Camino Real Zaashila
- What's Included
This was our second trip to Huatulco as a family & we were very pleased with the Camino Real. Loved the ocean view from our room & patio as well as the lovely pool. The pool is immaculate & goes on forever with lots of palapas both poolside & on the beach. We appreciated the lack of entertainment as we prefer to relax & enjoy the views. There was some live music several nights - a jazz trio which was lovely. The staff worked very hard to put on a gala for New Years Eve, which was wonderful.All of the staff were very friendly & accommodating. They really can't do enough for you & are very gracious. That atmosphere & the beautiful weather are big draws to Huatulco for us, as well as the fact that we feel very safe there, even with our daughters (2 are 20 & 1 is 17) staying in a separate room from us.We made several trips to la Creucicita for supper at La Crema & Mama Mia's, both of which were great. We also went to Entrega for snorkelling one day. The beach at the resort is beautiful & uncrowded, but was quite rough for swimming in.The food was great, with lots of fresh fruit at breakfast & a good variety for both lunch & supper. We had 2 lovely suppers at the a la carte, which has amazing views of the ocean & night sky as well as great food & wonderful service.We can't wait to go back!
This was our first trip to Huatulco and it won't be our last. What a wonderful place full of friendly people! I'm shocked more people don't vacation here.Check-in was fast & very efficient. We were greeted with cool face towels and cocktails. Very refreshing! They transported us to our room on a golf cart with our luggage and left to enjoy our vacation.As for the hotel, it's a beautiful property designed with a Mediterranean aesthetic (whitewashed buildings, blue waters, etc.). It's located on one of Huatulco's many bays, Tangolunda Bay, so it's secluded with its own private beach. It's a beautiful beach that's kept immaculately clean. Unfortunately it's not very swimmable but we did enjoy lounging on the beach and our daily morning/evening walks on the beach. The pool runs along the length of the property & is also kept very clean. In fact, the entire property is spotless. There are plenty of chairs along the pool and we never had an issue finding spots. Our room was very large with a comfortable bed. It is slightly dated but we didn't mind that very much. We were given a corner room on the top floor with a large balcony. We enjoyed breakfast on our balcony once and many cocktails watching the sunset. The rooms on the lower floors had their own private pools off the balconies but we didn't want to lose our stunning view so we decided not to move. The bathroom was very spacious with two sinks in opposite ends. Getting ready was not an issue at all.The food at the resort was decent. We loved the fact that lunch & dinner are a la carte, despite the all inclusive price. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty to choose from, including some traditional Mexican dishes. We both quite enjoyed it. We had lunch poolside and loved the fresh seafood. Shrimp & fish tacos under your own palapa anyone? Fantastic! We were generous with our tips & didn't have to wait too long for drinks. There's only one bar near the pool so it can be a bit of a wait sometimes. We enjoyed our meals at the restaurants too, but they often ran out of entrees. The meals we did have were very tasty thought. The catch of the day seemed to be either snapper or grouper which we thought was funny but it was delicious fresh fish. My husband, who loves ice cream, was over the moon to discover that they serve Haagen Dazs at the resort. I lost count of the number of scoops he had during our week long stay!Overall, I think the property needs to iron out a few kinks and make some upgrades. I would have enjoyed some music around the pool during the day and perhaps a couple of evening shows during the week. As much as I loved the peace and quiet, some music & entertainment Wouk did have been a welcome change.
Service was off the charts great, room was comfy and clean, food was ok but all inclusive resorts everywhere the food is at best average, beautiful locale, private beach, stunning views, helpful people answering all our questions. Sure wifi is dodgy, so what, are you on a holiday or still at work? Who cares about tv, room service always. Do yourself a favour and leave a buck or two now and then for the waiters and your service will soar. We loved it, finished my book. If you are in for party and nightlife this is not the resort. Move along
We took hours exploring the immaculate grounds and unique architecture of this beautiful resort. The beach is very nice but the surf gets pretty rough often. I wouldn't recommend the all-inclusive packages, we didn't have the best luck with the on property restaurants (firstly meals are at specific times only). I would always recommend getting out and experiencing the culture and La Crucecita is nice, safe, and always happening..plenty of good food options. Also be sure to see both Copalita and Caculuta parks and if your into snorkeling hit the beach at Entegra.
The hotel is great, amenities and food are good, the beach is clean and beautiful awesome pool.Sadly the Mexican way demands for you to wake up early and save a bed by the pool or beach as the locals do, otherwise you will be seating on a normal chair without a shade.And the hotel staff don't seem to care neither interested in helping out, although half of the saved beds aren't used...thats the only hiccup!
