Our Opinion

This is a budget hotel. It is much better to stay at the Las Brisas or Barcelo Huatulco in Tangolunda Bay if you can afford it. If you are looking for a budget hotel this is not a bad choice. It is located in Santa Cruz Bay where the cruise ships dock. There is lots of shopping and restaurants around.

This intimate hotel is known for its comfortable, laid-back atmosphere and warm, friendly service. Travellers on a budget will enjoy the Castillo Huatulco's good value as well as its classic Mexican hacienda-style architecture. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle that will take you to the hotel's nearby Beach Club on the Chahue Bay. An 18-hole golf course is a mere ten minutes away.

Location: Across from the beach, 5 minutes to La Crucecita, and 25 minutes from Bahias de Huatulco International Airport.

Authentic Mexican hotel with convient location and friendly staff

Third time staying at the Castillo. Enjoy the Mexican families and local flavor. So much better here than the big all-inclusive resorts on Tangolunda Bay. Within walking distance of the town, the marina, the Mercado and a pleasant park. Will return.

Best value plus wonderful staff in Santa Cruz

This was our second time at the Castillo, but we met many people who were down for the 4th if not 11th time at this little resort. We made so many friends while there, plus the staff at both the hotel and the beach club were fantastic!! Since the hotel/resort is small, it was very easy to get to know a number of the guests. Our stay surpassed our expectations, and we really appreciated how close we were to the docks and local beaches. The musical evenings were a blast, and the fiesta celebrations once a week were really quite spectacular, especially when set up on the beach at their Beach Club. We will definitely stay at this small resort for any future visits to Santa Cruz, Huatulco.

Bravo Hotel Castillo!!

Went there with my wife for two weeks from Jan.22-Feb5. Have to admit, the first day we were asking ourselves " What have we got ourselves into ? ". But like some other reviewers have mentioned, the Castillo slowly grew on you with time.By our third day there, we were hooked and already making plans to come back later in the year.The beach club and workers at the hotel make the place. We literally lived from sunrise to sunset at the Beach Club. Shout out to Diana, Miriam and Jacko !Met a number of fellow Canadians from western Canada, all in all had an excellent time.

Hotel Castillo

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very nice, affordable. Beach club was on a great Beach, open air bus shuttle was great fun! Rooms were nice and clean. Across from the Holiday Inn, short walk to the marina or beach.

Central location to Santa Cruz beach

Room was basic 2 double beds, a/c was in need of cleaning. Both of us suffered sinus congestion. We had a great quiet room overlooking garden. This hotel is adequate and fits its 3 star rating. It really warm there at 31 degrees everyday so some a/c would be a joy . By the end of day if you're not near the pool you would be cry hot. The bar area remains very warm without a/c. The dining room serves food that is Mexican and hot.Coffee was outstanding. The wifi worked intermittently but was included in our package. So that was great. Staff were good.
