“San Jose Del Cabo Vacation”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We stayed at the Posada Real Los Cabos June 30 to July 6. Three couples - we had a blast! The hotel is right on the beach and is very relaxing. We did ask for the mattress topper to soften up the bed - which I recommend if you don't like it really firm. They have palapas and lounge chairs for everyone. The pool is very nice. We really enjoyed the food - enough choices to take care of everyone. The drinks are not the greatest but we bought beer at the store nearby and walked to town a couple of times as well. It's a short walk to rock and brew where you can have a really nice cocktail or beer and on Friday and Saturday nights they have live bands. We loved it! I would recommend staying here and venturing out a bit. MIght be worth getting a rental car if it doesn't cost too much. It about $40 to get to cabo in a cab - they do have a rental car place on site for $60 a day which we took advantage of one day. If you want a quiet place on the beach, with good food and basic services, I would recommend the Posada. and the staff was great!

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the ocean - it was beautiful!

A cozy hotel for those who want to escape the craziness of bigger hotels. This is NOT for you if you like the all-day entertainment staff ("c'mon everybody let's play volleyBALLL!"), lip-synched "shows", kid/teen camps of other hotels; there is none of that here. Instead you get one small pool, a beautiful cactus garden, one small buffet restaurant with excellent food (always at least one item cooked to order available), and pleasant service. There is live music for a couple of hours each night in the lobby. The rooms are indeed plain and could use a makeover, but why are you in your room when there is so much to enjoy outside? The pool area could use a wee bit of organizing in terms of towels (self-serve but often no towels available), and while the waiters work hard, we could only get one to crack a smile (Jeremias, super friendly). The hotel is handy in that you can walk to the nearby Mega store (but beware the timeshare sharks that will follow you around inside). A slightly further walk takes you to the town of San Jose del Cabo (a sleepy counterpart to the dizzying buzz of Cabo San Lucas down the highway), and a few blocks away is a beautiful and rarely advertised estuary and migratory bird sanctuary.

Room Tip: "outer" garden view rooms face small cactus beds and have a view of the ocean, but mostly...

travelled to the Posada Real on June 23 to 30th. I have read the reviews before going, there was a lot of good but a few bad. Thought we would make our own decision when we got there. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED!!! It's a smaller hotel and a bit older, but who cares!! I loved that it was small and it definitly didn't bother that it was a older. Rooms we nice and clean, air conditioner works wonderful. Bed was good was comfy.
Food was great. They only have the one dining area for everything. And yes there may be some same food every day, but they do try to make different food every day also. And it is very tasty. Our waiter Jerimahia was awesome. Thank you for everything!The pool taco stand is awesome! Lots of variety on everything.
lobby bar was good, a bit busy at times but still good. Pool swim up bar is great. A big shout-out to Francisco the bartender at the pool bar,,, he is such a great guy, and is always there to take care of you!! Makes great drinks, not to strong,,, just enuf. We hope to see you again soon!!
There was no nightly entertainment when we were there, maybe cuz it was pretty slow, but we didnt mind. Made our own entertainment.
All in all, it was a wonderful trip. There was 6 of us, one who was a 13 yr old. None of us had anything to complain about. We all had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: we stayed on the lower floor, so we could have 3 rooms together. our rooms were good, can't comm...

I would rate the property as a whole as 2.5 out of 5 stars. I would rate the room as 2 out of 5 stars. This is a place that is authentically Mexican and most of the guests were Spanish speaking. But also very accommodating to gringos. The food is solidly good, but not amazing. And somewhat lacking in variety. If you like authentic Mexican food as I do, you'll be quite happy. The beach is not swimmable due to riptides, but a few folks waded out regardless. The room was nice, but the bathroom needed a facelift. For the price and experience, I would recommend this place. If you're looking for an upscale property, this is the wrong place to stay. PS - the beds tend to be stiff - but we run into this everywhere in Mexico.

My husband and I were married in January on the beach in front of the Posada Real. We had 20 guests staying at the hotel for our event and every one of them left thoroughly impressed. The hotel staff is friendly and engaged, working to make your stay excellent. As a bride, even I managed to relax and have fun a bit before my wedding, which anyone who is married will know is no small feat! Staff like Urbano and Benito stand out and by the end of our stay they felt like friends. We missed them so much we went back four months later, and intend to continue to head down whenever we can. If the Posada Real can take on a wedding, they can take on anything. I highly recommend you give it a try.

My wife and I took a little drive from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas. Cabo san Lucas was way too much for us, we're used to a slower passed Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is like going to Los Angeles. Stayed our first night at a glitz and glamor condo which was not for us. San Jose Del Cabo at the Posada Real was just the ticket. The hotel is a little old as in style, but for Mexico standards it was perfect for us. The room was clean, bed was firm and had a view of the ocean from the balcony. The staff was EXCELENT; the bell boy, desk manager, bar tenders, waiters were all very kind at every request. We only stayed one night and when we left it felt like we were leaving family.

I'm sorry to say that but I was not impressed with this resort at all, Hotel Rooms need a major cleaning the tiles in the bathrooms should be white as this is the colour they had originally but they are almost black, Bathtops need a good cleaning as well. I know I was going to a 3-4 star resort acording from other reviews but when I have arrived that was not the case. The Buffet food I have to admit it was okay would be nice to see some decorations like other resorts have. The crew on the other hand is horrible. No service at all you have to get everything yourself. Only person that is acctually working is their boss and all other are staying and talking among each other, good luck getting coffe if you dont get it yourself. Baby seats are dirty so if you planning to stay there bring your own sanitizer wipes. Reception and check in and check out ok with no issues. Bar in the Lobby closed for most of the day so you have only one bar at the pool. Food by the pool very good just menu stays the same all week. Resorts grounds are very nice and kept maintained. Resort has a very nice location and you will get rest and good vacation as long as you can put up with these things mentioned above. We are not picky family as we have seen a lot but while being there youll see same things for Yourself

Room Tip: Any room will be the same we had a room facing Hola Grand Faro and the ocean and the room location w...
