This was a shock to someone who has stayed here in the past many times. The facility is getting more than just a bit long in the tooth. It is falling apart. The staff is wonderful but the rooms are barely functional. No hot water in the shower. Most of the lights were burned out. The dilapidated air conditioning unit...

We stayed at the Fiesta Real on the first night of a three day road trip from Phoenix to San Miguel de Allende, MX. The property is situated on a tranquil part of the bay before you get to the Main part of the city. Although the rooms show as circa 1980, they are clean, have great mattresses (which are...

We spent one night at the Hotel Fiesta Real in San Carlos, Sonora right after Labor Day - there were few guests. The room had paint peeling from the ceiling, no light at the entrance to the room so you had to grope for the lock after dark. There were no towels in the room and the very pleasant receptionist...

The hotel is right on the beach and has a good restaurant. We ate in the Bar with our dog under the table. For those traveling with a...

Reservations: we made a reservation of 1 room for 2 nights. When we arrived we found out that we had a reservation for 2 rooms and one night. Fortunately it wasn't a problem to fix this. Room: Stayed at Room 111. Recently renovated and perhaps the best room at the hotel, not only because it's the only room with TV...

This was my first visit to Mexico ans so my first stay in a Mexican hotel. The Fiesta Real is right on the beach and the room had a view of the sea and was spacious but, it was also very basic, the A/C was old and noisy, although it did cool the room down, that may have been because...

The Fiesta Real continues to be the best deal in town. At 68.00 plus tax for a single, the price could not be beat. The value lies in the beachfront location and the spectacular sunsets. Watching the dolphins swim by is an added treat. While the restaurant and bar continue to be excellent with presentaion and price, the room had...

We could not have enjoyed our 8 nights at the Fiesta Real more. The staff was very friendly. My husband and I were traveling with our three year old and our 7 month old and the hotel seemed very child-friendly. (We brought our own travel bed for the baby so I don't know whether they have cribs available.) Our room...
