Las Brisas Huatulco
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Las Brisas Huatulco sits on an narrow peninsula over looking Tangolunda Bay. The views from this resort are amazing. The Las Brisas is a great 4 star option for couples and families because of its great value, it often times has very good vacation package prices. However, if the Dreams Huatulco is available at a similar price, that would be a better hotel option. The Las Brisas is located on a hill and doesn't have elevators, so if mobility is an issue, this hotel might not be a good choice. Still a great resort and definitely recommended.
Featuring four beaches and the most stylish accommodations in Huatulco, the Las Brisas is a delightful self-contained retreat set on 50 acres. Snorkel in the clear waters above the coral reef facing the hotel, enjoy tennis, squash, or the best gym in the area, or feast at four restaurants. Golf is less than ten minutes away. Las Brisas has all the features and amenities you need to make your all inclusive Huatulco vacation perfect.
Location: Beachfront at Tangolunda Bay, 3 minutes from Tangolunda Golf Course, 10 minutes from the town of La Crucesita, 30 minutes from the airport.
We were a year ago and although the beach is awesome the resort is quite dated and food was subpar and we all had stomach issues. We went with two young children and the price is good for traveling families. We found this would be good for other families who can't afford the upper 5 star resorts in the area.
Really unique setting--Rooms are 200 or so feet above and around the main lobby.Luckily, the shuttle service is great--no more than a 5 minute wait.There are 3 beaches--all very safe--the most quiet is the far one by the water sport stuff.Staff are all VERY good!! Rooms clean--very nice beds.Food--all very good, but the entrees in some of the a la cartes could use some help.Try the Mexican restaurant for breakfast--a great setting on the beach--when it is open.Book your 3-4 a la carte dinners when you check in at the lobby desk.I shall return!!
We stayed at this resort over Christmas break. The size of this resort is something to be aware of. You are either going to be doing a lot of walking or spending time waiting for golf carts to transport you from place to place. It wasn't a big deal to us, but I couldn't imagine going with children. The nice thing about the resort being so large was that it always seemed quiet.We spent a lot of time in the pool and were disappointed that there were no swim up bars and that you couldn't have drinks in the pool.Other than that, we loved the resort. The service was awesome and the food was the best we have had at an all inclusive. Our room had a beautiful ocean view. The beaches were beautiful and private. Would definitely go back!
I travelled to this resort in March of 2014. I am writing this review 2 1/2 years later so details aren't totally clear in my head. I had a good experience overall . At the time, I was 38 years old, travelling alone and just looking to relax. It was a huge resort, not easily accessible unless you rode in the golf cart trolley that was available 24/7. All you had to do was pick up the phone and they would be there to pick you up in 2 mins or less (from what I found). The staff that drove the trolley's were really awesome with me, teaching me Spanish every day on my ride to the pool/ restaurants. I tipped them very well on my last day when I was leaving. The adult only pool was where I spent most of my time, as well as the hammocks on the beach. The adult only pool was the quietest place in the resort. Sometimes there were a few other people there, most times there was no one. I travelled at the very end of March so perhaps this is just their quiet time. The only complaint that I have about my trip is that it was too hot (between 38-40 Celsius (100-104 F)most days) and I probably wouldn't travel to Huatulco this late in March again. The food at the resort was average, nothing spectacular. The wait staff were very friendly though. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. This is a great resort for families and older couples.
I visited as part of a group of 600 people. We took up a large chunk of the lodging, with all-inclusive food plan. I was blown away by the level of friendly service and the large, modern, comfy rooms. The quality of the shower (Fantastic) mattered to me as the temps were in the high nineties. The layout is sprawling up a hillside so every room had a view, which didnt matter to me as the only reason I went to my room was to lie down in the sublime air conditioning, or to sleep. The three beaches were not crowded, though the place was full, and most people I saw just bobbed out there with smiles on their faces, or in early morning floating on their backs in total joy watching the sun rise. My preference was sitting at the end of one of the several pools at the end of the day's doings, and sticking my feet in the fountain, staring into the middle distance in a row with a couple of BFF's. Try the tamarindo margarita.Mobility: I need a walking stick for a couple of days after all that miserable airplane and airport sitting, getting there. Other folks had more serious issues--no problemo except for the professional whiner. The small golf carts can take you to all three levels of restaurants and venues, you just arrange it. AND, for the "just a little wimpy on 100 stairs" folk like me, you can easily take the scenic route and walk around the whole place on ramps instead of taking the stairs. The scenic route (A walkway along the water around the point) will take you by the sweetest little father-daughter beach bar palapa where you can get for free (on the inclusive package) a Mojito-no-alchohol or a pina-colada-no-alchohol-no-leche to fortify yourself for the lovely walk back in the sun to the venue. There are open air jitneysto take you with a one-minute wait, max, to your uphill room. Sit in the side seats, not the rear seat, to reduce or eliminate the deisel fumes which vary in their intensity primarily by whether you are in the aforementioned whiner class. It's a bit of a disney ride; I braced myself while whizzing past the beautiful careful tropical plantings, it's kinda steep which is why the cheap seats still have a great view.Food: This takes a little attention and turns out great. The steam table offerings are "interesting" the first time but distinctly "meh" for a SF foodie. Big tropical fruit salad bar, smaller western salad bar, choose-it-yourself taco, pancake, pasta, omelet bars are your backup. And then there's the unannounced days when the hot dog and hamburger station incredbly includes little beefsteaks and fresh tuna steaks to grill medium rare perfect. So it's always good to cruise the whole place before you choose. I'm a serious food snob and survived a week happily without joining the whining tribe.Tips: supposedly included but once you find out these multitudes of cheerful hospitable folk make about $5 a day you really want to tip. Bring a large fistful of 20 peso notes, (About a buck U.S.)they don't come that way out of the airport ATM. My experience was that they gave stupendous service even for the few days before our group got exchange to 20's, and after that it was almost embarrassing, how they remember your order and continue the silly joke, etc.Bottom line: great for the individual visitor, incredible for the group booking for something when you are busy all day and want to fall down and loll in the evenings.
