Newly remodeled rooms with ocean view balconies!

roadlesstraveledguy (Cannon Falls, Minnesota) on May 10, 2019

The Posada Real has been my go to hotel in Ixtapa for many years and I'm pleased to share photos of their recent remodeling! They are adding balconies to the ocean side of the hotel and have remodeled these rooms, bathrooms & showers. Also the remodeled rooms have new softer beds for us gringos! I'm still glad to see they have the same friendly and attentive staff, some of whom who have worked at the hotel for over 30 years. I have stayed at other hotels in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo but when I stay at the Posada Real it feels like I'm staying with friends!

Wonderful family stay

CamilleAutumn on Apr 14, 2019

The location, beach, pools, staff & cleanliness was excellent! At about 10:30pm everything quiets down for the night, which was perfect for our family vacation. We loved that is was a small resort, easy to get around. The food was just okay, but there are many great restaurants near by. The resort building & furniture are a bit run down. Otherwise we can’t say enough good things about Posada Real Ixtapa! We will go again.

Quiet and clean and very affordable.

This is a great little place. While you can find more luxury resorts, this one is great value. It's a small place (110 rooms). Only has one restaurant. Not a huge selection but certainly satisfied. Breakfast was fabulous. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The pool is wonderful and I'm thinking the best beach. Sadly, the treadmills in the fitness area weren't working, but I ran outside instead. It's a very safe place. The hotel has some balconies now and it looks like they're adding more. I wish I knew we could have upgraded to a balcony room. My biggest beef is that they wouldn't give us two keys for our room.

The Jewel of Ixtapa

MonarchFollower on Mar 06, 2019

My friend and I have never been to Ixtapa. It is difficult to choose where to stay from pictures and maps. We thought that a smaller hotel would be better. I asked Luis de la Maza for his recommendation and he said yes. I had been in contact with him regarding a Monarch Butterfly tour as he has his own tour guide business. We were very happy with the hotel. The people were very friendly. We knew there was only one resturant and it provided more than we needed. I was happy with the fish, fruit, and eating fresh. There was never a line up anywhere and there was always a place for shade. The view from the pool was spectacular and the evening swims under the stars was equally lovely. We are from Canada and were very content to watch the sting rays ride the waves while sipping margaritas. The hotel was very quiet, day and night. No salsa classes, no night life, no blaring music. Just the sound of the ocean pounding the shores. The hotel was very clean and the staff worked hard keeping it spotless. We took a break from the beach for a 2 day tour inland to see the butterflies and Luis took us on a private tour to Zihuatanejo on our last day. This saved us time and energy. Otherwise we enjoyed the beach very much. Beacause it is a tourist area there are vendors selling their wares walking up and down the beach all day. I have travelled all over and I have never met such respectful people. They were noticeably great. I would definitely return to Posada Real. What a gem.
