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.
We returned to Dreams for the seventh time seeking warm weather, great pools and wonderful staff. We found all these once again. New management made some changes, big and small, that led to disappointments. Most noticeable were those related to food and liquor resupply.In any event our experience follows:We again paid a premium for a “preferred” room which this time turned out to be on the 4th floor right above the lobby lounge. If you want a quiet room, trust me this is not it. The resort was full so no options were made available. If this is the way returning guests are treated I wonder how first-time guests are received. Perhaps, they make more of an effort for them or vacation club guests. I don’t need a banner on my door saying “returning guest” but realized we felt a bit ignored. The preferred lounge now has a bartender which is a nice touch. Evening bartender Graciella is really helpful. They had top shelf vodka day one and then not again until the day we were departing. A premium is paid for preferred and I am not sure if it is worth it when a certain standard cannot be met. We have never experienced this in the past and wonder if this is another modification by the new management.The lobby bar continually ran out of different levels of alcohol. Kudos to Rodolfo who continues to be the best bartender in the resort. Enjoyed the wait service of Eddie.Again we note how special the staff are at resort. As an example, we were warmly welcomed by Isela in the lobby lounge even before we checked in. Many of the staff have been here for a number years. The buffet ( World Café): We particularly have to mention Oliva who always provides excellent service in the World Café and who made an effort to have a pizza made for us on the last day. This is one of the changes the new management has made. No more pizza. What a loss. Another change is that there was ice cream only once in the week, where they used to have it every day. If you enjoyed pretzels in the past, they are now only available in the coffee shop. These may seem like small things but they are provided as examples of change. I believe the buffet meals should be considered more of a 3-star quality with the cutbacks we found. The best advice we can give is if you choose the buffet for lunch or supper, go early before choices become limited. Most of the evening meals seemed to be outside rather than at the buffet itself, not our favorite, so we went to the Italian on several occasions and thanks again to Julio were able to have an off the menu meal. Unfortunately other restaurants seemed to be closed for private functions so the choices became limited on where to go. One of the most positive comments we can make is that the pools were maintained in great shape. A great thanks goes to Genero who quietly does his job keeping the pools clean and hauling umbrellas and chairs. He never seems to stop working and always has a smile. A good change was delaying the availability of towels to a reasonable hour. It made for more access to spots at the pool more fair. This is still a very good resort and we may return but with lower expectations.
My wife and I flew down on a direct flight with WestJet. The resort has some lovely attributes. Located in a bay with 5 other resorts. The beach is lovely,but rip tides can be tricky. We did several through Amstar which were all great. The coffee plantation took you up into the mountain to an organic,family run operation. We took a bird watching tour with Mateo who was fantastic. We did the 7 bay tour which took us to this lovely snorkelling area. The resort uses Common Black Hawks to keep pesky birds away.The one complaint we had was access to restaurants on certain days. They have six restaurants in resort. Three days during the evening two were closed to private functions. We enjoy sitting down for an A'La carte meal and on those evening there were long wait times45 minutes. They need to put more staff on and use pagers to make theses evenings more enjoyable.
We stayed at this resort January 31, 2017 to February 14, 2017. This resort lived up to our expectations. Although a smaller resort than we usually go to, the convenience of going back to your room, lobby, restaurants, beach, etc. within 5 minutes of each other was a bonus. The resort itself is a bit dated, but very, very clean. The entire resort staff need to be commended for their efficiency and hard work. I have never heard "It is my pleasure" so many times in one day!! . A special thank you to: Abigail, Sophia, Brenda, Eligio, Jesus, Crisino, Celcilia, Francesco, Alier and many others whose names we didn't obtain. The buffet and restaurants were very good. It is a bonus to not have to book the a la cartes ahead. Having access to unlimited towels was also a great feature. We have been to other resorts in Mexico where getting your "one" towel a day exchanged was a challenge. The Beach and Pools -- immaculate. The ocean was a bit strong some days, so we just opted for one of the infinity pools that overlook the ocean. We are not normally "pool" people, but when the temperature of the pool is the same as the ocean (warm!!), and they overlook the ocean, it's easy to adapt quickly! The bar service for both the beach and pools was the best we have ever had! The bathrooms throughout the resort (including beach access) were the cleanest we've ever experienced! You will find the attendants cleaning continually!The rooms were very clean and the maid service twice a day was great. No issues with having clean towels when needed. The beds were very comfortable and clean.We booked one boat tour from Tony Lopez (he will find you on the beach). There were six of us in our party and it was a great way to spend 6 hours touring the 9 bays, snorkeling, swimming, viewing whales, dolphins, black tuna, catching fish, etc. I would highly recommend booking with Tony. A big thanks to our tour captain and guide - Hector and Caesar - for a great excursion!The weather was unbelievable - 32 - 36 each day for 14 days! When other reviews indicated there was no need for a sweater in the evening, they were absolutely correct! - I think it dipped down to 23 - 25 each night! We had access to unlimited bottled water at any time throughout the resort, which was a much appreciated addition!! This resort was higher priced than we normally pay, but the added bonuses of the great weather, no booking of al la cartes, unlimited towels, no wristbands, excellent service, etc. all compensated for this. We would absolutely recommend this resort for your winter vacation. We don't usually book the same resort twice, but we will definitely consider returning to this one.
we have been coming to huatulco for almost 15 years,and continue coming back because of the wonderful people,the best weather and the staff thatb is always going the extra mile to please you.we always think about going different places,but continue to come back to huatulco.this trip we took the 3 level tour which was outstanding.the guide(carlos)was most informed and made the trip a pleasure
We just had an incredible vacation in huatulco at dreams. The facilities were laid out so well this resort felt cozy. The food was delicious and plentiful. The best part of it was the staff. Naji Taveras made us feel like we were staying in her very home. No question or request went unanswered and she went so far as to replace the luggage that was destroyed in the trip down. The benefits of the "unlimited club" there are truly unlimited. Rodolfo, Edie, Gabino, Reyna, and Manuel Puente "El Capitan" made the evenings in the lobby super entertaining and eventful. Alan Cruz and Israel Lopez made our afternoons terrific as well. Everyone was amazing there right down to our Housekeeper Carmen. There are truly to many to name. Thanks Dreams Huatulco for one of our best vacations ever,
