A great choice, if not the best choice, for anyone visiting Huatulco. The Dreams Huatulco offers good service, modern renovated rooms, lots of pools and great a la carte restaurants. Whether you are looking for lots of activities or a relaxing, quiet vacation, this resort can cater to both. The Spa at this resort is amazing! A superb option for anyone looking for a luxury resort in Huatulco.
Always a popular destination for sunseekers, Dreams Huatulco is located on the beautiful Bay of Tangolunda. Enjoy a wide array of sports, activities and entertainment, hosted by the activity team. Generous inclusions range from 24-hour room service to an in-room mini-bar stocked with soft drinks, mineral water and beer. The variety of fun activities for both adults and kids makes this hotel a great spot for singles, couples and families alike.
Location: Beachfront next to the Barcelo Huatulco on Tangolunda Bay, 7 min to La Crucecita, 25 min from the airport.
This is my first time writing a review, but since I verbally tell EVERYONE that when I go away I ALWAYS compare it to Dreams Huatulco I decided to finally submit one. This is my 3rd time here, the first two with my family including children and the last trip with friends for a Wedding. Once again, Dreams delivers with service, food, cleanliness, space and amenities. There are so many areas and pools that you can choose to be busy or quiet, with children or not ! There is always tons of food, drink and things to do with snorkeling/kayaking directly available on beach to a morning cycle (casual and not as humid as you would think). Try everything, it's included! Saw Yoga every morning and people quietly reading or working out too.....Every day we would get coffee from the CoCo Cafe, then Mamosas with breakfast in the restaurant. Bring a Bubba cup (Cdn Tire or Walmart) for cold water or your fav beer/beverage all day. The Hostess' at all restaurants are your most important people if you need anything and Mgmt will direct you to them. I have Celiac disease and require Gluten Free food, as did 2 others in our large group , along with Vegetarian meals. I know from experience that meeting with the Hostess/Captain/Head Chef (one of these) is key. I had EXCELLENT service day and night. IRLANDA SALINAS and many others Guadalupe, Fabiola, & Lupian all deserve promotions. I was offered a specially prepared, fresh meal at every sitting in order to avoid any cross contamination of food. If I chose the buffet, they would walk me through to ensure I only consumed what was gluten free and safe. AMAZING. I did not get sick once and am grateful for the fantastic service, particularly by Irlanda. This was also applied in every A La Carte restaurant and our friends wanted to be GF to get the special meals and service I rec'd ! Since I have been here before I will mention that we were a bit disappointed with Oceania seafood restaurant this time, service and food were only o.k. when everything is usually excellent. Also, our group found the bartenders in the evening at the front lobby bar Barracuda a bit negative and know .....we all tip well. EVERYWHERE else is over the top friendly, helpful, clean, fast and simply great from the cleaning staff to the hard working beach servers. No drama with towels or chairs. Check in/out is seamless.Tip: Go to George on the beach for jewelry. Tip: Do not attempt to swim/snorkel to the other side of the rocks to see neighbor resort - just climb the rocks-too many waves and sea urchins! Do snorkel all along the rocks and bring bread. We crashed our friends wedding and by all accounts Dreams knocked it out of the park from the wedding on the beach to the meal and music man that had the group dancing all night (with many props and crazy lights). We all ended up in the pools in full dresses and suits! Rooms are clean and bottled water is provided , but you can also get free bottled water from anywhere all day and night. Tip; Bring a good floatie or two, just nice to have in the pool or at the beach. Its very hot all the time and your feet get burned even with sandals on in the sand. I also recommend taking a quick cab to LaBacana beach for a different beach and mud bath. Go for 1/2 day and enjoy some cold drinks and fresh nachos at the little restaurants right on the black sand beach. Tip: wear old bath suit for mud bath! The Disco is the only late night bar and not much- but all the young partiers can go into town for cheap dinner and night out, we were usually crashing by midnight after full days of sun and drink. DREAMS is an excellent choice for groups, couples, families with 5/5 from me. It is what you make it as there is room for all to do their own thing. I will return!
