We stayed for a long Presidents Day weekend at the Posada del Mar. We were given a very nice room on the third floor with a balcony that overlooked the very nice pool area and had a view across the street to the beach.
Speaking of the beach, that is one of the best things about the Posada. A lot of hotels bill themselves as being 'across the street' from the beach. Then, you have to cross the street, fight through some amount (often extensive) of development and then get to the beach. That is not how the Posada works. You walk out of the front gate, cross the street, cross the sidewalk and you are on the beach. It's wonderful. The Posada also provides free beach towels with your room. They are large, comfortable, and fit perfectly on the beach chairs that the Posada also provides. Technically, the Posada charges a 50 peso fee for the use of the beach chairs (higher if you are not a guest), but in our experience it was not collected most days.
Our room was a very nice size. There was an air conditioning unit, but with the fan on and the door to the balcony open there was absolutely no need to use it. The beds were comfortable and a little warm at night (this *is* this tropics, people!).
The bathroom did have an issue. The Posada has a limited amount of hot water. So, depending on the time of day and the demand for hot water, any shower you take is going to be a Russian roulette of temperature variations. This doesn't just mean for the duration of your shower either. Expect your temperatures to change during the actual shower.
However, aside from that single flaw, the Posada really was a great hotel for a great price. The staff were friendly and helpful. Ultimately it was just right.
