Camino Real Zaashila
- What's Included
We visited Camino Real Zaashila the first week of December 2017. When we arrived we were HORRIFIED when informed that the hotel was under construction and several areas would be closed - including the famous ocean front buffet. While checking in you had to speak over the sound of jackhammers breaking up the concrete floors in different areas in the resort. Sound like a vacation from hell? Well - actually no - it was not.The grounds are lovely, the architecture quite special and the staff are excellent. The food is regional-authentic and well prepared. Make sure you try the grasshoppers in your omelette! The resort was not too busy (probably due to construction) so service was excellent. You never had to wait for a table and when they closed down the seafood restaurant overlooking the beach to start renovations there, they moved all the tables out onto the sand for a lovely beach experience.The pool is beautiful, well maintained and quite large. The beach looks lovely, although you must practice extreme caution due to riptides that appear on windy days. Not the best beach for children or inexperienced swimmers.As a disabled senior with limited mobility, I found the resort difficult to navigate due to it's hillside location. You must be able to navigate stairs to go anywhere. They have a wheelchair ramp from the main level to the pool and beach, but the incline is too steep to navigate in a wheelchair. I had to get out and walk, while my husband pushed the empty wheelchair up and down the ramp. Fortunately I am able to walk short distances so it was only a mild inconvenience.Conclusion: My husband and I will probably pay a return visit to the Camino Real Zaashila, but will DEFINATELY check for construction before we book. :-)
I had a nice 12 nights stay there in November last year. The stuff is amazing, hard working nice people. There were some construction work going during my stay but the place is even better now after that....The hotel is very quiet, secluded in a nice bay, no annoying boom-boom music or anything... basically that is the main reason I chose the Camino real. I had a very relaxing time there. The food choices might not be as wide as a 1200 room hotel in Cancun but there are many other choices to eat. La Crucecita and Santa Cruz are a 10 minutes taxi drive away and you find really nice restaurants there !Pools are very nice, some garden, some grass, awesome beach, good service.Enjoy your stay!Room tip: try to get one by the ocean front. Yeah pay the extra ... it is worth it. Have a great time!
This is the second time we have stayed at Camino Real and it is the best resort in the area. The beach is private, the architecture and landscaping is amazing. Everywhere you look there are beautiful scenes. The pool runs the length of the resort and meanders. The beach bar is a great place to enjoy a beverage and meet other guests. The best thing about the resort is you get to enjoy it with no loud music constantly pounding. You will get to hear the waves and talk to your loved ones you came with with no music making it difficult or distracting you.Food sticks mainly to local specialties which is great to try local cuisine. Mole, seafood, tacos and the typical hamburger, fries and Caesar for those less adventurous.I highly recomend Camino Real for those looking for a peaceful, relaxing time in Mexico on a beautiful beach.
We considered this resort to be delightful. All rooms have a view of the ocean. It is built on two or three levels and we were happily in the lower level. The room was not fancy but beds were comfortable and a/c worked well. Balcony was adequate but more comfortable furniture on it would have been nice.If you are looking for a party atmosphere, this is not the place for you. The beach is steep and undertow strong, but the pool is delightful. The service at the pool (food and beverages) is outstanding.For those who tend to forget they are in a foreign country, the number of staff who speak no English might be a problem, but 90% of them are most accommodating.
One of the great things about Huatulco in general is how close to Mexico City it is (a 1 hour flight). Then Camino Real is only a 25 min drive from the airport. While check-in time is 3 pm or so, our rooms (five total) were ready when we arrived at 11 AM, big plus!The hotel architecture is great, with paths full of greenery, a turtle pond and great lawns, all well within walking distance, nothing is never far. The whole staff is very friendly and eager to welcome you and help you anyway they can. We spent new years day holidays there and as the hotel reached a 100% occupancy the services ran a bit slower: We had to ask for towels or shampoo a couple of times and waiting times at the breakfast restaurant increased up to 15-20 min (consider we were 12 at the table!). Overall, we loved the place, the beach front is wide enough for everyone, menu options are ample and the drink & food service at the palapas in the beach or pool areas are great. Thanks to our daily waiter Pablo who made an excellent job at tending to us, always with a smile and fast delivery. A big advantage of this hotel is that there is no PA music interrupting the sounds of the sea waves, thank you, thank you, thank you.One thing that should be improved is the availability of palapas at the beach. Even when we tried to catch one in the front row early in the morning (7AM), we found they were already taken. We were told people really go early to save their spots.
