10:30 - 11 p.m. There are no loud, crazy partiers running up and down the hallways or crowding the bar at night. Most of the other hotel guests were probably 40 and above. There were a couple of families who have discovered this gem, but not many.

The service is great. When we left we felt like we knew our servers. Everyone greats you with a smile and is eager to help.

The food is authentic and good. Everynight (we stayed 6 nights) was a different meal that had several options to choose from.

The snack bar quesadillas and nachos are out of this world.

There is room on the beach for everyone! When we went walking down the beach, we noticed the crowded beach front of other hotels. It looked like they sardined as many chairs as possible to maximize their profits at the expense of guest comfort. Not so with Posada. There are groups of 4 loungers under each tiki looking umbrella and room for everyone. Talk about relaxing! We even saw whales breaching from where we lay. So amazing!

The rooms are clean. Nothing impressive to look at, but comfy beds, clean bathrooms and a balacony to sit on. The cactus garden is beautiful. The birds sing to you in the morning.

This vacation gave us everything we needed. Which was rest and relaxation. If you are looking for a wild, sleepless vacation, this is not the place. If you want good service, great food and people for a deal...stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for garden view and you will face the ocean and garden.

I mostly agree with the great review's about this place. My wife had a conference at the very very expensive hotel just beside the Posada Real and we felt we did not miss anything. In fact the staff is very nice and you have entertainment almost every night. The restaurant by the pool is very handy and the prices are very low.
Wi-fi is reception is best near the pool bar.
The only issue I found is that the music from the pool bar is VERY LOUND . They could also have more variety in the music as the same music is played often during the day.
All is all, a great place and I would go back if I went again in the area.
Apart form the hotel, note that you cannot swim in the sea because of the strong undertow and the strong waves.
The climate is very dry , thus the reason for the near dying palm trees along the road. You must see the estuary near the Holiday Inn hotel; the path leads you near the town. Their is a lot of vegetation and birds and ducks. Since its free , its not advertised...

The small town is about a 40 minute walk from the hotel (or just take the bus for 9.5 pesos !).
The town is really made for tourists and you will find many many jewelry stores.
You see very little local people as the whole area is simply a tourist place.
Five minutes or so by foot from the Posada Real , their is an ultra modern giant MEGA food and merchandise store and a Starbucks, a Radio Shack and other small stores.
As for the fridge in the room, we did not have one. We wish we had a fridge because we would have saved money and its very convenient.
The climate is great for someone who has arthritis. The area is quite safe and well policed.

On the other hand the climate is very dry, it almost never rains and the whole area is a tourist place & you cannot swim in the sea.
Their is no real sense of true living condition's of a regular town with the real local people living there, because its all modern hotels hotels and shops.

Room Tip: If you go to bed before 11 PM. make sure to ask for a room on the outside of the courtyard, away fro...

This is my second time staying here - it used to be a Best Western three or four years ago, now it has changed hands but the good service has not changed one bit. Perhaps not the fanciest of hotels on the ocean but then it doesn't cost hundreds a night either. What one lacks in novel frills from the expensive resorts, this hotel more than makes up for in first class service. Great guests and a place where one truly feels comfortable. I will definitely stay here again, and again, and again.

Room Tip: I didn't know there were any bad rooms.

We spent 10 days in this resort and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are large enough, though could use some TLC. Very clean and excellent service. There are so many servers to bring you wine, beer or coffee and are always appreciative of any tip you give them ;-) Breakfast is buffet PLUS there is a chef to prepare your choice of omelets.
The buffet (yes, for every meal!) is sufficient and you will always find something to your liking, be it vegetarian, fish, chicken or beef. The desserts are awesome!
This hotel is a low-rise - we stayed on the 1st floor facing the pool and had a lovely view of the ocean. You must ask for this, otherwise you may end up in the back.
I would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 144 - Bed was extremely comfortable.

I read the reviews on this resort before I left and I was scared. The hotel is a little dated but very clean and the grounds are kept immaculate. The staff were awesome.... Jose, Francisco, Jeremiah, Gabriel, and my man Urbano were friendly and catered to our every need. Breakfast was fantastic, I always got an omelet but there were bagels and french toast. From 11am till 5pm then beach bar served tacos hamburgers real clubhouse sandwiches and salsa to die for. Dinner was not so great but I always managed to find something. Knowing dinner may be iffy I always grabbed something from the beach bar at 4ish just in case. In all the reviews I never saw the fact that you could sit in a lounge chair on the beach and watch whale breaching twice a day without moving off the chair. For a buck you can ride into town and shop or drink. Just outside the resort is a Mega store in case you forgot something.12.00 Almond tequila at mini mart around the corner..... The resort is quiet at night ..... partiers went to town. Cool mornings but that just gave you a reason to take a walk or shop or sleep in ;) There is no reason I wont go back to this resort..... Thanks Guys for a great vacation. There is a bar owned by a Canadian in Los Cabos formerly called the Corner Bar. Write your name on the wall there .... she loves Canadian choc. bars

We stayed 5 days. Very clean, very freindly people and staff. We were happy with the experience. The weather was not nice 73 degrees and we could not get in the ocean. Breakfast great, We did not eat any other meals except fish tacos from the bar - excellent. Great experience at the bar and good entertainment except the last night when the drunk ruined it for all by interupting the two musicians. Bartenters great, staff freindly, and very hard working people. We walked on the beach, ate downtown, took two trips to Cabo, seen whales from shore, took a boat ride to lovers beach and beyond ( great boat captain and great tour), and had a fantastic time. We took advantage of all aspects of the Posada. A few tips for people- we ate twice at Shooters great tacos and beer about $2.50. We ate Giant shrimp $28 and $2 beers at another place downtown. We ate twice in Cabo both reasonalble on the beach with beers about 2.50. We rode into Cabo twice the bus cost $3 one way taxi $40. Catch the bus to Cabo at the mega store across from the MacDonalds.Taxi downtown $7 with $2 tip. You can easiily walk downtown we are in our 60's and walked. The boat taxi to lovers beach in Cabo is $10 each but remember tips to get off the beach and tip to the boat driver to give you a tour. We paid $50 in all the tip $20 to the boat driver well worth it. At the hotel I tipped the room cleaning lady $4 each day, I gave the bartender 50 pasos to begin each night and had about 10 -8 ounce beers my wife two drinks. I tipped the breakfast $2 each morning. These are not great tips but I believe I should tip for these services. Most people are from either Canada or Mexico with very few Americans. We met more people at this resort than we have in all the other resorts 5 put together that we been to in Mexico. Very nice and interesting people. Loved it but could not get into the water except for the one time at lovers beach. The beach at Posada not swimable becasue of the current but I think you can buggy board and play around in the ocean. WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND MADE THE BEST OF ALL SITUATIONS.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. I wished we could have had a King bed but so what.

This is not a new hotel. Its dated. The staff keep it very clean.
The layout of the buffet area isn't optimal, but the food provided is fresh and tasty. The breakfast quesadillas with freshly made corn tortillas were my favorite. But the cinnamon french toast was a close second.
The ceviche is simply amazing at the pool bar/restaurant. The all inclusive bar drinks and service were good. The made from scratch mohito's were delicious. The pool was inviting, but 70 degree high temperatures were a bit of a draw back.
Whale watching from under a palapa on the beach was a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon.
We had an amazing sunrise view over the ocean every morning from our "partial ocean view" room while lying in bed even.
If you're looking for a 5 star resort, keep looking, but if you're looking for value, good food, and friendly service, you should give the Posada Real a try.