First of all, I never usually take the time to write reviews about resorts that I have visited, but this time, I think this resort really deserves my review. I have read many reviews before making our decision so I know how this can help. *POOL/BEACH*POSITIVES:I really love how everything is close; it doesn't take that much time and energy to go from your room to the beach, pools, restaurants, bars, etc. I personally dislike big resorts (like 800-1000+ rooms) because it feels like everything is far, beaches and pools are crowded and there are lineups everywhere. I was extremely satisfied with the size of the resort and although it was high season, there were not that many line ups and it didn't feel too crowded.NEGATIVES:It was hard to find chairs in the shade at the pool and the beach (maybe because the hotel was at maximum capacity?). Lots of people use towels, books and toys to save their spots. The sad thing is that these chairs remain unused for half the day. Because we have a toddler, we really needed a chair in the shade, so my husband had to wake up early to save a chair just like everybody else did, but I least we were using our chairs all day (besides when we would go for lunch for about 1h).SOLUTION:In the past in other resorts, I would just show up to the beach after breakfast and find chairs right away and then leave the chairs, go for lunch and find new chairs by a pool. I really wish that they would figure out something to make this situation better. One thing for sure is that this wouldn't stop me from going back to this resort.*SERVICE*POSITIVE: The entire staff were amazing. Everyone was friendly and smiling. We really enjoyed seeing Nuzzle everyday (the hostess at the Seaside Grill), she was truly incredible. Also, Hanum from The World Cafe was amazing! Since we have dietary restrictions (Vegan and Gluten Free), we dealt with him almost every night and he made sure that everything was perfect for us. They were able to prepare everything that we asked for. I'm really grateful for the room service, since we have a little one, I called a few times after she went to bed and didn't feel "trapped" in our room. Also, Laura the Photographer was amazing, very friendly, knowledgeable and really knows how to take magical pictures. The hostess at the Tapenyaki restaurant was also amazing, all the waiters there too!NEGATIVE: I wish that we had a recycle bin in our room (which is not a big deal).*FOOD*POSITIVE: I really enjoyed that we had the option to eat inside or outside at breakfast, lunch and dinner. We loved eating outside at night at The World Cafe, there was a different set/up and theme each night, which was pretty impressive. The food was very good and there was a lot of variety. I really enjoyed the amazing selection of fresh fruits and fresh juices for breakfast. I also really appreciate that I was able to make myself green salads that didn't have dressing already on it.NEGATIVE: These are small details, but personally find that instead of sprinkling grated cheese on salads or steamed and grilled vegetables, they could have a few bowls of grated cheese at a few places in the buffet for people to add to their own plates. It’s a small detail, but it would be more convenient for lactose intolerant, vegans and also people who just don’t like cheese (yes, that exists!). I also wish that the variety of fruits at lunch and dinner would be the same as the one at breakfast.*ENTERTAINMENT*POSITIVE: I really enjoyed the daily yoga practices outside twice daily. There was also great music and entertainment everyday at the main pool. I loved the live music while having dinner at the World Cafe. I also loved the pool tables at the main bar. There was also a “nightclub/bar”, which is good, but I have never been.NEGATIVE: I was a little disappointed with the nightly shows since they finished at 9:30pm. I never really made it to a show, but again, this is not a big deal for me and I would still go to this resort.OVERALL, I would definitely return to this resort. The negatives are just little things that wouldn’t stop me from going back. This is one of the best resorts that I have been to (and I have travelled to many destinations in the past). Everything was excellent; service, rooms, food, drinks, pool, beach, etc.
Just about to depart from a week at Dreams Huatulco. All was as we expected from a Dreams resorts. Lots of pools - had to go early to secure chairs. Service at restaurants was attentive - favorite was the Asian restaurant then Italian. Buffet had wide selection for even picky eaters. Evening shoews were done mostly in Spanish as majority of guests were Spanish speaking. A couple words of caution - sun here is extremely strong and hot - would recommend high spf sunscreen and sun shirts for kids (We ended up buying them here). Also would used bottles water for everything - can't be sure but we didn't and we all paid for it a bit. Kids club staff were greatWould definitely come back
Our first trip to Mexico, and an all inclusive. Family trip, 3 of us (mom, dad, 14 year old daughter). Airport arrival/departure in Huatulco excellent and only 20 mins to resort. Hotel spotless clean. Always someone cleaning. Staff super polite and appreciative. A special callout to Ana who was there for us during the majority of our meals. A tip goes a long way. Rooms quiet, air conditioned. Food was excellent. Always fresh and replenished. When we arrived we were hungry and our room wasn't ready yet. What a relief to be able to go into air conditioned comfort and eat whatever we wished for! Beach towels provided, sometimes had to reserve chairs. Beach was great although undertow a bit strong. Great resort, highly recommended!
My husband and I stayed at Dreams Huatulco in early March, and we loved it. This was our first trip to any Dreams hotel, we would go back again.Huatulco was beautiful, very relaxed and very safe. We spent some time in Santa Cruz, and in La Crucecita (both a short cab ride away) and felt very safe the whole time. We had a ground room floor looking out at the adults only pool near the Japanese resturaunt (great location). We had originally had a room on the third floor which was also nice, when we asked to be moved to the ground floor the staff was very accomodating and the move was done quickly and smoothly. All the staff at Dreams went over and above to make sure our stay was great. We were always very impressed with the food selection in the buffet for breakfast and lunch. There was always a large selection, and at lunch there was the option to have the meat of your choosing (tuna, shrimp, snapper, beef, chicken, pork etc.) cooked in front of you to your liking. We tried all the a la carte resturants for supper, our two favorites were Oceana and Seaside Grill - but they were all fairly good.Drinks were good, there are many bars to choose from. There is no swim up bar, but pleanty of bars near to the pools and also staff that would bring drinks on the beach or by the pool.The beach was beautiful, and there was good snorkeling right from the beach. While out on a boat excursion we saw a whale, many dolphins and many turtles - worth the trip!The spa was very nice, a little bit on the expensive side, but you do have access to their pools and water services when you book a service, which helps make up for the expense. We can't wait to return!
