Hotel Posada de Roger Review

If you hang around the pool or the small shared balcony overlooking the street and the bay beyond, it's not hard to get to know the other guests—many of them savvy budget travelers from Europe and Canada. Rooms are spare and vaultlike—some are downright dark. Fredy's Tucan, indoor-outdoor bar-restaurant (no dinner; $) is popular with locals—mainly for breakfast. The hotel is in a part of the Zona Romántica known for its restaurants and shops; Playa los Muertos is a few blocks away.

    Best budget bargain in PV

    I have stayed at Posada de Roger a dozen times, and continue to return there frequently.

    The location is excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful, the hotel is squeaky clean and well maintained.

    All rooms have private bath, ceiling fan, air conditioning, satellite TV. You can get a small frig brought to the room for an additional fee (currently $5usd/day).

    Security lockboxes are available off the reception desk for free (with key deposit). The front desk changes money matching the daily rates at the cambios.

    The pool and rooftop sundeck are small but welcoming, with plenty of sun and loungers available. Lots of tropical plants make the courtyards welcoming.

    This is a basic hotel at a basic price, not for the faint-of-heart. You will feel part of the "real Mexico" staying here.

    Fredy's El Tucan (only one "d") is without a doubt the best breakfast in town. Stellar restaurant with impecable food and service.

    I disagree that there is a problem with 1st floor security. I have never encountered any issues of that sort in many many visits.

    Also note the 4th floor communal kitchen is not currently open to guests (only staff).
