Posada Real Puerto Escondido
Ranked #8 of 47 Hotels in Puerto Escondido
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2014

This resort is clean, the outdoor space is exceptional (sunsets and pools and private Baccocho Beach), and service is outstanding. Our only disappointment was the size of the room. My husband & I stayed for a week with our 15 year old son. Each room has two double beds (not queens!) or one King. All rooms have windows only, no balconies, which is a shame. So the sq footage of the rooms is tight for 3 adults; probably good for 2 adults/1-2 little kids. The grounds are amazingly pretty. If you don't want to deal with any people, this beach is for you. Downside is the rough surf, which was hazardous all but 3 days of our 6. There are other beaches to spend time in, but this is a walker's/local fisherman's beach; only 5 people seen per hour. Excellent sunsets! And having an excellent restaurant, bar & pool down by beach, with nice palapas, make this a solid place to stay for the day, especially for a couples get away. But this resort has great real estate, lots of privacy, close enough to restaurants & shops in Riconado strip center. We were there during a slow season, so they had buffets for most meals. When we didn't want to eat that much, the cook accommodated us to make cheeseburgers & fries off menu; wonderful customer service. The front desk had challenges with language and communication on serious issues, i.e. can you change money? One staff member said no, the next one said yes; this was a big hassle for us to spend 2 hours in a bank trying to exchange $.

Room Tip: The end rooms on each floor seem to have more space/windows. But no one has a balcony.

Spent a week in Puerto searching for property and used the Posada as home base. Great staff. Food was great. Room was clean. Best beach. Its not a resort with partying and boozing. Relax & chill best describes.

Room Tip: Your only sleeping so don't get caught up on the room. if your looking for anything else stay in...

Heading for a third stay at this hotel. The beach is amazing; the beach pool is a great respite from the heat and the upper level pool is too. The location is particularly good for a sunset view. The buffet meals are just fine with both Mexican and "American" food on offer (and a good soup every day at lunch). At breakfast, the staff are ready to make omelettes to order.. After day 1, the staff know that I want tea instead of coffee - they are very attentive. I wonder why guests quibble about the rooms? How much time do they spend in them? They are standard size, clean and comfortable. As for bugs, well this is the tropics.

Room Tip: Ocean side room windows open to the sea breeze so no need for air conditioning.

this hotel is what I would call a typical Mexican hotel.we stayed for a week[leave tomorrow]and were about the only gringos here!we came via sunwing and it was pretty cool getting off the plane with hundreds of others and being the only ones getting in a taxi from huatulco to Puerto!left in freezing weather and now zooming up 200 with icy cerveza from the gas station and windows wide open!!ahhhhh.if you want sandals or secrets, real is not for you.if you realize that your room is for sleeping and washing in and want a great experience give this place a try.the grounds and rooms etc are as described by others but I have ZERO complaints about them.the staff and manager are wonderful,kind and smiling tho the staff have limited English.
we were spoilt tho as our first few days were al a carte due to small numbers staying.then it filled up with Mexican families so switched to buffet.the al a carte was great...the buffet,good.this gave us the opportunity to try local restaurants all a massive $2.50[25 peso]taxi ride away.fantastic!!santé fe,paris bistro,el nene etc etc.cocos beach club is brilliant.beautiful beach and NO people.try pez gallo rest next door on the beach for lunch!we had fillet mignon and coconut shrimp and shared[home made surf n turf]with cervazas and a bloody mary still less than $40.!
I will be back for sure

we had a great time at the posada real
the hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking the beach , all the staff is really helpful and friendly
the grounds around the hotel are well kept and maintained
we really enjoyed Cocos Beach club,the Beach is amazing , no big crowds, just a great place to
relax, food, drinks and service is great at Cocos
Yes, the rooms are very basic and could use some TLC, but you don't spend much time in your room anyway
overall, we believe it is a great value and we are planning to stay at the posadsa real again

We stayed here due to a flight being cancelled and were pretty disappointed with the quality of the room. The rooms are very very basic and minimal. Not to mention we saw cockroaches in the room and it is supposed to be 5 stars! Food from the restaurant was horrible and greasy too Americanized for our liking. On a more positive note there are good views and good pools to pass the day; however there are better places to stay in puerto Escondido.

Reviewed 24 September 2013

All aspects of the hotel/resort other than the room was great. The reception area and staff were friendly. The pool near the rooms was good. The Coco's Beach club a short walk or complimentary bus ride away was stunning. Great beach, good pool, nice food and drinks. They even cooked a fish I caught for me. However, the rooms are a real let down. Badly in need of modernisation, refurbishment and a good lick of paint. They bear little resemblance to the description given on the website. The beds claimed to be Tempurpedic, but were in fact not (although comfortable nonetheless). I could only receive the free wifi by placing my computer on the sink in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with good wifi
