Camino Real Zaashila
- What's Included
Just spent 10 days here and it was amazing! I was worried about a few things after reading reviews, but everything was great. The most exceptional thing is the service. Each and every person there was beyond friendly and went out of their way to make our vacation extra special. They really are the nicest people you could hope for. I am a sensitive sleeper and found the beds very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are well appointed. They are not plush because the humid climate is not appropriate for that, but with the tile floors and minimal furnishings they feel very clean and calm. The air conditioning worked so well too.The spa is lovely. We each had several services and all was perfection and very well priced.The food was very good overall. The breakfast buffet was vast with options for every mood. We also had lunch there every day and half of our dinners. It is not a Michelin starred restaurant and it is not America so one cannot expect the same food. Expect it to be different. Ceviche is amazing there. Quesadillas are delicious and served with guacamole and pico. Lobster was huge and delicious (order steamed not grilled). Shrimp tacos are also delicious. For room service our favorites were club salad, club sandwich, French onion soup, pasta Bolognese, and a great burger.This place is amazing. Piles of soft, big towels and comfortable chaise everywhere, swimming in the ocean or laying under the tikis watching the waves rolling in, relaxing in the peaceful infinity pool, or playing in the large meandering pool beneath the palm trees, there is something for everyone. We will be back next year!
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at this lovely property, we appreciate the comments from previous visitors regarding the hotel fees, we decided before going that we would just pay the 180 pesos per day just to avoid any surprises at the end of our stay and other than not not being all inclusive we were able to enjoy all other benefits other than food and drinks offered by the resort without any further costs. The room itself was wonderful, comfortable bed, spacious as depicted in the pictures and well equipped. We stopped at the Super Che in La Crucecita before going to our room and recommend going to the room first to see what previous guests have left before going shopping as we bought duplicate items. The staff were amazing, always ready and willing to help with anything you needed and always with a smile. Most of our past travels have been to Cuba and as much as we love it there it was nice to go somewhere where the staff were not asking for a handout, we have found our new home away from home, whether at this resort or just somewhere else in Huatulco. While we were there we did a few excursions and highly recommend Hurricane divers for scuba diving and they also offer a day tour of scuba diving or snorkeling for those that don't scuba dive. This tour requires booking in advance as they prepare a wonderful lunch that requires a fair amount of preparation, Pauline and the rest of the staff are are very attentive and do all they can to make this day special. we also did a 1/2 day of quading and a 1/2 day of white water rafting, both were lots of fun and definitely recommend both. There are too many to mention good places to eat in town which is only a 43 peso cab ride, a couple of our favorites were Mccarthy's Irish Pub beside the supermarket, prices are very reasonable and again, the staff were a lot of fun, another one was Tostados by the main square and if you need your KFC fix, Pollos San Gerardo a few blocks from the main square is a good place to stop, 50 pesos for 2 pieces of fried or grilled chicken with rice and salad, Cafe Dublin, another little Irish pub, just tell the cab driver and they know where it is, they don't open until 6pm and they have wing night on Wednesdays. All in all, this has to be one of the best vacations we have ever had and for the first time we were not ready to get home to our own beds.
My wife and I needed a quiet and sunny getaway in the winter of 2017 and we were told about Huatulco by a friend, we were so blessed, from the warm sunny weather, great food at the resort or if we wanted a different flavor we took a taxi for about $2.50 and went to the small town square closeby. The staff was wonderful and friendly and the AC was great, they told us that we would not have good WI-FI except in the lobby however we were in room 122 and had excellent WI-FI. We felt very safe and were extremely blessed on this trip. The only bad experience on the entire trip is that we were given breakfast at the Secrets resort and also very highly presssured to pay them money for a membership.DO NOT GO TO SECRETS FOR A TOUR, THEY ARE HIGH PRESSURE CROOKS ! The Camino Real is not super high end fancy but clean, quiet, friendly, and lovely !
This resort has many of the same amenities of a larger resort, but has a smaller "feel". Not as many rooms, winding paths, lots of foliage, short walks to restaurants, pool and beach. The room service and pool service was reliable and speedy. Restaurants were of good quality, but not spectacular. But perfectly fine. The seafood at the beach restaurant was really good. And there are some guys who will go diving for oysters. Not part of the hotel package, but definitely worth it. All in all, the resort has a smaller, more local feel than the bigger, international chains. I would definitely return.
We just enjoyed a one week stay at the Camino. We were on an all inclusive package through Sunwing. We have stayed here twice before and this trip was just as good as previous visits. Very relaxing. This is a quiet resort with no restaurant line ups or early morning rush for a beach or pool location. The staff are all wonderful. Very friendly and always willing to help us with our poor Spanish. Our experience with the food was good. Food quality was very good even if the same order is presented differently when ordered a second time. We have a few favourite restaurants in town, so did not eat every meal on the resort. The bar is open untill 11pm and there is no entertainment. Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable, fridge restocked daily with 2 sodas, 4 beers, 2 small waters, small can of Pringles and a chocolate bar. Our room was cleaned daily but not until about 3 or 4 in the afternoon. View was wonderful. We did not upgrade to a plunge pool room. The beach is clean and no problem to get a palapa. Yellow flag all days but the last 2 days we felt the ocean to be too rough for our level of swimming. All other days we were in the ocean numerous times to help cool down.We also were in the pool daily. Very clean and uncrowded. No restriction on going into the pool at night as we have run into at other resorts. Check in and out was quick and easy, very friendly service. We will stay again and would recommend this resort to any one wanting a relaxing, quiet holiday.
