    I have just completed my stay at the Posada Real Hotel. Overall the experience is very pleasant. I am vegan so I did text the hotel before my trip to find out about their food options. The daily breakfast buffet has plenty of fruit and a few vegan dishes like beans and cooked veggies. I also requested an early check-in. The general manager granted my request and allowed my all-inclusive package to start as soon as I arrived at 10 am vs usual 2 pm. The general manager came over to greet me even though it was his day off so that was very nice of him. My room type was the one with a terrace and an ocean view. It was a very nice, bright room with everything I needed including a safe (management, please add an in-room safe to the list of amenities available in the room). My room was on the ground floor but the terrace is fully enclosed so a family with small children can safely let them play outside. The grounds are nice. Food during lunch and dinner is basic. I only had lunch once which is offered at the Coconut Club, but the food was cold and tasteless. So, I suggest the hotel does something about that. Overall, the staff is very professional. Not everybody speaks English. The hotel offers a special dinner a few times a week that requires a sign-up. I did not try it since there weren’t any vegan options and I ate out most of the nights. The hotel invites a very, very nice band every Tuesday and Thursday night. They are Italian and sing in many languages. They were such a treat! Food service overall is mediocre. There is no alcohol served for breakfast, so I did miss my usual morning vacation mimosas. :) In fact there is no sparkling wine at all offered at the resort. The Coconut Club is older. The drinks selection is limited, so is the food selection. I liked the VillaSol club which is right next door to the right. It’s 200 pesos per person to get in and it becomes a credit towards food and drink purchases. The grounds of the Villa Sol club are very nice and they offer nice food, drinks, massages. There are a few ping-ping tables too. You need to either bring your own towels or rent for 50 cents and leave your ID as a collateral. The ocean is swimmable on calmer days and very clean since very few people go into the water. The beach is practically empty. The water can be rough, so be careful. I am a good swimmer but I would not attempt to go into the water every day. I did walk over to the Coral Beach once as well. It’s a 5 minute walk from the Coconut Club to the left. There are some rocks along the path but you can walk around them. The Coral Beach is nice but you might consider brining your water shoes. There are other beaches in PE like Carrisalillo and Manzanilla that are much calmer than Bacocho or Coral Beach. Turtle release place is right on the beach pass Villa Sol club and they do it every day at 5 pm. I would stay at the Posada Real Hotel again. I would purchase a daily breakfast option but most likely eat lunch and dinner out. There are many options available within a walking distance from the hotel. El Nene restaurant was excellent. I did a few day tours and a night tour of bioluminescence which were fun and educational. This was my first time in Puerto Escondido. I fully enjoyed my stay and would love to go back sometime in the future.

    Beautiful hotel, excellent service

    If you’re visiting Puerta Escondido - STAY HERE! The beach here is perfect. The service was amazing, the staff go above and beyond for you! The beach club was also phenomenal. Location is great, not far from other hotspots in the Escondido area.

    Stay away from it

    The hotel service is atrocious ! Sheets were dirty. Shower mouldy. The walls in the room are so thin that we could not sleep because of the next door client snoring like a bear. The food is scarse, poor quality, badly cooked. The pools are big but I could see rings of grease on the surface. Nobody speaks a word of English . Shower is hot or cold. I ended up having a cold shower not to be scolded . Good luck then!!!

    Had stayed the last two years at posada real Los cabo and decided to try Puerto Escondido based on our love of cabo resort. Booked in January for our anniversary trip in December only to arrive and find all the pools on coco level closed for renovations. A little warning ahead of arrival or even at check in would have been nice or even the first morning when we were trying to catch the beach shuttle but no we were left clueless until we walked up to the club level and my husband went wtf. Otherwise trip was wonderful and buffet staff very friendly but don’t expect drink service. Seemed like such a beautiful place but didn’t live up to the service we experienced at los cabo so will be going back there instead. Sorry I couldn’t write the same glowing reviews for this resort. At least the dolphins and turtles lived up to my dreams

    The staff, the food, the beach, the hotel, it was all incredible. I cannot say enough nice things about the general manager. He was an amazing person who really went above and beyond to help us on our last day of the trip. I have recommended this hotel to every one that I know and I will definetly be back!
